Nvidia GeForce Now Leak Claims Cloud Gaming Platform Will Include Nintendo

There’s been a giant Nvidia GeForce Now database leak for the cloud gaming service. The database leak includes a list of unannounced games like Crysis 3 and Bioshock 2022, but it also lists a variety of unannounced potential PC ports. There’s no way to know how correct the leak is but some of the unannounced games are certainly realistic.

A list of Nintendo games was also included in the leaked database as potential Nvidia GeForce Now games. According to the compiled leaked data on Reddit, this could also include first-party Nintendo games which would bring them to PC for the first time in history.

What Nintendo Games Does The Leak Mention?

Bayonetta 3 and Shin Megami Tensei V are the most likely games on the list to be coming to the cloud streaming platform. Games from both these series have been available for PC in the past though Bayonetta 3 is confirmed for PC release already.

However, looking through the database also reveals that Mario + Rabbids, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order, and New Super Mario Bros. are listed.

Does This Mean Nintendo Games Are Coming To PC?

Ighor July did some investigative work into this and discovered that the Nintendo Wii exclusive Super Mario Bros. has an “Nvidia confidential” label on it via the Dolphin Emulator, which is strange. This could just be a coincidence, but there’s no clear reason for why there would be an “Nvidia” label on the Nintendo Wii exclusive.

Looking at the data dropped to github we can also see that New Super Mario Bros. is listed twice on the list for different app stores. One is down as “UNKNOWN” while the second has “GOG”. The GOG store has their GOG Galaxy application that allows users to keep all their PC games in the same place regardless of where they bought the game from making the listing for New Super Mario Bros. very unusual.

The Mario + Rabbid listing is for Kingdom Battle and is listed twice. Once for an “UNKNOWN” store and a second time for “UPLAY.”

There’s no way to be certain that Nintendo exclusives will be coming to PC based on the leak, but it does look very promising. Nvidia reached out to WCCFTech after the leak to state the game list includes “speculative titles” and is not confirmation of anything.
