    Amazon has them but ship within 1-2 months, plus from what I can gather they only take one controller at a time. I’ve ordered the genuine Nintendo one but it has the same shipping lead time. It’ll come from the US so it’s another 3 weeks to get here. So, maybe March?

    The other option is to go to eBay and buy one at price-gouge rates, so I might just buy a knock-off one of questionable quality and use it until the genuine one arrives.

    This is before Smash launched, and only a couple weeks of Pokemon... not a bad rebound for Nintendo

    That’s impressive. Can it topple PlayStation 4?

    I doubt it, but I like seeing it try.

    Though, as I say from time-to-time, the Pokemon factor is huge. Once that new standalone title hits in the next 18-24 months, it’ll be game on.

    Smash Ultimate is pretty fun. I disabled directional-up for jump and it seems to help my fighting. I'm currently using Kirby as main but I might be switching over to Meta Knight soon.

    I really like the feature where you can save preset rules/levels. I made a Street Fighter template where they're stamina matches (emulates a power bar with points), lowered gravity, no items, stages with no platforms. You can also enable a power bar that charges for a special attack.

    I want to set up a Pokémon-only ruleset. Pokémon stages, characters and Pokéballs-only. That’s be fun, I just have to unlock everyone first…

    Speaking of unlocking (and character mains) I think I’m having the best success with Yoshi so far. His low powered-but-fast attacks seem to help me get on top of stronger characters. For example, I’ve tried and failed about five times to beat Solid Snake with a range of characters. My old favourite Link, allegedly OP Bayonetta, all-rounder Mario… then I used Yoshi and minced him real quick.

    It led me to think that Snake would be a powerful fighter, but when I gave him a go I hated it! The smash attacks are just too slow for me to get a hang of. Maybe only a true Smash master can play him properly. Yoshi is great fun to play.

    It's dirty and boring but my method of unlocking characters is to Kirby fly and down+B into a brick until they're dead.
