It’s happening. Super Smash Bros. was announced for the Nintendo Switch this morning and I’m losing my fucking mind. Do you know how much this is going to rule? Do you even know? FUCK.
Other than throwing the Splatoon kids into the fracas, there’s not a whole lot of detail about the game just yet, but I don’t even care. Just knowing it’s coming is amazing news. Suss out the trailer below, which was part of today’s Nintendo Direct presentation.
The title will be out at some point this year and, as per the news release, will feature all of the “recognizable faces like Mario, Link and the Inklings from the Splatoon series,” it said.
That’s really all the information getting around at this stage, but just think about how bloody good this is gonna be. Sure, the 3DS had a version of the game, but there’s something about the portability of the Switch that makes this so much cooler.
The series was introduced way back on the Nintendo 64 and has had a version for most of its major consoles since. We’ll keep you updated with details about the upcoming game as they emerge.
I have permanent shotgun on Kirby for all time. Remember this.
