New re­lease sure to be Su­per, smash­ing, great!

Sunderland Echo - - Reviews Corner -

If you like Su­per Smash Bros, you are go­ing to love this. Just as we head into the busi­ness end of the video game sea­son with lots on the hori­zon, there has been some ex­cit­ing news for Nin­tendo Switch own­ers.

Launch­ing on De­cem­ber 7 is Su­per Smash Bros. Ul­ti­mate Lim­ited Edi­tion. And if that doesn’t sound ex­cit­ing enough, this ver­sion comes with the game it­self, plus a Smash-branded Game­Cube con­troller and USB adapter that lets play­ers con­nect up to FOUR Game­Cube con­trollers to their Switch.

The rea­sons for that will be ob­vi­ous to any Smash Bros fans but, for those who are per­haps new to all this, the Game­Cube con­troller has been the pre­ferred in­put for pro­level and diehard Smash Bros. play­ers ever since Su­per Smash Bros. Melee came out for Game­Cube in 2001. Each main Nin­tendo con­sole since then has sup­ported the con­troller, as have all non-hand­held in­stall­ments of the Smash Bros. se­ries. The Lim­ited Edi­tion of the game comes in a big black box adorned with an im­age of dozens of fight­ers from the Smash Ul­ti­mate ros­ter, and it looks im­pres­sive and is rem­i­nis­cent of the old SNES box.

Nin­tendo will also be sell­ing stand­alone Smash-themed Game­Cube con­trollers. That’s not the only ex­cit­ing news re­gard­ing Su­per Smash Bros Ul­ti­mate, though. Si­mon and Richter Bel­mont, King K. Rool and Dark Sa­mus will all be avail­able as playable char­ac­ters and there will also be a Mon­ster Hunter boss, stages that trans­form mid-match, and a sound­track with over 800 songs.

Sounds like manna from heaven for but­ton bash­ing, char­ac­ter mash-up, su­per, smash­ing mad­ness.
