Today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct has revealed several modes that you will be able to battle it out in with the Nintendo Switch exclusive mascot brawler.

Those are Classic Mode, Stamina Battle, Tourney Mode, Smashdown, Training and Squad Strike, where players will compete in 5-on-5 or 3-on-3 skirmishes where they must use consecutive fighters in a single battle.

Nintendo has provided details for each of these, as below:

Classic Mode
The single-player mode in which players battle against a series of fighters will return in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Each fighter has a set of stages and opponents that she or he will face.

Stamina Battle
In addition to Time Battle and Stock Battle, Stamina Battle is also one of the standard modes in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In Stamina Battle, players fight to deplete each other’s stamina until only one fighter is left standing.

Squad Strike
When playing Squad Strike, players will participate in 5-on-5 or 3-on-3 skirmishes, with each player using either five or three consecutive fighters in one battle.

Tourney Mode
Up to 32 players can participate in Tourney mode, making it great for parties or events with a lot of people. And since Nintendo Switch can be played anywhere, these tournaments can even take place in unexpected places!

Smashdown
After battling in this mode, the previously selected fighters will no longer be available, forcing players to have to pick a different fighter for the next round. This mode favours players who are skilled with multiple fighters and encourages others to diversify their rosters.

Training
The improved Training mode in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate includes an exclusive stage that features a grid, used to help measure the distance and trajectory of special moves and fighter knockback.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch worldwide on December 7th.
