Will the rumors come true?
Is there a Nintendo Direct around the corner? Nothing official has been said, but the rumors are certainly swirling. It seems there’s a lot of smoke building, and that usually leads to fire, but only time will tell in this case.
Causing a lot of speculation this time is a tweet from insider Pyoro_ND. This particular Twitter account has leaked the existence of quite a few projects in the past, revealing Sonic Superstars and Everybody 1-2-Switch!, and also confirming new Samba de Amigo and Armored Core titles right before they were announced.
This time around, Pyoro_ND has said that Nintendo is working a brand-new 2D Mario game for the Switch, along with a remake from the Super Nintendo era. The chatter surrounding a new 2D Mario has been going for quite some time now, but with Pyoro_ND checking it, the rumor seems more than likely. As for the SNES game remake, there are a variety of titles being thrown out there, with Super Mario RPG and Chrono Trigger sitting near the top.
Again, this is nothing but rumor and speculation at this point. We’ll just have to keep fingers crossed for a Nintendo Direct in the near future, and then we’ll see if these rumors end up being true!
