*shrug* Smash tends to be the system seller, while the rest are "I'll definitely buy if I have a Switch."

 

Although I think Splatoon might have replaced Smash as the better system seller. But we shall see.

Yeah I am sure that Smash will sell a lot of systems however it won't sell more systems than a Zelda or Mario game. I looked at what games sold the most for the Wii U, and Smash I think finished 5th overall behind mario and zelda. I just don't get the additional attention it gets versus other games that sell more.

I’ve been starving for more official smash news. However, I could totally see how those who aren’t fans are let down by the non-Smash news this year.

Because you don't seem to know what system seller means. Just because it sells more, doesn't mean it's what gets people without Switches to buy a Switch. Smash on the Wii U was the fastest selling title, and generated significant console sales, regardless of how many it ended up selling in total.

 

See here. You can tell right away when Smash Wii U released. Hint: It's the second highest quarter, beaten only by the launch quarter.

Well considering Smash is their only game pretty much worth a damn for the year, I figured fans would be shouting from the rooftops about this direct. LOL

 

Yeah, I personally don't see this converting anyone who wasn't interested in the first place, but since this is it for the year, why not? My son was just asking me last week if a new Smash direct was announced, or direct in general and I told him a Smash direct was more likely than just one showing new games. I figured since this is the big holiday title, they would have a direct for no other reason than to drum up buzz and try for the best push possible for the end of the year.

This just looks exactly like Runner 3 with a Bubsy skin...

 

When do preorders go live?

Yeah, that's what I thought seeing the trailer, which is why I'm not understanding all the hate. Yeah, Bubsy has been a **** character and game from the start, but this easily looks like the best one yet, hands down. So even though it's a following in the foot steps of another game, at least it's a good/successful one, which maybe they should have done from the start. LOL

LOL, yeah, I forgot about that. I guess they didn't want to jinx this project, as we all have seen how well that phrase worked in the past, as the first game pretty much answers that question in spades.

I loved Runner 1&2 and disliked 3. They added too much nonsense to the gameplay that it got overly complicated and ceased to be fun.

I seriously do not get the treatment that super smash brothers is getting from Nintendo. They are having a total of 3 directs with two of them solely for Smash. You would think that Smash Bros is the best selling franchise for nintendo by far but it isn't. Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, and Splatoon never got three directs, some didn't even get two directs. As a person who doesn't care for Smash, it seems like Nintendo is just trying to find ways put out directs in a very slow year. 

Part of it probably is that it's a slower year: Mario Kart, Zelda, Splatoon, and Odyssey all came out in the same year, but Smash is the game for this year.

 

But I think a larger part is that a game like Smash lends itself better to a slow drip/big hype of information.  With Smash, you can have a Direct and show just a few characters at a time, maybe a new mode.  Then another to show a few more, and some stages.  Then another to say "this is it!  This is everything you're going to get!"... If you tried to do the same thing for Zelda, the content wouldn't generate as much attention.  Talking about "You can take your horse to a stable in this game!" for 10 minutes isn't going to get as much hype as "We're adding Simon Belmont!"

 

And it's just that fighting games in general are easier to hype.  Street Fighter 5 has been out for over 2 years, and still hasn't hit 3 million copies sold.  The new God of War hit 3 million in a matter of days... but only one of those games fills arenas with spectators, and it's not the latter.  Fighting games may not sell as well as single-player narrative games, but for each Smash copy sold you've got a few more people that didn't buy but will watch the events.

Not really a fan of the auto runners like that... but for those that are, ok... there you go... Bubsy Runner 3.

 

I'm cautiously hyped for the final smash direct.  The Castlevania crossover helped push this from something I was buying mainly for my kids to something I'm actually interested in playing regardless of if they want to play.  Hopefully there's some incentive to play single player.

 

Overall this year was fine by me.  After playing and falling in love with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (and buying the N3DS port of the first game and X for the WiiU) I got Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Torna and soon enough Smash.  It's been an easy year on my wallet as I only picked up around 8 new release games between all systems with my latest game being Cat Quest (loved that, got the physical release).  I think I've bought maybe 8 games on older/classic systems.  It's nice going for just what I want to play and not having a massive backlog on Switch.  My vita collection also is shrinking as I spent time weeding it down to just what seemed fun.

I was a bit concerned as the smash direct was running until the end... that Adventure Mode is right up my alley.  I'm a bit miffed at needing to spend another $25 to get the full experience with the DLC characters.  They had to make part of it that Xenoblade 2 Mii outfit.  Overall though, I'm pretty hyped to play Smash Bros.  The amount of characters making appearances (even if not fully playable) is very respectable.  Like Shantae popping in there or the various ways ARMS characters show up.  Seems like this is going to be the fighting game of all fighting games when all is said and done.

The amount of content in Spirits and the Campaign is just unbelievable. I don't know enough about Smash to know if it was ever balanced but Spirit mode just looks like it will last an eternity for those who want to level their character and create custom character builds.

That direct overwhelmed me, yet I'm glad to see that adventure mode because I'm not a competitive player. XC2 outfit alone makes me a $25 pass buyer.

Same here. I typically go physical for games that I imagine will have good resale value but I want to be able to boot D3 anytime because I'll likely only play solo and in 20 minutes sessions.
