SUPER SMASH BROS. is Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year

SUPER SMASH BROS. is Coming To Nintendo Switch This Year

Nintendo Switch‘s first year on the market wildly overachieved everyone’s expectations, even Nintendo’s! But how could Nintendo possibly top a year that had new installments of both the Super Mario and Legend of Zelda franchises? This is how: Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Switch! The announcement trailer dropped the end of a new Nintendo Direct, and it features absolutely no gameplay footage at all. Instead, the Inklings from the Splatoon series suddenly find themselves in a brand new arena, as Mario, Link, and other Nintendo icons dramatically make their presence known.

Oh, it’s time to get excited! Super Smash Bros. is one of the most beloved Nintendo series, and this is bound to be a blockbuster when it hits later this year. It’s been four years since the last Super Smash Bros. was released, and a sequel has been long overdue. Both Mario and Link have picked up some new tricks since their last appearance in the series. It should be interesting to see if Mario can utilize Cappy in this game and even possess other players as he did in Super Mario Odyssey. As for Link, his face was obscured by shadows, but he appeared to be wearing his Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild costume.

While the core gameplay is likely to stay the same, we’re also very curious to see the innovations for this sequel, as well as the inevitable guest characters beyond Nintendo’s roster of characters. Rest assured, we’ll be following this game’s progress every step of the way.
