Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is planning its latest tourney, which will focus on the Blast Box. During the event, many of these items will be appearing during battle. While they can be hazardous, if you use them properly, they can give you an edge in battle. The types of spirits you can receive will improve as you pick up more wins.

Metroid Dread still feels a little surreal. The shock of a new, original 2D Metroid was palpable when Dread was announced, but the more one thinks about it, the more amazing it seems.

It’s the first original 2D Metroid in almost two decades, a span of time in which an entire genre named after the series has sprung up and seen thousands of games following in its footsteps. It’s a game that has expectations to live up to that seem almost unfair but somehow manages to exceed them. Metroid Dread is real, and it’s a masterpiece.
