Nintendo Direct: Super Smash Bros. announced for Nintendo Switch

9 March 2018 – by Jack Taylor

A new Super Smash Bros. game has been announced for release on Nintendo Switch this year, with its first teaser introducing Splatoon's Inklings.

At the end of the latest Nintendo Direct presentation, a teaser trailer featuring Inkling Girl and Inkling Boy from the original Splatoon introduced the new Super Smash Bros. to the world, though beyond a 2018 release date, nothing further was announced for the title.

It will be the fifth major iteration of the series, following Super Smash Bros. on the Nintendo 64, Super Smash Bros. Melee on the GameCube, Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii, and the fourth iteration on Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.
