After another exciting Nintendo Direct full of new content for existing titles, fans were gifted a treat with the surprise announcement of a new Super Smash Bros. title to be released on the Nintendo Switch. The new titles still coming exclusively to the 3DS reaffirms Nintendo's commitment to what some presumed would be left by the wayside in the Switch's wake. When a closeup of Mario and Link were shown in the Super Smash Bros. trailer, the hero of Hyrule's attire matches that of the one he wore in Breath of the Wild.
Yes, that's right! Nintendo has listened to their fans and will be releasing a Nintendo Switch version of their very popular Brawl 'em up Super Smash Bros.
For pro-players, this means you won't have to cut your teeth again on an entirely new game.
Super Smash Bros originally came out for the Nintendo 64 in 1999 and there have been several sequels since.
The arrival of the classic brawler on Nintendo's best-selling console was the biggest announcement at the gaming giant's Direct event on Thursday.
Finally, Phantasy Star Online 2: Cloud, announced previous year, got an update: It will include Breath of the Wild costumes and equipment.
The competitors cover the stage in ink to try to get the most coverage, as we see them do in the Smash Bros. trailer.
We wish we had more to discuss and explain, but Nintendo seems to be keeping things under wraps. Which of the Switch and 3DS games on sale are you picking up? Nintendo will also be releasing the first paid DLC expansion for "Splatoon 2" this summer and it includes new single-player levels.
"South Park: The Fractured But Whole" will arrive for the Nintendo Switch on April 24.
