Nintendo’s most recent Direct presentation focused solely on Smash, and for good reason: Smash is good. People want Smash. It’s the ultimate Smash Bros. experience, so calling it Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was a good call on Nintendo’s part, in my opinion. With the news Castlevania’s Simon Belmont and his descendant Richter are joining the fray, along with Chrom, Dark Samus, and King K.Rool December seems like it will never get here.
But that means you have plenty of time to prepare your body (and your gaming station) for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. entry on Switch. For starters Nintendo, being the savvy company that it is, is reissuing Smash-themed GameCube controllers with a Switch adapter. With every character ever returning to Smash, there are going to be some people climbing out of the woodwork to get back into the action. This list should help you welcome in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate future in which we all soon will live.
