While there were many video game fans and members of the gaming press at E3 2018, this year’s event was also attended by a number of celebrities. Some of these celebrities participated in events like the Fortnite tournament and the Smash Bros. Celebrity Invitational, with the latter attracting the attention of WWE wrestler Ember Moon.
In an interview with GameSpot, Ember Moon discussed the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch, along with her other top games from the show. In regards to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Moon was impressed. “The new game is phenomenal, it really is,” she said. Moon went on to say that the new Super Smash Bros. takes all the good things about the GameCube and Wii entries and brings them into one game.
While completing in the Smash Bros. Celebrity Invitational, Moon selected Pikachu dressed as a luchadore, which makes sense given her profession. However, with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bringing back every character in series history, she really had her pick from many of the top video game characters ever made, including the likes of Mario, Link, Solid Snake, Cloud Strife, and many more.
Moon went on to compare E3 to Christmas, and fired off her top games of the show. Moon was most impressed by Dying Light 2, The Last of Us: Part 2, Super Mario Party, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Apparently she was particularly impressed with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, as she “loves” the Assassin’s Creed games.
Moon wasn’t the only professional wrestler in attendance at E3 this year. In fact, the show also featured a cross-promotional showdown between WWE’s The New Day (Big E, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods) and New Japan Pro Wrestling’s Bullet Club/The Elite (Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks). With NJPW attempting to build its brand outside of Japan and its Bullet Club merchandise selling like hotcakes, the company is quickly becoming WWE’s main competition, so it was interesting to see New Day’s Xavier Woods and Bullet Club’s Kenny Omega fight it out in Street Fighter 5 – a battle that saw Omega walk away the victor.
In the meantime, both Ember Moon and The New Day should have their plates full tonight, as they will all be involved in Money in the Bank ladder matches at the Allstate Arena in Chicago.
