You can't have a mashup of Nintendo characters without including the poster-child, Mario, and his Mushroom Kingdom friends. Playable fighters from this world include Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Bowser, Dr. Mario, Rosalina and Luma, Bowser Jr., and Piranha Plant. Outside Super Smash Bros. Ultimate one of the best Mario games on Switch to enjoy is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury.

Tactical Espionage Action Metal Gear Solid

Snake seems like he'd be the kind of guy to be able to take on anyone that comes his way with all his gear and training. So it makes it that much more humorous to see him lose to a Jiggly Puff. Snake has come from Metal Gear Solid, the most recent of these games being Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D for the 3DS.


Kazuya Kirby

The latest addition to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate family is Kazuya from Tekken. There hasn't been a Tekken game on Nintendo since 2012 when Tekken Tag Tournament 2 came out for the Wii U. However this title isn't available on the Nintendo eShop so the only way to get this one is to take out your Wii U and hit eBay for a copy.

The Legend of Zelda

Throughout the years, The Legend of Zelda has had many faces and art styles. In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, players will see a lot of fan favorites that they can choose as their fighter. Choose from Link, Young Link, Toon Link, Sheik, Zelda, and Gannon.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the few games where players can actually choose Wario and control him. The Nintendo Switch has added another Wario title recently with WarioWare: Get it Together! Get to know Wario and friends on a new level, literally.

Wii Fit

She has obviously got the moves, she's know for being fit! The Wii Fit Trainer was a humorous addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but does bring attention to a unique section of Nintendo games — fitness games. A woman figure like the Wii Fit Trainer also leads fitness exercises in Fitness Boxing 2 on Nintendo Switch.

Xenoblade Chronicles

Yoshi's Crafted World

While Yoshi may have started as just part of Mario's group, in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, he has moves of his own. On the Switch he has adventures of his own too. The latest Yoshi game is Yoshi's Crafted World where a cast of wooly characters try to save their handmade land from Kamek and Baby Bowser.

The kind of fight that brings you together

There are so many amazing franchises Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has brought together and some older games that have a new light on them. While some of these fighters are pop culture familiar faces, we love our less discussed fighter franchises too and can't wait to see what all of these will look like on the new Nintendo Switch OLED.

Start at the very beginning of a franchise with the Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection. Next, try out a new kind of fighting with ARMS. Even try out something a little more laid back with Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Whatever you choose to try next, the variety of game types and characters available in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is truly impressive. So what game did you learn about through Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?
