It's counter-intuitive to the way I like to play. For me jump is up on D-pad. The game is somewhat stiff to play especially in when you take into account the size of the map and all the platforming that has to be done, up on D-pad will help smooth out the gameplay, even if it's just from an standpoint of intuitiveness.
What I'm hoping for is a seperate configuration that allows for Up on D-pad for jumping.
Edit: I've fallen into the spike tra countless times, please make these changes.
The Up on the D-Pad is used for Square, Triangle, and Circle. As such to attack up. So I'm guessing you don't use Up + Button to attack. I never saw people complaining about X to jump. That would mean it's easy to get used to.
Maybe there will be some configuration in the full game, just not in the beta.
Dont worry about it, SSB bris had up Dpad attacks , even though it was used as jump also, it is all about timing of button press, it really changes nothing for you and suits people like me.
