Oh and just in case anyone was wondering who the mystery monster was on the castlevania stage.

I always thought the adventure mode in melee was far better. Subspace was just a less focused version of the great cave offensive from kirby super star and I never went back to it after completion.

Secret mode is surely going to be a Stage Creator?

I did think as I was watching that the announcement of a stage on which Rathalos is a boss might imply that a 'Monster Hunter' character could still be waiting to be announced if there's a specific stage from the Monster Hunter series.

Also RIP Shovel Knight's character prospects.

That will be under Games & More I imagine.

The secret mode will be a new single player mode I think.

For sure, it wasn’t perfect. Nintendo/HAL/whoever seemed to be under the mistaken belief that they could design new enemies that would be as appealing as Nintendo’s classics. And some of the platform level designs were outright guff. Still, it had potential: the bosses were good, the cut-scenes were often funny, crossovers are always pretty cool, and... well, it was a substantial campaign mode in a fighter!

I think there’s room to hope that an SSBU version would be better. Smash Run, which used mostly classic enemies, shows that they’ve learned from their mistakes on that front. I don’t think there’ll be one though: too many characters to work in!

Didn't watch all the direct as I was at work and now that I'm home I can't be arsed sitting through a reel of assist trophy/items - they're neat an' all but I'm fine with them being a surprise I encounter in-game.

I approve of pretty much all the character announcements. I've always called for a Castlevania rep and said Simon (or Alucard) would make the most sense. The new game modes sound great.

As for talk of single-player modes, I loved Subspace the first time around. As is often said, the bosses/cutscenes are the highlights. It's a good showcase of what's in the game. It's clearly flawed and was not too appealing on re-playthroughs, but yeah, it had its moments and was refreshing. Co-op is still a good laugh though.

Melee's Adventure mode is more replayable, but it has the benefit of being a lot shorter. Still, it's tight, varied and can be approached in a lot of different ways thanks to the game's mechanics. Edit: Not that it doesn't have its own flaws of course - a mode like it these days should be modernised a bit.

I really hope that there is an equivalent of the SSE as I enjoyed it in Brawl and I'd love to see all of the characters introduced into a single story with the level of hype during Infinity War as it brought together the MCU.

This is just looking like an amazing experience :wub:

I hope they end up including every assist trophy as well, even if the add some as DLC after launch

We honestly don't deserve Sakurai. Was also at work but managed to keep up with the direct from live tweets. Just seeing all the extra stuff being added almost made me tear up lol. This game is going to be a beast and we're not even done seeing everything yet.

Now that I've had time to think about the new characters:
Simon/Richter - I think these will be very strong characters. Longest reach of any character on their normals, whip looks like it does more damage at the end, can whip in 8 directions, can use whip to tether themselves to ledge. Side special projectile that comes back, holy water can ledge trap if it works anything like Robin's arcfire.
Chrom - A Roy echo but if he is like Lucina then his sword will do equal damage regardless of range which is by all means an improvement over Roy who has no effective range. He looks solid enough but he has the same Up B as Ike and that is a terrible move that will make him very, very easy to kill at the ledge.
Dark Samus - Samus is not very good, Dark Samus will do little to change that. Only notable change I noticed is her Screw Attack works like the one Samus had in Melee.
King K Rool - He looks like a heavy people will have fun with but I don't see him being a very strong character. Nothing about him looks particularly exceptional.

Just watched the direct. The amount of content in this game is insane :lol: Love it. The new assist trophies look awesome and it's great to see Rathalos in there.

It really is. And people were worried it was going to just be a port of 4 :lol:

Makes me wonder if it will be the first Switch game to use the 32gb cartridges. 70 odd character, 103 stages, 900 music tracks...it's adding up.

I'm a fraud Castlevania fan since I've only played the first two DS ones (which were godlike). But I remember unlocking Richter in one of them and thinking how cool he was. So I'm pretty hyped he's in Ultimate >,>

Considering how Echo Fighters are so easily placed in the game now, what characters would you guys like to see? I just realised there could be potential for Ganondorf to have his Phantom counterpart as an Echo Fighter. I would legit freak out if it actually happens.
