This is bloody amazing so far. Though the REALLY odd part is that there's only 8 characters available when you start... hoboy it's going to take awhile to unlock everyone, isnt it.
On a side note, apparently Joker from Persona 5 is confirmed as one of the DLC characters (wont be available for a month or two yet). No, seriously.
I just... I... what? How? Why? It makes just as much sense as Cloud Strife getting into the game (and if you havent played Smash in awhile, Cloud was added in later DLC for Smash 4. No, I dont know why. Like everyone else, he's in this one too).
Right now I'm mostly just wanting to unlock the many new characters. Particularly King K.Rool, who was the character I voted for in the Smash Ballot back when that was happening. And I swear he always looked like he had 20 cups of coffee before each of the games he appeared in, way back when. This time he looks even MORE caffeinated.
I also like that they brought back that whole thing with the Amiibos again. That was a very bizarre experimental concept in the previous game, but people ended up really liking it. There's just something extra hilarious about watching your own specific trained Amiibo character beat down one trained by your friend.
I havent tried online play yet. I aint touching that for awhile, probably. So much to learn and also I'd bet their servers are on fire right now...
They've added alot of really interesting mechanics to the game... it seems like they looked carefully at all of the older games, and what people liked and didnt like about them, and then went from there.
Also, Ridley. About bloody time. I'll say though it doesnt get much more bizarre than Ridley (who looks as brutal and monstrous as he ever has) VS Pac-man in an 8-bit level while Solid Snake fires a remote missile at both of them or something.
Some bloody odd additions for characters, too. I mean, someone like Simon Belmont makes sense, he's a warrior by trade, but then there's Isabelle... I just... what. Granted Villager never quite made sense either, but there he is...
