Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s final Nintendo Direct presentation showed us a quite a bit. New challengers, new amiibo, new mechanics – and today we’re going to round it all up and discuss its possible effects on the amiibo metagame. It’s safe to assume that no more major information about the game will be shown until its release, which means this may be our last pre-Ultimate analysis before things change for good.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch was revealed today, and hence its name, it’s the biggest entry in series history. Every Super Smash Bros. character returns: Solid Snake, Young Link, Wolf, Pichu, and the Ice Climbers are all making playable appearances.
Here’s some even better news. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will feature amiibo training, and we can use our data from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.This means that our existing set of training guides is still relevant for those of you who want to prepare for Ultimate’s launch on December 7th. I’d recommend playing exclusively on Battlefield for the time being, seeing as the layout of Ω-form stages has been altered to include platforms.
We will be releasing an all-new set of amiibo training guides tailored specifically to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As mentioned earlier, our existing training guides will help serve as a basis for the new games. However, potential changes in character movesets (and the fact that equipment and custom moves may or may not exist) warrant a new set. Thanks a million for all your support, and we hope you look forward to the new amiibo metagame!
Mario Kart has never been faster! 200cc sets the power of the engines to their maximum and offers some of the most challenging gameplay in the series. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe includes just one unlockable character – Gold Mario – and to unlock him, you’re going to have to clear each cup on 200cc difficulty with at least one star.
The Gold Glider is one of the most elusive kart pieces in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, and it can only be unlocked by collecting a massive 5,000 coins (it was 10,000 in the original Mario Kart 8)! Though you could just race with friends for a few hundred hours, there are faster ways to farm coins in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
As a remastered version of Mario Kart 8 on the ill-fated Wii U console, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe introduces a wealth of additional content to keep players interested. One of its notable changes is the removal of (most) hidden characters; even so, there are still a number of unlockables left for you to obtain.
