Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is an upcoming fighting video game developed by Bandai Namco Studios and Sora Ltd. and published by Nintendo. It is the fifth installment in the Super Smash Bros. series and will be released for the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a non-traditional fighting game in which players use different attacks to weaken their opponents and knock them out of an arena. It features a crossover cast of characters from several different Nintendo franchises, as well as from third-party properties. Ultimate includes all characters from all previous Super Smash Bros. games, including those previously released as downloadable content, as well as some new characters, bringing the current total roster of playable characters to 68, the highest number of characters in any Super Smash Bros. game. New characters announced include the Inklings from Splatoon and Ridley from the Metroid series. Additionally, characters who were previously alternate costumes of regular fighters are now known as Echo Fighters. These fighters have identical or similar movesets to other characters. For instance, Princess Daisy from the Mario franchise, who previously inspired a costume for Princess Peach in prior Super Smash Bros. titles, is an individual Echo Fighter in Ultimate. Due to the large number of returning fighters, the game will not feature many newcomers to the roster, unlike previous Super Smash Bros. games. Several of the characters have received updates to their outfits, such as Mario having Cappy from Super Mario Odyssey accompanying him and Link shown in his outfit from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Others have been updated with new moves and abilities. Players will not have access to all characters on starting the game, and will need to unlock them by completing various challenges in-game; Nintendo anticipates making it easier for players to unlock all of the game's characters compared to previous games.
