Sorry, but this is obviously fake. George Costanza is not a character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He is an assist trophy ONLY. Please do not troll on this webpage.
Oh man I was really hoping this song would be in there, but no. :(
Whoops! I did.
Thanks, everybody, for joining in with this liveblog.
You know, it looks like they’re jumping straight in to Smash Bros. discussion, so let’s wind things down with this liveblog. I can assure you all that Kotaku’s staff will be watching Treehouse Live all week long, and if and when Nintendo springs some big surprise on everyone during its stream, we’ll get the news…
And we’ve jumped immediately to Treehouse Live. Let’s hang out for just a second to see if Bill Trinen announces a new game in the next couple minutes.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. December 7, 2018.
Feel the awesome power of the Switch, Maddy.
Ridley. It’s Ridley. There. Are you all happy now?
That thing you wanted is happening.
One more new character announcement.
You can transfer your FP from the Wii U version.
All Super Smash Bros. Amiibo are compatible. All fighters’ current Amiibo figures are supported even if they’re a different series. They work the same way - you add in a “FP” or “figure player” by tapping them.
“We’ve got something special for your playing pleasure,” Sakurai says. It’s a GameCube controller. Sold separately.
You can smash attack by pressing A and B buttons.
A “perfect shield” occurs when you release the shield button. “You’ll need to time it carefully.”
Damage dealt now increases in 1 on 1 battles, to help “ensure action is well-paced.”
Mobility during Air Dodge has improved. But if you dodge too much you’ll be wide-open to attack.
All stages have both Battlefield and Omega forms. “These versions hover above an abyss.” Sizes are all the same, so “savor the simplicity.”
New Pork City (hey, you know what OTHER GAME had...). Wrecking Crew. Tortimer Island. Moray Towers. Great Plateau Tower.
Stages. Spirit Train. Peach’s Castle. Frigate Orpheon. Green Hill Zone.
There will also be a “Fake Smash Ball” item that looks almost like a Smash Ball, but is actually a bomb that you really don’t want to hit.
