I triggered a challenger after fighting one of the spectacle event spirit battles, and of course it automatically jumped to Bayonetta. Itís the little touches.

Those types of unlocks just happen in a pre-set order. So, in this case, the little touch was arbitrarily placing Bayonetta as playtime automatic unlock challenger #47 out of 63.

I can't stand the gun/shield part of it but the Spirit Board is growing on me because the fights themselves are more in-jokes and references that aren't World of Light.

The single player content in Ultimate is Very Good

I beat several challengers in a row before the patch, (thank u cloud for walking into captain falconís knee; i think we both know i wasnít planning that) but now that it is easier, for babies like me, Iím getting my ass kicked even more frequently. Lifeís a rich tapestry.

Where is the gym in the World of Light?

I could tell Bayonetta was clapping sarcastically even before I looked at the chart. I love it.

So You Would Like An Angry Plant Man: A Public Service Announcement

Pretty sure everyone reading this already knows this, but I thought it best to be safe so that no one has cause to be salty later. I'm pretty sure a digital purchase of the game automates this entire process, but digitally purchasing Smash requires more storage than several Google data centres, so if you're like me and purchased a physical copy, here is the process to unlock P. Irahn. A. Plantman:

On you Switch menu, highlight the game and then hit + and go through the process to register your copy. This will also grant you Gold points!

A few days later, you should receive an e-mail from Nintendo with the subject line "Thanks for your purchase of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game" that contains your plant ownership download code. Plug this into the eShop and you should be prepared to receive your green pipe baby promptly when it unlocks next year.

Per Smashboards, it doesn't look like any buffs or nerfs actually happened. The only changes anyone has found so far are bugfixes and graphical fixes. So that's good.

I haven't played this yet, but I can already tell its biggest flaw is putting Sheik ahead of Zelda on the character select screen. That's okay though, no game is perfect.

No, Zelda Link and Gannondorf all put their hands into the air with their respective TriForces during Link's intro, before we see Sheik.

I love the crowd response to Ice Climbers showing up.

(ABSOLUTELY NO APPLAUSE OR AUDIBLE REACTION WHATSOEVER FROM THE AUDIENCE)
a moment passes, screen moves on to Captain Falcon
exactly one guy: "...Ice Climbers?"
"Yeah-huh!"

What is even the difference between Simon and Richter? For that matter, Chrom seems worse than Roy in every way that matters?

Oh wow, thank you for linking that video, I've never seen it before!

Re: Simon/Richter - no difference I don't think besides Simon's Holy Water being fire-based and Richter's not being elemental. That may have been patched out too.

Chrom's B-up does more damage and his Final Smash has less start-up time, making it harder to dodge. Furthermore, Roy's sword has a sweetspot and sourspot, meaning it does more damage at the hilt of the sword and less at the tip (Marth is the opposite). Chrom's sword, like Lucina and Ike, does equal damage regardless of where it hits.

From what I've read, Simon and Richter are pretty much identical, it's just a cosmetic choice.

I honestly find Chrom better than Roy, you can hit combos more consistently with the lack of a sweet spot and his forward air is an amazing spacing tool. Roy has to close the distance to work, but Chrom can play wherever he pleases.

Chrom not having to get right up close seems like kind of an advantage over Roy, which is probably why his recovery is worse.

It may just be me but I swear Richter's dair is faster than Simon's. It's the only real difference I've noticed beyond Holy Water coloring.
