Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now only six days away from its worldwide release... for those who haven't managed to get their hands on early copies of the game which are currently circulating the web.

To celebrate one of the biggest video game launches of the year, a number of developers and publishers have been posting special countdown artwork representing Smash Ultimate's many first and third-party characters.

The Japanese Twitter accounts for Super Mario Odyssey, Konami, Monster Hunter Capcom, Animal Crossing, Pac-Man, Kirby, Bomberman, Final Fantasy 7, Sega and Xenoblade Chronicles have all posted their own special art or screens of their characters and how many days are left until the massive crossover fighters' release.

Capcom posted some new original artwork of Mario getting ready to uppercut a Rathalos from Monster Hunter while Animal Crossing's town sees off Villager and Isabelle for their journey to Smash Bros.

Even Tetsuya Nomura, best known for his work on the Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts series, reportedly released a piece of Smash art with Cloud, Link and Mario standing with their arms around each other while Kirby rains down as the meteor from Final Fantasy 7.
