Check Out This Awesome Super Smash Bros. Ultimate vs. Super Smash Bros. Wii U Graphics Comparison

Just a port, eh?

A video has been released comparing stages from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to the same ones from Super Smash Bros. Wii U. It serves to highlights the differences in detail and design that the new entry is bringing to the table, hopefully putting to bed claims that it is merely a port of the previous version.

The video in question comes via GameXplain, and shows direct comparisons for iconic Smash Bros stages featured in the two games. There’s a lot of stages shown off, including Peach’s Castle, Dreamland, Hyrule Castle, Pilot Wings and more, with there being a noticeable step up in graphical fidelity for each one.

When Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was first announced, many had claimed that it was a just a port of the game that released on the Nintendo Wii U. GameXplain’s video gives us the best evidence yet that Ultimate is a brand new game in its own right.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will feature 103 stages at launch, with players able to pick from a huge roster of fighters, a roster that includes every Smash Bros character in the series’ history. There are new characters too, with Castlevania’s Simon Belmont announced during the Smash Bros Nintendo Direct that aired last week. There’s also Ridley from Metroid, King K.Rule from Donkey Kong Country, and the Inklings from Splatoon.

If you were looking for more info on the game, you can head over to our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Guides Hub. There’s a look at all of the new features that the game brings to the series, and detailed breakdowns of every character featured.
