Rumor: Xenoblade Chronicles X, Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy, The Silver Case heading to Switch
Switch rumormonger Laura Kate Dale sent along some new speculation about titles coming to Switch on her Twitter account today. Some of the information isn’t as set compared to previous rumors we’ve heard about due to only being single-sourced, but may be worth sharing in any case.
Dale is primarily attempting to paint a picture about what lies ahead for Switch in 2017. The new 3D Mario, Mario Rabbids RPG, Splatoon port, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Just Dance 2017 are among the games planned for launch. The Smash Bros. port, Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8, and Super Mario Maker are said to be launching within the first six months. New additions for the first half year of Switch include Xenoblade Chronicles X, Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy, and The Silver Case (Grasshopper Manufacture’s visual novel that has been revitalized on new platforms).
As for what else is lined up for Switch, Dale hears that Pokemon Stars could see release in the fall along with Pikmin 4, and Project Sonic 2017 at some point. With Pikmin 4, which is labeled as a reboot, she says it “May only be in name but they want to be clear internally it’s not a sequel. They don’t want 4 in title.” Zelda: Breath of the Wild will also be getting a demo supposedly. However, Dale cautions that it “could be for press rather than public, not stating a public demo download.”
Here’s a look at what Dale believes will end up on Switch and when:
