RUMOR - Life is Strange coming to Switch

Stranger things have happened

For years now, I've been wondering why Life is Strange hasn't made its way to Switch. The game seems like a perfect fit for the platform. Visual novels are all over the Switch, and while Life is Strange isn't a traditional visual novel, it certainly shares a few similar elements. Thankfully, it seems the game might soon be making its way over.

An industry insider over on ResetEra has shared a bunch of information on upcoming Life is Strange titles, and according to them, the original game is making its way to Switch. This insider has shared details with the staff at ResetEra that weren't made public, but staff felt the materials they saw were enough to verify the insider's claims. That said, the insider has since requested that the info be removed from the forum.

Now all we can do is sit back and wait for an official announcement. A Life is Strange port really does seem like a no-brainer, so hopefully this turns out to be true.

RUMOR: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD coming to Switch this year

The more Zelda the better!

Wondering if Nintendo has some more Legend of Zelda content coming to Switch to celebrate the 35th anniversary? Rumor has it two more classic titles are on the way this year.

Both Eurogamer's Tom Phillips and VGC's Andy Robinson have taken to Twitter to share some insider info on what's coming. According to them, Switch owners will be seeing both Wind Waker HD and Twilight Princess HD on the Switch sometime this year. Again, nothing coming from official sources, but it certainly seems more than plausible.

Hopefully Nintendo comes out and confirms this news sometime after March. It's like Nintendo wants the Mario anniversary to wrap up before they start talking Zelda plans.

RUMOR: Jason Momoa offered the role of Knuckles in Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel

Good or bad pick?

While fans are trying to figure out who'll voice Sonic in upcoming games following Roger Craig Smith's departure, a new rumor about the voice for another character has popped up.

Online scuttlebutt popped up today about Knuckles, who'll apparently have a sizable role in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel. While there's nothing official out there right now, rumor has it that Aquaman's Jason Momoa has been offered the role. Whether he'll take it or not remains to be seen.

Some fans are convinced that the next Fortnite crossover could be with Five Nights at Freddy's

The man behind the rumor.

Fans of both Fortnite and Five Nights at Freddy's have been compiling evidence that a crossover between the two franchises could be in order.

Speculation began when well-known Fortnite leaker "HYPEX" discovered hidden files through a datamine of the latest Fortnite update. These files include footstep sound effects that resemble Foxy's dash to the office door in the original FNAF, and an unreleased skin codenamed "FrenchFry." In the past, the first letter of each word in a Fortnite codename ended up perfectly matching the character's name. For example, "TourBus" was the codename for Tyler "Ninja" Blevins. The "FF" initials pair up nicely with "Freddy Fazbear," the main antagonist in the FNAF franchise.

If you're still not convinced, some Fortnite content creators received a promotional teaser package from Epic Games containing a bag of tokens, which are similar to the ones found at arcades like Chuck-E-Cheese (however, others think this could be hinting at Geralt from The Witcher).

The "evidence" of this crossover is admittedly very vague, but Freddy Fazbear would somewhat fit the "Bounty Hunter" theme of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5. We'll just have to wait and see!

RUMOR - The sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild listed to be released "2nd quarter of 2021" according to Austrian retailer

An Austrian retailer by the name of Gameware states that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2Β will be released in the second quarter of 2021. The retailer has been given credit for correctly predicting the release date for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of MemoryΒ in the past, but it is currently unknown if this release window is an accidental but accurate date or just a mere speculated one. Nintendo did have a habit of dropping game trailers and releasing major first-party games just a few months afterward back in 2020, so it is possible that Nintendo may perform something similar again this year.

Official Rabbids Twitter account changes their handle from 'RabbidsOfficial' to 'MarioRabbids', fueling speculation that a Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle sequel could be in the works

A small glimmer of hope!

Reddit user ThemeParkFan2020 discovered an unusual and possibly suspicious change to Ubisoft's official Rabbids Twitter account handle, leading some to speculate that an announcement for a possible sequel to Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle may be imminent. Previously @RabbidsOfficial, the username has been updated as @MarioRabbids. This change is particularly interesting considering it happening so suddenly, almost 4 years after the release of the original crossover. Due to the success of the original, it doesn't seem too unlikely that a successor could be in development. We'll just have to wait and see!

RUMOR - Apex Legends may come to Switch on Feb. 2nd, 2021

Legend has it

EA originally wanted to have Apex Legends on Switch back in 2020, but the pandemic pushed things back. Since that initial reveal and delay announcement, we haven't heard a peep about release dates. That's what makes this latest rumor so interesting!

The official Japanese YouTube account for Apex Legends put up a new trailer for the game that focused on Season 8. The text under that trailer mentioned a whole bunch of details, and surprisingly showed something about the Switch version.

"And on February 2nd, it will be possible to play on Switch at the same time as the start of Season 8!"

That blurb was only found on the Japanese video, but even that version has had the line removed now. Was the listing a mistake in the first place, or did the Japanese video let the cat out of the bag a bit early?

Rumors of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes for Switch persist

Is it really going to happen?

Pokemon Diamond and Pearl originally released for the DS back in 2006, making it over 15 years since the games debuted. Fans have been clamoring for remakes for awhile now, and there's been quite a few rumors about that request making its way to Switch. While we still don't have a confirmation from Nintendo or Pokemon Co., the rumor has once again popped up.

The Spanish Pokemon fan site Centro Pokemon is saying that sources close to the project have confirmed that Diamond and Pearl remakes are indeed being worked on for Switch. Apparently we'll see the reveal of these remakes in February at some point, and they stick more closely to the original games than Pokemon Let's GO did with Pokemon Red/Blue.

Adding fuel to the fire, it seems there's something going on with the domain diamondpearl.pokemon.com. While you get a 403 error when visiting, this is different from domains for other Pokemon games. Trying to visit both blackwhite.pokemon.com and http://rubysapphire.pokemon.com give you no return at all.

Is this all just speculation, or are we actually nearing a reveal? February isn't far off, so I guess we'll all find out if this rumor is true or not soon enough!

Knuckles rumored to have a sizable role in the Sonic the Hedgehog movie sequel

Punch it up

We know for a fact that the Sonic the Hedgehog movie is getting a sequel, and there's a pretty good chance Tails will have some time in the spotlight. That said, it seems another big Sonic character will be getting some love as well.

Rumors are floating around concerning Knuckles, who will supposedly have a notable role in the sequel. This is going to be considerably more than a cameo, although details haven't been shared. It does seem that Knuckles gliding and wall-climbing abilities will be showcased as well.
