Smash Ultimate Roster finalized! Two new fighters:
Ken(Ryu echo)
Incineroar

And as an early purchase bonus, Piranha Plant will be an available fighter.

The story mode looks so hype, 5 DLC characters confirmed, but no details about them yet, except they come in packs of Character, Stage, Music, and cost 5.99, or you can get the fighter bundle and pay 5 dollars less for all of them.

Theres a new mode called Spirit mode, Trophies are gone. Spirits are kind of like the equipment from the previous game, and you earn them by beating specific challenges where fighters emulate characters from various franchises. You can send them home and create unique ones, which looks cool.

And oh my god, the story. I forgot what it's called, but all we know is that an entity ripped all the fighters(except Kirby because he's too fast) spirits out, as well as characters from various franchises.

I'm still so hyped. I can't even. Literally was crying from my hype factor.

Nintendo Direct dished on Smash Bros. Ultimate. They say they've already announced all included characters, but there will be 5 DLC characters as well AND one preorder DLC Bonus.

That preorder bonus will be the Piranha Plant, who has stretchy Dhalsim-style movies. I may have found my new main...

EDIT: Oh! And since I tuned in a few minutes late, I missed the announcement of Incineroar. (Would have preferred Emboar, personally. But I get it.) And Ken, who- as always- is an echo of Ryu.


EDIT: And I also missed that Lesbunny beat me to the punch on all this.

Piranha Plant is the weirdest addition to the game. Way weirder than Wii Fit Soccer Mom.

I'm gonna start with Isabelle, but there's so many fighters, I'm going to have to try them all to see who I really like.

I'm secretly hoping Double Fine (and what remains of LucasArts) releases Full Throttle on the Nintendo Switch with controls similar to that of The Room (the game, not the Tommy Wiseau flick), i.e. touch-screen controls in handheld mode and Wii-like motion controls in TV mode.

The only thing more fun than playing as the pirahna plant is watching Andre "Black Nerd" laugh about it. I love Andre, he's like joy personified.

So a coupla days ago, Toby Fox released Chapter 1 of a game in an alternate time Undertale. It's called Deltarune (which is an anagram thereof). You can download it here.

EDIT: Oh, by the way, I have finished it.

That song is an absolute banger. I've been listening to it on repeat.
