Nintendo Announces Super Smash Bros. For Switch, Coming This Year


As people look for details, there are always those willing to give. Besides the normal shots, Mario Tennis Aces introduces three new shots, an energy meter, and the ability to break your opponent's racket mid game. The news was delivered via a witty banter between two of the game's endearing characters, Sans and Papyrus.

Finally, as is custom, Nintendo closed out the Direct with a big teaser trailer.

When is Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros coming out?

Mario is Nintendo's biggest franchise, we all know it's likely that another Mario character's probably going to join the roster. Will we see the beloved fighting series this year? I would love to see Kamek!

An online portion will be available for all you competitive tennis superstars.

You can look for both games to launch this spring for the Nintendo Switch.

Here's what we know so far. Players will need to fight darkness with darkness and embrace the new Netherborn class, which offers four new occult powers.

If you ever wanted to play a game that is unforgiving to the player, Dark Souls is it. Delve into an epic dark fantasy universe stricken by the Curse.

"South Park: The Fractured But Whole" will arrive for the Nintendo Switch on April 24. It's no surprise that the majority of the Direct was dedicated to upcoming Switch games and DLC.

And Undertale on the Switch feels like the kind of thing that's created to make money hand over fist.

A few months later, the Switch will be getting one of its most anticipated games. While it saw a sequel on the 3DS called Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, it's heartening to see Nintendo bring the original to a new audience on the 3DS as a remake. Of course, there's also the Crash Bandicoot N Sane trilogy. Dr. Serkan Toto, CEO of Japan-based consultant firm Kantan Games, Inc., tweeted in January 2016 that Bandai Namco was allegedly developing several titles for the Switch (then known as the NX) with Smash Bros. planned as a launch title.
