Nintendo hosted a Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this morning, the final before its release. The Direct revealed the final two fighters found in the main game as Ken from Street Fighter, and Incineroar from the Pokemon series. The Direct also detailed new amiibo figures, and several new modes for the upcoming game.
The latest mode, Spirits Mode, replaces collectible trophies in the series, and will serve as support for players through the story mode with hundreds of interesting characters to be found. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches on the Nintendo Switch on December 7th.
Nintendo has confirmed that the Super Nintendo: Classic Edition is not only a real thing, but is launching later this year, on September 29th, for $79.99! In the box, you get an AC Adapter, HDMI Cable, and two wired SNES Classic Controllers. The system features 21 titles, including the previously unreleased StarFox 2, which is an absolute shock to the system.
