Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS auto-tagged by YouTube for this week's Nintendo Direct

Make of it what you will. I don't even know what to make of it. I know that on YouTube, sometimes game footage gets an auto-tag, and also tags are generated from what the creator types in. This tag is coming from somewhere. Now if it's an accident or a leftover tag from a previous direct, that I don't know. I guess we can speculate for the next couple of days! Thanks to FangztheWolf for the heads up!

Imagine if they were announce the full game title as "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U for Nintendo Switch" haha

nah, would be something cool like Super Smash Bros from Wii U now for Switch

I'd say it's getting close to time to announcing the port. Probably release early next year. Maybe they'll do another Smash Ballot promo between now and then

With how many characters there are, I wouldn't be surprised an indie character does find the way to get in. Probably Shovel Knight.

Might as well make it Shovel Knight AND Shantae, since they both appear everywhere now. :P

At the very least they'll finish Ice Climbers and pop them back in. Beyond that, I have no idea. If there's not a Splatoon character... There will definitely be a Splatoon stage that has a turf war going on... Or at least that's my conservative guess for Smash for Switch

Don't forget the wabbids. Because apparently Mario will need another stage or two. :p

Absolutely. If they wait too long to simply port the game from WiiU, people will be expecting more of a new game. And they've probably had to time this one carefully, so as not to fill Switch's launch with too many WiiU games.

The same thing happened when Sony announced its Smash Bros. copy. I wouldn't get my hype up yet.

Can't see them announcing Smash Bros 4 Deluxe before Jan '18 [and moreover likely E3 '18 for that A/W release].

Mark my words. No Smash on this direct

Bleh, that doesn't mean anything.

Auto-tag on Youtube is overly piloted by bot strings and as such, its share of accuracy for game-detection can only go to a certain extent. I've seen multiple times the wrong game installment being addressed on a video about former/later releases of the same series, as well as music games playing music from other games, and those games being credited by the auto-tag instead of the actual rhythm game being played.

TL;DR - AUTO-TAG DOESN'T WORK YET, don't get your hopes too high.
