Only five more days until Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches on Nintendo Switch. Nearly halfway through the week, and already I can feel the tension, so today’s countdown to smash aims to alleviate said tension.

What’s a better way to do so than reviving an old NintyBuzz feature yet again? Yup, NintyBuzz is coming back for another smashing special, showcasing five preview tracks of Ultimate. Check ’em out after the break!

Pikmin Theme ~ Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ~ Nintendo Switch (2018)

Pikmin is a generally relaxing game… when you aren’t racing to your rocket by dark or getting eaten by an Emperor Bulbax. This tune seems to really do the trick to change a relatively calming piece of music to one that you’d prepare to go to war to. Remember, your Pikmin are your slaves, use them to defend yourself!

Battle (Wild Pokémon) ~ Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ~ Nintendo Switch (2018)

You can never say no to a bit of Pokémon battle music. It’s so enthralling for the ears. Will it be super effective? Is it a critical hit? Who knows! This is sure to put a spring in your smash on Pokémon Stadium 2!

Seaskape ~ Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ~ Nintendo Switch (2018)

I just love the grungy tone of this piece, perfect fit for a stage set in the post-apocalypse world run by cephalopods. Forget the turf war, this means an all out brawl, these squid kids are all grown up! I especially love the addition of the Yoshi bongos in the background.

Lost Painting ~ Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ~ Nintendo Switch (2018)

Gotta have a creepy, sorta-cinematic beat in Smash, just wouldn’t be Smash without one. I can imagine this very much suiting Dracula’s Castle. Can’t wait to smash with the undead!

Lifelight ~ Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ~ Nintendo Switch (2018)

Obviously the final track must be the actual theme, and what a theme we have for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! For the first time in the series, the theme song comes packed with lyrics, just emphasises how ultimate Ultimate really is. Light will guide you to the ultimate fight!

All tuckered out from the music? No? Well, only a matter of time until you can start to listen to all 28 hours of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate musical delights.

Join us tomorrow for a slightly less musical continuation of our Countdown to Smash!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
