Up until recently, Nintendo's mainstream marketing efforts have been predominantly focused on Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! as the big release draws closer.

The entire clip seems to be so well made it's raised questions about why it wasn't included in the final Smash Ultimate Direct prior to the game's release on 7th December. At the very least, it looks like these battle scenes would be lovely as phone or desktop wallpapers.

Nintendo Japan has also released a special reverse version of the video:
