Nintendo’s latest Direct yielded an exciting announcement: Super Smash Bros. is officially coming to Nintendo Switch. And that’s not all; the game is coming in 2018. Naturally, this has us pretty excited, and we’re already speculating which characters we want to be on the game’s roster. While characters who have been in past entries, like Ice Climbers and Star Wolf, are obvious choices for us, we’re also eager to see characters from other Nintendo franchises and third-party games make appearances. Here are the 20 characters we want to see the most in Super Smash Bros. on Switch.
As of yet, we don’t know if this an updated version of Super Smash Bros. Wii U or a brand-new game. If it is a port, it could follow the model of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. There are plenty of other Wii U titles that deserve a second chance on Switch as well–you can see some of the ones we want most here–but Smash Bros. is undoubtedly the most obvious candidate. Nintendo has remained ambiguous about what form this game will take.
