Nintendo of America kicked up a frenzy of excitement on Twitter after announcing plans to bring Super Smash Bros. to its Switch console. The June date is a worldwide release date, and we should expect Nintendo to confirm this date late on today during their Nintendo Direct show. It's all quite dramatic.
Ultimately, regardless of what magic is cooked up inside Nintendo, all you need to know is that Super Smash Bros is coming to Switch, and it's happening in 2018. At the Nintendo Switch's announcement, we heard nothing. Okami is getting an HD version and a Switch port, which will let you feel like an artist swinging your Joycon. Nevertheless, most, if not all of the aforementioned figures from the Big N's huge stable of iconic IPs are surely a lock, as many fans would likely boycott the game in some capacity for their exclusion.
Considering that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U isn't that old and is still very popular, an upgraded port would make sense.
YoYo Games has partnered with Nintendo to allow developers to export games directly from its GameMaker Studio 2 to the console. Inklings, the human-squid hybrids that can transform to swim through pools of ink, have never been featured in a Super Smash Bros. game before.
This week's update to the Nintendo eShop brings new software and sales for those looking to get some of the best Switch and 3DS titles.
Based on the Inklings' feature in the trailer, we can deduce that they will be playable characters on the Smash for Switch roster.
Critically acclaimed role-playing game Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story is being remade for 3DS along with Bowser Jr.'s Journey for a 2019 release. Both Mario and Link have picked up some new tricks since their last appearance in the series. Unfortunately the game appears to be only available for Japan where it will be launched this summer.
The competitors cover the stage in ink to try to get the most coverage, as we see them do in the Smash Bros. trailer.
