Super Smash Bros will be released later this year for the Nintendo Switch console. It’s speculated this will be the fifth entry in the popular series so it won’t just be a port of the game that came out on Wii U back in 2014. With that being said, this means the game has open vacancies to add some famous guest characters.
The most popular anime on at the moment is Dragon Ball Super and its main character is none other than Goku. Funimation tweeted out last week that it wishes Nintendo adds Goku into Super Smash Bros. They said: “@NintendoAmerica Hey Nintendo, When’s our boy Goku going to join the fight? ? #NintendoDirect #SmashBrosSwitch“.
Not only did they tweet the message, but they also posted the following teaser image too. The only way Goku is playable on Nintendo Switch at the moment is in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. This is the only Dragon Ball game available on Switch since Dragon Ball FighterZ is only available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One currently.
Adding a guest character such as Goku in Super Smash Bros is doable. In the past, we’ve seen other third party video game characters in the franchise such as Cloud from FF VII and Snake from Metal Gear Solid just to name a few. There’s still no official release date for the new Switch game, but a 2018 date is expected.
