The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Falco

first_img Falco Prefers The Air!Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is huge. Not just in terms of hype and importance and sales potential, but just in terms of sheer stuff. The Nintendo Switch mascot fighter features over a hundred stages, nearly a thousand songs, and too many Pokemon and items and Assist Trophies to think of crammed onto a cartridge you can plan on the go or on a TV. When you have as many big franchises as Nintendo, putting them all in one game will make that game is very big boy indeed.But the biggest, most exciting thing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is its mind-blowing, heartwarming roster of playable characters. Fighting games pride themselves not just on the strength of their mechanics but the strength of its fighters, especially in a crossover fighters like this. And Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crushes all rivals by including every single playable character from the across the four previous games in the twenty-year-old series. Include the new combatants and so far we have over 70 fighters to wrap our heads around. We’re excited, but we’re also intimidated. So to get ready for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, every day, character by character, we’re creating the ultimate guide to all of its characters. Today’s fighter: Falco. ‘Super Smash Bros.

A member of Nintendo’s sci-fi animal gang Star Fox. This literal bird is the hotshot pilot of the team, the type of guy who gets into heated arguments with leader Fox McCloud and always threatens to quit, but also always comes back because beneath that fire is deep loyalty and respect for his friends. Classic Top Gun stuff, really.Smash HistoryFalco first appeared as a secret character in Super Smash Bros. Melee. And as a clone of Fox, of one of the best characters in the game, Falco was also extremely good. In some respects he was better, especially with his fast aerial spike. As he appeared in later games he received new changes, like blue colors for his slower, stronger lasers and the ability to kick his reflector. However, for the most part Falco has unfortunately become weaker than Fox over time.What Looks New in Ultimate?Falco doesn’t have any new moves in Ultimate aside from a revamped Arwing Final Smash similar to Fox. And his aesthetics haven’t really changed either aside from some Star Fox Zero touches. The updates are more technical, adjustments to lag and damage output. But Falco is a very technical characters so seemingly small changes could have big impact.Our Hopes?If you want to play a Star Fox character that feels significantly different from Fox, be grateful that Wolf is back in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. But if you just want to mix it up a little bit, try Falco. Our biggest hope is that their similar moves once again make them similarly competitive.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases Dec. 7 for Nintendo Switch. Until we can play more for ourselves, changes we talk about here are mostly speculation.
