Rumor: Nintendo To Bring Back a ‘Dead and Buried’ Game

Which Cancelled Game Is Nintendo Planning to Bring Back?

Game Informer’s news editor mentioned on a podcast that was posted last Wednesday that Nintendo was planning to bring back a “dead and buried” game. Which cancelled game this could be wasn’t revealed but the news editor, Imran Khan, said that he was “almost sure” that it was coming back.


“Let me hint at something, I guess. This is a thing that I’m going to write up at some point as soon as I get some more sources on it,” Khan said. “But there’s a game that’s thought to be dead that Nintendo’s reviving, and it’s not one that people would expect. It was very much a title that was dead and buried – very officially cancelled.”

Khan also mentioned that Kingdom Hearts III won’t be coming to the Switch. “Last I heard, there was a talk between Nintendo and Square Enix about what they could do with Kingdom Hearts III,” he said. “It was deemed unfeasible to get Kingdom Hearts III on the Switch.”

Which cancelled game do you think could be making a comeback? Could it be a cancelled first-party game or will it be third-party instead? Go ahead and speculate in the comments section below the article.
