Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. franchise has been mostly a multiplayer affair, where players duke it out against each other to try and emerge the winner. However with the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo seems to be trying a different tactic and will be introducing a “World of Light” adventure mode to the game.

The trailer above shows the entire Smash Bros. roster banding together to fight off the invasion of Hands, but they seem to all get defeated, save for Kirby who seems to be the only one who survives. From what we can tell, clones of the Smash Bros. roster are created with evil spirits entering those bodies to control them, and presumably you will have to defeat all of them to restore everyone back to the way they were.

At its core despite it being a story/adventure mode, it still retains the Smash Bros. mechanics, where players will have to fight against the CPU in battles along the way. As you defeat them, it seems that you rescue your friends in the process, which ultimately should allow you to unlock the entire roster, or at least most of it. It looks like it could be fun and a change of pace for those who don’t necessarily want to play against other players or who might want a break from competitive multiplayer.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is currently set for a release on the 7th of December for the Nintendo Switch.
