Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Thoughts from a gamer who doesn’t quite get it
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is going to be a monumental release for Nintendo.
Based on the performance of previous games in the series, we can assume that the majority of folks who already own a Nintendo Switch are going to buy a copy. And many of the friends they invite over to play who don’t yet have Nintendo’s popular hybrid console are going to have so much fun that they’ll rush out and drop hundreds on both the hardware and software so they can own it, too. It’s almost going to be like a console launch triggered within a software launch. Just in time for the holidays. It’s the sort of sales event that comes around only once or twice in a hardware generation — if you’re lucky.
