Super Smash Bros. Ultimate(JP) is the latest entry in the Super Smash Bros. series, releasing on the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018 everywhere. It includes all the characters and most stages from across the series.

Gameplay

The game mostly stays the same as Super Smash Bros. for Wii U though the game has been streamlined more for competitive play. This time, the players can customize their ruleset and save it before fighting. Additionally, the stage is decided before character selection. Damage is increased for one-on-one fights. Directional Air Dodges have returned but, dodging will be slower for increased use. Final Smashes have changed for a lot of characters with most becoming short cinematic finishers.

Assist Trophies have changed so that some of them can be attacked and KO'd. KO'd ones can earn points for the player that defeats them. There are over 50 different characters including cameos from third parties.

Roster

The game includes every character from across the series. Some characters which share the same moveset are moved to the same character slot as Echo Characters.

 Stages

There are a total of 103 stages in the game

Music

List of music in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
The game includes over 900 tracks with 800 of them being used on stage songs. This time all music from a series can be used on stages from the same series. Like in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, music can be played while the Switch is in sleep mode. However, the music can be organized into playlists.

Development

The game was first revealed during a Nintendo Direct broadcasted on March 8, 2018. However, if we are to believe the tweet made by Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the series, the game was in development for an unspecified amount of time before that. According to him, the game was not ready to be shown beyond his working title during this first trailer. The project plan was finished in late 2015, while development on the Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS DLC was still ongoing.

The game was revealed at E3 2018 during Nintendo's presentation. The game was presented in depth by Masahiro Sakurai. It focused on the fighters and the changes to them as well as revealing Daisy and Ridley.

Another Nintendo Direct, on August 8, 2018, went into more details about the modes and revealed the Belmonts, Chrom, Dark Samus and King K. Rool.
