Yesterday’s Nintendo Direct provided a lot of Switch announcements, like, just to name a few, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Okami HD, Dark Souls amiibo, Super Smash Bros., Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker and Undertale.

First of all, a Super Smash Bros. teaser was posted as part of the Direct, showing recognizable faces like Mario, Link, and the Inklings from Splatoon, the first new entry in the roster. It is not clear at this point whether this is a port from the Wii U or a completely different game, however the series debuts on Switch in 2018.
