How do friend groups establish leaders in 2018? Is the most social media-popular friend considered to be the dominant compadre? Is it the friend with the most money or the nicest clothes? There really hasn’t been an effective way of determining friend-rankings in our modern age, and that’s been detrimental to group dynamics. Fret no more, though. Nintendo has the solution: Super Smash Bros.
In the late 1990’s and early 2000’s, friends fell into a natural order based on Super Smash Bros. rankings, and thanks to the Nintendo Switch, 2018 will soon be a haven for accurate friend rankings once more. The first teaser was released yesterday, and while no game footage is shown, we know that some original characters are returning for battle. As noted in the beginning of the teaser, there will also be new characters to choose from: the Inklings from Splatoon.
While there’s no official title or release date yet, it’s been confirmed that the game will be available sometime this year. Likely closer to Christmas if I had to guess, but hey, I’ve been wrong before.
Gather your friends and kiss the life you’ve grown accustomed to goodbye. It’s time to battle.
