Here is what I think might be added to Smash Bros for Switch, assuming it's a new game and not a WiiU port.

Characters
Inkling Boy and Inkling Girl - I think highly likely as they are in the announcement trailer.
Breath of the Wild Link - I think this will be the standard Link, replacing the TP look for Link. But as a character, it'll play basucally the same.
Spring Boy and/or Ribbon Girl - I think one of both of these two might make the cut. Sure Twintelle is more popular but she's not the face of ARMS like the other two are.
Ice Climbers - If this is Switch exclusive and not on 3DS also then I think Ice Climbers will return.
Rex - Quite possibly might replace Shulk on the roster.
Pyra/Mythra - If Rex doesn't make the cut then a dual character Pyra/Mythra might be there instead. It'll work the same way Zelda/Shiek did as a 2 in one character.
Funky Kong or Dixie Kong - Not likely at all but it might just die in with the Tropical Freeze remake
Dark Souls man - It's coming to Switch and getting an amiibo. Not very likely but not an imposibility either.
Crash Bandicoot - quite possible to advertise the trilogy port.
Sofia 3 - The vehicle used in the Blaster Master games. This is my unlikely prediction. The game did sell really well on Switch and it's a cult classic on the NES.

Skins/Costumes
Wedding Peach/Bowser/Mario - I think they will be a given to cross advertise Mario Odyssey.
Samus Returns - Samus in suit will get a skin to avertise Samus Returns

Stages
New Donk City - To advertise Mario Odyssey
Inkopolis - To advertise Splatoon 2
The Great Plateau - To advertise Breath of the Wild
Dark Souls - I don't know the game well, but he's in as a character, he'll get a stage too.
Crash Bandicoot - I don't know these games well either but if he's in the game he'll get a stage as well.
Gormott - Really any location from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 could be there. I think it's a low chance but it's a posibility.

I don't really have any predictions, just wishes.

I want all 4 champions. Thats extremely wishful thinking, I know, but still. I also want to see Alm and Celica in there. Since we already know BotW Link is in, I don't have to include him in my wishes because thats already a wish that's come true. I do want some BotW stages though, such as Hyrule Castle and a stage that takes you to each of the Divine Beasts. I'd love that. Since we're getting BotW Link, I hope we get BotW Zelda as well. And I hope their movesets get reworked to reflect these changes.

yo legit, when I saw "A Fire Emblem 16 character" my mind misinterpreted that as "all 16 fire emblem characters"
also I wouldn't mind seeing rex in the game, but I'd be over the moon if pyra/mythra made it in w/ her ascend form as a final smash

I'd like to see Simon Belmont as a guest Character this time round. Smash bros has done alot of iconic 3rd party characters from the good old days, it would be great to give us some good old Castlevania love. It would be cool to keep the other 3rd Parties like Megaman and Pac-Man, but won't be dissapointed if they don't make the cut.

I'm hoping BotW Link is a new fighter and isn't a replacement for Link because this Link doesn't represent the series as a whole, just BotW. To have the best of both worlds, they should have two versions of Link: the Classic Link we all know and love from past Zelda/Smash bros games and BotW Link who has a completely different moveset inspired by the game he's from.

I reckon Alm or Celica will be newcomers in the Fire Emblem lineup. I also hope Chrom makes it in this time, I feel his appearence in Fire Emblem Warriors might be the inspiration to make his moveset more than a "plain old swordsman".

I haven't played Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (played the 1st one, wasn't impressed) but I bet that main protagonist, Rex I believe, will make the cut.

And for the love of god, bring back Wolf O'Donnel! That was the only thing I really hated about Smash 4!
