As promised, details surrounding the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for Switch have been shared during the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 live stream, and it's all very tasty indeed.

The game will be called Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and will amazingly feature every single character we've ever seen before in the series, whether they were a main fighter or one introduced through DLC. On top of this, Daisy and a female option for the Pokémon Trainer have been added to the series, as well as - in an unbelievable turn of events - Ridley from the Metroid series. Lots of new stages are also set to appear from games such as Splatoon 2 and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Apparently, the way in which you unlock characters has also been streamlined, making it a more enjoyable experience for players, and lots of other changes and refinements have been introduced to perfect the control and final smashes of each of the characters. Eight player battles are also set to return.

The game will release on Nintendo Switch on 7th December - make sure to put that big giant 'X' on your calendars so you don't forget.

Feel free to positively burst with excitement in the comments below.
