Super Smash Bros Nintendo Switch Port May Be Coming Soon

A Super Smash Bros Nintendo Switch port may be coming to the console when it releases, according to a hint dropped during an interview by Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Amie. While there’s no confirmation yet, and nothing was announced last week, Smash Bros players may be able to play the game on the Switch soon.

Fils-Amie said in the interview that the Nintendo Switch has a robust multiplayer setup, hence the subscription model like Playstation Plus and Xbox Live that’s needed to keep it going, and mentioned games like Splatoon, Mario Kart, and Super Smash Bros as examples of games where the local multiplayer would be particularly important.

Considering that Splatoon is getting a sequel on the Switch, and Mario Kart is getting a “premium” version, a Smash Bros Nintendo Switch port may also be in the works.

Nintendo got a fair bit of criticism following the reveal of the multiplayer model that they would be using for the console, which will start out being free for several months before switching (heh) over to a paid subscription model.

This will also be affecting the virtual console games that players will be getting for free for a month; after that month is up, players will have to buy the VC games to keep playing them.

If there isn’t a Super Smash Bros Nintendo Switch port, it would be breaking with a sort of “tradition” that has happened for every Nintendo console, with every Nintendo console from the original Nintendo 64 to now getting a Smash Brothers game.

Either way, we’ll have to wait until Nintendo releases more information about the possibility of an enhanced Nintendo Switch port of Super Smash Bros, but in the meantime hopefully all of the other games that are going to be releasing on the Switch will be enough to keep players busy.
