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, releasing December 7, 2018 in all regions it is being 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.


Smash Bros. Ultimate contains every single character from the past four games, including six Fire Emblem characters: Marth, Roy, Ike, Robin, Lucina, and Corrin, as well as Chrom making his playable debut as an echo fighter of Roy. Lyn also returns as an assist trophy.

Confirmed playable cast

Characters making their Super Smash Bros. debut in this game are listed in bold. Characters who are officially considered full clones (aka "echo fighters") are marked with an ε. Characters who need to be unlocked are marked with a ‡. Only the eight starter characters or the full roster from the original Super Smash Bros. will be unlocked by default (as of yet it is unclear which), with all other characters needing to be unlocked. However, unlocks will not be as slow as in previous games.


All three Fire Emblem stages from past Super Smash Bros. games are confirmed to appear: Castle Siege from Smash Bros. Brawl, Arena Ferox from Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and Coliseum from Smash Bros. for Wii U.


One item from the Fire Emblem series is confirmed to appear.

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. At least one Fire Emblem character is confirmed to be available as an Assist Trophy.
