, known in Japan as Super Smash Bros. Zenith 大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズクライマックス is another game in the Dairantou Smash Brothers Climax . It is developed by APIM Group Inc's successor, Alpha Eagle Ltd, and it will be released for the Super Smash Bros. franchise Nintendo Switch.
The game attempts to be a "definite"
Super Smash Bros. game, so the game has 72 playable characters (excluding DLC). There will also be over 50 stages.
This is the main event. Here, players can pit themselves against others and just have fun.
Regular Smash: Have a single match, where you can pre-customize just about everything: what characters are fighting, who's fighting as who, the stage, the items, whether Time or Stock mode, etcetera.
Special Smash: Special Smash has even more custom rules than Regular Smash. Players can turn every character Metal, or make them tiny. They can also alter the camera a bit, or set the damage meter to 300%.
8-Player Smash: Similar to Regular Smash, except you can have up to eight players at once instead of four. Your choice concerning stages is limited, though.
Tournament: Set up a tournament of matches, in a bracket-style fashion. Players who lost can no longer participate, while players that won will advance to the next bracket.
This is like Smash Modes, but is set online, where people over the entire world can be pit against each other. Players can battle With Anyone or With Friends.
Smash: Play against Anyone or Friends with set rules. Battling against Anyone ensures the player cannot use their Custom move set nor their own Mii Fighter.
For Fun: Players will battle on any stage with Items on.
For Glory: Players will battle on Omega versions of stages with Items set off. An Omega Stage is a stage altered in a way so it plays like on Final Destination, but visually resembles the original stage.
Spectator: A mode that is a bit like horse races. Bet on a character, and if said character wins, the player wins a bunch of Gold. If said character loses, the player will lose gold.
Solo Modes are modes that are usually played alone, but sometimes can be played with a friend.
Classic Mode is where the player chooses a character and partakes in seven different battles in a predetermined order, as well as two minigame challenges (One is either Target Smash or Target Blast, the other is completely random), a fight against Metal Mario, another fight against a Fighting Mii Team, and a last fight against Master Hand (and Crazy Hand, depending on the difficulty setting).
The player is allowed to play in either Straight Classic (the regular Classic Mode as seen in SSB64, Melee and Brawl) or Multipath Classic (where the player can choose between three paths after each battle). While Straight Classic and Multipath Classic don't matter concerning regular rewards, Multipath allows the player to get more Gold and
challenge Master Core. Players will also get a different trophy for clearing Multipath Classic.
When the player successfully defeated Master Hand, they will receive a Trophy based on the character they played as, as well as a Stamp depicting that same character.
All-Star Mode is unlockable again, where the player fights all the characters in their current roster in a specific order, namely in the order of their debut date in descending order (from new to old). The player's damage meter will not reset after each fight, and instead has to heal themself with a limited amount of healing items (which should be used wisely).
The last fight is against a difficult Mr. Game & Watch team, referring to Melee's All-Star mode.
The player can also choose to play Random All-Star, where they need to battle characters in a random order, in sets of 1, 2, 3, and 4, similar to Melee's All-Star.
Similar to Regular All-Star, the last fight is against a difficult team, but it's rather against a team of Sonic, Mega Man, Pac-Man or Rayman.
Successfully defeating all challengers rewards the player with a trophy depicting their character in their Final Smash. They will also get a Stamp that also depicts their character in a Final Smash.
Training Mode is where players can test out the moves of every single character against an opponent they can fully customize their AI with. Players can also add in as many specific kinds of items they please, they can determine the speed of the game, and they can even reset everything. Attack combos will also be counted.
Super Smash Bros. Zenith/List of Event Matches
Event Matches are a collection of set Smash matches with different objectives. Some Event Matches have special rewards when done under certain circumstances, and sometimes, certain character should've been unlocked to unlock more Event Matches. Beating them all also gives players a reward.
These games are just little fun challenges. Some of them are also found in Classic.
Homerun Contest: Get and smash Sandbag as far as you can.
Target Smash: Break all the targets using the skills of each character.
Target Blast: Break as much targets as you can... and your sole way to do that is by smashing a heavy bomb that explodes in ten seconds.
Trophy Rush: Get as much trophies as you can within a certain time limit.
Special Orders: Choose a random battle and win in order to get goodies.
Master Orders: Choose your battle and get your reward immediately after you win.
Crazy Orders: Wager Gold and participate in a series of battles and get great rewards... but only after you defeat Crazy Hand!
Battle a certain amount of opponents in different styles. You may encounter certain enemies sometimes.
10-Man Smash: Arguably the simplest style. Defeat ten opponents as fast as you can. The tenth opponent is a larger version of the character you chose
100-Man Smash: A more standard style. Defeat a hundred opponents as fast as you can. Each 25th opponent is from the playable roster, and each 50th is a larger version.
3-Minute Smash: Defeat as many opponents as you can in three minutes. Each 25th opponent is from the playable roster, and each 50th is a larger version.
Endless Smash: Defeat as much opponents as you can before you get KO'd yourself. Each 25th opponent is from the playable roster, and each 50th is a larger version.
Rival Smash: Defeat as many opponents as you can in comparison to your rival, who's goal is the same. Each 25th opponent is from the playable roster, and each 50th is a larger version.
Cruel Smash: Probably the hardest mode in the game. Defeat as many opponents as possible, but watch out: they are very powerful and cunning.
Super Smash Bros. Zenith/Smash Run
Traverse a large stage while battling several enemies and collecting power-ups within five minutes. Different from the
Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS version is that there's multiple stages this time, and at the end of each Smash Run, the player has to fight a specific boss, much harder than usual. Beating said boss will earn a trophy of that boss.
The power-ups from the original Smash Run return in Zenith's Smash Run, as do the dimension doors with specific tasks to earn more bonuses.
Defeat large enemies in a random order.
5-Boss Smash: Defeat five random bosses as fast as you can. The last one is either Master Hand, Crazy Hand, or Tabuu.
10-Boss Smash: Defeat ten random bosses as fast as you can. The last one is either Master Hand, Crazy Hand, or Tabuu.
5-Minute Boss Smash: Defeat as many bosses as possible in five minutes. Neither Master Hand, Crazy Hand or Tabuu will appear at all.
Endless Boss Smash: Defeat as many bosses as possible without going KO once. Neither Master Hand, Crazy Hand or Tabuu will appear at all.
Boss Marathon Smash: Defeat all the possible bosses as fast as you can. The last opponent will be Master Core, who will start out as Master Hand and will go through all forms.
The Vault is where players can take a break from Smashing and check all the things they have collected
Super Smash Bros. Zenith/List of Trophies
Trophies are figurines of characters, stages and items that either appear in Smash Bros. Zenith or are related to the fighters and series featured in the game. Most of the time, they can be received randomly by playing Solo modes or Minigames, but they can also be bought in the Shop. Some Trophies can only be received by clearing a Challenge.
Trophy Shop: This is where you can buy Trophies with the Gold that is earned.
Trophy Hoard: This is where you can view all your Trophies together.
Trophy Showcase: This is where you can view certain Trophies in themed display cases.
Trophy Photoshoot: This is where you can place up to four trophies in any way you like and take a picture of it.
Super Smash Bros. Zenith/List of Music
This is where you can listen to the songs you have unlocked. Some songs can only be unlocked with CDs, others with Challenges.

A rather short boxer from the Bronx, and also a WVBA champ. He's a powerful guy on the ground... but not so in mid-air.
