One thing is for sure that Nintendo’s prime focus is set on Super Smash Bros for Switch. In the recently revealed Nintendo Plans for E3, the company acknowledged that among various other things, their prime focus is set on this game. Having said that, recently a rumor surfaced on the internet regarding this game which seems to suggest that we can expect the Ice Climbers, Simon Belmont and also Ridley to appear in the upcoming game for Nintendo’s latest platform.
The rumor originates from the same user, who stated that Retro Studio is working on Star Fox Grand Prix for the Nintendo Switch only this time he is back with the news regarding Super Smash Bros. The user goes by the name DasVergeben and according to his claim, the game Super Smash Bros might feature Ice Climbers, Simon Belmont, and Ridley. Since its a rumor, we would recommend that you take this with a grain of salt.
Talking about the authenticity of his own source, DasVergeben specifically reads;
“I know for sure and from one of my most credible and proven sources (the one who told me about Metroid Prime 4 being developed by Bandai Namco before anyone else said or knew anything about that) is that Ridley is a newcomer, the game is in-fact a sequel, but there will be assets being reused to some extent(s).”
Following that he said:
“From a different source that I have also known to get things right in the short time that I have known them, there will be the return of Ice Climbers and a new Konami rep…. Simon Belmont.
According to his sources, Ridley shall be revealed at E3. Be that as it may, Perhaps only E3 will be the better judge of these rumors than us. So let us stay put for the event and hope for the best.
