    I will never cave on smash, played the original got bored after a few hours. Bought second game just in case I was missing something the first time, got bored once more, vowed never to go there again. Itís just not for me.

    @andytheadequate if you were smashing the attack button until you won in Octopath you were playing it wrong. And you were also hindering your progression as it rewards you for using its features efficiently with extra money, EXP and JP.

    Aww for a second I thought they were announcing Persona 5 for Switch but it's just Smash DLC.

    Surely it will come at some point. Atlus always does portable versions of Persona games, and the Switch is killing it at the moment.

    Wait, wtf. Why would they have a character from P5 if no Persona games are on the Switch? Unless a further announcement is incoming...

    I dunno, it seems like the mainline ones are tied to Sony consoles. Hope I'm wrong though, because I would looooove P4G and/or P5 on Switch.

    It's not like Cloud has ever truly appeared on a Nintendo console either.

    Seems to me like that doesn't even matter anymore. At this point, Smash is not just a celebration of Nintendo things anymore, it's a celebration of videogames in general.

    To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if it happened. Nintendo seem to have a good relationship with Microsoft at the moment. Master Chief, Fenix, or Ori or stock Minecraft dude could turn up. Who knows!

    Master Chief and Minecraft chap were my guesses, although chopping up Mario with Fenix sounds fun.

    Iíve only got played Smash on the N64 which I really enjoyed. Iím just worried if the online is choppy and as this is Nintendo I expect it will be.

    Smash Limited Edition on sale at Argos for £74.99. I just remembered the boy said he wanted ďthe game with the Street Fighter characters and looooads of othersĒ so figured I might as well grab it at that price especially as the GC adapter is not due in the UK until mid-next year apparently.

    Is the GC controller really good or something? Or am I better off just flogging it?

    @The_Goon The GC controller is the preferred choice for people that play the game seriously, or so I am told. I never found it essential on the Wii SSBM game. That was the last one I played, skipped it on the Wii U. For me it is a great game for local multiplayer. I havenít bothered with it for the Switch but my daughter is getting it. I have a Club Nintendo Mario GC controller and a few normal ones. I have ordered one of the Zelda ones. Mostly because I love LoZ. But I wouldnít say that the pads are necessary.

    Smash just came out so there's no way they'd want Metroid stealing its thunder.

    Played about an hour of smash. Gave in and bought it. As someone who has never played Smash before I have NO idea of what Iím doing. Itís not very user friendly. Could do with a tutorial.

    Down with your sensible reasoning!

    I guess so, but Cloud has been around for like two decades now. He's known and "established" in a way that Joker isn't. Joker is from a new(ish) game, so including him is a bit weird if you can't play this new game on any Nintendo system.

    Anyway, if other modern console exclusives are now fair game, I nominate Kazuma Kiryu and Majima Goro from the Yakuza series. They'd fit right into Smash.

    Fuck it, get Ryo from Shenmue in there.

    @Mola_Ram I mean, they did publish a remaster of Yakuza 1+2 on the Wii U in Japan, so there's that.

    I think at this point any character is fair game, as long as they are not an obvious exclusive property (not expecting to see Kratos in there of course). Hell, maybe even MS characters could work.

    But the point is that they probably won't take anyone who doesn't make people hyped. Would Smash buyers really care to play as Marcus Fenix? Yeah, didn't think so. The only MS character I could see, would be a Rare one. Even among third party games, there's only so many that will make people really interested. Joker probably counts because of the Sega ties and because P5 is getting a big marketing push lately. And let's not forget it's the best selling Persona game (and SMT game in general) by a country mile.

    I still think that Rayman or Shantae would fit nicely. And they have both been quite requested.

    Noticed that Smash is $60 on the US Eshop but £60 on UK. PC Game Supply will do $60 worth of credit for about £47.

    I won't though.

    Well, I might.

    We'll see.

    I won't.

    Yeah this. I'm in the same boat. It throws a lot at you. I think i'm just going to try and just have half hour sessions using a new button and just getting to grips with it, as well as watching some youtube videos

    Just pick one character and practise their moves. If remember rightly each character only has about 5 different ones so don't take too long to learn. After that it's about strategy and timing.

    Although saying that, I only ever played the game modes with all of the extra power ups and modifiers as I could never figure out what they were.
