A new leak a week before E3 2018 shows possible proof that Fortnite, Killer Queen Black, Dragonball Fighters Z and more may be heading to the Nintendo Switch.

The leak comes in the form of an image, first circulated on 4chan, that showcased marketing materials for several games for the Switch. The titles include known games coming on the console, such as Mario Tennis Aces and Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate, but also feature several unannounced games for the system including Fortnite, Killer Queen Black, and Dragonball Fighters Z.

 

Of the names, Fortnite is the biggest title there in terms of popularity at the moment, and according to an anonymous source from Kotaku, the game will be heading to the Nintendo Switch. Another source, the Korean ratings board website, has also listed Fortnite for a rating, giving further proof to the rumor.

Dragonball Fighters Z was apparently rumored to be launched on the Nintendo Switch for some time, while Killer Queen Black, is apparently an unannounced revamp of the 2013 indie arcade strategy game. In Killer Queen, players form two teams of five bees, led by powerful Queen bees, whose objective is to either assassinate the enemy queen, fill their beehive with nectar, or rescue and secure the help of a giant snail god.

Killer Queen is the world's only ten player arcade cabinet. Its inclusion on the list as Killer Queen Black means that the game will be ported to consoles for the first time.

 

The rest of the titles were either recently confirmed or expected to be on the Nintendo Switch, with the exception of Overcooked 2, the currently unannounced sequel to the cooking simulation game first released back in 2016.

What are your thoughts on this rumor? Excited to see Fortnite, Killer Queen Black, and Dragonball Fighters Z make the cut for the Switch? Looking forward to Overcooked 2? Leave your comments below and be sure to stay tuned for all of our E3 coverage.
