Super Smash Bros Ultimate Mr Game & Watch Changes

Mr Game & Watch last appeared in Super Smash Bros SSB4, and also appeared in Melee and Brawl. There have been several changes this time around though, from animation tweaks to an altered Final Smash. We've listed all of the changes below:

  • Octopus Final Smash now grabs enemies and pulls them offscreen
  • Several animations have been tweaked, including jumpsquat, walking, Up smash, and Oil Panic.
  • There's a new forward aerial involving dropping a bomb.
  • Neutral aerial does less damage.
  • Judge 9 appears in slo-mo
  • Down aerial is slower to complete

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Mr Game & Watch Final Smash

Mr Game & Watch uses the same Final Smash as in SSB4. It's called Octopus, and involves summoning a giant octopus that pulls enemies offscreen. The animation is slightly different this time around, especially the pulling characters part. You can see Octopus in action in the trailer embedded above.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Mr Game & Watch Alternate Colors

Mr Game & Watch Alternate Costumes

Mr Game & Watch can be selected in a range of different colors. These include red, light green, purple, blue, light blue, dark green, and white. This is mainly to distinguish between multiple players using the same fighter, though keep in mind that Mr Game & Watch does switch forms with certain attacks.
