The way things look at the moment, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate really lives up to its name. The game offers more than 100 stages, over 800 music tracks and features every single character who ever set foot on the Smash Bros. stage as well as new fighters (hello, Simon Belmont and Splatoon Inklings).

We also know a lot more about new and returning modes coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For example 8-Player Smash will return and is available on all stages. Furthermore, the popular Tourney Mode from earlier installments is back. Last but not least there is the new Smashdown Mode which keeps players from using characters more than once.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will launch on 7th December 2018 for Nintendo Switch. In addition to a Limited Edition which includes a GameCube Controller people who pre-order the game can also benefit from a shiny Steelbook.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Pre-order Steelbook

Pre-order Steelbooks are nothing new when it comes to Playstation and Xbox releases. However, they are much rarer in the Nintendo universe. It is all the more gratifying that the newest installment in the Super Smash Bros. series gets the Steelbook treatment. Everyone who pre-orders the Standard or the Limited Edition at GAME UK* will receive the Super Smash Bros. Steelbook for free. Currently, the Steelbook is up in Europe – not sure if it’ll hit North America.
