This could be nothing. Or it could be everything! The father of Mortal Kombat and Injustice 2 creative director Ed Boon has tweeted out the following image in celebration of St. Patrick's Day:

"Decided to SWITCH the red with green for St. Patricks Day."
Now listen. Ed Boon is a human being who has other interests and hobbies outside of Injustice 2 and things related directly to NetherRealm Studios. We need to make sure to give him a little bit of breathing room and allow him to be a Nintendo fan. Perhaps that's all that this is. Maybe Boon is just psyched about his Nintendo Switch and he's celebrating this holiday with the rest of us by tweaking the Switch logo to be a little more festive.
OR! Perhaps Ed Boon is teasing something bigger. Perhaps Boon is hinting at Injustice 2 making its way to the Nintendo Switch. We know it's certainly possible. The Switch is perfectly suited to fighting games since it comes with two controllers right out of the box, and we believe that the hardware is more than capable of running Injustice 2. It might not have all of the same effects, bells, and whistles as its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One counterparts, but it's possible. The Nintendo Switch can run Unreal Engine 4 games, after all, and Injustice 2 was actually developed in Unreal 3.
Of course as soon as the tweet went out fans responded immediately, exclaiming that the tweet was proof that Injustice 2 was destined to land on the Switch. We have to admit that we got a bit excited as well. Every time there's a new character reveal around the corner, Boon always uses his Twitter account to send out little teases about who the character will be. When we see Boon tweet things innocently and out of the blue, it's usually because he's teasing something big.
What do you guys think?! Could this mean that Injustice 2 on the Nintendo Switch is a sure thing, or are we reading too deeply into this? Chime in on Facebook or Twitter and let us know, and stay tuned to WWG for all the latest on Injustice 2!
