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.

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. Lyn also returns as an assist trophy, and the Black Knight and Tiki debut as new assist trophies.

Confirmed 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' availability is still not known, 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 need to be unlocked are marked with a ‡. Characters who will be available for separate purchase through downloadable content are marked with a §, and downloadable characters who are not presently available in the games are also listed in italics. Characters with an unknown availability 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

Items

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 three Fire Emblem characters are confirmed to be available as an Assist Trophy.

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. Below is the currently known list of Fire Emblem series spirits.
