Daily Debate: If You Could Pick Zelda-Inspired Collectible Trophies For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, What Would They Be?
Posted on July 16 2018 by Michaela El-Ters
Super Smash Bros. Melee has a special place in my heart as the first video game I ever played with my brother. With Zelda and Sheik as my main fighters, I remember spending countless hours fighting my way through Adventure Mode, challenging my brother and friends to Tournament matches, and most importantly, collecting trophies. By the time I got around to really playing the game, my brother had already collected nearly all of the trophies, making my attempts to collect them not all that special. but even looking through the trophies and realizing how many unique and creative ideas Nintendo had across their increasing library of games was impressive, and my obsession with collecting trophies continued into the later Smash Bros. games as well.
With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the horizon, the library of options for trophies inspired by the Zelda games is really exciting. A Princess Zelda trophy featuring her Breath of the Wild design would be neat, and seeing other villains like Vaati or Hilda would be a great way to expand on the library of trophies to collect as well. But while seeing more characters is fine and good, I’d love to see the selection of trophies branch out even further and include Zelda-inspired trophies featuring other races or locations in the games. Trophies of the adorable Picori inhabiting a shoe as their home, a Guardian covered in moss, or even Hyrule Castle submerged under the ocean after the Great Flood, would all be really creative options that would make for really fun collectible options. Who or what would you want to see featured as collectible trophies in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Let us know in the comments!
