Those are sweet! Were they originally shots of a Figma Samus?
Thank you!! Yes, I have a figma Samus and took photos of it around my house, and then did some heavy digital editing and enhancements to them to make them Metroid-y, haha. Definitely among the cooler mixed media projects I've done.

Here's my reaction to the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation!

For this week, I talk about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and its impact now that the DLC is all known, look over the Splatoon 3 footage from the Direct, and show off the Metroid Dread Special Edition and amiibo along with Limited Run and Natsume's Shadow of the Ninja rerelease!

Now that the DLC is done, how did Smash Ultimate stack up on diversity? I take a look:


One possible tiny nitpick, though I wouldn't be surprised if you've already looked into it more deeply than I have - I thought Kirby was one of those cases where US manuals have long used male pronouns for convenience, but no gender is generally given or implied in the Japanese text. I generally think of Kirby as genderless/genderfluid, especially given the whole absorb/merge with anyone thing.

Kirby is a bit tricky, but I'm going off of NA localization here where Kirby is referred to as male. However, as you note, Kirby is cited as gender neutral in Japan, so I'm going to add a little asterisk with a note about this. Thanks for looking and offering a great insight!
