Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fighting game featuring Nintendo’s ‘all-stars’ as playable characters. The gameplay is a dramatic departure from other fighting games, such as Street Fighter. Instead of winning by depleting an opponent’s life bar, players seek to knock opposing characters off a stage to win.

Mario vs Pikachu?!? Take control of your favorite Nintendo character and prepare to do battle in our Geekdom Super Smash Bros Tournament organized by Super Smash Bros. Qatar. You better have good balance though, one slip and it could be curtains.
