Super Smash Bros has been one of Nintendo’s most enduring, popular series. Originally launched on the N64, we’ve had several versions since, and the Gamecube version still enjoys huge numbers of players as one of the premier competitive fighting games.
As the name suggests, Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the pinnacle of the series. Bringing together every single character who has ever featured in the series (along with a few newcomers), as well as updated beloved features such as each character’s final smash, Smash Bros Ultimate promises to be a truly epic clash.
No matter if you love Link, Mario, Kirby or any one of other 60 other iconic Nintendo characters, prepare for an epic battle on the Nintendo Switch!
