RUMOR - Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake and NieR Replicant slated for release on Nintendo Switch

According to Amazon, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake and NieR Replicant are slated for release on Nintendo Switch. Prince of Persia is slated for release in January 2021 and NieR Replicant is slated for release in April 2021. If both of these rumors are true, then their game releases are not too far off, and their respective companies, Ubisoft and Square Enix, should be expected to make official announcements soon. Until then, these listings shall be marked as a rumor.

Following a recent data breach, leaks suggest that Capcom is localizing The Great Ace Attorney and its sequel onto Nintendo Switch

Capcom has recently suffered from a data breach, and as a result, some of their information regarding upcoming game releases may have been revealed. A notable example is The Great Ace Attorney, a game that follows the Phoenix Wright line of games that was never localized, may finally be released in North America via the Nintendo Switch. The game's sequel, The Great Ace Attorney 2 also appears to be in development for Nintendo Switch. The evidence for this comes from the fact that Capcom appears to have already set plans to record English voiceovers for the games. Whether or not Capcom will announce this games' official localization has yet to be seen, but since this information currently comes from a leak, nothing is official just yet.

RUMOR: A monthly subscription service might be heading to Fortnite

More V-Bang for your V-Bucks

While Fortnite already has a seasonal battle pass that players can buy, it seems that Epic is considering another paid feature for the game. A survey has been sent around that asks players if they'd be interested in a monthly subscription service. This service would include discounts on V-Bucks, provide access to exclusive content, allow early access to the battle pass, and throw in some extra V-Bucks for your trouble.

While a final price for this service isn't locked down, the survey does point to a price that could be as high as $16. That would be pretty steep, especially considering pricing for the battle pass.

RUMOR - A Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 demo might be on the way

Feeling puzzled?

Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 is coming to Switch on Dec. 8th, 2020, but it looks like we'll be getting a demo before that.

Gamstat, a service that tracks releases coming to the Playstation store, has spotted a listing and icon for a Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 demo. This is the same way details leaked about a Trials of Mana demo. That's about as good a piece of evidence you can ask for, and there's little doubt SEGA will announce a demo for multiple platforms in the near future.

RUMOR - Another round of evidence points to Crash 4: It's About Time coming to Switch

Is it just a matter of time?

I think we all expect Crash 4: It's About Time to head to Switch. Activision tried to pretend that both the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy weren't coming over, but they eventually did. People have been feeling the same way about Crash 4: It's About Time, and now we have some more evidence to back that up.

Dataminers have been digging through the PS4 version of the game, and they found some hints at what could be a Switch version. Information in the INI file mentions a Switch version, and it even references the project name for Spyro Reignited Trilogy on Switch, which Crash 4: It's About Time would no doubt use as a base to build the game upon. This would also indicate that Toys for Bob would be handling the port, which is the same team that handled the Spyro Reignited Trilogy and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy Switch ports.

You can hear the full rundown of details on this info in the video above. Check out the snippet at the 3:09 mark.

RUMOR - Resident Evil 3: Cloud Version coming to Switch

Is a second Cloud outing for Resident Evil on the way?

Switch owners can enjoy the Cloud version of Control on Switch today, and a Cloud version of Hitman is on the way as well. It looks like those games might not be the only Cloud titles on the way to Switch, as an interesting discovery has been found by dataminers.

When you launch the Cloud version of Control on Switch, you'll get directed to the following site. Dataminers were quick to dig through the site to see what else they could find, which led to the discovery of the icon above.

Capcom hasn't announced Resident Evil 3: Cloud Version for Switch, but the move would make sense. Resident Evil 7 got a Cloud release in Japan, and it's likely Capcom wants to continue that move with other installments in the franchise. Now we just sit back and wait for them to confirm it!

RUMOR - Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity may be getting a demo soon

A listing on Nintendo of Korea's website appears to suggest that a demo for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is on the way. More specifically, there appears to be a mention of the demo allowing the player to play through the opening portion of the game and that save data can be transferred to the full version of the game once it releases. 

RUMOR: Nintendo looking into mini-LED screen for Switch revamp

Yep, the rumors return

Yep, we're talking Switch Pro rumors once again. The rumor that just won't go away is back, and this time we have some supposed insight into the screen Nintendo will be using.

According to the Economic Daily News, Nintendo will be u sing a mini-LED display from the Taiwanese company Innolux Corporation on a Switch revamp. Going with a mini-LED screen over the current LCD screen the Switch/Switch Lite uses should allow for a better picture overall, and could pave the way for improved battery life as well.

Just to be clear, this is not a smaller screen, despite the mini-LED name. Don't think of this as some sort of Switch mini. It's just a term for the screen itself, and doesn't indicate an even smaller form factor for the rumored Switch revamp.

RUMOR - Pokemon Sword and Shield debug files may have leaked


Nintendo has been suffering from a constant string of leaks for months now, with all sorts of content tied to legacy titles getting shared across the internet. Today is a bit different though, as it appears some content from a recent game has been discovered.

While we can't confirm the validity of the content shared, rumor has it that debug files from Pokemon Sword and Shield have hit the web. This includes an early look at the game, with completely unfinished areas, textures, and even basic geometry. We're not going to share the content here, as it appears this has been obtained from Nintendo/Pokemon Co. in an unlawful manner. There's no doubt both companies are hunting down the source of the leak as we speak.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!

RUMOR: Super Mario 3D All-Stars may have broken a U.S. record for 3D Mario sales

Let's crunch some numbers

The NPD results for September 2020 showed that Super Mario 3D All-Stars debuted in the second spot on the charts, losing out to Marvel's Avengers. The thing is, when you take a closer look at the data, there's a much different story going on here.

First up, the data for Marvel's Avengers includes digital and physical sales combined. With Super Mario 3D All-Stars, the NPD position is based on physical sales only. That makes Mario's second place finish much more impressive overall!

Along with that, more specific NPD data has apparently leaked. That gives us some actual numbers to work with.

In the case of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, the total physical U.S. sales for September 2020 reportedly sit at around 1,165,000 units. The game managed to sell that total in about 2 weeks' worth of time. The previous record-holder for U.S. launch month sales goes to either Super Mario Galaxy (1,120,000 units in 3 weeks) or Super Mario Odyssey (1,100,000 units in 1 week), depending on how you want to look at things. Obviously digital sales were a factor for Odyssey and not Galaxy, and we don't have the data on how many digital units were sold.

Super Mario 3D All-Stars had a huge retail debut, but there's no doubt the digital numbers have been insane as well. The weekly charts showed the game sitting at the #1 position for every single week, so it was definitely pulling in big numbers. If we knew those digital numbers and could add them into the physical NPD total, there's very little doubt that Super Mario 3D All-Stars would be the new record-holder for a 3D Mario title when it comes to debut month sales.
