[Let’s Talk] Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct reactions

Posted on August 11, 2018 by (@NE_Brian) in Let's Talk, Switch

Within the past week, Nintendo announced and debuted a new Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct. The presentation was confirmed at EVO 2018 last Sunday, and was hosted just a few days ago on Wednesday.

Like the segment from Nintendo’s E3 broadcast, the Smash Bros. Direct was packed with information. King K. Rool, Simon and Richter Belmont, Dark Samus, and Chrom were all revealed as the latest fighters. We heard that 103 stages and roughly 900 music compositions will be present. Classic Mode, Stamina Battle, a Final Smash Meter, Squad Strike, Tourney Mode, Smashdown, and Training will all be included. There were other surprises as well such as Rathalos and Shovel Knight appearing as Assist Trophies.

Based on everything that was shown, were you pleased with the Direct? Are you more or less interested in Smash Bros. Ultimate after the latest presentation? Let us know how you’re feeling in the comments below.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – August 2018


Pool Panic! I was going to get Iconoclasts, but I am so worn out by Hollow Knight and Celeste, and needed something completely different.

Finishing up octopath within the next few days then I’m starting Titan quest and jumping back into Ys. As for non switch stuff just got back into smash 4 on Wii u then shadow warrior 2 and Halo odst on xb1

Nocturnal YL

WarioWare Gold. It takes quite a while if you’re aiming to unlock everything.


Trying to work on my never ending backlog. Currently playing the first Bioshock from the collection disc (it’s just as good as I remember and looks great! ) as well as Yoshi’s Island DS
