In the lead-up to the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Nintendo is updating a daily blog, and it’s giving us sneak peeks at the assist trophies, items, stages, music, and characters we’ll find in the final game.
Nintendo updated similar sites for the launches of past Smash Bros. games, since it’s always fun to get an early glimpse of what’s coming. The blog has been online for a little over a week, and in that time, it’s given updates on Ridley, Daisy, and Mario as playable characters, a peek at the redesigned Battlefield stage, details about the Launch Star and Black Hole items, and a glimpse at two of the game’s assist trophies, Alolan Vulpix and Bomberman.
Another section of the blog adds in samples of the music we’ll hear across the game’s various stages, most of it remixed from past Nintendo games. Currently, that page gives us teasers of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Main Theme, the theme from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, “Vega Stage” from Street Fighter II, “Brinstar Depths” from Metroid, and, most recently, a remix of “Bomb Rush Blush” from Splatoon. All have been touched up and remixed slightly to make them inspiring music to fight to, especially in the case of the Breath of the Wild theme.
The blog seems to be adding two or three updates every day of the work week. Since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is due to release in December, there’s bound to be plenty of content headed our way before the game is officially out.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases on December 7th, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
