I am in the same boat; I preordered it on Amazon a few minutes ago. I know that hearing some of the game's music had a big role.

That, plus the multiplayer overview video, plus the new trailers, plus Nintendo's marketing, plus the Famitsu 40/40...

Holy shit. I really should never have doubted this game, it's Sakurai, after all.

That actually seems pretty hard to believe. TWEWY (PGOAT) scratched the shit out of my lower screen.

A screen protector for Uprising seems like a must. If people are getting one, I'd recomment the HORI protector.

My understanding is most scratches come from getting bits of dust and such between the stylus and the screen.

From my own experience, most of my scratches came from when I was using the touch screen pretty casually (scrolling through items in Pokemon, etc.) whereas I played through TWEWY and didn't get a single scratch from it.

Ah yeah, that explains it.

I obsessively wipe my screens.
Before I start the system, when I boot the game, any loading screens, random pauses, pretty much whenever I'm not in a tight situation.

I actually think (it's impossible to make sense of Sakurai sometimes) it's a good idea to use more "original" controls than make a classic home console shooter.

I remember one of the first things Sakurai said was how he wanted to use original controls.

Of course, these controls are not doable on the 3DS only (Wii U, etc.), but at least for the majority of them it's not something you would see on 360/Ps3.

ps. well, we already destroyed R with Mario Kart 7, now we are going to destroy L.
Oh wait, i'm left handed so i'm still going to use R, right? crap.

pps. hoping the game has a " Join the Game " option in the dashboard. please don't be like Revelations?

Same for me, put my pre-order down a couple of days ago after being wary of the game for a long time. The information we've been given lately really made a favourable impression on me. Game seems to be full of content and good gameplay ideas.

Even the devs at Treasure were designing/testing the game with the Gamecube pad; it got to a point where they had to rebalance the whole thing once they realised how much easier it was to play with the pointer.

Unreal.

This is looking more like a 40/40 title in the tradition of titles like Soul Calibur. I just can't believe how many features there are.

Btw, here's a link to a youtube playlist of the tracks released so far:

LOL, I ended up resubscribing to Nintendo Power when the three cards in the upcoming April issue piqued my interest. I read some sample pages, decided the editorial was strong and resubscribed.

Use a CPP lol. Then it'll become a disposable $20 L button.

:/ forgot that the L button was the side that wasn't replaced. we're SOL then!

I can't imagine why anyone would worry about this. I've never had button issue with a Nintendo handheld.

That said, just wait to pick up the inevitable system upgrade in 18 months. :/

Normally Nintendo's hardware is pretty good and I haven't had any issues in the past but the one thing I have heard failing after a while on the DS has been the shoulder buttons. I never used the buttons a lot so I didn't have any issues. However since this game will be using it a lot I'm just a little concerned.

This has gotten me thinking. SSBB was developed under Sora with game arts and other additional employees. Do we know who is working on this besides Sora? It is my understanding that Sora is a relatively small company with few permanent employees.

Is there any chance that Treasure is aiding this project? It would seem like a natural fit given their prior work on the Sin and Punishment series.
