Smash Bros Switch Announced
We were expecting something simple and fun for today's Nintendo Direct. We got a lot of cool announcements, but we ALSO got the totally unexpected announcement of the long desired Super Smash Bros for Switch. At the very end, they had a teaser trailer for the game to announce that it was in development.
About the only thing we can say for sure is that it looks like Splatoon's Inklings will become fully playable characters with their ink mechanics intact. Also, the Breath of the Wild version of Link was shown, so there definitely changes to the existing characters. Does this mean a port with additional functionality like in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, or is this a new game entirely? We don't know at this point. But, I'm sure the speculation will go even wilder now than there's something to look forward to.
As usual, Krystal has historically been a popular request, especially among female character choices. However, I would advise against getting your hopes too high, in spite of the parody art I made for this post (based on Smashified Krystal artwork).
In health news, I am sometimes better, sometimes worse with recovery. However, I have some good news in that I'm quickly learning how to type and program with my voice instead of my hands. This will be instrumental in allowing me to continue working on the site and other things. In the meantime, please join our Discord (invite link), if you want to see ongoing Krystal news and discussion with other site visitors and Krystal fans.
First of all, God bless you and I hope and pray for a speedy recovery for you. Doing what you love can improve your mood to such an extent that it can actually help your recovery, so I certainly enjoy hearing that you’ve found a way around another of life’s irritating obstacles.
Second, we certainly don’t get this many opportunities in a single decade to try to get Krystal in a Smash Bros game, eh? I hope it’s an all-new game, at least so we can get another crack at it…
Yeah, I was really looking forward to this Nintendo Direct. The Smash announcement blew me away. That was probably the perfect birthday gift Nintendo could have given me (March 8th is my birthday, if case you were wondering). ;)
Hope you get better soon, man. As for Smash there is a part of me that the game will likely be a new Smash instead of a port. Honestly I think that they we move on and forget about Smash 4 since that game has come and gone. With the Link shown there is his Breath of the Wild version, what’s to say that for Fox for this next game the version we will see is his Starfox Zero design since that is the most recent one for him even though Zero came out 2 years ago which is still relatively recent?
i’m curious about this one, hopefully it’s not a wii u and 3ds version paste into one and have extra skins, if it really was, then it’s definitely not worth it.
congratulation on you recovery.
I was so excited starting with Luigi’s Mansion for 3DS. Then after Mario Tennis announcement, I thought it would be the end of Direct, but Nintendo had 12 minutes or so left to announce other stuff. I was prepared for the worst but it got better and better. Splatoon 3.0.0 is so hype for me. Playing as an Octoling. Then they TEASED us this one last Announcement that SPLAT me away! The Smash Bros. Man I nearly screamed my lungs out and my heart was pounding for almost an hour! I watched that teaser over and over again and I had goosebumps! I wonder if Fox will get an update too? Zero look maybe? Anyway, fingers crossed for Krystal (and Wolf if possible).
I would like to see both Wolf and Krystal make it in this time!
Wolf’s chances of returning seems pretty certain, it’s Krystal we’ll have to really help support to get her in!
I hope this installment won’t be a massive disappointment as the previous one. :(
Oh and I hope your recovery goes well Mr. Krystal!
Since we got Starfox Zero 2 years ago, I have a feeling that now is the time for Fox to get a new updated design and likely they’ll go with his appearance from Zero like what they are doing with Link using his BOTW look. As for Wolf since we just got Zero in which he made his appearance in that game and in Starfox 2(SNES Classic), something tells me that his chances coming back as a returning veteran are really good making him a relevant character once again. Also with the release of SF 2 on the SNES Classic, they can also throw in Miyu(with her palette swap to be that of Fay with the same movesets but different appearances). For Krystal, we have been wanting her for the last 10 years since Brawl and now would be the good time to bring her into the limelight to make her debut once and for all to please all of us at least. Even as of now she is still a popular choice to be playable for Smash.
Well, if Fox is probably gonna get an update in his design, my bet is that he’ll have his Zero jacket and gun holster. I bet the same can be said for Falco, except in his Smash Bros Brawl and SSB4 style with the color suit and scarf. Wolf, I have to imagine would be his Brawl design with a bit of a mixture of his Assault design since it was basically that in Smash 4 (what a big disappointing down grade for an anti-hero). Krystal, this needs to be the chance for her to be in the game. It’s been over 10 years since we demanded her to be in Smash.
I’m glad your geting better…kinda, but your wasteing your hype on smash you know what sakurais like he’ll egnore, lie and just put krystal in as a trophy.
Your better off geting hyped for the next starfox game or that voice typeing thing.
Kinda reminds me of steven hawking hes a geniuse an example to disabled people everywere that nothing can stop you from doing what you love.
@Mr. Krystal I know it’s not much delightful as it was before, but I’m pretty sure Super Smash Brothers for Nintendo Switch will get it right. And I also thought of something else; Why not have Krystal as a pre-order bonus character?
