Nintendo Direct: Is Super Smash Bros. FINALLY about to be announced for Nintendo Switch?

Nintendo has announced it will be hosting a Nintendo Direct livestream this evening.

The videogames showcase has been confirmed to focus on some new games, such as the Nintendo Switch’s upcoming Mario entry, Super Mario Odyssey.

The Direct is expected to go live at 11pm UK time, (which is Midnight CEST).

“Tune in at 11pm (UK time) on Wednesday 13th September for nearly 45 minutes of information mainly focused on what’s heading to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS family systems over the next few months, including new details about Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch,” a message from Nintendo teases.

“You can watch at Nintendo UK’s official Nintendo Direct website, or on Nintendo UK’s YouTube channel.”

Twitter user Nibel notes that the original post on the Japanese website for the event featured a tag for Super Smash Bros. – a game that released three years ago.

Whether this is an indication that a new version of the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch remains to be seen.

It also happens to have been three years to the day since the game was released on Nintendo 3DS – whether this is coincidence or not will be unveiled later.

The Nintendo Switch is so popular, players have been finding it hard to guarantee themselves stock when they’ve been searching for a new console in recent months.

According to Stock Informer GAME, HMV, Argos, Tesco and even Nintendo’s own online store currently have, or had stock in the last few days.

Nintendo’s swanky new Switch console has been selling brilliantly across the globe – closing in rapidly on its 10 million sales target.

During the most recent three-month earnings report the gaming brand has revealed healthy sales since its launch back in March.

It’s also doing well in physical and digital game sales too, with over 8.14m titles like Splatoon 2 and The Legend Zelda: Breath of the Wild flying off the shop shelves.

A large number of game sales came from the release of classic racer Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sales, which was the biggest-selling title of the quarter with 3.54m units worldwide.

Fighting game ARMS has also done really well selling 1.18m units worldwide, with Nintendo saying the new title is “off to a good start.”

So far 83% of Switch owners have a copy of Zelda, and 75% of Switch owners have bought a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Previously Nintendo had said they would be accelerating production of the Switch to meet the huge demand for the hybrid console.

Hopefully, the Switch’s ongoing stock problems won’t impact the success of other games due to launch this year: Pokken tournament DX, Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles still to come later in 2017.

Even then it doesn’t look like the Nintendo Switch will have any intention of slowing down beyond this year.

In their latest earnings report, Nintendo has already outlined when a number of big name games will be released.

Kirby and Yoshi for the Nintendo Switch will all be out next year. While the upcoming Pokemon game for the Switch could also arrive as early as next year. It’s listed as having a release date in “2018 or later”.

However, Metroid Prime 4 no longer has this timeframe for a release. Instead, the Metroid Prime 4 release date is simply listed as TBA.
