Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, like everyone*, is here. Now for $60, you can play with 74 of the most famous Nintendo and fighting characters that there are. But is the video game made by Masahiro Sakurai worth it? The short answer is yes.

Smash Ultimate plays with mechanics that are a combination of what was most enjoyed from the other games in the Smash Bros. roster. With the characters from brawl, directional air-dodging and speed of Mele, and supported by graphics even crisper than that of smash 4, Ultimate, in my humble opinion, is the single best and mechanically well balanced of all the Super Smash Brothers games to date.

The first big feature of this game, is the single player campaign. Ultimate is the second of all 5 of the Smash Bros titles that has a single player campaign. The last being the legendary and fan loved subspace emissary. Which without uttering a single word, told the story of a world lost to dark influences, and fighters joining together to defeat a common enemy.

The newest campaign of Ultimate, compares rather nicely to that of Brawl, with a few major changes. Where Brawl Subspace Emissary is an action/story driven campaign, World of Light plays far more as an RPG. Instead of running around and exploring a world while fighting enemies, you run around an over-world, and only fight enemies whom you encounter.

Playing similar to a game such as Pokemon, Ultimate allows you to unlock different characters by fighting them. Unlike Pokemon, instead of picking what attacks your characters use, you attack and fight the different characters. The most RPG esck element introduced in the game itself is the new use of “spirits”.

Spirits are something you equip to your character and allows you to get added bonuses and features to your character, also being a system that you can play in a special version of smash, it comes as a welcome replacment to custom characters.

Overall, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a game worthy of the Smash Bros title, one that has clean mechanics, solid gameplay,  and is fun for hours on end.

*This is a pun based upon the “Everyone is here” used in the games marketing.
