Smash Brothers: Basically Confirmed For The Switch
A game that many know from over the years, and has brought Nintendo years of success, is Smash Brothers. It’s a title that has one new version made for every new system the company has had since the N64. That said, it was hardly surprising to hear that Nintendo of America’s president Reggie Fils-Aime ‘suggested’ during an interview that there would be a new title of the game coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Reggie told Katie Linendoll, during a facebook livestream interview, that “Smash is obviously one of our best-selling franchises….the philosophy that Nintendo has from a development standpoint is that for every platform, we want to have at least one [each] of our classic franchises.” He went on to state that, “There’s gonna be one great Super Mario experience, there’s gonna be great Zelda experience, so you can expect, you can anticipate at some point in the future, who knows when, that all of our franchises will be addressed. We know that the fans love these games, love this content, so stay tuned”. This seems to more or less just confirm that Nintendo will be coming forward with the fan favourite at some point in the future.
The admission is hardly huge, as many would expect the title. The real wonder on this gamers mind is when Nintendo will start coming up with ‘new’ material. That isn’t to say that I won’t pick up a Smash Brothers game should it drop, but rather, how long does Nintendo plan to rest on the success of old games as oppose to creating new successful franchises. Even as a huge Nintendo fan, I feel that as of late they have let down my expectations and I can only hope that they will restore my faith with some new blood in the water in the immediate future.
Let us know in the comments whether or not you’ll be picking up a Smash Brothers title should it drop, and whether you feel the same way I do about Nintendo’s gaming lineup.
