Nintendo manager hints at GameCube virtual console on Switch
Early rumors seem even more likely now.
Late last year, rumors started to circulate that GameCube games might be making their way to the Nintendo Switch through Nintendo’s digital shop. Nintendo offered no details on the console’s eShop offerings at its Switch press event in January, but a recent interview with the company’s deputy general manager Yoshiaki Koizumi may have revealed some new updates.
Speaking to the French publication Melty, Koizumi was questioned about GameCube games available on the Switch and said the following:
“We can not really answer with precision [about GameCube games coming to the Switch] because we have not announced anything about it at this time…what I can tell you is that we are working on things that go in that direction.”
While certainly not an official confirmation, these comments hint that Nintendo has yet to reveal all the details about the Switch prior to launch. It is possible that the announcement of virtual console games might be held of until after the system is available, or during E3.
The Nintendo Switch launches worldwide on March 3. For more, check out recent hands-on impressions from PAX South.
