Never got around to playing this but always thought it looked great. Definitely be picking the Definitive Edition up!
I haven't played this before, so I'm looking forward to trying out the Switch version! I played Super Smash Land when that was originally released, and by my understanding, this is made by the same person who made that.
lol just when I started trying out the Steam version of Rivals for the first time we finally get the release date for the switch version. I'm still hyped that it's finally coming out though. I'm new to the game and the community but I hope it keeps growing thanks the Switch port.
That's awesome, Kinda sad that there will be no workshop for the Switch version, But hey it looks so dang Fun so I'll let it slide.
