Nintendo Switch


 

A Super Smash Bros. title is coming to the Nintendo Switch in 2018.

The surprise announcement came at the end of the latest Nintendo Direct. What started as a variation the original Splatoon‘s announcement trailer quickly turned dark—and then fiery, revealing the recognizable Smash Bros. logo, as well as a few hints at characters we’ll be seeing, including Link as seen in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario (sans Cappy) as well as Splatoon’s Inklings. Near the end of the trailer, the silhouettes of a few other characters can be spotted, too, including Bowser, Samus, and Donkey Kong.

Nintendo hasn’t stated whether this Smash Bros. is a completely new game or a port of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, though the simple Super Smash Bros. placeholder title is definitely reminiscent of the original announcements for the new Yoshi and Kirby Switch games. Plus, it’s listed as “Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. (working title)” on Nintendo’s site, so we’re hopeful that this will be a brand new game.

Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Switch this year

We're not sure if it's a new game or a port, but some version of Nintendo's crossover brawler is coming to the Switch in 2018.
