Nintendo Fans Hilariously Protest Waluigi's Snub in SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE

Nintendo Fans Hilariously Protest Waluigi's Snub in SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE

The new game is called Super Smash Bros.

As ever, competitive gaming is just as big a focus of Smash as casual slugfests, with Sakurai detailing a wealth of changes to refine, speed up and rebalance the game. Is it best played in the most chaotic ways possible, or drilled down to its core as a competitive eSport? Sakurai also hinted online battles may be coming in the future. Ultimate is being developed in a collaboration between Nintendo, Sora Ltd, and Bandai Namco Entertainment, the same development team as the last entries in the series: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.

The 2-in-1 Ice Climbers are back, the Pokémon Trainer now comes in male and female versions, there are eight different Animal Crossing Villagers, Bayonetta has Rodin as an assist trophy and, yes, Solid Snake is voiced by original actor David Hayter.

As for newcomers, we saw the moveset of the Inklings for the first time. Interestingly enough, just like in Splatoon, they have an ink gauge next to their icon that has to be constantly refilled by switching to squid form.

'It's my honor' to meet Kim
The US wants North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons in an irreversible manner that can be verified by the global community. He explained that he gave the North Korean official Trump's book , "Art of the Deal", while he was in North Korea.

The Star's Raju Mudhar is in Los Angeles for the year's biggest video game convention, filing daily updates on the biggest news of the day. As expected, her moveset looks very similar to the Peach moves we've been using for years. Also, Nintendo said that the legendary pokemon Mew will come with the Pokeball as a bonus. It was a change that I appreciated and made a lot of sense. Mario now enlists the help of Cappy from Super Mario Odyssey, and Link dons his blue tunic from Breath of the Wild. He's finally playable and he's super fun to play as.

The new game features a directional air dodge, which those familiar with Melee know is a necessary component to "wave dashing", or air dodging into the ground immediately upon jumping, at an angle, causing a character to skid varying distances based on their own personal physics in the game. Well, it turns out a little bit of both.

There were a few noticeable visual differences in Ultimate's reveal. So, you can stress out with strangers or with your closest friends. New level mechanics will also feature in the new kitchens, including portals, moving walkways and controllable platforms. Furthermore, Final Smashes across the board have been shortened to allow players to return to the action as fast as possible. The screen now zooms in right from the start of overtime, with deadly flames boxing the fighters in. Even more exciting is the news that the latter, along with all its DLC, will be already available to purchase today. A new GameCube controller was shown off during the presentation as well.
