Brand new models for many of the cast

The original Super Smash Bros. launched 19-years ago which has now culminated after four titles in the series in the creation of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that looks to combine that nearly two-decades of history into a single, massive video game.

Previously, we took a look at how the character models for the original cast of 12 for Super Smash Bros. have evolved over every iteration, but today it's time to delve even deeper to see how the rest of the cast has changed... and how some of them haven't.

Reddit user EasyEvil recently compiled a gallery of comparisons between the character models for every returning fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (sorry Ridley and Inkling) to their previous incarnation whether that be Smash 4, Brawl or even Melee with descriptions as to what they have noticed to have changed.

Ryu along with a decent number of the roster appear to have brand new models in Smash Ultimate making them largely more expressive with added details from their previous counterparts. The Street Fighter poster boy appears to be more in line with his Street Fighter 5 appearance with a change in hair style plus a more intense expression among other changes.

Other characters, like Wario, Ness, Cloud and Bayonetta, appear to be largely identical to their Smash 4 versions with the only differences seeming to come from the universal changes to the games lighting, expressions and shadows.

We've collected a handful of the more interesting and most changed models from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the gallery below plus some examples of his descriptions and the full list of comparisons can be found after the jump with some possible mild NSFW language.
