Neimod, a 3DS Scene hacker, has been approached by Nintendo and has been hired by force to work for them (Not kidding, they threatened him and stuff).
A device now known as the "Switch ST" from early on in development was made during production and was going to be backwards-compatible with the Nintendo 3DS.
Nintendo had a specific plan if the public found out that Neimod was hired, which is confirmed by this Twitter tweet:

That is all for now. If anything gets updated, I'll edit this thread.
