Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The final Super Smash Blog update for this week is another look at a returning veteran: Pokemon Trainer.

Pokémon Trainer returns with Squirtle, Ivysaur and Charizard. You can choose to play as a male or female trainer!


We’ve got two Super Smash Blog updates today. First up is an assist trophy: Krystal from the Star Fox series.

Here’s her introduction:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Each year when E3 rolls around, it’s accompanied by increased activity at retailers like GameStop. Switch in particular put in work there.

GameStop VP of merchandising Eric Bright mentioned to GamesIndustry that Switch sales doubled during E3 week. Titles like Smash Bros. Ultimate were also highly pre-ordered.

The Smash Bros. Blog has updated with its latest entry for Smash Bros. Ultimate. This time around, the Kongo Falls stage gets the focus.

Here’s an introduction:

Nintendo has posted the next piece of music from Smash Bros. Ultimate. Below we have “City Trial”, a theme taken from Kirby Air Ride.

Noriyuki Iwadare was behind the arrangement. Iwadare has worked on a ton of games throughout his career as a composer, including Space Invaders, Grandia, the Ace Attorney series, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and many more.

Another somewhat unexciting Super Smash Blog update today; it’s a look at the returning veteran Falco:

He’s a talented aerial fighter with amazing jumping ability, but Falco is a bit slower on the ground. His Final Smash is an all-out attack using an unorthodox formation of Arwings!


We’re ending the week of Super Smash Blog updates once again with a look at a returning veteran, Donkey Kong:

His charged punch is one of the strongest attacks in the game! In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, his Final Smash has been updated from Konga Beat to a flurry of punches!


The Smash Bros. Blog has updated with its latest entry for Smash Bros. Ultimate. This time around, two Pokemon are introduced.

Here’s the rundown on Lunala and Solgaleo plus screenshots:

If there’s one character fans have been rallying to be made a playable character in Smash Bros. Ultimate as of late, that’d be Waluigi. After the Switch title was revealed at E3 a couple of weeks ago, some fans were very vocal in expressing their disappointment that he won’t be on the roster. Rather than being playable, Waluigi is an Assist Trophy once again.

Vice caught up with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime and asked him about the situation. Here’s an exchange between the two sides:

Last week, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai published his first column about the game in Famitsu following the game’s proper unveiling at E3. He followed up this week with a second piece.

Sakurai’s latest column addresses the development and production of Smash Bros. Ultimate, some general talk about the future, and more. We have a full translation below.
