Super Smash Bros. Announced For Nintendo Switch


Nintendo's smash hit fighting game crossover series is making its way to the Switch at last. These questions are still in the air, along with another import one: is Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch a sequel or a port?

The teaser for the new game also features inklings from Nintendo's 2015 third-person shooter Splatoon, and we can only hope they, Mario and Link will be joined by some of Nintendo's finest.

While the official website doesn't offer any new information just yet, it does contain a nifty version of the teaser reveal, should you want to relive the magic of the video once more. Would it be a remaster of Smash Bros Wii U? Switch reveal trailer. From left to right, the drawings indicate that the likes of Yoshi, Pit, Donkey Kong, Princess Peach (or Daisy), Ness, Marth, Mario, Link, Sheik, Pikachu, Kirby, Samus, Bowser, Captain Falcon, Fox, and Wario will be starters, with a couple of others still remaining indeterminable.

Obviously, we won't know for sure until Nintendo shares more details about the game, but there are a few things we can look at to make an educated guess.

In many ways, this could be a GOTY treatment for Smash Bros that we simply don't see from the company. Super Smash Bros. for the Switch will be the sixth installment in the franchise, and potentially the most popular, given the success of the Switch console. The presentation is known for its influx of upcoming video game releases; many of them being major announcements. No word on whether Bandai Namco will eventually localize it, but chances are slim considering that the last localized Taiko Drum Master title was launched on the PS2 back in 2004.

Super Smash Bros. is set to launch in 2018 for Nintendo Switch.

Despite the obvious disadvantage of having a mushroom for a head and being two feet tall, Mushroom seems to have held himself well throughout Nintendo's various race/tennis/combat console games, like a 2D version of Joe Pesci from Goodfellas.
