My take on the matter is, simply calling it an 'enhanced port/expansion', or a 'new game' can both be misleading to people who are less familiar with what it actually is, or have certain expectations of what a new Smash traditionally is.
But between people who understand what the game is like, it doesn't matter how we label it. It is what it is.
And it is everything I could have hoped for!
I always said I wanted them to keep every character from Smash 4. But since they don't traditionally do that, I figured chances were slim to none, unless this was Smash 4 Deluxe. But it looks more like Smash 4 Deluxe Turbo Ultra Royal Edition+. It has pretty much everything I'd expect from a traditional new Smash game, minus the fact that they put less focus on new characters and stages, and it seems to use the same engine.
But since all my favorite characters were already in Smash 4, I don't have a problem with that whatsoever. (Zelda, Lucina, Rosalina, Palutena, Marth, Zero Samus, Cloud.)
I was mainly worried that Lucina wouldn't return because she's a clone character, and may get replaced for the next new relevant Fire Emblem character instead, and Cloud because he's (probably) an expensive license to renew for a new I.P.
Also, Zelda got a complete makeover, and she looks awesome!Last edited by Hiku - on 12 June 2018
