“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate”
“Ultimate” is the only word you could use to describe the latest entry in the Super Smash Bros. series. The whole gang is here: Mario, Pikachu, Sonic, Mega Man and many more – 82 different characters to play from across the game universe, all with their own style and attacks. Each match is frantic free play where you try to knock other players off the platform, and it’s great for old-school players and newbies alike, like this mom and son: “This classic game is classic for a reason Endless fun with multiple ways to challenge yourself […] There’s a bit of a learning curve […] but it keeps the game exciting. My 4 year old loves this game too and comes alive very vocally which is hilarious. Definitely recommend.” Right now, you can mash the buy button on this iconic title for just $50, saving $10.
