The game is set to be released as a launch title for Nintendo upcoming console the NX and was announced at E3 2015.

Super Smash Bros 5. just like past smash games has many different modes. However this game is said to have more modes than any previous title.

Classic Mode

Classic Mode just like the previous Super Smash Bros games puts players up against multiple different stages. The different types of stages include Normal Smash Matches, Special Matches where you have matches such as team matches, or verse opponents with special attributes and also Stadium Stages. The player must defeat 10 stages consecutively each time you play the mode. At the end there is a boss you must defeat being Master Hand or Master Hand and Crazy Hand on Hard mode or higher. When completing classic mode you will earn a character trophy. Difficulty levels include: Easy, Normal, Hard, Very Hard, Insane.

All-Star Mode

Players fight must fight against every character in the Super Smash Bros 5.roster. It starts from oldest to newest characters similarly to Smash 3DS. These characters are fought in groups of 6-8 characters. During the match you can heal yourself 3 times using Heart Containers. If you are KO'd you must begin the match all over again.

Master Orders and Crazy Orders

Both of these modes return from Smash Wii U and act exactly as they did in that game.

Home-Run Contest

Home-run Contest returns and again is able to be played with up to 4 players.

Target Blast

Target Blast returns acting actually as it did in Smash Wii U however it now has 5 different stages instead of 3.

Multi-Man Smash

Multi-Man Smash is returning to Super Smash Bros 5 with its many different modes. These include 10-Man Smash, 100-Man Smash, 3-Minute Smash, 15-Minute Smash, Endless Smash, Rival Smash and Cruel Smash.

Smash Mode

Allows for 2 - 8 Player to fight against each other or CPU's ranging from level 1 to 9 in regular smash matches. Special Mode also returns if players want to mix up their battles a little bit.

New Features

Super Smash Bros 5. has many new features concerning stages, characters and much more. Most of these features either give the player more control over the game or enhance the experience of playing the game. The new features announced so far include:


Stages now all have an 8 player version and players are given the ability to remove stage hazards.

Character Aesthetics

Characters now even more closely resemble their looks in their respective franchises. Within battle characters now seem more conscious of what's going on. If they are about to be hit by a move they will look scared or shocked. Another change is that characters will now look toward their opponents no matter where they are. If an opponent is above them they will look up and if one is behind them they will look over their shoulder etc. Also as characters take damage they will look more and more as if they were beat up. For example the more damage Samus takes the more cracked her visor looks and the more scratches there are on her suit. This is a feature that was scrapped from Super Smash Bros Brawl.


All characters now have a unique victory theme when winning a match. Characters now only have one custom version of each of their special moves.


Development for Super Smash Bros 5. began straight after development of Super Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS's DLC finished. Nintendo had asked him to do this as they wanted the game to be a launch title for their upcoming NX console. Sakurai for the first few months of development was given a break and only worked on the design aspects of the game from his home. Meanwhile Sora Ltd. and Namco Bandai began developing the game. After his break Sakurai then rejoined the team and continued making the game. Sakurai's goal for this game was to make this "the best Smash Bros game ever made".

Sakurai wanted this smash game to not only add new characters to the game but to add to the existing characters as well. Sakurai has stated that, "We will be adding many surprising and unique fighters to the game". He also stated, "We want fans to be able to play as characters from past games and them feel new again". In an interview after the games announcement Sakurai was asked why the character Shovel Knight was added to the game. Sakurai said, that "during development Yacht Club Games reached out to me and asked about adding Shovel Knight to the game. We agreed due to Shovel Knight's popularity in the to the Smash Ballot".
