The upcoming Smash Bros game was revealed during Nintendo's Direct presentation on Thursday. My Nintendo members now have the option to use some of the points they've accumulated to purchase certain Switch games from Nintendo's digital store. But the company confirmed in a virtual press conference yesterday (March 8) that Super Smash Bros. will arrive this year, though it did not specify a release date. Nintendo has the opportunity to refine some of the rough edges while providing us with excellent value for money.
This being the Switch, though, the game will be portable - which is awesome news for those seeking a solid fighting title to play on the fly, and with friends. The surprise: You'll be able to drum along to songs from Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Odyssey, including "Jump Up, Super Star". The DLC expansion will be sold for $19.99 starting this summer, though you can pre-purchase before then to get the Octo Headgear and Octo Clothes for your inkling.
That wasn't the big news, though. Just imagine telling that to squabbling N64 and PlayStation fanboys back in 1998! This is the fourth tennis game I know of out this year following AO Tennis, Full Ace Tennis Sim and Tennis World Tour on other platforms. Created by HAL Laboratory, Super Smash Bros series have only appeared on Nintendo consoles. And yes, it's sticking with that name. The game launches for the Switch on June 22.More news: Delhi High Court grants Karti protection from arrest

I'm not too fussed about South Park, but I am glad that Little Nightmares is making its way to the Switch. As an added bonus, the Switch version of the game will feature an exclusive pacu mask that you can unlock by tapping a Pac-Man Amiibo to your Switch!
