>>507586842What a colorful cast of characters Smash used to be.

tldranyway while smash sells like hotcakes, they have to understand that not everyone is going to buy their dlc if there aren't characters they like. Simple as that.

Minecraft is popular in japan, western franchises that are not popular in japan will not get in and rayman’s smash 4 trophy proves this, banjo kazooie was only added so gajins would stop flooding him on twitter

>>507586842This is why I refuse to buy any dlc for this game.

>>507585820That was Sans and Joker

>>507586842I mean, I get that it's bait but including the alts of Robin, Corrin and Byleth is just stupid user.There's maybe only one or two "Western" characters I would even want in Smash and I've already conceded that Crash isn't happening because working with Activision is just something where everybody loses.I'm very happy with an ARMS rep just for music alone, quietly hopeful for Travis and considering I got K.Rool, Simon and Banjo already? Anything from here on out is just gravy.

>>507586842I i feel like Ike, Robin, and MAYBE corrin have enough "design" to them to stand out from being a generic medieval human, they still look anime though

>>507586842well the game is japanese so a majority of the cast being generic JRPG swordsmans is acceptable because japan has literally never made a single game that isn't a anime role playing game

>>507584654based. Fuck western gaming, this burning dumpster of an industry doesn't deserve the dignity of being acknowledged by the east

>>507587595>>507587623Those are Nintendo characters, moronsThe point of OP is that Smash is a game that celebrates Nintendo history and popular adjacent Japanese third party franchises. Yes we got Banjo, but he's in a position no other western rep is in that he was a massive fan request due to his former history as a Nintendo mascot, it's really not the same as putting in shit like Doom Slayer or Master Chief which have nothing to do with the Japanese gaming industry whatsoever

>>507586842Why do they all wear blue and black?

>>507588337See >>507588328 and then post your suicide on Liveleak.

>>507588337Dark Samus was made by Retro Studios.

>>507586842Try again without echoes and alternate costumes

Nintendo already has western indies and Ubisoft shit in the game, alongside Banjo. They also intentionally do not add Japanese exclusive characters most of the time because Sakurai wants characters with worldwide appeal, the FE lords were supposed to be removed from the western version of Melee at one point.Smash doesn't have western characters because Sakurai doesn't speak English. The language barrier is an issue he highlighted in the Banjo stream. He's afraid working with them will be a pain in the ass and he's not familiar with what's popular in the western fandom unless it showed up in the SSB4 character poll.There isn't some specific rule about this, the answer comes down to business

>>507588338>wait until he wins a game>not those ones though they don't countaccept your loss and move on, this is yiff country now

>>507588328>Designed by Retro, 100% western character>the peak of wh*toid creativity is to paintbucket a Japanese character blackLOL

>>507588328They were published by Nintendo. They're Nintendo games, even if they were made by western developers. Smash Bros. is about Nintendo and JP games. So ergo Ridley, K. Rool, Dark Samus, Daisy and even Banjo make sense to include. Something like Doom does not. Understand now?

>>507586842When will Nintendo realize that nobody gives two fucking shits for the cast of FE except weebs? I'm not even shitposting. I'm dead serious here. They really can't accept that the fans don't care for this series?Were they blind to the hate that Lucina got?Were they blind to the hate that Corrin got?Were they blind to the hate that Robin got?Were they blind to the hate that Byleth got?These characters are not interesting and no amount of pushing will save the poor sales. They are so bland that fans have to create personalities for them in fan art. The fucking DQ protagonists in Smash don't even have names and they have more charm and personality to them. If anything, Byleth just made Smash fans even fucking less interested in FE3H.

>>507588626Banjo isnt a Nintendo game and Nintendo commissioned western developers to make all of that shit. Trying to claim Smash is a JP exclusive series is retarded. It's not even Nintendo exclusive with stuff like Persona in it.

>>507587974they're adding cross promotional content from western devs/publishers to their japanese gaming industry celebrationthe actual truth is that they have an innate preference for japanese oriented content, not that there's a hard rule against westernshit. they know the west is the more profitable market so it isn't beyond the realms of possibility for a western-favored third party to be added, just unlikely.

>>507588902I think he meant "subsequent Mario title"

>>507588626Good thing Doom 64 exists and Eternal got a switch port you fucking moron

>>507588768Lucina and Robin didn't get any hate. Back then there were only 2 FE characters in the game and Awakening had been a massive success so people were open for more FE characters. The Fire Emblem fatigue started with Roy coming back and got in full swing with Corrin

>>507588768do weebs even like the fucking series? it sold like shit until just recently and even then it barely pulls the same numbers other series do in the same situations

>>507584654When will Japanese people controlling IPs with huge western appeal (Nintendo, Dragonball, etc.) realise that there is a LOT more people in the rest of the world than there is in Japan?Like look at Dragonball for example. There is probably more dragonball fans in America ALONE compared to Japan. Combine america with all of the english speaking western world, and yet they still prioritise their Japanese audience. Why?Why are japs literally scared of progress and money and actively refuse gaijin help and gaijin focused business?Imagine if Rockstar North prioritised England/Scotland as their primary audience for GTA and fucked off support for America and the rest of the world, just because thats where they're based? You'd say they're retarded

>>507589940>This is what clowns that thought the Pee-U era was good act on a daily basis

>>507588768Because regardless of the hate they get online that shit works. Every FE game has continued to snowball in popularity and the recognition from Smash is absolutely playing into it, otherwise they wouldn't bother.The bigger issue with FE is that either Nintendo needs to stop asking for the main lord/avatar and allow the Smash team to use someone more interesting and diverse, or IS needs to end their reliance on archetypes to diversify the series' portfolio of main characters. If the Smash roster has Camus, Black Knight and Tiki instead of Roy, Lucina and Corrin it wouldn't receive as much hate as it does.

>>507590141>snowballThree Houses has yet to even break 3 million copies(you could multiply that by 5 and still wouldnt be in the top 5 best selling switch games), and Fates barely outsold Awakening despite having multiple versions. The franchise hit its peak and no matter how many poochies they put in smash itll never change.

>>507590408Polygonal N64 Pierce Brosnan is a kino pick

>>507590267There's no way those games are coming over to the west so Ayumi is still in exclusivity hell.I'd be down for it because Part II is actually a great game and probably the most underrated game from Nintendo's 16bit era but let's be real.

>>507590141>CamusI don't know how they would get a character that only fights on horseback to work but you're absolutely right. One of the many problems with Fire Emblem and Smash is that out of all the diverse characters the series has the go with the sword lord every god damn time.

>>507590141>>507590586Seeing FE fand complain about their characters would be like if Pokemon fans said they didnt want Pikachu or Pichu and how great pachirisu or the other electric rats would be instead.

>>507586842>TopWestern Character Designs>BottomJapanese Character “Designs”

>>507590943It's more like if they put in the regional Pikachu clone in literally every game instead. People would rightfully get pissed.Frankly all the Pokemon need to stop too, it and FE get so much extra attention because of their rotating casts it's exhausting. But at least the Pokemon opt for different types and varied character designs so Incineroar still stands out regardless of how much of a shit I give about him.

>>507591105If anything, the image is biased in favor of the Japanese games, since it leaves out the abilities/move sets of the western protagonists, which are far more imaginative than their Japanese counterparts (such as Cate Archer's various gadgets disguised as make-up and female cosmetics items, which is much more interesting than Snake's boring military gear).

>>507591220>TopEastern Character Designs>BottomEastern Character Designs. Fixed it for you.

>>507591359DK's current design is western but yes

>>507586842Awakening was a mistake, seriously of all the Nintendo franchises to not die it's fucking FIRE EMBLEM.

>>507591293i fucking despite inceneroar and his nasty hotdog hands but only shit he's such a staunch difference from any of the existing pokemon and very well any of the other characters. he brings such a different look as well as a wrestler/luchador aesthetic which is completely unheard of throughout smash, i'm not even sure if the nes wrestling game has any spirits.byleth has marth's fucking head.even with the fact that pokemon at least has the sales to justify more characters its fucking bonkers how just about every pokemon save for pichu brings something radically different to the game while every FE character is an androgynous swordboy that sometimes has magic

>>507590868too bad they stopped doing these art crossovers for third parties

>>507592302Now let's see the profits they're making off of Heroes.

>>507591998this is the same bullshit as the "functions" bullshit from marvel, character designs can be their own reason to play a character and if every character looks the same whats even the fucking point of any characters at all. have colored blobs with no fucking designs to them like the original dragon king game was supposed to be. this series is literally founded entirely on being able to play as cool looking nintendo characters, i guarantee you that had they not made the decision to shoehorn mario and the other nintendo fags in and had the 64 game be generics his series would have died on the console and been reduced to that gag off-game they pull out for giggles and shits at a tourney after the actual games are over with.

>>507591749What are you even trying to say? I can't follow your posts.The Fire Emblem fandom is frustrated because Nintendo consistently picks the games lord, a specific class that always has shared mechanics and usually a character design based on Marth out of tradition. Lately they're not always the main character nor are they the most popular, if you look at Heroes' popularity polls for 2020 the house leaders (especially Dmitri, the blonde asshole with an eyepatch and spear) are ahead of Byleth. The one time they were smart and avoided doing it with Chrom they retroactively added him back in anyway. There's no reason for things to be the way.Or are you just shitposting and saying all FE characters are identical and asking for a character is equivalent to wanting more Pikachu clones? I don't even like the series much but come on.

>>507586842Even though i've never touched a FE game in my life, i wouldn't be upset about adding a few FE characters to the roster, they are Nintendo after all.What makes utterly zero sense is the absolute saturation of FE characters to the roster in such a short amount of time.For the longest time the Mario franchise made up a good chunk of the roster, but that's to be expected because Mario is the Nintendo mascot and is part of a well-known franchise. In addition, each mario character at least looks unique in their design as well as their moveset.When i look at all of those FE characters, it's hard for me to imagine that most of them wouldn't have very similar movesets.What would make me want to play as blue-haired anime protag no. 2 vs blue-haired anime protag no. 4?

>>507592931>FE should get the most characters because of muh protagonist rule I made up>WHY THE FUCK SO THEY KEEP PICKING THE PROTAGONISTS AND NOT MY PARTICULAR FAVORITES

>>507592931I hate FE almost as much as I hate myself

>>507590141Is that why their padding the roster with FE characters? to get more people into the series?That just feels disingenuous, especially when you consider a good chunk of early FE games were japan-exclusives, it seems like now that awaking is sem-popular in the west, they're trying to make up for lost time.

I'm just saying if Nintendo insists on adding a newcomer every Smash game for marketing reasons they should at least go by the popularity polls in Heroes or the characters the stories and trailers actually center around rather than the player avatar. Characters like Lyn or Dmitri or Black Knight who actually do have a lot of backing and are main characters in their games, nobody is asking for fucking Dolph or Silque.Stop being autistic.

>>507594056>Is that why their padding the roster with FE characters? to get more people into the series?Seems that way. They are a business.

white people are truly the most insecure human beings on the entire planet.

>>507588768When will autists realize that Nintendo doesn't give two fucking shits for the opinions of some spergs on the internet

>>507595435Fire Emblem has a rotating cast so the main characters need to be reviewed on a game by game basis. It's far more comparable to Pokemon and Zelda's formats, and complaints about the lords being included over main villains or sidekick characters that are way more popular are just as valid as the complaints about having three Links instead of Midna or Ghirahim.Geno is a 24 year old character from a Mario RPG, owned by a third party, who hasn't even had a cameo appearance in around two decades and was a co-star with three other party members. He'd be cool, I love SMRPG, get fucking real. The franchise can't even get Waluigi in Smash and he's a fan favorite in every spinoff since Mario Tennis 64.

>>507591998are you mentally ill?do you think that those characters dont get played just because some spastic tournament players dont pick them?the non competitive audience for smash is several magnitudes bigger than that of the shitty competitive scene. the whole world still sees it as the party game it is and having choices for that is GOOD.

>>507588768Wow its almost as if.... you're the one who's out of touch and your geeky little internet rants and protests mean nothing and FE will continue to sell and be popular with the actual customers. Hoes mad

>>507597264There is literally nothing wrong with Palutena. Or Robin for that matter. It's been five years, but you're still blinded by your hate for the clones their series got. Also Alph is literally in the game, but since he didn't get his own "slot" he apparently doesn't count.

>>507591998>Why are we pretending Smash is anything but "spam forward aerials as the best character for forward aerials"?Reminder that a lot of the top characters in Ultimate flat out can't just throw out Forward Aerials and hope to do good.Peach and Daisy would wear down their kill power if they did, and their Fair is too slow to throw out constantly anyway.Joker's fair is not particularly spammable. ZSS's fair requires precision.Fox can't spam Fair.

>>507598297>>507598508Please stop using Alph and vague mentions of Xenoblade Chronicles X to justify your hatred of anime

>>507598297>And the original trilogy was a rotating cast.That's a stupid line in the sand to draw since Rareware's Donkey Kong series continued into the following generation. The SNES games don't represent the whole series.Donkey Kong is the main star of the series and Diddy Kong is his sidekick. That's objective. Four of the Country games follow this format, 64 has Diddy as the second Kong you unlock, the cartoon did it, the billion spinoffs do it. They're the faces of the DK series, and Cranky is the most recognizable of the NPC Kongs following them due to his meme status and massive number of appearances. It's why Miyamoto told Retro to prioritize only those three characters and had them toss out everyone else when they soft-rebooted it.Dixie was building up to be a tritagonist with DKC3 giving her the same spotlight Diddy Kong got but that was quickly thrown away when she stopped appearing in mainline games for the next 18 years. Rare replaced her with Tiny Kong, Paon reduced her to spinoff fodder like Daisy or Waluigi in Mario, Nintendo scrapped the entire extended Kong family until Tropical Freeze.She'd probably be in Smash if she actually maintained her main character status for the three console generations in-between Land 3 and Tropical Freeze. It's a huge shame she didn't.

>>507599229She's literally had more reason to be in than any FE character besides arguably marth.

The fact that they chose Banjo is just proof that they're willing to take western IP seriously when considering characters. Undertale too.Will the second pack be mostly Japanese famous characters? Yah for sure. But it really isn't that crazy anymore to expect at least one western pick. That's really cool in my opinion.

You only ever see weebs being this anal about where a character comes from. Only thing that matters in this game is how they play. Get over it. Your made up rules were broken long ago.

>>507600168fe fans are weebs and weebs are confirmed subhuman, there's no point in arguing with weeb just go to their house and break their figurines they're too weak to stop you

>>507587993originally Mars (Marth) was supposed to be black haired, however, due to the NES 8-bit color shit, they opted for blue hair as it was easier for it to stand out more than black in game. It ultimately became a preferable hair color due to how it stood out for all the MCs per game, having a different tones of blue (minus Alm's turquoise hair).

>>507600461Anon, Sakurai said that to justify adding Japanese characters that might be obscure to western audiences, not the inverse of western characters obscure in Japan.

>>507599839When did I say she didn't? I've wanted her since fucking Brawl. Metroid and DK both should have had four characters years ago and I'm just glad Ultimate is finally throwing them a bone, it's long overdue. I'm still hopeful for Dixie maybe being in the Fighter Pass.Get over yourself, not everyone you're talking to is a weeb who wants Fire Emblem characters instead of your favorites. Discussing how their character lineup could be more interesting doesn't mean I support even more characters from them, or that I'm even a big fan of the series. Those things aren't mutually exclusive. The rosterfagging and tribalism in Holla Forums Smash threads these days is fucking exhausting.

Lyn and Celica are more deserving than Lucina. For those raging about my suggestion of the former, she's among the most popular female characters in the series and would be unique in that she'ds represent Myrmadons and Bow users, plus having been in several Smash games. The singular Awakening rep should have been Robin, and Fates/Three Houses should have had a Lord like the Ryoma or Marx, or Dimitri and Edelgarde respectively. Fuck the self inserts; Robin gets that point across. Mounted characters like Wyvern Knights should also be there, like Altena.

>>507617102>wtf why are there so many fe characters in smash brothers?

>>507616623The difference is that Mario characters are all different. A better comparison would be if Mario's roster was Mario, Dr. Mario, Luigi, Wario, Waluigi, Gooigi, Shadow Mario, and Wawario from Mario Odyssey 2, releasing next summer. Then people would be rightfully pissed that there's too many damn plumbers. Instead we get Bowser, Peach, Rosalina, Bowser Jr., Piranha Plant, etc. so people don't mind as much. Also helps that Mario is actually a massive series whereas Fire Emblem is relatively small and yet gets the same treatment as Nintendo's biggest franchises

>>507617534If people were just learning about Smash they'd be less surprised to find a bunch of Mario characters than a bunch of Marths.
