BECAUSE I FUCKING CALLED IT!
HOO BOY! Today's been one HELL of an eventful day for me on the internet! Nostalgia critic review food fight today (go watch that after you read this if you haven't already), Starbomb released the LOZ rap music video
and biggest of all, THE SUPER SMASH BROS DIRECT!
Advance warning: SPOILERS!
Ok! So a LOT was revealed during this direct. Some of it was technical and online stuff which I'm not interested in, because I'm not a big online player anyway (Those of you who know of my experiences of playing yugioh online can understand why online metagames infuriate me)
But a lot of the things that DID interest me were things I totally predicted! I so fucking called a bunch of this stuff!!!
Let's go over some things~ First up: Items
So the Beam Katana's back, and this time it looks like it draws it's power from THE FUCKING SITH! Glowing all red with an evil looking hilt. Awesome.
Zelda shows her true colours by detonating link with a motion sensor bomb
Well EXCUUUUUUSE me princess!
The pow block is confirmed!
The beetle from Skyward sword is basically a mini landmaster kill.
a new sword item from mario appears, the fire bar. Which decreases in size the more hits it lands. Such a clever idea!
A back shield which protects from attacks from behind.
Bombchu, a moving explosive.
The fairy bottle appears as a healing item. Could this be replacing the heart container?
We get to see the Ore club from Kid icarus in action.
the X bomb detonates both horizontally and vertically.
Olimars ship is shown in action as another new bomb item.
A jet pack called the rocket belt grants more air time. Mac seriously needs that.
And lastly the steel diver gun which shoots mini torpedoes.
Then there's assist trophies
Andross, devil, knuckle joe, Waluigi, Lyn, Saki, nintendog and dr wright all make their return.
Skull kid is shown in action, vertically mirroring the stage.
Mother brain fires a seizure beam.
Midna is confirmed as an assist trophy! And she whips her hair back and forth! she whips her hair back and forth! Sad that she's not a playable character, but hey, whatchu gonna do?
Ashley is shown in action, creating what will basically be the new negative zone now that Luigi has the Poltergust instead.
Dark samus appears, doing some cool evil spike shit.
and chain chompm appears too, doing what chain chomps do best. bite everything!
Isabelle chucks out heals, and gives folks feels.
and ELECMAN appears and throws lightning bolts. Sorta surprizes it's not air man or quickman given their popularity in pop culture...
but the best assist trophy BY FAR... PONG!
Following that, we have pokemon. Masterballs are confirmed, and they contain the rare and legendary pokemon.
Arecus create meteor smash inducing waves!
Meowth and Electrode come back.
eevee is confirmed as a new pokemon.
Staryu and Metagross are back.
Fennekin is confirmed, and uses ember. As well as Meloetta, who fires music discs, and Gogoat who charges around the arena, AND YOU CAN RIDE ON HIM!
Entei returns too. As does Deoxys.
Palkia rotates the screen.
Kyurem is confirmed and uses Blizzard/Glaciate
Victini is also confirmed and uses some sort of star power.
Keldeo has also been confirmed and uses Sacred sword.
and lastly, xerneas is confirmed as a pokeball pokemon, and uses Geomancy.
after that, there's updates on the returning fighters
Samus and Zelda no longer transform. Zerosuit samus and Shiekf are no seperate characters, and all 4 of them have new specials to replace their transformation moves. Zero suit has rocket feet now to power up her kicks. Zelda can summon a phantom knight, shiek gets a new bomb attack.
Kirby's hammer is now a charge attack, and his final smash has been changed to his super move, ultra sword
Dedede throws gordos instead of waddledees now. HOORAH!
Lucarios aura is stronger, and his final smash is now Mega Lucario and all his aura attacks max out.
Olimar only has 3 pikmin following him at a time in a set order, his recovery is now better as long as he's not holding pikmin.
Pit can no longer glide, but all of his other moves hit harder and his recovery move is more efficicient. His final smash is now the 3 sacred treasures.
Called it! ... Sorta
Yoshi is confirmed to return, and stands more upright... That's all we got from him.
following them, Sakurai tells us more about the new fighters.
He basically explains the playstyles we've seen, so instead I'll show you what we didn;t know, their final smashes!
Rosalina fires power stars in all directions with a grand star
Little Mac becomes giga mac. And mac also gets an alternate costume, his wire frame look from the arcade punchout.
Alternate costumes! Called it!
Villager calls in the nook family, who builds a house around his foes that explodes.
Megaman calls in ALL his other incarnations, who fires lazer blasts in an awesome cinematic!!! seriously capcom! Why can you not treat this character with the same respect nintendo is doing!?
Wii fit trainer has a poer up move, and a charge up projectile attack. She also has a male conuterpart who plasy the exact same way she does. It just comes down to choice with them c:
Alternate costumes again! Called it!
Following from there, we discover than in matches with friends or solo, you can customise your characters moveset! Changing the mechanics of how they work! This is gonna throw all the tiers over our heads! FINALLY!
After that, there's the reveal of SMASH RUN. A new battle mode exclusively on the 3DS. This mode has players traversing a massive stage, fighting various enemies from all across nintendo games, and take power ups, which will be used in a free for all match afterwards, completely altering how players control from normal matches. THIS IS SO COOL! It's like a multiplayer adventure mode with super battles afterwards! And since it's clearly based on Subspace, but has improved elementas that I predicted (more enemies from actual games and more varied looking areas) this technically counts as a called it!
you can even used special abilities and there's also various hazards that can occur during any game of this.
And that was the nintendo direct, I personally felt this was-
That's right! In typical sakurai troll fashion, he saves the best for the very last just when you thinks is over after the outro sequence!
We get the reveal of Charizard, as his own singular playable character this time! Sporting some new moves and his new final smash: MegaCharizardX! Oh but he wasn't alone in the revails in the sequence... For another new challenger strikes from the shadows
GRENINJA MAKES A SPLASH!
That's right! Another Newcomer folks! And this time it's Greninja, who I totally predicted!!! And daaaaaamn this trailer makes me wanna main him so bad!!! SO MUCH WANT!
So yeah, as you can guess, I'm super happy with this
and the best part, the 3ds version comes out this summer! So we'll be able to have all our juicy details before then! And you can garuntee I'll be playing it!
So tell me what you guys all think about this?
And how many of you thought Greninja was mewtwo at first? I wasn't fooled, but I know a lot of people were, so go on and admit it xD
