Nintendo shows off Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Fortnite for Switch

Nintendo shows off Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Fortnite for Switch

Lucky enough to snag a ticket to the coveted VIP area, we were able to test our mettle against some of the best fighting game players and Twitch streamers - and while we expected to walk away ashamed, the results were surprising.

The newest entry in the Mario Party franchise has finally surfaced. Nintendo put on a brief yet fantastic show this year with plenty of titles on the way such as Octopath Traveller, Fire Emblem: Three Houses and, of course, Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Nintendo opened with mech-tastic action game Daemon x Machina.

With the Switch, that's not an issue, and the company showed a long sizzle reel, showing off several games that are coming including Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Megaman 11 and many more. If you're familiar with the game, you're sure to be excited for this coming "battle between the Aegises" - and for everyone else, this was an anime-tacular trailer rife with cat people, solemn declarations, and cool, combo-centric RPG combat.

Earlier today, Nintendo officially unveiled Super Smash Bros.

Nintendo acknowledged that its decision to include so many fighters from the past meant that there was a limited number of new challenges. Inklings can check their ink level, Cloud's limit meter is displayed, and the Villager can see what's in their pocket.

Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un prepare for Singapore summit
Mr Kim's itinerary was reported in detail, which is a rarity for the state's media, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency. The cancelled meeting was ultimately resurrected, and now the pair are less than a day away from holding historic talks.

Ultimate is also receiving a new type of combatant called an "Echo Fighter". Levels are batshit insane now too, with more moving parts than ever.

Another significant tweak Ultimate is bringing involves the stage and fighter selection process.

Punch-out character Little Mac, for example, excels on flat maps like Final Destination but performs worse on angular maps like Moray Towers.

Introducing the newest and most expansive Super Smash Bros. ever! We picked Fox - a staple character from the beginnings of the franchise - while our partner and frenemies picked fan-favorite Snake and Ridley. Wolf, Ice Climbers and Pokemon Trainer are all back.

Having played a bit myself, I can report that this is very much more Overcooked with a few minor changes.
