Update: ALL daily battles have now been posted, so it's your final chance to influence the vote!
Earlier this month, we launched Smash Battles together with Nintendo UK and Arekkz gaming to celebrate the upcoming fisticuffs simulator coming to Nintendo Switch in December.
Smash Battles will culminate in a live stream tournament taking place at The Loading Bar in London on launch day, December 7th, which you can both get involved in and influence. If you live in the UK (sorry everyone else!) and fancy fighting alongside our own superstar Alex Olney and Alex "Arekkz" Noon, you can sign up for a spot at www.smashbattleslive.com and be in with the chance of winning a fancy limited edition Nintendo Switch. Remember, you'll need to be available next Friday and be able to travel to London.
While only four people will be able to join us to take part in the tournament, we want everyone to get involved and help select the top eight fighters for the contest. We've been posting a daily battle on our Instagram since the launch of the challenge to decide a daily winner based on popularity. We'll then take the top 8 daily winners into the final tournament.
You can vote for as many characters as you like and you can vote on any day until 48 hours before the tournament, so get voting for your main!
It's also worth mentioning that if you live in the London area, you're welcome to join us at the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Launch Party.
The big tournament will be happening at The Loading Bar, which is located in Shepard's Bush, London on the evening of 7th December – this just happens to be the launch day of a rather special Nintendo game, of course - the name of which escapes us right now.
So there you have it, is your favourite character winning its battle? If not, make sure you vote by smashing the like button on Instagram or let us know in the comments below.
Sheik is da best...I don't care what y'all say.
Mario. You need skill to kill
How the hell is Toon Link that popular? He does basically NOTHING that Link/Young Link wouldn't already do?
Yoshi is losing? To Dr. Mario and Dark Samus?! You voters have no taste.
Haha, always interesting to see what the Internet thinks!
Pichu > all others. Put the pilot Pichu goggles on and you become an ELECTRIC GOD.
My man Ganon winning #12 . Faith in the Smash Community is restored a bit.
@Greator My main! A little sad he's been pitted against Kirby, one of my other favorites.
Too bad I don't use Instagram. But I hope Link wins; he's the best fighter. Ness is great too.
Living the Link life since 1999
How are we supposed to vote for characters that we haven’t been able to play with such as Isabelle and Ridley?
I honestly didn’t expect to see Link trump everyone else, and I am even more surprised Toon Link is beating everyone else (Link included).
Jigglypuff last? Hasn't anyone watched the cartoon to see the consequences of getting Jigglypuff mad? Do you want your faces covered with doodles?!?!?
Peach and Daisy
So this is an instagram-only thing? eh, pass. I don't really care to make an account there.
No Mewtwo, and Ness beaten by Toon Link? This is why I don't trust you redcoats
I can already see most of these results are blasphemous
I’ll stay out of this poll. No piranha plant so what even is the point? Wish he was available at launch!
@ShadJV if they put Pirahna plant in, it would be too one sided.
@SonicMos you underestimated the power of the aura!
Kirby for the win
Wow, no character broke 1k in the last one, what's up with that?
Kirby! Kirby! Kirby!
Mario and Link are my all time nr1
Now i can "maybe" add simon belmont, with him smash is complete haha
Oh noes Mega Man, Ness and Kirby beaten. Payback time. I SHALL AVENGE THEM! ONWARD! FOR GLORY MY SMASHERS!
Waluigi FTW! > other SMASH bros charactors.
@Kinoen they were only posted a few hours ago new one every day.
For no particular reason other than choosing the fighter I'd be most likely to play with of the 4 per grouping...
2) Ice Climbers
5) Little Mac
7) Mr. Game & Watch
8) Lucas (Wanted to say Chrom but got to feel him out first!)
10) Mega Man (Sorry "this time" Link!)
11) Palutena (Sorry "this time" Fox!)
13) Diddy (Would've been Richter otherwise!)
14) King DeDeDe
Pre-emptively, I'm saying Piranha Plant, even though I haven't played the game yet.
Wait are those new Amiibos as well?
Did people really vote Dark Pit over Snake? Lmao
King Dedede in first place. No surprises there.
I am unable to tink of someting more to say
King Dedede 786! There is just no sense to this world.
Come on, we all know Waluigi takes Frist place in every smash pole. Blatant discrimination I say.
Snake? SNAKE!! SNAAAAAKKKEEE!!
My boy lost! Fission mailed.
Why all these characters?? We havent seen 90% of them on a Nintendo over 20yrs!!
All links, Shulk, Roy, Chrom
No Princess Zelda love?
Originally, she was my gag-character, because all other Zelda characters were taken (I hate doubles).I just ended up getting good with her.
... actually still got the Belt, amongst my small circle 😏
Yes! Lliterally all my mains are winners:
Dark/regular Samus #closesecondbest
and even Young Link #superoldmain
@the4seer I have intense hatred of Double battles as well. My little brother knew I was good at Brawl (this was years ago BTW) so he went through a phase where he just played all the characters I did. Soooooo annoying!!!!!
@Nintendoblows WELLLLLLLLLl, technically Ganondorf and Wolf are still fresh
with Star Fox Zero and Breath of the Wild
@Nintendoblows your name makes it clear why you’re spending your time on a Nintendo news website! 😂
I’m probably the only person on here that likes or cares for Little Mac lol.
@Paulywally One of two, my friend.
No piranha plant😡 start the piranha plant rebellion 🗡
King K. Rool and Ridley are the only newcomers that I really care for, so...
(not counting Piranha)
Little Mac & Ness, prolly Piranha Plant
So...... who won? Is it on a different post?
Did anyone post who won this?
