I have Smash Physical copy but I’m considering returning it and grabbing the digital copy for convenience.

How did you decide to buy your smash copy?

Also I’m new to smash entirely and just have a few questions hoping a friendly face can answer or give me tips any kind of tips for a new players.

Will I not have as much fun fot not knowing ALL of these nintendo characters. I know the obvious few like Mario, Zelda, Rex ect

For example how do I collect these spirits ?land Speites

Are their special moves ?

Combos?

Is there a “campaign”? A bunch of options in the menu and im not sure which the “campaign” option is.

Also wouldn’t mind making a few new friends to add on switch for smash bros and pokemon lets go drop your switch friend code.

Thank you all !

I personally went physical since I prefer most of my games to be that way, on a rare occasion I will get digital if it is cheaper or if it is more convenient for me. If you ever want to sell Smash or your Switch down the road you will always have that option if you choose physical, but if you go digital you are sort of out of luck there.

I think it helps to recognize characters, but you should be able to learn more about them over time as you play the game. I wouldn't worry about it too much, the majority of the game's cast should be pretty recognizable.

Spirits are collected through playing the World of Light campaign Adventure mode, playing the Spirit Board game mode where you have one shot at collecting the spirit, and you can get them through completing challenges.

I'm not sure what you mean by "special moves" but there are final smashes that you can use by filling up your smash meter or by breaking the smash ball depending on what rule set you are playing by.

Combos are a thing, but there really isn't too much that you would expect from a traditional fighting game like Street Fighter or Tekken. Just try to learn a character and figure out the timing of various moves etc.

I mentioned it above, but there is a campaign, you can access it by going to the Spirits menu and it should be titled "Adventure" if I remember correctly.

@Nez 1. Not knowing who the characters are does not stunt your enjoyment in the game. The only thing that would be a little confusing would be where their moves come from, which bridges into part 3.
2. To collect spirits, either go to either Adventure or Spirits Board, which are both in the Spirits section of the main menu.
3. This depends on what you call special moves. There are two ways to attack: by using the A or B buttons. By tilting the right stick, you can perform powerful versions of A attacks called Smash Attacks. Tilting the left stick and pressing B will give you Up Attacks, Side Attacks, and Down Attacks depending on which direction you tilt the stick. Just pressing B will give you a Neutral Attack. These attacks always directly reference the series the characters are from (such as Mario throwing fireballs). If you find an item called a Smash Ball and hit it until you glow, you can unleash a Final Smash (pretty much a finisher). This can also be performed by turning on the Smash Meter at filling it up.
4. Since this isn’t a traditional fighter, there are no actual combos except for with Ryu and Ken.
5. This game has a single player adventure mode, which can be found in the Spirits section of the menu where it say Adventure. If you see a screen that says World of Light or a cutscene after selecting Adventure, you did this correctly.
As for how I bought the game, I always go physical when I can. I just like being able to hold it in my hand and know that the game will always be mine.
I have my SW FC in my signature (margin under every post), feel free to add me.

I'm probably what many would consider 'new' to Smash. I played it on the n64 and that was about it. Barely played Smash 4.
It doesn't take away not knowing who some of the characters are. I have no idea who most of these Fire Emblem or Animal Crossing characters are. As stated above, a lot of the characters are gaming icons, so at the very least they're recognizable.
It's not like other fighting games with extensive combos and such. In only a day I went from getting my butt kicked in every online match to actually holding my own and winning some. I'd recommend playing around in single player to find a character you can use well or want to use well and focus with that one first as jumping around between characters won't teach you much initially.

I usually buy larger AAA games physical, but for Smash I bought the digital. I bought Mario kart 8 Deluxe physical way back when it was new and I regret not getting it digital to have on the system all the time for the convenience of quick matches without cart swapping. So, I just went for digital with Smash because of my experience (regret) with Mario Kart and I'm really glad I did. People bring up selling, but Smash isn't a play through once and then you're done so sell it kind of game. If you enjoy it, it'll get played for years. And besides, if you want a physical for the shelf, you can always get one second hand or on clearance for a lot cheaper in a couple years time.

@Nez you can't return opened games remember that. You can only trade the game from where you bought it. Only one that buys opened or used games are GameStop but neing new release they won't buy them back yet. The physical versions are just fine so if your having buyers remorse that is not a good reason for what you asking.

@Nez I haven't purchased the same game physically and digitally, so I don't know what happens there. I'm pretty sure @JaxonH has both physical and digital for several games, so maybe he can tell us
