The release of the Nintendo Switch is just around the corner and while excitement is close to hitting it’s peak there is still news coming out about the console. According to a recent interview with French publication Melty, Nintendo’s deputy general manager Yoshiaki Koizumi dropped hints that Gamecube games will be coming to the Switch’s virtual console. Koizumi said “We can not really answer with precision 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.”
Koizumi didn’t clarify what “things” they are working on, but there’s still a chance that Nintendo is working on bringing Gamecube games to the virtual console. Games such as Super Smash Bro’s Melee are still played today. By bringing Gamecube games to the virtual console Nintendo could be creating a big cash grab .
Gamers hoping for the games to appear on the virtual console will have to hold their breath though. Nintendo has had the ability to bring them to former consoles such as the Wii U and have decided against it. Maybe that changes with the Switch, maybe it doesn’t we’ll just have to wait and see after March 3rd when the Switch is released.
