Welcome to the “Next Super Smash Bros. Discussion Official Thread”, and also our temporary Super Smash Bros. Community Thread. I know that I'm not the only one that would love to speculate about upcoming Smash Bros, so that's why I want to make a thread for most smash fans who would like to discuss such a topic. A special part about this thread is that it is also an opportunity to co-exist with the Super Smash Bros. community in general. Basically, we can also discuss aspects of Super Smash Bros, Sakurai, etc. Please keep in mind that this thread is just a temporary Super Smash Bros Community thread, so there wouldn't be one until after Smash NX get released.
The purposes of this thread?
It's a place for Smash fans to:
- Discuss the upcoming Smash Bros., via Smash NX.
- Get together and discuss the Super Smash Bros. franchise
- Discuss elements of the franchise, such as visual designs, character rosters, stage rosters, etc.
- Discuss about Sakurai, as well as his developer & game design philosophy
- Discuss Smash Bros. articles and Sakurai's articles
- To keep Smash NX discussions out of NX threads, and keep Smash NX discussion in a dedicated thread much as possible. I know a few people were annoyed with NX threads being derailed by Smash Bros. discussions.
- and more.
What we know so far:
Let me emphasize that what we already know is basically rumors from reliable source(s). We don't have any idea on what to expect from Sakurai, Nintendo and Smash NX, other than the game is planned to be one of launch titles for upcoming console, NX.
The initial tweets regarding Smash NX came from one of the most reliable sources, known as Dr. Serkan Toto. He has been correct regarding numerous Nintendo rumors as far as I know. He broke the initial rumor on January 28, 2016.
Another source is Emily Rogers. I'm not sure if she heard the rumor from her own source, or just repeated what she heard from Dr. Toto. Hopefully we will get some kind of clarification on that.
Smash Bros. Franchise
I would get into discussions about the Smash Bros. franchise right now, but I think it would be better saved for Official Community Thread further down the line. All I will do right now for you is provid important links to sources and threads for information.
It's the best site for very reliable informations related to Smash Bros, Sakurai, etc. If you want to find certain information, then this best place to start. It's our Smash Bible.
