Super Smash Bros. has finally been confirmed for the Nintendo Switch, with the fighting game series arriving to the hybrid console within 2018.
The Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. was unveiled at the most recent Nintendo Direct presentation, which also unveiled several other titles for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS.
Super Smash Bros. Confirmed For Nintendo Switch
Ever since the announcement of the Nintendo Switch, gamers have dreamed of playing Super Smash Bros. on the hybrid console. Hype for the arrival of the fighting series intensified when Nintendo filed a trademark for Super Smash Bros. in November 2017, followed by an Easter egg in the recently released Bayonetta 2.
Gamers predicted, and even more so hoped, that Nintendo Direct March 2018 will finally unveil Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch. Well, wish granted.
As the Nintendo Direct presentation was drawing to a close, Nintendo's Yoshiaki Koizumi presented one more video for viewers to watch. It started off as a battle between a boy Inkling and girl Inkling, but the trailer was not about Splatoon 2.
A familiar logo was reflected in one of the Inkling's eyes, followed by the familiar silhouettes of Mario and Link. The video then ended with a burning Super Smash Bros. logo, and at that point, you can just feel the collective excitement of Nintendo fans around the world.
It remains unclear, however, if Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch will be a port of the Wii U version or if Nintendo is developing an entirely new game. In any case, gamers are just excited to know that it will arrive to the hybrid console this year.
Aside from Splatoon 2's Inklings being added to the game's roster, not much else is known about Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch. More details about the game will likely be revealed at E3 2018 in June.
Nintendo Switch, 3DS Games In 2018
The announcement of Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch capped off an eventful Nintendo Direct that showcased several upcoming games for the hybrid console and the Nintendo 3DS.
The presentation revealed that in 2018, Nintendo Switch owners can expect the releases of Dark Souls: Remastered, Mario Tennis Aces, Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy, Octopath Traveler, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Undertale, and Okami HD. Nintendo 3DS owners will also get Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, plus WarioWare Gold and a remastered Luigi's Mansion.
Now, the only question is: Where's that rumored Pokémon RPG for the Nintendo Switch?
