Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Smash Bros. done right, and done bigger than ever before.
This game going to sell like juggernaut that for sure. No doubt about it.
when was the last time Nintendo published game got low scores which has Mario as protagonist? Their frist party is unmatched in terms of quality. I am not sure if Sony's first party is better or Nintendo's...
Both are great at what they release. Quality can’t really be argued but preference can. If you like fun lighthearted family friendly games that focus more on gameplay than story , Nintendo is for you. If you love mature story driven games , PlayStation is for you. Personally I love variety so I get the best games on all platforms. Also exceptions can also be made for 1st party games because Sometimes Nintendo releases story driven games (Xenoblade Chronicles 2) and PlayStation sometimes releases family games like Little Big Planet
@jaymacx - totally agree. Why not enjoy the best of both worlds and own both systems. This way you know you are getting flat out amazing first party content no matter where you look.
It's hard to compare the 2 because Nintendo and Sony make totally different types of games. They contrast well off of each other.
1. Mario isn't Super Smash Bros' protagonist. He's just one of the many characters in there. 2. There are plenty of games with Mario as the main character, or with Mario on its name, with mediocre to outright bad review scores. Having Mario on it guarantees sales, not critical acclaim.
Mario tennis aces got just ok reviews. That was only a few months ago
@ solideagle Very difficult to say which is better. Simple solution, get a Switch and PS4 and enjoy both. They are the perfect companions.
Jay Agreed personal preference
Don't know why you'd compare them. They both make games yes, but they cater to different gamers. Both do what they do well. Nintendo could never do what Sony does, and Sony could never do what Nintendo does. They've both mastered their brands and dominate. Game looks awesome. Wish I could use a Dualshock 4 for this or play it on my PS4.
Red Dead 97 vs Super Smash 93 on metacritic. A current gen game still beat a last gen standard game haha
Nobody's first party is as strong as Nintendo's.....Don't even try to act like Sony's is anywhere as impactful. That doesn't mean Sony's first party is trash....it's not.....it's just nowhere near as iconic. Mario helped save the Video games industry as we know it.....that is hard to compete with.
Nintendo is certainly top-notch in terms of first-party titles; I tend to believe those who disagree haven't played them but want to have an opinion. Super Mario Galaxy is still, in my opinion, one of the greatest games ever made. Sony is also certainly excellent in terms of first-party titles. They have more variety than Nintendo and the narrative piece is much, much stronger. In terms of fun factor though, I prefer Nintendo. There's always something so grand about the journey of Zelda or the extra challenges to Mario games (seriously, Super Mario World 3D's Champion's Road was nuts). People can feel free to disagree with me on that. That aside, Smash is as much a Mario game as it is any other Nintendo IP, if you ask me. I get that the name Super Smash Bros. is a play on Super Mario Brothers, but Mario isn't really the "protagonist" and hasn't been since the original. It's perhaps one of the very few games where people are far more excited about the guest characters and who else is from Nintendo will be added.
Yeah, I could never get into the game but I still got two copies for my sons for Xmas. They love playing Smash and Melee.
Buying that shit. . . Nice one Nintendo. Zero microtransactions. . . .season passes. . . .show em how to do this
Switch cementing its place as a must own console.
For sure. Loving mine so far.
Of course if youre only Into "AdULt GaYuMZ" then you don't want a Switch .You should be mature enough to sit around in your pants all day trolling Nintendo articles XD
I really enjoy my switch too but haven't really played it since the x came out. I can't wait to play some smash tomorrow!
EddieNX, Good grief, someone agreed that Switch is a must-own console. What about this comment really prompted you to talk about "AdULt GaYuMZ"? No one is speaking ill of the Switch on this point. Stop making drama. Take the win that you're apparently accepting on Nintendo's behalf and go about your day.
I'm enjoying all of Nintendo exclusives and this game will definitely be a goty contender
Well, not really. A lot of sites cutoff GOTY at the end of November. Smash isn't eligible a lot of places for this year.
Lol...nice try though.
Sold mine to get my 4th ps4 which was the spiderman themed pro
Yh why have variety when you can have 4 of the same thing? You can't play Smash because you wanted a picture of Spiderman. Awesome!
4th? Did they break or you just wanted one in every room of your house?
The word "Why" is not enough for this...
Guess I'm weird, I've only ever needed one.
Of course you did, we believe you. Did you know, a habitual liar actually believes their own bullshit? No one else does, but they do.
I would have done the same.
im so sorry
4 × ps4 Original launch ps4, day one ps4 pro, 500 million ps4 pro edition, spider man ps4 pro edition
When Nintendo gets online right sure.
Like how the Wii U was... oh wait.
Eddie Personal preference Gaming Time with family and work Budget Etc Many factors for different gamers but end of the day no one can deny that switch is a great console just like ps4 and Xbox one Play whatever you want there is no wrong answer in my opinion when it comes to games or consoles. Not everyone will like the same console or game
Nice. I think we can all agree that this is the most content-packed fighting game ever made. I abselutely can't wait to play this with my friends tomorrow, old and new. We're a quirky bunch but we do have at least one thing in common: we freakin' love super smash.
Game of the year!!!!
I think Red Dead Redemption will win but Super Mash bros is an amazing game
Not a chance.
can't wait for it!!
Ign is biased toward switch ports yet again
This isn't a port. But please continue forming opinions around false facts.
port? Please explain how this is in any way a port? I can't wait to hear the answer here.
Port? This isn't a port and IGN has given good grades to games on all the platforms, so biased? Na.
He’s just a troll. I highly doubt he would respond to any of our replies, and even if he does, it would just be gibberish anyway.
Isn't this a joke from inside the Nintendo community itself? I think it went over a few heads here
Not any joke I've ever heard of. One of the most overused complaints by people that hate Switch is that they only have ports.
It's been an ongoing meme in Nintendo groups I've been part of for about a year now
Port? Waits for you too google.
Stupid Uncharted 4 just a port of Uncharted 3. Despite it's a new engine. New assets. New Game. More content. It's just a port dammit!
Listen, I know you're mad that your parents didn't buy you a Switch for your birthday but christmas is coming up so maybe you will get one then. It's gonna be okay little guy.
Was actually expecting higher
this is one person's opinion. You think we won't see plenty of 10's?
There are actually plenty of 10s. But 9.4 is also a very high score. Right now Nintendo has 3 exclusives games that score 90+ in Metacritic. Bayonetta 3 and Metriod are most likely gonna the the next ones to do that. Great time to own a Switch.
"IGN : 9.4 Too many characters"
Twitter: Not enough characters in this tweet
Solid scores all round. No doubt it's going to give me plenty of hours of fun, and i'm looking forward to the world of light business.
blind fanboyism. this franchise is as stale as it can get.
Do you like any game at all? Debbie Downer at its finest.
I'm sure he does. But he's an obvious troll. He never says anything remotely positive about anything and then never replies to anyone. It's pretty much the textbook definition of troll.
We have had 5 entries in like 20 years, and it's one of the more unique games out there. There's usually dozens of similar shooters every generation getting high scores.
Lmfao you must not be familiar with things Nintendo does this game is going to sell like hot cakes I can guarantee it sells close to 3 million copies in a week.
He said about the game he hasn't played, truthfully he's just mad his parents didn't buy him one and he takes it out on people that own a Nintendo Switch.
I get on paper why this game is soo hyped and popular, but in reality I have a hard time understanding the appeal of a fighting game... No mater what cut sceen happens before, you're just going to land on a 2D map and fight randos over & over and over again... My fighting game love started and ended on the SNES
Because they're games based more on skill & tight mechanics? You can easily simplify any game to make it sound more boring than it really is, that's like saying Rocket Leauge is boring because all you do is drive around and hit the ball every game lol.
Rocket league is fun and simple but it also doesn't have the amount of hype a Smash game has... Not really a great example
You stated you didn't understand why fighting games are popular, Rocket League is still quite big regardless of "hype" because it's easy to learn but difficult to master, just like Smash which has the most content of any figniting game made. Regardless of what you think of the genre it should be pretty straight forward why people like it.
