The list of rumors regarding Nintendo’s enigmatic NX system just keeps on growing; this time we have speculation that the popular cross-over Super Smash Bros. will be making its way to the system as a launch game.

The rumor comes courtesy of Serkan Toto, CEO of Japanese game consultant agency Kantan Games Ltd. Check out his tweets:

While this might seem baseless at first glance, he has had some success predicting rumors in the past. For example, just a few months ago he accurately described much of what was announced in Nintendo’s October 28th mobile-focused business meeting a day in advance.

So what could this Super Smash Bros. game be? Given development essentially only just wrapped up on the Wii U and 3DS titles, and DLC is still in the works, it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine a port of the Wii U version bundled with all of the add-on content.

We will just have to wait and see what shape this rumored new Super Smash Bros. takes, and what other games Namco Bandai may be cooking up for the system.
