I’m hyped for Piranha Plant! It’s random and stupid and I love it.

Can I ask what was the worst announcement in today's Smash Direct? I think the answer will be unanimous. Ken was great, Incineroar was fine if you're into Pokemon, but Piranha Plant, ugh, that has to be the most underwhelming character ever in Smash Bros.

I'm sure there's about six or so people who are absolutely hyped about the plant. For the rest of us... yeah...

Isaac being an Assist Trophy again was especially heartbreaking for me. I love Golden Sun, I've been rooting for his inclusion as a fighter since Brawl and I honestly thought this would be his chance. So sad.

On the other hand, Incineroar was honestly one of my most wanted fighters, so I'm glad to have him at least.

I'm probably an outlier, but for me the worst announcement was the loss of trophy collection. that was my favorite part of the past couple of games. I loved amassing statues of Nintendo's history and trying to collect them all.

Wait, I haven't watched the direct yet but you can't actually collect trophies in this one? What the hell Nintendo?

I didn't realise that the trophy collection was cut. That's disappointing. I didn't see all of the Direct. Does that mean that the Coin Launcher mini-game for trophies is gone as well?

Yeah, my guess would be that there isn't a mini-game for getting trophies anymore. Maybe they'll have one for getting spirits, though. But they didn't mention one.

Well, I completely disagree. Piranha Plant saved the direct for me. He will be my new main!

So, I'm still heartbroken about never getting the much requested Krystal, but they can add a god damned piranha plant? Not even Petey? Just a plant?

And Ken, wow, Capcom totally deserved another slot...

Every time I think I'm getting over my frustration with this game...

Piranha plant was most likely incredibly easy to implement, so I don't feel like it was a waste at all. I'm actually pretty excited about it. I just wish they could have announced the DLC fighters.

My only disappointment with Piranha Plant is the constant stubborness of Nintendo of not adding personality when they add minions or common NPCs to their games.

I would have liked if PP had a CG trailer, and highlighting a personality. I mean the trailer highlights PP has been from the beginning of the Super Mario games. He's also being a good boss character in the Yoshi games and in terms of Mario characters there are worse enemy choices.

I also kind of like Nintendo not feeling over adding weird ideas to their games despite the dismay of some its fanbase. Not all characters need to fall into the humanoid shape.

High five. Not everything needs to be formal and "expected."

Variety is the spice of life.

Exactly. I'm still smiling Smile Sure hoing to test him out. Tbis will be fun.

Im sorry this is one time where I feel bad for the LEGIT Waluigi and Toad fans. Nintendo literally slapped them in the face and was like "Waluigi and Toad aren't playable material but you know what is? A random Piranah Plant mook" Im not even a die hard Waluigi fan and I "felt" that reveal...

I'm a real big Waluigi fan, I really want him to be playable, but I'll be playing Piranha Plant FOR SURE! It looks just awesome and fun to play. Also, they recently started a video feature with a Piranha plant named Izzy, so I'm not THAT surprised. :O

Not having my most wanted character don't stop me from enjoying what we DO get. What a sad life would that be only bemoaning what I don't have... Sad

If I were Sakurai I'd make Waluigi one of the paid DLC characters to see how many people are legitimate fans and how many are just in it for the memes. Whether or not that's the reasoning I expect Waluigi to be DLC.

I'd be very happy. Hell, Waluigi Character summoning Waluigi trophy would be awesome. :P

Can I just say, thank you Blessed Sakurai for the bitching out Dumbass Waluigi fans got with friggin' Piranha Plant! 🤣🤣🤣 A hahaha a, but then remember our fallen Heroes Isaac, Shantae, Black Knight, and Shadow the Hedgehog. But, here's hoping DLC cause they said no more Echo Fighters.

I'm loving today so far.

Yo we legit almost had a Piranha Plant as a partner, Paper Mario:Sticker Star turned out how it was supposed to be. Poor Miyamoto.

I had the perfect Image but can't figure out how to post downloaded files blah! 😒

I really wanted Whispy Woods to be playable, but Piranha Plant is kinda the next best thing.

They've both on similar levels of being truly iconic gaming characters, everyone recognizes them

Whispy should appear as a boss.

OK. Finally got the chance to watch the entire Direct now, and 'm even ore excited for this game. The trailer for the single player mode really gut me pumped (and damn I laughed good when snake got caught when hiding in his box Smile )

Piranha Plant looks AWESOME!!!! I mean it's funny and all, but looks really good as a fighter also.

The Spirits look interesting and even rather handy, but I will miss trophies -_-

Online might be good. Hope it's far better than SMash U when it comes nto connevtivity. But that damn chat app... GAH, Nintendo and DeNA! Oh wll, at least the dedicated Smash Ultimate app looks good.

Will be interesting to see who nthe other DLC fighters are. I'.m sure a surprise or two will hit us! =)

But now I am surer than before: I'm so getting this game!

Can't hate on Piranha Plant. It's more iconic than %90 of the rest of the roster. Plus it looks so whacky!

August Direct's character reveals were way cooler though.

Yeah! It's wacky and iconic in so many ways. I understand people wanted something else, but surprise surprise! And from what they showed, Piranha really looks like a good fighter. Again, I understand people expected something else, but Piranha is a cool kid! Smile
