Hot Wheels Unleashed 2

Milestone is allegedley working on a sequel to Hot Wheels Unleashed titled Hot Wheels Unleashed 2: Turbocharged.

Rumors about the game first started after a logo for the game was spotted on a toy car. billbil-kun – who you may remember from the initial Mortal Kombat 1 leak – has now followed up with more information.

Mortal Kombat 1 rumor

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios will supposedly release the next Mortal Kombat game on Switch titled Mortal Kombat 1. That’s according to dataminer billbil_kun, who has a track record of leaking

The game will apparently cost $60 on Switch while it’ll be $10 extra on other consoles. Warner Bros. intends to release a couple of special editions, but it seems they won’t be on Switch.

Xbox emulator ban Nintendo

Original (4/7): Yesterday, Microsoft made it so that emulators will no longer run on Xbox Series X | S consoles in retail mode. The reason for that apparently comes down to Nintendo.

With the latest Xbox console, emulating titles from past consoles has been made easier than ever. That includes emulation of past Nintendo platforms – something that the Big N wouldn’t be happy about. The ban prevents normal Xbox consoles (sold to consumers) from running such tools.

Mario movie Charles Martinet

A bit of new information has surfaced that seemingly reveals Charles Marinet’s role in The Super Mario Bros. Movie.

At this point, there aren’t too many surprises left when it comes to casting. We know about Chris Pratt as Mario, Anya Taylor-Joy as Peach, Charlie Day as Luigi, Jack Black as Bowser, Keegan-Michael Key as Toad, and Seth Rogen as Donkey Kong. But we’ve yet to hear about Marinet, who has voiced Mario in the actual games for decades at this point. It’s only been teased that he’ll have “cameos” in the film.

The Switch rumor mill is on fire again, as a leaker has come forward claiming that a new model will be released alongside the second DLC for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet – otherwise known as The Indigo Disk.

That information stems from a 4chan user – which we would normally dismiss – but this person seems to have at least some insider knowledge. A post was made to the site last Friday, a few days before the new Pokemon Presents aired with the DLC reveal. This user, who says he’s a programmer working for an outsourcing company, ended up getting just about everything correct between rough names of the DLC, new Pokemon, and more.


LEGO Zelda

Rumor has it that The Legend of Zelda could be the next major collaboration between Nintendo and LEGO.

A few days ago, JeanGreyForever posted information on the Eurobricks Forums about a potential new set. Promobricks has since received clarification that the details came from images spotted in a paid marketing survey.

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land Deluxe is only a few weeks away, which means it’s about time for information surrounding the game to begin leaking online. This may have already begun, with someone on Reddit posting what might be the back of the game’s box.

Reddit user Sad_Bat1933 posted an image of the presumed box online, and for the most part it looks pretty standard. However, it does show what seems to be an as-of-yet-unrevealed new mode for the game, titled “Magolor Epilogue”. You can view an image of the box below.

Zelda Tears of the Kingdom Switch OLED

Rumor has it that a new Switch OLED design is on the way for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom.

Reddit user AyoadeNBN shared the photos without much context. However, this person claims that the model was leaked by a worker at a Chinese factory or someone else within the manufacturing line. Apparently the Splatoon 3 Switch OLED had leaked in a similar manner.

Switch hardware refresh Digital Foundry

Rumors of a more powerful Switch – often dubbed by fans as the Switch Pro – have persisted for years. The thought was that Nintendo would come out with a new piece of hardware that isn’t quite a successor, but would be a step up  from what we have now. Presumably this theoretical device would allow for things such as technical improvements when it comes to aspects like frame rate and resolution and perhaps even better visuals.

Digital Foundry’s John Linneman has now weighed in on the situation in the outlet’s latest podcast. After speaking with some developers, he believes Nintendo was at once point toying around with a Switch hardware refresh. However, “that seems to no longer be happening” and the company is apparently pursuing a true successor instead.


Bayonetta 3 open world

A new report from journalist Imran Khan claims that Bayonetta 3 started off as a semi-open world game.

Khan said the title “was going to draw more off Astral Chain than NieR: Automata, but the idea was that a large hub world would send Bayonetta (or whoever else) to different worlds which would themselves be fairly open.” He brought up Super Mario 64 as a comparison point for the hub and went on to mention that despite work that had been done, “it kept falling apart when it came to pacing, and eventually Nintendo wanted them to scale back.” Another issue was how this concept was performing on Switch hardware.
