We'll have a lot more on Ultimate here at Nintendo Wire this week, including a deeper look at mechanics and the stage list. It announced that Fortnite, the massively popular online battle-royale game, is now available for the console, and will be joined by a host of other new third-party games by the end of the year, including Federation Internationale de Football Association 19, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Paladins, and Starlink: Battle for Atlas. But it's the sort of trick Nintendo has been pulling off with regularity.
Nintendo revealed a brand new Mario Party game for Switch during their Nintendo Direct E3 2018 Press Conference.
Ultimate is looking to be the biggest and baddest entry the franchise yet as Masahiro Sakurai and his team have made it a point to include every character that has made a Super Smash appearance thus far. The lineup also features characters previously available as third-party DLC on the Wii U and 3DS, like Bayonetta and Ryu.More news: How to have tough conversations about mental health

In classic Nintendo Direct fashion, a jam-packed sizzle reel hyped up games coming to Switch in the near future (if they aren't out already). Ultimate. Why Ultimate? Because it will feature every single character that's ever been in a Smash Bros. game. And all the old stages are back, albeit with a bit of a facelift. After all, if it ain't broke. Final smash attacks have been reworked for some of the characters, such as Sonic, Zelda, and Pac-Man, and on the whole, they've been given more straight-to-the-point animations, which bring players back to the fight more quickly.
1716: If you like sizzle reels, Nintendo has long one for you running down all the biggest and best games coming to Nintendo Switch in the coming months. And, in short, it looks great. One of the games shown off Super Mario Party. Yes, this means you can play as Mario in his dapper white wedding suit from Odyssey and Link in his blue Breath of the Wild tunic. Ultimate, Nintendo has some good news for you. With a December release date, that gives Nintendo plenty of time before the game hits shelves and more than enough time to knock it out of the park. Complete with an epic reveal trailer we've come to expect from Smash, Samus Aran's arch-nemesis is on the roster, complete with an amiibo.
