KoopaTV's Live Reactions to Mr. Sakurai Presents "Sephiroth"

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Estuans interius ira vehementi estuans interius ira vehementi... Sephiroth. Sephiroth!

There were only very few things that wasn't a snoozefest at The Game Awards 2020 last week, and Sephiroth being the next downloadable content character to be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was at the top of the list of good things. ...It's a very short list, but still, he's at the top.

One week after that, and series director Masahiro Sakurai is back in the studio and wishes to give us probably the best presentation he's ever delivered... at least for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC. Take a watch, and check out our live reactions:



[4:50 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: https://www.twitch.tv/nintendo
Mr. Sakurai Presents "Sephiroth" in 10 minutes. The stream is silent (though the chat is spamming #FreeMelee because they're dumb); I think it'd be really cool if there was waiting music, and it was One-Winged Angel.
[4:53 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I have it playing in another tab, and it makes waiting for this much better.)
[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (...and it's over.)
[4:58 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Still no music on the actual stream.
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: e10+ to T
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: IT BEGINS.
[5:00 PM] HeavyLobster: Back in a studio.
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai has Sephiroth  posters

How long is Sakurai going to have those posters on the wall?


[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MII FIGHTERS
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: START
[5:00 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: INSTEAD OF END
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Barret as Mii Gunner.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Tifa as Mii Brawler.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Aerith as Mii Swordfighter.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (rip "Aeris")
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Chocobo Hat.
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: LOL
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: GENO MII GUNNER
[5:01 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YEEEES
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AHAHAHAHA
[5:02 PM] HeavyLobster: RIP Geno
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sorry @Sooper Sekrit Agent Wendy
[5:02 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Where's Zack Fair?
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai moving to the main topic, Sephiroth.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai deems him the most well-known videogame villain, besides Lord Bowser.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Spoilers the plot to Final Fantasy VII.
[5:03 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Advertises FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE and says he's looking forward to part 2.
[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Opening - Bombing Mission♪
[5:04 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sephiroth is very light and tall.
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: When Sephiroth is in danger, he gets a wing.
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Which buffs his speed and strength, and gives him a third jump.
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SO HE'S LUCARIO WITH A SWORD
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AND  HE GETS SUPER ARMOUR ON HIS SMASHES
[5:05 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SO HE'S LITTLE MAC
[5:06 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: The formula for whether or not his wing appears is based on not just damage, but also stock count.
[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sephiroth's sword is strongest above the middle of his blade for slashes, and at the end for stabs.

RIP Kirby swarm.


[5:07 PM] HeavyLobster: Are we getting more music than just One-Winged Angel?
[5:07 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Yes.
[5:08 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Including Advent Children music.
[5:09 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sephiroth's Up-Smash is terrifyingly huge. Bigger version of Ganondorf's.
[5:10 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SAKURAI GIVING FRAME DATA
[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Forward-air is 13 frames, and back-air is 15 frames.
[5:11 PM] HeavyLobster: Frame data?
[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "We can leave talk of details like this to people who play in tournaments."
[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "I'm just the guy who thought he'd make a fun party game."
[5:11 PM] HeavyLobster: Openly acknowledging the competitive scene.
[5:11 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ENDORSEMENT
[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Also, that frame data is pretty slow.)
[5:12 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ONE-WINGED ANGEL ADVENT CHILDREN PLAYING ON STREAM
[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sephiroth basically stole Hero's B move, but without an MP metre.
[5:13 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And he can't store the charge.
[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: I'm wondering wot happens if you Shield Gigaflare.
[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: You'll probably be stuck in the explosion?
[5:14 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: And then Sephiroth can do something.
[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YOOOO SHADOW FLARE IS AMAZING
[5:15 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: It's like a summonable Gooey Bomb.
[5:16 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai's Up-B is Fire Fox.
[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: With a chargable version.
[5:17 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: ♪ JENOVA
[5:19 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sephiroth's Final Smash is Supernova and blows up a planet. It also grants random status effects.
[5:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Cloud's Final Smash changes if he's using his Advent Children alt costumes.
[5:20 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: But it has the same properties.
[5:21 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai is about to continue spoiling FINAL FANTASY VII, and Sephiroth's stage spoils the game.
[5:22 PM] HeavyLobster: Aerith dies.
[5:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai playing through Sephiroth's Classic Mode and spoiling that, too?
[5:23 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BOSS RUSH
[5:23 PM] HeavyLobster: Sakurai loves his spoilers.
[5:24 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai didn't want to add an actual boss rush mode, so Sephiroth's Classic Mode is Boss Rush.
[5:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Rathalos, Galleom...
[5:25 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MARX
[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai wishes he could've made Marx creepier.
[5:26 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (I forgot Marx was in the game.)
[5:27 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai keeps having Sephiroth turn around and walk away after beating a boss.
[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sephiroth than slayed Dracula.
[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Now it's time for Sephiroth vs. Ganon(dorf).
[5:28 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: We know from GameFAQs character contests how this goes.
[5:29 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Next is Giga Koopa.
[5:29 PM] HeavyLobster: He mentioned Melee.

Sephiroth Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Giga Bowser classic mode boss rush
...I dunno how to feel about this one.


[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: MASTER HAND AND CRAZY HAND
[5:30 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: In Northern Cave, with One-Winged Angel playing.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai really likes saying "Hell's Gate", and completes Classic Mode (which he just blatantly calls Boss Rush mode) with 9.9
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: 9 tracks total, with four new arrangements.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: There are now 11 total, and they also go to Midgar.
[5:32 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: One-Winged  Angel and Advent: One-Winged Angel get to be in.
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai saying getting copyright approval was a big pain.
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: DECEMBER 22
[5:33 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "Two eves before Christmas Eve."
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Sakurai has invented a SEPHIROTH CHALLENGE.
[5:34 PM] HeavyLobster: December 22. A bit later than I was expecting, but still a good Christmas present.
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SPECIAL LIMITED TIME EVENT
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHERE YOU CAN USE SEPHIROTH AND THE STAGE
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: PRIOR TO THE RELEASE DATE?
[5:34 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHAAAT
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: AVAILABLE IN 26 MINUTES
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (if you buy the DLC)
[5:35 PM] HeavyLobster: So it basically releases now if you beat the thing.

They originally wanted to make it so if you lost, you'd have to wait for the 22nd.
...But they cancelled that idea.


[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
[5:35 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: "One last thing..."
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: They're improving how My Music works for Battlefield.
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: YOOOO
[5:36 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SEPHIROTH'S VICTORY
[5:36 PM] HeavyLobster: That's an amazing victory screen.
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: SO
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: UM
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WHEN CAN I BUY SEPHIROTH'S DLC?
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BEST SAKURAI'S PRESENTATION, EASILY.
[5:37 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: (Though he shouldn't have spoiled so many things.)
[5:38 PM] HeavyLobster: Sakurai Directs are great.
[5:39 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: Nintendo UK with what Sephiroth Kirby looks like:


[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: WELL
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: UH
[5:41 PM] Ludwig Von Koopa: BETTER GET THIS ON THE SITE BEFORE SEPHIROTH IS AVAILABLE.

  1. Just bought the pack and unlocked Sephiroth. Beat Very Hard on my first try with Jigglypuff by knocking him off the stage.

    1. You can't do the Sephiroth Challenge with Sephiroth.

      Delete
    2. Easy and Normal, according to my testing, will play regular One-Winged Angel as the music.

      Very Hard does the Advent Children version.

      Delete
  2. Intriguing, how are you finding Sephiroths playstyle now that your actually using him? Hopefully not too over powered. Does it feel "right"(Controls go well together)? I'm still waiting for the day they announce Bandana Waddle Dee.

    1. He's like a boss character. Not overpowered. Struggles against crouching Jigglypuff, but he can juggle pretty well with his giant up-air.

      His attacks are really laggy.

      Delete
  3. I haven't seen the whole thing, but I do like that his up smash is the sort of attack that Marth's up tilt is and vice-versa. I like using Smash attacks, lol. It's called Super SMASH Brothers lol so that's what I like to try to get KOs with.

    1. His Up-Smash is more comparable to Ganondorf's/Ike's.

      I'm annoyed how narrow is up-tilt is.

      Delete
  4. You are finally safe from Geno but I am still not safe from Sora.

    1. I think Sora fans think Sora has no chance.
      Unless there's a third fighters pass...
