Super Smash Bros. is a beloved childhood franchise for many.  

The first installment of this game came out in 1999 for the Nintendo 64.  Then in 2001 a new Super Smash Bros. Melee was released for the GameCube, followed by Super Smash Bros. Brawl in 2008. And finally Super Smash Bros for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U was released in 2014. In addition, the new game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo switch was recently released on December 7, 2018. The game itself is a crossover fighter with characters from Nintendo franchises and other gaming companies such as sonic from Sega.

The new game is looking to increase the already massive roster of characters to a total of 76 players. The franchise’s previous release did not make as much due to the unpopularity of the Wii U.   But with the new blockbuster console, the Nintendo Switch Sales are expected to be one of the franchise’s highest. There is significant fan support for the games launch given that the Nintendo directs involving the game have been watched over 7.5 million times.  

There are some students on campus that are rather excited for the game.  Paulo Campos said,¨I love Smash Bros. and can’t wait to play the new one.¨

Another gamer, Felix Sanchez said,¨This game was big part of my childhood, and I’m so happy it’s survived to today.¨

This game has a very large fan base spanning almost 20 years. The excitement for this game’s release is undeniable.
