About

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the fifth game in its franchise. It is also the first game in its series to be released for Nintendo Switch.

Premise

The series is a crossover of characters from various video game franchises, such as The Legend of Zelda, Pokemon, Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario, Metroid, and Mega Man, among many others. Their famous protagonists fight each other on an arena. In accordance with its name, the game is the “ultimate” installment of the series, in that it offers the players all the characters ever featured in Super Smash Bros. The game also introduces five new characters, most famously, Castlevania's Simon Belmont.

Gameplay

Unlike most fighting games, Super Smash Bros. series is built around knocking opponents out of the arena rather than lowering their health bars. However, the damage meter increases the character's chances to be knocked out. Each fighter has a limited number of lives and loses one when he or she is knocked out. The player is eliminated when he or she loses all lives.

Multiplayer

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate includes several competitive multiplayer modes. Besides the traditional versus mode, there are several new modes not featured in the previous games. These include Tournament (the playoff mode for 32 players), Smash Squad (team multiplayer), Smashdown (a mode in which the defeated characters are eliminated).

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reviews and comments

One of the happiest days of my life was when Banjo was revealed
«Blew my mind»
the content is so fucking great the gameplay meh it s slow and it privilege anticipation over reaction i dont like it
«Better with friends»
«OST on repeat»
I write this after completing Adventure mode, trying out most of the other features, and downloading the DOC characters.  

Smash Bros Ultimate is a fantastic multiplayer game, with lots of character choices from across the video game universe.  I have almost no complaints.  I wish the adventure mode was more of a story mode, and I wish the collectibles went a little deeper into the Lord of their respective series.
In concept it's a masterpiece, but a number of mechanical and engine changes from Smash 4 (buffer, etc) and unplayable online make this installment a real disappointment.
12/10 - A MASTERPIECE of the fighting games!
«Just one more turn»
«Can’t stop playing»
This may be my favorite game EVER, and one of my most played. The combat is silky smooth and perfect for all skill levels whether it's at a party with first-timers or competing with friends, this game is welcoming for all. All this not even considering the oogles of characters, stages, music, new mechanics that pushes this series to its absolute limits.
While the online functions can be laggy, nothing beats this game for a good old group smash fest.
«Just one more turn»
I feel i'm one of the few people who isn't a huge fan of this one. I am a massive fan of the last installment but in my opinion the lack of singleplayer content really brings this down. The story mode 'World of light' which i was hoping to be a sucessor to the very fun 'Subspace Emissary' from Brawl., ended up being abysmal and very dissapointing. While it is amazing how they brought every character back aswell as some very cool new ones such as Ridley and K Rool, i also feel the bar has been lowered more so than Smash 4 which was infamous for adding alot of pointless, unneeded characters.
