As we head into E3 2018, the big focus for Nintendo's presentation is the upcoming Super Smash Bros title for Switch. Nintendo's brawler and the LA Convention Centre go together as well as Final Destination and No Items. We here at Nintendo Village thought it would be interesting to take a look at the history of the franchise at the event, and what it could mean for this year’s expo.
Switch’s first year was absolutely stellar, but year 2 so far hasn’t been quite as mind blowing, with only middle tier releases and a bunch of ports of questionable value. Nintendo needs new stuff at E3 to pick up Switch’s momentum throughout 2018.

It's now been one year since Nintendo dropped the Switch on us and we started playing Zelda on the toilet.
