That is interesting. But this is also from Smash 4, and here it does include the "Original game" notice:

So I'm not sure what to make of that.

Thread...kinda debunked after seeing this.

"Original Game" refers to Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64. So basically to the branding of the IP itself.

Yeah, that would appear to be the case. I'm just unsure why they some times omit that line.

Which trailer is that from?

Since it mentions Square Enix, it should be from one of the later character reveal trailers. It matches the one at the end of Cloud's.

Or you could easily just point out the different font for the Smash logo they used.

I disagree, it's a new Smash.

New generation = New Smash

Exactly! Just like:

New generation = new Mario Ka- wait...

New generation = new Pokken To- nope...

New generation = new Donkey Kong Co- that's not right... 

New generation = new Captain To- uhh...

I give up

They made melee in two years. The reason the Wii U and 3ds took a while is because he was making other games after brawl that weren’t smash. They did keep making dlc for the last game up until 2016 but that took less resources to do. This could be a port but seeing the man who made this series and worked on every game is working on this makes me think this is probably smash 5. More than 4.5 for switch.



Idk why people keep saying it is not possible to be a totally new Smash because of development time, referencing old entries.

Let's go back and remember the development time of the other Smashs:


- Super Smash Bros: 1998-1999

- Super Smash Bros Melee: 13 months: (http://uk.ign.com/articles/2010/12/09/super-smash-bros-creator-melee-the-sharpest)

- Super Smash Bros Brawl: October 2005-December 2007 (https://web.archive.org/web/20061116161044/http://www.smashbros.com/en/main.html)

- Super Smash Bros WiiU/3DS: March 2012-September 2014 (http://andriasang.com/comya5/)


None of the entries in the frachise took more than 2 years and a few months of development time, so the Switch Smash being a new entry fits the schedule, especially considering it's less complicated than the Wiiu/3DS because it's only in one console. The reason why the gap between the last entry and the new one is shorter than the others is probably because WiiU had the shortest life of any Nintendo home consoles (Nintendo already said that each home console - generation - gets 1 new Smash).

Also, let's remember Nintendo president changed and the studios were restructured. Last year, I remember very few people believing Nintendo would release Odyssey and Xenoblade 2 in 2017, even websites were predicting delays because of development time. There were no delays and both games got critical praise.

I don't care if port or new.. I just want a single player campaign like in brawl.



Intel Core i7 8700K | 32 GB DDR 4 PC 3200 | ROG STRIX Z370-F Gaming | RTX 3090 FE| Asus PG27UQ gaming on 3840 x 2160 @120 Hz GSYNC HDR| HTC Vive Pro :3

Reached PC master race level.

there appears to be two different copyrights, one for the game and one for the characters. but in the Inkling reveal trailer, the only characters that were explicitly shown were the Inklings, Mario, and Link; all of which are Nintendo properties, so the additional copyright info would have been redundant. at E3 we will likely see a full blown trailer with a whole cast of characters shown with a character copyright similar to Smash 4 trailers.

im making the call, its a new game



While i think you're reading too much into the copyright information i think it's fairly certain that this is going to be somewhere in between a strait port and a new game. At least that's how Nintendo will market the title. I think it's going to be a port with improved online play, new stages, new characters, maybe even some a new single player mode like subspace emissary. Basically the ultimate Smash Bros game.
