Rumor: Beyond Good & Evil 2 Switch exclusive for first 12 months, Rayman Legends Q2, Mario/Rabbids RPG name

Posted on January 3, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in Rumors, Switch

Laura Kate Dale has published a new set of Switch rumors pertaining specifically to Ubisoft.

First, Dale has an update on Beyond Good & Evil 2. Her sources have informed her that the game’s code name is “Odyssey”. It’ll be exclusive to Switch for the game’s first 12 months in both retail and digital versions. After that period ends, it’ll head to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, but digital-only. Dale says Beyond Good & Evil 2’s teaser will probably be shown at the end of Switch’s big event next week.

Dale also shares some news about Rayman Legends, which originally arrived in 2013. She reports that this version of the title will be announced during the January 12 event and will ship in Q2.

Finally, the Mario and Rabbids crossover RPG is apparently going by the name “Rabbids Kingdom Battle”. She’s heard from one source that it may be pushed back to September.

    Hey Laura why not leaked all the flocking presentation right now so we can act surprise that day instead of be genuinely surprise, the same to Rogers and Eurogamers, you mediatic %$res…

    • And everyday she keeps saying she won’t publish more leaks until january 12th…

    • KnickKnackMyWack

      To be fair, this is very commonplace with lead-ups to big reveal events. You’re honestly better off just staying away from the rumor posts and/or the internet in general.

      • Exposer

        There are everywhere, also i need to be on Internet for my grades and news from my country.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          Well of course but you don’t need to be on video game sites for that lol. Block them from your browser until the 12th and you’re golden. :p

          • Stuart

            At least for me I cant escape, those news are the very first thing that shows up when I open my Twitter or Facebook πŸ˜›

            God bless every site who puts a -spoiler- tag lol

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Hmm. Perhaps unfollow the respective pages on Facebook and just lay off Twitter a while? I personally don’t mind the spoilers since I’ll be excited if they I see that they are true.

    • R.Z.

      Honestly I wouldn’t mind that, I don’t feel like waking up at five in the morning on the thirteenth.

  • Tony Horo

    >Laura Kate Dale
    >her

    Besides that, I’m hoping that all those rumors turn out to be true. Switch is get more interesting recently with all those news.

    • KnickKnackMyWack

      >Laura Kate Dale
      >her

      Meaning…?

      • Bcardia

        Don’t bother…

      • Stuart

        Apparently Laura Kate is transgender, I guess that is what Tony Horo means.

        • MagcargoMan

          “Apparently”
          I thought it was pretty obvious.

      • Tony Horo

        Meaning that this person isn’t a she, but I’m just mocking with NE. I really appreciate her leaks cause most of them end up being true.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          Wouldn’t your mockery work if they actually said or did something incorrectly or if there was some actual mistake involved?

          • Tony Horo

            The actual mistake is calling a man “she”, but I’m not trying to be so serious about it cause this isnt even the place.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            The sad thing is, I think you’re more confused than you seem to think Laura Kate Dale is. Thanks for wasting my time.

          • Liam Freeman
          • Tony Horo

            @liam_freeman:disqus I should be ashamed of what? For not treating a transgender as a woman?

            @errantrazor:disqus I’m not being offensive, as you can see by my posts, I just happen to have a different opinion than yours. Also, I can’t be more disgusting than people who think that a subject is taboo just cause other people don’t share the same opinion.

          • TalesOfBS

            SJW agenda.
            – Shutdown other opinions.
            – Pretend SJW is a thing made by White Homophobic Racist males.

          • errantrazor

            You’re disgusting

        • MagcargoMan

          Except Laura backtracked on the Zelda leak a day ago.

  • Tlink7

    Breath of the Wild was ”definitely delayed”, right? Who cares what this clown says

    • Gentle Robot

      It was definitely delayed like 3 times. It was supposed to come out Xmas 2015

      • Tlink7

        I know, but the delays were announced by Nintendo, not some internet people with attention issues

  • Bcardia

    Not a fan of all these old ports coming to Switch. I mean I’m okay with Splatoon and MK8 since it seems like they get lots of additional content, but what’s the point of Rayman Legends?

    • Puffdaddy

      Possibly to hype up the Rabbids game?

      • Bcardia

        Eh, the thing is Rayman Legends is already available on more than 4 platforms and you can get it for like 5€. I fear the Switch port will bomb hard and discourage Ubisoft from releasing more games on the Switch.

        • KnickKnackMyWack

          One more port is better than no games at all. Plus Legends did well on Wii U from what I heard.

          • jimmy

            Thats pretty much the xbone and ps4 opening lineup, mostly ports

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Right, but only Nintendo gets the flack. Surprise, surprise.

          • Bcardia

            Sorry, but I disagree. After the drought periods on the Wii U, I hoped for a better solution than “porting 4 years old games to prevent software droughts”. Again, this game is already available on 7 platforms (Wii U included) and it’s currently cheap as f*ck. I just see no point in porting it again to the Switch just to let it bomb and discourage Ubisoft further from supporting the Switch.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Well, minus the part that nobody bought a Wii U and Ubisoft ports their games to everything, but okay.

          • Gentle Robot

            I bought a Wii U and Rayman is the best game on the platform.

          • ForeVision

            Not in the same state as others, no. But, they could add more content to make it an attractive buy.

  • Puffdaddy

    She complains that leaking information is sooo stressful and how it’s not good for her mind and yet every week she keep on leaking more information. I don’t know about you guys, but I would like to be a little bit surprised come January 12th

    • Bcardia

      I agree. This person is a hypocritical mess.

      “Ohh, this leaking business is soo stressfull for me, I can’t deal with it anymore, let me calm my mind by leaking even more stuff huurrrrr!”

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        I’m sure there’s some disorder or mental disease that this can be classified under, sadly, I am not classified to identify it.

      • hi v3.0

        Bruh XD

      • R.Z.

        Maybe she has a leaking addiction ?
        πŸ˜›

    • Fandangle

      Because she’s an attention seeker. She’s a part of the indie journalist cult, the people that value getting a headline over actual journalistic integrity. Plus Journos hate nintendo, they’d take any chance to usurp nintendo and ruin their news just because.

    • MagcargoMan

      LKD is an attention-seeker and SJW. Anything that grants them page views and clicks will do.

  • Ser2k2
  • Stuart

    I dont see much of a selling point for Rayman Legends on Switch. The game is already 4 years old and you can find it really cheap on any platform,even the Wii U. Why not a new Rayman?

  • PachterStation

    Rayman Legends is a totally pointless exercise, even it extras are added. Old games on the Switch isn’t what it needs. You could also say the same for Xbox One and PS4 ports. The likes of Ubisoft, EA and Activision will probably jump ship after a year or so (to name a few). Anyone expecting plenty of games that are released for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC arriving on the Switch, it won’t happen often. 3 months to go until launch, lack of information, it just feels like the Wii U all over again. Nintendo fans, retailers, publishers and developers should take Nintendo with a pinch of salt.

  • spideynut71

    Ancel is only interested in the quick, easy money that comes with “exclusive” deals, just like the one he has with Sony for WiLD. My bet is both games are huge failures, and he ends his career just like Peter Molyneux…a totally washed-up has-been.

    • KnickKnackMyWack

      If it gets his games funded and made, we have no business complaining.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond
    • ForeVision

      She messed up something major with BotW, and I will bellow with laughter if it turns out she’s wrong with the “delays” on Wii-U/European side as well.

      I wonder how her conversations with that source of hers are like now “Muh reputation! what have you done?!” “shrug”.

      • KnickKnackMyWack

        I mean, it’s not like it was announced and totally contradicted everything she said. She came clean herself and stated that the information had changed. My belief is her source told her one thing and then more recently told her another. Game development and release dates change rather rapidly, so it’s very easy for reports on these topics to change very quickly.

        • ForeVision

          Granted, and I’d give her more sympathy, if it wasn’t for that fact that she’s been saying for probably months now that she’d stop leaking. As you and I both know, there’s no indication of that happening any time soon.

          That said, my point here is that Emily Rogers, as far as I know, gets slammed for rumoring things that are wrong, why should Laura stay safe from the same, while doing the same?

          There’s no need to defend rumormongers/leakers, they know what they’re doing and if what they’re saying is wrong, the consequences are equally theirs.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Eh. Leaking stuff keeps herself relevant I guess.

            No you’re totally on the ball. I personally think leakers who get things wrong get too much flack. Announcements change on a dime before they become official, so I don’t think it’s fair, especially since Rogers and LKD do predict some things accurately, to lambaste them when information changes after the fact. I really don’t think either one of them is in the business of spreading false information on purpose.

          • ForeVision

            What they could do instead, is wait to know for 100% before spreading a rumor. That way they both avoid setting themselves on fire, and damaging their reputation. That said, I am not oblivious to the fact that there are probably many people clamoring to them for any tidbit of information, no matter how true it actually is.

          • KnickKnackMyWack

            Well a rumor is a rumor is a rumor and depending on the source, I believe there is always some truth to each one. It’s their job and/or livelihood and it gives guys like us something to speculate on and talk about.

  • NintendoPSXTheSecond

    More so, the event is stationed in Japan, how is s/he getting this info from a tight closed lip area such as that?

  • Addae Francisco

    This is not fair,cool,but,not fair.

  • Blanco8x8

    Hahaha! Oh Ubisoft, for a second or two, I thought you were going to redeem yourselves with a high-quality Nintendo exclusive, but you just couldn’t resist the extra dough on the other consoles.

    Bye! Better luck next time!

  • Rayman Legends Switch port is a shocker to me because it’s actually a thing. I thought Ubisoft wouldn’t even bother putting RL on the Switch because it sold so poorly on the Wii U but apparently that’s not the case. Not really surprised about Beyond Good And Evil 2 being a timed Switch exclusive since it has already been heavily rumored to be exclusive for the Switch anyway. Hopefully Nintendo has a deal in place to have the next Prince Of Persia to be exclusively on the Switch or as a timed exclusive. Nonetheless all of this is good news. The more the merrier as they say

    • ronin4life

      I remember hearing rayman sold quite well on wiiu and poor in general.

  • Douglas Siano

    If I set up an account for this site, can I automatically filter out all articles that are rumors?

    • Gentle Robot

      any nintendo news is going to be copypasted press releases and rumors until like march

  • ImReallyNotAmused

    she and this site are POS because you guys are leaking the whole stuff.

  • JJ

    Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t care about any of these games mentioned.

    • Yeah it’s just you

    • hi v3.0

      I’m just kinda interested about the Mario and Rabbids crossover but that’s about it

  • Jacob Groves

    DAY ONE BUY!!! Love first game on PS2 so yeah I getting it on Switch for sure. Cannot wait. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  • bugman83

    Can she cool it on the leaked info? I actually want to be surprised when the switch is fully revealed.

  • awng781

    None of these leaks are that surprising.

    BG&E2 supposedly being confirmed to be shown off during the Switch event gives me a bit of confidence that both western and Japanese 3d party software will be shown at the Switch event, not just the latter.

  • Gentle Robot

    i played the demo on ps3 and it’s super dull

    button mashing followed by taking pictures of birds

  • MagcargoMan

    Oh look, another rumour article, could this one be from a trustyworthy source and not a lying attention-seeker who’s already backtracking on some of their leaks?

    “Laura Kate Dale has published a new set of Switch rumors pertaining specifically to Ubisoft.”

    Guess not…

  • TalesOfBS

    Lets say her leaks are true, what is gonna happen? Game will tank on Switch, everyone will wait for the PS4 and Xbone versions now.
    Timed exclusivity doesn’t work anymore, they should be instead focusing on exclusive content.

    If Nintendo has any brains left they will bundle the Switch at launch with Zelda+Splatoon, Zelda+Mario Kart or a cheaper Splatoon+Mario kart. Splatoon and MK already sold tons on the Wii U, there is no point in trying to profit from them anymore, use it to move the Hardware so new games at least have a chance of doing good.

  • disqus_1S1GyNUnq5

    this is very underwhelming news and cements my dislike for the new switch. i really don’t need a port of a then-one-year-old switch release on my highend console. this will be like a ps3 port for the ps4 – pointless. the kids whose parents are going to buy them the switch will for sure have to play it. but as nintendo is not getting tired of pointing out that they are in no way a competitor to the big players – then please keep it in your corner. we don’t need subpar stuff on the big consoles.
