'Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch' listed as an answer to trivia question on Danish Nintendo website

If you're like me, then you were probably shocked to not hear any news about a Super Smash Bros. title for the Nintendo Switch during Nintendo's E3 presentation. It seemed like it would be a logical announcement for the new console, but there was no such announcement.

Still, many have pointed out that it could be viewed by Nintendo as being more beneficial to wait on revealing this title so games like Splatoon 2 and Arms can have their time to shine. There is certainly a possibility that this reveal could cannibalize the success of these games.

While we've gotten some hints here and there, the words "Super Smash Bros. for [the] Nintendo Switch" are a series of words that have never been officially said by Nintendo to the public -- until now. Given, it's not quite the meshing of the words that we were looking for...

Apparently on a Danish Nintendo website, there's a bit of a contest going on that will allow winning participants to go to Lego Land (from what I've gathered). There is a question that, based on a Google translation, is asking participants which of the three choices was released on July 21st on the Nintendo Switch.

The very first choice is Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo Switch, a title that Nintendo has made no official mention of. The other two titles, Pokkén Tournament DX and Splatoon 2, are titles that are confirmed titles for Nintendo's latest console.

It's very odd, to say the least. Is this an unintentional hint of things to come? I have included a screenshot of the question's choices below.

Nothing is confirmed yet, but it certainly gives hope for those that want to see this become a reality. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on this in the comments.
