The build up to the next edition in the Super Smash series was more than worth the wait.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate came to the Nintendo Switch in December and it has been a rockstar ever since we started playing.
The Switch has been a welcomed console in the household with previous games like Kirby Star Allies but now it has come to be the dominate console thanks to this game.
We enjoyed Super Smash Bros on the Nintendo 3DS and had hopes this newest game would live up to the hype.
Let’s kick off the Super Smash Bros Ultimate review with what we enjoyed with the game.
The introduction of new characters into a franchise can always be questionable at best. Nintendo knows how to make the right choices.
Whether it is a fan favorite, like Ridley, or one we would have never dreamed of, Piranha Plant. 99% of the time, they nail it. Sorry Waluigi supporters.
The new bosses and battle arenas helped add a new level to the game play. Nintendo did a solid job of creating unique challenges to keep us locked in.
Despite all of the praise, there are a few negatives with Super Mash Bros Ultimate.
One problem we have is not the game itself. Rather it is the accessories related to the game. Specifically Nintendo and their practice of holding back how many items they release in the market.
Over the years, we have seen this happen many times, and this time it is with the controller adapter. The item was selling for $20 when Nintendo offered it for sale. Once it was sold out, the item can be found at various online merchants for $100 or more.
Despite this issue, this is not a reason to pass on the game. If you are new to the franchise, it is an inviting game and easy to pick up. If you are a fan of the series, there is no option, buy it.
