Review Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - The Absolute Pinnacle Of Nintendo's Fighting Series
Still no playable Waluigi, though
Crossovers happen all the time in games, films, TV shows and just about every other form of media out there, but none of them can really be compared to Super Smash Bros.; no, not even that film that you’re thinking of. So it’s beyond a bold move to name the latest entry in a series ‘Ultimate’, thus raising...

I NEED THIS NOW!!
i cant wait for this game (
I WANT THIS GAME RIGHT NOW!
Heck yeah, Smash 5, baby!
It shall be mine.
Oh Heck Ya, Smash Bros 5 is here, and Sakurai, this is the best secret game Nintendo is making
I just hope they add more Sonic Characters to Super Smash Bros. for the Switch like Shadow, Dr.Eggman, Tails, and Knuckles. And since they added Mega Man who is a Capcom character, they should add Spider Man. He had some games associated with Nintendo. They should definitly add the Daily Bugle as a new stage to smash. They should Dark Samus from Metroid and have a Space Pirate as an Assist Trophy. These are characters I've been itching to see in Smash. And I can't wait to play with the Inklings from Splatoon to fight with on Smash. And I hope we can still play with our Mii Characters with new fighting moves and techniques
Ridley is hear! Thus I am already fully satisfied.
But there is still room for more if Sakurai is willing, three figures stand out to me that he might be hiding away even now.
The first is Shovel Knight, Representing indie Games, his simple title is a representation of classic gaming, he is iconic and possesses many power ups that give him a variety of moves.
Next would be Sans or Frisk from Undertale, At first I was sure it would be Sans from shear popularity, but if I were Sakurai, I'd pick frisk and have all of their moves actually be done by the other characters of Undertale, with 'Save the world' as the final smash, a unity attack from all of the major characters. This works because Frisk is a pacifist at heart (remember Chara is the fighter), and their friends would be protecting them. (The reason i wouldn't choose Sans is because he has only one HP he'd be blown away in one hit, it makes more sense for Frisk because their more durable)
And Lastly Ornstein from Darksouls, Souls litterally spawned a new GENRE, and Ornstein and Smough are considered the top fight of the original game. Though Artorias would also be quite the crowd pleaser. Theres also the option of using the main character from the original game, just a hollow in a suit of Knight armor. Or even include different armors, playing in Smough's thick armor would be hilarious.
What do you think? Any of these three have a chance in bippy to get into Smash Ultimate? Who do you think might make it, and why?
Explain to me why everyone has completely forgotten Goku? Funanimation themselves tweeted asking for him!!!!
Give this game we are impatient for plz plz plz! I need it!!
Awesome we got Daisy! she's underrated
I wonder if Sakurai could added another Sonic Stage called Frog Forest Zone from Sonic Heroes because when I played this stage I actually see battlefield and omega platform from there plus the theme music is outstanding tbh and btw it could be a intense battle between Sonic and Shadow to see who is the fake hedgehog or the fastest hedgehog in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate because I usually see both Sonic and Shadow going against each other in the forest on both games Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Heroes but I just hope Frog Forest Zone could be the next new stage on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
All right! Let's do this!!! Pikachu!
Waluigi is not there
Technically fortnite can be in this which scares me but other than that I am really REALLY RRRRREEEEEEAAAAAALLLLLLYYYYY exited for this masterpiece of a game.
after that direct.... i’m so excited for this! looks amazing!
I'm glad that they added snake
I need this game, a super good game.
what a game Kirkby is really good
kirby is a top top fighter which surprised me not Kirkby. lol
Not really played it much yet but so far it’s great.
Jesus has been reincarnated as a video game. All hail your lord and savior SSBU aka jesus!
Amazing. I can still say aftermonths and over 350 hours, the best ame i have ever played
best. fighting. game. ever!!!
N64 Fox for life
Min Min for the Win Win!
Another great game. I suck at this game but I still think it is great fun. Prefer this game on regular switch over switch lite due to the fact it is a multiplayer game. Spirit is fun but this game is meant to be played with other people.
YOU BETTER START PUTTING POKEMON LIKE RILLABOOM OR CINDERACE IN DE GAME OR I SUE!
Did you try/buy Sephiroth he's the coolest villain ever! I just need Terry & Hero and ver. 10.1.0
@happygamer nah! maybe wauluigi
@LatsaSpege my sis loves min min
@zLiNkcrAzY Good for you
I love the roster but I can do without some of them!
Who do you guys main? I main Samus.
@Yoshibros222 I'm a Joker main.
Sakurai does need more help from others; but the scale should remain the same and could be improved upon with the right vision. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is the absolute best in the franchise; they should finally add Waluigi as a playable character along with a few others. Nothing is impossible; everything is possible. Make it happen Nintendo and Sakurai. #Smashbros 4 Life
The sheer spectical of this installment is breathing taking and just overall awesome. You could tell Sakurai put his heart and soul into making this game, the Pros EASILY outwiegh whatever Cons this game has.
It is called Super Smash Bros "Ultimate" for a reason.
Best ever game of Nintendo Switch! LOADS of characters, stages and stuff! But, one thing I do NOT like about this game... Krystal is an Assist Trophy guest! : ( She was SO close to being a proper playable fighter. So close. ^^' :/ I even once hoped she could become DLC playable as a possible alternative, but it didn't happen that way either, now that both Fighters Pass volumes are fulfiled. How will she ever make it into Smash one day? What are Mr. Sakurai's instincts for that, then? Does Nintendo, or someone at Nintendo, still might have liking to Krystal and plan on bringing her back into Star Fox? Who really knows.
This game was the first game in the Switch that I truelly mastered. I beat my teacher who played it sence he was a kid. I have unlocked all characters, not counting DLC. I’m collecting the stuffed Animals of all the players. When I think about games I love ,only two come to mind: Super Mario Oddysey, and this.
I am so thankful they put the hero in dragon quest on smash ultimate when I saw that I was like oh my God I’m so happy that the hero from dragon quest is in it I’ve been playing him a lot and it’s been really fun I love smash ultimate
