Get able to put your detective hats on, of us, as a result of there is a thriller afoot. The Nintendo Swap reveal trailer — you realize, the one the place teams of stylish folks play the up-and-coming console at such memorable and reasonable venues as a rooftop social gathering or at a basketball court docket — has been faraway from the official Nintendo YouTube channel.

This was first delivered to our consideration by Reddit person CarbVan on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours and positive sufficient, wanting on the YouTube channel in query, the reveal trailer is nowhere to be discovered. After all, the video stays accessible on-line by outer shops (the one posted by GameSpot, for instance), so you’ll be able to nonetheless discover inspiration for which wacky and great location you’ll play your Swap in subsequent, however the query nonetheless stands: why has it been faraway from its preliminary supply?

The straightforward (and, sadly, more than likely) reply is that it has been eliminated as a result of a music licensing problem. The trailer’s backing observe, ‘Ha Ha Ha Ha (Yeah)’ by White Denim, is a tune that, as Reddit person TheyCallMeRadec factors out, seems to be in some authorized bother after the observe’s preliminary distributors have been lately taken over by one other firm. Questions in regards to the tune’s true proprietor are normally cause sufficient for a video comparable to this to be taken down and there’s each likelihood that we have now seen precisely that on this occasion.

However what if there’s one more reason? CarbVan‘s authentic put up does level out that Nintendo has deliberately eliminated reveal trailers up to now to make method for one other, maybe related announcement proper across the nook. We is likely to be changing our detective hats with ones extra of the tinfoil selection, however might we be seeing one thing related occurring right here — in any case, rumours of the ‘Swap 2’ proceed to flow into at the next and better density every week. Is the removing of the OG Swap reveal trailer an indication of issues to return?

There may be each chance that Nintendo is clearing the runway right here, making room for one thing else down the road, although our logical brains can not help however lean in direction of the previous, considerably extra boring possibility — certainly nothing as massive because the Swap’s successor can be teased this near the vacation season, proper… proper?

What do you make of this mysterious removing? Is it nothing greater than a authorized problem or is there one thing else within the works right here? Go away your theories within the feedback under.
