Super Smash Bros Ultimate on Switch Will Have Every Smash Hero Ever, Release Date Announced

Every hero. Ever.

Super Smash Bros. (Now called Super Smash Bros. Ultimate) headlined today's Nintendo Direct at E3 2018 and every Super Smash Bros. hero in history is playable in the Nintendo Switch sequel. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be available on December 7, 2018 exclusively on the Switch.

In a highlight reel revealing all the new characters coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo instead took the moment to surprise players by announcing every character in Smash history is coming to Super Smash Bros for Smash. Every. Single. Character.

That means fan favorite characters like Roy, Mewtwo, and even Snake are back for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Super Smash director Masahiro Sakurai explained that the process of unlocking new heroes has been streamlined to account for the sheer amount of characters in the game, but will feel no less like an achievement.
