    What are you excited for?

Honestly I'm just excited to own a Smash Bros game for the first time! Switch is the first Nintendo I've ever had. They could have just re-released the WiiU Smash Bros like they did with Mario Kart and I'd have been happy.

    Any great memories with the franchise thus far?

In summers me and some friends used to play 4-player Melee. It's still my favourite brawler to this day, and it will take a lot for Ultimate to match it. My most played character was Jigglypuff, with the ability to (almost) fly and to turn to stone and fall down on enemies as a powerful attack. I rarely won, but I had a lot of fun regardless! :-)

Cheers, the titles thus far make it sound like Switch is what Nintendo's been waiting for to bust out great games all at once - Breath of the Wild to start and SSB Ultimate + 'the' Mario Party on the way (expecting them to be big, at least).

Aww yiss. Looking forward to seeing how Ultimate matches up to Melee. The fact that the Gamecube controllers will be compatible still feels like nostalgia factoring into - though I'd love to attribute it to Melee being a great game overall. Rather than the later controllers being a tad less intuitive. 4 Man brawls are a good time, I have similar memories with my brothers. Heh.

The Jigglypuff has her sleep/rest for down B attack; Kirby turns to stone. ;D

Damn, you're right! I've got the two mixed up. I think it was Kirby I played the most. He could eat his enemies to gain their powers, right?

Yup! He's a funny character to play with friends. His grab/throws can be troll in terms of dive bombing with enemy in hand off the stage.... always gets a smile tho.

I bought a switch this year - but I've never owned a Nintendo system outside of Gameboys so this will be my first Smash experience but damn I'm excited for it.

Oh boy, you're in for a treat :D I recommend finding other Smashers or getting an extra controller or two if you're up for multiplayer. Lugging an old CRT at my place to support my gamecube, need to get another controller for the road.
