Super Smash Bros. Reminiscence is a fighting game for the Nintendo Switch developed by Bandai Namco and Sora Ltd. and published by Nintendo. It is the technical sixth installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, as series creator Masahiro Sakurai has officially stated that the previous games (being both Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Wii U and Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS) are the fourth and fifth installments in the series; in reality, Reminiscence is the fifth installment if both versions of Sm4sh are counted as one game. The game's release date has not been confirmed as the game was only confirmed on January 10th, 2016.

Reminiscence has been stated to be a launch window title on the Switch and will add several features the fans of the series have been waiting for as well as improving on the core aspects of the Super Smash Bros. series.


Gameplay in Super Smash Bros. Reminiscence is similar to previous entries in the series. Like the previous games, it differs from other fighting games like Street Fighter and Marvel vs. Capcom as instead of depleting an opponent's health, you must knock your opponents off the stage by racking up damage. The more damage (represented by a percentage that goes up to 999%) a character has, the farther they will be launched from the stage. A character controlled by the character can then attempt to recover and get back onto the stage using certain moves. Characters with more range in their recoveries have a better chance of getting back onto the stage than ones that have a shorter range.

Playable Characters

The playable character roster will be greatly expanded upon from the previous games in the series. Mid-battle transformations return after being absent in the previous two games but this time, they are done through the down taunt as opposed to the down special, meaning that Samus and Zelda can switch to Zero Suit Samus and Shiek respectively once again.

Hero of the Mushroom Kingdom and also skilled in numerous professions ranging from carpentry to administering medicine, Mario brings his well-known moves back to Smash Bros. for another brawl against famed Nintendo characters.

Best known as King of the Koopas, Bowser brings his heavy-hitting abilities from previous games back once again to take down the Mario Brothers along with everyone who stands in his way.

  • Combines power with speed for a deadly combination.
  • Fire Breath can hit distant opponents, Whirling Fortress can deal constant damage, and Bowser Bomb can bury opponents.
  • Able to counter multiple threats.

The Inklings are a mysterious race of anthropomorphic squid-like creatures who have taken a liking to modern fashion trends and generally being the freshest squids on the block. However, in order to claim that title, they must participate in Turf Wars, which are tests of skill and strategy to see who can cover the most area in their teams' ink. Where exactly that ink comes from is unknown, but it's fun to speculate.

  • Lightweight and incredibly fast while only dealing medium amounts of damage.
  • The Ink Meter determines how many of his/her specials can be used and it will need to recharge from time to time.

Spring Man is one of many fighters participating in the Arms tournament and is equipped with spring-loaded arms with interchangeable gauntlets ranging from standard boxing gloves, curving boomerang launchers, and a pair of gloves that shoots three spears.

  • Similar to Little Mac, he has a variety of boxing and wrestling moves at his disposal.
  • Has both long and short ranged attacks.
  • Can change his selected Arms at will.
