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

Here comes a big boy.

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.
