Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Here’s how you know if a Smash Bros. character is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch. You ask yourself: have they ever been in a Smash Bros. game before? If the answer is yes, then that character is in the game. That character might be in the game even if the answer is no. Nintendo’s tagline from the direct was a succinct “Everybody is Here.” That means that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have the biggest roster of any Smash Bros. yet, complete with formerly cut characters like the Ice Climbers, Wolf and Pichu.

Lots of these characters are updated to reflect their most recent appearances in other games: Mario will have Cappy, for example, and Link now sports the blue tunic from Breath of the Wild. There are also a ton of alternate costumes as well as “echo fighters,” which are fighters with a very similar style to another fighter with slight differences, like Peach and Daisy. I can’t imagine these are all the characters that will be in the final game, and Nintendo has likely saved a few announcements for later down the road. Maybe a tennis Mario? Shovel Knight, please? The Space Marine from DOOM?

All told, this doesn’t look all that much different from Super Smash Bros. on Wii U, but this is an iterative franchise, after all. Even if it were the exact same game, the simple fact of a Switch release would expose it to a much wider audience and give it a whole new lease on life. Here are all the characters we saw today, along with three new ones in bold:

  • Mario (with Cappy)

Nintendo Is Literally More Valuable Than Sony Because You’re All Nerd-Ass Pokémon Go Freaks

Sometimes I wake up in a tizzy in the middle of the night, jolted awake with the anxiety that I am somehow separate from regular society because I fundamentally do not understand the appeal of Pokémon fucking Go. Welp, turns out I am. Because Pokémon Go is fucking unstoppable, and now, according to Bloomberg, Nintendo is worth more than Sony. Let that sink in for a second.
