Super Smash Bros. Ultimate includes every character ever - plus Snake and Ridley

Leonardo “MkLeo” Perez Nairoby “Nairo” Quezada Ramin “Mr.R” Delshad Gonzalo “ZeRo” Barrios and Yuta “Abadango” Kawamura are all expert players of previous versions of the game “Super Smash Bros” but will play the new iteration

NIntendo at its Nintendo Direct for E3 2018 on Tuesday, June 12 (June 13, Manila time) announced Super Mario Party, a Fire Emblem role-playing title for the Switch. Ultimate, built in a shinier version of the Smash Wii U engine, would celebrate the entire series by including every character ever I almost screamed in this office like a jerk YouTuber. Smash Bros. is a game made for the Nintendo Switch and will doubtless be one of the biggest releases of the holiday period.

During Nintendo's E3 show, Overcooked 2, the sequel to one of our favorite co-op games, was announced.

This story is developing.

I had a chance to get an early hands-on demo with Super Smash Bros.

Game Informer caught up with Bill Trinen, senior product manager for Nintendo of America, and asked why Metroid Prime 4 wasn't at E3 this year. Playing with the new characters and stages was a blast, but even small adjustments to mechanics and the presentation could make this the best Smash Bros. yet.

Perhaps the most significant difference between Super Smash Bros. A Daisy amiibo will also be coming, but was not shown.

Super Mario Party will arrive on Switch October 5. Along with character reveals, which included all previous characters from the series, plus a few new ones, we learned about how the game will change on the way to the Switch. For those on the fence about buying a Switch, the Japanese games company has now given pretty much every possible nudge. 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. The player can maneuver the main character freely and interact with other characters to build relationships and gather information at various points within the game. You can use GameCube controllers and Melee techniques like directional air dodge and ideal shielding should up the technical game.

For my second match I chose the lithe and lovely gun-toting Bayonetta, and it came down to a sudden death faceoff against Street Fighter's Ryu. A new title card screen pops up before each fight, showing large portraits of each character before the battle begins.

For starters, the Switch game includes the highest number of characters of any entry in the franchise, bringing together every character that's ever been present in past entries, even those that were removed in later entries, such Wolf from the Star Fox franchise or Young Link from The Legend of Zelda.
