Nintendo dropped a bombshell today by announcing Super Smash Bros. for the Switch; let's take a closer look at the silhouettes from the trailer

Is your main here? Did you Play 64 or Brawl?

Nintendo decided they wanted to burn down the internet today by announcing Super Smash Bros. for the Switch which seems thematically accurate given the fiery logo shown off in this initial trailer.

Details are scarce at the moment (and probably will remain that way until E3 this summer), but we do have a 2018 release window for the game, a logo, and a bunch of characters briefly shown.

The Inklings from Splatoon are the stars of this surprise announcement though their inclusion in a new Smash Bros. title is no surprise itself given the quickly growing popularity of the new franchise.

We get a closer look at two other Smash/ Nintendo mainstays with the silhouettes of Mario and Link. Link's appearance is notable here as he appears to be modeled after his Breath of the Wild design with his bow and no classic cap to be found. Meanwhile, Mario does not seem to be sporting Cappy from Mario Oddyssey (at least not here as his hat obviously does not have eyes).

From what we can gather from blown up cast of silhouettes, the original 12 characters from the Nintendo 64 game (except Jigglypuff as far as we can tell) seem to appear alongside the likes of Marth, Wario and Pit.

Check it out for yourself in the gallery below, and note that these are our speculations. Though some seem pretty obvious, others are up for debate.
