A report has purported quite a bit of information about what is in store for day one Switch owners.
LetsPlayVideoGames, which leaked the Switch’s price in the UK on Monday, has “learned from two seperate sources”, one of whom fed them Switch reveal information before the annoucement, that there are some big titles that will release alongside Nintendo’s new system.
As we learned yesterday, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will most likely be missing launch. To make up for it, the Mario game shown in the Switch reveal trailer will be a launch title. “The title will apparently feature a 3D open world hub from which different worlds can be selected, with multiple objectives to complete in each”, says LetsPlayVideogames.
It is expected to have a co-op mode similar to that of the Wii U’s 3D Mario title. According to LetsPlayVideoGames‘ sources, “a screen will show how much of the progress toward that success (completing stage objectives) was down to each player, like how many red coins each player collected in a red coin stage”.
A remastered version of Skyrim should also be available at launch, but will not have mod support on day one.
As we’ve heard for the longest time, the Switch will most likely have two different SKUs upon its release, and the premium model will come bundled with a new version of Splatoon, the higly innovative Wii U shooter. “A big part of the push for this will be a 1 vs 1 mode where two players on separate Switches can fight over a map, switching their weapon of choice at will mid-game.”
There are also plans to add more single player content to the game, but no further details were given.
Will the Switch really have this robust of a lineup come March? It remains to be seen. Remember, this is just a rumor.
