Link to the direct:


smash bros 4 ultimate direct only:


We might as well call the direct Smash 4, since it took half the time. Not many new games announced. What do you guys think of the direct?

Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Super Mario Party out this year. Smash Bros Ultimate has ALL the characters from the entire franchise, plus Daisy and Ridley confirmed and out in December. SMP out in October. FE out next Spring. See the direct video for more info:

Surprisingly no MP4, Yoshi, Bayonetta 3. Also 3rd party AAA games were absent other than Dragon Ball Fighter Z. Fortnite and Paladin out today though..
I have to go to work, so maybe when I come back we can make a summary of the games announced too.

Just as a curiosity for smash. Who else are people hoping for as characters? It seems that Waluigi and Bomberman are just assist trophies so it seems silly to request them. With this game being so ambitious I can't imagine there being more than maybe 10 new characters this time.

The only three characters I can really think of to be there are Travis Touchdown (imo his moveset could work out really well for Smash and advertise the newest No More Heroes game), Rayman (since Ubisoft seems to be a lot more "Nintendo friendly" this generation), and Paper Mario (totally different moveset, and if there can be 3 Link's there can be 3 Mario's (not counting Green Mario)). Also maybe one of the Arms characters but tbh I know NOTHING of that game.

Edit: Ok I remember two more, Dixie could be interesting and Karate Joe from Rhythm Heaven (would probably be this game's ROB/Wii Fit Trainer/Duck Hunt, just a really unexpected character).

I'd be shocked if we got anywhere near that many, given the return characters. I certainly hope for a few we haven't seen yet, though - it'd be kinda disappointing if we already knew the entire roster today. 2.5 new characters isn't a dealbreaker, but it'd be unfortunate. Wonder if they're planning for DLC characters though - it seems like an obvious yes, but I could see them considering that too much of a pain and settling for stuff like stages/costumes instead. Plus it looks greedy if you go too far with it.


Travis Touchdown (imo his moveset could work out really well for Smash and advertise the newest No More Heroes game)
I'd be down with this,
and yeah it'd fit their cross-promotion angle. Probably have to tone him down a bit like Snake and Bayonetta, but that just shows it could be done.

Rayman (since Ubisoft seems to be a lot more "Nintendo friendly" this generation)
could see it happening, not really interested

Paper Mario (totally different moveset, and if there can be 3 Link's there can be 3 Mario's (not counting Green Mario)).
Link is setting a bad example tbh, but Paper Mario seems like he should be sufficiently different that I wouldn't hate it

Also maybe one of the Arms characters but tbh I know NOTHING of that game.
I want this if they're willing to pick the right character. People consider Spring Man the obvious choice since he's the male face of the franchise, but I think he'd be a boring choice and I also hate his face. Also if I have to put up with his fucking deflect and comeback abilities in another game I may have an aneurysm.

I'd much rather see Ribbon Girl (female face of the franchise) and her superior air mobility (also she's cuter, the most important reason for picking a character). I'd also be content with Max Brass (reigning champ and ARMS league commissioner), for his goofy buff dad vibe. Even though he'd probably get super armor moves (which I hate). Some of the other characters would be alright as well, though a few I don't think would work. And no Min Min. Not ever. Never.

all that being said, I think the ARMS head dev himself is on the record as thinking it's kind of a young game to be represented in Smash. Which I think is no longer a valid critique, seeing as they decided to add that piece of shit Corrin from a game that WASN'T EVEN FUCKING RELEASED YET. But I won't be too upset if it doesn't get a playable rep (and I'd rather that than get one I dislike).

Edit: Ok I remember two more, Dixie could be interesting and Karate Joe from Rhythm Heaven (would probably be this game's ROB/Wii Fit Trainer/Duck Hunt, just a really unexpected character).
I like them enough to be okay with either, though Joe is a real stretch (lol @ whoever started that rumor last time around)


names you didn't mention that I want, in decreasing order of likelihood: Shantae (hair-whipping, belly dancing, animal transformations, get hype), Edea Lee (let her change jobs to change her specials/moves, or just give her a best-of compilation of things like pirate/ninja/monk/mage/valkyrie skills), Mike Jones (the dark horse of all dark horses, he saved an alien race from extinction with a yo-yo and psychic mind blasts and bolas and shit)

Posted Tuesday by Pirate_Ninja

Admittedly I've played none of those games that you mention but I'm familiar with the characters (except Edea, really).

I could see Sakurai surprising everyone with Mike Jones. He always pulls crazy shit like that.

seeing as they decided to add that piece of shit Corrin from a game that WASN'T EVEN FUCKING RELEASED YET.

Lmao, yeah. It also seems weird to say that the series is too young. I remember finding it weird in 2008 (Brawl) that the newest Nintendo IP (admittedly probably the only new feasible one at the time) was from 2001. Especially when a character is already a fighter it would be less of a stretch than adding someone like Captain Falcon in the game.

Only 3 new confirmed ones. (or 2.5 like PN said)

Posted Tuesday by Fox Forever

2.5 we know of so far (hopefully something more in the almost six months until release), as well as the return of previously-cut characters like Pichu and a bunch of other, lesser fighters.

but I'm familiar with the characters (except Edea, really).

the whole "hasn't had a game in forever" apparently isn't an issue, but I feel like "hasn't had a game release in Japan ever" is a tough one. They don't care if we know the character (release Mother 3 you shitlords), but would it ever go the other way?

can't stop me from wishing for it (and startropics 3, let's go)

saw the direct. 17 minutes of newish stuff. and the rest on smash. what a let down.

Daemon machina looks pretty cool. I might check it out. Its coming this year. Other than that.. Paladins and Fortnite, though a free version of the former won't come out until summer, and there's a founders pack you can get for $30(or $13 if you buy it from eshop mexico if you live in NA).
https://www.youtube.com/user/Nintendo/videos
I'm gonna try and download Fortnite tonight or tommorow. I think I'll give it a go on thursday night or friday if anyone wants to play.
Here's what it look like on Switch:

30fps and the drawing distance took a hit.

I'm really hoping fortnite and Paladins patch gyro down the road.

So in this new Smash Bros game for Switch, there are only 3 new fighters. Daisy, Inkling and Ridley

For now, yeah. We do have 5 veterans back that weren't in smash 4 though(wolf, Ice climbers, pichu, young link, pokemont trainer) But I'm fairly confident we'll get more announced, including newcomers. Doesn't make sense to just announce only one newcomer(inklings). There's at least 66 stages confirmed too.

smash ultimate gameplay from the treehouse:







oh and smash bros invitational tournament:

Damn that snake vs shiek(zero) from 12 minutes and after is intense!

edit: Here's the full footage of the invitational.. About to check out Abadango's Mewtwo here. ._.




Edited Wednesday by ShadowFox08

Having watched the invitational and hearing Armada's thoughts on it after he finished with the tourney, I am optimistic that the fast-pace gameplay fans have wanted for a long time is pretty much back in gear.

I can't believe it.

My best friend literally shouted "YES!" when he saw Snake was making a return.

What an ambitious Smash Bros. game....

I predict upon release Smash Ultimate will have a nice even number of 70 characters. I do believe they will have DLC characters, though.

I'm hoping for Dixie Kong, Krystal, or Banjo-Kazooie. We'll see.

I have a feeling this will be the best official Smash game to date....

And I know I didn't host a tournament for Smash Wii U last year, guys. I've been focusing on my own video game more than ever. I may host again next year after Smash Ultimate releases. We'll see. I've been busy.

Then again, I DID win the last Helius tournament, so...maybe I should let it be. ;)

no worries, I was actively playing at the time so I graciously accepted everyone's forfeiture :J

I've been focusing on my own video game more than ever.
can't wait for you guys to have something ready to share right when I'm in the middle of playing something else, lol

(currently confident that I won't be anywhere near done with Xenoblade when my copy of Octopath Traveler gets here)

Our game's demo should be ready in a few months. Sometime this year for sure, at least.

Really excited for this iteration of Smash, though!
