Ridley Stomps his Way into Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch

Here comes a big boy.

News by Nadia Oxford, .

Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch has every Smash character that's ever smashed before. Plus, there's one addition aside from the Inklings: Ridley from the Metroid series.

The reveal occurred at the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 presentation. Ridley, Samus Aran's dragonlike arch-rival, has been a much-requested Smash character for years. His exclusion has been chalked up to being "too large," but here he is in Smash Bros Ultimate. Large and in charge.

There's a lot of new Smash info to digest, in fact. Take a look at our guide to Super Smash Bros Ultimate, then hop over to our E3 2018 guide for everything you need to know about the show.

    Smash Bros was the best type of presentation for E3. They discussed gameplay changes, what's new, what features to expect.

    I wish everyone did E3 like Nintendo instead of just rapid fire advertisement for shit that I'm going to look at a year from now and think "yeah that's totally a 3 out of 5 game on any reasonable person's scale but of course it has a 93 on Metacritic because it's open world, gritty, allegedly emotional, and filled with pointless fetchquests."

    But this game releases in 6 months. That is ample time to get my dude Waluigi into the line-up. It's time, people, it's time.

    Two additions besides the Inkling; Daisy graduated from palette swap to a proper playable character. Or at least an alternate skin/voice set. But hey, if Dark Pit got his own slot I don't see why she couldn't.Edited June 2018 by MetManMas

    My God.

    They did it, they actually did it, those maniacs!

    Also, absolutely love the trolling of putting Ridley and Daisy both in the roster, but still keeping Waluigi confined to an assist trophy. A+

    Still kinda bummed about the lack of something like Brawl's totally bonkers story mode though.

    @NiceGuyNeon Waluigi has been confirmed to stay as an Assist Trophy though.
