Meh. Piranha Plant is certainly a fun surprise, but otherwise, I share sdp's overall disappointment. I'm less salty though as I dropped all expectations after the first direct.

That DLC is freakin' overpriced, though.

I'm tryin'a figure out how people can be disappointed with 74 bloody characters. Outside of randos that nobody cares about, there really aren't too many characters they can pull from.

$6 for a character + stage + music or $25 for a five pack? What game do you play that gives you that for less?

Incineroar is my dream come true. I think he is the best pick of a Generation 7 Pokemon rep, and certainly a way better pick than Decidueye.

Really glad that all the fake leaks can be put to rest, now that we know the whole base roster.

Shredder and Krang combined had the biggest arsenal of any villains in all of the cartoons.

Piranha Plant is such a stupid character and I love him. Totally out of left field.

Spirits are neat I guess? Probably not going to use them much, just like the fighter powerups in Smash 4.

Pretty excited about that story mode, the intro cutscene they showed was great. The whole cast just got snapped.

I'm pretty happy with all of this. The plant is so weird that I'm excited for him. He looks fun.

I got this one and it's worked for me pretty great.

Also, I definitely reccomend getting a pro controller.

I'm a salty grinchbro. I fell for that leak hook line and sinker. It's going to take me awhile to get over this one.

Agreed. I'd rather have a pro controller. Or y'know the joycons might be alright for this. There's some games that control like butt on it but some are decent or better.

As previously mentioned, I'd recommend the amFilm screen protector. Cheap and great quality.

As far as cases go, you have a ton of options all depending on what you want out of it. I use the Hestia Goods case, it's a hard case that has pouches for 20 games plus a large mesh compartment for chargers and other things.

I'd also recommend picking up a microSD card considering the Switch only comes with 32GB. There's a 128GB one on Amazon right now for $23.

I dunno, I don't like to be a controller elitist but I think one of the reasons I didn't play Smash 4 as much was because I didn't love how it played with either the Wii U gamepad or with the Wii U Pro controller.

I hope the joycons are a little better since I really don't need more cables in my house just to play with the GC controller. I wish there was a 1st party wireless GC controller instead.

I'm super excited to see what the DLC is, since we're getting DLC until 2020 I guess we can expect maybe two season passes? I also mentioned this before but I hope this is Sakurai's last Smash, I love him but I want someone else's take and I want Sakurai to work on other franchises whether it's Kid Icarus again or a new IP.

I bought and really liked the Amazon Basics Switch case which besides the case also a nice tempered glass protector, a microfiber screen and some decent grips all for fairly cheap like $20.

Well Smash for one gives me 69 characters more for just $35 more.

People are disappointed because it was an underwhelming final reveal and there are tons of characters to pull from even just from first party alone there are tons of highly requested characters and obscure ones, if we go third party the possibilities are endless. The fact that Smash 4 basically already did the "everyone is here" gimmick, they only missed like 5 characters so that wasn't such a big reveal either

Never played Smash Wii-u (didn't have a wii-u, shocker) so I can't say anything about the controller. As for Brawl...I mean it was the wii-mote and nunchuck, any chance I had to get away from that playstyle I took.

I never had any problem with any controller with the Smash games. It's not that hard to adapt.

Agreed, the only real Nintendo all-stars still missing is Dixie Kong, and if you count Captain Toad separate from the Toads with Peach/Daisy. Besides that every other major Nintendo rep is in the game.

Most other characters people want are either third parties, stuff like Banjo-kazooie owned by Microsoft, and one-off randos like Geno or characters from dead franchises. While it would be nice to have these characters too, they aren't essential.

There really aren't any other major Nintendo reps left, especially now that ARMS also got the assist trophy treatment, and Sakurai passed on the other Xenoblade protagonists.

So essentially, nothing they could have done short of the impossible would have sufficed.

Seems pretty entitled.
