Well my copy of Ultimate arrived.

The controller I ordered and was told by Amazon would arrive today... didn't. And won't until Monday. Or possibly Sunday. Amazon can't agree with itself.

So I'm stuck unless I want to learn a whole new control scheme.

Honestly, I'm disappointed that Joker from Persona 5 made it into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as DLC of all characters. It just seems like Wolverine Publicity more than anything given P5's insane popularity in the west, especially since there are characters from more relevant JRPGs in Nintendo's history that are more deserving to be in Smash like Chrono from Chrono Trigger and Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia.

[up]To be fair, taken as someone who represents mainline SMT as well as Persona, Joker makes a lot more sense. Shin Megami Tensei has a very long and storied history on Nintendo systems, after all. I still would have rather seen Jack Frost, myself, but I can kinda see the logic to it.

Crash Bandicoot or Banjo & Kazooie could probably match or exceed this, depending on who you ask. Waluigi being the last reveal would also be funny and get a loud reception.

[up][up] Fair enough. I have nothing against Persona 5, the Persona series, Shin Megami Tensei, or even Joker himself. It's just that I felt his inclusion in Smash was off-putting for a few reasons.

But I guess a positive to his inclusion would be that he's the third JRPG character to be in next to Shulk and Cloud.

Had a fun night playing SSBU with friends.

I felt like my main Peach was a little awkward to play. Since the switch between air and land felt slower, which hurts the way I play her.

Of the characters I used, I really liked the new Zero Suit Samus. Especially her jumps felt super responsive and tight.

I'd also never played Cloud before, because I didn't have the DLC in 4, and he was a blast.

Cloud was OP as fuck in his initial state in the previous game.

Well, it wouldn't be a Smash Bros game without stage hazards that the AI is completely unaffected by that utterly fuck over human players.

There's a very specific definition of what a JRPG is nowadays and Pokemon and Mother aren't it even though they technically should be

Fire Emblem probably(???) is though so yeah I dunno

I'm pretty sure that everyone considers those series to be RPGs.

Yeah but nobody cares about Mother nowadays and Pokemon is kind of in its own weird super mainstream bubble so neither gets brought up when it comes to JRPGs specifically.

Dec 7th 2018 at 5:21:40 AM

Mother and Pokemon have some stylistic differences from most modern JRPGsnote , but they absolutely qualify literally and mechanically

Well, speculation is probably done until February when we might get both PP and Joker. Maybe then a tease to DLC #2.

Actually, have they ever said when is Piranha Plant dropping?

The amiibo comes out in February, so my guess is the character will be out in January. Then Joker in March, and DLC Packs 2-5 in May, July, September, and November respectively.

Speak for yourself. I long for the day when they announce an official Western release of Mother 3.

I don't literally mean no one, but it couldn't be less relevant recently. Smash is the only thing keeping it most people's consciousness.

Dec 7th 2018 at 6:28:55 AM

I can agree Pokemon being a mon catching and battling game isn't quite what people think of for JRPGs mechanically, but Mother series definitely is. Just because it's not relevant to modern gaming since the series ended doesn't change what it is.

Also, I'm wanting a Runaway Five AT now. Not sure if they'd provide a musical buff to the summoner for a bit or if they'd all pop out and try and mob the other fighters for a bit...
