(Update) Amid all of these new character reveals, here’s a closer look at Wario and Samus’ movesets in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

WAHHHHHH

WAHHHHHHHHHHH

Wario is in the house with a brand new 3DS game, and now Nintendo is showcasing his personal stylings with an updated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate clip. Samus, who just hosted her first major game last year after a seven year hiatus (and will be a part of the upcoming Metroid Prime 4), is also present and accounted for.

In case you were curious as to whether or not Ultimate changes anything: Wario seems to be mostly the same mechanically, but will sport more Wario Land references. Samus is now faster overall and has more control over her abilities, including her charge shot. I only dabbled with the former but have been known to use Samus occasionally since Smash 64, so these changes are quite welcome.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will launch exclusively on Switch on December 7, 2018. As a reminder you can use the GameCube adapter from the Wii U to pick up and play like nothing has changed.
