Laura K. Dale Challenges Newest Switch Rumours

With less than a week left until Nintendo’s big Switch event, the supposed leaks are coming in thick and fast. The latest leak is supposedly the logos for several upcoming Switch games. Posted on Imgur, it includes logos for Mario Kart, Splatoon and an unannounced Kirby game. However, Laura Dale has quickly chimed in to challenge the rumours. According to Dale, the pictures are almost certainly fake. Do you think Laura is right? Tell us below.

  1. ||Once the Switch is switched on, Laura Dale and the rest of her spying allies will be hunted down and defeated…||

      1. ||Blackbond is of no concern of mine but he did create this video that perfectly describes Xbot abominations and why they must be deleted…||

        1. I’m a hardcore gamer but even I’d stop to check out my wife’s breasts if I could see that amount of cleavage. @.@ *cough* Sorry… The part of my brain that is perverted distracted me for a minute there… *is still staring at them* ARGH!!!

        1. I meant, hes probably leaking all that information to her.

          It wouldnt surprise me if all these leaks actually came from higher ups at Nintendo. I know people hate rumors, but they sure as shit have been the driving force behind the switch hype. So this being part of Nintendo’s marketing plan woudnt surprise me.

          1. ||I know what you meant which is why I responded with what I did…||

  2. It seems odd to me that the Rabbids game wouldn’t have some sort of Mario connection in the title…

  3. “Also of note, I highly doubt all of those are launch day titles. Feels like it was built around rumours to get attention.”

    Laura K Dale is a spoiled, entitled bitch who apparently doesn’t realise how stupid that sounds coming from her…

  4. “Feels like it was built around rumours to get attention.” Really? No, are you serious? So,you can say anything you want left and right, and everyone should believe in you because you have your “sources” that no one knows what is, but if anyone beside you post something, their content are “dubious” and not accurate? What about your “forget about what i said last time, Zelda BOTW will be released in March” crap that you said last week AFTER a japanese magazine pretty much confirmed that Zelda will be release in March? Why should we trust you over anyone else? You’re a hypocrite. You don’t have the right to debate any rumour out there because this is what you do every fucking day, you and the rest of the internet that loves to spread rumours everywhere are the same thing. Don’t worry, these guys will not steal your spotlight. Also, go see a therapist or get married, you need attention from people out of the internet. I suggest that you marry the dude that post your articles here everyday, he seems to love you quite a lot. Maybe you’re soulmates. I also suggest to change the name of this website to

    1. ” everyone should believe in you because you have your “sources” that no one knows what is”

      First off all, that’s a shitty sentence. Second of all, she used to work for Polygon and Kotaku. You don’t lose your connections just because you stop working some place. I know someone who worked for video game site and he didn’t forget everyone’s contact info after he left and he was still on that companies mailing list for awhile.

      “but if anyone beside you post something, their content are “dubious” and not accurate?”

      She’s giving her opinion on a supposed leak and gave her reason. Learn how to take in information. The points she made a fair and similar information that “leaks” this way is was fake 90% of the time in the past.

      “What about your “forget about what i said last time, Zelda BOTW will be released in March” crap that you said last week AFTER a japanese magazine pretty much confirmed that Zelda will be release in March? Why should we trust you over anyone else?”

      Don’t we still not know if its releasing in Europe on launch day? And unless I’m mistaken, Laura lives in Europe so is it possible she heard from her likely European sources that it wasn’t coming out at launch and then later heard that it might still come out later in Europe but IS still coming out in March?

      Also we all assumed that BOTW would be a launch game for the Switch which we know is coming out in March so it’s not like that Japanese magazine was making any bold statements or assumptions that nobody else made before.

      “You’re a hypocrite.”

      Hypocrisy is a moral thing. You aren’t a hyprocrite if you got bad or confusing information or if you’re wrong. You’re not even necessarily a hypocrite if you lie. You’re a hypocrite if you do someone against your own morals.

      “You don’t have the right to debate any rumour out there because this is what you do every fucking day, you and the rest of the internet that loves to spread rumours everywhere are the same thing.”

      She’s a journalist. So you’re telling her that she shouldn’t do her job because YOU think she might be wrong or YOU think she doesn’t have sources and is just an attention whore.

      “Also, go see a therapist or get married, you need attention from people out of the internet. I suggest that you marry the dude that post your articles here everyday, he seems to love you quite a lot.”

      You think that just because someone has an internet presence that they’re attention whores? I don’t see you keeping your opinion to yourself. Get over yourself. I can just as easily make the assertion that you’re anonymous because you’d be afraid to voice your opinion otherwise.

      “I also suggest to change the name of this website to”

      If you don’t want any information unless it’s straight from Nintendo than I suggest you don’t visit sites that report on rumors and correctly label them as rumors.

    1. If you are talking about Laura the it’s a female but if you are talking about the Kirby “leaked” post person then it probably is a guy.

  5. Why is MNN turning into this cunt’s personal promotion machine?
    Stop it, her worthless opinions aren’t news.

  6. Yeah if you see any photo leaks, it’s most likley fake. I called bullshit on nintendo duo (which i was right). images on imagr that are “leaks” are almost always fake!

    1. *reads the second paragraph & then bits & pieces of the bullshit afterwards* Such hateful drivel. This article is trash & anyone taking it to heart should be ashamed of themselves.

  7. Honestly some of you just need to pull up your big girl panties and STOP DEMEANING ME. I have the resources, NOT YOU. Maybe you can start ACCUSING people of crime when you actually get a FUCKING BACKSTAGE PASS like a certain individual that’s been covered on myriads of credible Nintendo news sites. FUCK. OFF!! :)

    1. …Since when was misinformation in this context a crime? Yes, slander is a thing, but slander only comes into play when you’re harming something like a person or a company. You can’t say we’re accusing you of “crime” just because we disagree with you. Perhaps you need a rather large dose of reality?

      Maybe if you post something online about anything, you should look back on it before posting another one that contradicts something you’ve said already unless it’s for a VERY good reason. If you say you’re a Trump supporter, for example, don’t turn your back and say “JK, I’ve actually been a Clinton supporter all along!1!!” in another post (that isn’t to say you supported anybody in the campaign; I’m just making a point).

      I may not totally agree with you, but I can respect your opinions on a topic. However, with all this spreading of misinformation, we can’t all believe what you say is true. The only way we would know what the Nintendo Switch’s game lineup would be is to hear from the executives themselves.

      You don’t need to get all pissy about people not believing you. If it’s not about facts, you don’t need anybody to believe you. YOU can believe you. That’s all that matters.

      Don’t confuse opinions with facts, though.

    1. Honest question. Is English your first language?

      Laura isn’t “making rumors”. She was giving her opinion on the legitimacy of a rumor that someone else started.

      Those logos were uploaded to Imgur by someone named dragonite74. Laura is saying that she doesn’t know if they are real but she doesn’t think they are because almost all of those games were either shown off already by Nintendo or were talked about by her. On the other hand, nobody ever mentioned the Kirby game before and this leaker somehow couldn’t get a full picture of it’s name or even type its name out, so that makes her think it’s fake.

      The other reason she thinks it might be fake is that she believes it’s unlikely that all of these games are coming out on launch day.

      All she gave was her opinion. She wasn’t “making rumors”.

      Now I’ll add my opinion. It seems possible that the games that are essentially enhanced ports of Wii U games could come out on launch day, but the Rabbids/Mario crossover is an RPG which is kind of an uncommon genre to be released for a system on launch day.

    1. It’s not like they haven’t used known typefaces in logos before. I forget what font the older Mario games use but it’s known. That being said, I think they would have made the logo text by hand for a Kirby game.

      1. The older Mario Bros. games all used custom typefaces. You can find a lot of knockoff ones on websites like DaFont now. Even later titles like the New Super Mario Bros. titles sport a custom typeface for their logo (if you find a Mario typeface, it is made by someone who has copied the game’s logo and expanded it into a font family).

        Every Nintendo franchise has had custom lettering/typography for each logo. Show me one that hasn’t.

        1. Also, you may be confusing the well known typeface “Bauhaus” for the Mario Bros. title screen logo. Though this was something designers at Nintendo based the logo off, it is highly altered. I doubt anyone would use a cheesy “Lasso” font from some unknown source as the logo for a new mainstream Kirby title.

          Oh wait, someone who faked these game logos would.

          1. My mistake. You’re correct. I just typed “SUPER MARIO BROS” in Bauhaus in Photoshop and the A, S, P, and one of the Rs are very different. The Os are also different but when I swapped them with 0s, they look a lot more similar but Nintendo’s version uses a straight line for the gap.

            Good catch.

  8. I honestly wonder if she’d be getting nearly as much hate on here if she wasn’t transgendered. I don’t see this level of hate on Emily Rogers articles. Or maybe it’s just me.

    1. Anyway, I’d hate to see a Yahoo comment section that’s talking about one of Laura Kate Dale’s rumors. They’d make this place & their haters look like cheap knockoffs by comparison. xD
