"SUPER SMAAAAAASH BROTHERRRRRRRS!"
It has been 19 years since we first heard that announcer introduce us to a game that would go on to be a cultural phenomenon. In that time, the Super Smash Brothers series has added sequels, fighters, stages, game modes…

Super Smash Brothers Ultimate was released on December 7th, 2018, and in the few days its been out, fans have been sharing heavily on social media. The game was touted as including all previous fighters in the series, along with new fighters, bringing the count to 75 playable characters, with more on the way.
At least, we think.

The game is impressive in scope, including over a hundred stages, character customization with spirits, and a few dozen items. The combination of options for a match is astronomical.
One of the touted new features of the game is the story mode that sees all the fighters captured. You must travel along a map and free your friends.
And you always start as Masahiro Sakurai's creation, Kirby.

When Kirby and Smash fans tell Sakurai that ignoring the Kirby games he didn't make is not a good thing. https://t.co/mZuAnzK46M— Bandana Dee Brigade (@Bandana Dee Brigade)1544472056.0

The appeal of the game comes from initially wondering how these characters would interact in fights, but quickly devolves into wanting to win. That said, the opportunity provided to bring characters together is too much.
And who doesn't want Captain N: The Game Master in Smash?
