We just want you to be aware of what is going on in the gaming industry, and with the amount of detail in this rumor, there is a good chance that it could be true. Then again, there is a bigger chance that it is complete BS. So, for now, please take this specific rumor as a grain of salt until something more concrete becomes available.
We did reach out to Nintendo for comment, but they gave the same response as before by stating that they do not address rumors and/or speculation.
