I see a Smash Bros Switch Port likely, and people, including myself want some new stuff. But you know what I want aside from characters, stages, or modes? 

Assuming the DLC from WiiU/3DS is built into the game, I want custom moves for all the DLC characters. There would be no more excuse to have custom moves for the non-DLC characters but not giving the previous DLC characters custom moves, especially when they wouldn't be DLC anymore in a Smash 4 Switch.

I would love to see what custom moves they would be able to give to the DLC characters. With Nintendo releasing Mario Kart 8: Deluxe, they would have to be stupid not to release a Smash 4: Deluxe edition. Being that myself and many others skipped out on the Wii U generation, I can see a lot of the Wii U titles being remade or ported over for the Switch considering their lackluster sales.

Exactly! While I don't see every hit Wii U game being ported over (I'm actually one of the few who thinks Super Mario Maker won't receive a port, although it would be great if it did), I do see Smash definitely getting a Switch port. And assuming it would be like MK8 Deluxe, having all of the DLC now included, they would have to have customs for the former DLC characters.

Honestly - Nintendo has almost nothing to lose by porting over most all of their successful titles from the Wii U over to the Switch. Does the Switch have touch screen capability, by the way? I could see that being a factor in whether or not titles such as Mario Maker receiving ports. 

If Nintendo added all of the DLC content for MK8 into the Deluxe edition, there should be no reason why they couldn't go above and beyond for a Switch port of Smash 4. Honestly - they should go all out as much as they can. The Wii U definitely damaged some of Nintendo's reputation over the last generation, and people still are weary on getting a Switch. The more they offer, the better - even if it's older content.

Yes Switch does indeed have touch screen capability, it is only usable when the Switch is in Handheld mode, so while it is technically possible to have Mario Maker on the Switch, I just feel like it won't happen. They already put it on the 3DS in addition to the Wii U, and while the Switch would work, I feel like they may leave it with the 3DS and Wii U. But those are just my own thoughts. I wouldn't mind being wrong though and having it released on the Switch as well. 

That is also very true. Most people are expecting at least one new character in addition on a Smash Port, though I feel like they could add at least one more mode to truly make the game the best in the series. Smash 4 was a great game, and they characters were all great, but I did have a problem that there wasn't any Single Player mode in the same vein of Melee's Adventure mode or Brawl's Subspace Emissary. They had Master and Crazy Orders, Classic, All Star, and the Multiplayer/Single Player Smash Tour, but the problem for me was that all of these modes were essentially just normal Smash Bros. 3DS's Smash Tour is what I wanted in the Wii U version where it isn't all traditional Smash Bros on a stage but being able to move around on a large map. Honestly, if they put a Smash Run-like mode in a Switch port that would allow for single player, local multiplayer, and even online multiplayer, I would be satisfied, maybe even more so than any new character could.

Ah, I got'cha. I'm glad to see Nintendo hasn't abandoned the touch screen capability - honestly, I can't picture another handheld system by Nintendo that doesn't incorporate some sort of unique screen functionality (dual screen, touch screen, etc.). Perhaps Nintendo won't re-release Mario Maker to the Switch, but maybe it'd be more likely for them to create a sequel. I'm not quite sure what all Nintendo could do to improve upon the formula, but perhaps they could engineer the title to be more suited for the Switch's control schemes.  

If they do end up releasing another version of Smash 4, I really hope that they spice up the Classic and Adventure modes to the game. I'm not expecting another Subspace Emissary mode (though that'd be awesome if they did that), but a remixed version of Melee's adventure mode would be super cool - especially considering something like that hasn't been done since Melee's release. Imagine all the cool level designs you could create for just Mario, Zelda, Kirby and Metroid with all of the new titles that have released since that time, not to mention characters like Pit, Sonic, Cloud, and the 40 or so other characters that were never in Melee could have their own stages/segments. 

Speaking of Melee, I hope that they would improve upon Classic mode to make it less...stale. Smash 64 had a linear classic mode, which was fine because it was literally the first installment. Melee's really spiced things up, with randomizing characters, metal battles, giant smashes, break the targets (come on, we need custom target stages again), and so on. Brawl didn't do anything for classic mode, but since it had the Emissary that was forgivable. Smash 4...really just kept the linear format. We need something new to keep us engaged, and whether that be implemented into Classic mode, a new Adventure mode, or some new mode in general (perhaps a more glorified Smash Run even) - that'd be incentive enough to buy the game again.

Wow I'm sorry I haven't replied to this one! I have a lot of long replies that I still have to reply to in my inbox! 

But considering the Switch does have touch screen functionality, I guess I could see a sequel to Mario Maker down the Road. Maybe with Super Mario Land graphics? I mean the game could work on Switch, it would just have to have the creation mode be exclusive to the Handheld mode, or have the easier mode be tablet mode, but have a different method of creation on the TV using a standard controller. If they did have it come out on Switch, I would come to believe they would bundle in a Switch Stylus in it to make it easier to create courses and not dirty up the Switch's screen.

Yeah I am honestly wanting a better adventure mode in another Smash title more than any character. I would looooove to see what they would come up with. The director has stated that because the cutscenes from Brawl's Subspace Emissary were all leaked before the game was released, he didn't want to do a mode like that with cutscenes again. So with Smash 4, he did cutscenes but with the character reveals, which already were supposed to be revealed prior to the games release! But yeah I don't need another SE. An Adventure mode would be great!

Yessss please the Classic Mode sucked in Smash 4! My biggest problem with Smash Wii U was most of the game was just standard Smash matches. There was no adventure mode with a large map to fight enemies in or travel around. There was no Target Smash mode built into Classic Mode! Even the extra modes, Master and Crazy Orders, they were still all Smash Matches. Sure they had a few different rulesets every so often, but it was still just Smash matches. I would love to see a better Classic Mode. Honestly, it could be the exact same format of Melee's and I would enjoy it. Maybe though instead of the Snag the Trophies game it could be a 30 second version of Trophy Rush! And then there would be actual Target Smash stages and a Race to the Finish or even something else!

Haha, you're fine! I understand, I've had my fair share of comments I had neglected to respond to in the past. 

They could easily make a Deluxe Edition of Mario Maker, just by adding more new enemies, new (old) power-ups, and more custom mechanics and concepts that would add to the creation experience. I could see a Switch Stylus being an accompanied accessory for a title like that (hell, they did it with Mario Kart Wii with the Wii Wheel). 

Agreed - S.E. was a cool experience, but all I need is another rendition of Adventure Mode to be satisfied. Modes, in general, need to be given better treatment. I'd say Smash 4 has reached sort of pinnacle of how the series should feel in terms of gameplay, now we need to refine the modes like Classic, Adventure, maybe even a Story mode, Break the Targets, Trophy Rush, Race to the Finish.

Specifically in regard to Break the Targets (and Board the Platforms, if we wanna get retro), I understand that with so many characters in the series now, we might have to generalize the custom elements of the stages (although Break the Targets in Brawl was just so bland). Maybe keep modes like these with generic stages based around the series - have a Mushroom Kingdom stage for Mario characters, a Halberd Stage for Kirby Characters, and so forth. It'd be so much better than what we've been getting recently.

That just reminds me. I don't think it would be as helpful in Mario Maker, but I would love to see some new joycon designs for certain games with different control schemes. You've probably seen some fake mock-ups online. I'd love to see some. The one that I think would be best would be a Gamecube-style Joycon. Honestly it could be completely like the original Switch Joycon but one thing: Pressure L and R buttons. it would be pretty necessary for Gamecube Virtual Console if they ever decided to do it. I know Gamecube games that utilized it could be programmed to use  single press L and R buttons, but it wouldn't be the same. It allows for more precise actions.

But yeah flesh out the modes and Smash 4 is basically perfect. And yeah I do really like that idea where it's themed toward character themes, a lot actually. I was thinking that too. Doing it for 58 characters is... a lot. If I counted right, its 28 different franchises. But honestly I wouldn't mind if they reused assets from their respective stages to make the process quicker. Kind of like Game and Watch's stage in Melee. Like the Pikmin Stage could literally be most of Garden of Hope's background and assets just reworked into a good stage. Or Town and City's background for the Villager's stage.
