So... I recently went on a spree and upgraded my collection.
Originally I just had Super Mario Odyssey but I recently picked up (physical copies):
• Mario & Rabbids Kingdom Battle;
• Rayman Legends;
• Super Smash Bros Ultimate;
• Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
As well, I grabbed GRIS from the download store. I hope to get that strategy game from the devs of Faster than Light too (don't recall the name).
I'm ecstatic that SSMB Ultimate includes all the original N64 stages and starts with the original N64 characters. The gameplay feels great, albeit a bit fast paced. I'm a fan of the N64 & Brawl pace vs Melee but I know I am in the minority.
The revised Classic mode is great! I think the pacing is excellent and I really like how the difficulty scales depending on your performance. I don't think I will touch the story mode / spirit mode anytime soon.
I'm only disappointing that it seems like all the stages are unlocked from the get go. As well, character unlocks don't have significance to them. I've only played about 12-15 matches, locally, and I think I have unlocked at least eight characters. Not to mention the fights are extremely pathetic. I understand for newcomers / beginners the difficulty is lower but common. If I am having a local free-for-all with bots on LVL 8, please adjust the unlocks accordingly.
What kept me tied to Smash Bros N64 was playing nearly a 100 matches and then coming across a really difficult unlock i.e. Luigi.
That being said, it's really just a small complaint. I've only played the game so far in portable mode. The joycons surprisingly do it justice. The right stick can be used like the C-Stick on the Gamecube pad too. Feels good. Also, running 60 fps on mobile? This is crazy! I've played for about 2 hours straight and my battery level was at 43%. I am damn impressed!
