The September Nintendo Direct unveiled a lot of news about the future of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but perhaps all of that has been overshadowed by the announcement of Undertale’s Sans as a costume.

During a 40-minute Direct, we learned Banjo Kazooie would be available immediately following the broadcast, received confirmation of Terry Bogard, and even found out Nintendo will be adding in even more fighters in the future.

However, many fans found themselves getting caught up on the fact that Sans from Undertale would be making an appearance in the game as a skin for the Mii Fighter.

NintendoBanjo’s debut in Smash Ultimate was hyped up, but not as much as Sans apparently.

That’s right, fans are hyped up for new content that isn’t even a new fighter, but is just a skin instead.

This means he doesn’t have any special moves or anything of the sort, but that hasn’t stopped fans from being extremely pumped for his release. It definitely helps that Undertale is such a beloved title and also available on the Nintendo Switch.

Perhaps a big part of this is because Terry leaked ahead of time and fans already knew about Banjo. Sans caught everyone by surprise.

Just take a look at some of the reactions fans have been having about him. The majority of them are extremely positive, and that’s putting it modestly. Just imagine if he wasn’t just a simple reskin.

You have to admit, it is cool to see a character such as Sans, an indie character, make his way into Smash Ultimate alongside the likes of characters like Solid Snake, Cloud Strife, and Banjo.

At this point, it’s really hard to think of what Nintendo could come up with next to top this.

The Smash reveals have been major surprises so far and we’re sure Nintendo will be able to cook something interesting up.

In the meantime, the next release is Terry Bogard in November, but no date was offered for his debut as of yet.

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel unleashed his signature rage on Smash Online as lag cost him the chance to potentially win a game. 

As one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, xQc garners a huge audience anytime he goes live – and especially when he tries out a new game too.

Some viewers might be there to get his actual take on the game, to see if it’s worth buying themselves if its a new release, but others are there hoping to see him completely lose his mind and lash out at how bad it is, in a way that only he can. 

During his November 27 stream, the former Overwatch League star dove into the world of Smash Online, and while he managed to win a game, he wasn’t exactly overjoyed by the experience.

xQc is never one to shy away from giving his opinion on things.

After a nearly five-minute-long fight, where he was using Cloud against Lucina, the Candian lost it as lag started to hamper the game – preventing him from pulling off moves or avoiding his opponent. 

As he was defeated, xQc let loose on his opponent and the connection. “Congrats man. Dude, I genuinely hope that you spend your entire life getting good at this piece of s**t f**king game, and you go to your local tournament, and you win enough to buy a f**king router, you broke a** p**sy,” he exclaimed. 

xQc then turned his attention onto Smash itself. “I f**king hate this game, it’s so trash – holy s**t. Oh my God, get a router man. I can’t dude, this s**t is f**king trash! Get me out of here dude.”

The streaming star eventually closed the game off, opting to play a few different games before bringing his stream to an end for the day. 

While some fans might hope he goes back to Smash in the future, at least for a game or two, xQc might not be willing to – especially if he comes up against opponents with terrible connections.
