Super Smash Bros. is finally coming to the Nintendo Switch
In a pretty epic teaser trailer, Nintendo finally confirmed Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Nintendo Switch at their March 8th Nintendo Direct event. We don’t know much about the game outside of Mario, Link and some Splatoon characters being included in the game, but we do know the game is coming and that’s good enough for us!
You can view the teaser trailer below.
Some interesting notes from the Super Smash Bros. teaser trailer:
- It looks like Splatoon Inklings will be in the next installment of Super Smash Bros.
- It appears that we’ll be getting the The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild version of Link.
- Several other character can be seen at the end of the trailer including Bowser, Donkey Kong, Kid Icarus and many more.
We’ve yet to get an official title for the game and while we’re hoping this is a brand new game, this could very well be a port of the 2014 Wii U version of Super Smash Bros.
Super Smash Bros. is the crossover fighting game from Nintendo and was first introduced to gamers in 1999 on the Nintendo 64. I personally spent a TON of time beating on my little brother with Fox and Donkey Kong.
The game features all of Nintendo’s franchise characters including Mario, Link, Samus, Pikachu and many more. Over the years that character list has grown to feature the likes of Sonic The Hedgehog, Solid Snake, Marth and Roy, the Ice Climbers, Megaman and so many more.
What I’ve always loved about Super Smash Bros. is that it combined nostalgic characters with shallow movesets that could allow anyone to join in and have fun. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of fighting games like Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Killer Instinct or Street Fighter because I just didn’t have the patience to learn all the movesets and combos. Super Smash Bros. allows anyone to come in and experiment without having to do any sort of prior research.
It’s exciting to get Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch considering the portability of the console. I can’t wait to bring my Switch over to a friends place and have us all join in on a game.
I foresee a many nights filled with pizza, beer and all our favourite characters duking it out… and possibly the end of some friendships.
We’ll keep updating the site with more information on Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch as we get it.
