Fox not technically News presenter, Tucker Carlson, made new emerging claims on his program last night stating that his uncle “works at Nintendo” and that he has seen evidence of an unreleased, and previously unknown, Nintendo Switch 2 game console.
Carlson is a known fan of Nintendo games, having pre-ordered both the Nintendo Switch and Wii U at launch. The television host has been openly critical of the recently released PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, both of which have garnered a large amount of media coverage over the past week.
“The elites don’t want you to know, but the Switch 2 already exists,” claimed Carlson in his television segment. “I have seen it with my own eyes and it will soon be revealed to be the most powerful home game console.”
Carlson went on to claim that he had gotten firsthand experience with a Nintendo Switch 2 as his uncle was a tester for new hardware and had brought a sample unit over one day. The system was supposedly able to rival the visual fidelity of the PS5 but in the form factor of a handheld tablet. The Switch 2 was never shown on his program however, with Carlson explaining that his uncle had to bring it back and would have probably gotten in trouble for showing it too early anyway.
“The mainstream media still refuses to cover this,” said the primetime television host on a network with millions of viewers. “This is going to be a lot bigger than any of us realized.”
Carlson also made claims of a new Mario game in the works titled Mario Universe, a version of Super Smash Bros. that includes Waluigi as a playable character, and an upcoming Pokemon game that will feature every single Pokemon from the entire franchise’s history. When asked if he had taken any screenshots, Carlson stated that he had but someone had deleted them off of his computer while he wasn’t looking so he was unable to bring them in to present during his show.
External news sources so far have been unable to find prior evidence of any of Carlson’s relatives working at or ever having been an employee at Nintendo of America. When asked if he could provide his uncle’s contact information in order to verify his source, Carlson responded saying that his uncle had just left for a business trip to Nintendo headquarters in Japan and wouldn’t be able to take any phone calls.
