The Nintendo Switch sure is good at stirring up rumors. This one, however, isn’t all that new. Some might remember that last February rumors hit that Mother 3, the only entry in the mother franchise to not get an English release in some form or another would be hitting the Wii U Virtual console. Well, 2016 is over now, and Nintendo hasn’t said a damn thing. New rumors have surfaced that the title will actually debut in the US on the Switch and we’ll hear all about it at the big event on the 12th.
This leak comes from Laura Kate Dale who Tweeted earlier today that Mother 3 will be due out sometime in Q2 of 2017 and that we’ll get the announcement on the 12th. While you should take this with a grain of salt, it does make sense, though. Maybe Nintendo planned to release it for the Wii U but after its less than stellar performance opted to hold out for the Switch.
