Ultra Smash Bros. Burst (also referred as Ultra Burst) is a platform fighter game developed by Stardust Citadel and published by Nintendo. It is the seventh installment of the Super Smash Bros. series, following 2018's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The game is the first made without the major involvement of series creator, Masahiro Sakurai, who takes on a supervisionary role for this game while a new director stands up.

Ultra Burst is described as a soft reboot of the series, seeking to revamp the gameplay of the game. The game is stated be the first of game of the Silver Age, where Ultimate was the last game of the Golden Age. The Silver Age of Smash seeks to bring in new innovations by experimenting with different gameplay mechanics and concepts in a more experimental take on the series, while keeping it true to the series core as a whole.

Development

Development of Ultra Smash Bros. Burst began in early 2019, with the acquisition of Stardust Citadel by Nintendo. The team were working on a Smash-esque engine and it caught the attention of the Nintendo higher-ups. As Sakurai declared that he wouldn't continue directing the Smash series after Ultimate, the team at Stardust Citadel, as well a development team from Nintendo composed of younger developers, started working together on refining the Smash engine. Although not directly involved in the game's development, Sakurai served as a supervisor for the game, providing notes and feedback to the ideas provided by the new team.

The game remained in secrecy until a Nintendo Direct in 2021, three years after the initial development, when Nintendo teased a new Smash Bros. installment under the codename Neo Smash. The reveal was a surprise, as Nintendo implied Neo Smash would also be released on the Nintendo Switch, making it for the first Smash installment to be released on a system already having a Smash game. In further interviews, Nintendo representatives stated the new Smash game would provide a different feel and experience from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, one being made for the fans while the other seeks to provide the "next evolution" of the Smash series, with a brand new vision for the series and changes in how things should work.

Character Reveals

Geno
SSB Mario Series The Legendary Star Warrior
72 - Geno Geno's Wish Comes True!

I'm pleased to announce Geno is the first newcomer included in Ultra Smash Bros. Burst. Geno is a fighter whose only major appearance was in the 1996 classic Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars but has remained a series favorite ever since his debut. His appearance in Ultra Burst makes it his first playable appearance in almost 25 years. Wow! Smash is no stranger to give characters a second chance, as some of you may remember Pit's appearance in Brawl, making it his first playable appearance in 17 years.

As a playable fighter, Geno's moveset is based off his appearance in his debut game. Like Mega Man, Geno does not utilizes normal punches and kicks for his neutral moves, instead choosing to fire bullets out of his iconic Star Gun. Geno's gimmick in his original game was the ability to charge up his moves to deal more damage. This trait will also be present in Ultra Burst, as Geno can charge up not only his special moves, but also some of his neutral ones too.

Geno's Final Smash is the Geno Flash, a powerful explosion with a gigantic range. Getting away from the blast is one tough challenge!

Super Mario RPG

Geno's only major game appearance was the 1996 collaboration between Nintendo and Square Enix, the ambitious Super Mario RPG. Boasting a different artstyle and gameplay from what was common for RPGs at the time, Super Mario RPG provided the perfect formula between Mario's trademark platforming and Square's ingenious storytelling. Many of the features introduced in Super Mario RPG would later influence two other Mario RPGs, Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario, continuing to amaze players with comical dialogue and intriguing battle systems.

Gameplay

Ultra Burst has the basic gameplay of the previous titles. The game is a platform fighter, where players take control of characters from different series, attacking opponents and increasing their damage percentage. The higher the damage percentage of a player, the higher they will fly off when they are hit again. The objective of the game is to knock opponents out of the stage they are in. Each character has the same inputs, but each character has a different function for their inputs.

Differences between Ultra Burst and the previous Smash games is a bigger focus on offensive combat.

  • Shields are now replaced by Parries, where if the player presses the parry button in the timeframe before the opponent's move connect, the player will take 50% less damage and no knockback from the attack and be fully able to counter the opponent's attack instantly. Getting the Parry earlier or later than what it is expected will make the player take 25% less damage and still recieve the full knockback, as well as being unable to follow up with an attack.
  • Abilities like crawling and wall jump are now universal.
  • The effects of Rage start earlier than when they did in Smash 4. To counterbalance, the boost of rage is slightly reduced.
  • Moves with big startup and ending lags have their lags reduced.
  • Heavyweight characters have been made faster and slightly floatier, making them more viable.
  • Landing lag has been decreased.
  • Players can now sacrifice one of their stocks to utilize Ultra Burst, a gameplay mechanic that works similar to Rage but with a bigger attack multiplier and temporary. Ultra Burst can be stacked with Rage as well. Ultra Burst can be toggled off, as well as Rage if the player wishes too.

Game Modes

CLASSIC Classic is a returning game mode from previous Super Smash Bros. games. Players go through a certain amount of stages before fighting off against the Master Hand or the Master Hand and the Crazy Hand.

Classic is similar to its appearance in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. Characters go through a set of three path options, each one colored differently to determine their difficulty: red for hard, green for medium and blue for easy. As the difficulty decreases, the amount of battles the player has to go through becomes smaller. The more the difficulty increases, the more and the better rewards the player acquires.

Before starting Classic, the player can choose the level of intensity, starting from 3.0 to 10.0. The harder level of intensity, the better and the more rewards the player has. On harder intensities (9.0+), the player has the chance to fight Master Core after defeating both Master Hand and Crazy Hand.

VERSUS The classic Versus mode returns as expected in Ultra Burst. Play matches against other players or against computer controlled opponents, in four different gameplay styles:
  • Stock, where each player has a limited amount of stocks and they lose them once they fall of the stage. The last player remaining wins.
  • Time, where each player has an infinite amount of stocks but the battle has a time limt. The player who knocks the opponents more times than the rest wins.
  • Coin, where each player drops a random amount of coins when they are attacked. The player with more coins when the time is up wins.
  • Stamina, where each player has a set amount of health and the player that reaches 0 HP, they are knocked out. The last player remaining wins.
TROPHY
SCRAMBLE
Trophy Scramble is a new game mode included in Ultra Burst. This mode takes place a big maze, where the participants are spawned in different locations of the map. Each player chooses one character and they must progress through out the maze with a singular stock. Players can acquire Trophies of the other fighters in the roster, giving them an extra stock. If they lose a stock with their current character and have a Trophy of another character, their next stock will make the player take control of the character in that Trophy.

Although inspired by the Smash Run, Trophy Scramble does not have the same objective as Smash Run. For one, the mode has no time limit. The objective of Trophy Scramble is to acquire the four pieces of the Smash Trophy, a golden trophy of the Smash logo. To acquire the pieces, the player must explore the maze and find doors that leads to different places in the maze, sometimes one of these doors can lead to a Boss Battle. Should the player win the battle, they will be fully recovered and acquire one of their pieces. The amount of Smash Trophies depends on the amount of players, there will be at least one trophy for one player, making sure everyone has a fair chance of acquiring the trophy.

Adventure Mode: Remnants of Subspace

The adventure mode included in Ultra Smash Bros. Burst takes place an unspecified amount of years after the events of Subspace Emissary, this time involving a new villian character by the name of Primordial, the self-proclaimed leader of the remaining members of the Subspace. Similar to the original Subspace Emissary, this mode takes the shape of a platformer, with the player having to control the characters to the end of a linear level, reaching its goal or defeating the boss at the end like a traditional game of this genre.

Palutena watches over the Skyworld, watching over the World of Trophies. She notices a strange occourance happening, something similar to the Subspace Bombs back during the events of the Subspace Emissary. She sends out one of the new members of her army, the star warrior Geno, alongside her trusted pupil Pit to investigate. As the two advance towards the spot, they notice that they are not alone in the search for the mysterious object.

As they battle, a taller than average humanoid Primid gets closer to the Subspace Bomb. Ridley is the first to notice, followed by the other three who decide to stop their fight to stop whoever this creepy fellow is trying to do with the bomb. Palutena notices the battle isn't going their way and rushes to help, finding Kumatora in her way and recruiting her to help on the battle.

The mysterious individual reveals itself as Primordial, the self proclaimed leader of the Remnants of Subspace and the Last Emmissary of Tabuu. She activates the Subspace Bomb, which proceeds to swallow her and her defeated opponents inside of it. Promordial releases a gigantic pure purple version of Ridley made out of Subspace Bugs and uses it to spread the bugs all around the World of Trophies, claiming this as the second strike of the Subspace Army. The bugs reach two places: the Scale Fortress and the Combat Arena, requiring the effort of all those involved in these places in order to defeat the ever-increasing Subspace Army and escape out of there alive. After fighting the waves of enemies, Bowser and Meta Knight notice the flying Subspace Ridley and give chase to them, with Mario tagging along on Bowser's Clown Car and Shovel Knight on the back of Meta Knight, with the remaining staying to fight off the last of the enemy waves.

The Ancient Minister
Lucas is seen running in the direction of Rice Beach, looking for his partner Kumatora, who diseappeared of his sights. He comes across the gigantic subspace orb encapsulating the beach and a quartet of Subspace versions of the captured fighters start coming out of the orb, including another Ridley. Lucas is frightened as he is not prepared to take on all of these enemies and runs away, only for the new Subspace Ridley to come after him. Lucas trips over and seems hopeless, until Captain Falcon jumps in and Falcon Punches the Subspace Ridley. He asks if the young boy is alright and asks him to stand back, but Lucas reassures he can help out, as the trio of Subspace Kumatora, Geno and Syrup appear in front of them. After the fight, Falcon remembers the events of the Subspace Emissary and asks for Lucas's help to find someone that can help them stop the new Subspace invasion: the Ancient Minister, R.O.B. Falcon uses the Blue Falcon to reach the Abandoned Island, where the Ancient Minister hides.

SSB Mario Series MARIO SSB Mario Series
Mario SSBUltimate
MarioHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Fireball
A fiery projectile that bounces on the ground upon contact. Deals barely any damage or knockback, but it can disrupt the opponent.
Side Special Cape
Mario throws his cape in front of him. A short range move that deals a small amount of damage and no knockback, but if used correctly, it can reflect projectiles or switch the direction the opponent is facing, depending of what Mario hits.
Up Special Super Jump Punch
Mario leaps upwards with his fist raised. The attack is stronger on the start-up. The move only deals damage while Mario is moving upwards.
Down Special Mario Tornado
Mario spins in place and then throws his hands in the air. Deals multiple hits and can KO at very high percentages.
Final Smash Mario Finale
Mario releases a powerful fireball that continously moves forwards and increases in size. The fighters caught by the fireball will be pushed to the stage's Blast Zone, losing a stock in the process.
Character Theme: Jump Up, Super Star from Super Mario Odyssey

Nintendo's most recognizable character, Mario has been a major part of Nintendo ever since his debut in the 1981 arcade game Donkey Kong and has been an essential part of Smash since its very first game. The red overalls plumber has participated in almost 300+ games ever since his conception and is one of gaming's most beloved characters.

As a fighter in Smash, Mario is an easy to learn character with no major gameplay gimmicks. Mario is a quick fighter, able to rack up damage fast. While not particuraly hard-hitting, Mario's moves allow him to take control of the battle in his favor, with many three special moves that can easily disrupt an unknowing opponnent. Mario's lack of a killing move without some major build-up makes the matchup against those who are able to KO at lower percentage to be less in his favor.

SSB Mario Series LUIGI SSB Mario Series
Luigi SSBUltimate
LuigiHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Thunderball
A variation of Mario's fireball, but it goes straight forwards and instead of fire, it is electricity. Otherwise, it has the same propreties.
Side Special Luigi Missile
Luigi charges up and when the input is released, Luigi is launched forwards. The move has a sweetspot and if it hits, it can KO opponents even at low percentages.
Up Special Super Jump Punch
Similar to Mario, but it has a shorter start-up and it has higher KOing chances at the start.
Down Special Luigi Tornado
Same as Mario's but it has a higher range than Mario and Luigi finishes his tornado by throwing his hands in the air, making it a KOing option.
Final Smash Poltergust 5000
Luigi pulls out the Poltergust 5000 and it goes wild, sucking everything close to it, including opponents. After sometime, it will spit out the opponents inside the Poltergust 5000, launching them out of the stage.
Character Theme: GCN Luigi's Mansion from Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

The red plumber's cowardly yet brave brother, Luigi has been Mario's sidekick ever since his debut. Luigi has gained a personality of being scared of a lot of things, especially the paranormal, but he will still push himself to save whoever is in need. Luigi has gained abilities separate from his brother during the series duration, although he still shares moves with him.

Luigi is a semi-clone of Mario, he is lighter than Mario and has a higher jump. His moves have different propreties, such as the Thunderball, which is electricity-based instead of fire-based and the Super Jump Punch has a faster start-up than Mario's.

SSB Mario Series PEACH SSB Mario Series
Peach SSBUltimate
PeachHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Toad
Peach puts Toad in front of her. If she is attacked while holding Toad, Toad will release spores, negating the opponent's attack.
Side Special Peach Bomber
Peach launches herself forwards. If she hits an opponent, a heart will appear behind them, as the opponent is launched in the opposite direction. Deals medium damage and low knockback, not very reliable as a KO option.
Up Special Peach Parasol
Peach jumps upwards with her Parasol open, making her fall slower to the ground. While jumping and opening her parasol, the parasol can hurt opponents, dealing a minimal amount of damage and no knockback.
Down Special Vegetable
Peach pulls a vegetable out of the ground, which she can use as a throwable item. There's a small chance Peach can pull out a Bob-omb instead of a vegetable.
Final Smash Peach Blossom
Peach dances as the opponents fall asleep around her. Peaches start spawning on the stage. After she stops dancing, she can pick up the peaches to heal herself and attack the sleeping opponents.
Character Theme: Peach's Castle from Mario Kart Arcade GP DX

The princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, Peach's role in Mario's adventures seems to be ever changing. Debuting as the princess in need of rescue, she would later join Mario on his journey through subcon in the next game, only to be kidnapped again in the next installment. Between the one in need of rescue, one of the main protagonists or just an ally, Peach has assumed many roles in the Mario series.

As a Smash fighter, Peach is relatively unchanged. She is a mediumweight fighter with a lot of fast moves, but not a lot of KOing options. It takes a while until Peach is able to defeat opponents and her most reliable KO options, her Smash attacks, have a pitful short range.

SSB Mario Series BOWSER SSB Mario Series
Bowser SSBUltimate
BowserHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Fire Breath
Bowser stays in place and breathes fire. The longer the input is held, the smaller the flames will get.
Side Special Flying Slam
Bowser claws forwards. If an opponent is hit by it, Bowser will grab them and leap diagonally upwards and then slam on the ground.
Up Special Whirlng Fortress
Bowser retreats to his shell and spins in place, gaining a small amount of horizontal momentum.
Down Special Bowser Bomb
Bowser leaps diagonally upwards and slams on the ground. If used on the air, Bowser will slam to the ground from where he is on the air.
Final Smash Giga Punch
Bowser turns into Giga Bowser and appears in the background. A crosshair appears as the player is able to move it and pressing any button besides the control stick will make Bowser punch in the direction of the crosshair. If there happens to be opponents in the crosshair by the time Bowser punches, they will be immediately Star KO'd.
Character Theme: Bowser Battle 1 from Super Mario Odyssey

The leader of the Koopa Troop, Bowser is Mario's archnemesis ever since his debut. The Koopa King is a threating foe that always gets stronger to prepare for his next dastardly plan. Bowser no longer speaks with realistic animal noises, instead his voice is more similar to his appearance in games like Super Mario Odyssey, voiced by Kenny James.

Bowser is relatively unchanged from previous Smash games. Bowser is a large heavyweight character. Slow yet very strong. Bowser lacks projectiles which makes the matchup against them difficult for Bowser. Although Bowser is very strong and has a lot of KO options, his biggest weakness is his lack of speed. Bowser is severely outmatched against faster fighters.

SSB Mario Series GENO SSB Mario Series
72 - Geno
Geno Stock
Neutral Special Geno Beam
A chargable laser. Hold down the input to increase the length of the beam.
Side Special Geno Whirl
Geno shoots out a disc-like projectile. Its damage is bigger if it hits an opponent farther away.
Up Special Geno Boost
Geno is launched upwards, propelled by small stars. If he lands on the ground succesfully without being interrupted, he gains a small power boost.
Down Special Geno Blast
Geno raises his hands upwards. When the input is released, Geno makes light beams fall out of the skies directly in front of him. The longer the input is held, the more beams will appear, with a maximum of three.
Final Smash Geno Flash
Geno turns into a cannon and releases a powerful explosion, which expands quickly, taking out almost everyone close to it.
Character Theme: Beware the Forest's Mushrooms from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars

A warrior from Star Road who takes over the body of a wooden doll in order to help Mario and his party to defeat Smithy and his forces from taking over the entire Mushroom Kingdom, even including Bowser's territory. Geno is a powerful magical fighter and alongside Mallow, he is one of the unique party members introduced in Super Mario RPG that wouldn't unfortunately ever reappear in a Mario game besides few cameos.

Geno is the definition of a glass cannon, he can hit opponents very hard, especially with his charged specials, although he is one of the most fragile characters in the cast, only slightly sturdier than Jigglypuff, the lightiest and weakest fighter in the cast in terms of damage intake. Geno is a fast, threating fighter but also fragile and floaty, being able to KO'd at absurdly low percentages in comparison to other normal fighters.

SSB Yoshi Series YOSHI SSB Yoshi Series
Yoshi SSBUltimate
YoshiHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Egg Lay
Yoshi shoots his tongue forwards. If an opponent is touched by it, they will be pulled inside Yoshi's belly and Yoshi will lay them inside an egg.
Side Special Egg Roll
Yoshi hides inside an egg and then rolls forwards. The direction of which Yoshi is rolling towards can be changed with a single press of a button. Yoshi will stop rolling once no input is used for a short time.
Up Special Egg Throw
Yoshi throws an egg upwards. While throwing the egg, his vertical speed is lowered significantly, giving Yoshi some air time and opportunity to go back to the stage.
Down Special Yoshi Bomb
Yoshi leaps diagonally upwards and then performs a Ground Pound. Thanks to the move's speed, it can be used to punish opponents with long attack times.
Final Smash Mega Eggdozer
A circle of Yoshis appear in the background, holding together a gigantic egg. Yoshi goes to join them and their combined strength sends the gigantic egg flying towards the stage, hitting every fighter in its path and sending them flying.
Character Theme: Athletic Theme from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island

Mario's trusty steed, the green dinosaur is one of Mario's major allies ever since his debut in the classic Super Mario World game and went on to star on his own series of games. He is more than capable of dealing with major threats and has taken on major threats all by himself.

Yoshi remains as he was in the previous Smash games, a floaty yet agile fighter with not much in firepower. His moveset has been untouched, with the exception of his Final Smash, which is now the Mega Eggdozer from Yoshi's New Island. Yoshi has multiple jumps and can utilize the Flutter Jump from his home series to recover himself easily.

SSB Donkey Kong Series DONKEY KONG SSB Donkey Kong Series
DonkeyKong SSBUltimate
DonkeyKongHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Giant Punch
A powerful punch. When the input is pressed, Donkey Kong will start revving up a punch. After a while, he will flash, meaning that the punch is fully charged. The more charged the Punch is, the stronger it is.
Side Special Headbutt
Donkey Kong slams his head forwards. If it hits an opponent, it makes them grounded and unable to move for a while.
Up Special Spinning Kong
Donkey Kong rotates himself around, decreasing his falling speed in the air. Hits the opponents multiple times but doesn't deals any knockback.
Down Special Hand Slap
Donkey Kong slaps the ground, causing small shockwaves around it. The attack is stronger if the opponent is closer to Donkey Kong. The input can be held and DK will continously slap, although the shockwaves will get smaller over time.
Final Smash Jungle Beat
Donkey Kong punches forwards. If he hits an opponent, he will unleash a flurry of punches before finishing off with one powerful punch, sending them flying across the stage.
Character Theme: DK Rap from Donkey Kong 64

He's the leader of the bunch, you know him well. He's returning to kick some tail, if he punches you, it's gonna hurt. He's bigger, faster, stronger too, he's the first member of the DK Crew. Huh!

Donkey Kong is faster this time around than he has been in previous games, replicating more of the feel of the character in his original Donkey Kong Country series. A lot of his moves come out faster than before. Donkey Kong is a heavyweight character, meaning he isn't easily knocked of the stage, but unlike other heavyweights, Donkey Kong is still a fast fighter. Takashi Nagasako voices Donkey Kong in this installment, replacing the realistic animal noises used since Brawl.

SSB Wario Series ASHLEY SSB Wario Series
Ashley super smash bros wii u download by jerichoakemi-d8gh6sc
Ashley Stock
Neutral Special Monster Flower
Ashley casts a spell, summmoning a small Monster Flower that tries to eat whatever is in front of it. If it manages to bite something, they get temporarily stunned inside the flower's belly.
Side Special Total Drag
Ashley moves her wand and causes a small explosion in front of her. If the explosion hits an opponent, Ashley uses her wand to move the opponent and then throw it away from her.
Up Special Flying Broom
Ashley whistles and a flying broom comes flying towards her very fast. If she is hit while on the broom, she will be helpless in the air.
Down Special Purple Cloud

Final Smash Pantalones Giganticus
Ashley casts a spell on Red, which makes him gigantic. The gigantic Red puts Ashley on his shoulder as Ashley commands him to attack the fighters in the stage.
Character Theme: Ashley's Song from WarioWare Gold

A witch that lives alone in the woods alongside her pet, the little imp Red. How she came in contact with Wario and became a part of Wario's micrograme company is unknown, but she is one of the mainstays of the WarioWare franchise, debuting in the first game in the series and making major appearances since then. In her WarioWare appearances, she is seen trying out different spells or other kinds of magic through different methods.

Ashley's gameplay is inspired by her appearance in WarioWare cutscenes as well as her minigames and her appearance as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. 4. She is a mixed ranged fighter, with her stronger attacks requiring a set-up to make them useful, as they have odd angles and effects. Ashley can inflict different status effects on opponents with her different spells, allowing her to control the match in her favor.

Link SSBL
LinkHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Duplex Bow
Link shoots an arrow with his bow. Can be used to disrupt the opponent. If the arrow falls on the stage, Link can pick it up and fire two arrows.
Side Special Dragonbone Boko Club
Link holds up the Boko Club and swings it with all his might. A slow move with a lot of start up but with a powerful payoff, able to KO at medium percentages.
Up Special Revali's Gale
Link is swept upwards by a powerful gale of wind that pushes him upwards. Link cannot use this move again while the gale is still active on the screen.
Down Special Remote Bomb
Link throws a bomb. The bomb will remain there until Link presses the input again or at least a full minute passes without Link touching it. Other fighters can pick it up and throw it as well.
Final Smash Ancient Bow and Arrow
Link leaps backwards and pulls out the Ancient Bow and Arrow, firing one powerful shot that decimates everything in its line of fire. It instantly KO's anything that is in front of Link.
Character Theme: Hyrule Castle (Exterior) from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

The hero of time, Link is one of the three wielders of the Triforce, holding the Triforce of Courage. He is reincarnated through out time to help the bearer of the Triforce of Wisdom against the one that bears the Triforce of Power, who seeks to utilize its power for their own evil deeds. Like with Ultimate, this Link is based of the Breath of the Wild incarnation. Link is equipped by default with the Master Sword and Hylian Shield, but continous usage of those items can make them break through the battle, forcing Link to utilize the Traveler's Sword and the Wooden Shield for a while.

Link's moveset has been changed to fit with Breath of the Wild. The biggest change is the removal of the Gale Boomerang, limiting Link's ranged potential in combat. Link is now a close ranged fighter, while having options for long range, he excels in close combat, where his power has been increased. Link has been made slightly slower than Ultimate but sturdier this time, being in the same weight class as Mewtwo now.

SSB Metroid Series SAMUS SSB Metroid Series
Samus SSBUltimate
SamusHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Charge Shot
Samus starts charging up a power blast of energy. Samus can interrupt the charge by moving but the charge will stay where it was when she resumes it. When it is fully charged, Samus will flash. Samus's charge shot can now only be fired when its full, as pressing the B button again will make Samus do the Melee Counter from Samus Returns.
Side Special Missile
Samus will shot one of two missiles: a normal one, that homes in the nearest opponent or the Super Missile, that goes straight forward but has a bigger damage and knockback output than the normal one by a huge margin.
Up Special Screw Attack
Samus leaps upwards and surrounds herself with an electrical shield around her. Doesn't deals much damage and deals no knockback, but it is a very useful recovery.
Down Special Bomb
Samus places a bomb while in the Morph Ball form. If Samus has a fully charged shot, she can instead lay multiple bombs instead of shooting the charged shot, like how it works in Super Metroid.
Final Smash Zero Laser
Samus shoots a powerful laser beam out of her arm cannon. The beam traps the opponents within itself and when it ends, it launches them off the stage.
Character Theme: Theme of Samus from Metroid: Samus Returns

A former member of the Galactic Federation turned bounty hunter, Samus is a lone wolf who works to hunt down whatever species is threating the galaxy this time. Armed with a powerful bodysuit created by an extinct kind of bird people, Samus is a powerful foe that has made entire species extinct by herself.

Samus is unchanged from previous games, she is agile but her moves do not reflect her agility. Her attacks have a bit of start lag and while at their full power they are deadly, getting to them to their full power is difficult. Samus gains her Melee Counter from Samus Returns to use while charging, giving her at least a defensive option while charging up one of her stronger attacks.

SSB Kirby Series KIRBY SSB Kirby Series
Kirby SSBU
KirbyHeadSSBU
Neutral Special Inhale
Kirby inhales whatever it is in front of him. If he swallows a non-character, he can spit out the item like a star, similar to his home series. If he inhales an enemy, he can press the down button while the opponent is in his mouth to copy their Neutral Special, which replaces Kirby's Inhale special.
Side Special Hammer
Kirby hits the opponent with a flaming hammer. The attack is stronger during its start, where it has a higher chance to KO an opponent.

Final Smash Ultra Blade
Kirby rushes forwards. If he touches an opponent, he will trip them and then will unleash a flurry of sword strikes with the Ultra Blade before finishing them with a powerful blade swipe.
Character Theme: Green Gardens from Kirby: Star Allies

A little pink puffball who is much stronger than what he appears. Kirby's power to copy the ability of the enemies he inhale allows him to use the powers of his foes to defeat them, which is very useful when Kirby is called to defeat which eldrich horror threatens the galaxy. Be by himself or by his Star Allies, Kirby is the legendary star warrior and there's a good reason why they call him that.

Kirby is relatively unchanged from previous Smash games, recieving minimal changes from his appearance in Ultimate. A lightweight fighter with trapping abilities, Kirby is very surprisingly strong, having a lot of reliable KOing options. Kirby can absorb the power of the opponent, which means he can utilize their Neutral Special upon inhaling the opponent, gaining a Ability Hat that mimicks the opponents headwear.

SSB Kirby Series DAROACH SSB Kirby Series
KSA Daroach
Daroach-0
Neutral Special Ice Shot
Daroach releases a beam of ice. The input can be held down in order to charge it, but Daroach will remain immobile while charging.

Up Special Daroach Bomb

Down Special Triple Star
Daroach attacks using the Triple Star, causing three star projectiles to be spawned in, aimed at three different directions. When used in the air, they are aimed downwards instead of forwards.
Final Smash Squeak Squad
Daroach whistles and this causes the whole Squeak Squad to fill the stage in. The smaller members of the Squeak Squad come on the stage first and if they catch an opponent, it will go on a cutscene where they attacked by Spinni, Storo and Doc before Daroach fires an Ultra Ice Laser at them.
Character Theme: Here Comes the Squeaks! from Kirby: Star Allies

The treasure obssesed leader of the Squeak Squad, Daroach's goal was to find endless power. He did, but not in the way he wanted, as he became the host of a villianous threat known as Dark Nebula. Thanks for his driven of treasure, he unintentionally entered in conflict with Kirby which allowed Kirby to defeat the Dark Nebula that was taking over him. After that, Daroach's treasure hunts did not stop but he took on a more supportive role for Kirby.

As a fighter, Daroach is a small fighter, only slightly smaller than King Dedede. He is floaty like Meta Knight and a lightweight like Kirby. Daroach fights utilizing the elements from his boss fight in Kirby: Squeak Squad and his moveset in Kirby Triple Deluxe. He is an interesting character, as thanks to his pursuit of treasure, he has acquired different items that he uses as part of his moveset, giving him an interesting range of options.

Fox has been relatively unchanged from previous Smash games, but he has reacquired traits from Melee, including the Reflector mechanics from Melee, giving Fox a bigger range of combo potential thanks to the usefulness of the Reflector as a combo starter.

Pikachu SSBUltimate

Pikachu has recieved a major visual change from previous games, with all of his moves being changed to show electricity. Pikachu's moves are all STAB (same-type attack bonus) moves, but some of them have only changed visually. Pikachu remains a glass cannon, able to put out a lot of damage but not being able to take much in return. With the addition of Thunder Charge, Pikachu is able to increase his already incredible strength for extra firepower to ensure a match won.

This is carried over to Ultra Burst, where Pachirisu, despite being a lightweight, can still take a lot of punishment before being KO'd. Their sturdiness can be even better with the addition of Follow Me, which allows Pachirisu to take an intentional hit for a lower damage cost and surprise the opponent with a follow up move.

Downloadable Content

Like with Super Smash Bros. 4 and (presumably) Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Ultra Smash Bros. Burst includes post-launch downloadable content in the form of new fighters, stages, music and items.

Wave 1

Wave 1 was announced in ??/??/??.

  • New playable fighters.
    • Spring Man stock icon Smashboards Spring Man and DrCoyleStock Dr. Coyle from the ARMS series were the first two confirmed characters in this wave. Spring Man is a fast heavyweight character with tremendous range, although his moves have a very noticeable start and ending lag. Coyle has similar attributes, but also can levitate in the air like Peach.
    • Mio Amakura from Tecmo's Fatal Frame series was as the third character included in this wave. Her twin sister, Mayo Amakura, is available as an alternate costume for Mio. She is a mechanically unusual fighter, having two modes of movement: Field and Viewfinder. While in field mode, Mio can only utilize quick flashes of her camera, which is her preferred method of combat, which is not very effective in this mode, but it allows her to move faster. In viewfinder mode, her speed is decreased but she gains access to more precise shoots, allowing her camera attacks to be more effective.
    • Agnes Stock Agnès Oblige from Square Enix's Bravely Default series was confirmed as the fourth character included in this wave. Agnès is a combo focused character, with her main gameplay gimmick revolving around Battle Points. Playing more defensively allows Agnès to stock up on Battle Points, the more she has, the more actions she can do. Actions using Battle Points are faster, allowing her to quickly create combos out of her moves. Agnes's appearance in Bravely Second is available as an alternate costume.
    • Finally, the last character to be included in Wave 1 was DanteStock Dante from Capcom's Devil May Cry series. A fast swordfighter who also wields twin pisolts, Dante's gameplay style is a combination of his four different gameplay styles from his home series, with him being able to switch between styles with a press of a single button. Dante's moves are extremely fast but not very strong by themselves, which allows him to rack up damage very quickly. Older Dante from Devil May Cry 5 is available as an alternate costume.
  • New stages.
    • Spring Stadium from ARMS was the first confirmed stage to be included in Wave 1, as the home stage for both Spring Man and Dr. Coyle.
    • Minikami Village from Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly was the second confirmed stage to be included in Wave 1, as the home stage for Mio Amakura.
    • The Great Chasm from Bravely Default was the third confirmed stage to be included in Wave 1, as the home stage for Agnès Oblige.
    • Temen-ni-gru from Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening was confirmed as the fourth and last stage to be included in Wave 1, as the home stage for Dante.
  • New music.
  • New alternate costumes. These were offered free of charge, with the exception of the ones for DLC characters, which can only be acquired by buying the character itself.
