  1. I wonder what’s next for Smash after the last fighter in the past. Maybe what comes after the Switch will have a special edition of Ultimate that includes a few new modes and a rather small pool of new characters? Smash is too big of a selling point for Nintendo to just retire, but would enough people play a title with a massive reset to the roster?

  2. Honestly, I’m finding Kazuya to just be “meh” and hard to justify having another character who automatically faces opponents in 1 V 1’s after Ryu, Ken, and Terry; that felt cool at first and unique to Ryu and Ken, but…

    1. As someone who wasn’t immediately familiar with him and said “huh?” Upon his reveal, I am actually impressed with the character. Used him for a good while last night in release day and I was enjoying him!

      I prefer him over the other fighting game characters, like Ryu and Terry.

      Figuring out how to use some of his other moves is actually exciting. His devil laser is also really fun to use as well.

  3. I know this is off topic. I’ve just purchased Kazuya today. And the drift on my joycons is attrocious. Had my switch since launch and they have never been this bad. Drift has always been ever so slightly present but its like over night it got 20 times worse. Anyone ever have this issue ?

  4. Guys. I know this is off topic. Just purchased Kazuya today. The drift on my controllers (I’ve always had a slight issue since launch) has gone nuts. Its like 50 times worse. Has this ever happened to anyone ??? trying to play Kazuya seriously with this issue, aint happening
