It’s been almost four years since the last entry in the Super Smash Bros. series. Fans have been patiently waiting for a new game for Nintendo Switch, and the latest Nintendo Direct delivered on that, showcasing a teaser trailer for the next addition to the Super Smash Bros. family.

The teaser video showed off two inklings from the Splatoon series battling it out, confirming their inclusion in this new title. The trailer also showed off silhouettes of other Nintendo characters, including Mario (to no surprise), and a Breath of the Wild incarnation of Link. The end of the teaser revealed a 2018 release date. You can check out the teaser above!

While many have predicted that a port of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, and maybe for Nintendo 3DS, would come to Switch, the trailer actually doesn’t make it clear if this is a port with extra features or a brand new game altogether. Link’s Breath of the Wild look may be a sign of the latter, though he could just as easily be receiving a new skin in honor of the latest Zelda game’s success. We’ll need to wait for more information from Nintendo, it seems, before we know for certain.

For now, let the hype train take you away. Let’s get excited for Smash Bros. on Nintendo Switch!

Our Verdict


Adam Sherrill
Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
