SUPER SMASH BROS
New info on the Minecarft stage.

You can actually choose what biome you go to on Steve's stage by imputing button commands! Makes me wonder if they are going to release an update where you can do this with every transforming stage.

EDIT: patch notes.


EDIT 2: So I found this thought provoking comment about Sakurai and I wanted to share it.

jsteele01 Wrote:Most of what we hear of Sakurai is his seemingly insane level of dedication to his craft. But the more I look in to Japanese culture, specifically Japan’s cultural issues, I’ve learned that kind of [over] work [ethic?] is problematically common across Japan.

Articles about Japanese people literally overworking themselves death are easy to find, and the statistics associated with those articles are alarming, to say the very least. Tons of companies have taken preventive measures to limit how many hours per day their employees can work for them, some even implementing daily mantras and rituals to enforce new habits and put a stop to overwork culture.

Not to take anything away from Smash’s creator, of course. But now I think Mr. Sakurai and his extreme work habits are more of a product of his culture, rather than the ‘one in a zillion, insane loner genius ’ stereotype/ trope he is often portrayed as.

I would like to add this: I feel that there's no need for Sakurai to take a year(s) long break or step down, as many people suggest. What he actually needs is some sort of therapy or self help to get him to balance his job and his health properly. In other words, what he needs is help finding that life-work balance.

With that being said, if Sakurai actually wants to take a vacation then it's cool. I mean, why would anyone be against that?

I know I'm late, but Nintendo dropped a patch 9.0.1 out of nowhere.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 9.0.2 update coming soon.

Nintendo Versus Wrote:Ver. 9.0.2 of #SmashBrosUltimate will arrive in the near future! This update will include fighter adjustments, meaning replay data from previous versions will be incompatible. Convert your replays by going to Vault -> Replays -> Replay Data -> Convert to Video, before updating.

Correction: This update will not feature fighter adjustments.

The Big House Online Canceled After Cease & Desist from Nintendo

This one is about Melee rather than Ultimate, but I still think it belongs here.

Is Sephirot. The 8th DLC character is Sephirot. He's coming this month.

Geno and Sora fans are obviously not happy about this. But hey, they still haven't revealed the Geno Mii Costume.

EDIT: Mr. Sakurai Presents announced for Sephiroth on December 17.

Pyra/Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 are the next DLC Fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, coming in March.

INB4 "EEWWWW!! Another anime swordfighter!?!?"

Will Smash fans ever realize/find out that swords are the most common type of weapon in pretty much all of fiction? Probably not.

EDIT: as for the character themselves, they are alright. It's nice to see more Nintendo characters/reps after getting so much third party DLC, yes I know we already got Byleth and Min Min, but still. It's good specially because this new character comes from a Nintendo franchise that (before today's reveal) only had one playable rep. Extra points because it's not a character from Fire Emblem, a franchise that has enough representation as it is.
