An upcoming Mario sports title, Mario Sports Superstars, is allegedly heading to the Nintendo NX as well.

Mario Sports Superstars was announced last week for the Nintendo 3DS, but if a French gaming professional and journalist is to be believed, a Nintendo NX version is to be released as well. The 3DS version of the game, which is scheduled for a release in Spring 2017, was announced during Nintendo’s most recent Nintendo Direct broadcast. The sports title will include soccer, baseball, tennis, golf, and horse racing, and will feature a single player tournament as well as a local and online multiplayer mode.

On Twitter, Nico Augusto (@NicoWav) claimed that more Sports are coming, and an NX version for sure.

Augusto previously predicted that two new Pokémon games were on the way, which turned out to be Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. He was also correct on a third-party Bayonetta-styled exclusive game, which turned out to be Devil’s Third. Last but not least, he talked about a remastered classic that would be heading towards the Wii U, which turned out to be the remastered version of Twilight Princess, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD.

As with all rumors, take the information above with a grain of salt, especially since Nintendo has yet to officially unveil the Nintendo NX. Nintendo’s new dedicated home platform is slated for a release in March 2017, but more about the console will be revealed later this year. Recent reports claim that the Nintendo NX will be a hybrid console which will make use of NVIDIA’s Tegra GPU. If Eurogamer is to be believed, this chip might be capable of full Wii U and Gamecube emulation.

While Nintendo has yet to detail its new console, an NX version of the upcoming Zelda: Breath of the Wild is on its way, and as it stands now, that title is going to be a system-seller.
