Nintendo announced their new game in the Super Smash Bros. series during their E3 conference. December 7th of this year, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released on the Nintendo Switch.
And just in time for the new Smash Ultimate, Nintendo announced the new GameCube controllers, similar to the GameCube controllers released for Super Smash Bros. WiiU.
The new Smash title moves quick, similar to Melee, which should make some players happy. The game also includes nostalgia from older Smash games as well, such as the updated Safforn City stage. This game seems to be casting a wide net, trying to bring in as many players, old and new, as possible.
In addition to the changes and additions, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will also bring back EVERY character from the past Smash titles. Get ready to welcome back characters such as Snake, Young Link and the Ice Climbers.
Some characters will be getting an update. We will be seeing a new incarnation of Link, this time around we get his Breath of The Wild version and we’ll be seeing the Super Mario Odyssey version of Mario.
Along with familiar faces, we’ll be seeing at least one new face. Ridley will be joining the fight as well.
We also saw at the Nintendo Direct that the Inklings would be making an appearance.
If my twitter feed is any indication, I’d say people are pretty stoked about the announcement of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and I can’t say I blame them.
Some changes to the new smash include the map choice. Players will have the ability to choose a map BEFORE they choose characters, which will greatly improve on strategy for picking a fighter. Each map will also include an Battlefield version and Final Destination version.
There’s still more info dropping and more to take from the Nintendo E3 conference, but this is exciting news.
As a long time fan with countless hours put into WiiU, I’m excited for the next iteration of Smash.
