Last night, Nintendo provided a brief peek at the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game, which will come out later this year. We got release dates and announcements for lots of new games coming to the popular console.
Essentially, this release is Nintendo saying "Anything Sony can do, we can do on a bus", because playing games on public transport has somehow become the definitive argument for owning a Switch. Numerous games that came with it did well because of the success of the gaming console. Nintendo has been hugely supportive of bringing independent releases to the Nintendo Switch console, and this partnership will mean even more wonderful games are released on the platform.
If you're on the fence as to whether this incredibly-cleverly-named game is worth your time and money, we suggest you check out our review. The pairing of Super Smash Bros. with the Switch is essentially a marriage of two powerhouse products, with the wedding between the two set for sometime this year. For Wii U or an entirely new game. Plus, given that it's been almost four years since that last game, it seems reasonable that a whole new game is more than possible. It's different from the Wii U/3DS game logo, and if you look back across all the past Smash games you'll notice the logo design is different each time.
