Super Smash Bros. Ultimate already looks promising from a competitive standpoint. While it doesn't look quite as hardcore as Melee (yet), the E3 2018 invitational featured some of the best Smash Bros. players on Earth slugging it out and using many of the tactics we see in current tournament settings for Super Smash Bros. 4 and Melee.

The upcoming Nintendo Switch title had such an impressive showing at E3 this year that it actually has one of Street Fighter 5's best competitors interested in playing the game seriously.

PG|Infiltration recently took to Twitter in order to ask for some advice from the Smash Bros. community. "Please let me know what should i do before play Smash Ultimate, and what i need to do prepare before play the game," Infiltration wrote. "Like Controllers, friends etc."

The pro Street Fighter 5 player notes that he won't be able to play Super Smash Bros. Wii U this year in preparation for Smash Ultimate due to his busy schedule involving the Capcom Pro Tour — Capcom's large-scale tournament circuit for Street Fighter 5. However, once Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is released, Infiltration is planning on training with fellow Korean players.

Infiltration is a household name when it comes to Street Fighter having seen major success in the Street Fighter 4 series as well as titles such as Street Fighter X Tekken. He's also been a big threat in Street Fighter 5, with some of his most recent placings including 1st at EVO Japan 2018, 1st at Final Round 2018, and tied for 5th at CEO 2018.

One thing Infiltration is known for is playing multiple characters and being proficient with them. With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster being over 60 fighters strong, he'll definitely have no shortage to choose from.
