You don’t have to be a fan of any one gaming property to be looking forward to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a big, meaty brawler that’s coming to Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018. This game boasts a massive roster comprised of every character seen in the series to date–including Snake and Cloud, plus a whole lot more.
Metroid’s Ridley is also being introduced as a new character alongside Castlevania’s Simon Belmont and Animal Crossing’s Isabelle–among many others. Another change of note is support for all Smash Bros. Amiibo figures and the ability to select a stage before choosing characters.
