Super Smash Bros Ultimate Preview - This was easily the most anticipated game of E3, but, does it deliver on its promises? We got to play it at E3 and give our impressions!
Excited to try out Ridley but always gonna have to go with my main, Zero Suit Samus. Interested to see if there are going to be any new modes introduced.
Ridley looks really good and seems to live up to the hype from what I saw on the stream.
Zero Suit Samus was always hard for me to control. Have her amiibo tough which is awesome. Who's your secondary character?
I would probably go Fox or Sonic. Both are really fun. Who’s yours?
@heyhey mine are Toon Link, Link (before nerfed, hopefully he's not in this game), and Zelda. Zelda has become my main though because I've mastered Din's Fire. It's cheap, yeah, but if used correctly it is killer. and her attacks are really powerful. I like Shulk too but he's hard to master.
It looks great but honestly there better be some more new characters. I think this is Smash's swan song honestly. next system will probably port it.
Yeah, I think it will be hard to top this. IMO they should start off the next system with a port of Smash Ultimate, with any and all DLC included. Then later that gen they should put out a new one that reboots the roster and starts it from scratch.
Exactly, Judging by the to disagrees you have it makes no sense to me that nintendo fans don't want a reboot of this franchise. It's almost like they just want more of the same
@paintedgamer1984 - maybe they don't want Smash to launch on the next system and just have a new Smash right away. Doesn't mean that people want more of the same, they just might have been disagreeing with 10th's idea.
Not the last smash...It's too profitable for that, but there will be a smash "reset" after this game on the next Nintendo console. It will launch with about 30 characters all redone from the ground up and some favorites won't be returning right away or maybe until the game after that or ever. This smash is the ultimate culmination of all past smash games.
I got to play as Ridley and it was incredible. What a dream come true. If it's the final smash game I don't care, it seems like it will be the definitive version. And I got the hat! so cool.
Ummm im.more pumoed for 3/4s of the new games
I'm most excited to start with only original characters and have to unlock all the stages and characters. To me, that is my single player experience. It allows me to become more familiar with other characters I may not have tried out and playing them helps me play against them because I understand their move set then. Yoshi's Island from Smash 64 is back to!
This game is really just more of the same like how many damn smash games do you need to not get tired of this franchise. They are milking it at this point just like mario kart. Theres really nowhere to go after this game but to reboot the series completly.
It’s the fifth entry in the franchise, the fans enjoy it, newcomers enjoy it, it moves units by itself... You know you’re doing something right when your fighting game franchise, stablished in like 1999, has far less entries than any of the other big fighting franchises and still manages to outsell and score higher than them.
It is a fighting game for crying out loud. What do you want them to change? Its like asking for Street Fighter or King of Fighter to change into something else. Make no sense at all. And have you even see the E3 Direct? There are many new features coming to Smash Ultimate. And what milked? The last Smash came out 4 years ago. This is not a yearly franchise. Anyway why do you care? Its not like you gonna play it judging on all of your past comments.
There’s been 5 Smash games in total, and the first one released almost 20 years ago. Every game introduces a ton of new characters, stages, items, modes, and even core mechanics. How does that equal milking a franchise and just giving the fans more of the same? I’m genuinely curious.
but bring on God of War, Gran Turismo, Killzone, etc, etc and that's ok?? at least every Mario Kart brings something new to the equation and still feels fresh, and this new Smash has so many new mechanics and modes to boot. You would know this if you actually paid attention and/or played the games.
Come on man, you know that the new God of War did more to reinvigorate the franchise than Mario kart has ever done. And we haven't seen a new Killzone in over 5 years, so why did you even mention that?
@BiggerBoss - but yet the Nintendo franchises come along what.. once ever 4 years or so. I just mean you are talking about milking IPs yet Sony is just as guilty of putting out sequels to popular franchises. Is Nintendo supposed to stop making more games in the series when each entry sells into the 10 millions of units? I never said that God of War didn't change it up, it's a fantastic game (again, I own multiple hardware) and it's worthy of all it's praise. But when we see a Zelda game come along every 5 years, it's hard to say that Nintendo is milking anything in this day and age of annualized games.
