Little did they know that the destined announcement was to happen on the closing of a Nintendo Direct event. While that's great for fans of the game, it's also good news for developers and fans of other games built using the same GameMaker Studio 2 platform. Nintendo has the opportunity to refine some of the rough edges while providing us with excellent value for money. First off, it is already reveling new characters, including the Inklings from Splatoon, and Breath of the Wild Link, as opposed to the usual Twilight Princess Link. Inklings, the human-squid hybrids that can transform to swim through pools of ink, have never been featured in a Super Smash Bros. game before. Fight your way through 80 "test facility" stages, escape from the subway, and unlock the ability to play as an octoling in multiplayer! It'll be available this summer for $19.99.
Another surprise announcement came in the form of PlayStation icon Crash Bandicoot, who'll be making a rare appearance on a Nintendo console when the Switch gets the N. Sane Trilogy on July 10. Just imagine telling that to squabbling N64 and PlayStation fanboys back in 1998!
More information about the release date - and a list of supported titles coming to Switch - will be revealed in due course. By tapping this amiibo, the popular "Praise the Sun" gesture can be used with reckless abandon from the start of the game.

However, the game's multi-player mode was the real draw.
From his blue tunic to the bow to his hairstyle, this will be the Link from BotW and that will likely mean he'll get some new attacks or variations to his moveset. And yes, it's sticking with that name. But if we're lucky, maybe we'll see a bit more of the game before a complete blow out hits us in June.
The month of July is a pretty big deal for the Switch. Plenty of gamers have been asking for this game on the Switch and it just seems like an absolutely flawless fit.
