Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Releases On Switch Today

The biggest Super Smash Bros. game yet is releasing today for Nintendo Switch, and the fans couldn't be more excited about it.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate

It’s been a long wait since E3 2018, where Nintendo announced Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch, but today’s the day we get to fight with the largest array of characters and stages ever to grace the series.

Nintendo has published a Super Smash Bros game for every Nintendo console since the Nintendo 64, so it was inevitable that we’d be getting one for the Nintendo Switch, but it was surprising how quickly we got it, and especially surprising how close to the release it was announced. It didn’t take very long for the game to reach an incredible level of hype amongst its fans.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be the second (or third, if you ask Sakurai) game in the franchise to be developed by Bandai Namco and Sora Ltd, whereas the first three entries were all developed by HAL Laboratories (among other developers who worked on single entries with them).

So far, the character roster is made up of sixty-nine characters, plus one DLC character, and there’s a ludicrous amount of stages, too: 103 stages in total, with every single one of them having a normal form, a battlefield form (the stage’s aesthetics and music with the same layout as the battlefield stage), and an “Omega” or Final Destination form (which replaces the layout with one single platform similar to Final Destination).

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases today (December 7) for $59.99 or $140 if you pre-ordered the Ultimate Special Edition.
