It's been floating around the world of Nintendo news for quite some time that Nintendo might be porting Super Smash Bros. for Wii U to their upcoming console, the Nintendo Switch, and the now-infamous reporter Laura Kate Dale recently came forward to say that it is true.
This was one of the talking points on the 82nd episode of Nintendo Week, our Nintendo-themed podcast here at Gamnesia. Check out the discussion video above for our full thoughts, or keep reading below for a brief, brief summary.
Yeah, yeah, I know this discussion happened a while ago, but the show has been on break for the winter holidays and without a new episode in this week leading up to the official Switch reveal this Thursday, we decided to come back to YouTube with clips that provoke interesting thoughts about what we might see on Thursday.
None of us are remotely surprised, and in fact we all think it's most certainly happening. The big question in our minds is whether the port will include any new content, which gets a big giant "maybe." It'd be hard to believe it wouldn't, but you know what Alex says: "Nintendo gonna Nintendo."
If it does, the most likely scenario we see is veteran fighters like Wolf, Ice Climbers, and maybe even more returning from their respective games. We also think it's possible the Inklings may make an entrance to celebrate the recent success of Splatoon and to leverage it even further for its release on Nintendo Switch. Of course there are questions abound regarding new and returning stages, including ones from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, but time will tell how it all plays out.
