The Nintendo Treehouse is about to launch into some gameplay of Ridley, so, that’s it, that’s my whole day. That’s my whole year. This has been a very fun Nintendo experience. Thanks for live-blogging along with me losing my mind, Chris.
That ruled. CHRIS. That ruled! I’m so excited to hear more about Smash from the folks on the ground at E3.
My heart rate. Is. Elevated.
RIDLEY EXPLODING A DANG PLANET
YOOOO MECHA RIDLEY SKIN TOO
THEY SAID HE WAS TOO POWERFUL
THEY SAID IT COULDN’T BE DONE
is this.... is this Ridley in Smash... IS THIS.....
OH MY GOD
“The fighter in the lead will sometimes flash with light.” Oh, cool, Smash finally incorporated the part of a four-player Smash battle when everyone starts screaming “EVERYONE GANG UP ON [PERSON], THEY’RE AHEAD OF ALL OF US”
Some way-too-short glimpses at all of the Smash stages. There is so much Smash information in this conference. SO MUCH. They seriously just launched into a closer glimpse at the “directional air dodge.” Are you going to teach me some beginner combos next, Sakurai?
Even more Pokemon? Excellent. My all-Pokemon Smash battles with item levels set to “high” are gonna be siiiiiick.
The Splatoon inkling looks mega fun to play. Excited to roll that OP roller around. “All of them have their own outfits.” Again, thank you Smash, for recognizing how important outfits are in this game.
DAISY as her own fighter!!!!! Oh, that’s wonderful! Way better than just giving Peach an alternate costume.
The Wii Fit developers asked for the Wii Fit Trainer’s face to get a makeover? Wow. Would love to be a fly on the wall for THAT conversation. “Excuse me Sakurai but her eyes should be shaped in a slightly different way and we’re NOT GOING TO LET THIS ONE GO.”
Okay, so, I guess Final Smashes are in this game still. Did we know that? I mean, it’s not a shocker I guess... this is moving so fast!
Ahh, yeah, I didn’t even think of that... having to develop so many different Kirby abilities for this fighter-packed iteration of Smash. Gotta be rough.
You can play as a female Pokemon trainer! AND PIKACHU LIBRE IS A GIRL. Okay, great, now let me play as Link as a girl. NEW SMASH IS NO BOYS ALLOWED
Ooh, a better look at Zelda’s dress. It’s from Link Between Worlds, which makes sense.
