Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. franchise contains video game characters from a variety of games and publishers. Now, we imagine that Nintendo probably has a ton of ideas as to what kind of characters they want in the game, and that they might not necessarily be successful with all their requests.
Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. franchise is one of the more popular fighting games in gaming history. It has spawned multiple titles and variants over the years, and in more recent times, Nintendo released Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the latest title in the franchise that also possibly has its biggest roster ever.
Throughout gaming history, there have been many fighting games that have been released. Some of them have gone on to become classics, some of them have just faded into obscurity. There have been a handful of franchises that have endured over the years, and one of them is Nintendo’s Super Smash series.
After an early leak in which an official Overwatch Nintendo Switch carrying case was spotted on Amazon, it was later confirmed that Overwatch would indeed be coming to the Switch. This makes it the second Blizzard game to arrive for Nintendo’s latest console which is also an indication of how well the Switch is doing.
Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features a roster that is mostly filled with characters from its various franchises. However, it has also included characters from non-Nintendo games, which is why we can’t say that it would be too surprising to learn that in an upcoming DLC pack for the game, it could feature characters from SNK.
Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series is widely-regarded as one of the best mashups as far as fighting games are concerned. The franchise has not only brought a ton of Nintendo characters from varying franchises together, but it has also brought in characters from non-Nintendo games.
Ahead of the Nintendo Switch reveal from back in 2017, it was reported that Nintendo was looking into ways to integrate VR to the console. It was later proven to be true when a couple of months ago, Nintendo launched the Labo VR kit which kind of brought VR to the Switch console system.
Do you think you have what it takes to create the “perfect” stage for a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fight? If you do, then you might be interested to learn that in a recent Nintendo Switch commercial for the game, it was spotted in the background a “Stage Builder” mode. The mode has yet to be officially announced, but it seems like an upcoming feature.
Nintendo’s amiibo figurines have actually proven themselves to be quite the commodity item as they usually get sold out as soon as they go on sale. For those unfamiliar, amiibos act as collectible figurines but at the same time also allow gamers to unlock additional features within a game by tapping the amiibo with their Nintendo console.
The Super Smash Bros franchise has typically drawn from Nintendo’s own franchises and also games that are popular on its platform, but we have also seen how it has pulled in character from other games. Now according to the latest rumors from Japanese website 5Channel (via Game Rant), we could be looking at some surprising additions.
We know that Nintendo has stated that they have plans to release DLCs for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the future. These DLCs are expected to contain new characters that will be added to the roster, new stages, and new music. In what order they will be released remains is anyone’s guess, but it seems that a recent datamine might have revealed some information.
Now that Nintendo has effectively announced the end of the Nintendo Creators Program (which will happen by the end of the year), it means that if you wanted to upload videos of yourself playing a Nintendo game and monetize it on YouTube, you can go ahead and do so without worrying about Nintendo crashing your party (within reason, of course).
From what we can tell, Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has proven to be a smashing success. However if there is one main criticism that many seem to have, it would be with the multiplayer feature of the game where it seems that many gamers are complaining of how laggy it is.
It goes without saying that many were expecting a lot of good things from Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and so far it looks like the game has delivered as many are reporting that the game is selling really well. The latest numbers come courtesy of Famitsu (via Gematsu) in which apparently the game sold 1.23 million copies in the first three days of availability.
