A few months ago, Nintendo confirmed that a new Super Smash Bros. game would be launching for the Nintendo Switch. However the company was mum on the details and apart from a confirmation, little was revealed about the game, at least until now where at E3 2018, Nintendo has officially unveiled Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
As the name suggests, this will be the "ultimate" Super Smash Bros. title, but why, you ask? According to Nintendo, this is because this version of the game will feature every single character from every Smash game that has ever been released. Yup, this means that players will be able to look forward to seeing old characters return to the game as per an earlier rumor.
However they won’t be 100% the same as Nintendo has also announced some changes that they will be making to characters, such as giving them new and updated costumes (such as Link being dressed in his Breath of the Wild tunic), improvements to skills, and so on. Nintendo is also claiming improvements to the overall game system, where they have developed the new engine to play faster.
It will also see the return of the 8 player mode, meaning that up to 8 players will be able to duke it out at once. As expected there are also new characters, such as the Inklings from Splatoon, Ridley, and Daisy from the Mario franchise. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is currently set for a release on the 7th of December, 2018 so keep an eye out for it if this is a title that you’re looking forward to.
