More censorship, it's one of the Spirits; it's some Xenoblade girl. Did prior SSB games have as much censorship as this does?

Then Monolith added the modified design to XB2 as a bonus costume. Based.

^^ People who don't condone censorship, I reckon. You may be fine having decisions made for you as to what content is suitable for your consumption, but not everyone is. *shrugs*

Here's something pretty cool. There will be exclusive Spirits (Pikachu & Eevee) depending on if you have save data for the Pokemon Let's Go games. I hope they add more Spirits through this method.

(censorship isnt that black-and-white of an issue, you cant just assert that someone condones all censorship because they dont really care how much skin a video game character is showing. its an issue that extends FAR beyond esrb ratings.)

the wait for smash is killing me. like, i've never felt so bored in my life because the only thing i wanna do is play ultimate but i CANT

This is an intense week, between the potential Avengers 4 title reveal & the Ultimate release.
Fortunately, I'll have a reserved copy of Ultimate waiting for me at Target when I get off work Friday.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

I didn't assert that though, I'm sure ML doesn't condone all censorship. In fact, I think he'd oppose religious or political censorship. It's just that he's expressed support for it in video games before (in SSBU itself, no less), so my comment was made within that context only. I suppose I could've made that more clear, but I thought it may be inferred since I brought up a piece of relevant SSB information and that's what we were talking about.

...Anyway... I also can hardly wait for SSBU. I think that's everyone though, it was even ranked as #1 in Famitsu's most wanted list. I feel like it might break some records.

I thought it was just one character, but multiple have been censored. Some female characters I don't know were censored. Here's an article about it. Also, there was Mr. Game & Watch. I'm not sure how much more there is.

I understand why you think that. I don't even know who the characters are, personally, and they aren't even playable. However, I think it was worth noting, which is why I brought it up. I certainly care less about these female designs than Mr. Game & Watch's change though. I only care about the female censorship on principle, but I feel more strongly about Mr. G&W. I just hope there's not more censorship.

Censorship of women sucks.

I'm going to a midnight release for the game. I won't actually be able to play against my friends for like a week though.

I had a eureka moment and downloaded the digital version so I don't have to drive over to a store Friday.

The G&W "censorship", for those who don't know: Altering his side-smash animation not to use the frames replicating an offensive Native American stereotype which was present in the original handheld (but was NOT present in G&W's past SSB appearances using the same attack).

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

So, does everyone have their preferred controllers ready? I got a wireless, Gamecube-esque controller recently. It's much more comfortable to hold than the joycons.
