Earlier today, another Nintendo Direct event was held, focusing on the highly-anticipated game once more, which follows its previous Direct broadcast in August and introduced five new fighters and a whopping 103 stages. So let's see what we're in for. Ultimate, which features Kirby as the long hero (and true savior, mind you) standing tall after an attack pretty much wipes out all the characters from the game, turning them into Spirits.
Really it's just a cool video showing a lot of fan-favorite Nintendo characters in the same place battling it out against an impressive light show.
This is on top of the incredibly time-sink heavy "spirit" system that allows players to use Pokemon-like sensibilities to enhance their stats. In fact, there are 59 assist trophies that can be used within the game!
The online mode will try to prioritize finding opponents that are nearby, and Nintendo recommends buying an Ethernet adapter for the Switch to get more stable connections. Ultimate voice chat. There will also be an exclusive service called Smash World, starting in 2019.
Surprising no-one Nintendo confirmed that there'll be multiple sets of DLC which will include one fighter, level and music track, at a cost of £5.39/€5.99 per pack. Ken is an Echo Fighter of Ryu, meaning he plays similarly with a faster movement speed and a different Hadoken blast.
Speaking of Mii Fighters, they get a bunch of new outfits including Yiga Clan, Splatoon 2, Ribbon Girl, Chibi-Robo, Ray Mk III, and Toy-Con. All the characters won't be known yet, but the pass is $24.99.
