First of all, lets talk about DLC that was kind of already announced. For $5.99, players can purchase one set, which includes a new playable fighter, a new stage, and a variety of music tracks. For even more, Smash players can buy a Fighters Pass for $24.99, and get access to five yet-to-be-announced sets, which include five new fighters, five stages, and multiple music tracks, as they release. Players who purchase a Fighters Pass will also receive an in-game outfit based on Rex from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 starting on the 7th of December. The Piranha Plant character will also be a bonus if you pre-order the game.
This version of Smash Bros will have a line up of fighters like none before it. It has 70 fighters -which include all fighters from previous games, plus some. This is something that has me intrigued, as you will never get bored with the line up; plus, the DLC will add even more. They also showed a little bit of the single player mode and the beginning of the story. I find it interesting that there is more of a story in the single player mode this time around - something that might keep me playing this game.
To be honest, I am not a huge Smash Bros fan. I buy this game on every console just to have it in case I have people over, as this game is very easy to pick up and play. That being said, it is easy to play but hard to master. I will be picking this game up in the future, maybe for Christmas, but we will see. Are you excited for this game? If so, what has you excited?
