Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has it all, and whether you're a seasoned pro or a newbie coming in blind, "it all" is a lot. Every fighter from every prior Smash game is available, plus over 100 stages, a lot of wily items, a slew of quality-of-life updates and a somewhat perplexing collectables system called "Spirits." Here's how to get the most out of Smash Ultimate, which is, in my opinion, the best Smash game yet.

We live in exciting times, Super Smash Bros. fans. In this year 2018, in which many improbable things have happened, Nintendo has announced we’re getting precisely what we’ve wanted in the upcoming Smash game: every Smash fighter ever, plus Ridley from Metroid; King K. Rool from Donkey Kong; even Daisy from Mario. Great stuff, Nintendo. Thanks.
Super Smash Bros. has traditionally cast a wide net across a divided audience who demand contradictory things from the blockbuster platform fighter. For its party-game fan contingent, Smash rains down Bob-ombs and Party Balls. For its fiercely competitive fan contingent, it flattens stages and removes platforms.
In the past, Smash has catered to its split fanbase by making a middle-of-the-road fighting game that tries to appeal to everyone. The next game, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, seems to actually cater to everybody at each end of the spectrum for what seems like a massively crowd-pleasing iteration of the world's most crowd-pleasing fighting game.
