After Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, the live stream continued with gameplay of Pokémon: Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee and Yoshi's Crafted World. During the Yoshi's Crafted World gameplay, Nintendo showed a new mechanic where a Yoshi can ride another Yoshi in co-op, and then those Yoshi's can ride Poochy. It's insanity. You can see it in the screenshot above.

Spirits Join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate As Helpful Boosts To The Main Fighters

During today's Nintendo Direct, Sora Ltd.'s Masuhiro Sakurai revealed Spirits for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The mechanic replaces the collectible trophies from previous games, as Sakurai said the trophies wouldn't work for Ultimate and they were difficult to create.

According to Sakurai, many beloved characters from the game universes represented in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have lost their physical forms. All characters aside from the fighters on the roster have turned into Spirits. This Spirits can be collected by the player and assigned to Spirit slots to help fighters during Smash battles.

Spirits come in several classes. Standard Spirits are called "Novices," stronger Spirits are called "Advanced," even stronger Spirits are called "Aces," and the strongest Spirits in the game are called "Legendary." Each Spirit is also assigned as an Attack, Grab, or Shield type. These types work in a rock-paper-scissors manner where Attack beats Grab, Grab beats Shield, and Shield beats Attack. You'll want to assign a Spirit that has a type advantage over your opponent.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Receives DLC And Season Pass

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Receives DLC And Season Pass

As an announcement during today's Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that the game will be getting DLC, with a season pass also available. This season pass requires players to buy it on faith, however, as the DLC has apparently not even been decided on yet.

Sakurai did clarify that the new characters coming in for download would not be returning characters, which makes sense as the game has the entire series roster so far, and will not be Echo fighters, his term for characters based closely on existing fighters. So every new DLC character will be an actual new character. He also broke down the pricing, which will be $5.99 per character "set" or $24.99 for all five sets.

There will also be Mii outfits and music from unrepresented games, specifically pointing at Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in his example, that will also come along with the season pass. The first DLC character, Piranha Plant, has been announced, but is unique in that he is a free download for early adopters, but will become paid later on.

The Universe Explodes And Everyone Dies In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's World Of Light Campaign

Nintendo closed out its Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct with the World of Light mode. Director Masahiro Sakurai teased that it's different than Brawl's Subspace Emissary mode, but it is the game's single-player campaign.

In a pre-rendered cutscene, Starfox was shown leading the charge on some ambiguous threat, but their heroics didn't matter because everything, and I mean literally everything, blew up. After that we saw Kirby landing on a strange planet, exploration with assorted characters on an overworld map, and a scene of Mario being photocopied with some strange goo to become an evil red-eyed version of himself.

The footage left the mode pretty ambiguous, but it looks like you will be exploring an overworld map fighting evil versions of Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster.

Piranha Plant Joins Super Smash Bros. As A Fighter After Launch

In today's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, director Masahiro Sakurai revealed a free DLC character coming to the game in an update in a few months. The character is the Piranha Plant, the oscillating obstacle from the Super Mario Bros. series, as a fighter in the game.

Piranha Plant moves around in a moving pipe, popping out and using the pipe to do attacks. His final Smash turns Petey Piranha into a Stand-like projection above him.

While Piranha Plant won't be ready for launch, the character will be coming as free DLC after release "in a few months." Digital owners will get him free, while people who buy the game at launch register the game with their Nintendo account. Players who purchase the game later will need to pick up the character as DLC.

A Nine-Foot Lego D.Va Statue Will Be At BlizzCon

Overwatch Lego sets are on the way, and there's a good chance they'll be unveiled during this weekend's BlizzCon. The Lego Group today revealed a massive, nine-foot Lego D.Va statue that will be on display during the convention.

Constructed from 145,276 Lego pieces (43,853 of which are pink), this statue weighs 1,256 pounds, and took 731 hours to build. While this is just a statue, odds are it represents one of the sets fans will be able to purchase, and likely gives us our first-look at D.Va's minifigure design.

Let's hope D.VA and her mech are one of the smaller sets that releases, and she doesn't end up as a part of a larger battle set that will cost a small fortune. Let us know what you hope to see from Overwatch's Lego debut in the comments section below.
