Smash Brothers for Nintendo Switch (and others)

Born Better

Ya know, it recently dawned on me that Android 21 originated in video games, and that FighterZ is on Switch. Likely ain't gonna happen, but it's a thought.

Also, it took me almost exactly 24 hours to unlock every single character. As in I was only maybe about 5-10 minutes off. I hope I never have to go through that again.

So far I have 53 characters (excluding Mii Fighters). I only lost to Roy and Bayonetta.

I'm taking my time on this. And I'm doing it in VS matches (because I play horrible with a specific character on Classic mode to unlock others).

I'm really liking Classic Mode, the themes behind each character's really makes them feel less repetitive and it's actually pretty fun to go through each one. Ryu's probably the favorite so far for being a Street Fighter game in Smash form.

Phew. All I got left is Roy. So glad all the rematches just piled up in one go.

If you like that, you're gonna love what they have in World of Light.

I played Spirits for a bit, and meh. Outside of the references, it really is just glorified event matches, which means half the enjoyment of this is entirely depending on your knowledge of all these characters. Even then, if it weren't for the game outright telling you that you're supposed to be fighting *insert character here*, you'd never be able to guess it was a reference to anyone.

How dare they make Arceus a Spirit?

Can't wait to get it, though. :p
Hilarious that even the all mythological mighty creator of the Pokémon universe was ‘killed’ to become a spirit. But still I would rather have it as a Poké Ball Pokémon.

Been playing Smash with my nephews for a few hours now, and it's been a lot of fun.

Creating all these different rule sets makes for super fun 'event' Smashes. I even made a Bomb Smash mode! :D

I’m actually quite disappointed with this installment of Smash. The story is nowhere near the greatness like that of Brawl’s, and after playing for hours to finally unlock my favorite character, Meta Knight, I find that they altered his standard special attack. It works sorta opposite than it did before, repulsing rather than sucking in nearby opponents. My largest complaint is the online play. Unless there’s something I’ve yet to figure out, I can’t play with my desired rules or glory mode as before.

This is easily my biggest complaint, it just flat out doesn't work most of the time. Probably because everyone would rather just play arena. Lag's really bad too.

The story mode is "not as epic" because people broke Sakurai's heart uploading cutscenes to the internet last time. Blame YouTube, not Sakurai.

And Reloaded, what do you mean by arena?

Please be more specific.

I wonder if one of the four left DLC Champs is a Fire Emblem Character to market Fire Emblem Three Houses, kind of like what they did for Fates.

An article I just read stated all 5 DLC characters will be those of a unique and 'uncommon' quality, as far as Smash goes.

Reggie Fils-Aime says in the article that Sakurai wanted characters whose franchises aren't really associated with Nintendo (which heavily implies all-guest DLC). From the way Reggie stated it, though, and given Nintendo did make the list, it seems Nintendo is using the DLC to potentially widen the Switch's game catalogue.

whew, unlocked everyone through classic
except the miis, of course, but i'll just get those through world of light

I've got all kinds of spirits now so WoL will have a bit more variety to it. I've gone down the villager path

You can create your own Miis if you want to. That's what I'll do.

Adventure mode has been a mixed bag for me, with the Spirit battles ranging from hilarious/entertaining to "Why does this exist". Some of the gimmicks are cute, but the ones that decide to just spam a team of level 9 AIs with minimal handicaps at you aren't among my favorites. Fighting giants can also be really frustrating due to how good the new AI is at abusing their superior range, and they often have some effect to make it even rougher like permanent super armor, curry, etc, none of which can be truly countered by any specific spirit effect (There's one that boosts damage against giants, but that's about as good as it gets).

after playing for hours to finally unlock my favorite character, Meta Knight, I find that they altered his standard special attack. It works sorta opposite than it did before, repulsing rather than sucking in nearby opponents.
The new Mach Tornado has given Meta Knight a new option for getting cheesy low percent kill combos due to having a strong single hit of horizontal knockback instead of multiple hits with a weak vertical hit at the end. It's also much better for edgeguarding due to you being able to connect a hit with it immediately then retreat to back to the stage instead of having to wait for the whole thing to hit.
