Did you know Nintendo just unveiled a new Smash Bros. game for Switch, and that it features every fighter in the history of the series? You say you did know that? Oh, okay.
So, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is going to feature every fighter to ever appear in Nintendo’s fighting game series. That’s fine, but it’s not enough. There could be, and should be, even more fighters.
I love this so much.
Banjo and his partner Kazooie haven’t been in a Nintendo game since 2005’s Banjo-Pilot thanks to complicated intellectual property rigamarole that cropped up when Microsoft acquired Rare in 2002. With a new Smash Bros. coming to the Switch, there’s plenty of speculation about new fighters. Microsoft’s Executive Vice…
Super Smash Bros. is finally coming to the Switch and the announcement is blowing minds. We all knew it was inevitable, but still: Smash Bros.! On the Switch! The race to comb through footage for some clue about who will be in the game has begun.
Libertalia is a good board game about duelling pirates. It can also, with a bit of fiddling, be turned into a recreation of Super Smash Bros.
It was 2am in early September. Yuichiro Takahashi was in his room eating a Crunky chocolate bar, listening to the RWBY soundtrack and staring at the English sentences on his monitor. If anything might help change the Super Smash Bros. Melee scene in Japan, perhaps this would. He pressed publish.

Nobody likes getting trapped in the corner.
This was the scene in the Tropicana Showroom Theater in Atlantic City last night after the day’s Smash Bros. Melee matches had wrapped up as some of the game’s beloved pros tried to resurrect a decades old rivalry between East and West coast players.
Amiibo may look like Smash Bros. trophies, but they don’t act like them—not normally, anyway. One fan has spent two years trying to make that fantasy into more of a reality, and the results are awesome.
Call it a curse. Call it a jinx. Something is currently afflicting a series of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U tournaments. The Saga events are run by a group called 2GGaming in Southern California and are typically named after a player or players who have been flown in to compete. The problem is that, but over the course…
Earlier this morning, two top-five Super Smash Bros. Melee players, Adam “Armada” Lindgren and Jason “Mew2King” Zimmerman, and a well-known Fox player named Danny “UUAA” Diaz got together to do Smash taunts, IRL, for charity. The results are amazing and adorable.

The “super yo-yo glitch” is one of the great mysteries of the competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee community, and now, 11 years after its existence was first rumored, someone has put up a bounty for the person who finally proves it is real.
In many ways, the Wii U was a flop. Passionate modders haven’t given up on the system, however. Instead, many have spent the the last two years breathing new life into the neglected console, hacking new characters, new levels, and new modes into their favorite games. As far as the modding community is concerned,…
America’s team in the Smash Bros. Wii U Crew Battle at Frostbite 2017 had a big lead going into the second half and things looked to be coming up roses until Japan replied with a slew of brutal matches that left many of the game’s top pros bruised and bloodied.
On Wednesday, Super Smash Bros. 4 legend Gonzalo Barrios (“ZeRo”) declared that Bayonetta is the best character in the game right now. Since early last year, Bayonetta has gone from a despised, over-powered monster to a big question mark and, now, apparently, a balanced but elite pick.
The Super Smash Bros. series began on the Nintendo 64, and Daniel “SuPeRbOoMfAn” Hoyt is one of the greatest to ever play the game.
In October, 16-year-old Smash 4 champion Leonardo Perez (“MK Leo”) vowed to claim first prize at Genesis 4, an international Smash tournament in San Jose, California.
