Nintendo Files Trademark on Super Smash Bros

Smash For Switch Coming Soon?

When it comes to trademarks, it could mean that a new game could be around the corner.  In the case of Nintendo, it can be a bit more difficult to decipher.  Japanese Nintendo noted a couple of trademarks by Nintendo recently.  These image trademarks include Amiibo, Legend of Zelda, Splatoon, Animal Crossing and Super Smash Bros.  While we have seen Switch games and one mobile game related with the games this year, we have received no word on anything related to Smash Bros since the Switch’s launch earlier this year.

A sign of things to come?

This is far from a confirmation for Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo Switch,  but some are wondering about the possibility this brings.  We have already seen cases of games that received a “Deluxe Port” from the Wii U such as Mario Kart 8 and Pokkén Tournament.  As such, there is a good chance that we could see “Super Smash Bros For Switch” or “Super Smash Bros Deluxe” that could add more stages and characters on top of the massive 58 character roster.

Nintendo’s Online Service Starting Soon

As the year begins to wind down, Nintendo’s paid online service will likely come into effect soon. At that time, it could help Nintendo to have a showcase of upcoming games that will use the service and have Super Smash Bros as the kicker to win people over. Whether if it is an enhanced port or a brand new entry in the long-running series, it would definitely grab people’s attention and give them a reason to get on the hype train if they haven’t already purchased a Switch.

How’s it going everyone, I’m Mike Sol and I am one of many contributing writers to Culture of Gaming. You can usually find me playing some of the latest games to come out, although I tend to avoid anything related to sports or strategy. I enjoy the big three and all the games on them but my main console is the Xbox One. I don’t have a specific preference in gaming, but any game that has fun action and beating up waves of enemies is usually my cup tea. If you ever want to game with me or want me to write about something of interest, feel free to hit me up. I also now have a personal blog where I go into deeper thoughts about things happening in the gaming world. Please come and check out Mad MAS Gaming here:
