first_imgStay on target ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… Palutena Alights!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: Palutena.center_img Who Are They?Palutena is the benevolent goddess of Kid Icarus, the lady that Pit worships and who gives the angel boy the ability to fly in the first place. Given the franchise’s vague Greek mythology connections, Palutena is actually a version of Athena (Pallas Athena smushed together). Her connection to Pit is a bit like Athena and Kratos in God of War. And her wisdom also allows for plenty of snarky fourth wall-breaking.Smash HistoryWhile Palutena wasn’t playable in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, she did appear with a new redesign alongside Pit. Her green hair, staff, and mirror shield all got an appropriate anime wife makeover. Palutena was part of Pit’s Final Smash and made a cameo in the Subspace Emissary story mode. However, after getting much more fleshed-out in Sakurai’s own Kid Icarus: Uprising, there was finally enough material to make Palutena a complete character in Smash Wii U/3DS.What Looks New in Ultimate?Palutena can shoot giant lasers into the sky and wallop people with angel wings. But in Smash Wii U/3DS she was held back by subpar special moves that encouraged you to take advantage of more varied custom moves, custom moves most ended up ignoring. In Ultimate these specials are better, and in some cases even combined. But best of all her normal attacks just combo into each other with better results.Our Hopes?Surprisingly enough, Palutena has been giving me a fair amount of trouble online. So I can’t say I’m hoping for her to be buffed even more. And her updated guidance dialogue finally lets us know her takes on Snake, Cloud, Bayonetta, and others. Just make a new Kid Icarus game. Maybe let us play as Palutena in that, too.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now. Read our review of this majestic video game pageant.
