Super Smash Bros Ultimate: Review Round-Up



Smash Bros Ultimate reviews are rolling in as the game releases and they're pointing to a really positive release in the series. All indicators point to a game that isn't just a rehashing of prior titles, but a full fledged sequel packed with the most content the series has ever seen. Let's take at Nintendo's description of the game and a round-up of reviews:

Overview (from Nintendo eShop page)
New characters and stages join the entire legacy roster!

Register your game with My Nintendo by Jan. 31, 2019, and Piranha Plant will join the battle when it’s available, around Feb. 2019! Learn more >>

Gaming icons clash in the ultimate brawl you can play anytime, anywhere! Smash rivals off the stage as new characters Simon Belmont and King K. Rool join Inkling, Ridley, and every fighter in Super Smash Bros. history. Enjoy enhanced speed and combat at new stages based on the Castlevania series, Super Mario Odyssey, and more!

Having trouble choosing a stage? Then select the Stage Morph option to transform one stage into another while battling—a series first! Plus, new echo fighters Dark Samus, Richter Belmont, and Chrom join the battle. Whether you play locally or online, savor the faster combat, new attacks, and new defensive options, like a perfect shield. Jam out to 900 different music compositions and go 1-on-1 with a friend, hold a 4-player free-for-all, kick it up to 8-player battles and more! Feel free to bust out your GameCube controllers—legendary couch competitions await—or play together anytime, anywhere!

I guess I'm picking this up tomorrow. Hopefully it's available digitally (I haven't preordered it anywhere) since I haven't checked the eShop recently.

Was hoping for a rental, but GameFly pushed the release from today to the 11th. We will see if they fulfill my rental or not.

Anyone pick this up and have any feedback on it and/or Simon Belmont yet?

I wish I could get into these games. It's not that they're devoid of fun. But it feels like something is missing from them, some sort of campaign or something. I don't know. Anyway the kids are getting it for Christmas so I at least get to try it out and see if this one falls flat for me too.
