New Nintendo Switch AAA game accidentally leaked by website

A new AAA game for Nintendo Switch seems to have accidentally leaked before its official reveal. While this game in question is not something entirely new or unheard of, its potential arrival on Switch would be the first time it has come to the platform and helps complete the larger trilogy it belongs to.

Spotted on Russian retail site VideoIgr.net, a recent listing was discovered for Darksiders III, which is the third main installment in the long action-adventure series. First released in 2018, this title has already arrived on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, but an arrival on Switch is something publisher THQ Nordic has yet to announce. Shortly after that Darksiders III the ad was discovered on the website, it was eventually taken down. Prior to that date, however, some fans on Reddit captured a screenshot of the list with its supposed launch date of September 30, 2021.

As mentioned, if Darksiders III were to come to Nintendo Switch, its launch wouldn’t be that shocking. In the past, THQ Nordic has gone out of its way to provide both Darksiders and Darksiders II to switch to the past. In addition, the derivative part Darksiders: Genesis is also currently playable on Switch. Essentially, Darksiders III is the only game in the franchise that isn’t on Switch at the moment. As such, it would make sense for THQ Nordic to seek to rectify its absence.

Assuming this listing for Darksiders III is indeed correct, it stands to reason that we might hear something official about its launch in the very near future. With September coming so quickly, if this game is to hit Switch, THQ Nordic will surely have something to say in the weeks to come. Until then, however, you should take this list with the usual two cents. After all, this whole scenario could have been accidental on the part of the retailer in question.

Yes Darksider III came to Nintendo Switch, would you like to grab it for yourself? Let me know your thoughts in the comments or hit me up on Twitter at @ Mooreman12.
