Nintendo is on top of the world right now. Its hybrid system Nintendo Switch is currently the fastest selling console in United States history, according to Nintendo. In hopes of feeling that wave going, the company announced 13 new games for the Switch coming in 2018, including fan favorite Super Smash Bros.

Switch owners have been holding on to hope that a new version of the popular fighting game would come to the console soon. Their prayers were answered when the announcement trailer appeared during the company’s Nintendo Direct presentation.

The trailer opens with the two characters from the popular game Splatoon in a head-to-head battle. The room goes dark and then is lit up by the Smash Bros.’ logo on fire. We don’t get a character list, but we at least know the two Splatoon characters Mario and Link will be in the game. The rest of the characters remain in the shadows, but you can assume Bowser, Toad, and other regulars are in tow. The game’s release date has not been confirmed.

The other titles announced for the Switch are South Park: The Fractured But Whole (April 24), Dark Souls: Remastered (May 25), Undertale (unknown), Little Nightmares: Complete Edition (May 18), Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition (May 18), Mario Tennis Aces (June 22), Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy (July 10), Octopath Traveler (July 13), Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker (July 13), Splatoon 2: Octo Expansion (Summer 2018), Okami HD (Summer 2018), Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes (2018).

Start saving up those coins; Nintendo is in its bag this year. Let’s also not forget about the Labo, which is set to hit shelves in April. You can check out the entire Nintendo Direct presentation below.
