Nintendo Switch Rumor Round-Up: Zelda, Mario, Mother, and More

Nintendo Switch

It seems like it’s been an eternity since Nintendo unveiled the Switch – the hybrid portable-console we were all anticipating late last year.  They won’t say much else on the device until January 13th, where a Nintendo Switch event will talk up the price, the launch line-up, and the future of the Switch.

Laura Kate Dale’s been on the forefront of these rumor mills, and she’s been hitting the mark fairly frequently. Her first tip is a far cry from what she previously reported – The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will in fact launch with the Nintendo Switch this March. Given that information can change in a short manner when it’s unannounced, Dale’s bound to be proven wrong a little bit of the time. That being said, her track record is better than most, and with the event coming so soon, it seems more likely that we’ll be playing Breath of the Wild within the next few months.

Contrary to my past report on BOTW release date it is 100% coming at Switch launch in North America in March. Have seen finalised materials.

That isn’t even the biggest bomb-shell. Dale also reports that Mother 3 will officially be released on the Nintendo Switch Virtual Console in “Q2 2017”. With Nintendo localizing Mother 1 in EarthBound: Beginnings, it’s clear that Mother 3 was on the horizon, and it may be within our grasps in a timely manner.

Mother 3 VC Switch Q2 2017. Will be announced Jan 12 event.

There are only a few weeks left before this rumor mill gets proven true or false.

"Madden and FIFA have become our go-to with tournaments running nightly and a white board dedicated to win-loss records. Rivalries are forming and guys are finding time to practice in between work and working out to sharpen their mad skills...morale is through the roof! Thank you again, the Supply Crate you sent has truly improved our living conditions and gives us a much needed form of relaxation. You may not realize it, but this will keep our sanity intact."

Your Supply Crate not only made my Christmas, but made my year; this has really turned things around for me. Stack-Up is truly a thoughtful organization, designed to bring happiness to us vets who have an extremely hard time finding happiness anywhere in their lives.

"I heard from a brother that you guys helped him out; to see that kindness still around is amazing. As a vet its hard sometimes, and having groups like yours out helping for nothing in return its great. Please keep up the great work and don't ever stop."

...while we have all had various types of awesome care packages delivered to us over the years with toiletries, tobacco, and tasty treats, none of us have ever experienced anything quite like a Stack-Up Supply Crate.

Working on the flightline, 12 hour days are normal and there are so many stresses that come with my job. Being able to come home and forget all of it for even an hour does wonders for me personally. I have built so many friendships in Stack-Up and I can't wait to make more. It's a family.
