Dr. Serkan Toto, an industry leader in Japan with a great track record on leaking information about Nintendo, recently announced that Bandai Namco is developing several games for Nintendo’s upcoming console, the NX, including a Super Smash Bros. game to launch alongside the device.

This was one of the talking points on
this week’s episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts on what to expect with Super Smash Bros. for NX (assuming the rumor is true, of course) or keep reading for a brief, brief summary.

We all agree that mostly this game is going to be an upgraded port of the Wii U version, coming completely with all the DLC from the previous game. We’re optimistic that there will be a bit of new content—Wolf and Ice Climbers, new costumes like Detective Pikachu, possibly some newcomers, possibly some popular returning stages from other games in the series, and more are all strong possibilities—but we expect nothing more than the rough equivalent of one or two DLC packs at most. The game could also bring a few touch-ups, like a cleaned-up character selection screen, custom moves for the DLC fighters to bring them up to snuff with the rest of the roster, and more. While we’d love to see a few more modes, and we do think there are possibilities on the table, we haven’t come to a consensus on our various ideas for Target Test, Smash Run, and more.

We’re not sure, however, how Nintendo might want to distribute this game, especially for those who already purchased the Wii U game. It’d be fantastic if they could offer some sort of discounted price for Wii U owners, but we’re not confident enough in their track record with online offerings to believe yet that they’ll offer any substantial cushion.

I first played Donkey Kong Country before even turning three years old, and have since grown into an avid gamer and passionate Nintendo fan. I started working at Zelda Informer in August 2012, and helped found Gamnesia, which launched on February 1, 2013. Outside of the journalism game, I'm an invested musician who loves arranging music from video games and other media. If you care to follow my endeavors, you can check out my channel here: http://youtube.com/user/pokemoneinstein I was rummaging through some things a while back and found my first grade report card. My teacher said, "Oddly enough, Colin doesn't like to write unless it's about computers or computer-type games. In his journal he likes to write about what level he is on in 'Mario Land,' but he doesn't often write about much else." I was pretty amused, given where I am today. Also I have a dog, and he's a pretty cool guy. I don't care for elephants much. I suppose they're okay. You've read plenty now; carry on.
