    Continued discussion of all things Nintendo, such as their questionable product naming.

    I'm gonna be honest, for the majority of the content I love Smash for, Sm4sh is already pretty damn near perfect...

    I think my preferred way of doing things here would be for them to just port Sm4sh to Switch wholesale with all the current content on the cart including all of the platform specific stuff like Stages and modes (Smash Run especially) and I'd be happy.

    Then, honestly, Instead of an all-new game, I think they should just work on massive DLC packs for the Switch version. Add 8 New characters and a handful of new stages, maybe some new modes that I can buy for like $20-$30.


    But of course they're not going to do that. A New Smash game is far more hype generating and system-selling than a port, so If we get a Sm4sh port on Switch it'll be a stop-gap with no or very little new content (at most we'd get Ice Climbers and MAYBE Wolf, if anything, as far as new content goes... but I won't hold my breath for either) and then we'll get a true "Sequel" announced down the line.

    Then we can all die happy.


    The reason I'm hesitant about a new Smash is if Sakurai is in charge of it again. He doesn't really hide his distaste for the competitive scene. Sure, I think he's learned after Brawl and Sm4sh ended up better but part of me is afraid he'd might pull another stunt because of it being a new Smash game.

    The scars of tripping will never go away. You have to be a sick person to create that.

    It's not a question of Sakurai having distaste for the competitive scene, but just the whole issue where it's Nintendo. Where other companies get the notion of designing competitive games, Nintendo is too much in the realm of party-casual fun.

    For all intents and purposes, Melee feels like an accident of the time, and I don't think Sakurai knows how to actually repeat that. Certain direction choices from Sm4sh like the Smash Tour icon in the main menu and alternate moves being coupled with game-breaking stat changes AND unlockable by rng are the sort of stupid design things that would never ever favor a competitive scene.
    I'm half convinced that the reason Sm4sh is relatively more balanced than Brawl is Bandai Namco's assistance, and even then you have the bullshit of third party DLC characters being overpowered, probably intentionally.

    And that's the bit with a smash sequel... whover directs it (with advise from Sakurai) will have long and deep thinking sessions on how to best grow the franchise without making it stale. And whatever they do, I'm ready to bet it's more likely to be in the favor of party fun than in the favor of competitive players.

    Taking into account however that they're NOT going to go the "Port the one we have an release expansions for it" route I kinda wish they would, and we are DEFINITELY getting a Sequel, here are some things I'd want to be different from a sequel to justify it being a Sequel:

    1: More robust single-player. Bring back fun stuff like Break the Targets. Also, give us another Sub Space Emissary. I'm not too bothered by Sm4sh's lack of the SSE, but it was pretty fun and silly and a lot of people loved it.

    2: Whatever the more robust single-player mode is, make at least most of it co-op. To me, Smash is a Multiplayer experience first, so being able to do something fun like SSE with a friend would be great.

    3: Omega stages were fine I guess, but give us the option to keep stage geometry mostly intact but to turn off the hazards. Sm4sh Wii U actually had this at launch. If you picked 8-player Sm4sh it turned off the stage hazards no matter how many players you actually had... they eventually patched it out so that now it detects if you actually have more than 4 players and only disables them if you do... give us an ACTUAL option for this please. I hate how the option we DID get is basically "Final Destination with a new Paint Job"

    4: Stop the stupid forced difficulty lowering please. If I pick Difficulty 9 and lose, don't automatically drop me to 8 unless I restart. I picked 9, I want to play 9. This BS makes practicing the actually hard stuff (IE: Master Fortress) A slog because ONE Slip up and BAM: gotta play through the entire thing again because the difficulty dropped. Had this problem with Kid Icarus Uprising too. Must be a Sakurai thing

    5: More Alternate Costumes. Alt colors are fine, but we got some straight up alts here. Alph, Bathing Suit Samus, Original Wario, Captain Amario, Gender variant Robin, Villager, and WFT? More of that please. Like, all over the place.

    Jokes aside

    I would personally like to see a fresh team do Smash (or a game of the same premise)

    I'm very much a Smash party player. Brawl, for all of its flaws, holds a special place in my heart because of all the hilarity that came from playing it with friends.

    Now that I don't have friends don't have as much time to play socially anymore, I guess a Switch Smash would at least be cosmetically interesting but wouldn't make me want to get a Switch. I like Smash 4 fine, but like others here haven't played it as much because I haven't been able to do multiplayer.

    As for single-player options, I thought Subspace Emissary was fun but only in an OK way. Never really got much of a kick from any Smash single player mode so I've never been focused on that too much.

    So if anyone makes a Smash for Switch, I just hope the character reveal trailers are as awesome as Smash 4's were.

    I'm so down with everything Demon Rin suggested. I loved the hell out of Smash Run and would love an expanded version of it with aome added options.I kinda miss the trophy shooting minigame grom Brawl, but Sm4sh's box breaker minigame was fun too.

    I should find what me at this time and age can find hapiness. I was happy when I played smash64 back in college with my friends. Melee, Brawl, and Sm4sh brought small dosses of that.

    That magic won't revive without effort and coordination. More than keeping the online mode, or all of the added characters, or hd, what I want is a group to play with, regulary and effortlessly.

    <shutting naive old man mode off>

    So, what about combining the 1player mode of melee, the subspace emisary from brawl, and smash run/master fortress?

    Overarching plot, happening in these mid size "floating island style" levels, themed after nintendo franchises (or concepts, like throw the retro worlds together), keeping the franchise flavor with enemies, stages and hazzards, but navigating it smash style, spicing it up with fighters and bosses of note.

    Like let's say Megaman, theme the stage of either Wily's castle or what a theorical "Megaman" stage would look like, let's continue with the castle as it's easier, like there are 8 megamans, each locked to only one B move, go find them and beat them.

    The NG+ update that was supposed to be released for Xenoblade 2 today is delayed to March 2nd.

    Should be upset but considering how it gives me a lot of time to do things in this game to prepare as well as play other games I've yet to get to, I'm personally fine with it.

    I just think it's really lame of them to delay it like 4 hours before it was supposed to go live. I won't be playing it anyway, though. When I have a 100% save with over 200 hours I'm not about to overwrite it with NG+ dickery. Once save per profile in an RPG with NG+ in 2018.

    Also Ni no Kuni 2 comes out in March so that's going to be my RPG fix.

    I hope you're right here. I'm very scared that if they do a Smash 4 port that it will be the only Smash Bros release for the Switch. This is very much why I don't want to see a port at all.

    So my brother bought a SNES mini, or whatever the official name is. It's pretty cool!
    I do own about half of the games on other formats, including my mother's actual SNES, but it's still nice to have them all together, and with 2-player fun at that. We were having a fun time starting and riffing Final Fantasy 3/6.

    If we didn't get it for the early direct, maybe the pokemon one (check for Robby's analysis on pokemon release schedules) as they don't adhere to other calendars, but there is no way that the fire emblem isn't the big gun of the year. That means E3.
