Today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct (the final before the game releases) ended with the revelation of an exciting new game mode called “World of Light.” Kicked off by an intense cinematic, World of Light sees all the playable fighters (except Kirby) captured by Master Hands, taken to a strange, new land, and transformed into evil versions of themselves.
Looks like Kirby’s got his work cut out for him! The actual gameplay seems to be largely based on traveling around a massive board, battling other characters (with special abilities), and unlocking them as you go. It looks to be an elaborate and fleshed out mode that should keep players entertained for hours. Can you rescue all the other fighters?
