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.
