RUMOR - Another round of Super Nintendo World concept art

New Super Nintendo World concept art

The wait for this one is going to be so agonizing. This Mario Kart ride that supposedly uses VR is going to be absolutely amazing. I need to check it out NOW!

UPDATE - There's also a new round of info to go along with this concept art. Remember, we learned that while most of the concept art out there is real, a lot is outdated. We know Mario Kart is the real deal, but other things like the Pokemon content has been scrapped. Still, if you want to check out the info, you can do so <a href="http://www.parkscope.net/2017/06/super-nintendo-world-concept-art.html?m=1" target="_blank">here.

RUMOR - Another round of details on Super Nintendo World at Universal Studios Orlando

The following comes from WFTV Channel 9 news, who says their info comes from sources familiar with the project.

- a significant part of the kid zone will be closed
- E.T. will stay, but Woody Woodpecker and Barney will be torn down
- the Mario Kart ride will be a moving track where guests wear augmented reality glasses

“It will not be a basic car ride. Whether it's augmented reality or some kind of scoring thing in the real world. There will be a score element, race element to it and that is what's going to make the ride re-rideable.”

- Donkey Kong roller coaster on the way
- a number of interactive areas with plans for floating coins in mid-air that will spin on a kind of magnetic system

RUMOR - New ARMS content coming later today, tomorrow

I know Andre super well and trust his info 100%. I'm just marking rumor because we don't have official confirmation from Nintendo!

RUMOR - Multiple sources say Xenoblade Chronicles 2 still on for 2017

We have had quite a number of sources reach out to us about Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Following up on our GameStop information, these sources say they can confirm that the game is still slated for a 2017 release. Since we shared the GameStop inside info and said it was subject to change, I thought it the right thing to do to update you guys on this new round of info. To be clear, the info on Xenoblade Chronicles 2 still being on for 2017 comes from multiple people, none of them the same as my GameStop source.

RUMOR - Pokemon UK press site listed Pokemon Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon for Switch, then yanked it (UPDATE)

I've checked the press site right now, and the mention of Switch is nowhere to be found. Either this was a very quick hoax, an honest accident by Pokemon Co., or a leak. Which one do you think it is? Thanks to WolfStrassen for the heads up!

UPDATE - Pokemon Co. says the listing was a "clerical error".

"We would like to address rumours based on a clerical error on the Pokémon press site. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are coming exclusively to Nintendo 3DS family of systems and are not due for release on Nintendo Switch. This listing on the Pokémon press site was made in error and is not indicative of future plans. Please refer to the Pokémon Direct for the full details of the game." - Pokemon Co.

RUMOR - Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle potential amiibo leaked

The last bit of inside information on Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle told us that there could potentially be a line of amiibo in the works, or at the very least, some sort of figurines. Now an image of those figures has surfaced. The image has confidential watermarking on it, so we won't be sharing here. If you want to see the image, you can click the source link. Thanks to Rigoberto and FangztheWolffor the heads up!

RUMOR - Images for Super Smash Bros. Switch surface (UPDATE)

UPDATE - We have it on very good authority that the screens are indeed fake. We cannot reveal sources, but the info does come from someone we consider to be extremely trustworthy.

More here

A long time back, we had heard rumors of Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS getting a port to Switch with some new content. Today, a round of supposedly leaked screens has surfaced from that project. As we inch closer to E3 2017, could these images be the real deal, or are they nothing more than the work of someone trying to stir up the Nintendo community? Thanks to FangztheWolf for the heads up!

RUMOR - Retailer listing points to Pokken Tournament port for Switch

Looks like Pokken Tournament has a shot at releasing on Switch. Japanese retailer Sinobi had posted a listing for an arcade stick for Switch, with the listing stating that the stick could be used for games like Pokken Tournament. The listing has now disappeared completely. Was it a listing in error, or was it a leak?
