Super Smash Bros. Rixam is the sixth installment in the Super Smash Bros. series. It is being developed by Namco-Bandai games and is currently set to release on the Nintendo NX during the 2020 Holiday season. Development on the game was secretly started as early as 2014 during the final stages of Super Smash Bros For Wii U's development, however the project was postponed when it was announced that Super Smash Bros For Wii U would be receiving a port to the Nintendo NX.

Single Player Modes
Break The Targets
A returning mode from Brawl and Melee, Break The Targets is a mode where one must traverse a mazelike platform layout in order to, well, break targets as quickly as possible.
Home Run Contest
A longtime series mainstay, the object of Home Run Contest is to inflict as much damage on a Sandbag item as possible before proceeding to knock it out of the launch platform as forcefully as possible using a Home Run Bat. Some characters may also have their own unique ways of launching the Sandbag, particularly Ganondorf, who's powerful Warlock Punch is so effective at launching it that an achievement in the game is based entirely around using his attack to send it flying across the stadium.
The Super Smash Bros Rixam story mode is unique in that it is an entirely exploration-based mode. The entire storyline takes place in a single massive single player map, with the object being to find areas of interest while accepting missions and purchasing items from NPC characters in certain dedicated noncombatant areas such as towns and cities.
The fighting style is most similar to that of Brawl's Subspace Emissary and For 3DS Smash Run, however some enemies now die in just one or two hits in exchange for having far more complex AI and trickier placement in the levels.
Super Smash Bros Rixam has a variety of different online modes, each dedicated to serving a unique multiplayer preference.
With Friends is a mode dedicated to arranging matches with individuals on your friend list rather than finding a random opponent online. Due to the more personal environment making it easier for players to voluntarily consent to the usage of various options, the number of settings on With Friends is much larger than that on With Anyone, even allowing custom fighters and Miis.
With Anyone is the standard online play format for any individual that wishes to play a match without the constraints of having to set up a lobby and add another player to one's Friend List. In this game, there are three different settings for With Anyone, each catering to a different type of gameplay: For Fun, For Glory, and Party Room. The first two of these modes date back to Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and 3DS, while a third is a new addition in Rixam.
The traditional form of casual play, For Fun sends players to every map except Final Destination and has all items on by default.
For Glory is the more competitive setting, using exclusively Final Destination and the various Omega Mode stage variants as stages and leaving all items disabled.
A newly introduced mode in Super Smash Bros Rixam, Party Room was created to channel the desire for alternative play that had initially overrun online in Super Smash Bros Brawl before proceeding to locate itself in For Fun mode in Wii U. In Party Room, all damage is turned off, and matches are exclusively timed. The only object of Party Room is to maneuver your characters in whatever manner you so please for your own entertainment. At the end of each match, a screen with the same animations as a No Contest is displayed, and no score is offered. This mode is meant to be a suitable play option for anyone who wants to take advantage of Nintendo's greatest crossover without needing to engage in a high-octane fight every match.
