    Tweet and account have been wiped.

    Looks like Bandai Namco is helping with development once again, and it seems to have a new rendering engine.


    He claims to work in Japan at Nintendo.

    I can get behind this but surely he would know what would happen with that tweet. Bit odd that it was nuked that fast.

    This seems to confirm the game is new, but doesn't confirm the engine is new. He could have developed the engine for use on Smash 4, but then left the company before the beginning of production on Smash Switch.

    He's listed as an Environment Programmer for Mario Odyssey. But it's the only game he's listed as working on.

    But even if it's fake, i think it's pretty obvious Smash Switch is a new game and not a port.
     
  12. I lean towards this thinking.
     
  13. Damn, hope he still has his job after that

    Finally proof of whether the game is new or not. Wonder how different the engine is going to be (Please make it faster)

    This is basically about the only information that we have gotten between the teaser trailer and E3 which is kind of sad.

    Hopefully he doesn't loses his job over this and also the engine manages to impress but over anything make the game feel fresh!

    I feel bad for him if he really does work at Nintendo. Probably shouldn’t have tweeted it though.

    If he left BN in August of 2016, that means Smash Switch has been in development for less than two years. Does anyone know how long the total dev cycle on Smash 4 was?

    I think people will be pleasantly surprised with the new Smash Bros games visuals because it’s one of the few WiiU games to run at 1080p native meaning there’s a lot of untapped power on Switch for everything from better character models to improved lighting and much more complex stages.

    Yes, Bandai Namco developed Smash 4 under the direction of Sakurai.

    Of course it's Bandai Namco. It will be pretty much the Wii U game with more stuff and a few touches.

    Right now he's being held in an interrogation room at Nintendo.

    FUNKY KONG: "Ahh OK, groovy dude. So you wanna play good monkey/bad monkey, huh?"

    TIAGO: "Wait, who's the bad monk—"
