SmashAftermathLogo

Super Smash Bros. Aftermath, known in Japan as 最大のほつれスマッシュブラザーズ (Greatest Fray Smash Brothers) is a platformer fighting game and the final installment of the Super Smash Bros. series. It was developed by Bandai Namco, HAL Laboratory and Sora Ltd and released in December 2023 on the Nintendo Switch as its last big release. A port for the next Nintendo console was also confirmed. While Masahiro Sakurai is still contributing to this project as the lead creative director, he's no longer the game director due to health issues. Instead, Jay Okumura takes his role as the game director for Aftermath.

Aftermath brings back all playable characters and songs from Ultimate and adds new ones. While some stages return from Ultimate, others are removed and replaced with new ones. The game's main feature is the Story Mode, Conquest of Dawn, an adventure mode very similar to Subspace Emissary and World of Light, but with more cinematics and interaction between characters.


Gameplay

Aftermath brings back most of the game modes included in Ultimate, with only Spirits being removed. The game also expands some existing game modes, with the goal of making them more appealing to new and casual players.

  • Smash: The classic battle mode. New sub-modes are also added.

Playable Characters

Aftermath brings back all the playable characters from Ultimate, changing the movesets of them completely in some cases. Echo Fighters also return in Aftermath, labeled with an epsilon (ε) symbol. Characters are now organized by series, and unlike in Ultimate, characters now have 12 alternate costumes. Some of them change the appearance of the playable character completely. Only a limited amount of characters are available since the start, with the remaining characters being unlockable by three main methods: after winning a Smash battle, after winning a Smash Tower battle or unlocking them in Conquest of Dawn.

Mr. Video Game himself. Mario is the hero of the Mushroom Kingdom and Nintendo's official mascot, as well as the Super Mario series protagonist. The plumber has been in adventures all around the globe, including castles, islands, kingdoms and even the galaxy.

In Aftermath, Mario is a short middleweight with average speed and attacks, and has a lot of changes from his Ultimate appearance, including new Side, Up and Down Specials (his Up Special using a Water gimmick).

Neutral Special - Fireball: Mario will shoot a fireball from his hand. The fireball travels a short distance before dissapearing if it doesn't hit an opponent or object and does minor damage to opponents. Its trajectory changes depending on the surface of the stage.

Side Special - Cappy Toss: Mario will toss Cappy, his sidekick from Super Mario Odyssey. Cappy can be tossed in 4 directions and if the player keeps the button pressed he will stay there spinning. If Cappy is spinning Mario can use him as a platform to jump.

Up Special - F.L.U.D.D: Mario will use F.L.U.D.D with the Rocket Nozzle, propulsing him into the air for all the time he wants. However, when the water runs out he won't be able to do this move and has to use his Shield Special to re-fill the water meter, thus making this move able again.

Down Special - Star Spin: Mario will do a quick spin with his arms outstretched while surrounded by star energy. This move can block projectiles if used in the correct moment and can also damage opponents. If Mario uses this move on the air he'll elevate a bit.

Shield Special - Water Refill: Mario will pull out a water bottle to re-fill F.L.U.D.D. Once the water meter is full, this move can't be used until Mario uses his down special again.

FINAL SMASH - Mario Finale: Mario will launch two giant fireballs that go vertically, damaging all opponents that come in contact with them.

Mario's victory theme is a remix of the Super Mario Bros. Level Complete theme.

Mario's special alternate costumes include his Builder suit from Super Mario Maker, his Wedding suit from Super Mario Odyssey and his Delfino suit from Super Mario Sunshine. Kirby's Mario transformation gives him Mario's cap and mustache, alongside his Fireball special move.

In Aftermath, Luigi is a tall middleweight who is floaty but has poor air speed. His moveset has been completely revamped, now using the Poltergust G-00 from Luigi's Mansion 3 for most of his attacks.

Neutral Special - Suction: Luigi will use Poltergust G-00's Suction function, creating a vortex of wind in front of him.

Side Special - Suction Shot: Luigi will use Poltergust G-00's Suction Shot function, shooting up a plunger with a long string attached to it. If the plunger reaches an opponent or an object, Luigi will slam them to the ground, similar to the Slam function. This move can be charged to increase its range.

Up Special - Ghost Tornado: Luigi will create a tornado of spectral energy under him, propulsing him to the air. Opponents can get trapped in the tornado, but it doesn't deal much damage nor knockback, serving more as a recovery move.

Down Special - Burst: Luigi will use Poltergust G-00's Burst function, launching him a bit into the air while creating a small shockwave around himself. Opponents reached by the shockwave will be also pushed a bit into the air. This move serves well as a recovery for grabs.

FINAL SMASH - Poltergust G-00: Luigi will use the Suction function again, but with way more power, creating a big tornado of spectral energy. Opponents trapped in the tornado get stunned afterwards... if they survive to the attack.

Luigi's victory theme is a remix of the Luigi's Mansion main theme.

A galactic bounty hunter who works for the Galactic Federation and other organizations, Samus Aran uses her Power Suit in battle to go against the evil Space Pirates. Her Power Suit has a lot of functions, including firing powerful energy beams, missiles and transforming into a "morph ball".

In Aftermath, Samus' moveset mostly remains unchanged from Ultimate, aside from using Zero Suit Samus' old Final Smash. Her design has also been changed to the Power Suit from Metroid: Samus Returns.

Neutral Special - Charge Shot: Samus starts charging a ball of energy from her arm cannon, shooting it if the player stops holding the button. However, if this move is fully charged Samus will keep her charge shot (with her arm cannon starting to glow) and then be able to fire the ball of energy.

Side Special - Missile: Samus will shoot a homing missile from her arm cannon, that is slow but powerful and creates a tiny explosion whe hitting an opponent. If this move is used like a Smash attack, Samus will shoot a "Super Missile" instead. Super Missiles are faster and more powerful.

Up Special - Screw Attack: Samus will rise upwards while surrounded by an electric field that will hit opponents. This move is fast and has good range, but leaves Samus in a helpless state while falling down after doing this move.

Down Special - Morph Ball: Samus will transform into her Morph Ball version and shoot a bomb from her Power Suit. The bomb will explode in contact with an enemy, object or attack or will self-detonate after 5 seconds if it doesn't touch anything.

FINAL SMASH - Gunship: Samus jumps into her Gunship and then the player will be able to control a targeting reticle. Samus will then shoot a powerful beam from her Gunship to the target's spot.

Samus' victory theme is a remix of the Samus Appearance fanfare from Metroid Prime.
