Speaking of rumors, recently a rumor emerged on the internet that suggested Nintendo Switch will be able to play all the GameCube games through its Virtual Console service.

According to the report, Gamecube support has already been tested and its working as intended and three games have already been prepped for Nintendo Switch. These games are Super Mario Sunshine, Luigi’s Mansion and Super Smash Bros. Melee.

There is another report that is making rounds on the internet that suggests that the dock for Nintendo Switch will increase the performance of the console.

According to the report, the reason behind the increase in Nintendo Switch performance will be due to another fan that will be activated when the dock is attached that will help cool the system allowing it to achieve a higher clock speed.

Nintendo Switch is scheduled to launch in March 2017 but no specific release date or price has been announced by Nintendo which will be revealed during Nintendo Switch Presentation that will be held in January.
