The Mario one looks awesome. Not crazy about the Zelda one, unfortunately.

This is going to sound incredibly petty but I'm amazed by how I can set my expectations low and still be disappointed.

Let's boogie:
Spoiler.
CHARACTERS:
--Ken (obviously a Ryu echo, but with different Finals)
--Incineroar (w/wrestling moves)
...& that's it for bundled fighters, for 74 (76 if you count Red as 3) total roster slots.
--The roster will start with only the OG8; everyone else must be unlocked.
--DLC will happen. Fighter Passes (5-pack of characters, stages, & music, plus a bonus Mii costume) available even before the characters are ready.
--Piranha Plant as limited-time free offer for people who buy the game right away.

STAGES:
Mushroom Kingdom 64 is back, because we live in the best possible timeline. :D

ITEMS:
--New ATs: Nightmare (Kirby), Yuri (Fatal Frame), Black Knight (Fire Emblem), Thwomp, Spring-Man (Arms), Dr. Wily, Flies (Mario Paint), Tiki (Fire Emblem), Vince (Art Academy), Guile, Akira (Virtua Fighter). 59 total.

OTHER:
--Amiibo of Inklings, Ridley, Wolf, & Piranha Plant.
--No more trophies.
--"Spirit" characters who can power-up playables, kinda like equipment/stickers. Classes: Novice, Advanced, Ace, Legend. Unlocked through "Spirit Battles" mode, kinda resembles Event Matches.
--Final Smash Meter when fighting Spirits. Team combinations available.
--Local Wireless (connecting Switches directly) and normal Online modes.
--Online matchmaking based on rule preferences, GSP, & physical distance. For Fun/Glory gone.
--Each character gets own GSP.
--Excessive SDs get you booted from online.
--Elite mode for high-GSP online players.
--Smash Tags are basically belt notches.
--Spectator Mode returns.
--Online 2v2, as long as partners are on same console.
--Battle Arena for customizable online play w/friends.
--Battle Arena links to Switch's mobile app for voice chat.
--Smashworld app allows stat-posting & replay-posting.
--In-game help manuals.
--Century Smash is 100-Man Smash, but with more stage/foe selection.
--All-Star is unlocked right away, includes only the currently-unlocked characters.
--Replay data can be converted to video files in-game, protecting them from update deletion.
--Challenge screen is now huge mess.
--Smash Tags can be cashed in for Gold, which can be cashed in for music/spirits/et cet.
--11 language options: Japanese, English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Dutch, trad. Chinese, simple Chinese, & Korean.
--More voice options for Miis.
--New Mii outfits: Yiga Clan (Zelda), Splatoon 2, Ribbon Girl, Chibi Robo, Ray Mk III, Toy-Con (Labo)
--North American event website.
--Adventure Mode: World of Light - "More about fun than story." Involves what killed Spirit characters (apparently Solaris from Sonic 06 controlling an army of Master Hands?). Navigable map screen. Evil clones. Ability trees. Galleom. Theme song not as good as "Audi Famam Illius".
And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

What's being offered here really isn't all that dissimilar from 4 though...

edit: actually looking at independent footage this looks pretty cool, it's like SMT

Quite happy with the newcomer pool. I would've liked some of AT choices as playable, though.
Spoiler.
Shadow, Isaac, Takamaru, and Ashley are 4 I really would've loved to play as.

Just recorded the character guessing game with my wife, now that the full in-game roster is revealed. I'll probably get the video edited together over Thanksgiving break.

Kinda disappointed with the new characters they selected. Piranha Plant and Isabelle really shouldn't get in before...anyone. Like, there's really no Golden Sun on the roster but they get in? Pretty glad there's DLC so Goku & Geno can not get in and I can be disappointed, and we'll get Red Toad, Blue Toad, Yellow Toad, Goomba, and someone from Fire Emblem or Xenoblade nobody really wants.

It also sucks that Trophies are gone as well, but the Spirits thing seems similar and neat even though it's not a proper replacement. I think the Spirits modes appeals to me because it's seems like a mobile game, I like that kind of design tucked into regular games as bonus modes. Targets stages would be cool too, and stage builder. Kinda concerned about the tweaks to gameplay too so letting us toggle between different versions would be ideal, but I'll reserve judgement. Not exactly the "ultimate" release but it's definitely looking fun.

I'm not sure I'd necessarily call the mechanics "enhanced." For example, I read that you can't move through shielded opponents and that seems like it might be a nuisance.

^You can still pass through opponents who are on your same team, though, which alleviates a lot of worry that people had concerning Doubles Tournaments and Team Matches in general.

Piranha Plant is an obvious troll move from Sakurai and I absolutely love it. Looking forward to destroying people in tournament with my planty boi
