Remnant is a 2.5D fighting game heavily based upon the Super Smash Bros. series, while using characters and stages from various other video games and media. The game uses the same engine as Super Smash Bros. for the Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, and is set for a Q2 2015 Wii U release.

The game's main theme is an English version of Puella Magi Madoka Magica's theme song, "Connect", done by Miku-tan. An instrumental version plays on the title screen, while the English version plays multiple times throughout Story Mode and the credits sequence. Death Note's main theme, "The World", also plays multiple times through the story, while an instrumental version appears on the menus.

According to the Order of the Partial Macrocosm, Remnant starts the events of the Ravaan timeline through unspecified means. It is followed by Checkmate.


The game plays similar to the Super Smash Bros. series: four fighters clash in a 2.5D environment using various unique special moves, items and avoiding stage hazards. Unlike said series, the game uses a "health bar" system, despite having a damage counter in place: the fighter automatically gets KO'd once reaching 250%. In addition, while knockback and health are treated as one and the same in SSB, with the character's knockback increasing alongside their damage, Remnant has them as completely separate, allowing characters to be incredibly sturdy while near 200%. Despite these changes, the game is still relatively the same, with KO's being awarded should a fighter be knocked past the stage's blast line (i.e. edge of the screen), or, as previously mentioned, after accumulating 250%.

Every character also has a Final Move, often called "Final" or "Finale", amassed by dealing 1000% damage or by attacking - and breaking - the Mystical Eye item that will randomly spawn during a match. Rarely, the character who is currently in last place will spawn with their Final ready after being KO'd.

Story Mode

It has been confirmed that a story mode will appear in some fashion. In it's confirmation, it was revealed to be about "the characters trying to escape the small pocket of reality they have been trapped in by a god-like figure". It has also been revealed that the story will feature anime-esque cutscenes created by Studio Shaft, and that various non-playable characters will also make appearances. It will be released on a separate disc that comes alongside the multiplayer, and can also be sold separately under the title of "Remnants of the Heavens". Jake, the game's director, has said that a final name for the story mode has yet to be decided, but that it will not be Remnants of the Heavens.


There will be a total of 36 playable characters in the game, with 24 being unlockable.

Item Series Effect
Scum Soda Rampage Enlarges the fighter who grabs it to twice their size. Makes them slower, though doubles their attack power.
Blue Shell Super Mario After thrown, it will hone into the fighter who is currently in the lead.
Peashooter Plants vs. Zombies Similar to Super Smash Bros.'s Ray Gun, the Peashooter can fire up to 20 large peas. However, they deal very little damage.
Samurai Sword Nazo no Murasame-jō Can be used as a melee weapon. Up to seven small whirlwinds can be thrown with it, which can knock around opponents.
Crissword The Legend of Zelda Can be used as a weak melee weapon. Is able to shoot up to 20 lasers that do no knockback.
Ender Pearl Minecraft Once thrown, the Ender Pearl will teleport the thrower wherever it had landed. If thrown off the stage, nothing will happen.
Magikarp Pokémon Useless item. Causes flinching and does 1% damage.
Dust RWBY A small, white crystal. Once thrown, it will explode and release a cloud of smoke. The explosion deals a random status effect and high knockback, while the cloud deals no flinching and high damage while standing inside it.
Marshmallow of Toxic Loserdom Total Drama The Marshamllow of Toxic Loserdom deals an accumulating 1% damage while held, and will stick to any fighter it is thrown at.
Metal Box Super Mario Picking the Metal Box up will turn the characters into a metallic (male)/pink gold (female) variation, which makes them heavier but allows them to do more attacks.
Mini-Moon Legend of Zelda Throwing the Mini-Moon will cause it to fly up into the air. Seconds later, its size will be increased a small amount and will fall down onto the stage.
Prince Beautiful Katamari Throwing the Prince will have him roll about on the ground. Items that spawn will stick to him and be rendered unusable, and he will be able to stick to the sides and bottoms of platforms. Items can also be thrown at him to increase his size.



  • Despite the game's many similarities to Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Pit is the only character to appear as playable in both versions. Pit also uses the same moveset in both games, though is slightly faster in Remnant.
    • One can also count Somari, due to his almost identical appearance to Mario. His moveset also combines aspects of both Mario's and Sonic's from their Super Smash Bros. appearances.
    • Additionally, Mr. Wright is the alter ego of Diddy Kong created for the Brawl in the Family comic sub-series "Turnabout Kirby". Diddy Kong is a playable character in both the third and fourth installments of the Super Smash Bros. series, though uses a different moveset based upon the six strip comic series in Remnant.
  • While the game has Wes, the main protagonist of Pokémon Colosseum, on the Character Select screen, he only appears in the background of the battle, with his Umbreon and Espeon being the playable characters in a tag-team style.
