Masahiro Sakurai Confirms Involvement on New Super Smash Bros

Nintendo Direct

Nintendo Direct

Super Smash Bros is finally coming to Nintendo Switch, Nintendo announced at the end of its Nintendo Direct presentation Thursday to wild fan applause from those assembled at the Nintendo World Store in New York City.

The teaser shows two characters from "Splatoon" shooting each other with paintball-like guns.

A tweet from SourceGaming was able to mostly translate the tweet to English: "While we have not gotten to the point where we can announce the game's title, I have been working on the title in silence day after day", Sakurai's translated tweet reads.

"Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS are being propelled through 2018 with an energized lineup of games of all kinds", said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing.


We didn't receive confirmation of whether this new release would be a port, tweaked remake, or an original Smash title.

Until then, speculation will be rampant and theories will be thriving in the Smash community. It will likely be the most highly anticipated new Switch game since the console was released.

Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of the Super Smash Bros. series, confirmed that he is working on the Nintendo Switch version of the franchise.

This is exciting now just because Super Smash Bros.is a good franchise, but also because the Switch is a near-perfect platform for fighting games, and especially this series' brand of local multiplayer-friendly fun.
