Super Smash Bros Ultimate is finally here, bringing the largest roster of fighters the series has seen yet. Every single fighter that has featured previously is coming back this time around, with 74 playable characters at launch. There are even more planned for post-launch, making the choice of which character to pick even harder. That’s why we’ve been busy pulling together character guides for each, highlighting the changes that have been made since the last game. In this Super Smash Bros Ultimate Shulk guide, we’ll be focusing on Shulk, the fighter from Xenoblade Chronicles. We’ll look at Shulk’s Final Smash, and the Alternate Costumes that you can choose from.
