In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, many of the fighters have been updated to reflect their most recent Switch renditions. For example, Mario will have his sentient hat Cappy that he wore in Super Mario Odyssey, while Link will feature his tunic from Breath of the Wild. The upcoming game will also introduce Echo Fighters, characters that are nearly clones of other fighters, but have slight variations in their fighting style.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is scheduled to release on December 7, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch. New amiibo figures for both Ridley and the Inkling Girl will be released as well, along with an amiibo for Daisy, which was not shown during the E3 presentation.
