Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Will Feature Over 800 Music Tracks; Players Can Listen to Music in Handheld Mode
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is putting a bigger focus on music, as the game's soundtrack will feature over 28 hours of music across 800+ tracks.
While the Super Smash Bros. series has always been heralded for the huge assortment of characters from various franchises it has collected, the games have also been noted for bringing together some truly classic video game music, and in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there will be plenty of it for fans of these franchises to enjoy anywhere you want.
During today’s Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, series director Masahiro Sakurai gave some more insight into the music that players will be able to experience throughout the anticipated fighting game, and get your ears ready, because there is a ton of it.
Overall, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will feature over 800 music tracks (900 including menu sound effects and more) across all of the different franchises and games that are included, which totals up to about 28 hours altogether for the game’s soundtrack.
Likewise, Sakurai also revealed that the soundtrack is available to listen to through the in-game menus, but compared to past games that had the music organized by stages, the music is now collected according to the music’s accompanying series. Additionally, a neat new feature that Switch owners can take advantage of is that players in handheld mode can use the Switch to listen to the game’s soundtrack on-the-go in a fashion similar to using an MP3 player.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release for Nintendo Switch on December 7th, 2018. If you have yet to pick up a copy of the game, you can head over to Amazon and pre-order the game right now before its release this holiday season.
