    Due to the recent trademark of the classic "1080° Ten Eighty" series by Nintendo, many fans are being led to believe that Nintendo may be bringing GC games to the Switch market.

    For a little history on the subject, the first instalment of the 1080° Ten Eighty series was "1080° Snowboarding" for the Nintendo 64, hitting the market in 1998. 5 years after this, we got another epic game, 1080° Avalanche for the Gamecube.

    It is worth noting that this whole filing could just be proof that a new game is coming to the series, which would be equally as great, it could also be proof that N64 games are coming as well, there isn't much to say at this current point in time.

    Probably just to sell us 1080 N64 vc yet again...

    I wish it was something to do with GC, but this means next to nothing in that respect.

    Can we not?

    Seriously, adding 'potential' doesn't change how much of a click bait this title is.

    It's hard to tell considering all of their innovations and success lately.

    I said potential in caps so no one gave me backlash for calling it straight up proof when it is far from that.

    Nintendo trademarks 1080.
    Nintendo brings GCN VC on Switch.

    I fail to see a link between the two.

    It's still click bait and doesn't "potentially prove" anything. This is more than likely a precursor to a N64 VC. Hell, it's more possibly a new title than GC VC.

    Could easily be for the N64 title on a VC or potential N64 Classic. Or it could be nothing more than it was time to renew the trademark. To say that this is an indication of Gamecube VC titles on the Switch would be silly, not nearly enough to go on to make that connection here. Having said that, I'm pretty sure we will see GC games on the Switch VC regardless. Just be patient though, it's not gonna happen over night.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they remade it for the Switch.

    MS and Sony has seen a lot of remakes/HD versions of games in recent years.

    Basically it can go 3 ways, either they are bringing 1080 N64 VC to Switch, or they are bringing 1080 Avalanche VC to switch, or they are making a new 1080 franchise game (which I HIGHLY doubt).

    Well hey, at least now you know they filed a trademark on their series, I'm sorry if you find this clickbait, I am partly trying to get myself out there for people to see so I can share my news easily.

    For writing articles that lack 100% proof, you probably wanna go with [Rumor] instead at the start of the thread. Then, for sources, hyperlink the source into the word Source, and then put a little emote of this :arrow: in front of it.

    In terms of the content, I feel like this is the weakest proof of GC VC. It could be an HD remake, an N64 Classic game, just generic licensing renewal, port, virtual console for N64, or, finally, maybe, gamecube VC.

    Or as I said, it could just be time to renew the trademark, or it could be they're bringing 1080 to a potential N64 Classic later this year, or I'm sure I could think of a handful of other reasons not listed as well. There are plenty of possible explanations beyond your 3, and the Gamecube VC is but one of many. There is just no compelling reason at this point to think that the Gamecube VC explanation is the explanation, in fact I find that least likely considering 1080 on the Gamecube wasn't exactly a hit, while it was a bit better known on the N64.

    Or it could mean nothing at all.

    As said by others, making a click bait title isn't the best idea at all.
    Especially when you say "potential proof of GCN VC" when all it is is Nintendo trademarking 1080.
    There's zero proof of Nintendo confirming to bring GCN VC to the switch.

    I get it, you saw something and wanted to quickly post it.
    We appreciate it!
    But please, don't start rumours or spread false info.
    The community here will heavily lash out on you.

    Which is fine. However, as Chary said starting with something like "Rumor" or even "Speculation" is a better option.

    Winner Winner.
    Nintendo always renews trademarks and does nothing with said franchise.

    Every two years or so they renew Eternal Darkness

    Furthermore, if we were going to get GameCube VC leaked/announced, something tells me we'd see something more... impressive, can we say?, than 1080 Snowboarding being a launch title
