      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 :)

    It's been around a year since the trailer's release. It's time I'll make the opinion of how this trailer holds up. On the positive side, it does a great job of getting most longtime Nintendo fans to prepare for Ultimate. At first, the footage looked like it was another project of Splatoon, but then things gets dark and then the huge fiery Smash logo comes in with veterans being in presence most notable being Mario and Link wearing the BotW outfit(Which made think things are gonna be different this time) at a time. This causes me to once negligence to Switch to made me want a Switch. Since then, I've come to accept the Switch only for that game. On the negative side, all the problems that Ultimate had except the multiplayer aspects made me regret the trailer a little bit seeing that the game had a short development time compared to the last 2 games which had several years of development & being too ambitious for it's own good thus the single player aspects suffers with modes missing from previous games, World of Light being the absolute worst Adventure Mode ever in Smash, AND THAT GODDAMN HORRIBIFUCKUS PADDING DESIGN OF CHARACTER UNLOCKING WHICH WAS THE WORST THING THAT SAKARAI HAS DONE! But overall, the trailer aged well since as of right now, the game has the best multiplayer aspects ever(Except for the lack of Coin Smash which was sorely missed due to whatever reason that Sakarai has done due to his overambitions).

    I went back to this trailer after Ultimate came out. Just to hear it…to hear the choir again.
    That’s Lifelight. Our first taste of Lifelight, and we barely heard it.
    Our first sweet taste of a theme that swirls in your ears like the smell of fruity perfume.
    This whole trailer is a beautiful look into something that really made this year.
    It went on for almost the whole year.
    That’s the one thing about 2018 that we must remember forever.
    It’s the year of Ultimate.
    The Ultimate year.
    It‘s been an Ultimate year.

    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.
