Smash Ultimate Summit is a national Super Smash Bros. Ultimate invitational tournament being held on March 7th-10th, 2019. It will be the first Ultimate Summit and will be similar to the Super Smash Bros. Melee events in the Smash Summit series. Like previous Smash Summits, it will be held at the Summit Gaming House, a private residence house in Los Angeles, California, and will be closed to the general public.
These six players were invited by Beyond The Summit:
Four wild card slots were given to the top non-invited finishers at GENESIS 6 the month before:
- VoiD (who finished 2nd)
- Samsora (who finished 3rd)
- Dabuz (who finished 4th)
- Zackray (who finished 5th and beat Light 3-1 in a tiebreaker match)
One final wild card slot will be given to the top non-invited player at Ultimate Nimbus.

The 20 with the most Twitter nominations will progress to the voting phase. There are a total of 368 players eligible, which are compiled in this pastebin.
- This is the first time Beyond the Summit is holding a Smash tournament outside of Melee, although VGBootCamp held a similar invitational for Smash Wii U in December 2017, called Smash 4 Boot Camp.
- Armada, Leffen, Mew2King, and Mang0 have all competed at Melee Smash Summits, making them the first to compete in Summits for two Smash games.
- While this is Armada, Mew2King, and Mang0's first time playing at a Summit event outside of Melee, Leffen did so already, for Dragon Ball FighterZ at Summit of Power in 2018.
- Mew2King and Mang0 are the only players to attend all Smash Summits, regardless of game, as Leffen was unable to attend the first two Smash Summits due to Visa issues, and Armada retired shortly before Smash Summit 7.
