Smash Brothers Ultimate: Jedi Shows off Byleth Stream on the 28th

Hey there folks, Jedi here. I plan on streaming to show off Byleth in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate once they’re released on 28th January (PST).

The stream will likely be around Noon, Pacific Standard Time (PST). We’ll be doing their classic mode, along with some random training mode labbing/matches and maybe throw in some online matches as well.

It’ll be on my Twitch at: https://www.twitch.tv/jedisupersonicsf/

Hope to see you there! Maybe we could even do a fun little Q&A.

Byleth Joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the 5th DLC Fighter!

The inevitable has happened, although perhaps far sooner than we imagined… In today’s Super Smash Bros Ultimate presentation, it was announced that Byleth from Three Houses will be joining as the 5th DLC Fighter, from 29th January 2020 (UTC).

Similar to Robin and Corrin, players can choose to fight as both male and female versions of Byleth. As you’d expect, Byleth fights with their signature Sword of the Creator, but to mix things up (and reduce complaints although good luck with that), they can fight with other hero relics as well.

The Sword of the Creator is Byleth’s default weapon, used for regular attacks. It’s also used during upward inputs, such as Byleth’s Up Smash, which launches foes into the air, and Up Special, which reels in foes and can be used to grab onto edges.

For sideways inputs, Byleth wields Dimitri’s Areadbhar instead. Because it’s a lance, it has a longer reach than the Sword of the Creator. This long range extends to the Side Smash attack, which can also be angled. However, its damage is concentrated on its tip.

Downward inputs cause Byleth to wield Edelgard’s Aymr. This mighty axe has a meteor effect when used during a Down Air attack. But to really appreciate its power, you need only witness its Down Special, which charges a devastating blow with a brief moment of super armour.

Lastly, Byleth will borrow Claude’s Failnaught for some of their neutral moves. During their Neutral Air attack, Byleth will spin around using the bow. For their Neutral Special, they will obviously fire an arrow. But this can also be charged up into a powerful beam attack.

The Game Awards: Three Houses leads Player’s Voice at voting close. Watch the ceremony tonight at 8:30p EST

In a three-day long voting challenge that’s akin to a popularity contest (as it should be), The Game Awards’ Player’s Voice voting has concluded, and Three Houses has had an exceptionally high turnout of vote in its favor in its three day bout. This turnout helped smack it by a very noticable margin into the #1 slot, and now that voting has concluded, scored are now being tabulated…

Needless to say, considering that the current margins point heavily in Nintendo’s favor over the three day trial, Fire Emblem Three Houses would have to have a downright catastrophic error for a loss of the Player’s Voice category. This would be a stellar compliment to the possibility of Three Houses winning in its category of Best Strategy Game.

While the Game of the Year category includes the other three finalists in the Player’s Voice Day 3 category, Three Houses is absent from the GoTY ballot. Unfortunate, since we can see just how widely appreciated the game is in the public’s eye.

On the other plus side, other neat bits include the wide range of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s representation in the ceremony, and former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé will be a presenter at The Game Awards tonight, and it’s widely suspected that a new Smash Bros character may be announced for Ultimate’s DLC. I’m going to guess that Fire Emblem won’t see any new representation, but it’s not too late to place your bets!

If you’d like to watch the ceremony, the show starts at 8:30p EST (so in about 5 1/2 hours from now), and can be viewed at TheGameAwards.com on their homepage. Other ways to watch can be found on their Watch page.
