Super Smash Bros. is a fighting game for the arcade. These arcade machines can be found in various arcades and in Dave & Busters.

To play the game, players must insert coins. While at Dave & Busters, they must use a game card. This arcade game can be updated regularly to the latest version via internet connection by an arcade administrator using a specific code or password to get into the online features to update.

Arcade machine

The arcade machine features a specially designed 27-inch 4K HDR display at a refresh rate of 60hz and 1ms response time. A sound bar with hi-res stereo sound is built on the machine for crisp and distortion-free sound. Built inside the machine are specially designed NVIDIA chips with G-Sync to ensure smooth, distortion-free gameplay. Attached to the machine is a GameCube controller in either black or white depending on the arcade machine's color. From 2-8 machines may be adjacent to each other for multiple players in Vs. Mode.


Some characters, mostly from Ultimate, return to the arcade version. There are some future characters upcoming pending on the arcade machine updates. The palette swap feature is also available, with fighters having from a minimum of 8 to a maximum of 60 costumes.
