The launch titles for the #Nintendo Switch were anchored around the latest offering in the Zelda games, which saw a huge success. Nintendo is hell-bent on keeping its name up on the pedestal so it’s safe to say that at this point, owners of the brand new console would see better updates in the near future, possibly, a new “#Super Smash Bros.” game.

While a sequel is yet to formally confirmed, Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime did not rule out the possibility. Tech journalist Katie Linendoll interviewed the executive via Facebook in which he stated that a releasing a new title for the game fits accordingly into the company’s plans.

Nintendo wants classics for every platform

Smash being one of Nintendo’s best-selling games, Fils-Aime the idea of developing a new title isn’t far-fetched, as one of the company’s aims is to include at least of its classics in each platform, including the Nintendo Switch. “We know that the fans love these games, love this content, so stay tuned,” the exec said. Fils-Aime added that all franchises Nintendo has published would be addressed, and everyone who owns the Switch will have a great Zelda and Super Mario experience.

Smash titles had always been consistent

The roster of games within the world of the popular fighting game had always been unfaltering since its conception in 1999 for the Nintendo 64. The crazy multiplayer game proved a massive hit among Nintendo fans because of the many characters pulled out from different titles such as “Metal Gear Solid” and “Fire Emblem.” The game even has the Wii Fit Trainer in it, which Conan O’Brien described as an “anemic, eyeless, yoga instructor” in his hit “Clueless Gamer” remotes.

To reiterate, a new “Super Smash Bros.” technically still is unconfirmed, but the possibility of it materializing is extremely likely and would spike the Nintendo Switch’s sales.

Already, “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” contributed to the brand new console’s strong sales during week one from its launch. That said, a brand new addition would be a welcome change indeed. #video games
