But the question remains: will it be a brand new game or will it just be a port of the 2014 entry on the Wii U and 3DS?
During the new Nintendo Direct on Thursday, a new Super Smash Bros. game was confirmed. In all appearances, it looked like Nintendo was going to show one more small Splatoon 2 video following the Splatoon 2 presentation. A massive burning symbol appears: The symbol of the long-running "Super Smash Bros." franchise, which goes all the way back to the Nintendo 64 in the late 1990s. When used in game, this amiibo lets your character perform the Praise the Sun pose "with reckless abandon". But after announcing a pretty impressive slate of Nintendo Switch ports-Okami! It should be interesting to see if Mario can utilize Cappy in this game and even possess other players as he did in Super Mario Odyssey.
PC indie hit Undertale was also teased for the Nintendo Switch. But there were still several announcements and reveals to get excited for, including a very special one that most of us will be talking about for the rest of 2018. Would it just be a remake of Wii U version, a special deluxe, expanded version of that and the 3DS version, or a brand-new game altogether?
We wish we had more to discuss and explain, but Nintendo seems to be keeping things under wraps.
The video game giant also announced the release of exciting games like the brand new Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, which includes remastered versions of previous games playable for the first time on a Nintendo console.
This year is the first full year with the Nintendo Switch.
If you've never played a "Smash Bros." game, think of it like a fighting game version of "Mario Kart".
