Andy has some nonsense idea in his head that Smash Brothers for Switch is going to be a port of last gen’s Smash. Well there is a special guest on this week’s show for a new special segment called “A New Challenger Approaches” that has some choice words for Andy and will duel him to the death! The boys go over the anticipation of the impending Nindies Showcase, the Hype zone gets anatomic (again) and they talk last week’s Retro Game. All this and much more!
Cloud, Bayonetta, and more Fire Emblem characters await.
Today, at 2 P.M. PST, Nintendo gave their last Super Smash Bros Direct; and boy did they deliver. The director of Smash Bros., Masahiro Sakurai, went into further detail of Cloud and the character has been releases as of this writing.
Mr. Sakurai also announced two new fighters to join the ranks of Smash Brothers sometime in February. Corrin and Bayonetta! Corrin is the protagonist from the new Fire Emblem entries Birthright and Conquest. Smash Bros. will have a male version and female version of the character (Much like Robin and Wii Fit Trainer) . Bayonetta is of course the heroine from cult classics, Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 and will be sporting costumes from both entries of the series. On top of these three unique and extremely detailed characters, Nintendo announced two new stages, a hand full of new song tracks and a closet full of Mii costumes.
