E3 2018: Ridley is the Next New Challenger in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

So he wasn’t too big after all. Naturally, character reveals for any Smash title have been newsworthy in of themselves and that’s no different during this E3 when it was unveiled that Ridley — a character long debated and eagerly supported during the days leading up to the series’ 3DS/Wii U entrants — will be joining the roster.

Ridley joins the Inklings from Splatoon, as the second new challenger to enter the fray and as is tradition with all fighters, Nintendo also confirmed that Ridley would be getting his own Amiibo figure that is fully compatible with the game. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches December 7 exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. You can see Samus’ long-standing nemesis in action in his reveal trailer below.
