Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Everyone. Literally, everyone that has been playable in past Super Smash Bros. games will be playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This alone is incredible. They have even introduced brand new characters. Inkling will be making their debut in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Even Solid Snake is back!

One character that has been requested since the start is here. Samus’ rival, and the monster that left her orphaned – Ridley. Ridley is a massive monster and space pirate. To make him a playable character, they had to make him smaller. The intimidation factor shouldn’t be decreased too much. After all, you’ll be able to play as a flying monster that most likely ate Samus’ parents!


Check out the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate segment in which they reveal the characters and they go over the many changes of the characters since the last time they were playable. There will also be a thing called Echo Fighters in which different characters like Daisy will be a different version of Peach, for example. Fake Smash Balls. Returning stages. New Assist Trophies. And even compatibility with Gamecube controllers.


Nintendo made sure to prove that they are still extremely relevant in the gaming industry and they are here to stay. They provide something for all ages. It’s incredible what Nintendo is capable of. With the limited hardware of the Nintendo Switch, Nintendo still captivates us and excels to impress us with the beautiful visuals and captivating gameplay.
