The year is getting along at a steady pace, but you know what's even faster? A number of characters in Smash Bros. Ultimate.

This week the game is celebrating the fastest fighters around. The highlighted characters include Sonic the Hedgehog, Captain Falcon from F-Zero, Little Mac from the Punch-Out!! series, Fox McCloud from the Star Fox series and Sheik from The Legend of Zelda.
