Super Smash Bros. is coming to Nintendo Switch

Nintendo’s fighting game is back ... with Splatoon fighters!

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch is coming this year, Nintendo announced today. Nintendo revealed the Switch version of the game during today’s Nintendo Direct.

The Switch version of Super Smash Bros. will be released this year and apparently includes the squid kids from Splatoon. Otherwise, Nintendo was light on details. In a news release, the company referred to the title as Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros. and noted that “recognizable faces like Mario, Link and the Inklings from the Splatoon series” appear in the teaser, which is posted above.

Of course, the Switch version’s biggest appeal is the ability to play Smash Bros. anytime, anywhere, so whatever else Nintendo has planned is pretty much gravy.

Nintendo has released four games in the Smash franchise so far, starting with Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 64. The series continues to have a dedicated following, with Super Smash Bros. Melee for GameCube and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U appearing at this year’s Evo fighting game tournament.
