So I've been dreading this far before I knew of the smash direct that was slated for today. Ever since the fateful leak, I was shaking with anticipation whether we would have it be confirmed or deconfirmed, and to everyone's dismay, alas it was the latter. So yeah. I have much conflicted feelings about this. Many of which is Grinch shaped, but it is to no surprise that it is indeed another fake. Although, there were a few things that caught me off guard. Piranha plant is in smash. Yeah. Re-read that as many times as you have to. I couldn't make this up if someone payed me. I wouldn't even dare to think of this as a possibility, but no, yeah. He's in alright. It's funny that one of Waluigi's signature moves got in before him. Also rip Isaac fans. Rip Shadow, Shantae, Rex & Pyra, Springman etc. etc. fans. I feel like there were two types of Thanos snaps that happened. One was Sakurai snapping his own characters (well, smash fighters) in the Spirits story/adventure mode, and the other was deconfirming potential newcomers. I mean, why close the gate to Isaac? There's always DLC. Perhaps Sakurai doesn't feel motivated to dedicate more time to characters after the game's initial release but still. Isaac was cut from Smash 4 only to be upgraded to still an assist trophy. Or maybe just graded. Who knows. At least Geno wasn't deconfirmed. That's the moral of the story. At least Geno.
You could tell I was reluctant to do this due to how much time had passed between the direct and now, but I was also isolating the pattern behind the logo that you see at the end of the 'World of Light' trailer. This looks weird on black, almost like a tattoo. But I did make a white version that I'll post soon. No, it won't have the same description as the last white version but I'm considering using that design from now on. Kinda marking a new cycle of DLC if you'd like to think of it like that. Well, I guess I'll see you guys in around 3 months depending on how long it will take to reveal the rest of the newcomers. Perhaps I'll wait a whole year after the DLC characters are all revealed just to finally cap the updates for Smash Ultimate. I will finish this, unlike the predecessor smash updates.
Spirits mode is cool tho.
