Every Super Smash Bros. character ever will be playable on the Switch

Every Super Smash Bros. character ever will be playable on the Switch”

The Nintendo Direct E3 208 presentation went heavy on Super Smash Bros.

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

Along with the usual cast of classic Nintendo characters like Mario, Link, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Bowser, and Jigglypuff, Nintendo revealed that every character who has ever been in Smash will be in Super Smash Bros. The new character, Samus Aran's dragon foe Ridley, is even something Smash fans have been spreading rumors about for more than a decade. Smash Bros. is a game made for the Nintendo Switch and will doubtless be one of the biggest releases of the holiday period. This took up the bulk of the Direct, as it went over changes and updates to numerous characters' attacks and appearances. Also important are the gameplay mechanics, which are fairly unique to the series, though a few similar games have popped up in recent years. Jump in to be the last one standing in the free 100-player Battle Royale. You'll have to wait until the second quarter of 2019 to get your hands on it but we bet its worth the while.

Nintendo announced in April that it had sold 17.7 million units of the Switch to date, and forecast it would sell a further 20 million over the following year.

Fortnite is available to download for Nintendo Switch from 10am PT / 6pm BST today.

While you're at it, you might want to secure a copy of the aforementioned Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo's own Reggie Fils-Aimé introduced Pokemon Let's Go! As you will see in the trailer above, Super Mario Party will explore the capabilities of the Nintendo Switch in creative new ways.

Move sets, "final smash" attacks, and mechanical tweaks were described at length, with the most notable mechanical tweak being the ability to charge certain attacks in mid-air. The game is an amalgamation of all the great things from previous entries in the series, plus some new stuff to make it look and feel better.

With the Switch, that's not an issue, and the company showed a long sizzle reel, showing off several games that are coming including Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Megaman 11 and many more. Some retailers are offering discounts for pre-ordering the game, which you can find below.
