...it's a new game.

Well...I certainly won't be able to win with Fox in Ultimate the same way I did back in Smash 4 :P

I don't think it really matters. Each iteration since Melee utilized assets from the previous game(s).



Watching the treehouse gameplay really helps to show how different the game is.

I can believe it we just recently had folk constantly saying nintendo is selling cardboard for 80 which anyone with comprehension skills would know is nonsense



It's not a straight port obviously, but certainly closer to an enhanced port than new game as of right now. I mean new game means just that, NEW. I'd say only 10% of the game is stuff we haven't played before. To call it a new game would be like calling MK8D a new game.

I think you saw the smash trailer for the old game instead. That's the only way your opinion makes sense.



It seems like just as much a new game as any other Smash game. Those who call it a port simply want to believe it is for one reason or another. Some are just skeptical due to the vast amount of WiiU ports we have already received this year.

Like everyone else I saw a presentation for 4 Smash games lumped into one.

And yet, a lot of people bought it.

Why would I want it to be a port? I'd love to know this. Keep in mind I was on team new game prior to the reveal.
