Nintendo announced that the new Super Smash Bros game is going to be named "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate," and it's going to have every character ever featured in the series so far.

They do mean EVERYONE -- including characters like Solid Snake, who hasn't appeared in a Smash game for a decade.

Of course, old favorites are still here, albeit with some tweaks. Check out Link's new Breath of the Wild tunic.

That doesn't mean you won't be able to dress up in traditional green, though.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Although this Zelda isn't from Breath of The Wild. Nintendo says that's because she was more into research, than action. Instead, we get a design inspired by A Link Between Worlds

There's a new princess in town: Daisy joins the fray!

Daisy is actually a "echo fighter," which means her moves are derived from an existing character.

The Inklings are finally here, and they bring with them style -- and multiple weapons! You'll be able to use different weapons featured in Splatoon 2 depending on what move you use.

The Squid Sisters will also be in the game as an assist trophy -- which shrinks the stage, making it easier to get knocked out!

Every stage will have "battlefield" and "Final Destination" modes!

In timed matches, the fighter in the lead will flash with light -- giving other players a target!

Some of the core game mechanics have been tweaked, too. The more you dodge, the less effective your dodge will be!

Damage is higher in 1-on-1 battles, too -- making them just a little more intense.

Have an Amiibo collection? All previous Amiibo will be compatible with Smash, as long as the character is in the game... even if that a Amiibo is for a different game!

Don't worry, competitors: Smash Bros. Ultimate will support the Nintendo Gamecube controller.
