Our top pick of the week?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
There is a reason Smash Bros has become one of the most beloved Nintendo games. The absolute mayhem has created fantastic memories with my friends and family, gamers and non gamers alike.
Ultimate sees the return of every character in the franchise so far as well as plenty of new ones. Will the additional characters and game modes lead to even more fun? Only time will tell but it’s a fairly safe bet.
