KoopaTV's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate November Direct Live Reactions

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The most important Direct in history?

Today, Nintendo and Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai are out to dispel with some fictions about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Thus, we have a Direct that has perhaps more riding on it than any other in history. But it was at an awkward... 10 AM Eastern time, which results in some hardships for everyone. But with all the FAKE NEWS out there, and the future of the Nintendo Switch in the balance, this is not a Direct that could be missed. And so the KoopaTV staff reacted to it.

Pay attention to the many sub-plots involved in this log. All of our staff members, plus Discord groupie Ryu (otherwise known as MarioSun90, not to be confused with Ryu the Street Fighter) are here, since we all recognise the importance of this Direct. I'm at work trying to watch the Direct and react to it without getting caught. Rawk fully expects Banjo-Kazooie. Kamek got a flat tire. Wendy doesn't even have a Nintendo Switch. Witch Princess... wants to make a bunch of Ace Attorney references, which I suppose makes her the hero of the log!

Watch the Direct with us, embedded below, and read along our comments!

[10:48 AM] Rawk

[10:48 AM] Witch Princess: I like Lucario

[10:48 AM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: wow that recovery for Lucario

[10:48 AM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: I hope Jigglypuff isn't as derpy as she was in Brawl

[10:49 AM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Incineroar is a tiger Rawk Hawk.

[10:49 AM] Witch Princess: Lol

[10:49 AM] Ryu: Puff never really changed much

[10:49 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Rawk Hawk would have that Side B.

[10:53 AM] Witch Princess: It's so windy I can hear the wind blow against the house

[10:53 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: I love how this Direct kicked off as complete garbage but did nothing but get progressively better.

[10:53 AM] Witch Princess: Aaaaand now it's raining

[10:53 AM] Ryu: Sakurai warned us. He told us he didn't have many characters left, but they didn't listen

[10:53 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: u rite.

[10:54 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: And there are also only 103 stages but people didn't believe me. :shrug:

[10:54 AM] Ryu: The DLC will make up for it.

[10:54 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: I'm okay with Rex being a Mii costume, in all honesty.

[10:54 AM] Witch Princess: I thought there wasn't gonna be any DLC

[10:54 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Because that looked exactly like him.

[10:54 AM] Witch Princess: What was I thinking

[10:54 AM] Witch Princess: Lol

[10:55 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Even Tennis had DLC, so I was pretty convinced this would.

[10:55 AM] Witch Princess: Maybe Wright for DLC?

[10:56 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: I'm so glad there's such a big single-player component.

[10:56 AM] Witch Princess: Yeah that looks good

[10:56 AM] Ryu: I will play the plant

[10:57 AM] Witch Princess: Incnineroar looks op

[10:57 AM] Witch Princess: *Incineroar

[10:59 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Maybe Ace Attorney people are spirits.

[10:59 AM] Ryu: That Bayonetta stage isn't good for vertigo people

[10:59 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Literally anyone can be a spirit, it seems. :open_mouth:

[10:59 AM] Witch Princess: Well if they get in the game somehow I'll be more happy

[11:00 AM] Witch Princess: But yeah, I'm satisfied

[11:01 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: ya

[11:01 AM] Ryu: Is Piranha Plant iconic?(edited)

[11:01 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Yes.

[11:02 AM] Ryu: What if they had Goombella instead?

[11:02 AM] Witch Princess: I guess everyone thought they were trolling at first lol

[11:02 AM] Witch Princess: I mean I thought that

[11:03 AM] Witch Princess: And I guess almost everyone else here

[11:03 AM] Ryu: I thought it was a special mode where you played as minions

[11:04 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: For all we know Rawk Hawk is a Spirit.

[11:04 AM] Witch Princess: Sounds good to me(edited)

[11:04 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: I need to go back and watch all that because I only saw half those dudes.

[11:05 AM] Witch Princess: Shadow Peach is there

[11:05 AM] Witch Princess: So maybe you are there Rawk

[11:05 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Kamek is almost certainly there.

[11:05 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Ludwig and Wendy are already playable.

[11:06 AM] Witch Princess: Too bad Witch Princess isn't in the game

[11:06 AM] Witch Princess: Guess I'll just be a Mii

[11:06 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: lol

[11:06 AM] Ryu: Am I the only one still watching Treehouse? lol

[11:06 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: I am but I'm not paying an extreme amount of attention to it.(edited)

[11:07 AM] Witch Princess: It's on in the background for me

[11:07 AM] Witch Princess: I'm not looking at it either

[11:09 AM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ^

[11:10 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: @Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy Assuming you can acquire a capture card, I'm looking forward to the prospect of you streaming that World of Light mode.

[11:10 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Or the Spirits stuff in general.

[11:11 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: Should be gud.

[11:11 AM] Witch Princess: Yesss

[11:11 AM] Witch Princess: I'd watch

[11:11 AM] Ryu: You get the Rex mii costume if you order the fighter pass(edited)

[11:12 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: This Direct appears to be love-it-or-hate-it big time.

[11:13 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: DK Vine hates it. :pikachu_lips:

[11:13 AM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: ha

[11:14 AM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: it isn't that bad

[11:14 AM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: now I'm done with that

[11:14 AM] Ryu: because they wanted Banjo

[11:14 AM] Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy: lol obviously

[11:14 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: They also wanted Dixie.

[11:14 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: And she's a Spirit.

[11:14 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: so yeah

[11:14 AM] Ryu: I guess the Smash part is over

[11:14 AM] Rawk
Hawk2010: But I care about characters outside of the mere idea that they're playable.

[11:15 AM] Witch Princess: Mia would be a good spirit

[11:15 AM] Witch Princess: Because she is one

[11:15 AM] Witch Princess: Plus it's Ace Attorney!

Post-Direct, KoopaTV is happy to confirm that Wendy has ordered a Nintendo Switch, and Kamek has repaired his flat tires. No one caught Ludwig taking an hour off work watching a Nintendo Direct on a work computer. (Or, if they did, he isn't aware of any consequences.) Both Rawk and Witch Princess are in good spirits... hm, maybe that isn't the right word to use.

This is possibly a better Direct, and a much better log, than the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate one in August.
It was actually the best Reaction Log of 2018.


  1. I think if about five to ten minutes were cut out, it would have been the best direct we have had in a while. The parts where Sakurai talked about the menu as well as the Spirit Mode section seemed to have overstayed their welcome. The first two character reveals were a little anticlimactic, but I am just satisfied knowing that the leak was indeed fake. No one, however, would have ever expected Piranha Plant to become a fighter. Even if no one asked for it, I give Sakurai props for including an unique character with its own distinct move sets instead of just another sword wielder. Lastly, the adventure mode is truly what made the Direct so great. I was not entirely sold on on this game beforehand since I really did not play Smash 4 as much as I would have liked, but this new mode has persuaded me to perhaps give the series another go.

    1. I'm satisfied with the length of the content in the Direct. Spirits needed to have detail put into it since World of Light builds off that, and we all seem to agree that that mode is looking wonderful.

  2. Thankfully no Sora in the base game but I'm not in the clear yet, since it is unknown who the DLC characters are for the Season Pass. I still run the risk of spending my own money on something Sora related. So I need to work extra hard to try to win points here. Thankfully the Breath of the Wild Expansion pass can be purchased on Amazon so it should apply for Smash Ultimate's Season Pass as well. This is in case I win any Amazon points.

    Here is proof for Breath of the Wild:

    1. As I said in the log, I'm not confident in the Season Pass here. That's because I would have been disappointed if there was a Season Pass for Super Smash Bros. 4 and I had bought it.

  3. I was waiting to learn about a story mode, but it sounds like the story mode isn't going to have much story.

    1. "The new Adventure Mode is more about fun than story."

      I mean... it doesn't have to be either/or...!

    2. I know. :(

      People have been saying that his explanation in Japanese made it even clearer that there won't be much story than the translation did:

      Though that person does say it's partly their interpretation.

    3. Guess we'll have to leave it to our imagination and make our own story...!
