The true finale to the Smash Series

Super Smash Bros. Rematch, also known as SSBR or SSB8, is the last game in the Super Smash Brothers series and was published by Nintendo on ??/??/?? exclusively on Nintendo Switch and 3DS.


Screen Shot 2017-11-09 at 9.57.21 AM
Super Smash Bros. Rematch plays the same as the last 7 installments. The SSB series is unique as it has characters health replaced by %'s. As each Player gets hit more and more, they're % grows higher and higher. The higher the %, the farther they'll fly. The goal is to knock the opponent off of the stage and/or off the screen in order to Score a K.O. The highest % is 999%.

The controls don't differ from the last game. They are more or less the same from the last game, with Final Smashes and charged attacks. There is also new grab attack, however: when in mid-air, you can grab the opponent and throw them in and direction. Also, if two players try to grab each other at the same time, there grabs will cancel each other out. Finally, the wavedash tech from Melee has returned as it's own funtion, and was implemented for more competitive players.

Up to 12 players can now play locally AND Online, making for some insane matches. You can play using a Nintendo Switch standard controler, a pro controler, a Nintendo 3DS, standard Joycons, Wii remotes, Wii controlers, and a Gamecube controller. The controls are as seen in the image above. If you are unhappy with the cotrols, the option to refigure them is always there in the menu so you can play to your liking. Only a handfull of stages can be played on with 12 characters.

You can even set prizes for the winners like a Mii Costume or a Screenshot or a Trophy/Smash Card.

Omega Smash Mode

In Omega Smash, it at first is nearly exactly like the normal VS Mode. However, apon entering a match, every character is given a random buff or de-buff and are forced to fight with it. There are many things these can effect: the characters, there attacks, items, the stages itself, and even if it's a Stock Match, Timed Match, or Stamina Match. Here is an example:

Smash Attack Damage | Heavy Weight | Fast Attacks | Explosives Only | Fixed Camera

Master Hand Mode (SSBR)

In Master Hand Mode, you get the option to play as the Master Hand himself and fight off wave after wave of CPU enemies. You can use all of Master Hands moves via inputting combos, which look can view via pausing and pressing the - button. Each wave naturally gets harder and harder as you continue on, and if you manage to make it all the way to round 50 (the maximum round), you'll have a 1v1 duel with Giga Bowser. Note: You'll need to unlock this mode via beating Classic Mode for the first time.


There are over ??? items to use, and ??? Assist Trophies as well. Each Item and assist do various things, and can often be used to turn the tide of the battle. If you don't want a certain item or none at all, you can always switch some or all off in the menu. For more info on each Item or Assists uses, click here or here.

Coliseum of Smash


Screen Shot 2017-11-22 at 10.32.16 PM
Coliseum of Smash is the biggest feature in Super Smash Bros. Rematch, and was made to put a distinction between the other games. In it, your character goes through randomly generated challenges in hopes of winning prizes like Smash Cards or Trophies, gaining fans to earn even harder challenges, and even an alternative way to unlock characters. There are three different kinds of challenges, all of which are randomized. These include:
  • VS Battle, where you simply fight against 1-12 fighters with either a time limit, limited stocks, or with stamina. Items are always turned off and the stages are always Flat.
  • Smash Run, where you choose between 7 stages and try to reach the end as fast as possible. Enemies, other characters, and hazards will try to stop you. There will be a list of them below.
  • Challenger Matches, where one of 15 bosses will fight you. There will be a list of all bosses below, along with info on how they attack and act.

Occasionally, if your doing really well, a unlockable character will challenge you to a fight. You then fight him/her/it in a one stock 1v1 match on Final Destination. You'll need to beat the character in order to unlock him/her/it, but if you loose you can always re-challenge them to try again. If you run out of characters to unlock, you'll instead fight a team of randomly picked Metal versions of characters.

In-between matches, and depending on how many Fans you've gotten (which you can earn by beating challenges), the Audience will occasionally throw in helpful items into the stage to aid you. The more Fans you have, the higher chance this has of happening. These items can range from healing items to Assist trophies.

Smash Run Stages

There are a total of 7 Smash Run stages, and all of them have the same goal: you need to get to the end before the time limit ends. Along the way, each stage has unique enemies and hazards to block your way, and sometimes will even have other characters give chase to you. These stages include:

Challenger Bosses

There are a total of 15 Challenger Bosses you can fight. In order to beat them, of course, you'll need to attack them until there health depletes all the way. These bosses have 3 difficulties: Easy, Normal, and Hard. You can select your difficulty before the fight starts. The higher the difficulty, the bigger the reward. To see each bosses attacks, you can clicks here to see them. The bosses include:

Smash Cards

Screen Shot 2017-11-22 at 11.52.18 PM
Smash Cards are a new addition to the Smash Bros series and are brand new collectables in this game. Each card is based off a character, stage, item, boss, or NPC in this game, with over ??? cards that can be collected. These Cards go into your "Smash Collection" once you gain some, and can be viewed anytime.

You can unlock these cards by:

  • Playing Classic Mode, All-Star Mode, Coliseum of Smash, and Online Mode.
  • Buy them from the in-game store
  • Trade them with other online (you'll need at least one card for this)

You can do many things with these cards. The biggest example is that you can trade them online with others and also show them off. You can also have them be one of the many option for prizes on Tournament mode, put them into screenshots, decorate them, etc. If you gain a duplicate, you will have the option to disregard it and "sell" it for money.

Finally, you can not only scan Amiibos to unlock cards, you can also transfer cards you've unlocked on the 3DS version onto the Switch version and vise versa.

Master Edition

On the games one year aniversary, a special edition of the game titled Master Editions was released for $130.00. It includes:

  • The game itself, with all the DLC plus 7 new characters.
  • The games soundtrack.
  • A special case for the Nintendo Switch.
  • A special Mario amiibo.
  • A download code for Smash Bros 64.


  • There was many things scrapped from the game:
    • Waluigi, Space Invader, Knuckles, Zero, X, Wii Fit Trainer, Dark Pit, Rosalina, Captain N, and Conker where planned but where removed. In Waluigi's case, he was close but was removed in favor of Paper Mario, and with Conker it was due to legal issues.
    • On the flip side, Steve? was meant to be in the game from the start, but due to difficulties with his animations, he was delayed. He was later released as free DLC. A similar story happened with Fox and Falco due to difficulties with a new Final Smash. They where later released as free DLC.
    • A Story Mode idea was toyed with, but Golden-Sans was lazy it seemed a bit much to somehow include all these characters, so that was removed in favor of Coliseum of Smash.
    • For a very short time, Bubsy the Bobcat was considered, but was dropped due to the backlash it would have cause due to Bubsy's infamousness.
    • The game went through several name changes, including Smash Bros. Endgame, Smash Bros. Finale, Smash Bros. End, Smash Bros. Last Fight, and Smash Bros. Final Smash.
  • This game by far has the most newcomers in a Smash Game, ringing in at about 24 newcomers, not including DLC.
