Nintendo Announces Super Smash Bros. Switch For 2018 Release

Adjust Comment Print

Super Smash Bros is finally coming to Nintendo Switch, Nintendo announced at the end of its Nintendo Direct presentation Thursday to wild fan applause from those assembled at the Nintendo World Store in New York City.

It may be assumed that the Inklings of Splatoon 2 will join the battle, and Mario and Link will be there too from their appearances in the trailer. Now series creator Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that he's working on the game releasing this year.

During a Nintendo Direct online broadcast on 8 March, the company screened a teaser for the brawler, which pits various well-known and obscure Nintendo characters against each other in a free-for-all.

Until then, speculation will be rampant and theories will be thriving in the Smash community.

None of the characters may be considered as surprise additions, as they have all already appeared in previous Super Smash Bros. titles. Among the more interesting suggestions are Twintelle from ARMS and Crash from Crash Bandicoot, who will be making his way to the Nintendo Switch with Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy. "Please wait until we can release more information, or until release day!"

Super Smash Brothers for Wii U notoriously put a lot of strain on the longtime Kirby and Smash director, so fans have been skeptical on whether or not Sakurai would return for the Switch Smash Brothers.
