Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

The NX rumor mill continues to churn out more speculation as to the nature of Nintendo’s mysterious game platform. This latest tip comes from analyst and consultant Dr. Sherman Toto, who revealed through a series of tweets the soon to be revealed game system will have support from day one on Nintendo’s current third-party supporters, Bandai Namco. The Japanese gaming giant is allegedly working on several NX games, including Super Smash Bros., which will apparently be launching alongside the NX.

While this is a complete rumor with unknown sources, NX support from Bandai Namco would not unprecedented. The company launched Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on Wii U, and the relationship fostered on that project led the two Japanese gaming giants to work on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, not to mention the upcoming Pokken TournamentSuper Smash Bros. on NX, whether completely new or a port of the previous game, doesn’t seem like much of a stretch. With the NX expected to be revealed sometime this year, expect more rumors and speculation to follow.

    Looking forward to Pokken Tournament and fleshing out the terrible Wii U library. Not ready for a fake console launch hype train. The world of journalism slammed Nintendo for not embracing smartphones and mobile, that a dedicated gaming handheld didn’t have a spot in their murse. Now that Nintendo is attempting it… media silence. The same journalist s are now force feeding everyone unprecedented rumors about a new nintendo console and how it’s a great idea? Yeah, give your competitors a two year head start and alienate your core audience with a dead-in-the-water console that sold less the dreamcast, has less titles for it, and was on the market the same time. In fact history proves that multiple consoles in one generation is a disaster. SNK, Sega, Atari… END THIS MEDIA WAR ON NINTENDO! I expect this from polygon and forbes but not operationrainfall.

    Ah the rumored NX. Unless it blows away the competition in power, pricepoint and content, likely the last Nintendo console we’ll ever see.
