Super Smash Bros. for Switch roster theories

It’s time for some new faces

Who will take the stage in the new Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch?

We’ll find out at E3 2018, but we aren’t going in totally ignorant. We have some pretty solid theories about who we’ll be able to play as in Nintendo’s eternal fighting game franchise.

What you won’t hear in this video: Obviously freakin’ Mario is gonna be in this game. Breath of the Wild Link. Donkey Kong? Whatever. We love ‘em.

But what random hot Fire Emblem character will we be able to play as? Who will Nintendo resurrect from a dead franchise? What beloved-but-unlikely Nintendo characters could finally show their faces? How many other Links are there???

Super Smash Bros. For Switch is slated for a 2018 release. We’ll learn more next week during E3. You watch watch Nintendo’s announcements during its E3 Nintendo Direct on Tuesday, June 12, at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET.
