If Super Smash Bros. conjures memories of Mountain Dew and delivery pizza while you and your friends hacked it out between Mario and Link and Pikachu on a school night, then Nintendo wants to bring back those nostalgic vibes with Ultimate, the latest chapter in the crossover fighter.
Announced Tuesday at E3 in California, Nintendo’s number one goal with Ultimate is to bring together every single challenger from past titles into one game. That means Sonic. Solid Snake. Cloud Strife. Mew. If you played it, they’re back and ready to strike that victory pose. You’ll even see Ridley, the O.G. antagonist to Metroid‘s Samus Aran, joining the fray.

Updates to the game also reflect changes across the various Nintendo franchises since the Switch arrived. For example, Link has his Sheikah Slate, and Hyrule’s Great Plateau Tower is a new stage.
And if you’re really longing for that old school feel, the Game Cube Controller is compatible and ready for action.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate comes out December 7, 2018 for the Nintendo Switch, but is available for preorder now.
