Nintendo had quite a few surprise announcements during today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct and is definitely something to watch if you haven’t already. During the presentation, director Masahiro Sakurai revealed tons of new information on the game including new fighters, revealed the look of classics stages from previous titles and plenty of other things you can see in the video below.
When talking about the music in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Sakurai mentioned that there are over 800 tracks in the game. This number doesn’t include menu and fanfare music which then ups this number to almost 900. This equates to about 28 hours of music which is quite amazing when you think about it and it was also announced that you can enjoy the music anytime using the systems handheld mode even when the Nintendo Switch screen is off.
Music will be sorted by series, one off tracks or those that come from a series that doesn’t have a playable character will be added to a playlist called “others.”
And another important feature being added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming to My Music. Players will be able to select what tracks will be played during stages but rather than be limited to what what tracks are exclusive to that stage, it will be limited to that respective series as a whole. So if you select Great Plateau Tower from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you won’t be limited to only songs from that series but every single song from The Legend of Zelda series.
You can listen to some of these tracks right now at the official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate website.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released on the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
