Super Smash Bros is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018

But, for now, we're simply glad a new Super Smash Bros. is happening.

A new Super Smash Bros. game is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

The trailer, which was surprisingly ominous for a Nintendo release, also announced that the Inklings from multiplayer shoot-em-up Splatoon would be joining the fight. Super Smash Bros. is one of the most beloved Nintendo series, and this is bound to be a blockbuster when it hits later this year. We can see from the trailer that Mario, Link (possibly taking on his Breath of the Wild appearance from the looks of things), Donkey Kong, Bowser, and more obvious picks will be making their way to the game as well.

Is this a remake?

Which brings me to my next point, is this really going to be an entirely new Super Smash Bros game?

To speculate a bit more, we wonder what other new characters could be joining the inklings on the roster. It will include the same content that came out for PS4 gamers a year ago which is the first three games in the series remade with a better looking graphics engine. A teaser accompanied the announcement in which Silhouettes of Mario and The Legend of Zelda's Link appeared ending with a giant, burning Super Smash Bros. logo.

Video game fans, we have news to get you incredibly excited.

It's all very foreboding, but then the game is about Nintendo's cutesy characters beating the crap out of each other. It's unclear if this entry in the popular fighting game series will be a port of the Wii U version like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was but it has a 2018 release window and will show up with playable characters from Splatoon.

This is just one of the new games announced for Nintendo's systems (hey, the 3DS is still being supported for now). What is your biggest take-away from this Nintendo Direct?

Did you notice the couple Nintendo 3DS games mentioned in the previous sections? Of course, there's also the Crash Bandicoot N Sane trilogy.
