Gamers reflect on the most exciting character reveal trailers from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game approaches its five-year anniversary.

Fans Vote on Favorite Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Trailer

This week marks a significant milestone in the world of video gaming as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate celebrates its fifth year since captivating players worldwide on December 7th. In the years following its release, the game has not only retained its allure but has expanded its universe through a steady supply of both free updates and paid downloadable content through the Fighter Pass Volumes 1 and 2. These updates have been nothing short of a treasure trove, introducing beloved characters from across the video game pantheon.

One of the most memorable aspects of these character updates has been the reveal trailers. Crafted with a blend of CGI magic and creative storytelling, these trailers are more than just announcements—they are momentous events that whip the fan community into a frenzy of anticipation. With undeniable flair, they have turned character reveals into an art form, making the subsequent arrival of each new combatant an occasion to be celebrated.

But amongst the smorgasbord of awe-inspiring trailers, fans now face a tough choice: selecting the best of the best. The game's diverse cast has been introduced through wildly varying scenarios—some packed with high-octane action, others with heartfelt nods to their origins, and a few with clever ruses that caught viewers off-guard. Now, the call has been made to the fans: choose your favorite character reveal trailer and share in the collective reflection on these pinnacle moments.

The roll call of candidates is a testament to the game's incredible breadth. From the initial shock of the Inkling character from Splatoon to the long-awaited inclusion of Ridley from Metroid, each reveal has its own flavor. Perhaps fans would favor the gothic grandeur of Castlevania's Simon & Richter Belmont, the humorous introduction of Donkey Kong's King K. Rool, or the delightful surprise of Isabelle from Animal Crossing joining the fray.

Then there's the likes of the Piranha Plant from the Super Mario series—arguably the most unanticipated entry into the competitive scene—or the double feature of Ken and Incineroar from Street Fighter and Pokémon, a trailer that showcased not one but two iconic fighters. Joker from Persona 5 enchanted audiences with a stylish theft of the spotlight, while Hero from Dragon Quest brought a dash of JRPG magic to the mix.

The tag team of Banjo & Kazooie offered nostalgia and joy in equal measure, while Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury paid homage to the rich history of fighting games. The inclusion of Byleth from Fire Emblem, Min Min from ARMS, and Steve from Minecraft were more than just character additions—they were crossovers that bridged different gaming worlds. The menacing Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII sliced through expectations, as did Xenoblade Chronicles' dynamic duo Pyra & Mythra.

Bringing the high-powered family of Tekken to the platform was Kazuya, and last but not least, Sora from Kingdom Hearts floated in on a dream, fulfilling the wishes of many for a magical conclusion to the ever-growing roster.

Fans have the difficult yet exciting task of casting their votes, with the results poised to stimulate discussion. Will the favorite be the high-flying acrobatics of Ken and Incineroar? The enchanting arrival of Sora? Or perhaps the twist-filled reveal of Banjo & Kazooie?

As votes are cast and opinions shared, it's clear that these trailers are more than just promotional material—they have become part of the game's legacy, each contributing to the joyous universe that is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. These trailers have not only heralded new fighters but have also celebrated the diversity and history of video gaming, providing unforgettable moments that resonate with fans long after the initial buzz.

This celebration of the game's character reveals is not just a reflection of the past but also an acknowledgment of the creativity and passion that has sustained Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a beloved title in the gaming community. The result of this poll will stand as a testament to what gamers cherish most about these character unveilings, and regardless of which trailer comes out on top, the enthusiasm and appreciation shared by the fans are a true victory in celebrating five years of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
