I said I was going to keep my expectations in check but I'm hoping hard I'll be able to get my hands on my preorder tomorrow. The same retailer (FNAC in France) started selling RDR2 one day early so...

Not officially but some local stores are selling the game already. Specially in Spain where there's a long weekend this week and some people can get their copies earlier.
more than the game is already in the stores... people are trying to get them to sell the game earlier... but there are still no shops that broke the launch date (at least not openly)

They really want to annoy Limited Edition buyers: Steelbook only for the Standard Edition and then this ugly mess.
RIP Pikachu's Face
Yeah, it sucks. Since Switch release european special editions came without the USK logo, this seems to have changed recently.

Just preloaded the game digitally. The choice was between Japan digital or South Africa digital. Japan would have let me play like 8 hours earlier but no double gold coin promo in Japan, while South Africa has the promo for the fighter pass too, which might be the only sale this pass is getting for some time. No regrets!

Doesn’t Australia get the game earlier? They got the promo too

Wow, 22 pages already...

I'm leaving my mark here. Looking forward to playing with you all. My main character will be Pokemon Trainer, backed up by Toon Link and Lucina.

I have no idea if I will enjoy this game, all the content means nothing if the gameplay doesnt work for me.. Ive only played like 2h of Smash before and it was the Wii one.

Anyone got some tips on a youtube beginner friendly channel so I can do some research in the game itself aswell as how to approach pvp?

Just play Single Player alot, like change it from Classic Mode to World of Light and other Modes to get a feel for some characters. Smash Bros is best learned by just playing. Unlike other fighting games this is a game where you don't have to learn combos or anything like that at first. There are combos and everything, Smash Bros is a positioning and mind game.

I would recommend starting with some easy to grasp characters like Mario, Pikachu and Samus. Don't want videos now or anything like that and just learn the game itself. :)

I missed the talk about the challenger approaching screen.

Sorry but even Melee is no match for Capcom vs SNK 2 or Fist of the North Star.


Regular edition it is.
Yeah, despite some people now claiming their limited edition doesn't have a USK logo I just can't risk it, cancelled my pre-order and went for the regular one.
Well that....sucks wtf !?

Will this be for everywhere in Europe or perhaps only in Spain ?
No idea, hopefully that's just the Germany edition somehow. Some people in Spanish forums are claiming their limited edition has no USK.

Surely the small shops will sell starting tomorrow - Spielegrotte and others. Also where is your Momo avatar?! (I bought the Harem Gold artbook in Japan uff)
It would take me around 3 hours to drive to the city where Spielegrotte is, short of Saturn or MediaMarkt selling it early I'm out of luck :( And Momo temporarily took a vacation for Cleo from Dragalia Lost, she might return!

If anyone finds a copy already at a spanish carrefour, mediamarkt ort fnac (preferebly carrefour or mediamarkt as its usually 10 euros cheaper) please say were and the city you got it. I would love to get today as tomorrow spain starts a "big weekend" of 4 days.

Well that....sucks wtf !?

Everywhere in europe, thats why the fucking german logo is there. They dont want to create special editions for every country, so the slap the german logo to every special edition copy in europe (with english text on the back). Normal editions are published different in each country with only the pegi logo, and the text in the back in ones or 2 languages (for example, in Spain you will have the text in spanish and portuguese).

Would you know about any in Frankfurt am Main?

Hehe, moved here 3 months ago and just know Saturn and Gamestop, doubting they will sell it tomorrow.

I guess now Sakurai will be some character in Death Stranding

you know I didn't think about it much, but online is going to die so hard on Friday.

there is no way Nintendo is actually ready for like 2-3 million players trying to play online at the same time lol

I would love to be wrong, but I doubt the servers have been stress tested anywhere near what they are likely going to get on friday.

Though it also makes me think that perhaps the reason the game doesn't have 8 player online matches was to reduce the stress on the servers, and perhaps once the numbers drop some, late next year or so, they could add 8 player online play.
Have you ever played 4 player online matches? They are very laggy and broken, I genuinely think it would be impossible to play with 8 players online, even if all 8 players are using a wired connection.

Also like all fighting games online is p2p, the servers are only for matchmaking purposes, though I still expect them to be overloaded and broken this weekend

Does anyone have a high res version of the last banner art that includes Ken and Incineroar? I use the version from before it as a 3-screen wallpaper, but can't find the latest version in the same quality. I'm sure it must exist somewhere online...
