Over at Game Informer, Nintendoof America’s Bill Trinen and localization manager Nate Bihldorff provided some more insight into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which got an extensive showcase at E3 2018 and will be arriving later this year. In an interview with Game Informer, one of the biggest clarifications that Trinen provided was in stating that Nintendo and the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai, consider this “a new game” in the series and not just a “definitive edition” or “port” of the series’ previous iterations. A large part of that, as Trinen explained, comes from the fact that Ultimate are the ways that it is making “core change to the core mechanics,” such as speed, movement, animation, and more, and players as a result will have to “re-learn every character” compared to previous iterations in the series. In addition to those details regarding the game’s development, … [Read more...] about Nintendo Says Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo has confirmed a new Super Smash Bros. game is coming to Switch in 2018, and judging by a teaser trailer released at the end of a Nintendo Direct, it looks like we'll have some *alert noise* NEW CHALLENGERS APPROACHING; both the Inklings from Splatoon and Link (as he appears in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild) show up, which would be new additions to the cast.

After all, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS use the Twilight Princess version, and that particular version of Link is more than a decade old at this point - I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo just wanted to update his look for a ported version of what's also known as "Super Smash Bros. 4" that has just a few extra bells and whistles (kind of like the approach it took with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe). If that's the case, the Inklings are just one more little nice thing for those willing to buy what would essentially be the same game a third time. On the other hand... what if it's … [Read more...] about Super Smash Bros. is coming to Switch, and it’s bringing Inklings and BotW Link
