So can we expect events like Splatfest in ARMS?

Also, here's the new title screen.

Don't like the kid Cobra jump nerf, but he should be on the ground more often then not, so we'll see how it plays out. Hedlok mode sounds great, can't wait to try it.

I really wish they would add the option to use split joycons without motion controls. I prefer that to using the grip.

I very much agree. I somehow hadn't heard this to be the case until this weekend, when I tried to play against a friend (it was his introduction to the game too!) and battled this issue.

In the past, I'd played with more casual groups and chose motion anyway so it wasn't an issue... a simple toggle would be great especially given Splatoon 2's extensive control offerings!

They've been capable of this since Splatoon. The reason for no Smash patch notes was because the game wasn't made internally at Nintendo EPD.

I really don't like the balance changes. There were no character buffs and the changes they made to the arms don't really change any of the cheesy strategies people have been using in ranked. Cobra's jump nerf doesn't really make sense to me either. Kid Cobras never really jump anyway...

Smash isn't even internally developed by Nintendo like how Splatoon, ARMS and Mario Kart are, lol. Sakurai's always gone by the beat of his own drum.

The problem is that it ranges from "Industry Standard, AAA or Otherwise" to "Lol Sakurai" with no in between.

No one else is dropping the ball in that department.

Just beat Grand Prix as Max Brass on Level 4. Completely unchanged other than Biff’s dialogue’s making the scenario slightly different than it is for the other fighters. Grand Finale is mildly amusing.

Yes it is but honestly all they needed to do was remove the hover board things and the stage would be OK to use IMO. Game is sorely lacking in variety as is...

I mean, what's the point of that stage if we don't have the hover boards, the thing that makes it special? Well, I guess the music is neat. May as well leave it out of Ranked for now.
