Ice Climbers Stay Cool!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Niet alleen in termen van hype en belang en verkooppotentieel, maar net in termen van sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, almost a thousand songs, and too many Pokémon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.

Super Smash Bros. But the biggest, most exciting thing about Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster or playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the over the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate every day, character by character, we are creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Ice Climbers.

Who Are They?

Ice Climber is a bad game. You could argue standards for platforming were different in 1985 on the NES, but this is the same console with Super Mario Bros . on it. Still, despite starring in a bad game, adorable little Eskimo couple Popo and Nana made a great impression with their strong bond, big hammers, and quirky enemies like a polar bear wearing sunglasses.

Smash History

Making a fighting game cast that just satisfies what fans want is a fool’s sake, because you’ll never satisfy them all. Så du har å holde ting friskt ved å legge til tegn som ingen kunne ha forventet eller bedt om. Resurrecting the Ice Climbers in Super Smash Bros. Melee is something no one coming, and was probably a bigger retro pull than Captain Falcon or Ness.

What Looks New in Ultimate?

The Ice Climbers Skiped Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS, probably because the limited 3DS could not handle what is essentially two characters in one. But they’re back in Ultimate now in HD. Smash games, Ice Climbers can not rely on the power of the broken tactic of “desyncing,” or Få hver karakter til å udføre separate handlinger for combos. Just before, when Nana dies Popo is weaker alone.

Our Hopes?

I always appreciated the sheer bonkers skill it took to pull off truly nasty Ice Climber desync combos. So I’m sad to see the technique go just from a spectator’s perspective. On the plus side their general damage output and freezing powers seem buffed. Mostly I’m just glad the Ice Climbers are back. They are too cool.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation. For more thoughts check out our Smash hands-on as well as cool Switch games to play that are not Smash Bros ., Because those definitely exist.
