Special edition of 'Smash Ultimate' comes with a GameCube controller

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Returns with Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Way More Info

As quiet as this summer has been for the Nintendo Switch, the fall season should be much more exciting, with Super Mario Party, Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee, and Super Smash Bros. The retro hero will come partnered with his iconic whip, although his look has been slightly altered, and his echo fighter will be Richter Belmont from the same series. Speaking of which, Nintendo also announced a special Limited Edition version of Super Smash Bros.

After today, it's definitely clear that Super Smash Bros Ultimate will be unlike any Smash Bros game we've seen before. Ultimate, but there are new stages in the mix as well. Players will also be given the chance to morph into a 2nd character mid-battle. Melee for the GameCube, according to the Super Smash Bros. wiki. Here, players can pick from a 5-on-5 or 3-on-3 elimination battle. Though it's fairly simple, it's also quite a bit different from the other two standard modes, which focus on earning points through knock outs.

Squad Strike: A team battle mode similar to what's actually found in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. His Final Smash is the Grand Cross, which locks an opponent in an explosive coffin. Once the Final Smash Meter is fully charged, players can unleash a less powerful Final Smash attack.

Tourney Mode: Up to 32 players can participate in Tourney mode, making it great for parties or events with a lot of people.

The Nintendo Switch first added support for GameCube controllers back in October so players with the Wii U's GameCube controller adaptor could use their preferred method on Switch. You can fill any gaps you may have with AI players too, making this a viable mode for smaller groups as well. Training mode is even improved, featuring an exclusive stage that features a grid that helps determine the distance and trajectory of abilities and fighter knockback.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released December 7 on Switch.

Konami stars have appeared as playable character in the cross-over fighting series before, most notably Snake from the Metal Gear Solid franchise, and Mr Belmont will be welcome with open arms.
