Nintendo Switch game list recently was boosted at the recent Super Smash Bros. tournament. The Nintendo Switch fans were waiting for news about game releases at the Super Smash Bros. Tournament but things turned out differently.
Fans live streamed CEO Dreamland and were expecting the release of Super Smash Bros. Melee on Nintendo Switch console, faced a harsh reality. The video turned out to be a hoax and was just an advert. The advert was meant to tell the fans that Brawlhalla will be appearing at the Shine 2017 event in august.
This hoax was spread just a few days after the Nintendo revealed the release dates of some Amiibo such as Corrin from Fire Emblem and Bayonetta and Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII. The Amiibo are set to release on 21st July 2017 and are going to be available only on Nintendo Wii U and 3DS.
It would all make sense if the Amiibo were to be released alongside Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo Switch. But that isn’t going to happen or it seems impossible for now.
Earlier, Nintendo gave hints about Super Smash Bros. port for Nintendo Switch. While talking to Katie Linendoll, Nintendo stated that it wants all of its most popular titles released on Nintendo Switch.
According to Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo America President,
“Smash is obviously one of our best-selling franchises.
What we say is that the philosophy that Nintendo has from a development standpoint is that for every platform, we want to have at least one [each] of our classic franchises.
There’s gonna be one great Super Mario experience, there’s gonna be great Zelda experience, so you can expect, you can anticipate at some point in the future, who knows when that all of our franchises will be addressed. We know that the fans love these games, love this content, so stay tuned.”
Nintendo Switch and Super Smash Bros. fans have previously speculated that it would be a Mario Kart 8 type launch and will be landing with a DLC Pack. But according to the new developments, that seems a little bit different now.
The July 21st Amiibo release date is almost a month from the E3. It’s possible that at E3 gaming expo a Super Smash Bros. port for Nintendo Switch will be announced. At this point, it’s just a speculation but Nintendo has a history of surprising the fans. So, it seems that the new Amiibo release is actually paving the way for a Super Smash Bros. port for the Nintendo Switch.
Hopefully, that will be the time when Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch will be announced. Nintendo has yet to confirm if that the time or not. If it all turns out to be true, it’ll not be less than a treat for all the fans.
