While we can't quite say it's absolutely true, a very interesting collection of Nintendo Switch-related images were recently leaked on NeoGaf.


Amongst the various accessories shown was one that grabbed our interest in particular: a HORI arcade stick.

If this is indeed in development, there are a ton of questions about the potential endeavors Nintendo is looking to get into when it comes to the fighting game genre. Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite and Tekken 7 are on the horizon. Perhaps we'll see a new Smash Bros. or an entirely new franchise in Nintendo's near future?

With Nintendo's Direct coming up this Thursday, it'd be a perfect time for the company to reveal plans for upcoming peripherals such as the ones leaked on NeoGaf. We suspect we may receive some exciting news in the coming days.
