A post by EB Games Canada suggests that Street Fighter V: Champion Edition could be coming to the Nintendo Switch, making it the first console outside of the PlayStation 4 to get the Capcom-developed title.

Street Fighter V originally released in 2016, and unlike past titles was a collaboration between Capcom and Sony Interactive Entertainment, which meant it was exclusive to the PS4.

While it was also made available on PC on day one, it’s home on the Sony-based console was all but assured given the partnership. But could that console exclusivity finally be coming to an end?

Street Fighter V coming to the Nintendo Switch?

EB Games Canada first made the post on their Twitter account on January 25, claiming that the fighting title would be coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The tweet also included screenshots from the game, and states that it’s the Champion Edition of the fighting title, and that players can pre-order now.

“Street Fighter V Champion Edition is heading to Nintendo Switch! Preorder now in-store!” it reads, and at the time of this article, still hasn’t been taken down.

Could the PS4 exclusive be coming to the Nintendo Switch?

It should be said to take this with a major grain of salt as mistakes happen with company social media accounts, and this could just be an error. There is also the possibility that their account was compromised.

Former head of Capcom Esports Michael Martin replied to the EB Games tweet with laughing emojis. When asked by a fan if he thought it was a legit leak, he replied “no way.”

Former head of Capcom Esports believed the leak to be fake.

So it’s entirely possible that fans hoping for a portable version of the fighting classic will have to keep dreaming. Martin also tweeted that he believed that someone was “screwing with EB Games Canada’s Twitter,” hinting at the social media account possibly being hacked.

Doubts have been raised as to whether the EB Games social media account have been compromised.

Whether the leak is true or not, we will have to wait and see if either Capcom acknowledges it, or if EB Games pulls the listing down.

Plus there is the fact that the title was developed with the help of Sony, making the console exclusivity a big hurdle to overcome. We will update if we find out anything else.

Riot Games and Twitch have come together to offer Prime Gaming (formerly Twitch Prime) users and Valorant players free in-game cosmetics, with a new Gun Buddy able to pick up and attach to your weapons available now.

Valorant and Twitch have worked together in the past, with fans able to get beta keys from watching select Valorant Twitch streams when the game was in its beta phase.

Now, they’re keeping fans interested with yet another Gun Buddy attachment after giving away the Netter Treter previously.

The charm attachment isn’t likely to make you better at the game, but the new Pay Respects Gun Buddy is a funny one and will at least make for something cool to show your friends (and your enemies).

Valorant Act 3 brings a bunch of new content — but Prime Gaming offers even more on top of that.

If you weren’t able to get the Netter Treter Gun Buddy when it was available, or wasn’t sure how, fret not, because we’ll be able to help you with the new Pay Respects cosmetic so you can adorn it on your weapons.

Here’s what you’ve got to do to get the new Gun Buddy, as well as any drops made available in the future:

  1. Head to your Twitch connections to make sure your Twitch and Riot Games accounts are linked.
  2. Head to the Valorant page on Prime Gaming.
  3. Make sure you’re logged in to Amazon Prime Gaming, or sign up for it (reminder: this costs $12.99 per month).
  4. Once logged in, click ‘Claim Now’ on the Pay Respects Gun Buddy and the item should be added to your in-game inventory next time you play!

Some rewards have already been and gone, but more are on the way.

On the Valorant Prime Gaming page, it states that members can “Unlock Gun Buddies and a Spray in Valorant,” which suggests the next drop might be a new spray, but you should keep your eyes peeled to see what else pops up.

The ‘Pay Respects’ Gun Buddy pays homage to the age-old “Press F to pay respects” meme, so maybe we’ll see something similar from Riot and Twitch in the future.
