Rumor: new Switch exclusive game will be revealed in December with a gameplay trailer

Laura Kate Dale has once again delivered another report on the Switch – or rather, she’s delivered a juicy bit of info and some screenshots this time. According to her, a new Switch exclusive game (shown in these screenshots) will be revealed in December via a gameplay trailer. She doesn’t offer any details beyond that, like who the publisher or the developer of the game is. It seems unlikely that it’s Nintendo however, since they would probably save a big announcement like that for the big Switch event in January.
As always, take rumors like this with a grain of salt, even if they come from a reliable source like Laura. Either way, if this is indeed real, we should hear about it pretty soon since we’re already well into December.

We’ve finally seen Nintendo dip its toes into the mobile market this year. As for why it didn’t happen sooner, Shigeru Miyamoto told The Wall Street Journal that smartphones weren’t powerful enough. However, Miyamoto says that there are now “more opportunities for consumers to come into contact with a mobile phone than our own gaming devices.”
As for Nintendo’s next mobile effort Super Mario Run, development took about a year. Miyamoto noted that it was designed the way it is since most people hold their phones with one hand. To compensate for the narrow width of phone screens, the team focused on making Mario climb and drop to collect items.
