ouch Has the hype died down already?

Smash Bros 4 had a lot of hype, especially at its announcement, with Villager, Wii Fit Trainer and Mega Man getting the limelight. I know that when Mega Man was unveiled, the Internet went NUTS. Like, Google "Mega Man Smash Bros Reaction" and you'll get people breaking chairs in excitement. I was ready to sign my soul over for a copy of the game. But now that it's been a while, a long while, the hype has... sort of mellowed down. Sure, there have been a couple of cool reveals since then, but after all these screenshots being released on Miiverse and that whole tournament thing, I'm so used to the characters and the stages that I feel like the game has already been out for a year.
Is anyone else feeling like this?

Unfortunately I feel the same way. It's only going to get worse once the 3DS version comes out, too.

I think it's more like we are just more weary this time around. Remember the pre-Brawl days? The game was so hyped up it was like the Second Coming. It was only exacerbated by every delay. Then, when we actually got it in our hands, we were disappointed. Not because the game wasn't great, but because the expectation we had created was impossible to meet. I think players this time around are just trying to avoid the game becoming a victim of its own hype like Brawl was.

Because nobody cares about returning characters besides Captain Falcon. Whenever they announce someone completely new the internet goes nuts as always.

Seeing a lot of images and stuff will automatically decrease hype. People will get used to the media coverage and quit caring. When a new character is released, people will react in whatever ways they want.

Yeah, I've lost a bit of hype for it tbh. Palutena brought it up a little bit, but it's gone down again already.

Wow I thought it was just me. TBH I pre ordered the 3DS version, but I'm not one bit excited for it, like I was with my Pokemon X pre order, hell I'm more excited for Pokemon ORAS than Smash. Sad isn't it? I sure hope that this game will blow us outta the water when released.

I mean, we get screenshots almost daily, and lots of people have already played the game. We've seen people play the game. We've read first impressions of people who have played it. Hell, we've even watched a tournament for it! And the game's not even out yet!
I'd like to say "at least I'm not the only one" but it's a sad fact indeed.

Hype will commence the moment we get a release date for the Wii U version. No point in hyping over a game without one of those yo
