Over the long weekend, Nintendo dropped a new Smash Bros Ultimate trailer. An advertisement that is truly the banner artwork come to life. What makes this commercial different than past Nintendo advertising is that this commercial has zero music, but it does have sound effects. Enter the internet and in a matter of hours, there were tons of edits from users adding their own background tunes and here’s the awesome part, like the slogan “Everybody’s here” EVERY SONG WORKS. Take a look at some examples below.
Was this some genius marketing ploy by Nintendo, or just a happy coincidence? Either way, this is just the beginning folks and if you want to see more edits head to Twitter and search #smashbrosultimate to see for yourself. I’m sure this trend will continue at least until Smash Bros Ultimate on Nintendo Switch releases…. or maybe longer. Heck, I’m probably going to make one later myself.
**Thanks to all those creative folks out on Twitter, give their accounts some love.**

We discuss the plagiarism scandal by Filip Miucin over at IGN, the latest Smash Brothers Direct, and the latest patch notes for PUBG on XBOX One. Also, did you know that Sony has sold over 525 million consoles since the PS1 era? We gave our thoughts on that too!
Why is it going to FLow? Nintendo at E3…
Nintendo at E3, Not Again
If you know me, you know I’m a die-hard Nintendo fan. I show my love and support for the big N with a half tattoo sleeve sporting Nintendo’s number one franchise, Mario. This is why it is uncomfortable for me to say this but, E3 2018 is going to be a bust for Nintendo. Nintendo’s big plans are to only Bring Smash Brothers 5 to the E3 show floor. Yes, it worked with Zelda. It also worked with Mario Odyssey. Not with Smash and here’s why.
Save Some Surprises For The Launch Day
With fighting games like Smash 5, it will be very hard to keep somethings a surprise for Nintendo at E3. Especially if it’s all you will be showing off. With Mario and Zelda, you could show little areas and keep people with just that experience. Nintendo will be having a pro-community Smash 5 tournament. How can you make hype with only showing two to three fighters you can’t.
Days Gone By
Gone are the days when we only had four-page spreads in Nintendo Power. Now everything about a game is spoiled as soon as it is announced and leaves nothing to find out on launch day. I guess I’m just old-fashioned in that way. My mother always told me “why buy the cow if you can get the milk for free”
I feel there will be nothing left for us to experience with Smash 5 on launch day after Nintendo E3 this year, and that’s a shame
