Conan O’Brien Reviews Super Smash Bros. on Clueless Gamer
Conan O’Brien, a self-proclaimed non-gamer, has taken to reviewing Super Smash Bros. early on his latest Clueless Gamer segment.
It’s no secret that Coco isn’t a huge gamer, but his attempts to play and review video games on his show are pretty hilarious and oftentimes insightful. He recently sat down with an early build of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U from Nintendo and played it with his Clueless Gamer partner and de factor Player Two, Aaron Bleyeart.
As usual, Conan makes funny comments about the game. Being a casual gamer at best, he’s not familiar with very many of the characters on the roster, such as Samus. When he sees Zero Suit Samus, he gets a little more interested and asks if there’s a “Birthday Suit Samus” available. Princess Zelda doesn’t quite catch his fancy the same because of her elfin ears. Apparently anything to do with elves just rubs Conan the wrong way.
The mayhem unfolds as Conan and Aaron duke it out as a wide variety of characters before being joined by two more of the ‘Conan’ crew for four-player madness. They fight on the Skyloft stage from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword with its dynamic backgrounds, adding to the frenzy of the fracas. We see a lot of Assist Trophies, stages and more, but unfortunately no Final Smashes are executed. Still, it’s pretty cool to see Coco play through Smash early.
Watch the action above and look forward to seeing Super Smash Bros. on the 3DS on Oct. 3 and on the Wii U in Holiday 2014.
