Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Japanese: 大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズ SPECIAL Great Melee Smash Brothers Special) is a fighting video game for the Nintendo Switch, released December 7, 2018 in all regions it was released in.

As with other games in the franchise other than the first game, it features characters from the Fire Emblem series participating in the game alongside those of other Nintendo franchises.

Characters

Smash Bros. Ultimate contains every single character from the past four games, including six Fire Emblem characters: Marth, Roy, Ike, Robin, Lucina, and Corrin; in addition to these, Chrom makes his playable debut as a clone of Roy, and Byleth makes their playable debut as a downloadable fighter. Lyn also returns as an assist trophy, and the Black Knight and Tiki debut as new assist trophies.

Playable cast

Only the eight starter characters from the original Super Smash Bros. will be unlocked by default, with all other characters needing to be unlocked. However, the Mii Fighters are instead available via customization, and unlocks will be much faster and easier than in previous games.

Characters making their Super Smash Bros. debut in this game are listed in bold. Characters who are officially considered "echo fighters" (a subcategory of clones) are marked with an ε. Characters who are available from the start are marked with a ‡. Characters available for purchase separately through downloadable content are marked with a §, and downloadable characters who are not presently available in the games are also listed in italics. Characters who are available via customization are marked with an asterisk.

Marth

Marth returns from the previous titles. His voice in the Japanese version was redone (though keeping the same actor, Hikaru Midorikawa),[1] and his voice in other versions is now in English.[2] His design was changed somewhat to match New Mystery of the Emblem.

Lucina

Chrom is a new character. He is an "echo fighter" of Roy, though he has a unique final smash, called "Awakening Aether", in which he performs Aether, and a different up special attack, which resembles Ike's (though it isn't exactly the same).

Ike

Ike returns from the previous titles. He now has his Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn designs as alternate costumes, with the former being the default. He has different voice clips between the two variants as well (they sound only slightly different in English, but are noticeably different in Japanese),[3][4] and he is now voiced by Greg Chun in English, replacing Jason Adkins.[5]

Robin

Byleth makes their playable debut as the fifth downloadable fighter.

Stages

All three Fire Emblem stages from past Super Smash Bros. games appear: Castle Siege from Smash Bros. Brawl, Arena Ferox from Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and Coliseum from Smash Bros. for Wii U. An additional stage, Garreg Mach Monastery, was released alongside Byleth.

Items

One item from the Fire Emblem series appears.

Assist Trophies

Assist Trophies are non-playable characters who can be summoned temporarily into a battle using the Assist Trophy item, in order to aid their summoner. Three Fire Emblem characters are available as Assist Trophies.

Collectibles

Spirits

Replacing trophies from previous titles, Spirits are new collectibles depicting characters from a host of iconic franchises. These Spirits can be used to grant fighters extra abilities, relating to the character the Spirit depicts. The Spirits are divided into four types. The Fire Emblem: Three Houses spirits were added as DLC alongside Byleth.

Fighter Spirits

These Spirits represent the playable fighters. They cannot be equipped for battle and can only be viewed in the menu. There are 12 for the Fire Emblem series.

Primary Spirits

These Spirits are equitable spirits that will boost the user's attack and defense. They are further divided into four categories: Attack, Shield, Grab, and Neutral. There are 49 for the Fire Emblem series.

Support Spirits

These Spirits can be equipped with Primaries to boost certain aspects of the user, like allowing them to heal over time, strengthening their magic attack, or start the battle with an item like the Killing Edge. There are 30 for the Fire Emblem series.

Master Spirits

These are unique Spirits found in the World of Light campaign. Instead of equipping them, defeating them in battle will allow the player to use their facilities to buy items or train Spirits. There are two for the Fire Emblem series.

  • Anna (runs a shop)
  • Ryoma (runs the Demon Style dojo)

Music

There are fifty-two tracks from the Fire Emblem series in Smash Bros. Ultimate, plus four character victory themes.

The following tracks are not present in the sounds menu:

  • Fire Emblem Victory (conjectural title): Taken from Brawl and Smash 4, but it is edited so that the tempo is slightly faster, and additionally the tempo is sped up further near the end. This brief portion of the Fire Emblem Theme is used as Marth, Roy, Chrom (prior to 3.0.0), and Ike's victory fanfare.
  • Fire Emblem Awakening Victory (conjectural title): A brief portion of "Id (Purpose)". Used as Lucina, Chrom (after 3.0.0), and Robin's victory fanfare.
  • Fire Emblem Fates Victory (conjectural title): A brief portion of "Lost in Thoughts All Alone". Used as Corrin's victory fanfare.
  • Fire Emblem: Three Houses Victory (conjectural title): A brief portion of "The Edge of Dawn (Seasons of Warfare)". Used as Byleth's victory fanfare.
