A good presentation, surprised at Corrin and Bayonetta's inclusion. Corrin moveset looks pretty cool as well as Bayonetta's.
The videos announcing them were great as well. I expected Corrin would have been a new fighter for the next Smash Bros not DLC for this one. I thought Bayonetta's was going to announce another Kid Icarus character at first.
So did anyone vote (or knew someone who voted) for Bayonetta here though? I'm not against her being in, it just I really did not expect her to do so well in the poll.
Also great to see the Takumaru Mii fighter costume get in, though I was a bit surprised to not see more costumes get in (when they said 5th and 6th waves I expected more).

I think Corrin being in this Smash makes sense, since by the time the next Smash comes out, who knows what will happen to Fire Emblem. Between Melee and Brawl, Fire Emblem went through 3 iterations; similarly, Fire Emblem 15 may very well have come out if they are going to have a next Smash. Corrin would have been old news by then.
And new remix of if ~Hitori Omou~ (I haven't watched the presentation in English)! Yay!
Bayonetta was... well, I certainly didn't expect her. If she's #1 among the realisable characters, I wonder who are unrealisable. Some say non-game characters and those with licensing issues, but I suspect Inkling may also be one (with the ink physics and whatnot).
Also, time to watch the vocal fans cry about this presentation.
I voted for Isaac. Don't know if they'll track IP, so I voted only once per language* and machine (home computer, phone and work computer).
* English, Japanese and French; those are the only languages Smash is released in and I can write.
Smash Bros keeps trying its damndest to make me hate Fire Emblem. Remember how people always saw Ergheiz as an FF7 fighting game? Now Smash Bros is a Fire Emblem fighting game with some other characters thrown in. It's like, Fire Emblem x Mario x Pokemon.
Eh, I haven't bought any of the DLC. Nintendo goes overboard with the prices of its DLC. I gotta say though, when I saw Pit on the Bayonetta trailer, I was thinking "Oh god, we better not be getting another Kid Icarus character."
I was pleasantly surprised.
I just really REALLY wanted Golden Sun to have any sort of representation. We'll never get a new game.

Because she's a character trope/archetype that you can find just about anywhere else. Which doesn't help one bit when you have a whole bunch of otherwise unique/interesting characters in the same series as her. Plus, she was not even in the first game.
It's reached the point where they're deliberately trying to turn the series into "Ashley & Friends: Featuring Wario". People recognize her, but they don't know about what series she's from, nor do they even care to look into it. Everyone's forgotten about all the other characters as a result.
nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?

nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.

nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.
