Basically, Nintendo has been going all out over the past year to make up for the disappointment of the Wii U. The only thing that was missing from the collection was an updated Super Smash Bros. And today it looks like company director Shigeru Miyamoto has finally answered our prayers.
According to industry insider Emily Rogers, Nintendo is planning on bringing the game to Switch. Sharing the news via Restera, the trustworthy source claimed that the game will be released later this year. She says:
"I can only confirm two things:
1. A Smash Bros title will be announced and released for Switch later this year.
2. They added brand new content and re-worked some of the existing Wii U/3DS content."
For the moment we're not sure how much of the game will be new content – it could just be a largely improved version like Mario Kart for Switch. And it's worth remembering that Nintendo hasn't actually confirmed the release yet.
All the same, we're psyched at the prospect of getting back into training with Kirby, Pikachu, Lucario, Samus and the rest of the gang.
