Industry insider Emily Rogers, who is renowned for leaking information on all things Nintendo, has recently been discussing a Switch port of Super Smash Bros. It is worth noting that she is known for giving those who listen a warning to take rumors at face value, and anything said is subject to change.
Emily has mentioned a Smash port previously, stating that it was planned to be a year one release. We have heard very little since, though recently the topic of the port came up on a forum post, where she commented that a port isn’t far away.
The first post states:
“I don’t think Smash Bros will be a straight simple port. They will probably position this as the “Ultimate version of Smash Bros”. Anyways, we won’t have to wait too long to hear about it.”
Upon being asked about when, Emily replied:
“Nah, I’m just saying you’ll hear about it either before or by E3.”
Again, it has to be stressed that this is just a rumor, though it’s a pretty plausible one given that you can’t image Nintendo leaving Super Smash Bros off the new console. The same goes for other franchises such as Animal Crossing among many more, so there is bound to be more news on this soon.
