While Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge and packs in nearly every character, stage, and track from past Smash Bros. games, there are a few features that won’t make the cut: custom moves and equippable items.
As GameSpot learned during a recent demo of the game, the custom moves system from the Wii U and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. won’t be making a return in the latest entry in the series. These moves, which could be acquired in Smash Run and other modes, granted characters slightly different special attacks and let players have a small degree of customization on their favorite fighters. Equippable items, which could customize character stats, will also not be returning.
Presumably, the gap left by these two features will be filled by Spirits and Spirit Mode, an all-new mode used to give Nintendo characters that didn’t make the roster a presence in the game. Your fighters can equip Spirits, level them up, and add support Spirits to your main Spirit to gain different effects. Spirits also replace Trophies as collectibles.
If you’re really missing custom moves, though, there’s one fighter that can be customized even more: the Mii Fighter. These representations of your Mii can be dressed up in different costumes and also granted different special attacks depending on class.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches on December 7th for Nintendo Switch.
