The Nintendo Switch will, in fact, have a ported version of Super Smash Bros for Wii U according to Laura Kate Dale from LetsPlayVideoGames. These rumors started with a series of tweets last night from LetsPlayVideoGames’ Laura Dale, which culminated in a full article. Here is what she had to say about this development:
“According to a pair of sources who we have used in the past when reporting on Switch news, we have learned that the Bayonetta and Cloud Amiibo, both previously slated for 2016 release, are now being held back to launch alongside an upcoming Switch port of Smash Bros.
According to our information, the port will not be a launch day release for the Switch, but is targetting a release in the first six months after the Switch hits shelves. We have not heard any confirmation that the port will contain any new content, but we have been told it will contain all DLC from the Wii U version of the game.”
Porting, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the term, is: The process through which software is adapted to be used in a platform not part of the original design. Hopefully making the two games seemingly compatible.
Many players today still use their favorite Gamecube controller to play Smash, but sadly there was no information provided if the port over to the Switch would or would not include the use of these classic controllers.
While there are still quite a few questions to be answered about this, it is good to see that familiar and popular titles will likely be releasing on the Nintendo Switch. As new information and rumors come out, we will be here to provide you with the information we can.
