After a few weeks of slowly teasing out Nintendo Switch rumors and speculation, Editor in Chief of LPVG Laura Kate Dale has come forward with a deluge of details both new and old regarding the Nintendo Switch. Given she and her team were at the forefront of accurate Switch rumors back when the system was still known as the NX these new claims may be more credible than most. As a result they could spoil a significant chunk of Nintendo’s January 12th event, so be sure to turn back if you want to remain in the dark.

Not only do we have a reiteration of the previously rumored PAL release date for the system, March 17th, but a list of games that are planned for release in 2017 and beyond.
Of course this list is far from complete as it’s only collating games from sources close to the projects at hand, but it could definitely give us an impression of how Nintendo is tackling the Switch’s first year. Unlike the Wii U which was front-loaded with major games and had severe software droughts for the following months, this rumor suggests Nintendo is planning on pushing back certain games to fill these spots, ranging from a Xenoblade Chronicles X port in the summer to what is apparently a Pikmin reboot later in the year.
Other notable games are the recently announced Telltale Guardians of the Galaxy game and The Silver Case, one of the first games by No More Heroes creator Goichi Suda that saw a recent PC re-release.
We’ll see just how this rumor holds up at the Nintendo Switch event on January 12th.Leave a Comment
