I don't "main" anyone, I play as all the characters. Some more than others obviously, but I never stick to one character or two. Never understood how in a literally 72 character roster people would ignore 90% of the fighters just to play as one or two. Unless you play competitively for real life money, what's the point? The whole point of the game is to try out everyone or else why bother to have so many characters to choose from.

So I'm sure people know the game has been datamined, I'm really surprised how much Sakurai left secret and didn't reveal. The World of Light is far bigger and longer than anyone could have realized. And the new bosses all the look amazing, I'm shocked he kept them under wraps. Won't spoil who they are but I'm sure some know (and don't spoil it for people who don't want to know), but there's a lot of great stuff. I'm legit hyped and the single player looks far better than I imagined.

Love a lot of the new alt colors and Mii costumes, Skull Kid in particular has an excellent Mii costume that makes you feel like you're playing as him, since the mask covers the "generic mii face" and the proportions of the mii's are near identical to Skull Kid. Isaac also got a nice Mii outfit too.

The Palutena Guidances also returned with new ones for the newcomers, and surprisingly Snakes Brawl codecs are back but none for any of the newcomers after Brawl, so only 30ish characters on the roster have them since they're the old recordings from 2008.

Overall I'm hyped, I have a few characters I can still hope for DLC that weren't de-confirmed with Assist trophies yet like Dixie, but besides that I am content. The Zelda franchise really got great treatment this time around despite not having a newcomer, and I'll leave it at that. Lastly so much new amazing remixes of music was added, particular many of the DKC2 music tracks. The over 800 song soundtrack is incredible from all the games.

"Main" is basically a synonym for "favourite character to play as". In Melee I mostly played as Fox, Falco, Marth, Roy, Mewtwo and Mario. Captain Falcon occasionally as well. Played the least with Peach, Jigglypuff, Ice Climbers and Pichu.

In Smash 3DS I played mostly as Little Mac, Ryu, Sonic, Ike, Charizard and Fox. Used Captain Olimar and Villager the least.

fastest way to unlock characters

After 10 minutes of playing, whatever match you were in vs will end in A New Foe Appears screen
Defeat them
After you get back to the stage select screen, open up the Switch menu and close Smash Bros. Software
Open the game up again and start a Smash Match
Quickest rules are Stamina Battle - 10HP
After that match, the new foe screen will appear again
Repeat until you unlock everyone

I've never played Persona5 so the Joker announcement got 0 hype from me. If they're all duds for me then it'll be easy to not be tempted to spend money. I just hope we get the missing stages as DLC so this can really be "ultimate".

I've played like maybe an hour or 2 of Ultimate and I can already say I like it more than Smash for Wii U. The joycons are already a better controller than the gamepad or the Wii U Pro controller which I could never use for Smash well. I'm in no rush to unlock all the characters I think that'll be part of the fun so I'm doing it the slow way I guess, every 2 or 3 fights I get a new challenger so it's not like that "slow" way is actually all that slow.

World of Light is a bit boring, worse than subspace since it's forcing you to play in event matches even when you don't want to. I'm already gotten bored and only played for a while, I already had to switch to easy difficulty to get done with it as quick as I can. The spirits leveling up system is just something I don't care to even find out more of, I'd rather they just be random stickers since they're cool. The attention to detail is to be praised but at the end of the day they're just random matches. I'm guessing creating a very short side scrolling level for each of the main characters wouldn't have been much more difficult than the elaborate world of light mode and spirits system they made for this.

I hope I can actually do the world of light "story" mode instead of looking up the FMV on youtube, but we'll see. I beat classic mode with Pikachu and that was a lot cooler, that could be my fav. mode but we'll see. No smash online for me since I'm not paying for the nintendo online yet so whatever.

Thats cheating!!!!!!

Lol I have been doing the spirit quest/campaign and I do agree with other that it is bit hideous at times its something to do and it gives me a chance to practice with different characters.

Joker from Persona 5 announcement was the best character crossover reveal yet. Still got the chills and unbelievable feelings. People are still feeling surreal.







Well done, Nintendo - you made a milestone in history again.

Persona 5 on Switch next?

I've never understood why people record themselves making faces and noises at announcements. I understand even less how it's considered a viable form of entertainment.

Gaming Youtubers and their fanbases confuse me. I guess everyone has their own tastes but most of them just seem hyperactive and annoying to me. Reaction videos especially.

I'm really liking Ultimate so far. The graphics got a decent boost over the Wii U version of 4, the newcomers I've unlocked so far have fun movesets, and the sheer amount of content is amazing. World of Light is pretty fun and I like the changed Classic Mode. Surprised at how many little things got upgrades all around, everyone worried about this just being a Smash 4 port should rest easy.

The faster gameplay is better as well but the CPUs are making me realize I need to up my game. Some of the "Challenger Approaching" CPUs are wiping the floor with me.

Or "unboxing videos."
