Is this a port of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, or a new game? Toe more versions for the Nintendo 3DS and the ill-fated Wii U were released in 2014 with the former being the first version for a handheld console.

Perhaps the most surprising announcement was South Park: The Fractured But Whole coming to the portable home console too, which should be out on April 24th.

"From Dusk Till Casa Bonita" will cost $12 and will also be released on March 20 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 (PS4) and PC, meaning the new class will likely be available on the same date.
