    1. a brand new game as how the 3ds version and the same yet different to the Wiiu one. I feel the switch will do the same. Use all characters stages and mechanics but have exclusive content.

  1. I’m just hyped to be seeing the new Smash Bros game. And what I really want to know is if they changed Link now that he’s BOTW Link, if Mega Man will return and if they will bring back Nana and Popo (Ice Climbers).
