Nintendo is on top of the world right now. Their hybrid system the Nintendo Switch is currently the fastest selling console in US history according to Nintendo. In hopes to keep that wave going, the company announced 13 new games for the Switch coming in 2018 including fan favorite Super Smash Bros during their Nintendo Direct presentation.
Nintendo is not playing this year.
Switch owners have been holding onto hope that a new version of the popular fighting game will come to the console sooner than later. Their prayers were answered immediately when the announcement trailer appeared during the presentation.
The trailer opens up with the two characters from the popular game Splatoon in a head-to-head battle. The room goes dark and then is lit up by the Smash Bros logo on fire. We don’t get a come character list but we know the two Splatoon characters Mario and Link will be in the game. The rest of the characters remain in the shadow but you can assume Bowser, Toad, and other regulars are in the group. No exact date has confirmed for the game but it is coming this year.
