We have less than five months left to wait until the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch, but players looking to get their hands on the title a bit early don't need to wait much longer if they plan on attending the largest fighting game tournament in the world.

The developer and publisher announced today via their Nintendo VS Twitter account that the demo for Smash Ultimate will be playable at 2018 early next month.

A demo for the biggest crossover game ever was previously available to play at E3 where it was officially unveiled — for those that ordered special tickets — as well as CEO last month.

The previous demo versions of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate featured 30 of the game's final, massive 65+ character roster including the long awaited inclusion of Ridley, Splatoon's Inkling and the return of Metal Gear's Solid Snake.

Nintendo's announcement doesn't state whether it will indeed be the same demo from the game's two previous showings or an updated version though rumors circulating state that there are still at least six characters waiting to be revealed, and an event like EVO may be the best place to announce some of them.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is set to launch on December 7th alongside new Amiibo figures. EVO 2018 will be taking place August 3–5 at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can take a look at Nintendo's announcement below.
