Nintendo Surprises Fans with Super Smash Bros. Switch Announcement

Super Smash Bros. is coming to Switch this year

Super Smash Bros. has been announced for Nintendo Switch, making millions of dreams come true and securing the console as a powerhouse throughout 2018.

Rumors have been circulating for some time now about a Switch version of Smash Bros. At the end of the teaser, the year "2018" flashed after the Smash logo. Now, a new etching of those characters could make the starting roster a bit clearer.

Super Smash Bros Nintendo Switch will arrive with new characters in tow, widening its already impressive roster of characters from across all of Nintendo's history and from other publishers as well.

Among the surprising ports is the original Luigi's Mansion, which will be getting a 3DS remake intended for release this year.

Finally, Phantasy Star Online 2: Cloud, announced previous year, got an update: It will include Breath of the Wild costumes and equipment.

To drum up excitement (as if it needs any), Nintendo released a teaser video featuring Inklings from Splatoon. An excellent spring lineup including Mario, Link, Captain Toad, Amaterasu, Cartman and more....and is that the Smash Bros. symbol?

The creatures can be leveled up once captured, and you can battle your T-Rex or velociraptor against other players. If it sounds interesting, fans are encouraged to register at the official site now.

The clues in the last 20 seconds of the video suggest new characters will join the all-star cast of Super Smash Bros.

The game includes playable versions of Nintendo's most iconic characters, including Mario, Fox (from Starfox), Link (from Legend of Zelda), Samus ( from Metroid), Yoshi, Pikachu, and loads more.

While this was by far the biggest announcement, Nintendo also revealed a single player expansion for Splatoon 2, along with a handful of other titles, such as Dark Souls Remastered and Mario Tennis Aces. In fact, it's been the most highly anticipated Nintendo Switch game since the console's release. but this game might not be what fans were expecting.

So what do you think of the new Nintendo eShop titles?

YoYo Games General Manager James Cox believes the partnership allows for many more games to be released on the platform. Much like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was an upgraded version of Mario Kart 8 on the Wii U. But that doesn't appear to be the case here.
