So apparently, if you scan non-fighter Amiibos in Smash Ultimate, you get Spirits corresponding to those Amiibos. But if you scan an Amiibo for a fighter, even if it's not the Smash version of that character, it just goes into the Figure Player setup.

Speaking of spirits, I find that I care less about the 3D aspect of trophies*, but I'm missing the descriptions a lot, just for some context on who this character was and why that particular battle was fought. I know the descriptions took significant dev/translation time, and there's enough info there to just Google them - still, I have a lot less incentive to go for a spirit I know nothing about compared to a trophy I knew nothing about (aside from completing the list, which I'm not sure if I'm going to do).

I'm surprised at how many of the "dark counterparts" themed classic modes have Lucas in the Claus costume, also without context - Link/TL/YL in the Dark Link costume is at least really obvious if you've never played a Zelda game, but Claus requires a level of familiarity with Mother 3 that most people out of Japan likely won't have, unless they did something Nintendo wouldn't have wanted them to do.

* Though seeing some characters that had never been officially rendered in 3D before was neat.

Confirmed, I just scanned Marina and got the Off the Hook spirit.

Finally home from work, went through my list of Spirits and here's what I got from my non-fighter Amiibos that I scanned last night before bed.

Shovel Knight - Shovel Knight Primary Spirit (Attack, Ace, 2 Slots, No Trait)

Alm - Alm & Celica (Young) Primary Spirit (Neutral, Novice, 3 Slots, Can Be Enhanced at Lv. 99); becomes Alm & Celica (Neutral, Ace, 3 Slots, Back Shield Equipped)
Celica - Same as Alm

Bokoblin - Bokoblin Primary Spirit (Neutral, Novice, 2 Slots, Battering Items Power Up)
Daruk - Daruk Primary Spirit (Shield, Advanced, 1 Slot, Weight Up)
Urbosa - Urbosa Primary Spirit (Attack, Advanced, 2 Slots, Electric Attack Up)
Mipha - Mipha Support Spirit (Advanced, Cost 1, Critical-Health Stats Up)
Revali - Revali Support Spirit (Advanced, Cost 1, Shooting Attack Up)
Guardian - Guardian Support Spirit (Advanced, Cost 2, Weapon Resist Up)

Midna & Wolf Link - Midna Primary Spirit (Grab, Ace, 3 Slots, Can be Enhanced at level 99)

Metroid - Metroid Support Spirit (Ace, Cost 2, KOs Heal Damage)

Callie - Squid Sisters Support Spirit (Legendary, Cost 2, Fast Final Smash Meter)
Marie - Same as Callie

I tried scanning my Shovel Knight Amiibo again to see if it would give me multiple copies of the spirit, but it gave me a message saying I'd already claimed the reward for that Amiibo. I assume this is to prevent you from cheesing the game by just rescanning the same Amiibo over and over again to dismiss for Spirit Cores to level up your other Spirits.

Important headsup:

:sweetielarm: DO NOT PLAY Piranha Plant, Mii Swordfighter or Duck Hunt Duo in the Single Player modes right now! :sweetielarm:

Some people report that after the 2.0 update, those characters could have lead to them getting savefiles corrupted. It's not a 100 percent thing, maybe it's not even real at all, but better safe than sorry so please watch out. If it's a real problem, Nintendo will hopefully hotfix it ASAP.

https://www.reddit.com/r/smashbros/comm ... _has_been/

Most likely savegames can be recovered via the cloud, but again, not 100 percent certain.

I did classic with Plant as well as trying Century Smash with them (digital version) and haven't had anything, but I could have just got lucky.

I also did Classic with the Plant and didn't run into any problems. Hope whatever the issue is gets tracked down and resolved quickly.

On that note, Piranha Plant feels really fun to play as.

Man, get a load of this joker:



Also, some Persona and Sonic the Hedgehog Mii Fighter costume bits:



These will be available when Version 3.0.0 goes live which is... *checks watch* tomorrow, apparently.

The Hero is out and he's nuts. Random crits on smash attacks and a randomly generated selection menu for his down special means that you're pretty much constantly improvising. It helps that all three of his other specials are also nuts when charged. His weaknesses are reliance on an MP meter that's filled by landing normal attacks, and said normal attacks not being all that great. I find him really fun to play so far, though. I definitely want to get good with him.

I enjoy how thematically incongruent the improvisational nature of Hero is in Smash compared to the base source, where combat in DQ tends to get simple enough to work from a four line flowchart.

Terry Bogard was announced today as the 4th character (leaked a bit earlier, SNK character that is).

Banjo is out today. Also out is a set of Mii costumes including... everyone's favorite skeleton, Sans.

Clever way of finally shutting up the "Sans in Smash" people without actually putting him in the game.

The final Fighter for the first Fighter's Pass DLC is Byleth, from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

The amount of salt in the Something Awful Smash Bros. thread is amazing. :allears:

They have a game where, soon, Sephiroth can fight Minecraft Steve while Megalovania plays.

I think they understand something that goes beyond time.

Smash has finally become Mugen and I appreciate that

Also gonna learn to beat the snot out of Sephiroth with Minecraft Steve just to upset all the childish dumbasses who threw tantrums over an extremely popular franchise getting rep in Smash
