Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Next Tournament Focuses On Characters From The 90s
Super Smash Bros goes after our 90s nostalgia.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have a special 90s-themed tournament this weekend that will limit the range of fighters available to those who debuted in the 90s. The available stages will also be pulled from 90s games.
This will disqualify plenty of fighters and stages who were first introduced before or after the 90s, but you'll be able to use Sonic, Pikachu, Cloud, King K. Rool, Mewtwo, Sheik, Ridley, and many others. A full list has not been made available, but long-time Nintendo fans can look forward to representing their favorite games of the era.
Players will be able to unlock Spirits, depending on their performance in the tournament. It begins on February 21 (in Japan, at least--start time will vary depending on your timezone), and will run for three days.
The original Super Smash Bros. is, itself, an iconic 90s game, releasing in 1999. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the fifth mainline game in the series.
