Ness's moveset has received a minor overhaul. He emits more PSI in some of his moves, most notably his neutral aerial; this allows him to have slightly more range. Ness also received a new up air, where he swipes his finger above him while emitting PSI. This change reduces the range of his up air, but increases combo potential and damage. Ness's yo-yo attacks have also reverted to their pre-Smash 4 incarnations, with the added bonus that they can now hang below the ledge, making it easier for Ness to edgeguard opponents.

Lucas's moveset received less changes then Ness and is overall the same as his previous incarnation.

Characters

Ness and Lucas are both playable once again, and are both unlockables.

Both characters received a buff in their mobility both in the air and on the ground, and the return of directional air dodges significantly benefit both of their recoveries. All of their PSI moves also emit their respective PK graphics when used, and both characters summon some party members when using PK Starstorm: Ness summons Paula and Poo, while Lucas summons Kumatora and Boney.

Ness's moveset has received a minor overhaul. He emits more PSI in some of his moves, most notably his neutral aerial; this allows him to have slightly more range. Ness also received a new up air, where he swipes his finger above him while emitting PSI. This change reduces the range of his up air, but increases combo potential and damage. Ness's yo-yo attacks have also reverted to their pre-Smash 4 incarnations, with the added bonus that they can now hang below the ledge, making it easier for Ness to edgeguard opponents.

All of his specials have also received some overhauls. PK Fire has less landing lag and is now harder for opponents to escape. PK Thunder has more knockback at the head, while PK Thunder 2 has a longer travel distance. PK Flash no longer causes Ness to go into free-fall and is significantly weaker. Most notably, PSI Magnet now deals minor damage when active, allowing Ness to use it in combos.

Lucas's moveset received less changes then Ness and is overall the same as his previous incarnation. His most notable change is a buffed PK Freeze, which no longer puts Lucas into free-fall and knocks opponents away diagonally, making it harder for him to recover. Another notable change is the nerf to his down throw, which has lost most of his combos and KO setups.

Stages

All stages from past titles return in Ultimate: Onett and Fourside return from Melee, New Pork City returns from Brawl, and Magicant returns from Smash 3DS. All of them, most notably Magicant and Fourside, have received overhauls in graphics, as well as additional details.

Items

Both Mr. Saturn and the Franklin Badge return in Ultimate, acting similarly to their previous appearances.

The Ramblin' Evil Mushroom makes its debut in Ultimate. When used, it produces spores that can hit opponents. Any opponents caught in the blast will have a tiny mushroom grow on their head and have their controls reversed.

Assist Trophy

Both Jeff and Starman return with updated designs. They are mostly unchanged from their previous incarnations.

Spirits

Spirits replace trophies from previous games, and have a similar function to Stickers in Brawl. A list of EarthBound spirits can be found here.

Reception

Ultimate recived universally strong positive acclaim. Many critics consider it to be the best installment in the series, praising it's large amount of content and large amounts of returning Smash Bros. elements. It sold over 5 million copies during the first 3 days of release and has sold 12.08 million units as of December 31st, 2018, marking it as the fastest selling Nintendo game in history. It has sold 13.81 million units as of March 31, 2019[1], making it the best selling fighting game in history, beating Brawl which sold 13.30 million units.

Trivia

  • Ultimate is the first Super Smash Bros game to:
    • Be released simultaneously worldwide
    • Not cut any veterans since Melee
    • Not introduce a new EarthBound stage since the original (if Super Smash Bros For 3DS/Wii U are considered the same game)
    • Have both EarthBound series characters with the same availability, with Ness and Lucas both unlockable.
  • Because of the size of the USK rating icon, the German box art was slightly altered in order to fit the icon: several characters were re-positioned, Yoshi was completely removed, and the Smash Bros logo is off-center[2].
  • This is the second Smash Bros. game to feature Ness on the boxart, the other being Melee
  • The original Mother is now referred by it's localized name, EarthBound Beginnings. The reason is because Super Smash Bros. For 3DS/Wii U was released before the game was officially localized.
