If you showed me this in 1999:



And you told me this was from a Nintendo-exclusive fighting game that had nothing to do with Tekken or Metal Gear Solid...I would have called you crazy. Off your rocker. Completely nuts. And probably to leave me alone, LOL. Yet look where we are now.

What a time to be alive.

@Anand

I endorse this. Bring on a new Bionic Commando! Which...by the way, why hasn't Capcom ported over that HD Bionic Commando from the PS3/360 era to Switch yet?!?

I've maybe played Tekken once or twice ever, so Kazuya isn't all that splashy for me as a Smash invitee. But as always, Sakurai has really smooshed Tekken into this character, and it's always fascinating to see how he does it. All the little sparks when he lands a hit, the lack of hitlag on the opponents getting hit, and of course the oodles and oodles of different attacks (and subtle variations on the same moves) feels so authentic to my admittedly limited exposure to the franchise.

I played the hell out of Tekken 2 in my schooldays. Personally, I would've rather had Gun Jack or Marshall Law, but...

Also, Tekken Tag 2 on Wii U apparently bombed, but it was actually pretty awesome.

WHY, INDEED. Or the Strider reboot. Or Lost Planet or Dead Rising. Or Contra Hardcore. Or so many thingsss...

Played through Kazuya's Story Mode. Pretty cool! He definitely brings that 3D combo fighter flavor to Smash. I love the Shoryuuken move. And, of course, spamming the long-range laser, just like in Tekken. What a wonderful pestering device!

But I feel like I have to study that Sakurai video more to use him properly.

That eye laser has a delay that is throwing me off. Gonna take some time to get used to it. But man Kazuya hits hard! Just his normal attacks and tilts do a ton of damage!

Not sure if he’s a good fit for me or not, but it’s still early. Time will tell.

I really like playing as Kazuya in 1v1. But once you throw in extra characters, I've found him more troublesome than helpful. But he's fun to play with.

The final Smash fighter, Keysword McBigshoes, releases tonight! Who's buying?
Posted: 10/18/21, 19:13:19
Cloud's dorky little brother has joined the fight!

As Sakurai showcased, he's all feathery in his movement and attacks and such, gives him a distinct feel from the many other swordies in Ultimate for sure. It's not for me, but I hope KH fans are pleased.


And that's it! Barring any future balance patches (a handful of low tiers got buffed tonight!), Smash Ultimate is now complete. Hell of a ride.

@nate38

I hope there's one more patch in our future to add in the rest of the Event spirits. I'm still missing 11 of them!

I downloaded Sora tonight, tried him out with some buddies online. Wow he's a lightweight! But I like his tilt-B move, and his various spells are pretty cool. Not sure I'll "main" him, but he was fun to try out.

Side note: I always use his Dream Drop Distance color alt because 3DS fans die hard.

When are we getting the missing items, stages, pokeball summons, and assist trophies back? Everyone is here my ass!

Give me my red shell already!

@pokepal148

Is the Red Shell a..."someone" that would qualify as part of the "everyone" group? Inquiring minds want to know!

@GameDadGrant
Well obviously something is in there to make it home in on characters like that!
Posted: 10/21/21, 06:36:36
I just learned that they put a Doom Slayer Mii Fighter costume in the latest DLC. I know that this is supposed to be then throwing a bone to people like me, but it actually upsets me more. I will never forget that they wasted a character slot with the likes of Bylbip over an iconic character that defined an entire genre and is part of a series that has no single bad mainline entry.

@Hinph
I feel like first-party characters get a little more leeway than third-parties for Smash, since it's focused on Nintendo characters and the barrier of entry is lower. IMO the real wasted slot is Sephiroth, the only character in either Fighter Pass that doesn't represent a new game (much less new series).

But I did avoid FP2 entirely; it's kind of astounding how little I care about any of those characters!

@TriforceBun

Right? I purchased it right away confident that I’d at least be thrilled about a couple characters out of six. I respect the inclusion of some of them even if they’re not my thing, but it’s such a bummer that I didn’t get even one that I wanted… not even one like Ryu Hayabusa who seemed like a shoe in.

I wonder if the Red Koopa is still actually in there...? What's the Smash lore on this?!?

Is it "shoe" in? I thought it was "shoo" in. English is such a strange language.

But yeah, I had high hopes for Hayabusa, but...Sora was the most popular. And he's fine, so whatever. Sorry you (and Matthew!) didn't care for much of Fighter Pack 2. I dunno, Sephiroth was a big deal, and Steve...I mean that's so crazy that it just fits well. Pyra/Mythra ended up being a really cool character (set of characters?). And who saw Kazuya coming? That was pretty great, honestly.

I know everyone has different tastes, but with this kind of variety, I find it difficult to understand how anyone could be *really* disappointed.

The annoying thing about Sora is that Kingdom Hearts has some incredible music and potential stages if they would have just pulled from a game that isn't Kingdom Hearts 1.
