Amiibo figures announced for all 5 new 'Smash Bros. Ultimate' fighters

09 August 2018

In addition to playable characters, Sakurai detailed information on new stages, assist trophies, items, and game modes. EVER! Faster combat, new items, new attacks, new defensive options, and more will keep the battle raging whether you're at home or on the go. Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont, Donkey Kong's King K. Rool, and Metroid's Dark Samus will all make their debuts in the Super Smash Bros franchise. So far this bundle has only been announced for Europe, though it may come to the USA as well. Richter Belmont, Simon's descendant and echo fighter, is best known for his Castlevania: Symphony of the Night appearance (and excellent quotes).

An excellent new stage showcased is New Donk City Hall. Most stages will feature a new brushed up look, but stages from the original Nintendo 64 version of Smash Bros will retain their classic look. Players will be able to turn off hazards for each stage, allowing them to fight without the stage acting as an enemy too.

Of course, just because Luigi's death is now canon (we will not accept rebuttals to this definite fact) doesn't mean there wasn't plenty of other awesome Smash Bros. reveals.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release for Nintendo Switch on December 7th, 2018. Thus, you can pick from a larger collection of music for each stage.

Nintendo has announced five new Super Smash Bros. New Pokemon that will appear in Ultimate include Alolan Exeggutor, Vulpix (both standard and Alolan varieties), Solgaleo, Lunala, Mimikyu, Abra, Ditto, and Pyukumuku. Well, Sonic's friend Knuckles is here too, and so is Krystal from Star Fox, and Shovel Knight, and even frickin' Nikki from the 3DS Swapnote/Swapdoodle apps. "As you can see, there's a mysterious mode here, but we can't talk about that just yet". If you missed it, here's a breakdown of the latest reveals for the new game. Haha, yeah, Super Smash Bros.

Squad Strike: A team battle mode similar to what's actually found in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Ultimate. Each fighter has a set of stages and opponents that she or he will face.

Some say the best way to play Smash is with a GameCube controller.

Returning favorites with new visuals and tweaks will make up most of the stages in Super Smash Bros. You can fill any gaps you may have with AI players too, making this a viable mode for smaller groups as well.
