E3 is just over a week away now, and the rumor mill is really starting to heat up. Numerous developers are struggling to keep their big reveals a secret, including Nintendo. Shortly after Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee! were leaked and then officially confirmed, another juicy Nintendo rumor surfaced, this time in the realm of third-party support.

We’ve heard rumblings for months now that Fortnite could possibly be coming to Nintendo Switch, and now an image has surfaced suggesting several other key titles. The image depicts known upcoming Switch games like Mario Tennis Aces, Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, and FIFA 19 alongside Fortnite, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Paladins, and two games that haven’t even been officially announced yet: Overcooked 2 and Killer Queen Black.

Kotaku claims that a source familiar with Epic Games’ plans has confirmed that Fortnite is indeed coming to Switch. Separately, they’ve been told by a source familiar with Bandai Namco’s plans that FighterZ for Switch is also legitimate. In speaking with other sources, Kotaku is convinced the rest of the leak is correct as well.

Following these reports, the Korean Ratings Board put up a listing for Fortnite on Switch, making it even more likely that at least part of the leak is true, if not all of it. Eurogamer responded to the listing by saying that their sources indicate Fortnite for Switch is real as well.
