SUPER SMASH BROS. is Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year

A new Super Smash Bros. is coming to Switch this year, Nintendo has announced.

A Switch entry of the series has been expected and long rumored.

Ultimately, regardless of what magic is cooked up inside Nintendo, all you need to know is that Super Smash Bros is coming to Switch, and it's happening in 2018. Maybe some characters from ARMS will make their way into the game.

It certainly appears that the game is a brand new title for the Switch.

Finally, Phantasy Star Online 2: Cloud, announced a year ago, got an update: It will include Breath of the Wild costumes and equipment.

Furthermore, Nintendo is also adding characters to the roster in the form of the Inklings from Splatoon. And in a move that's bound to disgruntle long-time fans, a lot of the games announced were ports of existing titles present on past Nintendo systems like the Wii U or third-party games now slated to hit Nintendo hybrid console.

Also featured in the trailer are Mario and Link. An orange-hair Inkling girl, a character from Splatoon, turns back and sees Mario and the archer Link from the Zelda games.

We identified some of the characters from the trailer yesterday, but a new image making its way around the Internet claims to have figured out most of the other roster members.

A few months later, the Switch will be getting one of its most anticipated games. For one, the Switch has already been home to a ton of ports of Wii U titles. Then all of a sudden the screen goes dark and in the squid kid's eye we see reflected the Smash Bros. logo. Ubisoft is set to release South Park: The Fractured But Whole on April 24th, 2018 while Capcom is porting over Okami HD to the Switch releasing later this year.

The news follows last night's Nintendo Direct reveal that Undertale will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. eventually.

Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U were released on October 3 and November 21, 2014, respectively, in North America.
