In a recent interview with Nintendo of America's Reggie Fils-Aime, he reportedly teased fans again with the possibility of a "Super Smash Bros." game for the Nintendo Switch. It was noted during his surprise Facebook Live talk with Katie Linendoll that the executive avoided a direct confirmation of the game's development. Instead, he hinted that it might be possible in the future.

During the interview, Fils-Aime explained the company's approach when it is related to game development angle. It appears that the gaming firm plans to develop "at least [one release] of our classic franchises" on "every platform" currently supported, reports Game Rant. The executive also pointed out that certain titles like "Super Mario" and "Zelda" are some examples of their beloved series that got released for the new hybrid console.

Reports also confirm that Reggie Fils-Aime asked fans to at least anticipate a "Super Smash Bros." game for the Nintendo Switch in the future. He even added something about "Animal Crossing", which also reveals that it is a "key franchise" for the Nintendo. Although Fils-Aime said that there was "nothing to announce today," he acknowledged that "fans love these games, this content" so players should "stay tuned".

Players have reportedly observed that the recent interview was the second time the Nintendo Executive teased a Switch version of the game. A few months ago, sources have reported that he also teased gamers about the same thing. Gamenguide previously reported that Fils-Aime talked about the absence of more launch games for the new console. He explained that the company plans to have a continuous release of game titles in the next coming months.

Fans are most likely disappointed with Reggie Fils-Aime's decision to withhold more information about "Super Smash Bros." for the Nintendo Switch, but it has been speculated that Nintendo is very interested to join the eSports industry with their latest game system. Moreover, a video trailer for the console showcased "Splatoon" being played on professional tournament setting.
