    I look forward to finally getting to play as King K. Rool and Ridley. It’s about time they made the Smash Bros roster.

  • Joel Terrell wrote on December 5, 2018 at 6:53 am:

    I am just happy to get the chance to play Snake again. I used to wreck with him in Brawl and the idea that I can finally get back to my top tier supremacy is an attractive one. Wolf is another fighter I’m really excited to play again! I haven’t been this excited for a game launch in years.

  • noodlecade wrote on December 5, 2018 at 11:00 am:

    I’m excited for the return of the Ice Climbers!!! And of course King K Rool 😀

    I love playing as Bowser as he’s one of my favorite characters of all time. Looking forward to the new changes they brought to him. As for new people incineroar is my main person I want to try. Always loved wrestlers and bonus points for it being one of my favorite pokemon.
