If Super Mario taught us anything it’s that Nintendo likes 35th anniversary years. That extends to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, though rather than take turns with their own events, five series are about to get together for one big Smash bash.
For three days starting 28/05, #SmashBrosUltimate will highlight series that turn 35 in 2021! The latest event tourney will feature fighters, stages and items from these celebrated series. pic.twitter.com/N50BXyn5NO

2021 is the 35th anniversary year for The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Kid Icarus, Castlevania, and Dragon Quest; as such the latest tournament event will be limited to just those long runners. It’s not just fighters either, as that exclusivity extends to stages and items as well. It’ll be an impressive chunk of Ultimate’s roster, and only four of them are swordsmen!
Fans of these five thirty-fiver franchises can look forward to their weekend long online tourney celebration, beginning May 28th.
