We had the chance to play a bit of the game during Nintendo’s E3 2018 Tournament Events, and the fun and simple gameplay has returned to allow new and old players to fight each other. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

The game is developed by Nintendo, Sora, Ltd. and Bandai Namco Studios with Masahiro Sakurai as the director.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be available for the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
