Thanks to scamander.

as far as I am concerned, rumors were killed the moment the trailer was revealed

(IMO), visually it appeared to be a whole generation above switch.

Rayman Legends was suppose to be exclusive for Wii U, things change, I don't think the rumor was wrong at the time, but when ubisoft saw what the team was doing, they realized how big it would become and decided to go down this route. What that means for the Switch and the original deal that might have been in place, well who knows.

Curious where the Nintendo publishing/deal part came from if that's the case.

Well that's not difficult when it's pre-rendered. No way the other consoles could do the same as the trailer.

Some people were still claiming it's a Switch exclusive, even after the reveal. So this information here gives some clarification.

LOL. You know that that was not in-engine, in-game or anything close to what the game will loke like,right? It was just a cg movie to pitch the whole world idea and characters, made by an outsourced company.

Nothing in that trailer was in-game, it was all pre-rendered cinematic.

The rumor should have been dead the moment it was announced without any clear connection to Nintendo. If Nintendo was funding the game they would have made it obvious in the trailer and it also would've been present in Nintendo's presentation.

But what about that Switch exclusive rumor?
Each time there's a new console launching you'll always get your dose of "this and this and that is coming exclusively for that console" rumors. Remember Microsoft allegedly buying all those Xbox One exclusives with their "warchest"?

maybe sony paid to make it non exklusiv to switch /s
That reference came fresh out the oven.

I saw it coming from the moment the words 'online playground' were spoken.

I still can't register on that damn bgegame.com site, though. Been trying since the conference.

yeah but the CGI trailer looked distinctively "this kind of aesthetic is meant for AAA, current gen/tech, meaning: don't expect it on switch/handhelds",

that's what I personally gathered from it anyway.

It could well end up getting delayed until PS5/Xbox 2, because I really don't see this coming out in the next two years and I think the new-gen consoles will probably be November 2019.

She has bad sources and is not reliable , end of story.
Does anyone have a list of her Nintendo leaks vs. what's actually happened? I don't follow her or anything, but I thought she was considered reliable at the end of last year.

Enough to tell that it's a generation above switch?
It's not really enough footage or clear enough to say one way or the other.

But people wanted it to be exclusive for Switch... lol
Prior to this people wanted whatever would get it made, and rumours at the time suggested Nintendo might have been funding it, which would have meant switch exclusive.

Skipping the reason why in your post is misleading. .

Laura Kate Dale has some explaining to do
she's been getting a lot of shit on twitter, to the point it's really quite bad =/

and besides, she's hardly unreliable, she completely called both Until Dawn Rush of Blood and the Mario/Rabbids game before their reveals.
