Character roster is too bloated. I understand theyre trying to make everyone happy by including all characters; but some are simply unnecessary. And then on the other side of the coin, they only added two new characters, which is underwhelming. Im honestly shocked that there arent at least 2 ARMS fighters added. They also had a pretty good sized pool of other recent games to pull characters from.
And I guess Im the only one who kinda doesnt like the fact that Ridley is playable character.
The same leaks that showed Ridley as a character also showed Simon Belmont, which I'm kind of happy about. Really good ways to incorporate his stuff into a smash moveset. As has been stated, I reaallly doubt this is the final cast for the game, my personal guess is at least 5 more fighters, maybe more like they did with smash 4 DLC.
The number one issue I see right know is knockback. Seems weirdly forced to have the knockback start so fast and then hit a certain distance before dropping off hard. The different scaling between FFA and 1v1 I'm not a fan of either, and the moves seem like they have really weird trajectories that they send characters in. I'll have to look closer at future gameplay and news but not happy about this part of it so far.
