|Super Smash Bros. Elementals|
|WW - December 7th, 2019|
|Series||Super Smash Bros|
|Predecessor||Super Smash Bros. Ultimate|
Super Smash Bros. Elementals is an upcoming installment of the Super Smash Bros. series. Confirmed to be the second installment of the series to be released on the Nintendo Switch, this game is developed by Topaz Central. This game will be released on December 7th, 2019, as a worldwide and a simultaneous release.
The game's main theme is a remix of beta intro of SSF2, and can be found here.
A new feature to the game is a new elemental system. The system includes ten elements, which are Fire, Water, Nature, Electric, Earth, Air, Tech, Metal, Light and Dark. Unlike other games that have an elemental system, where they have one type be weak against one, but strong against another, characters with different elements improve their attacks, not just which element is weak and strong against others.
- Air: Allows floatier jumps and can easily recover from the air. However, they can be knocked back easily.
- Dark: Allows to blind opponents by doing a smash attack at others, for 3 seconds. However, any high-light attacks doubles the damage they take.
- Earth: Allows stronger damage for smash attacks and can deal strong knockback. However, they are slower than the others.
- Electric: Allows longer-lasting shields and stuns opponents after being attacked for two seconds and/or having the target doing a Perfect Shield. However, they damage themselves by 0.2% after they stun other opponents.
- Fire: Allows to burn opponents after any smash attack and can deal more powerful attacks. However, they're easier to be defeated when they're over 100% damage.
- Light: Allows easier dodging and be able to heal from 3%-10%, every 30 secs. However, they become vulnerable while healing.
- Metal: Allows sword attacks to deal more damage and attack combos multiply damage by x0.5. However, air dodging is shorter than others.
- Nature: Allows long-range grabs and powerful throws. However, if hit by a fire attack, they'll take damage as they're been burned.
- Tech: Allows projectiles to be shot faster and further air dodging. However, their shields last shorter than others.
- Water: Allows faster run speed and have quicker dodges than others. However, they can't recover as well.
All of the modes are divided into five sections, like Ultimate, with the same sections. A list of all of the modes include:
- Smash: The best way to play Smash! Up to 8 players can join in the fun, or even up to 64 players in the Tourney Mode. Sqaud Strike and Smashdown return and are even better than ever!
- Smash: It's the regular mode to play Smash! You can have intense 1v1 battles, play casual free-for-all matches, or even better, 8-player mayhem to make things more chaotic!
- Special Smash: If you want to pump up the wackiness, try Special Smash! Here, you can be metal, reflect with badges and jump really high, but don't worry about records, 'cause these matches won't count!
- Squad Strike: Returning from Ultimate, is an unique mode pitting two teams of three, five or now, seven! With this, 14 players cam play representing a character each!
- Smashdown: Returning from Ultimate, is a tactical type mode, cause once you play as a character, you can't play them again! That raises a question, will you start with your mains and struggle at the end, struggle at the start and finish with mains, or spread your mains out more?
- Tourney Mode: Up to 64 players can participate in the Tourney Mode! Battle each other in a customised bracket to reign supreme and become the champion!
- Online: If you're on your own and have the new online system, then just go to Online Play! You can play against other people online with different types of matches, enter online tournaments, and even check your own Global Smash Power! Just watch out for lag, ok?
- Games & More: Check out the other modes right here! Play by yourself or with a friend in Classic Mode and All-Star Mode, as you fight your way through matches against any character! Or you can face multiple fighters with friends in Multi-Man Smash! Heck, even test yourself to see how good you're with other fighters in the Stadium!
- Classic Mode:
- All-Star Mode: The mode that has appeared since Melee! Unlike Ultimate however, it's back to the basics of Smash 3DS, with every fighter battling you in chronological order! You can only heal three times between battles, and you're on one lfie, so be careful!
- Multi-Man Smash: The mode that allows you to smash clones of anything, Multi-Man Smash! If it's 10-Man, 100-Man, Cruel or even against a clone of your chosen fighter, this will test your knowledge and survival with the fighter.
- Event Match:
- Special Orders: This mode was unique in Smash for Wii U, and now that it's returned, it's better than ever! In Master Orders, you can choose a fight and recieve rewards, but lose and you get nothing. Crazy Orders are more risky, but you can play as many fights in 10 minutes, but lose a life and rewards will be lost.
- Vault: If you're really bored, then just go to the section that separated the men from the boys, the Vault! You can build your own stage in Stage Builder, play games where fighters got their origins in Masterpieces, listen to your favourite music from your favourite series in Sound Test and see what kind of games appeared on each Nintendo console in Chronicle! This is the place to make, play and discover!
- Stage Builder: Don't you think that being creative isn't allowed, because Stage Builder is here! This can be used in two different ways, in docked form (like Brawl) and handheld form (like Smash Wii U). You're also given a lot of stage pieces, and yes, some pieces are related to all of the franchises!
- Sound Test: If you don't have any stage ideas, then you can jam out to some music! From the popular music of Mario and Kirby, to obscure franchises like Balloon Fight and Duck Hunt, heck, you can even listen to music from third-party franchises!
- Masterpieces: Every character has to have their origins, and this is the place for all of those origins! Most fighters have their debut game on here, and there's a special game to celebrate the series' 20th anniversary.
- Chronicle: If you think that we're running out of ideas, you are right! Chronicle lists every official game that has been released on Nintendo consoles, and hey, it's here just for funsies!
Shadic has confirmed that the roster will have 100 characters (with a maximum of 10 characters per element). It's also stated that all characters have been designed (or re-designed for returning veterans) to be close to their games, which will determine one of the ten elements they'll be representing. There are 30 characters unlocked from the start with the other 70 needed to be unlocked.

On November 6th, 2018, it was announced by Shadic that a Newcomer Ballot will be held and will end in early 2019 (either January or February). The top 25 realizable newcomers (characters that can easily become a fighter with an obvious element) will become a newcomer in Elementals. From March to November, every 55 day-range will show a Topaz Central Direct (either general or Smash-exclusive), revealing 5 newcomers each time. Two newcomers have already been decided, however they're not considered to be part of the ballot. Because of this, the game's release date was pulled ahead to December 7th, 2019.
The final stage count will have ??? stages. However, it's been confirmed that every character will have their own home stage, with a stage from one of their recent or popular games. Also, every stage has an α and an Ω form. Below shows the starting stages of the game.
