Each time a new version is released, Super Smash Bros. offers more and more characters to battle with from different franchises. An under-rated benefit of the game is discovering different franchises that aren't just the main faces of Nintendo. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch is no exception, with a large amount of both the best games on Switch and some lesser-known games represented. Take a look at all the franchises you will see within the game and their latest title.
Only in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will you take someone out as an adorable Villager or the lovable dog Isabelle. If you need to retreat from all the battle and relax for a bit, Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a whole island waiting for you.
Get away from it all on an island all your own. Meet your adorable animal neighbors and help build up your island's reputation to bring in K.K. Slider to perform for you all!
Get a taste of what the ARMS fighters are like when you play Min Min in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Her cute personality and those of the other fighters are shown so well in their origin game, ARMS. Test your skills in a different kind of fighting game and see who is your favorite.

Banjo-Kazooie were a later addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but they showed up with a bang. Unfortunately this is their only appearance on the Switch.
