Smash Series Amiibo Announced For New Ultimate Playable Characters

Smash Series Amiibo Announced For New Ultimate Playable Characters

Depending on what kind of Nintendo fan you are, you're either overjoyed to see Ridley join the roster, or miffed that anticipated E3 2018 games like a new Animal Crossing on Switch and Metroid Prime 4 were total no-shows.

For starters, the Switch game includes the highest number of characters of any entry in the franchise, bringing together every character that's ever been present in past entries, even those that were removed in later entries, such Wolf from the Star Fox franchise or Young Link from The Legend of Zelda. Nintendo, as usual, had a pre-recorded video instead of a live event at E3 2018.

The game releases August 7th. It wouldn't be a Nintendo E3 conference, after all, without some awkward teenagers huddled around a Switch pretending to have fun.

1705: Reggie Fils-Aime has appeared on stream to share more news on Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee. Ultimate that even the most hardcore of fans will have trouble keeping track of, and I don't doubt that this incredibly ambitious game will change and evolve before it releases worldwide on December 7th. Amiibos and any Amiibos featuring a selectable character would be supported by the game. You get to play old games online! Players will be free to explore various locations, interacting with characters before battle begins. They both look exceptional, and the latter is available on the Nintendo eShop starting today.

There were a few noticeable visual differences in Ultimate's reveal. The Switch has also become a thriving home for indie games, and Hollow Knight, Overcooked 2 and Killer Queen Black were also given a piece of the spotlight. Adventure is available today on the eShop, as is Bethesda's Fallout Shelter.

The original Mario Party mode will be included with new features including "character dice blocks, a party system, and new boards to explore" according to the game's official website. Here are all the major new Switch titles.

Nintendo's Direct presentation just ended, and it's safe to say the highlight was an explosion of info on Super Smash Bros.

In case you don't make it to the Smash Bros Invitational for yourself, here's what it's like to play Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros, one of Nintendo's most beloved first-party franchises, is coming to the Switch. Nintendo quietly telegraphed this move previous year when a Switch firmware update added Gamecube controller support back in October.

After that, we take a good 15 minutes to talk about the characters in depth, detail their special abilities and mechanics.

For the most part, as with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, the Switch version of Smash Bros. looks to be more of a refinement on what's gone before.
