‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Will Have Every Smash Bros. Character

Ridley was confirmed to be launching with the game. Fortnite on Switch, it goes without saying, will be huge.

The upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Switch, Super Smash Bros. Nintendo has already shown this with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Splatoon 2 (both essentially ports of Wii U games that hardly anyone played) and now it's repeating the trick with Super Smash Bros. Characters previously released as paid downloadable content are also included in the game.

Nintendo called it the biggest gaming crossover in history - demonstrating its determination to throw everything it has at its comeback. Who knows if we'll get more surprise reveals before it's release.


As for newcomers, we saw the moveset of the Inklings for the first time. And all the old stages are back, albeit with a bit of a facelift. There was a healthy sample of stages in the demo I played, but not too many noticeable new stages outside of the aforementioned Breath of the Wild stage. If Super Smash Bros. for 3DS was anything to go by, this is going to take the portability of the franchise above and beyond what's expected. Fans were thrilled by what they saw.

And that's a pretty good plan. A new GameCube controller was shown off during the presentation as well. If you are a fan of the Super Smash Bros universe then you'll be amazed to find out that all past characters in the franchise will be available on Nintendo Switch this year. And, in short, it looks great.

Super Mario Party - a mini-game collection that allows players to place two Switch consoles side-by-side to let characters shoot at each other and move between devices.


Ain't no party like a Mario party, because a Mario Party don't stop.

Nintendo kicked things off with a new game, which you might've mistaken for a new Armored Core.

As you can see in the trailer, a range of play styles will feature including a particularly fancy looking game featuring multiple Switch consoles lying on a table, all lining up to create a single image. Video games in the former category include the aforementioned Smash title along with Super Mario Party while games like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Fortnite, and Hollow Knight will be making their jump to the Switch.
