That’s approaching 70 characters for a begin!
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Characters: full roster of playable characters and echo fighters
When you first boot Super Smash Bros Ultimate, you’ll really solely have entry to 12 characters: the unique eight characters from the N64 Super Smash Bros game, plus the 4 additional characters that featured in that game as unlockable fighters. After that, you’ll step by step unlock extra characters as you go, with Nintendo aiming to make it really feel such as you’re continually unlocking a brand new all-star fighter on a regular basis.

The fighter roster is made up of basically two kinds of characters: absolutely fledged common fighters and echo fighters. Echo fighters are essentially ‘clone’ style versions of existing fighters in the game. They’ll have recognizable particular strikes ‘borrowed’ from the remainder of the forged however may even have some distinctive properties to their strikes to assist differentiate them. For occasion, Princess Daisy is in fact Princess Peach’s Echo Fighter, whereas Dark Samus supplies a heavier-hitting tackle Samus’ iconic transfer set. We’ve famous who the echo fighters are beneath.
The essential roster is barely the start, too, as there’ll be non-playable help characters and Pokemon creatures to summon to assist you in battle, plus a slew of levels and gadgets. More on these in a second, nonetheless – first, right here’s the total Smash Ultimate roster:

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Newcomers: all-new characters to Smash
While they’re additionally listed above, we figured it’d be sensible to interrupt out the entire newcomers to Smash as nicely – so listed below are the all-new fighters to the Smash Bros Ultimate roster – plus the place they’re from. Hopefully this listing grows fairly a bit as we method launch…
Daisy (Super Mario Land): After first showing because the princess within the Game Boy spin-off Super Mario Land, Daisy is lastly combating in Smash as Peach’s Echo Fighter. She’ll share related strikes to Peach with barely adjusted transfer properties. Daisy has actually solely had that one main look because the Princess of Sarasaland, a far-flung land away from the Mushroom Kingdom, however Daisy has however change into a staple in Mario spin-offs like Mario Party and the sports activities games – and now she’s able to struggle.
Inkling (Splatoon): The star break-out characters of the Wii U console, the Inklings are fast to make their Smash Bros. debut! Both boy and woman Inkling variants can be found, with 4 of every all sporting distinctive and naturally depraved recent clothes. In Smash the Inkling carries over a key mechanic from Splatoon in that they’ll ink enemies to make them extra susceptible to assaults and are compelled to handle their ammunition by reloading ink by way of turning right into a squid.
Ridley (Metroid): After a lot fan demand, Metroid villain Ridley makes his Smash debut! It was as soon as stated that he’d be too large to battle in Super Smash Bros, however that’s been confirmed false as he joins the Ultimate character roster: he’s nonetheless big, by far the most important fighter, however he does match on the stage! Ridley comes with all of the heavy-hitting strikes you’d anticipate from such an enormous character, together with some nasty grabs that may drag his foes proper the way in which throughout the stage.
Simon Belmont (Castlevania): Simon Belmont was a staple of the basic Castlevania sequence again on the NES and SNES, and like Mega Man and Ryu that makes him an ideal match for the world of Smash. Simon in fact has entry to his iconic whip, but additionally has different basic Castlevania staples like his axe and holy water. His Final Smash sees him imprison his foe in a coffin, due to course it does.
Richter (Castlevania): showing as an echo fighter for Simon Belmont, Richter is one other basic Castlevania sequence becoming a member of the battle in Smash Ultimate. He’s really a direct descendant of Simon, so it makes a variety of sense he’d share some related strikes – particularly since each are within the vampire searching enterprise. He first appeared in Rondo of Blood, which wasn’t on a Nintendo console however later noticed a launch on the Wii Virtual Console.
Dark Samus (Metroid Prime): Dark Samus isn’t really a darkish model of the titular hero of Metroid – in reality, it’s a being of Phazon that has merely determined to take the type of the universe’s best Metroid-killing bounty hunter. In Smash Dark Samus is in fact an echo fighter of normal Samus and seems to make use of heavier hitting however slower, corrupted variations of probably the most iconic strikes of Samus.
King Ok. Rool (Donkey Kong Country): For the longest time Smash followers have complained that Donkey Kong didn’t have a villain in Smash. I imply, that isn’t strictly true – don’t neglect that expensive previous Mario locked up Donkey Kong’s dad and battered him with a bullwhip in Donkey Kong Jr – however that doesn’t imply Ok. Rool isn’t particular. His slapstick, looney tunes fashion of combating is an ideal match for Smash and an excellent rep for Donkey Kong Country – and it’s nice to see a British-designed character within the Smash Ultimate character roster!
Isabelle (Animal Crossing): Isabelle has change into one in every of Nintendo’s famous person icons recently. With Animal Crossing an enormous success on the DS and 3DS and now with a profitable (if barely money-grabbing) cell outing, this little cutesy poodle is definitely one in every of Nintendo’s extra recognizable mascots to extra informal gamers. In Smash, she comes with a extra set barely much like villager, with actions based mostly on her job because the mayor’s assistant in Animal Crossing. Her strikes are much like the Villager in idea, however she’s not an echo fighter – she’s all new!
Incineroar is the final word evolution of one of many fan favourite new starter Pokemon from Pokemon Sun & Moon, and it’s a really completely different type of Pokemon for Smash – big and imposing, Incineroar has strikes that resemble a professional wrestler. They’re all nonetheless based mostly off basic Pokemon strikes that Incineroar can be taught within the games it hails from, however they’ll nonetheless be very acquainted to wrestling followers. This is prone to be a heavy-hitter – and it retains the pattern of representing every Pokemon era in Smash going.
Ken is an echo fighter of Ryu, who in fact joined Smash as one of the vital thrilling new DLC additions again on the Wii U and 3DS. Ken is maybe one of many ‘original’ echo fighters in gaming, given that each one the way in which again in Street Fighter’s authentic outing he was merely a distinct coloration Ryu, however over time he’s been differentiated from Ryu rather a lot. His Smash variant is loyal to this, giving Ken barely completely different normals, a sooner velocity, altered properties on a few of his specials and a singular closing smash.
