The 3 biggest announcements from Nintendo at E3 2018

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Inkling is a less conventional character.

I don't care how long their announced games will take to release, I just want them announced! They can shoot enemies with ink and run them over with a giant roller.

It's a cunning ploy: add the most popular game in the world right now to your platform and make it instantly available. It's going to be fun to play, fun to learn and fun to master. Smaller than you'd expect (meme makers eat your heart out), Ridley is around the same weight as characters like Bowser or Donkey Kong. Inklings can check their ink level, Cloud's limit meter is displayed, and the Villager can see what's in their pocket. As you would have seen in the direct, he's now got an appearance that matches his recent adventures in Breath of the Wild. Link can now choose when to detonate his bombs. When you fly of the screen, a new minimap appears showing the location of all players. One has him dashing forward, grabbing the first player he touches and then grinding them across the stage before throwing them off the edge.

There's some under-the-hood changes, such as more damage during one-on-one battles, and updated graphics. It definitely felt that way, with a three stock match being over in nearly 3 to 4 heavy hits. The latest franchise entry, Super Smash Bros.

The new game features a directional air dodge, which those familiar with Melee know is a necessary component to "wave dashing", or air dodging into the ground immediately upon jumping, at an angle, causing a character to skid varying distances based on their own personal physics in the game.




The same can be said for items, assist trophies and Pokemon. In stock 1-on-1 matches, the score is displayed each time someone is KO'd.

But characters are only one part of the equation, albeit a massive part this time around. Sure there were some other cool Switch announcements like Dragon Ball FighterZ, Fortnite, Overcooked 2, Killer Queen Black, Super Mario Party, Daemon X Machina, and even the new Fire Emblem: Three Houses coming next year.

Beyond the excitement of the complete, encyclopedic roster, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will drop on December 7th only on the Switch. Ultimate seems to live up to its name.

Numerous returning fighters have received new Final Smashes (the Smash Bros. version of an "Ultimate" ability) and mechanic changes.
