In addition to adding a new playable character, the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update also included a creative mode that gives players the ability to make their own elaborate stages.

While many have used this new mode to craft all sorts of phallic fighting arenas, a few have lifted their minds out of the gutter long enough to put together similarly silly places to duke it out with Mario and his ever-expanding gang.

The highly anticipated Joker from Persona 5 has finally been added to the roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a platform fighter that’s rapidly reaching Wrestlemania levels of “everybody is here—even, somehow, that guy.”

Thankfully, with Joker, Smash Ultimate continues to hit it out of the park with newly designed fighters who continue to be both faithful to their source material and full of surprises.

The Nintendo Switch screen is pretty big, but if you’ve ever had trouble reading text or seeing details, the latest system update adds a nifty zoom feature. You can zoom in close and even lock the zoom in place. It’s a small but welcome feature that makes the Switch a little more accessible.

Lately I’ve been playing more Smash Bros. than I have in my entire life. That sounds like a lot, but it’s really not.

I missed out on all the Nintendo consoles after the SNES, so I never owned a version of the game before Smash Ultimate, which came out for the Switch last year. I moved constantly, which meant constantly shifting friend groups, making Smash Bros. parties a relatively rare, yet fun, occurrence. Like a trip to Disney World, or making a quiche.

Hundreds of PAX East attendees crowded around a small stage in the expo hall last Saturday afternoon to see if Seth, one of the top-ranked Smash players in Chicago, could keep his team alive in Nintendo’s North America Open against his opponent Poltergust.

As both players deployed deadly items and Final Smash attacks, the hall blew up with shock and cheers until Poltergust eventually edged Seth out. The crowd erupted in applause, but for many diehard Smash fans, this wasn’t the tournament they’d wanted to see.

Long-established is the purpose of friends. When you feel like you can’t do anything right, they remind you of the times you did. When you feel like the world’s against you, they loyally stand by. And when you triumph, they celebrate your successes alongside you. All of this, it turns out, it crumpled up and tossed in a trash can overflowing with lighter fluid when you’re choosing your main in Super Smash Bros.

While the majority of people who tune into Super Smash Bros. tournaments are in it for the nasty spikes and pop-offs, this fighting game’s grassroots community also has some comedy chops to offer.

The best surprise from last weekend’s Smash Ultimate Summit tournament was a hilarious, Interstellar-inspired skit from some beloved pros about the difficulty of leaving old versions of Super Smash Bros. behind.
