When Nintendo announced that the Switch version of Smash Bros. would be called Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it wasn't kidding about the title; every single character that has ever appeared in any previous Smash Bros. game is available on the Nintendo Switch incarnation. Crikey.
Along with updated moves and final smashes, Sakurai-san and his team updated the visuals for almost all the characters matching them with, more often than not, their latest game appearance. We've put them together in this gallery of hi-res artwork for everyone to sit back and enjoy.
Remember, while the numbers (currently) go up to 75, you'll find more than that in our gallery thanks to the five 'echo' fighters (denoted with a 'ε') that share another fighter's spot (Ryu and Ken at #60, for example, or Simon Belmont and Richter at #66). Joker, the Hero from Dragon Quest and Banjo and Kazooie have joined the fray along with the latest recruit, SNK's Terry Bogard. Now there's only one more DLC slot left...
Except Nintendo has now announced further DLC fighters beyond Challenger #5! Who will they be?
