Nintendo's teaser video confirms Super Smash Bros is coming to the Switch

All things considered, we won't know for sure which characters Nintendo has in mind for Super Smash Bros. on Switch until the company decides to begin eking out even more information about the title in the days and weeks to come.

The first Super Smash Bros. game was released in 1999 and was, well, a bit of a smash.

This is just one of the new games announced for Nintendo's systems (hey, the 3DS is still being supported for now).

The Nintendo Switch was launched in March a year ago, the Japanese firm's first home console since 2012.

If you're a member of My Nintendo, you'll earn Gold points automatically for purchasing Switch, 3DS, and Wii U games from the Eshop. The game was a huge hit previous year when it was exclusively released for the PS4. Look at how they treated RE Rev 1&2 on the Switch, and look at how they're releasing MM Legacy Collections where you have to download the other half of the collection rather than it being on the same cartridge.

Both of these could be indications that we're looking at a new game in the Super Smash Bros series.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will bust out of Sonyland with a Nintendo Switch version on July 10.

Okami HD is coming to Nintendo Switch this winter. A nice little game to play on the go, or to play on the big screen while an audience sits nearby and watches you play; I think Tarsier did a fantastic job bringing the dark and nightmarish world of The Maw to life in Little Nightmares. Unfortunately no release date was given.

So far the Switch has had its fair share of the latter - Mario Kart 8's "Deluxe" version added in all previous DLC, some new characters and minor gameplay tweaks, so there's a chance this could be the same approach. Releases June 22, but there will be a pre-launch tournament if you can't wait that long.

But as is always the question with each new Smash game ... who else will be included?

I nearly always chose to be Jigglypuff, just to be different and to annoy my cousins by using the puffy character's signature attack, a shrill song that offended the ears as much as it took down enemies. The bad news is that no other details were given (like whether or not it's going to be a sequel or a deluxe version or a port or 3DS compatible...) except that it will release sometime this year.
