In the last Nintendo Direct, which was all about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, game director Masahiro Sakurai said that there’s still one more game mode that he can’t talk about yet. Fans think they’ve figured out what it’s called, but they still don’t know what it actually is. I’ve got a few ideas.


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.
