    Coming back to this is insane, with context to the new mode and the fact that you can hear the main theme of the game in this trailer!! Makes this even more awesome

    Something that really bugs me is how much inkling girl can shoot/throw bombs and her inktank still being decently full

    I wish this was just a port of the Wii U one, because now I have to get a Switch for TWO games that I REALLY want. Damn you, Nintendo, and your fantastic games.

    That scene looks too hellish

    Why even bother hiding the characters in silhouettes when it's obvious who they are?

  • Phantom Breakers

    Considering breath of the wild link is visible, this leaves me to believe it’s a BRAND NEW title. Can’t wait for this!

  • Pixel King
    Pixel King Year ago

    If you guys can’t find any news articles or if your blind and deaf, this is NOT a port. Smash Bros. God, aka Sakuri(don’t know how to spell) had been privately working on the game, meaning 1. It’s a new game and 2. Nintendo and Hal could actually pull off a 2018 release like promised by the trailer.

    This is the opposite of that Valve card game reveal.
    Boy does it feel great

  • MaxTheWaddleDee
    MaxTheWaddleDee Year ago

    I think it will be a new game because Link doesn't has his Twilight Princess Look, rather he has his Breath Of the Wild Look.
    also, I guess SSB4 DLC Characters will be unlockable characters now and I think one of DLC Characters I want in 2019 to be revealed is probably Chun-Li, Not my favourite, but I wanna just see everyone hyped about it. I think it is worth the wait.

    Yo, the choir, the darkness and flames, the grim tone and that odd sound near the end (someone slow it down or sped it up, shift the pitch to find something); I think not only will there be a big story, but I think Dark Souls and its new playable rep (lets hope its Solair) will feature heavily in it.

  • logbeatsasuke

    I hope that players can at least tweak how emphasized the lighting effects are. They where in the way for me, particularly when the camera zoomed out.
    Oh and Nintendo - please make Ganondorf his _own_ character with interesting magic abilities. He could use a sword too.

    What a stupid edgelord way to announce a very NOT serious game...

    • mikerms12
      mikerms12 11 months ago +1

      Matthew Pipes I never said it was going to BE edgy. I said it was stupid they made the trailer edgy

    • Jalen Pipes
      Jalen Pipes 11 months ago

      mikerms12 You're right! Smash has never been like that...just because they put a fire smash logo in the background and made the characters dark looking, doesn't mean it's gonna be edgy.

    • mikerms12
      mikerms12 11 months ago

      Matthew Pipes Smash Bros has never been a dark edgy game.... So what do you think...?

    • Jalen Pipes
      Jalen Pipes 11 months ago

      mikerms12 So they should've done the smash announcement with Sunshine and Rainbows type of vibe??

  • Arin Lewis
    Arin Lewis Year ago +2

    Everyone is hyped for this and I agree with them but if it’s releasing this year, HOW LONG HAS THIS BEEN IN DEVELOPMENT?! If this is really a new game and it has to be if Link has his Breath of the Wild outfit, how is it coming out this year when it took Sakurai 6 YEARS to make Sm4sh?

    • Arin Lewis
      Arin Lewis Year ago +1

      So apparently Mr Sakurai was working on this in secret I guess since Sm4sh came out. HOW DID NO ONE EVER MANAGE TO GET THIS LEAKED?!

  • hey it's me
    hey it's me Year ago +3

    Damn i remember when the villager got a mail from smash as his invitation.the inlkings had the most badass invitation ever!

  • Scott Stamp
    Scott Stamp Year ago +2

    This isn't a port, for those who don't know. Why would there be a teaser if it was a port? The logo is completely different and it's called Super Smash bros and not super smash bros for the switch. This is definitely a new game.

    This trailer is perfect, alone the switch in music with it being made official that the inklings are joining Smash. It‘s so epic and the way they show Mario and link it seems like „It‘s time you join the family“. It‘s so well done.

    I can already see the splashdown being an air recovery move, the splat bomb being a B move, and the ink jet being the Final Smash.

    Random Konong Year ago +2

    Actually rumors suggest that this Smash bros game has been in development before we ever knew about project NX (2014). Also, Hal did not make Smash 4, Bandai Namco did. So this could very well have started development in 2012 alongside Smash 4. Bandai Namco are too busy with MP4. Along with the orchestra and Title Text, this could very well be a new game.

    Disappointing I wanted to hear about the new Pokemon game.

    • Nahoule Deb
      Nahoule Deb Year ago

      Cobra King What i said, the studio behind Pokemon doesnt want to tease the game before a Pokemon Direct.
      And a direct with too big games is not good for the communication, too much and you killed exclusivity.
      This direct its for Smash wait for Pokemon.

    • Cobra King
      Cobra King Year ago

      Who cares... they should just announce it asap and it better actually innovate

    • Nahoule Deb

      Cobra King Game Freank announce the Pokemon News on Pokemon Direct, not on the Nintendo Directs, amateur...
