WHO I WANT TO SEE IN THE SUPER SMASH BROS ULTIMATE DLC!

On 1st November 2018, we had the final (finally!) Nintendo Direct dedicated to Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Masahiro Sakurai presented the all the news that we needed before the game is released, this includes the full list of characters now revealed and the various game modes which will be present in the upcoming release.

With Ken from Street Fighter, Incineroar from Pokemon Sun and Moon and even Piranha Plant from Super Mario are all about to make the advance to battle as the final confirmed fighters for the main game. BUT…this isn’t it! The Direct also confirmed that DLC would be released for the game in five parts! Each DLC will see a new character, a new stage and various music. We have around a year of updates to come and it could be almost anyone that could make the roster of playable characters. But who is gonna come to the game?

I have thought about this over the last few weeks, having a small discussion or two with friends over who would be perfect for the new game and why they would fit in perfectly. Without any further delay, here are the five fighters who I hope will join the Ultimate line-up!

Earthworm Jim – Earthworm Jim

Let’s be honest, Super Smash Bros is mostly known for throwing almost anyone together for possibly the craziest and most fan-pleasing roster in existance. Earthworm Jim is just a superb character who could hold his own against any challenger. Where as he could use his worm body as a whip, use his suit for strength and super jumps and maybe a final Smash which involves his trusty blaster? I would just love for this character to be taking on Ken and Ryu in a good ol’ fist fight!

Lara Croft – Tomb Raider

I will be honest, this one is possibly the most unlikely to make the DLC, but I have got a good point to make. Before this series of games, would you believe Solid Snake would be interacting with Wario or that Sonic and Pikachu could share the same stage? Lara Croft is perfect in forms of agility, she could make weapons throughout the battle and how about seeing her twin pistols play a part in her final Smash? Also I want to make it clear, Lara Croft from 2013 onwards would be the character. But maybe a skin of the 1996 original.

Crash Bandicoot – Crash Bandicoot

With the release of Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy coming to the Nintendo Switch a few months ago, wouldn’t it be a great time to bring the former Playstation mascot to the battle? Sure he is mostly known for spinning around and jumping on things, but he could definitely be a force to be reckoned with if he dons the Aku Aku mask. Final Smash, Aku Aku blasting someone into space! Oh, how about throw in Tiny or Ripper Roo as well?

Chun Li – Street Fighter

If you say Street Fighter to someone, they will possibly remember Ryu and either say “Hadouken” or “For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday”. For me, Chun Li is just the best character to come out of this franchise. We may have Ken now too in the game, but Chun Li is just a whole different experience and someone who would be so cool with some powerful kicks and a final Smash that probably involves her famous thighs causing some big damage.

Waluigi – Super Mario

FOR F**K SAKE! JUST PUT WALUIGI IN THE F**KING GAME!!!!!

Sorry about that, but number five I think is reflected in the Smash community to quite the appropriate level. I had to really think which characters could possibly work well as new fighters, but I then came to the realisation that almost any video game character could make the cut.

What do you think of this list? Do you have any particular character you would love to see in the game? Let me know in the comments.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out on Friday 7th December!

The Five Biggest Video Games Still To Come In 2018!

2018 at E3 was…well, it was E3! Some surprises, a few in depths of upcoming titles and more memes being created than ever before (Dennis at EA, poor guy!). But, amongst some of the disappointments and less than stellar reveals, it is fair to say that Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo have got some genuinely brilliant titles on the way! With the likes of God Of War, Dragonball FighterZ, Celeste and the re-release of Shadow Of The Colossus entertaining and exciting the gaming world, I want to give a spotlight to some other releases you need to be playing before Christmas!

Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu/Eevee

November 16th 2018 on Nintendo Switch

I start with this double hitter, the first true (don’t hate me, internet) Pokémon game to reach Nintendo’s hybrid console will be arriving this November! Unlike previous games in the core RPG series, this game will see the traditional meet the immensely popular mobile app Pokémon Go. While many may not be too happy with a change in the structure, rest assured that Trainer Battles and the Pokémon League is still in effect! Plus there is that Generation 8 RPG due in 2019, so see Let’s Go as a warm up and I am sure you will enjoy it!

Spider-Man

September 7th 2018 on Playstation 4

Every now and again, a Spider-Man game comes along and it actually does really well. So far its Spider-Man 2, Web Of Shadows and I am sure maybe a SNES game that was good, so the hope for a great release is definitely one. Luckily enough, Insomniac Games has been developing this one for quite a while and by taking its own canon will allow it to breathe and grow on its own. With an impressive roster of characters and breath-taking visuals, Spider-Man could be the PS4 game of the year!

Forza Horizon 4

October 2nd 2018 on XBOX ONE

Forza, a car racing franchise with a number of titles to rival Need For Speed but with arguably more high quality entries than the multi-platform game. Forza Horizon 4 has got me excited as it looks set to take place in the UK and servers will be able to take 72 players at a time! Weather will shape and modify the tracks and I admit it is one damn good reason to own an XBOX One X! It may be Microsoft’s last exclusive for 2018, but it will be a damn good one!

Fallout 76

November 14th 2018 on XBOX ONE and Playstation 4

Return to the wastelands with this video game which is set before all the previous games in the series where your character emerges from Vault 76! Fallout 76 will be an online playable game and this time you can link up with friends to tackle all the hazards that you will face. All human characters will be actual players in what will truly be 2018’s most immersive and hopefully deepest video game!

Super Smash Bros: Ultimate

December 7th 2018 on Nintendo Switch

Possibly the most anticipated game of the Nintendo Direct at E3 was SMASH. BROS. Returning! It was announced that not only would this game feature the largest roster so far, but EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER that has ever appeared in the franchise would be playable in Ultimate. The gameplay looks smooth, each character appears well balanced and it will definitely be the early Christmas present for all users of the Switch!
