Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé confirmed the news during Nintendo's E3 2018 presentation Tuesday morning. We still don't know what new Smash looks like, how many characters it'll feature, or even if it's a port of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS updated for the Nintendo Switch.

This all appears to emphasize Nintendo's burgeoning esports aspirations, with a list of ridiculous details clearly meant for a specific hardcore audience. There also seems to be a little influence from 1-2 Switch in the form of players sharing information outside of the game to win events.

Nintendo did announce other games, we swear.
