Rumor: Nintendo Switch European Titles Leaked on 4Chan

With just under six hours to go until the reveal event, we've got one last Nintendo Switch leak on which to report. This time the leak comes from 4chan, where a person claiming to be working setting up a European Nintendo Switch event has posted a list of Switch games they say are coming to the new console/handheld hybrid. Whether or not these are the Nintendo Switch launch games for Europe or just a host of titles being shown isn't known.

The rumored list of Nintendo Switch games the 4chan user posted is:

  • Has Been Heroes: An Indie Viking-style action game that is being developed by Frozenbyte for the Switch.
  • Fast RMX: This is the title Fast Racing NEO remade for Nintendo Switch with new content.
  • Snipperclips: This is a small title that uses the two Joycons for two players.
  • Splatoon 2: Apparently, the footage seen of Splatoon in the first-look trailer is a sequel, not a port.
  • Super Bomberman R: Hudson Soft's classic Bomberman franchise gets a Switch release.
  • Arms: This is a fantasy-style fighting game. All characters have their own themes and long arms with different powers and effects. The art style is very reminiscent of The Wonderful 101, and it may be developed by Platinum Games. Characters are said to be colorful and include a green ninja with chains for arms, a purple mummy, and that gameplay was based around a boxing or wrestling ring.
  • Disgaea 5 Complete - A port of Disgaea 5 with all DLC included
  • Ultra (Super) Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers: Port with new content added. Leaker backpedaled later in the thread and stated the title actually started with "Super."
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe: A port of the Wii U title with new content added. Standee included new vehicles and tracks, but no new characters were seen.
  • Super Mario Odyssey: A new 3D Mario title. The logo is stated to have a plane in it which may indicate a new flying mechanic.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
  • Just Dance 2017
  • Skylanders Imaginators
  • 1 2 Switch: A mini-game compilation for the Nintendo Switch that showcases the console/handheld hybrid's tech.

The individual stated on 4chan that they couldn't take any photos, so photographic evidence doesn't exist for any of these leaks. These should obviously be taken with a grain of salt, particularly since we haven't even heard of several of these titles before this 4chan thread.

We'll know for sure which rumors are true and which leaks are false tonight. You can find out with the Shacknews crew as they livestream the Nintendo Switch Reveal Event on the Shacknews Facebook page beginning at 10 PM ET.
