Super Smash Bros is finally coming to the Switch in the form of Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and it has more characters, stages, and songs than you can shake a stick at, with even more to be announced before it’s release date of 7th December 2018. If you are curious as to what characters have been announced, Eurogamer has a handy list of all the characters released so far, along with a guide on what tweaks and new things are coming to each character. Right here and now, we’re going to look at the absolute cheapest Super Smash Bros Ultimate prices around.
The Nintendo fighting game is also bringing some new gameplay modes to the table, you can be #SquadGoals with the “Squad Strike” mode, allowing players to choose between 3v3 or 5v5 fights, in a tag team style battle, or you have “Smashdown,” where you and your opponent choose your characters, and once one of you have lost you select a new character to continue. Fighters already picked can’t be used again, so it’s an interesting way to use up the entire cast, as well as get a little bit tactical depending on who you choose to battle with.
Competitive players have “Tourney Mode” making a return after the Miiverse’s demise, up to 32 players can join, and the brackets are created for you.
However, if the multiplayer modes aren’t your jam, the Classic single-player campaign is making a return. For more details on these modes, NintendoLife has a great write up on it that you can check out.
