Even though this Direct was entirely Smash Bros focused, we wouldn't get that much information, right? Right?


For almost half an hour long we've got loads and loads of information that took me almost a day to fully process.

I'll give you a run down what really stood out to me, but it would be best if you watch the direct yourselves for those who hadn't watched it yet…

Alright for those who decided not to watch the direct in full and just want brief info we are going into spoiler territory here

Simon Belmont: Lashes Out!…

Konami's 2nd rep in Smash, the notorious vampire hunter Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series joins the Smash roster. Both his looks and weapons are completely based on his original debut on the Famicom Disk System and the NES

But Simon did not come alone.
His descendant Richter Belmont: Crosses Over! As Simon's Echo Fighter…
With Richter's confirmation as a fighter, this now opens the doors to 3rd Party Characters having Echo Fighters as well. So keep an eye out fans of Shadow the Hedgehog

And on the topic of Echo Fighters, Chrom from Fire Emblem:Awakening and Dark Samus from the Metroid:Prime series get their chance on being Echo's of Roy and Samus……

And last but not least, King K Rool. Donkey Kong's original and iconic villain Comes Aboard the Smash Roster as a new fighter as well…

These character reveals do indeed show that Sakurai and the developers are definitely trying to appeal retro gamers, 3rd party fans, hearing the requests of popular characters with Echo Fighters as bonus prizes

Now with the new fighters out of the way let's look at the other features Super Smash Bros Ultimate

The total number of stages in Ultimate is 103! All visually upgraded to look glorious, while stages from Smash 64 will still maintain their visuals for nostalgia. Also Stages with Stage Hazards are now able to be Switched off. No more problems from Yellow Devil, Metal Face, Flying Men or an other hazards that made your fights more chaotic then it already is. Also there is a new mechanic regarding to stages. You able to decided to change into other stages during the fight with the Stage Morph option. Want to go from Pokémon Stadium to the Mario Kart Stage or Skyloft to Flatzone? Now you can! try and throw who ever your challenging choosing stages you know to your advantage

The music count on Ultimate. Their is roughly 900 tracks! Always been a fan of music from the video games you can create your own playlist and also treating your Switch like an iPod in Handheld Mode and we can listen to music throughout the series the Smash Fighters come from and listen to it on the go

There is a selectable Smash Fight called the Final Smash Meter. As you fight you can fill up a gauge as the character you are playing as and when it's filled up you can do a weaker version of their Final Smash. My my looks like Sakurai or someone on the developing team has played PlayStation All-Stars, although as I said in Final Smash Meter it's a weaker version of their Final Smash, you unfortunately can fill up the gauge 2 or 3 more times to obtain a different Final Smash

There's a mode called Squad Strike where you can fight your opponent as different characters from the Fighter Roster in match. It's kind of like Subspace Emissary, choose the fighters you want to be, the moment one fighter is K.O. you play as the 2nd fighter you have chosen before resuming where you left off

There's a mode called Smash Down. After choosing a set of fighters in your first match, E.g. Mario, Link, Kirby and Pikachu you can't use them again afterwards until you are done playing this mode against your opponent. Basically in this mod, your mains almost mean nothing, you have to be roughly good in playing ALL the characters. You need to choose wisely and also hope your opponents don't choose the fighters you are good at and you can use them in a later match

And there's a new mode in the menu they can't show us yet. What do you think it is Adventure Mode, a new Subspace or something new entirely? What do you think?

Well that's all the staff that interest me. If you want know more than I defiantly recommend watching the direct. Sakurai all the developing teams have been working non-stop to give us all these new features and characters. So please I beg of you don't send hate mail, tweets or posts just because a certain character you love didn't make it as a playable character. With all the work they are doing I feel like they are spoiling even though I feel like we don't deserve it because of a few rotten-eggs that have to try and ruin it for the rest of us.

What were your favourite parts on the direct? And what do you hope to be revealed in the future?
Yep it's been confirmed…

Time to speculate, look out for recent leaks and praying to Sakurai for your favourite characters to make it into Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Who would you like to join the fray or who do you think it might be
If you've been living under a rock for the last 12 hours E3 revealed Smash for Switch, is called Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
(Sorry for posting this late, but I unfortunately live in Australia so the Nintendo Direct for me was on 2am in the freaking morning so after staying up and watching the direct I went straight to bed)

NOT only all the fighters from Super Smash Bros WiiU/3DS are back, EVERY RETIRED SMASH VETERAN IS COMING BACK FOR THE ULTIAMTE SMASH! Young Link, Pichu, Ice Climbers, Wolf, and Snake ALL RETURN! (And with updated new looks)

Pokémon Trainer comes back as well with Squirtle and Ivysaur. And Charizard returns back to his Trainer's side and go back to Switching between the 3 Pokémon during the fight.

And not only every fighter comes back. ALL stages throughout the Smash series will be in Super Smash Bros Ultimate

New battle techniques like, press and hold the button for rapid strikes, Smash attack to cancel your dash, Ladder attacks (attack people while climbing on a ladder),  Wave-Dashing or as it's officially called "Directional Dodge" and Sakurai made sure if you spam it too much the more vulnerable you will be, Perfect Shield to block and stop opponents attack completely and attack them while they've stopped (but you need to time it correctly), Short Hop Attacks (input your control correctly you can attack while jumping without using your Up-B)

Playing 1-on-1 and more than 2 fighters matches will be different as well. Playing 1-on-1 fights your attacks will be stronger, but this applies to both you and your singular opponent

And now along with Inkling who will be joining the Smash roster. Luigi's crush and Peach's bestie, Princess Daisy will join the Smash fray and she will be the Echo Fighter of Peach (Echo Fighter is now the official term of "clone" characters)
And lastly
Samus's arch-rival and the iconic villain of the Metroid series, makes it in Smash, Big Time!!! And his playstyle is very cruel and more savage compared to the other villains already in Smash Ultimate

Sakurai and his development team worked really, really, REALLY hard on this. And we should appreciate their hard work

If you haven't seen it yet here's the link to it…

(There's still some things I need to do before I reopen requests. So please I beg of you, please be patient with me)

With a over used pun being used now in the Smash community. This is indeed the ULTIMATE Smash
I know I'm a little late to the party

But YES!!! Super Smash Bros is indeed coming to the Switch. THIS YEAR!!!

And not only that, but it looks like the Inklings will be joining in fray the making a mess of things. Ha

Here's the trailer…

Now I am planning to do some photo-manipulation of Smash for Switch similar to this…

I'm not planning to take any requests FOR NOW. My work life is kind of hectic right now and I want to the characters I would like to do first. So after I do the characters I want to do and if I'm feeling bored and have any free time from work afterwards, I might take some requests.

And also I will NOT be going back to fan-made character entries like I did for SSB4…
Manly I want to see if newcomers standing under the burning Smash Symbol will be the new "thing" for new fighters. If they show Inkling having an entry just like Villager-Comes to Town, Mega Man-Joins the Battle, Wii Fit Trainer-Weighs In, etc then I'll consider going back to character entry requests

And now for the other half of this fandom. PlayStation All-Stars fandom.

I know things are going to be a little more difficult now with a new Smash. And PlayStation All-Stars is unfortunately being forgotten over time, with no sequel coming out any time soon. And with my life being overloaded with work.

I'll try to keep this half alive by submitting PlayStation All-Stars artworks and also keeping track of their games.

But I will try my best to keep PlayStation All-Stars have a presence in this club
