Everyone is back! Ridley showed up too!

This looks so good tbh based on the presentation and it's coming out this year. I used to play the original Super Smash Brothers during childhood and this franchise is still one of my favorites. December is going to be epic.

No, It uses some previous assets but the style and much of the roster has received updates to various degrees. In addition counting returning and new characters there are 8/9 (depending how you count Daisy) new fighters over and beyond the previous game including all of it's DLC. It's far too extensive an update to be considered a port.

How is it a port if all the characters from previews games are gonna be back and they are adding new stuff? This is more like a MK armaggedon like game.

It has everything you could want in a smash game.

It's a port plus additions. So not a new Smash game but not a straight port either. Somewhere in the middle.

I disagree with this. It's changing a lot of core gameplay mechanics, adding a LOT of characters, new maps, changing a lot of characters from previous games a lot. It's got more changes than CoD sequels. It's a new game.

The Mortal Kombat Trilogy principle seems to be in full force here. Is it not usually the case that adding more fighters upsets the otherwise balanced interactions between existing ones?

How is this anything like a port? Just because it has a similar art style to Smash 4?

Every smash game is a combo of stuff from previous games + gameplay tweaks and new additions, and this new Smash has all those characteristics. The only thing that it hasn't introduced yet is the new modes it's going to come with, which is another addition that separates the different games in the series. I'm guessing that'll be touched on in a later direct.

So Nintendo basically has made Super Smash Bros. '98: Dream Match Never Ends, and I am perfectly fine with that. You can tell that Sakurai simply decided to give fans (almost) everything they possibly wanted, right down to Ridley being made playable, & then demanded that no one ever "ask [him] for anything ever again". I'm definitely hyped for this game even more now, though it annoys me that Bomberman only gets a nods as an assist trophy. I mean, Snake returning is awesome & all, but if Capcom can get two slots (Mega Man & Ryu), then why can't Konami get both Snake & Bomberman as playable characters?

^ You know he never actually said "ask [him] for anything ever again" right?

They said there are tens of thousands of changes from the last one.

My hype is through the roof! Very Happy I’m still surprised that Pichu was ever a character in Smash Bros. to begin with, though.

It is an enhanced port of Smash 4, let me explain why:
    • New gameplay mechanics
    • Huge move changes and balancing for old characters
    • New Characters
    • New Stages
    • Different Logo

spoiler[I have just described the changes from Street Fighter IV to Ultra Street Fighter IV. This is an Ultra version of Smash 4, plain and simple.]

Now this is the most ambitious crossover event ever, so much for Infinity War!
