Nintendo officially unveiled Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Switch during E3 in June, and with the release slated for December, Nintendo just aired a new presentation revealing more key details of the highly-anticipated fighting game.

With the title featuring every playable character in the series’ history like Final Fantasy VII’s Cloud and Ryu from Street Fighter, as well as Metal Gear Solid’s Snake filling out the roster of more than 60 fighters, the special 27-minute broadcast featured above, delivered by series director Masahiro Sakurai divulged other new game information.

New modes both for single and multiplayer situations have been announced with "Squad Strike," and "Smashdown," while returning modes will include "Classic," "Training," and "Tourneys," a variant of an offline tournament mode. Additionally, new fighters have been added, like King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong franchise, Dark Samus from Metroid, along with over 100 new and classic stages added, many of which have been tweaked.

According to Masahiro Sakurai, there are still more fighters and aspects of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in development, as the game officially arrives on December 7 for the Nintendo Switch.
