On December 7th, at midnight, Super Smash Bros Ultimate rolls out worldwide. That would be the new title of the popular video game series, which broke pre-sale records on the Nintendo Switch and in the history of the Smash Bros franchise.
The franchise that began in 1999 with the game “Super Smash Bros” has sold about 40 million copies on the different consoles on which the games of the series arrived, that without counting the sales of the new title that is unique thanks to the feature of reuniting all the characters of the franchise into one game.
To carry out this work, it was necessary the collaboration of designers, producers, and developers of the more than 30 franchises, which results in a title in which 74 characters are present initially.
“The game is new because it brings together characters and scenes from all the previous titles, and of which there are high expectations because it already breaks pre-sale records,” said Bill Van Zill from Nintendo.
