Rumors about the Eternal Darkness going to Nintendo Switch is very strong after Nintendo re-registered the game. Although this is not the first time Nintendo made this move for Eternal Darkness, many think it has something to do with the Switch launch in a few months.

Eternal Darkness is Nintendo's acclaimed horror game which was released in 2002 for its GameCube platform. The application for the re-registration was submitted on December 20, 2016, which was three weeks before Nintendo unveiled their new game console, Switch. Although it has been the third time Nintendo re-submitted it for registration, all the steps seem to point out to a Nintendo Switch release.

Observers say that just like its previous application, there was no mention as to what type of platform it will be heading to. However, there was a phrase which says, "downloadable electronic game software" suggesting that the game is headed for a virtual console re-release. Moreover, there were previous rumors that the Nintendo Switch was going to support a GameCube version of the Virtual console.

Meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch livestream is just days away and soon Nintendo will finally unveil which games will be included in the launch. We can also look forward to Nintendo welcoming Eternal Darkness to its roster during the livestream.

Other rumored games that will be coming to the Switch include a third version of Pokemon Sun and Moon, a new Mario 3D game, and a port for Elder Scrolls: Skyrim.

On the other hand, there was no mention about Eternal Darkness: Shadow of the Eternals, which was supposed to be the sequel to Sanity's Requiem. The project was put on hold because its Kickstarter campaign did not go well as planned. However, Eternal Darkness creator Denis Dyack assured fans that it is still alive and kicking although he gave no further clarifications regarding that.
