Every time a rumor pops up about Beyond Good and Evil 2, it inevitably gets shot down.
Now, though, a new rumor has surfaced that could have some legs: Destructoid reports that several sources have confirmed that the sequel to the popular 2003 video game will finally arrive as a Nintendo NX exclusive.
The first source of this latest rumor comes from Dual Pixels writer Alexander Maier, who recently published a lot of rumors about the Nintendo NX console. Many questioned most of Maier's claims about the NX, but with Beyond Good and Evil 2, Maier handed over a document to back up his claims.
However, the website contacted a second source, who also gave a lot of "the same bullet points regarding the future of Beyond Good and Evil." And those details matched up with the document provided by Maier.
"According to the supposed leak, the game is currently assigned the working title Beyond Good and Evil: The Prejudices of Philosophers," writes Destructoid. "This is apparently a reference to a specific chapter in the philosophical text 'Beyond Good and Evil' by Friedrich Nietzsche, which details how morality can be altered by authority, and the ways black-and-white morality overlooks the larger complexity of the nature of morals."
The first Beyond Good & Evil is an action-adventure game with stealth and puzzle-solving that follows a young photojournalist, Jade, in the year 2435, as she uncovers information about an evil that threatens her world. Although the game was not a commercial success, critics often praise it.
There is, however, no official confirmation from Nintendo about the title on NX, but the company also has not yet offered any details on its NX console. It would not be out of character for Nintendo to use a much-anticipated title to launch its next console, considering that it did something similar with Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U.
Ubisoft has also continued to confirm that it hasn't given up development on a sequel to Beyond Good & Evil, although that sequel has supposedly been in the works since 2008. Could it finally arrive with the NX? If so, it's likely gamers won't learn about it until this year's E3 from June 14-16 in Los Angeles, when Nintendo finally unveils more information about its next console.
