Just three words: EVERYONE IS HERE!
Finally, every character previously featured in a Smash game is in the same game! In my opinion, I was very excited when I first saw that Direct that confirmed every character, especially with Snake and Wolf's return. Even seeing characters I didn't care about at the time (i.e. Young Link and Pichu) made me glad they're finally back. And yes, this includes Dark Pit, who I really hated back in Smash 4, but I started to see him in a better light now; and no, that wasn't because of the Echo Fighter branding, but because I wrongly thought he got in over others when it wasn't the case.
As for the new fighters, I really loved every single one, especially Daisy, Ridley, Simon, and King K. Rool, all of them for finally making their Smash debuts. Daisy because I think she was the Mario supporting character who maybe needed this the most; Ridley because of his hitting the BIG time meaning a lot for the Metroid fanbase; King K. Rool for similar reasons to Ridley, but for DKC instead.
In regards to Simon, it's more of a personal one, as I'm a big fan of Castlevania, so of course I was very happy to finally see him (and Richter too) in Smash (like I was with Ryu's inclusion in Smash 4), but that also means Konami came back to Smash stronger than ever, what with Snake returning, but all those awesome Castlevania and Metal Gear songs. Coming from Konami, that really says something.
Anyway, as for the gameplay, it really improved in all aspects. Kinda wish there were more single-player modes like Home-Run Contest, but who knows? Maybe they'll get added later? At least now it's possible to play an all-Ice Climbers or all-Guest Fighters 8-player Smash (who would have thought it'd be possible to see Snake, Sonic, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Ryu, Cloud, Bayonetta and Simon all in the same match?)
Only thing I didn't like was certain highly requested characters only making it in as Assist Trophies, but it's less that they aren't playable, and more that they took so long to be debunked, when it appeared at first that they would be more than Assists (unpopular opinion: the Assist I wanted to be playable was surprisingly not Waluigi, but Krystal; at least she's aknowledged, after Star Fox Zero kicked her out of the franchise).
Overall, the pros GREATLY outweigh the very little cons, so there are no excuses for not trying this game. If you have a Switch, this game is a MUST.
