Coming into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a background in traditional fighting games has been quite the challenge. There are so many differences in the way that Smash plays compared to other fighting games that my mind and my hands have really struggled to translate my skills to this game. On paper, it seems like Ryu would be the perfect fit for me, as he retains most of his move set from the Street Fighter series. Without having to worry about what moves I’m pulling off or how to use them most effectively, I could just play and let my instincts do the rest.
Now that I’ve had a few days to play it, that isn’t the case at all. If anything, he’s actually one of the harder characters to play due to the way he controls.
Everyone is here. Including me! Join me for my first time playing the retail version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! I unlock King K. Rool, Marth, and Ryu, before playing a few matches against my brother Randy!
