Official Smash Ultimate Discussion

Almost one month has passed since release. In retrospect....

  • This is by far the best Smash ever. Like, I don't even know how they will top this.

  • Pretty freakin' good; I have a few qualms over things like internet play, balancing issues, etc.

  • It's ok, but [insert Smash game here] is better.

  • I'd rather play Parcheesi.

Well, There it is.
Finally the Grinch leak is absolutely ****ing dead. Thanks ****ing god.

Ken and Incineroar's trailer looked absolutely ****ing fantastic and I called it. A double trailer!

Spirit Mode/Story Mode looks absolutely banana. I ****ing absolutely love it. That cutscenes and the music is beautiful.

I feel ****ing sad for Isaac and Shadow who got Assist'd. Skull Kid too. Spring man too.
Rex got Mii'd right as DLC is Announced.

Geno got Sprit'd, alongside Shantae and a DQ slime.


The ****ing Piranhas Plant look absolutely banana, I love it, I was laughing so much!


DLC plan announced with a fighter pass of 5 Characters, stages and music...

Wait... Where is the Square Rep?

Oh.

Oh...

Welp... Guys. Time to buckle up. I'm riding that hype train to the VGA for Sora.
I'm actually so happy it deconfirmed characters hard at least. It makes speculation that much easier and it seems like Sora is contender #1 for DLC. And we'll actually know the day before the game releases if it's true.

My hope is still for Banjo at least for one of the 5. I have a feeling Chorus Kids is probably a spirit character too so yeah.

- Sora
- Banjo
- Capcom character/Dante maybe (I wanna kick the **** out of Bayo so bad with him lol)
- FE Character
- Bamco Character

Someone help me out here, is Spirits and world of light the same thing?
Spirits are the new 'Trophies', more like the stickers in Brawl. World of Light is the adventure mode revolving around how those game characters got turned into spirits/stickers.

I hope they let Sakurai get some sleep, though.

Ahm.. sorry guys but I have the urge to say this... ahm..

HAHAHAHA.. Vergeben was right.. doubter owns him an apology
He should get an apology, but he was NOT right about everything, otherwise we would have gotten Minecraft content and a Square Enix rep. And don't say, "he meant for DLC!" That is not what he said.

Ok. I’ve calmed down a bit. I’m looking on the bright side. Sakurai/Nintendo actually acknowledged Isaac’s and Golden Sun’s existence after 10 years. I’m staying strong for Matthew or Felix DLC. Please Sakurai you can’t tease us like this.

So let me address one thing.

I was linked dozens of times to the two or three artists claiming the leak was too hard to make, every single time I insisted it wasn't. Over and over, my points were ignored and Triple1Dee's post was constantly referenced as "evidence" that the leak was too hard to fake.

Well, it doesn't matter how many people can't make it. All it takes is one person who can. I was and am very confident that I could reproduce that leak over a weekend. Omni straight up said it was like a four hour job for him.

Listen to people who know what they're talking about.
I wanna thank you for your points and work. You and Omni were the reason I stopped believing the Grinch leak and overall I enjoyed the direct more because of it.

Thanks! :)

Geno was found to be a Spirit
Oh, was Bandana Dee seen as a spirit as well? I saw a regular Waddle Dee but not him. Maybe he could be DLC.

Edit: just remembered Sora would be perfect for DLC. Sakurai will probably add another Fire Emblem character as well tbh. But I can definitely see Rayman and Banjo Kazooie making it in as DLC, especially cuz they weren’t shown as spirits and they’re both well known popular third parties.

So tell me: How many of you are actually not gonna buy the game because of this Direct?
I need to gauge whether I was right about the community’s reaction to the game or not.
Obviously, anyone who's not getting the game because of this one Direct is silly, and I don't think such people exist.

I'm definitely not getting the DLC, though. Not having access to the complete roster will pain me deeply, but I must stand by my principles.

DLC is not okay.

If Sakurai wasn't considered a mad man before, he definitely is now.
Youtube Link
Sakurai: I just introduced a potted plant as a playable character in a fighting game... I'd like to commit myself.
Mental Hospital Receptionist: Very well, shall I show you to your room or would you like to be dragged off kicking and screaming?
Sakurai: Ooh, kicking and screaming, please.
*hospital porters come and drag Sakurai away*
Sakurai: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Reasonable Response: "I am going to miss trophies and spirits seem like a poor substitute. The fact that you aren't guaranteed to get your preferred rule set when playing online feels like a step down from Smash 4's For Fun / For Glory split. Joke characters such as Piranha Plant don't appeal to me that much and I still wish we got a character like Geno or Banjo, so that direct was disappointing for me."

Unreasonable Response: "Sakurai hates his fans! Geno was robbed and the game is ruined! Ultimate is the worst thing to ever happen to Nintendo!"

Look, the game is amazing and I'd like to play it of course. But it's not worth giving them so much money when so many things are done so badly. I don't even know how to express this appropiately since english is not my first language: I've played hundreds of hours of every smash game, but I'm never a hardcore fan of anything, even with things I spend a lot of time with, because I find that to be just a way to blind yourself. I cannot applaud the decisions Sakurai and his team made with this smash by giving them money. And this critique is without even considering the characters that got deconfirmed and probably can't be DLC anymore (Geno, Isaac, Shadow and more) or the fact that we only got what, 6 or 7 completely new characters in the main game? in return for some things getting cut and other things getting done badly, the online that doesn't look good... I could go on. The expensive DLC crap and the Piranha Plant is just the straw that broke the camel's back (and yes the character looks fun but literally no one asked for it and there are still a lot of fan favourites that got left out). Also getting the game before that date to get Piranha is more crap.

However, I hope you have a great time with the game, but it's not for me anymore after this.
I totally understand. I have been mad at Sakurai for countless things as well like Bayonetta, Dark Pit, terrible dlc costs and never giving papermario fair representation. I honestly almost abandoned Nintendo as a whole with how they screwed me over and over during the WiiU era.

But I already got a switch and love playing smash with friends so I'll dish out the $100+ for a new controller and the game.

Definitely don't support them like a blind fan when they keep making bad decisions. Totally agree with you.

I really enjoyed the direct actually.

Is there a version of the banner with Piranha Plant on it?
