Super Smash Bros. coming to Switch in 2018

Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct shared a lot of information many gamers were aware of: Mario Tennis Aces, Splatoon 2 content, and so on. However, host Yoshiaki Koizumi held onto the best at the end of the roughly half-hour presentation: Super Smash Bros. is coming to Nintendo Switch in 2018.

The clip picks up after the Splatoon 2 announcements, where two inklings square off in a messy paint battle, only for the screen to go dark. The inkling girl stops and looks up to see the Super Smash Bros. circular logo reflected in her eye as reflections of Mario and Link briefly appear.

Preceding the Super Smash Bros. clip, Nintendo unveiled some of their 2018 line-up for both the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS consoles. Titles include:
