Hey everyone, welcome to Learningworks for Kids Game Spotlights! This is a new series where we will be walking through some of your favorite games and talking about how playing them can help you get better at real-world skills!
Today we are talking all about Super Smash BrosUltimate! Initially released in 2018, this fighting game is still extremely popular thanks to its online play feature and new characters, the latest of which are Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade. Super Smash Bros Ultimate is a great way to let off a little steam, show off some cool fighting combos, and play with your favorite Nintendo characters.
There are several different ways to enjoy this game, including the World of Light Mode, a single player game where you collect the spirits of Smash Bros characters by battling their evil puppet versions.
The main attraction of Super Smash Bros is to get in there and fight! The game allows you to play with up to eight people, making the fighting stages incredibly fun but also incredibly chaotic! As a player, you need to use focus to keep track of where you are in relation to your opponents but also keep your cool when you get knocked off a platform or start taking heavy damage.
While playing, you are going to lose at some point. And then again. And again. Being aware of your feelings while playing and keeping your cool can help you stay focused on the game and help you enjoy the game more. By staying calm and focused, you can execute your moves more effectively and watch your opponents fall!
That’s all the time we have for today but be sure to join us for the next Game Spotlight at learningworksforkids.com!
