Nintendo has confirmed Super Smash Bros.

The final two playable characters to be announced are Street Fighter alumni Ken and Pokémon grappler Incineroar. It is the final form of Litten. The pass will cost £22.49/ €24.99, while those that put the money down will get a bonus Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Rex outfit for their Mii Fighter - making it a must buy for me. Details on the contents will be announced at a later date.

Piranha Plant is also coming. Alternatively you can grab get the Fighter Pass for all five sets which will be available before what's in it has been revealed.

Spirits will replace collectible trophies, will com in different types, such as Primary and Suppport.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate combines many stages and new items, with gameplay that makes it easy for players of all skill levels to jump in. You can also combine cores to summon new Spirits, train them in the Gym, or send them off on quests to find treasure. But the Master Hands transform into looping beams of light that carry away the characters, turning them into spirits.

To rescue them you have to win special fights that are themed around the character in question. Nintendo suggested using a dedicated connection instead of Wifi in order to stay connected due the possibility of getting a quit penalty. People will be able to play offline or online in various modes, as well as spectate. The Nintendo Online phone app will allow for voice chat, and a new app called Smash World will launch sometime after the game, which will focus on players sharing fun gameplay moments.

The rumours about the latest Nintendo Direct all turned out to be false, but there's plenty of new info on the Switch's big Christmas game.
