Super Smash Bros' Shadowy Roster Allegedly Decoded

Super Smash Bros' Shadowy Roster Allegedly Decoded

If a Spring or Summer release was in the works, the game likely would've had a more exact release date attached to it.

So many cool games have been confirmed at the recent Nintendo Direct, one of them is Undertale which is making its way to the portable console. Nintendo spent a lot of time filling out the library of the Switch and talking about 3DS games that will probably do well without lighting the world on fire; it's not like Captain Toad has wide appeal outside of Nintendo diehards.

Nintendo hasn't said exactly when Switch owners will be able to get their hands on Super Smash Bros, beyond confirming its "2018" release.

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.

In many ways, this could be a GOTY treatment for Smash Bros that we simply don't see from the company.

For now, though, we're going to treat this like an entirely new Smash Bros. game and assume that Nintendo will continue the good work they did with Smash Bros Wii U by finding a way to advance this timeless fighting series yet again. Who do you think is a part of the roster based on the character silhouettes? The last outing on Wii U was arguably the best we've seen yet, bringing with it a truly staggering roster of fighters and stages. The presentation is known for its influx of upcoming video game releases; many of them being major announcements.

To drum up excitement (as if it needs any), Nintendo released a teaser video featuring Inklings from Splatoon. There's no question that the hybrid portable console is capable of some impressive things, but can Nintendo wring that much out of it this early on in its life cycle? We don't know, but we certainly hope so!
