Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: First Four Minutes Revealed (VIDEO)
The Super Smash Bros. franchise is getting it’s most Ultimate entry yet in only a handful of days, the game sporting a massively inclusive roster and an especially intriguing storyline. While we already caught an initial trailer hyping up the game’s World of Light story mode, an official look at the game’s opening moments have now been revealed. Spoilers for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate follow.
As gamers likely remember, the previous footage showed our beloved heroes zapped away by a mysterious and powerful force, leaving only Kirby to defeat this unknown enemy. The official first four minutes of the game see this same scenario occur, but with the added aspect of a subtitle narration. GameXplain has now provided a look at this newly informative scene, which can be viewed below.
Among the new revelations, we learn that that the winged villain (named Galeem) “sought to create a new world” and did so by consuming the universe with light. The narration reveals that anyone “who fought the light were devoured,” and that the remainder “lost their bodies and became spirits.” We also get confirmation that Kirby was indeed the sole survivor of the event.
The series of evil clones from the trailer were given a few more details as well. Galeem was said to have copied the game’s roster and created an “army of puppet fighters” in their place. Occupied by “captive spirits,” these hollow clones are spread “across the last remaining world.” The narrator also poses the question: “Can anyone free the spirits from Galeem’s control?”
All in all, World of Light looks like a pretty intense way to kick off the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adventure, with seemingly plenty of room for brawling with such a formidable force to face. Kirby’s all-around fighting style and penchant for mimicry makes them a well-suited choice for protagonist, a relief considering how many “puppet fighters” players will likely face throughout the remainder of the game. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release for the Nintendo Switch on December 7th.
What do you think? Does the World of Light story mode look pretty cool, or does it make Super Smash Bros. Ultimate seem too complicated?
