In just half an hour, the Nintendo Direct event packed in an insane amount of news and announcements, so naturally we’ve sifted through the event to find the 5 biggest headlines or talking points. The game comes with new features that allow users to switch between Mario and Luigi and allow players to take control of Bowser.
It’s all very foreboding, but then the game is about Nintendo’s cutesy characters beating the crap out of each other.
Okay, so I’ve never played Splatoon.
For now, though, we’re going to treat this like an entirely new Smash Bros. game and assume that Nintendo will continue the good work they did with Smash Bros Wii U by finding a way to advance this timeless fighting series yet again.
Among those successful games was Smash Bros. and Splatoon.
Another new title is the Dillon’s Dead Heat Breakers, a tower defence game.
We were already aware of the game Super Smash Bros. coming through because, at the recent Nintendo Direct, a lot of announcements were made in which they revealed the Switch version of the game Super Smash Bros. It’s been four years since the last Super Smash Bros. was released, and a sequel has been long overdue. Most notable here is the close up we get of Link, who appears to be Link from Breath of the Wild.
Yet most tournaments in the game tend to be run by fans and the community without much help from Nintendo.
A 3DS Version?- Before Smash 4 was released on the WiiU, a 3DS version of the game dropped over a month prior, and sold a boatload of copies by, essentially, offering early access to the WiiU version.
The Switch has caught on in a way the Wii U never did, and it’s an incredibly fun time to be a Nintendo fan, because they know exactly what they’re doing with teases like this.
While Mario Tennis Aces did get given a sizeable platform, revealing all we’d come to know from the leak, it was another title that stole the show. Inklings, the human-squid hybrids that can transform to swim through pools of ink, have never been featured in a Super Smash Bros. game before.
Nintendo didn’t give much information about the upcoming title, however.
