It's now December 7th in many parts of the world, which means Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is officially three years old. The Nintendo Switch fighter launched back in 2018, quickly becoming one of the system's must-own games. While the game debuted with an impressive line-up of fighters, the last three years saw the release of several DLC characters, which led to years of debate, and a significant amount of conjecture. In October, Nintendo closed out the game's Fighter's Pass Vol. 2 DLC with the release of Sora, the highly-requested protagonist from Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts franchise.
While the fighter debate has officially come to a close (at least until the next game is announced), there are still plenty of reasons for fans to stick with the game; after all, it's one of the system's very best multiplayer games! In honor of the game's anniversary, many Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans have taken to social media to celebrate the game. With its massive cast of fighters and stages, it seems like a safe bet the game will remain a fan favorite long into the future!

Wow. Its now been 3 years since Everyone has all returned.This just still doesn't feel real, if I want to be honest. Like, where does the time fly? No other future game will ever be better than Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

It's been one heck of a journey!
It’s been a long, strange trip, with its highs and lows. But no matter how you may look at it, from the teaser to the very last character, this legacy is simply unreal.

Bringing back all previous fighters was a great move.

I cried when they revealed that Everyone was Here. I made so many close friends. Sora, a long-standing wanted fighter, finally arrived as well.
