Created by Matt Espineli and Jordan Ramée on
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is shaping up to be one of the most exciting games coming to Switch. In a surprising, yet bold move, Nintendo announced that the game will include every single fighter that has ever appeared in a Super Smash Bros. game. Full stop. And not only that, the game will also include brand new fighters never seen in the franchise's history, like Samus' archenemy Ridley, Simon and Richter Belmont from Castlevania, and much more.
Across the series' near 20-year history, there have been dozens of fighters. With well over 60 fighters to play in Ultimate, it might seem difficult to keep track of everyone, especially if you don't have the best memory of past games. Luckily, we've got you covered and have compiled every single character for your reference. Nintendo favorites like Mario, Donkey Kong, and Link are all represented, alongside a variety of cult favorites who you can see in the slides ahead.
With each passing announcement, Ultimate just keeps getting bigger in the character department. Nintendo announced the series would begin incorporating a new type of character called Echo Fighters. These Echo Fighters are essentially reskins of previous characters. But it opens up Ultimate to an entire pantheon of additional fighters who can just adopt the moves of older Smash characters. Ultimate is launching with a few Echo Fighters, such as Princess Daisy who is a reskin of Princess Peach. Aside from characters, there's going to be a plethora of new assist trophies, such as Alucard from Castlevania and Rathalos from Monster Hunter. Not to mention there's also going to be bunch of new stages to fight in as well, which you can find in our feature documenting all the new stages in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
