We already knew that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is going all in with the characters and stages included. While we knew Nintendo was having fun with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's soundtrack since the reveal at E3 this year, series director Masahiro Sakurai dropped a ton of new information during today's Nintendo Direct.

Sakurai stated there are more than 800 tracks on the soundtrack, but if you include menu music and fanfare, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features more than 900 compositions. Sakurai also claimed that you if played all the music in Ultimate back to back, it would take 28 hours to get through all of it.

Like the Wii U and 3DS versions, you can select the tracks you want to play on each stage, and how frequently you want to hear them. However, this time around, you can select any tracks from the series, rather than the tracks for that particular game. This means that if you want to hear Wind Waker tracks on the Breath of the Wild stage, you can do that.

During today's Nintendo Direct focused on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, series director Masahiro Sakurai went over several details. One of the most impressive details involved how many stages this massive version of Nintendo's crossover fighter will contain.

According to Sakurai, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features 103 distinct stages. Each stage can be transformed into Battlefield and Omega forms, and every stage can be used in 8-player battles. In addition, all stages are available from the very beginning, so you don't need to unlock them.

Players can also toggle whether they want stage hazards to be active during any given battle. In addition, if you select the "Stage Morph" option before a battle, you can select two stages that the battlefield will transform between over the course of the fight.

In the E3 Direct, Assist Trophies like the returning Waluigi were shown off, but also new crossovers like Hudson's Bomberman.
