With a game like Smash there’s no way you’re not thinking about the past. With some characters and references that are over forty years old now, it’s no wonder nostalgia rides high. But hey, just because the retro backlog’s massive doesn’t mean you shouldn’t make some time for more contemporary fare. If you’re a fighter who debuted between 2010 and 2019, then it’s your time to shine!

Inkling and Joker are up front, which might have a little something to do with the massive hit status of both Splatoon and Persona 5. With that logic, maybe that’s why Steve is flying high above all the rest…
Along with those featured above, you’ll see Greninja, Dark Pit, and half the Fire Emblem characters as fair game. The chronological restriction will be applying to stages as well, letting you relive all those memories from the last decade starting July 2nd.
