Watch teaser trailer as Super Smash Bros heads for Nintendo Switch

Super Smash Bros. is coming to Switch this year

During the Nintendo Direct stream we also learned that Undertale ("the friendly RPG where nobody has to die" and one of our favorites from 2015) will come to the Switch "eventually". Nevertheless, most, if not all of the aforementioned figures from the Big N's huge stable of iconic IPs are surely a lock, as many fans would likely boycott the game in some capacity for their exclusion.

Since its release, the game has spawned a number of sequels including Super Smash Bros. In fact it seems that in the trailer above, there will be songs from Super Mario Odyssey and Splatoon 2, further tying the game with some of Nintendo's more recent and successful launches. My Nintendo members now have the option to use some of the points they've accumulated to purchase certain Switch games from Nintendo's digital store. You can expect many of these games to be out later this year.

The first Super Smash Bros. game was released in 1999 and was, well, a bit of a smash.

These are not confirmed and not all silhouettes can be made out, but here are our guesses as to who each character is! Let us know in the comments section below. The presentation is known for its influx of upcoming video game releases; many of them being major announcements.

Okami HD will be available as a digital download for Nintendo Switch this summer. It's different from the Wii U/3DS game logo, and if you look back across all the past Smash games you'll notice the logo design is different each time. There's no question that the hybrid portable console is capable of some impressive things, but can Nintendo wring that much out of it this early on in its life cycle?

If you're in the mood for a raunchy, Mature-rated RPG, Ubisoft's South Park: The Fractured But Whole is set to release on April 24th for the Nintendo Switch.
