While we already know that Nintendo Switch classic games are going to be supplied each month through the company’s new online subscription service, fans are also hoping to grab titles in other means too.Those subscription games look set to only last around a month and will then be replaced by another every four-weeks.
While that system will probably work quite well for those titles that you may not want to be taking up vital space, fans also want to hear more about how the virtual console is going to shape up.
The latest reports suggest that more is set to be revealed very soon, a major news drop may even arrive later this week.
That’s because the new virtual console is supposed to be detailed two-weeks before the Nintendo Switch release date on March 3.
As these as just rumours, it’s worth taking them with a pinch of salt, however, the virtual console support is going to be a major source of fan interest.
Nintendo recently renewed a trademark for horror game Eternal Darkness, which suggests that the rumours of Gamecube Virtual Console support could be true.
The latest trademark was filed on December 20, just a month before the Nintendo Switch Tokyo event and a few months before the March release date.
The trademark refers to Eternal Darkness as downloadable software, which would further suggest that Gamecube releases are coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo is also said to be working on bringing Gamecube versions of Super Mario Sunshine, Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion and Super Smash Bros. Melee to the Switch Virtual Console.
Nintendo Switch classic games are currently hot commodities, with the Nintendo Mini NES currently selling like hot cakes, mostly due to chronic stock shortages.
