Watch the Final Super Smash Bros

Ultimate cast. In the midst of Ken's reveal as an Echo Fighter of Ryu, Incineroar entered the ring.

We did, however, get a sneak peak of the next addition -none other than the Piranha Plant from the Super Mario series, who's now able to potter around the game's stages in its, eh, plant pot while wreaking havoc on Mario and others.

Kicking off at 7 AM PT/10 AM ET, Nintendo is bringing us a 40 minute Nintendo Direct livestream exclusively about new details for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Some Primary Spirits will also have slots to equip Support Spirits with additional skills.


We'd heard rumors of the so-far unannounced fighters after a convincing Smash Bros leak, which seemed to show a full roster also including Shadow the Hedgehog and a host of other lesser-known Nintendo characters - but they were nowhere to be seen.

A Fighters Pass is the alternative for $24.99 as it comes with all five fighters, stages and all their music tracks. But it does contain a Mii Fighter outfit, and Xenoblade Spirits and music from the Xenoblade Chronicles. But, you'll get lower rewards for unbalanced fights, so try to keep your power level similar to your opponent. Ultimate, which features Kirby as the long hero (and true savior, mind you) standing tall after an attack pretty much wipes out all the characters from the game, turning them into Spirits.

In terms of the single-player mode it's called World of Light, has its own sappy pop song, and is apparently nothing like Subspace Emissary. They also have three different types of abilities in a rock-paper-scissors pattern.
