  1. Theoretically? If it happens yes. I don’t see 3DS limitations on that fancy Switch video.

    If people are interested I’ll just leave these here.

    Ice Climbers

    Those are all options I believe are on the table. Why Banjo? Because Phil Spencer is friends with Reggie and I doubt they haven’t at least talked about this.

  2. I do think the Ice Climbers would return in some form. I really didn’t like the 8-player Smash because that mode really made me lose sight of my character, and it really hurt my eyes because of that. I really don’t think the 8-player Smash was that successful imo.

    But what about everybody here? Did you think 8-player Smash was a great success or failure?

    1. I consider it Smash 4’s greatest addition to the series. Playing earlier games with 5-6 people it was always a bit of a bummer that you needed to swap out players every match and couldn’t just all play at the same time.

      As someone who mainly plays Smash for local multiplayer 5-8 player support was a pretty big deal for me. Removing it from future installments would be criminal.
