A number of prominent console-exclusive games including 2018’s God of War and Final Fantasy 7 Remake are coming to PC, according to NVIDIA Geforce NOW testing leaks.
Dataminers have discovered a massive list of console games that could be getting PC ports in the near future. Programmer Ighor July discovered the list of titles hidden in the NVIDIA GeForce NOW program. The list includes several unexpected PlayStation-exclusive titles including FF7 Remake, the Uncharted franchise, and Demon’s Souls, as well as a Nintendo title in New Super Mario Bros Wii.
GeForce NOW is NVIDIA’s cloud gaming platform similar to Google Stadia and Amazon Luna. Upcoming titles go through a testing process before they’re officially added to the service. July managed to access the enabled games list used by GeForce NOW developers. While none of the games on this list are guaranteed to get PC ports, some industry leaders have stated their belief that the NVIDIA leaks include several real projects.
GeForce NOW developers have partnerships with game developers that allow NVIDIA to test their titles before the official release. This internal list doesn’t include much information beyond a title. Because of that, it’s possible some games on this list are either placeholders or red herrings.
The most shocking inclusion is New Super Mario Bros. Wii, which was released for the Nintendo Wii in 2009. Some fans have speculated that Nintendo may allow some ports for the NVIDIA Shield in the Chinese market. However, it’s also possible that the listing was just for a ROM of the game. The Gamecube and Wii emulator Dolphin was included in the leaked GeForce NOW games. NVIDIA developers might have just used the fan-made platform for testing.
Some gaming data figureheads have shared their thoughts on the GeForce leaks. SteamDB creator Pavel Djundik expressed his skepticism about some of the listed titles. He went to explain that a similar lack of file security has led to leaks on Steam, something Djundik is very familiar with. Windows Central reporter Jez Corden has more faith. His team believes that the leaks are real, citing established codenames for upcoming Fable and Typhoon projects. If any of the projects are real, expect developers to react to the accidental spoilers.
