April will see a big 3.0 update to Splatoon 2, with over 100 new items, new stages, and a new Rank X for Ranked Mode. It's all quite dramatic. At the end of the teaser, the year "2018" flashed after the Smash logo. What is your biggest take-away from this Nintendo Direct? That's when Kimishima says, "Well, actually, we have one more announcement..." Still, none of these titles for Switch matched the hype Super Smash Bros has had within hours of its announcement. The original game was a lunch title for the Nintendo GameCube in 2001. Would it just be a remake of Wii U version, a special deluxe, expanded version of that and the 3DS version, or a brand-new game altogether?
Which brings me to my next point, is this really going to be an entirely new Super Smash Bros game? Dr. Serkan Toto, CEO of Japan-based consultant firm Kantan Games, Inc., tweeted in January 2016 that Bandai Namco was allegedly developing several titles for the Switch (then known as the NX) with Smash Bros. planned as a launch title.
With a new game coming and Nintendo's popularity booming, this could be the ideal time for the company to finally capitalise fully on the esports market.
To speculate a bit more, we wonder what other new characters could be joining the inklings on the roster. The new game will be available for both the Switch and the 3DS.
In the game, players draw brushstrokes on screen with the Celestial Brush to battle opponents or solve puzzles.
Here's a look at the last game in the series, "Super Smash Bros". So far, we don't know many details, but it'll suffice for now.
