Michael Gamble, Mass Effect producer, just recently cleared all allegations between Mass Effect Andromeda and Nintendo Switch. To recall, Mass Effect Andromeda is speculated to be released as a game title for Nintendo Switch.

In a report by Nintendo Life, Gamble gave a straight answer if Mass Effect will be coming to Nintendo Switch. "Yeah, not right now, no. We're not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone's just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows. We never want to close doors like that," Gamble stated. It is predicted that Mass Effect Andromeda might be coming to Nintendo Switch with a "Complete Edition" once it has proven to be viable both commercially and hardware-wise.

Meanwhile, Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild might be Nintendo Switch's Launch Title. The confirmation came from Nintendo Switch Insider, Laura Kate Dale who has been the go-to person when it comes to Nintendo Switch Leaks. Despite the constant disagreement, Dale reported that she is 100% sure that Breath of Wild will be Switch launch title. Other titles that are confirmed to come to Nintendo Switch are "Mario Kart," "Splatoon," "Skyrim: Special Edition," and "NBA 2K17."

Another allegation that circulates the internet is that Nintendo Switch may not support current generation ports. The information is revealed by Sebastian Aaltonen, former senior rendering lead of Ubisoft. Aaltonen confirms that Nintendo Switch processing speed is lower than current generation games requirement. Compared to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch processing speed is much lower in order to compete against other consoles.

Allegations such as these worries some Nintendo Switch faithful since it would greatly affect Switch's success. Having a much lower processing speed means developers changing codes drastically in order to successfully port games for Nintendo Switch. But, these allegations are not yet confirmed, therefore, fans should take it with a grain of salt.
