All The Characters, Stages, Assist Trophies, And Pokémon Confirmed For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is poised to be one of this holiday season's biggest releases. When the Switch entry in the long-running franchise was unveiled at E3 2018, fans were shocked to learn about the scope of the new title; not only was the Smash team adding a few new characters and stages, but also including every character and a huge percentage of the stages that have ever appeared in the series in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

With more than 70 characters and 100 stages announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we decided to gather them all in one place and organize them by franchise. In addition, we've scoured footage from the several times Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been shown to compile a list of Pokémon appearing both in Poké Balls and the Pokémon-themed stages.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate not only includes every playable character from the series' past entries, but also a handful of new characters. If you're curious as to whether your favorite gaming icon is confirmed for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. title for Switch, check out our list, organized by franchise of origin, below.

The 20 Greatest Redheads In Video Games

The 20 Greatest Redheads In Video Games

In honor of National Love Your Red Hair Day – which I totally knew was a thing before today – I am challenging resident red-haired Game Informer editor Kyle Hilliard for the title of ultimate office ginger. Back in 2012, he listed the top 43 redheads in video games using “science.” Today, I have reworked the algorithm to bring you the updated list of the best red-haired characters we should remember on this fantastic national holiday.

An exile-become-champion, Aloy is the best hunter of robot dinosaurs the Nora tribe has to offer. Not only that, but she is a big early adopter for technology, meaning she’s going to be way ahead of the curve in the job market if the hunting thing doesn’t work out.

This pint-sized archer will fill you full of holes faster that you can say “boy.” One of his greatest talents is staying out of the way when the real god is throwing down, but Atreus proves his priorities are in order after finding out he’s a demi-god. Asking the important questions, Atreus immediately inquires if he can use his powers to change into an animal. Perhaps a red squirrel?

Hands-On With Hearthstone's Rastakhan's Rumble

Hands-On With Hearthstone's Rastakhan's Rumble

Blizzards troll-themed Hearthstone expansion Rastakhan's Rumble is playable at BlizzCon 2018, so I dove in to a few duels . While these duels are an odd format - using single-player mechanics and cards from the new Rumble Run dungeon-crawl experince in a two-layer match format - they do demonstrate some of the new mechanics, characters, and cards admirably.

Of most importance are the game-altering shrines (these are not available in standard play and will be a large part of the Rumble Run). My rogue shrine allows all spells I play to be cast twice - my opponent has a mage shrine that adds one spell power for each spell card in hand(!). These effects are obviously way too strong for any kind of competive format, but are sure to make the new single-player content interesting. Shrines have health and can be destroyed, but they come back three turns after death, so balancing the life of a shrine over just smashing your opponent down presents players with an constant conundrum.

Eventually the match ended with me eating two enormous thirteen point fireballs to the face, but the mechanics in the expansion are shaping up to be fun. Overkill allows you to gain a special effect for doing more than a minions life in damage with cards that have it, and loa, spirits, and troll faction leaders all add a big dose of flavor.
