Let's be real. Most of u only feel that way because of Dexit.


Holy f***, a hype downer killed the hype which no one denied. More at 11.

The hype is certainly less but if it turns out that's just because they're hiding more, that's fine with me. I'd rather have more to discover in-game.

I'm more hyped for this than for pretty much any game in the past 5+ years.

Good restraint on information.
Spoilers not thrown around everywhere.

Leaves plenty to discover in the game, just as it should be and there's still time for some more controlled reveals before release.

But no, anyone whining about it is of the era where Tantrum #1 is tied to not knowing everything about everything instantly before you can move on to being insufferable about something else.

We were shown all of Smash Ultimate before release. Did not hurt hype or the game at all.

That any reasonable person knew was going to come eventually, specifically after sun and moon didn't have the Dex part of the national dex

The claim isn't that that showing as much as they did hurt the hype, the point is that by showing as much as they did they sacrificed in-game discovery for pre-launch hype.

I'm pretty sure discovery/surprise has always been a much bigger part of adventure games/RPGs than fighting games
