‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Will Have Every Smash Bros. Character

E3 2018 Nintendo Freshens up Local Multiplayer with Overcooked 2 and Killer Queen Black

The game will release this year on December 7 for Nintendo Switch, but you can pre-order it right now for $59.99.

At long last, a flagship entry in the Fire Emblem series will arrive for the Switch. Ultimate, and looks to be the biggest installment yet. Nintendo is pumping up the list with free-to-play games with the announcement of Fortnite and Paladins. But it's the sort of trick Nintendo has been pulling off with regularity.

Each of the classic stages retain their original mechanics and quirks - Electrode still pops out from Silph co. on the roof in Saffron City, for example - but all of them have been given a fresh coat of paint to match the game's more detailed aesthetic.

- Plenty of levels from other "Super Smash Bros." games will return, but there will be new maps as well. The lineup also features characters previously available as third-party DLC on the Wii U and 3DS, like Bayonetta and Ryu.

Super Mario Party Is the Ultimate Party Game for Nintendo Switch
December's Smash Bros. Ultimate includes every existing character, plus Ridley

Nintendo always said that their E3 this year would be dominated by the new Smash Bros. and they weren't lying. New fighters, like Inkling from the Splatoon series and Ridley from the Metroid series, make their Super Smash Bros. series debut alongside every Super Smash Bros. fighter in the series... But personally I almost nearly died from hype, and it's because Super Smash Bros.

Watch the full 25-minute presentation of the game below. After all, if it ain't broke. Newcomers may be more limited this time but Inklings and Ridley will get folks pretty pumped. And, in short, it looks great. It's called Mario Party Super and the portable console has introduced some interesting new twists to some of the multiplayer mini-games. The series has lost its way in recent years and long-term fans will be hoping for something more like Mario Party 6 (irrefutably the best Mario Party) than Mario Party 10 (irrefutably the worst).

As you can see in the trailer, a range of play styles will feature including a particularly fancy looking game featuring multiple Switch consoles lying on a table, all lining up to create a single image. This is still the casual cartoony button-masher if you want it to be. Ultimate, Nintendo has some good news for you. Fire Emblem: Three Houses looks ludicrously handsome, but beyond confirmation of a Spring 2019 release date there's not much more to say. Nintendo also added some of the most popular games from third-party publishers, including Federation Internationale de Football Association 18, NBK 2K18, Skyrim, Rocket League, Stardew Valley, and Minecraft. We caught glimpses of the new assist trophies and items but in the midst of battle it was hard to focus on anything other than staying alive.
