(1:10:10) MAILTIME
• Grimace the Minace: “Nintendo has been making a clear effort to build Smash Ultimate around making an accessible game that still caters to and satisfies a competitive audience. Do you think they will carry this forward into directly supporting an eSports scene, or are they simply trying to make the best game they can?”
