Ive seen a lot of people syaing they dont hear “ULTRAAAAAAAAAA!!” but I do every time. dont know whats up, maybe just a bug? I agree with OP i would like it if they redid the stage ultra announcement. Great idea, poor execution
I really don’t think Stage Ultras should be announced any differently than standard Ultras. Inside the fictional story-space of the game, there are no stages. The term “stage” is behind-the-scenes video game jargon for an interactive environment. Hearing the announcer gurgle “Stage Ultra” makes him sound like the nerd sitting next to you, not the disembodied source of malevolent intellect he’s supposed to be.
Also, it’s information we don’t need. It’s obvious that a Stage Ultra just occurred. We don’t need a sit-rep, but we want an emotionally resonant sound effect – which is why everyone is crying, “Where’s my ULTRAAAAA?”
