This is not a drill. Super Smash Bros. is expected to come out for the Nintendo Switch later this year.

Nintendo held their Nintendo Direct presentation on Thursday where they unveiled new titles coming to the Switch and 3DS, and while much of what fans would see was shrouded in mystery, the video game company certainly had some tricks with the announcement of Super Smash Bros. featuring a video showing the Inklings from the Splatoon series. Check out the video above.

The clip includes a brief shot at the 47-second mark showing the silhouette of a number of characters in front of a fiery backdrop. Aside from a tight zoom in on Mario and Link, the rest of group is anyone’s guess.

How many Super Smash Bros. characters can you spot?

Nintendo: We got one last game for you today.
Fans: what is it.
Nintendo: Super Smash Bros, in 2018.
