If you’ve been sleeping on the Nintendo Switch, now’s a better time than ever to pick one up. Multiple retailers across the U.S. and beyond are selling the handheld-console hybrid with a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe inside for Black Friday.
In other Super Smash Bros. Ultimate news, Masahiro Sakurai, the series’ director, recently commented on how the game’s overall roster came together. Speaking of which, we also just went hands-on with the game’s entire cast at a Nintendo event.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will launch exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on December 7.
