Back to the character roster, among the returning favourites is Metal Gear Solid’s Snake, who, excitingly, is voiced by the legendary man himself: David Hayter.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is being developed by Nintendo and Bandai Namco. During the E3 direct, series director Masahiro Sakurai detailed a few new mechanics that’ll make it easier for rookie players to join the battle. One of these is the ability to air-dodge, which is particularly helpful when trying to recover from falls.

In perhaps the ultimate fan service, Smash Bros on the Switch will also support the classic GameCube Controller. What’s more, a new Smash-branded Switch version of the controller will be available at some point later, though prices and exact release dates were not announced at E3.

As for amiibo, all existing amiibo will be supported by Super Smash Bros Ultimate, including ones from different series. Meaning you’ll be able to use an amiibo from a different game with Ultimate, so long as it’s for a character included in the roster – ie. your resplendent Wedding Suit Mario will interact with Mario in Smash.

The Switch version of Smash Bros was announced during a Nintendo Direct a few months ago with a cheeky teaser that gave us just a glimpse at the silhouettes of a few characters. The small roster of characters in that early showing seems paltry in comparison to the expansive list that we now know will appear.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate will hit the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
