So, I came up with a cool idea when I was thinking about Zelda and Smash the other day.
We’ve had a wide variety of Zelda characters in the Smash games. For Ultimte, we’re going to have three different Links. We have a different Zelda this time than we have before. All of this is cool and I’m looking forward to it, but I had a thought and I wonder how well it would do if it were true.
I think it would be cool for each character to have their own costume set.
Hear me out…
Most of the characters have different versions of themselves along with different powers or move sets. You can change the colors of their costumes, but what if, instead of just having a different color, their costume changed?
We could have Twilight Princess Link, Toon Link, Young Link, Breath of the Wild Link, etc. We could choose between any kind of Zelda and they can each have their own unique move or two.
Mario, granted one of his costumes kind of looks like the fire flower, but what if he could only shoot fireballs in that costume? We could have ice Mario, Tanooki Mario… Tanooki Mario is in Mario Kart, why not Smash?
Luigi can be himself or have his Poltergust 3000.
I get the characters would be uneven in this sense and a lot of those mechanics are in the game anyway. I’m happy with the way the game is, but I think it would be cool to have a bunch of different Marios duking it out. The same character with the same move set other than one or two unique moves or powers.
Does that even make sense? I’m not sure if my explanation did my idea justice. Again, I don’t want Smash to change and I bet this idea would be really had to program in, but… I think it’d be cool to see all the variations of the characters nonetheless.
