      I know it's release day, but I'm hearing the music that we thought was the theme song, and it ACTUALLY IS LifeLight in the background. It's slowed right down but it's there :)

    Still the greatest trailer in Smash Ultimate shown.
    It wasn't just the reveal, but how it was revealed.
    How it was presented all dark in the mysterious was amazing.

    Going back, you can hear Ultimate's theme pretty clearly in the background after it zoomed up on the characters.

    I love this reveal still. The whole "welcome to hell" feel to it.
    The tremble in the inklings eyes as it realize where it is... as if they tell stories about this place. Legends they can't tell for sure if are real or just meant to scare kids.
    The jaded greeting of the veterans... They pity newcomers to this life, but they have also seen them arrive many times before.
    Mario: "They aren't ready, they shouldn't be here."
    Link: "None of us should."
    Edit: Added an imagined conversation.

    Never has my brain gone into such a sudden and spontaneous meltdown than it has seeing this live for the first time. Best reveal Nintendo has ever put out
    (Has anyone noticed by the way that the ink at the beginning looks like a 3. Seems like Nintendo were really trying to throw people off course in the first few seconds)

      pretty sure they just did it so people could discuss in the comments because nintendo disabled comments for their own video, and this was probably uplaoded before nintendo put it on their channel too

    (Inkling girl makes an ink path then inkling boy appears)
    Inkling girl: You'll never take me alive!
    Inkling boy: oh yeah?
    Inkling girl: Yep! (Throws a splat bomb)
    Inkling boy: AAAH!
    Inkling girl: see?
    Inkling boy: okay I'm out can't do this anymore.
    (Inkling boy disappears and it's dark)
    Inkling girl: what the heck?! Darkness?! But it's the middle of the day! Where are you inkling boy?
    (Inkling girl looks behind her)
    Inkling girl: WHAAAAAAAT?!
    (SMASH BROS logo made from flames appears out of nowhere and inkling boy reappears)
    Mario and link: we will never stop staring at you until you join smash Bros.
    Inkling girl: Okay! Okay! Well join.

    • Gengaguy
      Gengaguy 15 days ago

      And that's the part where it says light will guide you on your way to the ultimate fight. It all makes sense because the smash logo is lit up and it's smash ultimate.

    Whether i get this game or not,
    i've never seen a reveal trailer so well done. The reveal of the smash logo was perfect.
    Any composure you had inside was gone the second you saw it.

  • CarsonTheCookdude
    CarsonTheCookdude 29 days ago +4

    Here’s a neat detail:
    At around 0:44, when the smash ball was revealed, you can hear the main theme being hummed. It’s very quiet but just take a listen!

  • Mauricio Gomez

    The foreshadowing of this trailer is amazing. It shows what happens at the end of the final smash direct, which all the characters just together, emotionless showing their deaths, whilst in the background you hear the faint vocal track of what appears to be the main theme tune

    Guys wouldn't it be something if Daisy, Ridley, Simon, Richter, Chrom, Dark samus, King K rool, Isabelle, Ken, and Incinaroar were playable in this game? But what are the chances of that ever happening? it's as likely as A piranha plant being free dlc.

    • True Roman
      True Roman Month ago +1

      I mean, it objectively isn't a port no matter what people say. Just take spirits mode AND the new Adventure/Mini-Subspace mode alone. All characters have new animations in moves, new artstyle, returning stages all look improved, new techs, new everything is what i'm saying... how does that = port to people?

    Coming back to say that the World of Light reveal's entity that shot the beams charged up with the same note and similar sound of this reveal trailer. That suspense build up to the Smash ball. It's a neat retread of the doom.
