Smash Bros. on Switch: Sequel or Remake? Scott's Thoughts

Along with many Super Smash Bros. enthusiasts, I assumed that a port was on its way to Nintendo Switch.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U felt fresh, recent, and was one of the main reasons to hang onto that console when considering an upgrade.

Now, as the launch of the portable-console hybrid grows more distant, I’m starting to reconsider my stance. Maybe Sakurai, Namco Bandai and co. are not tinkering away at a port, but instead are hard at work on the proper sequel.

It seems unthinkable; in many ways, Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U felt like the definitive edition of the series, with a wildly huge cast and surprisingly well-balanced gameplay.

But not so fast… those are 2014 titles. In 2018, a remaster might feel less appropriate than a straight-up sequel. Enough time has passed that a true follow-up is definitely on the table for discussion.

I’m honestly happy either way, but I feel like a port would have been released by now, with the launch of the system or especially with the final amiibo of the set.

We might actually be looking at a brand new title soon!

The Canceled Zelda Sequel: Wind Waker 2

Sometimes we just need to zip our lips and happily accept what Nintendo thinks is best for us!


Zelda fans, we blew it. After Nintendo released the original Wind Waker game for GameCube, the backlash about the artistic direction was so great that Nintendo not only changed the aesthetics for the next Zelda title, but completely scrapped a concept they were proud of. What we would have gotten instead of Twilight Princess would have been the sequel to Wind Waker. And that sounds pretty nice right about now, doesn’t it? Watch the video for the full scoop on why Nintendo shelved the idea and went in the complete opposite direction.
