If you were worried that the Nintendo Switch was never going to see a Super Smash Bros. title, then you can put those worries to rest. During the most recent Nintendo Direct presentation, the cat was let out of the bag that we would be getting a new title on the most recent console and that it would be coming at us this year. Yes, you did just read that. There will be a Switch addition to the Super Smash Bros. franchise and you will only have to wait eight months at most to get it. It could be sooner, but on the long end, that would be the wait. Unless there are delays and then that whole number line I drew gets skewed even more. Let us all hope that is not the case at the end of the day.
While this new Super Smash Bros. has been announced and given a nice little teaser, which you can see below, there is not much more in the way of details. It does look like Mario and Link are confirmed to be back in the mix. I did not think there would be any reason to doubt that. It also looks like Inkling from Splatoon will be back as well. Extra points on the weird fake out that they tried to do as well. You will see what I am talking about if you have not already just skipped down to the video we have below. Have a look and then get ready to wait for more updates to flow for Super Smash Bros.
