“Super Smash Bros.” Announced for the Nintendo Switch



Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch

Back in March, Nintendo streamed a video showcasing new video games, downloadable content, and information regarding its upcoming software for their portable game console, “Nintendo Switch,” and their handheld console, “Nintendo 3DS.” The video, titled as a Nintendo Direct, contained many announcements including a ported version of “Luigi’s Mansion” for the 3DS, and “Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker” for the Switch and the 3DS.

Out of all the announced information, the biggest surprise came from the end of the video presentation. Many fans, including myself, were very surprised when Nintendo showcased a trailer for a brand new “Super Smash Bros.” game for the Nintendo Switch.

The video itself did not include a lot of information about the game, however. The only available information given by the trailer were the confirmed inclusion of a few playable characters. The new Super Smash Bros. will feature the “Inkling” avatar character, from the popular ink-based shooter “Splatoon,” and veteran characters “Mario” from the “Super Mario” series and “Link” from the “Legend of Zelda” series. This time around, however, Link sports his apparel from the critically acclaimed “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild,” released last year.

Not much is currently known about the upcoming game, which is set to release this year, other than the few details given in the trailer. With Nintendo’s E3 event taking flight in June, there are lots of questions that will soon be answered by the gaming giant.

After the announcement of the new Smash Bros. title, rumors of new characters have continued to surface the internet. While the rumors featuring the announcement of characters such as “Crash Bandicoot,” “Spyro,” and “Captain Toad” have not been confirmed, any new information for the upcoming game has yet to be officially stated by Nintendo.

In the mean-time, fans of Nintendo’s all-star brawler will have to continue to wait for new information to be released during Nintendo’s E3 press conference in June.
