Having had a great Sunday afternoon playing Smash Brothers and Mario Kart on the GameCube with the grandkids, I thought it's time I bought this game for my Switch - the grandkids will love it - my now grown up daughter still remembered all the moves etc an kicked everyone's ar$e lol

In terms of controllers, what's good and not so good for this game given we all used the good 'old GameCube controllers the other day?

You can buy GC controllers for the Switch I think.

I’m sure there’s already an easy option for the adventure mode?

Help!!! Haven't played a fighter in years. Have always been put off by the complicated moves list that some fighting games have. Would love to try this game but am worried I'll have the same issues.
How is the control scheme on Super Smash Brothers Ultimate for an absolute n00b?

I would say its not as complex as a street fighter/mortal kombat as fat as moves go. My 7 year old copes OK with it at basic level.

Have a look at this video to see if ts something you want to play:

It's a pretty simple control scheme compared to other fighting games. Special attacks are pulled off with a combination of B or A and a direction. You can also dodge incoming attacks, or grab and throw an opponent if they're close enough. Fighters generally have similar types of attacks assigned to a button combo, for instance Up + B is usually a recovery move that allows you to get back on a platform if you're launched off screen.

It's easy to have fun with this even without learning any move sets for characters. But mastering the game and learning when and how to use attacks an items is really rewarding. There's a huge amount of depth and content on offer, but at its heart this is a great, competitive party game (like Mario Kart) so if you have the chance to play against friends or family I'd highly recommend giving it a go.

What I always liked about smash is it's very easy to grasp but very difficult to master. The real basics are not complicated, there's a button for hitting, a button for specials and then direction plus those buttons vary what you do. The difficulty comes in recovering from damage, knowing your stuff and learning to use extras stuff like guards and throws. Button mashing at first would be fine against low level cpus but wouldn't work on those that know how to play. It's still a blast to play and work up to being a good player. It doesn't have things like complicated combos that most fighters rely on for you to be good at them.
