New inside info casts doubt on the Mass Effect Trilogy coming to Switch

This rumor is my least favorite on the Citadel

For months now, we've been hearing rumors about a Mass Effect Trilogy in the works. EA is yet to confirm that release, but we're hearing that a reveal is coming very soon. Unfortunately, the other half of the rumor that says the package is coming to Switch may not be correct.

According to industry inside Jeff Grubb, the Mass Effect Trilogy is real, but it's not coming to Switch. At least not in 2020, that is.

“EA has multiple games coming to Nintendo Switch and Mass Effect is definitely not one of them. Not yet, anyhow. If that happens, it won’t happen in that one-year window that they talked about in their last shareholder meeting.”

In other words, there's still a chance the collection could come to Switch, but it's not going to happen this year. That's something we've seen with countless other multiplatform games, so it wouldn't be a surprise. Switch owners are used to waiting a few extra months to get their version of a game. Let's hope that's the case with the Mass Effect Trilogy, rather than the package not coming to Switch at all.

Another retailer adds a listing for the Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered on Switch

The rumors are piling up

Multiple retailers have added a listing for Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered to their websites, only to yank them a few days later. Now we have yet another retailer who wants in on the action.

Czech retailer Herni-Svet has added a listing for the game, complete with the Oct. 15th, 2020 release date we've seen floating around already. This retailer has a different cover art from other listings thought. It certainly looks like a legit cover art, but that's just speculation for now.

If this package really is coming out Oct. 15th, 2020, then EA has to be revealing it in the very near future!

RUMOR: Smash Bros. Ultimate's next character may be revealed very soon

Is a reveal coming?

Looks like we might be hearing about the next Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character in the near future. Advertisements for the current Fighter Pass characters are up at retailers, but those advertisements are set to be removed from stores on Oct. 4th, 2020. The last time we saw a situation with ads like this, the next DLC character was revealed just a few days before. We'll find out if the speculation is right in just a couple of weeks!

Rumors of Nintendo and Netflix teaming for a Legend of Zelda project swirl once more, Tom Holland reportedly being eyed for Link


For years now, there has been a rumor of Netflix and Nintendo ironing out a deal to create some sort of Legend of Zelda feature. Nothing ever seems to come of it, and the rumblings die down over and over again. Today that speculation has picked up speed once more, and now there's a Hollywood name being floated with the project.

Inside sources that have correctly leaked previous Netflix projects are once again saying that the Legend of Zelda project at Netflix is the real deal. Furthermore, the powers that be apparently want to land Tom Holland for the role of Link. Obviously Netflix and Nintendo aren't going to make a peep about this, and the same goes for Holland.

Earlier this week, Nintendo did say that they're working on more 'visual content expansion projects' beyond the Mario movie, but held back specifics. If there is indeed a Zelda feature in the works at Netflix, it would definitely be a part of this new push.

RUMOR - Monster Hunter Switch first details leaked

There has been an ongoing rumor that suggests a new Monster Hunter game is coming out for the Nintendo Switch. If this game does exist, then a few of its details have been leaked according to a recent Reddit thread, and the rumor states the following information:

  • The game is called Monster Hunter Rise
  • You have a new dog companion
  • You'll be use some sort of new fairy grappling hook that you can use to grapple to anything
  • The release date will be slated for March 2021 in Japan.

The Nintendo Direct Mini partner showcase will be happening shortly, so if this rumor is true, then the game will likely appear there. Otherwise, this is just a rumor for now.

RUMOR - Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered coming to Switch according to Portuguese retailer

EA finally supporting Switch?

A remaster of the Mass Effect Trilogy has been floating around the rumor mill for a while, but now the Portuguese retailer Gaming Replay has put full force on the gas.

While it should definitely be taken with a heaping spoonful of salt, the retailer is now taking pre-orders for a Nintendo Switch version of "Mass Effect Trilogy Remastered" with an October 2020 placeholder release date. If the game really is launching that soon, we should definitely be hearing some official news from EA sometime soon.

EDIT: Since the publishing of this article, the retail listings have been removed. Stay tuned for potential updates!

RUMOR - There may not be a second round of stock for Super Mario 3D All-Stars

This one will be rare indeed

Nintendo has already said that Super Mario 3D All-Stars is going to be a limited-time release. Just how limited will it be? Comment from one retailer makes it seem like those interest in buying better make sure they get in on the item at launch.

A customer of Base.com had their pre-order for Super Mario 3D All-Stars cancelled, and it seems that all customers are in the same boat. In an email sent customers, Base has said that Nintendo and their UK distributors are unable to give reassurance that more stock will come after launch. That doesn't mean there's no chance at all for a restock, but it does make the situation iffy.

Again, if you want to lock down a physical copy for this game, make sure you do all you can to get one early on.

Rumor - Hong Kong distributor lists Ninja Gaiden Trilogy for Nintendo Switch

The largest video game distributor in Hong Kong, Game Source Entertainment, has listed Ninja Gaiden Trilogy as an upcoming Nintendo Switch title. The game would include Ninja Gaiden SigmaNinja Gaiden Sigma 2, and Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge and would be released in March 2021. Nothing has been officially confirmed just yet, but the listing is suspicious to say the least! 

RUMOR: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition seems to be heading to Switch


While not announced by the developer or publisher, it seems that Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Complete Edition is on its way to Switch. The Switch eShop back-end has been updated with a listing for the game, and it was added on Sept. 1st, 2020. This is much different from a retailer listing, as it already shows that the game is ready and waiting on the eShop. We just need to see the official reveal, and then the game will be pushed live on its launch date.

Rumor - A Nintendo Switch bundle featuring Super Mario 3D All-Stars Bundle appears on Swedish website

A Swedish website has posted a listing for what appears to be a Nintendo Switch bundle featuring the upcoming Super Mario 3D All-Stars title. It is possible that Nintendo may release the game alongside some sort of limited-edition Nintendo Switch, but at the moment, Nintendo has not said anything regarding an upcoming bundle. Furthermore, there are no pictures of the bundle, so it is unknown if the game would be packaged with the Nintendo Switch or just be sold separately alongside the console itself. For the time being, we will just have to wait for an official announcement or comment, but given the fact that the game is set to release in just a couple weeks, it should not be long before this listing is proven either true or false.
