End of the week, here we come! Everyone make sure to get your rest this Saturday and Sunday. Next week is going to be the busiest time of the year for Nintendo fans! Cannot wait for that...but for now, sleep! See you in a few, short hours.
Just incase you didn't remember the info coming from a previous Nintendo Direct, Nintendo and Sakurai reconfirmed today that we will indeed be getting our first look at Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS next week. I can't believe we've already come full circle for a new Smash Bros. game. The excitement that that brand builds up certainly rivals that of other big-name Nintendo brands, and is even bigger than some.
I can't even begin to fathom the amount of hours I've pumped into the Smash Bros. series. I remember spending so many months with the original Smash Bros.. I didn't think I would ever play a game more than that. Then Smash Bros. Melee came out on the GameCube. If I had to pick one game I've played more than any other in my life, that would have to be my pick. The same would be said for Brawl if I didn't have to become a stupid adult and do adult things all the time!
Now we're coming up on a brand-new installment in the series. It's also the first time that things are going portable. I still don't know how I feel about that, but I know it isn't a bad thing. I just need to see how/if the two titles work together and what you can experience on both sides. I think I might be more excited for this entry than any other.
Of course, one of the most exciting parts is looking at the brand new roster. There will indeed be returning favorites, but you know there has to be at least one or two newcomers in there. If I had my pick of two characters to make their first-time appearance, I'd have to go with Mega Man and Travis Touchdown. I really think both of those guys would have a lot to offer the series.
Those are my picks, now what are yours? Who do you want to pop into this fight for the first time? Leave us a comment and let us know!
