Smash Speculation: It’s over!

Hey so Super Smash Bros for 3DS has been out for a while (in Japan), and the whole of the roster is known to all. Even to me. Even though I tried to resist. Sometimes people just aren’t very good with their spoilertags. And by that, I mean they don’t realize that spoilertags exist for a reason. Whatever. It’s not a big deal.

I had originally planned to do a final entry in the Smash Speculation series this week, but I just don’t feel like bothering. For one, I’m just tired of doing these samey write-ups. That’s the big one. Sure, they allow me to be a little creative and indulge my fantasies, but each one reads the same and they aren’t fun anymore now that I know that there isn’t the slightest glimmer of hope of them coming true.

And that leads into the second reason I’m done early: not a single one of my predictions came true. Yes, there are a ton of new fighters in this edition of Smash, and most of them are wonderful and look like they’ll be a lot of fun to play, but it’s a little discouraging to be so far off-base. There are a couple questionable newcomers though, and I think that even my dumbest suggestions would be better than a clone of an already kinda lousy character.

OH WELL. I’m still incredibly excited to play the full game, and the demo has certainly made the wait easier. It’s also a much more effective outlet for my hype than these silly write-ups. Only nine more days to go…

For those interested, I was considering Shantae as today’s character. I know she isn’t a Nintendo character, but she’s mostly made her home on Nintendo systems. She would certainly be a more fun (albeit less iconic) third-party character than Sonic. I was playing as him in Brawl the other day, and man, Sonic is just no good.
