I love Bayonetta so damn much – both the character and her two games, which are some of my favorite gaming experiences – and so I was pretty damn happy when they announced that she’d be joining the Super Smash Bros. roster (and you can bet I’ll be getting her amiibo figure as soon as it gets released). I’m not a huge SSB player – I had a lot of fun playing it on Wii U at the weekly game nights I used to host in Tokyo, but hadn’t really touched the game since leaving Japan. This is the first piece of SBB DLC I get, and I ended up playing a couple of hours with her last night, having an absolute blast learning her moves, and trying out all her color combinations (current favorite is short hair Bayonetta with white costume). That’s it, I’m not ever going to play another character in SBB again, I’m set.
Oh, I never posted about getting Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U? Don’t be silly, of course I got it. Of course I’ve been having a blast playing with friends over. Of course the graphics are astoundingly beautiful and colorful. Of course there are more modes than you can shake a stick at. Of course the amiibo stuff is really neat. Of course I’m buying amiibo because they look really nice and I love having them. But you all knew that, of course.
