Nintendo Surprises Fans with Super Smash Bros. Switch Announcement

Super Smash Bros is a game franchise owned by Nintendo and created by Masahiro Sakurai in 1999.

Super Smash Bros. Switch characters - who is confirmed so far?

In terms of obscurities I'd still love to see Nell or one of the Advance Wars crew, plus Birdo, Chibi-Robo, and the return of the Ice Climbers. While some fans were satisfied with the amount of Mario games coming to their consoles, the unanimous fan-favourite was the revelation of an upcoming Super Smash Bros. game. Nevertheless, most, if not all of the aforementioned figures from the Big N's huge stable of iconic IPs are surely a lock, as many fans would likely boycott the game in some capacity for their exclusion. So what do we know about the new release from this?

To drum up excitement (as if it needs any), Nintendo released a teaser video featuring Inklings from Splatoon.

The game includes playable versions of Nintendo's most iconic characters, including Mario, Fox (from Starfox), Link (from Legend of Zelda), Samus ( from Metroid), Yoshi, Pikachu, and loads more. So after the latest game for Switch was announced, the famed director took to Twitter to ensure fans that he is indeed working on the next title. In a quick turn of events, a fiery Smash logo appears.

While the official website doesn't offer any new information just yet, it does contain a nifty version of the teaser reveal, should you want to relive the magic of the video once more.

"We're thrilled to be entering into a relationship with Nintendo, with the opportunities this will bring to our game development community, and most importantly, the players themselves", said James Cox, General Manager of YoYo Games.

The fifth Super Smash Bros. game will mark the first time the Inklings from Splatoon will be featured in the fighting series. Super Smash Bros.is one of Nintendo's most popular game franchises.
