Smash Ultimate doesn't feel very casual friendly

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash Ultimate doesn't feel very casual friendly

Smash was never Casual after the N64 game. The game is ultimately built around Esports. Its crazy fun but can be hard as any thing.
I loved the N64 game, it has a charm to it that the others dont, but i see why they opted for the current game design.

Good games have options and challenges. They could've made getting the characters moderately hard and then have you unlock alternative character designs in a hard mode. It's very easy to make games hard, it's hard to make games good.

As the difficulty on the World of Light mode... I´ve heard that it´s a matter of combining the best spirits. Maybe for certain fights you need certain spirits to make things easier.

Its true, there's like 4 different types of spirits that can get and level up and some are stronger against a specific set of spirits(shield/sword,etc). I have a few to level 99 out of each category

I'm loving it. I was so confident on doing hard mode in WoL and I've been getting my ass kicked. It really takes me back to Mele's challenges and how satisfactory it was to complete them.

Also I never thought Smash was that casual. Sure it was accessible but it never was an easy sell like Mario Kart to the casuals.

I find them extremely easy in the World of Light. They are tough in the main screen when you get challenged.

I haven't even touched World of Light yet. I wanted to get the complete roster first. Just been having smash battles and going through classic.

Now that I think about it, World of Light requires you to unlock all the characters again aside from Kirby. And since the fighters you unlock in World of Light unlock in the base game, but not the other way around, there's actually very little incentive to not just go through WoL. :/

Well, I'm having a lot of fun just doing the classic mode. I love that they are all different for each character. World of Light will be when I want to learn about spirits and collect them :P

Smash Bros. was never casual friendly.

Or at least, it was never friendly to beginners.

You can't button-mash your way out of anything in the game. You get your teeth kicked in every single game if you play against oldtimers.



I'm new to Smash Bros and am an experienced gamer, not in hardcore territory though, I just play and enjoy games and am happy to invest time in them and try to get better.

That said, Smash Bros really could have done with a tutorial mode. I still don't have much of an idea as to what's actually going on. It's a strange and bonkers game, and I had a very rough knowledge of the game in advance. But as I said, I'm still baffled while playing, and if you didn't know about the knocking off the platform etc.., you'd be completely stuffed in my view.

At this point, I'm not really enjoying it, but I will persist and maybe do some research into what it's all about. However, you shouldn't have to do this in this day and age, so a bit of a fail from Nintendo in my view.

I wouldn't even begin to ask someone who had never played it before to join me for a game, they'd probably think I'd drugged their drink!

I haven’t watched the How to Play video in the movies submenu, but if it’s like the other entries, it should help you with the basics you need to understand how to play the game. I hope it’ll help you enjoy the game more.
