Smash Ultimate is great but honestly I've been extremely unimpressed with the DLC. The plant is alright, and Terry is good, but the rest of the Fighter Pack 1 was pretty meh, or downright bad (though not necessarily bad as in low tier). Joker is useless until he gets Arsene, at which point he becomes extremely strong. He should be more centered: stronger than he currently is without Arsene and weaker than he currently is with him. Hero is just conceptually bad, his entire kit revolves around RNG, with multiple instant kill moves, extremely powerful base moves like the fireball and lightning slash, and who could forget random crits? Banjo was exciting for the meme factor, but turned out to be awful as a fighter (even with the invincible wonderwing gimmick), and then Byleth had the exact opposite issue: fun gameplay but Nintendo completely soured the mood for her because they decided to release an 8th Fire Emblem character instead of literally anyone else. Banjo is a cool character, but trash to play as, and Byleth is a trash character that is fun to play as (and her final smash is literally just a png behind her? Who thought that was a good idea?). I won't be purchasing the second Fighter Pass until we know all the characters, because I definitely would not have bought the first one if I had known this is how it would turn out.

It actually was Steve from Minecraft.
Hey, I'm not complaining. This shit is awesome. The character looks like they'll be complicated as hell to play, though.

Does anyone even check the forums anymore?


Anyways, the next character is going to be revealed tonight at the Game Awards. I wonder who we'll be getting after Steve... Any ideas?

I think Geno
You mean the new mii costume we just got?

Anyways, Sephiroth from FF7 is the new character for those that don't know. We now have more than 2 Final Fantasy songs in Smash bros.
Trailer:

I've played a few matches with him today, and I think he's very fun. His ledge trapping, edge guarding, and shield breaking are really strong elements of his gameplay. He has a kill confirm off of a shield break at 0, and can generally kill very early. His notable weaknesses are his speed and recovery. Sephiroth isn't too fast, so he can't get much in terms of combos without big braining it. His recovery is good but slow. It can reach surprisingly far past the ledge, which can possibly kill someone if you're facing away from the stage. You do have a good chance of dying for going past the ledge like that, though. I think he'll be ranking decently on the tier lists.

What do you guys think? And by guys I mean the two people who check here.
