Alongside the confirmation that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's single-player Classic mode will be returning, it was also revealed that the game will feature some brand new multiplayer mode styles.

The first of these is Squad Strike. In this mode, players can choose to participate in 5-on-5 or 3-on-3 skirmishes, with each player using either five or three consecutive fighters in one battle. When one of your characters is knocked out, you'll move onto the next, creating a tag-like system that will force you to master several different characters.

Another new mode that centres around the idea of being strong with multiple fighters, is Smashdown. In this mode, players choose their character as normal, entering a fight to see who comes out on top. When the match is over, players choose another fighter to play with for the next round, but any character that has already been used previously becomes unavailable. Players can keep going until the entire roster has been used up, and selection tactics could play a big part in winning this mode. Do you choose someone you're strong with, or pick someone that your opponent usually uses, in the hopes of throwing them off course?


On top of this, it was also announced that Tourney mode will be back in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Up to 32 players can participate in this mode, making it ideal for parties or events with a lot of people. Or just for an epic night in with a couple of friends if you prefer.
