Super Smash Bros. sequel coming to Switch this year

10 March 2018

With a new game coming and Nintendo's popularity booming, this could be the flawless time for the company to finally capitalise fully on the esports market.

Simply taking Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and porting it over to the Switch would be enough to secure tons of sales and the happiness of every Nintendo fan around the world. All these characters are pitted against each other, making it one of the most awaited Nintendo Switch games ever. The presentation seemingly ended with a ton of information on Splatoon 2 but the last video announced Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch. A teaser accompanied the announcement in which Silhouettes of Mario and The Legend of Zelda's Link appeared ending with a giant, burning Super Smash Bros. logo. Super Smash Bros Switch is real and it's coming out this year. It seems like Super Smash Bros. for Switch is a sequel...of sorts.

The addition of new games to the Switch reflects the phenomenal success that the console has had so far. For those watching closely, the Inklings aren't the only change; Link's appearance has been altered to match his look in Breath of the Wild.

You could say this adds more substance to the theory it's an enhanced port, with the director okay to bring a smaller-scale project to the finishing line, or you could argue a port wouldn't need someone like Sakurai overseeing the project. There are some amusing images of guesses going around the internet but with the game's release slated for this year fans won't have to wait long to find out who will be included in this game.

This likely means Undertale will launch in the summer or later, something that's made more apparent by a cute and freaky quote from creator Toby Fox himself: "I'm excited to use GameMaker Studio 2 to put Undertale on Nintendo Switch".

Activision's hugely successful Crash Bandicoot N'Sane Trilogy will finally be launching on the Switch this year as well after a record-breaking run on the PS4. One of the best things about the "Smash Bros." franchise is that it has unbelievable guest characters.

It would be odd if Nintendo didn't try and top those numbers this time round.

We'll be regularly updating this page with info as it's released, so make sure to check back for the latest.
