Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fighting game for the Nintendo Switch. It is the fifth entry in the Super Smash Bros. series, following the release of Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U for both the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. Ultimate was released on December 7, 2018, nearly a decade after Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is also the second game to feature Solid Snake as a playable character since the aforementioned Brawl due to the decision to bring back all the fighters that ever participated in the franchise. In addition, since Hideo Kojima replaced David Hayter during development of Metal Gear Solid V, the English version of the game featured the latter reprising his role as Solid Snake for the first time since Metal Gear Solid 2: Bande Dessinée.[1] Besides Snake, the Shadow Moses Island stage and the Gray Fox assist trophy makes a return. Additionally, Kazuhira Miller and Ocelot appear in the same game as spirits for the game's story mode, World of Light. Snake's logo has been changed to an Exclamation point, owing to Kojima and Konami's separation. Because of Rathalos appearing as both an assist trophy and as a boss character, it also marks the second time Metal Gear interact with Monster Hunter (the first being in Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker). Aside from the Metal Gear series, Konami's sister series Castlevania is also represented via Simon and Richter Belmont. The soundtrack composer for Peace Walker also did a remix of the Airship theme from Super Mario Bros. 3 for the game.
