You may have heard of Twitch Plays Pokémon, an experiment where Twitch viewers enter controls for live Pokémon games. The formula has been repeated for many games, such as Dark Souls and the Final Fantasy series. Now, one user has set up Twitch Plays Smash Bros Ultimate, where players will take on the World of Light Adventure Mode.
Twitch Plays Smash Bros Ultimate
The new Twitch Plays Super Smash Bros Ultimate experiment was made by Sasori of the GBATemp forums. The user explained that the goal is for viewers to attempt to clear the entire World of Light Story Mode and unlock all the characters.
After a few months of hiatus I’ve finally finished working on my next project! As you can tell from the title it is another Twitch Plays style of channel, as I wanted to see just how well a bunch of random players could work together to complete the World of Light and maybe even unlock all of the Characters in the newest SSB game!
It’s been going on now for about 24 hours, and we’ve only made it a few battles in on the WoL but I’m still amazed to see players adapting and learning how to work around the challenge that a channel of this nature poses onto them to make progress.
Anyone can play and players can also request new control commands to make the game easier. So far, players have reached the Giga Bowser fight in the Molten Fortress area of the game.
You can join in the fun yourself at the Twitch.tv/CommunityController Twitch channel.
