There was a lot of hype yesterday over the latest Nintendo Direct. I don’t know about you, but my heart was racing for a good chunk of the afternoon. Ultimate is going to be a great game.
There’s a lot of great things coming to the game, but here’s what I’m looking forward to the most.
Smashdown Mode & Tournament Mode
I was always a huge fan of the competition-like styles of gameplay. I remember putting Melee on in the background while I worked, the tournament mode with all computer characters and just watched them all duke it out.
In fact, I still do that now with the Wii U version of the game, but I create my own tournaments and just remember which characters I already used and such.
Having the tournament mode back made me so happy. I can’t wait to watch the computer players as I work or play with my friends and cousins and beat each other up.
I’m also excited for Smashdown Mode. I have just a handful of characters I use all the time. I always say I’ll try someone else and then never do. Also, my cousin uses the same character as me so when we play it’s usually just two clones fighting.
I’m looking forward to trying Smashdown Mode so we can fight over who gets to grab Zelda first and then it forces us to try out new characters.
Overall, I’m super excited for the game and I can’t wait to give it a try. There’s 3 months left and I feel like it’ll take forever to get here… then again, it’ll be here before we know it.
At least we have Super Mario Party and Pokemon to tie us over until then.
