Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Release Date Set for December

Screen Shot

Ultimate supports all the amiibo from the existing Super Smash Bros. collection, as well as amiibo from other collections, provided they represent characters that are included in the game.

Nintendo stumbled with the Wii U, but its follow up console/portable hybrid has been a hit. It'll be out in 2019 and focus on mechs smashing the crap out of each other. Be sure to let us know your thoughts on E3 2018 in the comments. Head to our dedicated E3 2018 hub to see all the new releases, along with TechRadar's world-class analysis and buying advice about the next year in gaming.

Anyone who loves a good Metroidvania should play Hollow Knight ASAP - and fortunately, it's been ported to Nintendo Switch as of this very moment. However, the Switch still has the classic Nintendo problem of a shallow game catalog.

A new Mario Party game, simply titled Super Mario Party, is headed to Switch with themed boards, dice rolls, and minigames aplenty.

Throughout today's presentation, Nintendo executives said they had listened to what the company's fans wanted. Its release is not far, as Super Mario Party releases on October 5th, 2018. Complete with an epic reveal trailer we've come to expect from Smash, Samus Aran's arch-nemesis is on the roster, complete with an amiibo. But if you get really into it, there's a lot more to play. After Bethesda's announcement that Fallout Shelter and Elder Scrolls Legends are coming to the hybrid console.

An hour after the Direct presentation wrapped, my colleague Mat Smith and I made our way to a media pen behind Nintendo's booth and grabbed a pair of Pro Controllers.

There were a few noticeable visual differences in Ultimate's reveal. Many of them have new costumes.

Octopath Traveler, the latest title from Square Enix, is finally nearly done.

That was a long one right? The graphics and lighting have noticeably been improved over past games in the Super Smash Bros. franchise, of course, but gameplay tweaks are where Ultimate shines.

At the massive Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles Tuesday, Nintendo took the wraps off Super Smash Bros.

Surprisingly, only two brand new characters were announced though: an Inkling from Splatoon (actually eight different Inklings, split between male and female and all using different colours) and the much requested Ridley from Metroid. Ultimate on December 7 this year.
