Two Beard Gaming is currently playing and reviewing Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch. Check back soon for our thoughts and final words.
In the meantime why not check out the Dev notes and video below:
What the Dev’s say:
Legendary game worlds and fighters collide in the ultimate showdown—a entry in the Super Smash Bros. series for the Nintendo Switch system! Fighters, like Inkling from the Splatoon series and Ridley from the Metroid series, make their Super Smash Bros. series debut alongside every Super Smash Bros. fighter in the series ever! Ultimate lets up to eight players square off in action-packed battles that are all about smashing beloved video game characters off the screen.
Have a blast trying to launch your opponents off the stage in the ultimate action game. Faster combat, new items, new attacks, new defensive options, techniques and more will keep the battle raging whether you’re at home or on the go.
Fun for all!
Multiple modes and options mean everyone can play. In Smash, select your stages, set the rules and play with up to eight players total. Or, create a team of three or five fighters and take on your opponent’s squad one by one in Squad Strike. And that’s just the beginning!
Spirits let you simulate battles between characters from more series than ever before, so see how many you can collect! Fighters can join forces with spirits to enhance their powers. While primary spirits enhance fighters’ stats, support spirits lend them additional skills. Once the primary spirit and support spirits are set, your fighter’s all powered up!
More than 100 stages!
Returning stages have been powered up, and every stage has Battlefield and Final Destination versions. There are plenty of surprise Stage Hazards to discover, including stages that change shape and guest characters that suddenly appear. Plus, with Stage Morph, choose the two stages you want to use and they’ll automatically switch after a certain amount of time.
Pick your favourite themed music for battle stages and set your background music. There are more than 800 tracks in total!
Use items to your advantage!
The items that appear on stage can be the key to victory – if you use them correctly! Pokémon can also leap from Poké Balls and Master Balls to support you in battle, and you can get help from guest characters with Assist Trophies!
