Ultimate. Each fighter has a set of stages and opponents that she or he will face. Haha, yeah, Super Smash Bros.

During today's Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. After picking up to 32 participants (and how many of those will be CPUs) players are given bracket options that can include standard 1-on-1 battles or 4-on-4 madness with a shorter bracket.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is scheduled to hit store on December 7th just in time for the holidays season.

A GameCube controller has been the preferred input for pro-level and diehard Smash Bros. players ever since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong Country series will be entering the fray as a new fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable fighter. And if you want to keep a more grounded feel while playing Smash Ultimate, you can change each stage to its omega (flat) or battlefield (flat with three platforms) version. Players will then battle with one character at a time, switching between fighters whenever one is defeated. We haven't had one of those since The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros.

And if you're really into video game music, you can plug your headphones into your Switch and listen to tracks while the Switch screen is turned off, kind of like an extra-large MP3 player. Poké Balls also have a few new Pokémon that can be found, mostly focusing around the creatures introduced in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, such as Alolan Exeggutor, Solgaleo, Lunala, and more. Ultimate include the Banana Gun, Killing Edge, Bomber, Death's Scythe, Staff, Ramblin' Evil Mushroom and Rage Blaster, among others from a wide variety of different video game franchises. While it can be played between just two people with each option, Squad Strike could be the ultimate crew battle option for big Smash Bros. events and parties.

Smashdown is also an elimination mode of sorts, but with a bit of a twist.
