Well, I got roped into entering a mostly students but they wanted me to be in it Smash Bros competition after school today. Apparently the kid I got paired up against is really good and everyone is looking forward to him smacking me down.
First match was pretty close, in fact I was winning with Young Link to Lucina had about 70% to his 90%, but he got a good sideways hit on me and I couldn't get back to the course.
I probably should have stuck with Young Link but honestly I kind of didn't care at that point so I switched to Robin and got killed by his Lucina. Robin is not that good when someone is aggressively up close.
No wonder I can't get any of my characters up to elite, I SUCK.
To be fair most of the kids who signed up for this tourney are the school's serious Smash players. When I just play against random students I usually do pretty well.
So there's a new TV spot for Smash that seems to have accidentally(?) leaked an upcoming feature, presumably coming in the 3.0 patch that should arrive sometime this month along with Joker. It's not showcased in detail in the ad, but its existence is confirmed when the game's menu is shown briefly at the beginning.
It's nothing mind-blowing, but I guess I'll spoiler-tag it anyway: Stage Builder is going to return!
I don't buy that this is a accident, it seems more like a Mario Odyssey style "look at this! but not for too long!!" tease. The shot is framed perfectly to show this off in a way that makes people feel smart for noticing it but is totally obvious once you see it.
We have to be getting a Nintendo Direct on Thursday.
Warmed my heart to see the stage turn yellow when the Persona 4 music kicked in. That yellow's my fave. I'm not sure this stage will be easy to look at while you're fighting on it, but it sure is stylish.
Stage builder looks interesting. Definitely the best one yet.
Video editing... I mean, video editing is cool but why not just have a video editor in the Switch hardware itself? And you can only share Smash videos in Smash World? I can't just send one to Twitter or something? Weird.
