Yeah, NEW Smash games usually get the insane hype train- if a new game were to be announced AND released this year, if would give almost no time for that hype train to get moving.

If it's going to be their big holiday game, between now and E3 would give it plenty of time to be revealed and hyped up.  People have to remember that Brawl was originally suppose to come out at the end of 2007 and yet the Dojo first opened up on May 22nd of that year.  And when it first opened, the early updates were filled with filler like "You Must Recover" and recaps of everything we already knew from E3 2006.  It wasn't until about a month in did they finally reveal Zelda as the first returning veteran we hadn't seen yet, followed by Bowser.  It wasn't until August 1st, over 2 months after the site opened did we see Ike as the first newcomer that hadn't been shown at E3 2006.

So if they literally open a new site at E3, it'd give them plenty of time to start revealing returning veterans, stages, new stages, new characters, items, modes and music at a rate similar or even faster then Brawls Dojo originally did.

But Brawl was quasi-announced in 2005. Even if we don’t count that, Nintendo released the game’s first trailer at E3 2006 in which Final Smashes, a couple new stages, and five newcomers including the series’ first third party character were unveiled. There was plenty of hype for Brawl before the Dojo started. As far as sequels go, Melee is the outlier, having been released on the same year it was shown to the public.

We’re not getting a new Smash Bros.

If we do, I will punish myself by not buying it. Happy?

I just want people to keep talking themselves into the idea that a port is more likely to happen the more time passes.

No. You’ll have to buy eight.

The more time passes, sure. Rumor states a release later this year though. Here’s a crude over-simplification:

2018 = port
After 2018 = new game

I’ve yet to hear a compelling counterpoint to a port in 2018, just a lot of assumptions based on little to no evidence and hand waving away things that have already happened. For the record, I’d prefer a new game so I’d love to be wrong. However, this discussion isn’t about what we want; it’s about what we think will happen.

Yeah, and if I remember rightly the game was rushed out for the GameCube launch window, leaving it with something like eleven months of development time. I doubt Nintendo will be rushing out the next game.

Hope someone was able to rescue Mop's cat before she had the chance to eat it....

I mean I don't want to support eating a cat, but Smash Ultimate really has enough brand new features to be called a new game.

1) Many new characters
2) New Single player game
3) New Spirits System

So yes, an argument could be made that these are just revisions of old systems repackaged, but that repackaging counts as new content for a new game.

A healthy compromise would be to just accidentally lose your cat so you don't have to eat it.

Rumor: Xbox Game Pass to Switch

This got trampled by the people eating...felines conversation, but this is a crazy rumor, if true.  Would it be a limited offering of indies that can run competently on Switch?  Would it include some kind of streaming ability to try and push the larger Xbox exclusives like Sea of Thieves/Crackdown/Halo/Gears of War?  So many questions come to mind from this.

Pretty sure Switch is going to surpass Xbox One LTD sales in the next couple month globally, so Microsoft wants to stay relevant in the games world. I can see them supporting Switch for cloud streaming - they've basically got nothing to lose by supporting as many platforms as possible.

Rumor: Xbox Game Pass to Switch

This got trampled by the people eating...felines conversation,[. . . ]

Mostly Khusrenada's fault, but I don't blame him.  I'm actually impressed with how many wrong takes there were around that Smash rumor.

I think they would push the smaller indie titles initially and then work their way up to offering larger titles for cloud streaming.  I'm sure they have some games that could probably run well enough on Switch, which would gather interest and attract some early adopters.  Then they can slowly rev up as the tech improves.

I thought Micro$oft stopped revealing the sold numbers of XBONE a while ago, how can we be sure what they are?

She's just been looking for an excuse this whole time! She's just admitted to preparing for this moment all along. Pretending that it is something she'd never want to do but she knew exactly what she was doing when she made her declaration. Oh, the humanity cat-ity!
