I think some new information dropped. Granted not much like etecoon said one island per switch rumor. That doesn't bother me. Also think confirmed characters list was put out by Nintendolife when I was last searching for news. However I don't visit that site anymore because I got into it with a few users there that are apparently pussies.
I'll check later tonight after work to see if any sites are reporting anything else but seems like radio silence till a direct.
