Super Smash Bros. Switch Launches In 2018, Nintendo Direct Reveals
Nintendo finally announces Smash for Switch.
Nintendo teased that its Nintendo Direct event for March 2018 was done before sharing one last thing. It turned out to be the biggest and best news of all: Super Smash Bros. is officially coming to Nintendo Switch. And that's not all, as you won't have to wait all that long for it: Super Smash Bros. for Switch is coming in 2018, Nintendo announced by way of a cool teaser trailer. You can watch it above.
The trailer starts out by showing Inklings from the Splatoon series, who will apparently be new playable characters. We also see returning Smash characters like Mario and Link. You can bet that they will also show up in the game, and many more. The trailer also includes a tantalizing tease for what other characters may be in the game; you can see the silhouettes of these characters in the trailer still below. It appears like the likes of Samus, Donkey Kong, and Bowser may be in there, but it's hard to make out many of the specifics--though you can be sure that fans will try.
As of yet, we don't know if this a new version of Super Smash Bros. Wii U or a brand-new game. If it is a port, it could follow the model of Mario Kart 8. The game was originally released on Wii U before coming to Switch in a Deluxe version that featured more content. Both the trailer and a subsequent press release remain ambiguous about what form this game will take.
Which characters do you want to see in Smash Bros. for Switch? Let us know in the comments below. For more on today's Nintendo Direct, check out GameSpot's roundup of all the Nintendo Direct news.
