Something tells me this won't get ported to the Switch. Wouldn't we have heard something by now?

@Nintendo_Ninja Not really, assuming it comes out after June the most sensible point to reveal it is E3. Also March-June is typical Nintendo quantity so releasing after June makes sense from their point of view, look at the first party schedule:

  • BotW (March 3rd)
  • 1-2-Switch (March 3rd)
  • MK8 Deluxe (April 28th)
  • ARMS (Most likely late May)

And, maybe, with a June release for Splatoon 2 (right between the corner at E3), a port can be announced at the Expo for an August/September release (still thinking about Bayonetta and Cloud Amiibos)

Well since we know that the Corrin amiibo is still on the way (thanks to a press release for Fire Emblem Echoes), and we still know that the Bayonetta amiibo is on the way (thanks to a blog post by Platinum Games, though granted that was 6 months ago), I'm willing to bet that there will be a Switch port for these amiibo (as well as Cloud) to launch alongside.

It just seems weird that they'd release these amiibo in 2017 (or 2018?) for a 2014 game. I'm not saying that won't happen, it just seems unlikely to me.

Smash 4 is yet another “great game, too bad it's on Wii U“ game, so it seems logical that they would want a “2nd attempt“ with a Switch port.

I hope they make it combined version of the Wii U and 3DS versions. All those stages into one version, as well as Smash Tour AND Smash Run... maybe even the trophies. And you thought Wii U and/or 3DS kept you busy.

I'm also curious to see if they re-add Ice Climbers due to the enhanced power. And any other new characters, of course...

Yeah, I expect a Deluxe version as well. Heck, I'd spend $60 all over again if it came with all the DLC characters, stages, moves, and all the differences between the Wii U and 3DS versions were all meshed together into one. Aaaaaaaaaaand there were new characters as well... I'm thinking the Inklings (they made it into MK8 Deluxe...) and Spring Man from ARMS. That'd be pretty amazing, actually.
@DarthNocturnal Pretty sure the "lack of power" excuse for the Ice Climbers was just a ruse.... and I'm never one to doubt the words of the higher-ups. At the end of the day, I think the real reason the IC weren't included was because there was no time to optimize their gameplay for the (relatively weak) 3DS.
Maybe they'll make it into the Deluxe version. I wouldn't care since I don't main them... but it'll be nice for those who want them.

@Vee_Flames

It was noticed that when playing with more then 4 people, certain stages had elements removed. And not just hazards, but even purely cosmetic parts of the background. Many of those cuts had to have been related to performance.

Now imagine 8 players as Ice Climber. You basically have 16 characters running around. Could it still run? Probably... but could it run at the target framerate? Maybe not.

I don't doubt that he would try to keep the rosters the same even if Wii U was (or is) capable, but it could very well be that BOTH platforms had limitations that got in the way of what the developers wanted to achieve.

As for why he didn't say that... Sakurai doesn't say a lot of things.

@DarthNocturnal Huh. You make a very good point about the 8-player Smash thing. Don't blame me... I rarely ever play 8-player Smash nowadays so I basically forgot about it (I think I should return to it, tho... it's certainly a lot of silly fun).
But yeah, 16 Ice Climbers would be a disaster! 8 is most likely fine, though... I mean, the GameCube and Wii did it. But 16? Even on the significantly more powerful Wii U? When we start to consider the complexities of certain stages, I'm having my doubts. I'm guessing some detail would have to get cut out in order to maintain the optimum, preferred performance.

Can you imagine watching 8 Nanas (and only the Nanas) going at a noticeably lower fps to keep the performance up?

That would be fun.

Yeah I don’t know either.

This is exactly what I'd want the Switch version to be. The 3DS version had some really cool stages that I unfortunately didn't really get to play on that much in multiplayer due to the Wii U version being the default go-to version with my friends whenever we play. (I literally have only one friend that's ever willing to play the 3DS version with me...) Some of those stages would also look excellent in HD (like Magicant and Rainbow Road), and this could also potentially lead to more music choices on these stages (possibly even some new remixes).

I think even if it just adds a few HD versions of 3DS stages (with new music tracks added to them) and all of the DLC content from the Wii U and 3DS versions, it would make for a good "Deluxe" version of the game.

Ugh… with alternate poses, they'd better be coming out with Smash Switch. I get that Nintendo doesn't want to prematurely announce it lest it cannibalises sales of the Wii U and/or 3DS versions, but I really, really hope that it is in the works and we aren't just anticipating it in vain. I've held off on buying the DLC in anticipation of it (I have the Mewtwo DLC and some of the early costume/level packs, but that's it).

Where is the best place to go to learn how to run smash bros. mods?

Am I allowed to ask such a thing here?

I think this smash brothers still has a lot of life left like I said before they should add more characters like captain n from 80 cartoon show or previous characters like wolf or snake

Doubt there are any plans to add any more DLC to the game. The Wii U is no longer a priority.

I'm currently trying to get this games, and as many games as I can really to make my Wii U purchase somewhat worth it. Super Mario 3D World has been a big disappointment for me.

Welp, I got the game, I'm enjoying it more than the 3DS version, despite a lack of adventure mode which bums me out. I'm glad that trophies are back. But the game is borderline unplayable with the gamepad, so now I have to buy a Pro controller....I've thrown a lot of money at this console and I'm starting to wish I had just gotten a Switch.

I've gotten much better with the gamepad. I just went through the hell of unlocking R.O.B.

I think I need to lie down....
