Subspace easy. I can play Event mode on other Smash games but this one is the Adventure mode now? Hell no. I just want a well done, co op Subspace 2. You don't even need to have tons of cutscenes. Just playing with a friend going through a stage with Sonic and Mario is novel and fun enough.

Subspace had its issues, we get that. But it kills World of Light which is just a glorified event mode. I laughed during Subspace, was genuinely interested by what was going on with some of the characters...the same can't be said for WoL.

How does each improve? Well, make World of Light the Event mode in the next smash. And make Subspace 2 with Nintendo/3rd Party themed worlds with a light story and meaty campaign. While World of Light felt like grindy busy work, Subspace felt like a compliment to the multiplayer focus of Smash.

^This!!



Some days I just blow up.

Definitely subspace. It felt more like a journey together, whereas WoL was just endless fights. I just wish Nintendo would go the KH route and make a big RPG with all of its franchises included.



I personally prefer Subspace a tad more for its story and platforming gameplay. However, I REALLY enjoyed World of Light, especially the second half. I love that they're both very different, which makes them special in their own ways.

For me, there's certain things one does better than the other. For instance, Subspace had a much better story, and the character interactions were the best! However, many of Subspace's worlds felt bland and uninspired, while World of Light has a lot more variety, and contains areas that are faithful homages to certain franchises (DK Island, Street Fighter, Castlevania, etc).

One thing's for sure though: both have really cool bosses. The boss fight against Galeem is a personal favorite. Love the fight and the music!



   

Never played Subspace, even though I have Brawl, but loved World of Light. All of it. Pretty much what an adventure mode in a fighting game should be. Also had an epic ending.

Subspace emissary all the way. Loved the cutscenes, platforming and story.

WOL became a chore as it progressed, where I asked myself when it would actually end. Didn't enjoyed it much.



Intel Core i7 8700K | 32 GB DDR 4 PC 3200 | ROG STRIX Z370-F Gaming | Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti 11GB VRAM | Asus PG27AQ gaming on 3840 x 2160 | HTC Vive Pro :3

Reached PC Masterrace level.

Subspace wins for me for the obvious reasons of level, cutscenes and character interaction (kinda) but I would have enjoyed WoL a lot more if there was multiplayer. Hopefully it might still be possible as they patched multiplayer into spirit board

Including the overly convoluted story and shitty underwater music level? :P

Subspace Emissary for me. It was really fun and challenging, I loved the Kirby-style plat-forming and it supported MULTIPLAYER.

I really hope they do patch World of Light in the future so that it supports multiplayer. I mean, how hard can that be?

The thing is though Sakurai correctly said that Subspace was basically a cool experience just one time because of the cutscenes, and what happened was a lot of people just uploaded those cutscenes and people experienced those "epic moments" without ever actually playing the game, without context or more damaging to Brawl, without actually buying the game since the viewer of that cutscene didn't need to buy the video game and pay Nintendo for the most epic part of it.

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/01/sakurai_reiterates_that_therell_be_no_subspace_emissary_style_story_in_super_smash_bros

"Unfortunately, the movie scenes we worked hard to create were uploaded onto the internet. You can only truly wow a player the first time he sees [a cutscene]. I felt if players saw the cutscenes outside of the game, they would no longer serve as rewards for playing the game, so I've decided against having them."

Keep in mind too just how many cutscenes there are in subspace, there's literally hours of movies, that shit takes so much work to render and put together and the end result can all be watched now on youtube, all the viewer misses out on is a 2 minute fight in between the movies.... and ya know, buying a Wii and the game from Nintendo.

Sounds like an excuse to leave an ultimate single-player mode out of Smash Bros Ultimate.
Can you imagine how awesome Subspace Emissary 2 would be with updated design (in a Kirby Superstar style way)? Cooperative play?

I'd have bought Smash Bros Ultimate if it were for another Subspace Emissary mode. My big issue with Smash is that I don't much enjoy it as a competitive multiplayer game... and I know that's the POINT, but I find it gets a bit repetitive (yet, ironically I am a big fan of Tetris 99... but I also generally HATE puzzle games too =D). Subspace Emissary is virtually the only mode of Smash Bros I have put significant time into since the original game on N64. Well... I did put a few hours into fighting Link vs Cloud in the last Smash Bros game, pretty much since it is kind of one of those dream bouts - but that's about all the gameplay I got out of it.... BIG waste of money IMO =D
