super Smash Bros Ultimate

E3 2018 is over and the EFG Staff has gone out of our way to share OUR thoughts. But, we wanted to reach out to some kids and see their thoughts!

 

Evan – 12 years old

I talked about this one on the podcast. I have already started playing Smash Bros to get better for the game before this one releases. I can’t wait. Its Smash Bros. That’s enough for me.

 

Jacob – 9 years old

SMASH!!!! I’m going to destroy with Toon Link again. It’s cool how everyone is in the game that has been the series. I don’t know what the big deal is with Ice Climbers though.

 

Brynne – 8 years old

It didn’t really look that fun. There are lots of characters, You just keep fighting against each other. It doesn’t look as fun as all the other games.

 

Asher – 7 years old (From The Family Gamers!)

I feel like it’s just a million different games mixed up to make one big game and it is really cool and it feels like there are so many characters that are similar it could get frustrating. But it’s cool.

 

Claire – 9 years old (From The Family Gamers!)

I like it because it has so many characters (the ones that were in the old one and the new ones that were on the Switch). And I want to get it.

super Smash Bros Ultimate

Nintendo announced a new Super Smash Brothers game a few months ago, but they didn’t reveal many details. That’s no longer an issue thanks to a 25-minute presentation that was a part of the Nintendo E3 2018 Direct. video. The new Smash Bros. game is called Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and will be released on December 7th, 2018.

The Full Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Reveal Video

The Features

Everyone is Here!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will include every character that has ever been a part of a Smash Bros game. That will even include guest characters like Solid Snake that fans thought were lost to time. I know that my oldest son loves to play as Ryu and Cloud from Smash Bros. Wii U and I had told him not to get his hopes up. I felt the hype explosion from our house all the way in LA.

New Fighters: Inkings and Ridley

The past isn’t the only thing being celebrated. Nintendo is also including two new characters. First, they announced the inklings from Splatoon. This is a relatively complex character that does more damage when standing in ink that they have already laid down on the map. The second character is the long-requested Ridley from Metroid. Ridley is a weird dragon/dinosaur/space pirate (No. None of that is made up.)

Echo Fighters: Daisy and Dark Pit

There are some characters in Smash that are very similar. Rather than create (and balance) entire move-sets for similar characters, Nintendo has implemented what are called  Echo Fighters. They are characters that will have the same moves as another character on the roster, but those moves will behave differently. Two examples are Daisy (who is an echo fighter for Peach) and Dark Pit (an Echo fighter for Pit).

Gamecube Controllers

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be compatible with Gamecube controllers. It will use the same adaptors that were used for Super Smash Bros Wii U as well. This will be a big hit with Super Smash Bros. Melee enthusiasts.

Dozens of Character Changes

They made dozens of character changes to help balance characters and make them more interesting. Gamespot did a great roundup of the changes and listed them here.

Nintendo Logo

Nintendo posted a new Nintendo Direct video today. It was approximately a half hour long and featured games for both the Switch and 3DS. All of the games they discussed are currently planned for a 2018 release (with one exception). Take a look below for all of the big announcements!

The Nintendo Direct Video

The Nintendo 3DS

Wario Ware Gold

I have been wanting a Wario Ware game on the Switch for a while. Unfortunately, I’m not getting one. But, we are getting one for the 3DS. Wario Ware Gold is going to include over 300 mini games which makes it the biggest game in the franchise.

Dillon’s Dead Heat Breakers 

I have no idea what this game is about. It appears to be a sci-fi combat racer with some other combat elements. I like the aesthetic. It feels like a cross between Star Fox and Mad Max. We’ll have to wait and see.

Bowser’s Inside Story

Bowser’s Inside Story is a part of the Mario and Luigi series. It involves a giant Bowser and the Mario brothers adventures inside his body. Its like a cheeky role playing game version of Inner Space. It was a big hit when it released in 2009. I think it is a great time for it to be re-released with a fresh coat of paint. In fact, it will include Bowser Jr.s Story. This will be a separate adventure that will explain what happened in the Koopa Kingdom during the events of the main game.

Detective Pikachu!

Detective Pikachu is nothing new. Its been available in Japan for a while. There is even a movie coming out starring Ryan Reynolds (No. I’m not joking.) The big announcement here is that is is available for digital pre-purchase starting today. The game will be released on March 23rd.

Luigi’s Mansion

Luigi’s Mansion is a well-loved game from the GameCube era. It was one of the first games to feature Luigi as more than just a sidekick. The 3DS already has a sequel to the ghost-dustbusting adventure in Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon, but this is a full on re-make of the original.

The Nintendo Switch

Kirby Star Allies

Kirby Star Allies launches on March 16th, looks gorgeous, and features up to four-player multiplayer action. It was featured in the direct so they could announce Dream Friends; characters and villains from other Kirby games that can accompany you on your quest.

Okami HD

Okami HD is one of the most beautiful games ever made. It was remastered last year and released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, but the Switch was conspicuously left off. It looks like Capcom is fixing that error now. I can’t wait to get my hands on this game this summer.

Sushi Striker: Way of the Sushido!

Sushi Striker looks like a pretty wacky game all things considered. It may be anime as all get out, but it has a certain wholesome fun that I think will fit in well on the Switch.

Mario Tennis Aces

Mario has had a lot of success in sports games in the past. The Mario Tennis line has long been one of my favorites. The Wii U version was disappointing, but Mario Tennis Aces looks like the real deal. I’m concerned that some of the mechanics that Nintendo has piled on might make the game less accessible to new players, but they are including a simple mode that will limit some of the shenanigans.

Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker

YES! Captain Toad was one of my favorite games on the Wii U and I am very glad to see it given a new life on the Switch. It is perfect for the handheld. They even announced a 3DS version as well!

Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy

Crash used to the the Sony Mascot. He was their answer to Mario. Now? He has found his way onto a Nintendo console. Its weird how the world works.

Splatoon 2

Splatoon 2 has been a smash hit on the Switch ever since it launched. It only makes sense that Nintendo would cash in on that success in the form of paid DLC. The Octo Expansion will feature a new single player campaign and players will be able to play as Octolings in multiplayer once they complete it!

Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros. is coming to the Nintendo Switch. This is a very big deal and will likely dominate the conversation between now and E3 where I am certain that they will give more details. The interesting details we can catch from this video are the following:

  1. Inkling boy and Inkling girl
  2. Link is in his Breath of the Wild costume
  3. The title card doesn’t list Bandai Namco as the developer

We won’t know much more until Nintendo decides to tell us. But, I will be eagerly awaiting more news.
