Virtually no information other than a 2018 release window

Nintendo has announced that Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Nintendo Switch this year, bringing the popular fighting game franchise to Nintendo’s newest console.

The teaser came at the end of the company’s Nintendo Direct presentation today. There is virtually no information on the upcoming release other than the 2018 release window, but it seems that popular characters like Mario and Link will once again be returning to the franchise, along with newcomers from Splatoon (making their first appearance as playable characters in a Smash Bros. game).

While Nintendo hasn’t provided too many details, the Switch version of the game will be the fifth title in the series, which has seen a version released on every Nintendo home console since the original Super Smash Bros. was released on the Nintendo 64 in 1999.
