Poll: What Did You Think Of The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct?

As the dust begins to settle, and as we finally manage to retrieve our well and truly blown-off socks, it seems like now is a good time to take a look back at the shenanigans, reveals, and juicy info that were all present in the recent Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct.

Many went into the Direct with a degree of caution, preventing themselves from any potential let downs, or even annoyance thanks to the Smash-heavy E3 presentation, but the online reaction since the event seems to have been mostly positive, leading us to question what else Nintendo and Sakurai-san could possibly announce.

Before we ask you for your opinion on all things related to the show (via the lovely polls and comments section featured down below) feel free to watch the full video again to recap if you need to. We had the character announcements for Simon and Richter Belmont, King. K Rool, and Chrom and Dark Samus as Echo Fighters; the single-player Classic mode was confirmed to be making a comeback; a handful of new multiplayer mode options were revealed; and even the shocking ‘death‘ of our favourite green hat-wearing moustachioed plumber amongst other things.

So, with all of that nicely cleared up, it’s time for you lovely lot to let us know what you thought. Go ahead and leave your votes in the polls, and make sure to share any extra thoughts with us in the comments down below.
