New characters, stages, modes, and more coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

New characters, stages, modes, and more coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

But, as always, Smash Bros. is expected to steal the show, which is why Nintendo is dedicating an entire Direct live stream to the game on August 8th at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET. Sakurai also revealed that Ultimate will have a total of 103 stages (compared with the previous game's 56), all available from the beginning. They're not all new, of course - in fact, all the N64 stages will reappear in their old low-poly glory - but many are, including New Donk City Hall. Ultimate will also feature some returning favorites, both for single and multiplayer situations. Players will also be given the chance to morph into a 2nd character mid-battle. There is also a Sound Test menu, which lets you create custom playlists that can be listened to when your Switch is in Sleep Mode. We haven't had one of those since The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. If they are fighting on a stage from The Legend of Zelda, for example, they can select any music track included from that franchise, including new additions like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Main Theme. The son of Dracula will appear as a particularly fearsome Assist Trophy, attacking in his normal dhampir form as well as turning into mist or a swarm of bats. Well, Sonic's friend Knuckles is here too, and so is Krystal from Star Fox, and Shovel Knight, and even frickin' Nikki from the 3DS Swapnote/Swapdoodle apps.

Smashdown: After every battle in Smashdown, the selected characters no longer become available. Lastly, the game will see the return of Classic Mode, in which players have to make their way through a set of different stages to see how well they do.

As most Castlevania fans will know, "Bloody Tears" and "Monster Dance" are tracks lifted from the iconic Konami series. This mode favors players who are skilled with multiple fighters and encourages others to diversify their rosters. It now features an exclusive stage with a grid background with numbers indicating distance. And since Nintendo Switch can be played anywhere, these tournaments can even take place in unexpected places!
