Nintendo shows off Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Fortnite for Switch

We've rounded up the five most exciting announcements to come from the Nintendo Direct E3 2018 event. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch - the newest installment in the 19-year-old franchise - will bring back every single playable character ever featured in the games. Ultimate is being developed in a collaboration between Nintendo, Sora Ltd, and Bandai Namco Entertainment, the same development team as the last entries in the series: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. The new character, Samus Aran's dragon foe Ridley, is even something Smash fans have been spreading rumors about for more than a decade. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch will be released on December 7.

There's some under-the-hood changes, such as more damage during one-on-one battles, and updated graphics. Even better, it's free-to-play. With Nintendo Switch, players can throw down whenever and wherever they like in Handheld or Tabletop mode while enjoying online play.

The Switch has also become a thriving home for indie games, and Hollow Knight, Overcooked 2 and Killer Queen Black were also given a piece of the spotlight.

Guess who is coming to Nintendo Switch next year and not as a spin-off title? There are over 80 mini-games in the title, making use of the unique characteristics of the Switch in many different ways. Another change of note is support for all Smash Bros. The game takes place on Fódlan, where the Church of Seiros exercises great power over the land and its people.
