When Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Switch arrives on December 7, it will feature the largest unlockable roster of characters in the history of the series. They're bringing back every last character that's ever been included in a previous Smash Bros. game—even old downloadable content characters. These old characters will be joined by new fighters never before seen in a Smash Bros. game, like Inkling from the Splatoon series and Ridley from the Metroid series. Nintendo also promises "faster combat, new items, new attacks, new defensive options, and more."
