Felix and Sylvain are my faves, so naturally I'm super biased and disappointed that they aren't background characters lol. But other than that it's a great stage with a great music selection, and Byleth is also really fun to use!
I've been obsessed with Three Houses since it came out, so Byleth being in Smash is perfectly fine by me, although I also would have preferred another character like Claude or Dimitri. But Byleth looks like they'll be fun to use, so I'm looking forward to that and the new stage/music.
I was talking about that before and I jokingly said they purposely released Piranha Plant early to compete with KH :P
Nah but seriously Piranha Plant is actually really fun to use though; so far I've only used it in Classic mode but I really enjoy its play style. Also like...it's a Piranha...
Oh that bugs the hell out of me too. Him being an echo of Roy is really the only thing that makes sense, but even that's kind of dumb. Surely they could have given him Id Purpose as his victory theme anyway? It's just weird.
Piranha Plant isn't being distributed until February. And yes, World of Light does have difficulty settings. (I haven't played much of World of Light yet, though - I've been working on unlocking everyone through Classic mode)
I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I honestly thought the Subspace Emissary was tremendously boring. THIS story mode looks amazing, though. I have no idea how I'm going to make it through another month.
(Also, I believe all the stages are available from the beginning.)
I am VERY happy that every character is coming back, including the previously cut ones. Very hype indeed.
I do hope that the Inklings and Ridley aren't the ONLY new characters we're getting, though. I understand with such a huge roster already that we won't be getting a lot of new characters...
