But as everyone who watched the show will know, nothing was revealed for the Nintendo Switch’s top fighting game.
The first character for the Smash Bros Fighters Pass – Joker from Persona 5 – was revealed at the Game Awards event last year.
And this gave rise to plenty of speculation that the TGAs would be the perfect place to learn more about Nintendo’s plans.
One fan did ask TGAs Geoff Keighley why Smash Bros wasn’t featured, with the creator of the show adding a bit of context to how things are scheduled.
“That’s not really a question I can answer, I don’t make the games or set up the schedule of announcements,” Keighley revealed.
“Just because something happened last year doesn’t mean it’s happening this year. It would have been cool for sure!”
So which characters, for now, can we rule out as being part of Super Smash Bros Ultimate Challenger Pack 5?
