A pretty wild and crazy rumor has been making the rounds lately, and Eurogamer has just stepped in to corroborate. If the rumblings are true, Retro Studios is making a Star Fox racing game.

It looks like Nintendo Switch is in for a surge of new games in the near future. With E3 just around the corner, retailers have started preparing for game announcements by adding new titles to their system. Walmart may have accidentally leaked multiple new games ahead of the show, although they claim the games they outed were just speculation.

Monster Hunter Generations on 3DS was a huge hit for Capcom, selling over 4 million copies worldwide. Its popularity led Capcom to release a new and improved version called Monster Hunter XX (pronounced "double cross") in Japan, and that enhanced version was later improved even further by a Nintendo Switch port. Nearly a year after its Japanese release, Capcom has just confirmed that the Ultimate version on Switch will be coming to the West.

Nintendo is officially bringing the popular Super Smash Bros. series to Nintendo Switch. We know very little about the next iteration of the fighting series, except that Splatoon's Inklings will be playable. We don't even have official word on whether it will be an entirely new game or a port of the Wii U version, but some quickly-deleted tweets from a Nintendo employee may reveal the truth. They also indicate Bandai Namco as a developer on the game.

Nintendo recently opened up and shared some info about the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online membership program. One of the benefits of becoming a paid subscriber (other than playing online, which will cease to be free in September) is access to a library of digital NES games. As fans suspected, Nintendo has confirmed this means there are no plans for a traditional Virtual Console on Nintendo Switch.

While this marks a shift in strategy for Nintendo, you can bet that they still intend to bring their classic games to Switch in some form. Nintendo hasn't elaborated on how they plan to release games from classic platforms like SNES and Game Boy Advance, but a likely option is that they will handle them similarly to the NES library. If that's the direction Nintendo chooses to go, it's fantastic news for indie developers.
