Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Super Smash Bros coming to Switch in 2018

Not sure if anyone has said it yet, mainly because I can't be bothered looking through all the replies... but I REALLY want Travis Touchdown in this Smash game, it'd make sense too with a new NMH game coming out (Albeit not looking half as good as the others, not a fan of the direction they're taking it)

And besides, whether it's based more heavily off the Brawl or Wii U logo is pretty irrelevant regardless. 

Your whole point about the logo was that it's the same logo as the Wii U one, so I don't understand why suddenly it's irrelevant.

 

And indeed, an altered logo doesn't make it a new game. But when the developper clearly stated that he's working on the game everyday but can't say too much about it yet, even its name, it does make it a new game. And also Nintendo never teased a port like that, regardless of the game. All Wii U ports were clearly shown as ports, so there is absolutely no reason to change that for one specific game.

The entire logo point was initially made in response to someone saying that it was a new logo and therefore confirmed a new game. My response was that it wasn't an entirely new logo, just a modified version of the Wii U one, and shouldn't be taken as a significant indicator as such. I don't think I've ever argued that the logo suggests a port, because plenty of sequels have reused wordmarks from previous games.

I disagree with the second point; I think it's highly possible that an updated version of Smash 4 with a sizable amount of new content could very well be held under wraps for that reason, especially if it's going to be Nintendo's biggest hitter this year while we wait for Pokemon and Metroid Prime 4.

It was introduced just like they did with Yoshi and Kirby during E3 2017, some footages, game title and 2018. And both Yoshi and Kirby are new games and not ports. Absolutely nothing suggests that it is a port. It's may be your guess, but all the evidence show the opposite.

If new, it's gonna be delayed.

If Smash is Nintendos big title for Oct/Nov. I don't see that happening. 

It just feels too early for Smash, maybe is more like a Smash 4.5 like Splatoon 2, who knows.



I know... my English sucks.

Except Kirby and Yoshi both had gameplay shown and Nintendo was very quick to state that both were new games when asked. Since we're on the subject of how Nintendo has handled things in the past, I don't think we've ever had an announcement this vague before, where not only is there no title or gameplay shown, but also no one is willing to commit to what the game is exactly. I don't really see this as an indication one way or the other; it's so far removed from anything that I can think of.

Beyond that, I've gone over my reasons for believing it's a port/upgraded edition in other posts. Even if it is possible it's a quick turnaround time for a Smash game and announcing it this close to release is an odd choice for marketing given how the past two Smash titles have approached things and been very successful. It strikes me as very un-Smash like given recent history, hence why I'm inclined to believe it's a port for the time being. That's the "absolutely nothing" that suggests it to me.

Fair enough. You have all the rights to belive it's a port and looking at what you've said since the beginning, it could be either a port or a new game, no one can say if it's proven to be a new game or a port, I agree with that.

I get the feeling its gonna be like Splatoon 2 which is pretty much the first one but just different enough which is fine by me but still kinda feels hollow for us who grabbed all the games on Wii U.

Sequels can feel that way, be it metroid prime 2,3 or smash bros melee or pokemon x or call of duty something.

Every smash has been quite similar to the previous one. They look better and have more characters and maybe some new modes. So its going to be similar no matter what and thats fine by me. Now with the online thing being a thing more than with wii or wii u they can and propably will release some content after launch, be it free or payid (as they already did with wii u, but even more this time). System akin to splatoon could even work.

yeah I know just seems to feel a little too much the same with Nintendo stuff I think I just been growing out of there games with time nothing they do seems to get me pumped anymore though that Captain Toad game I'm so on that haha. 
I really hope the online works well never really got to test my skill against others in smash.
Also the fact people are arguing over this being a port or not really does show how there game releases have been so far.



You guys are fighting over nothing. The fact that it just says "Super Smash Bros" means that it is actually a port of the N64 game! That's why it has no subtitle.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

Oh and a singelplayer in the likeness of The Subspace Emissary would be nice.



I will say, introducing the Inklings like this for Smash is a fitting way to do it. It sparks memories of their introduction trailer at E3 2014 and, in a sense, allows Mario and Link, Nintnedo’s two old reliables, to induct them into their group as the Next Generation of fighters in Smash, while creating new memes. Considering the doubts/disadvantages the original Splatoon had against it, whether it be having relatively low content to start at full price, gyro controls, no voice chat, unusual leveling and ranking system, and being under a console with low sales, Splatoon emerged as a hot newIP, especially in Japan.

It now has holographic concerts for the Squid Sisters and Off the Hook, food/merchandise, art books, a manga, an anime, etc. under its belt. It is challenging IPs such as Dragon Quest and Monster Hunter for Japanese dominance (outside of Pokémon, of course) and the sequel just became the first 2 million seller on home consoles in Japan since Wii Party in 2010. Really cool seeing Splatoon evolve in such a short amount of time.
