Get the latest details in the last Super Smash Bros Ultimate direct before the games launch.
I genuinely consider myself to be one of the biggest Nintendo fans and collectors in the world.
From Art Academy to Zelda and everything in between I've tried (and very much liked) the vast majority of consoles and games they've created over the past 30+ years.
But Smash Bros just never really hooked me like it has a good number of the so called Nintendo hardcore.
I've played and own every version since the Nintendo 64 and with each new game I always give it a good go and see if this will finally be the one to win me over but it never actually happens.
I'll be doing the same again with the switch version I've had my pre order in for a very long time and there are a couple highlights for me but it will almost certainly fall into the collection rather than frequently played section of my games.
With all that being said how much did I enjoy this particular direct?
Well actually I liked this one more than any of the other Smash focused events this year (Including the over hyped over saturated E3)
The spirit mode looks like it was made for me and might be the games only way to hold my attention longer term.
I have no real interest in the competitive side of the game or really all that much interest in the casual online fights either but I'll still be sure to give Pac man and Bowser Jr a few rounds each just to see how good or far more likely bad I am after all these years .
I'm also actually happy the vast majority of the fighters has to be unlocked as again this will give me extra reasons to keep playing rather than starting the game playing for a few weeks writing a review and leaving the game in collection obscurity.
As for the 3 new character reveals (no spoilers here) the third one amused me and I'm pretty interested in giving it a go but the other two weren't really my thing.
Finally for the 5 dlc characters yet to be announced who do I really want to see?
My favourite 2 video game characters are already present in Pac Man & Bowser Jr and even most of my favourite franchises are well represented with Ryu, Villager and Link / Zelda.
So who's left for me on a personal point of view?
Banjo and Kazooie (I actually DO think this will happen)
Professor Layton (I'm very surprised this hasn't happened already)
Joanna Dark (I haven't counted so feel free to correct me but I'm sure male characters outweigh the female and Perfect dark is one of the few fps games I truly love But for the record I don't expect this to happen)
Waluigi (Because then people will stop complaining But I don't see it happening)
And the 5th I have absolutely no idea but something totally random that nobody thought of with a really cool Amiibo would be more than fine with me.
But that's enough rambling from me here, I'm not a smash guy so if anyone out there with more interest in the series as a whole would like to share their views (positively or negatively) drop a comment below and we'll be more than happy to share them too.
