The Ultimate Super Smash Bros Character Guide Olimar

first_imgStay on target Olimar Crash Lands!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: Olimar. ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Undertale’s’ Sans Is Basically a Brand New ‘Sma… center_img Who Are They?Captain Olimar is the player character in Pikmin, the whimsical Nintendo take on a real-time strategy game and maybe Nintendo’s most successful attempt a fresh new franchise prior to Splatoon. Obviously the focus in Pikmin is on the elemental little ant plant creatures themselves, directing their hordes to ensure everyone’s survival in the harsh tiny wilderness. But Olimar, a kind of salaryman astronaut, has plenty of character as well.Smash HistoryAs a launch title for Gamecube, Pikmin wasn’t really a thing yet when Melee launched. So Olimar was pretty much a shoe-in for Brawl. Really the mystery was just waiting to see how his Pikmin-management mechanics would transfer over into a fighting game. It worked out though because Olimar has appeared in every Smash Bros. game since. He even now has an alternate costume based on Alph, the player character in Pikmin 3.What Looks New in Ultimate?It turns out when you can summon minions to fight on your behalf in a fighting game, you wind up being a pretty great character. Olimar is fantastic at keeping himself out of the fray, peppering you from afar with Pikmin that set you on fire or electrocute you. In Ultimate he retains his three Pikmin limit, down from six in Brawl, along with his Flying Pikmin recovery. He mostly benefits from the game’s overall speed increase and reduced lag.Our Hopes?Just as Pikmin 3 spent a weirdly long time in limbo, shifting from Wii to Wii U, Pikmin 4 is also a game that apparently exists but we know nothing about. If Pikmin 4 does ever come out though, and presumably brings some new varieties of Pikmin along with it, we’d be curious to see how those creatures could one day augment Olimar’s moveset menagerie.Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now. Read our review of this majestic video game pageant.
