Super Smash Bros. is definitely coming to Nintendo Switch – I mean, it has to, right? Every Nintendo console since the N64 has had a version of Smash Bros., and NoA president Reggie Fils-Aime has slipped up and mentioned the series is coming to the Switch on more than one occasion. Sure, some of the Smash Bros. for Switch leaks turned out to be fakes, but that doesn’t mean it’s not happening.
Well, we may have yet another hint something is in the works. The official Danish Nintendo website recently gave away 15 trips to Denmark’s own Legoland, and contestants had to fill out a quick Nintendo knowledge testing question in order to enter. The question asked, “What colorful shooter game was released on July 21 for the Nintendo Switch?” Obviously, the answer is Splatoon 2, but one of the options given is Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch. Check out screenshot evidence, below…
Now, you could write this off as a standard multiple choice red herring, but Nintendo doesn’t usually play around with stuff like this. They know how closely fans watch everything they do – they wouldn’t drop a completely made up game into a poll like this.
So, if Super Smash Bros. is coming to Nintendo Switch, and it’s deluxe version of the Wii U game (as most expect), then what’s the hold up? Why didn’t they announce the game at E3 2017? Well, nothing Smash Bros. related, even a Wii U port, happens without series creator Masahiro Sakurai’s full involvement. Sakurai is infamous for working himself nearly to death on every new Smash game and needing a long layoff afterwards, so maybe he just hasn’t got around to Smash Bros. for Switch yet, even though it would just be a “simple” port. Or, who knows? Maybe we’re getting yet another full sequel? Anything’s possible!
