Super Smash Brothers for the Switch with all included DLC from both the Wii U and the 3DS versions. Sounds like a dream, doesn’t it? All stages from both games, and maybe some new characters could be added to the roster (Ice Climbers or maybe even Wolf). This is my biggest wish to Nintendo. Honestly, it would be foolish NOT to do something along these lines. This is an instant GOLD MINE for Nintendo. It makes perfect sense to me, and I truly believe that we will hear an announcement on some similar scale at Nintendo’s E3 direct. I have my reasons to believe this too, which I will state below.

Let’s go over the facts shall we. First of all, Super Smash Brothers has been one of Nintendo’s best-selling games of all time. For every single iteration, Super Smash Brothers was always considered to be one of the most sold games for their consoles. Not only that, but the latest iteration for the Wii u is, at least in my opinion, the best in the series due to its extremely polished gameplay and huge and entertaining cast of characters. It would be a complete waste for Nintendo NOT to port it to the Switch! I love my Wii U, but let’s be real, it was a pitiful thing to call a console. It suffered for a lot of reasons I won’t go into, but if this game was brought to the Switch, I believe Nintendo would make a massive profit.

My final reason to believe that Super Smash Brothers for the Switch will happen is none other than the game that was just released, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. This game is quite literally a copy and paste of Mario Kart 8 but with more polish, new game modes, maps, and characters. This is my strongest reason to believe that Super Smash Brothers for the Switch will happen. Why wouldn’t SSB get the same treatment as Mario Kart 8? It did almost as well in terms of sales!

Anyway, I hope I lifted your spirits a little bit. I’m sure a LOT of us are disappointed that Super Smash Brothers is not available for the Nintendo Switch YET. Do you guys feel the same as I do? Do you think I’m crazy? Let me know in the comments below!

The Nintendo Switch – Switching Generations

Author: Blake Biehle

As many of you Nintendo fans and gamers alike are aware, Nintendo’s next inventive console, named the Switch, is just around the corner. This extremely unique and intriguing machine has been all the buzz for months now after showing its first preview trailer in October last year.

As of a little over a week ago, Nintendo had their official Switch presentation. Within this presentation, the Switch was exposed inside and out. They talked about the control scheme of the console, all of its features, its $300 price tag, release date of March 3rd, and many games that will be coming out for the console over the next year.

To be honest I’m eager to dive into Nintendo’s next generation. It’s about time the era of the Wii and Wii U come to a close. Finally Nintendo can open new doors to substantial 3rd party support and find a more appealing control scheme for gamers. One of the biggest flaws of the Wii U was its lack of support from 3rd parties. There just weren’t enough games to flock more gamers to the system. Now that Nintendo has a powerful console and a gimmick interesting enough to persuade 3rd parties and consumers alike, the Switch’s future is filled with promise.

Not only that, but the Nintendo Switch also has a decent lineup of games along the way. We have The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, one of Nintendo’s best launch titles for any of their systems, Arms, which in my opinion looks like crazy competitive goodness, Splatoon 2 in the summer, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on April 28th , and Super Mario Odyssey, finally a new 3D open world Mario game! These are just a few of the many promising games the Switch has to offer over the next year.

As you can probably tell, I’m absolutely ecstatic for the Nintendo Switch’s release. Are any of you guys excited for the Switch? If so what games are you most hyped for? Leave a comment below!
