When Nintendo announced „Super Smash Bros. Ultimate“ earlier this year, producer Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that every character from the prior four games in the franchise would be returning for the series‘ first entry on the Nintendo Switch. The game will be released on December 7th.
As a result, „Super Smash Bros. Ultimate“ has one of the largest rosters of any fighting game ever made, bringing back more than 60 returning characters, and adding 14 fresh new faces besides. That’s 76 playable characters from across video game history, right out of the box, plus one more coming as a download in early 2019.
If that’s not enough Nintendo recently confirmed that at least five more fighters will be added to „Super Smash Bros. Ultimate“ through February 2020.
Those who have played prior „Smash“ games may recognize that certain characters have similar movesets — like Pit and his evil counterpart, Dark Pit. Nintendo has started calling the copy characters „echo fighters,“ but for the sake of this list, they’ll be counted as individuals. Similarly, the Pokémon trainer controls three different playable Pokémon, and there are three Mii fighters with different fighting styles, so we’ll count them all individually as well.
Here’s every single one of the „Super Smash Bros. Ultimate“ characters, plus the game in which they debuted:
1. Mario – „Donkey Kong“ (1981)
2. Donkey Kong – „Donkey Kong“ (1981)
3. Link – „The Legend of Zelda“ (1986)
