Smash Bros Ultimate - Drowned in Pound Tonight at 8pm (30th January)


Nintendo chose the DLC fighters, so it seems likely they’ll use the slots to do some promotion…

Gen 8 Pokémon
Protagonist from Shin Megami Tensei V
New character from Metroid Prime 4
Someone from Arms
A Labo character who can turn into a robot, drone, piano etc
Shrek etc


Dunno, the last bunch included Ryu, Cloud, etc.

Could be Leon from Resident Evil, Crash Bandicoot, etc.


Master Chief


Manny from Grim Fandango


Minecraft Steve would be a smart choice for a Microsoft character.

Well done Nintendo!


don’t really get the need for the gamecube controller beyond nostalgia. It’s a bad controller


Always thought it was a grand controller but it’s not a deal breaker for me. Some smash hardcore insist on it though :man_shrugging:

Yeah it’s only an issue for hardcore fans who don’t want to lose the edge that reflex gives them


Like profk!
For me having a wired controller to the Switch is so backwards.
Really looking forward to the game in any case.


Bloody love the Gamecube controller tbh


Ah man this is blocked in work. Is it good or bad?


Classic Mode has sidescrolling levels and boss fights.
Oh My:


Oh man this looks good. Already so much more exciting than Smash on the wiiu


Gameexplain have a video showing the first ten minutes of World Of Light story mode too but I want to go into that 100% fresh to avoid spoilers and surprises. It’ll probably be the first part of it I get stuck into.
So excited for this.


This sounds really good. I put 10 hours into Subspace Emissary and it was the best thing about Smash on Wii / Wii U. If this mode is as good as this sounds, I may dip in and buy my third Smash game, only to then denounce it as ‘not my cup of tea’ a month later.
