Ray Mk 2

Unironically Geno, he's pretty much the last "never ever" character.


All of the Indie love in Ultimate and Cave Story couldn't even get a mention. It feels wrong.

Crash, Waluigi, Dante, Doomguy or King Hippo should've been in instead of Piranha Plant, Byleth, Min Min or Pyra/Mythra (Byleth and Pyra/Mythra should've been in the next game, not Ultimate; Min Min should've been Spring Man and in the base roster; as much as I like the plant he should not have been a character)

>>637522829I was hoping for a new Zelda character, or more retro picks like Balloon Fighter or Excitebike. Would've been nice to have more echo fighters too. Characters like Alph, Shadow, Knuckles, Octoling, Blood Falcon, etc would make for easy additions and would be nice nods to those series.


The only character I want anymore is Waluigi, but I'm content with having gotten the NEVER EVER trinity in one game, even if they're all bottom tier garbage.

My most wanteds got in. Everyone worth adding is currently in Smash. These threads always fill up with the most random, scraping-the-bottom-of-the-barrel character picks. Nobody has anyone good to suggest anymore.>"I do! I want Bob McGuiness from the NES classic Torque Thunder!"Fuck off.

>>637524061An in an alternate timeline where Snake, Ridley, etc. didn't get in you'd be saying that they weren't worth it and that Geno's inclusion was based so your definition of "bottom of the barrel" means nothing.

After I got Banjo, 2B became my most wanted. Unfortunately she probably has zero chance for Smash 6.

>>637522829Been wanting Krystal since brawl.

>>637522829Honestly surprised Master Chief never showed up in any form/fashion. He’s the last of Microsoft’s trinity of iconic characters, probably THE most iconic. Halo isn’t any more violent than Metal gear or Bayonetta either. An arbiter echo fighter would have been awesome too.

Arle Nadja was my most wanted with Bomberman in 2nd place.Also Anything new from Sonic and Mega Man franchise would been cool, like Knuckles and Roll>>637523531Now i need this too

>>637522829That fucking scumbad Masterhero Soccerguy tricked me twice. First, i thought either Demi-Fiend or Nahobino were gonna show up in the Minecraft one, because of the red eyes in the background, but it was faggot Steve, and then in the Sora one i thought it was gonna be Dark Souls guy, because the fucking Keyblade on fire looked like a Bonfire

>>637522829Banjo got in so i don't really care who gets in anymore. Eggman would have been cool tho

>>637529663Came to say this, Banjobros won

Eggman would have been fun but I’m happy with the roster

I would appreciate any character that isn't a semi-realistically proportioned human


>>637522829If anybody was going to represent Ass Creed, it should've been him. Altair's weird to go for as the costume.

>>637531249Is Sephiroth like Shadow? What i mean is that he is an outclassed character. For example: Knuckles is a better friendly rival, Metal is a better Sonic doppelganger and Gamma is a better redeemed villain.Is the same true for Sephiroth?

i for sure thought a monster hunter rep was gonna make it

>>637531425best female kong

2B, Mai Shiranui, Terra, Chun-Li, Jill Valentine, KOS-MOS, Lip, Adeleine, Dixie Kong, Saki Amamiya, and Ring Fit Trainee should've be playable. Smash needs more female characters and sex appeal. Plus, they need more porn and I'm sure their inclusions will prevent boys from becoming homosexuals.How would you have felt about them?

>>637531249I think Sephiroth was a requirement for Cloud to be back in the base game. Notice all the SE wank and how he has a mode exclusive to him only? Granted, Sora and Hero are different entities altogether in terms of copyright but Sephiroth screams "If you want more FF in Smash, buy this DLC".Again, why is he hogging boss rush all to himself?

>>637523601>>637529532Dixie is a way more important character for being in the Mario Movie, same with Cranky who should be in Smash Toadette was just on a poster lol

>>637524460How would that even work? Maybe they get a bonus when they attack on the beat of the music playing? That would be pretty cool actually.

>>637529532>Chrom who still hangs out in Robin's Final Smash and victory screenA lot of people won’t admit it but I have a feeling the whole Echo Fighter Concept was just an excuse to get Chrom to be playable, there’s evidence that shows he was rushed, when picking up certain items he does the generic Marth idle animation, at one point he had the basic FE victory theme and not the Awakening one and still being in Robin’s Final Smash.

Dante and Doomguy.

>>637522829I wanted a mainline SMT rep (preferably the SMT1 Hero or Aleph), and I would have loved more SNK characters. I also wanted Doomguy but I had a feeling that wasn't happening.

>>637522829girahim obviously

The Sora trailer made me cum and continues to make me cum to this day. A year ago when I first saw the trailer I knew this was going to be a gold mine.The moment when the light faded and I saw the awed fighters turn to plastic, their textures beautifully changing from more natural lighting of skin and fabric to an artificial plastic sheen, it was one of the hottest things I've ever seen in a long time. The shots of Zelda and Palutena especially are my favorites. No more thoughts, no more voice, no more life left. Just an empty, sexy husk of what once was.Imagine if it was a slower burn. They all know that the flame will die out, they dread it so. They try to run, to cower in fear, even the happiest ones fail to keep the facade going. Some start to cry, some start to shiver, as it gets colder. It's so cold, it hurts. The warriors, once fierce and powerful on the battlefield, scream in pain as they start to lose feeling. They try to keep talking with each other, reminding each other that they're OK, but in the end their voices and shouts are muffled and stopped as they think their last thoughts and take their last breaths.They are not alive, and yet they are not dead. Their consciousness has faded, sure, but their bodies are still intact, almost frozen in a state of despair. Mario, the only one left in the group still barely clinging on, tries to walk further and further to the last spark of life. He can feel the numbness hit his legs, his torso, soon it will hit his arms. He grabs onto the flame, his heart still shining in the cold. He uses the strange blade to summon one last Hail Mary - and then he freezes up. Mario, for all intents and purposes, is no more.

>>637536218Steve and Banjo civil war was fun when it was shitpost banter. But then people who actually had strong opinions on the matter got involved and ruined it


Attached: IMG_5782.jpg (557x588, 75.58K)

>>637536237Someone answers the call, though. Someone who has saved countless worlds from the brink of death. He knows this feeling all to well, he, too, had been trapped in a state of perpetual nothingness not too long ago, stuck inside a cold, icy vessel. He knows all too well about the abject terror and horror of it all, so he tries using his Cure spells on them. It doesn't work. He tries to summon whoever to cure them. The most context he gets is seeing Genie look at the state and tell him he can't fix it. Looking upon the final embers, he realizes what he must do. Downing whatever Ethers he has left, he summons the strongest fire spell he can. It works. The flame is lit once more. The warmth seemingly starts to melt away the plastic, as everyone starts to inhale sharply, continuously blinking their eyes. Several of them clutch their heads as the sharp pain of being alive happens, unanimously chanting "What happened?" as is typical with reversals like this.Of course, it could have a typical fairy-tale ending with everyone celebrating and continuing their journeys. But all good things come to an end somehow. Days, months pass. Everyone has moved on. The magic is starting to fade again.Sora starts to worry. He can't let them give up. Everyone uses their powers to re-ignite the flame. It's no use. The cold, dark feeling runs up their feet. Sora tries to run, but his shoes, and his entire form up to his ankles for that matter, are bolted to a golden stand. Everyone starts to panic again, but it only speeds up the process. Trying to find solace in this grim finale, they just stop what they're doing and smile to the ones who always played them, even if their message falls unto deaf ears.They have lost all consciousness, all sense of being. In terms of worth they are all interchangeable. However for the foreseeable future they will remain. Forever trapped in a moment in time. Until the next game, that is.

Byleth is an ad sold as DLC.

>>637549172Didn't they also literally advertise his game's dlc after his smash reveal two?

>>637522829They will add him eventually.

I wanted Monster Hunter, but my copium is that Byleth is functionally similar enough to how I'd expect them to play and is pretty fun

>>637522829I got my most wanted dudes by the end. Especially in regards to first-party reps. At this point, it'a all third-party picks I'd like to see and some real bottom of the barrel first-party scrimblos. For me, it's Porky Minch, King Boo, Bandana Dee, Skull Kid, Doomguy, Dr. Eggman, Firebrand and Rayman.

>>637532249could've been a duo-character like ice climber. final smash, the whole taiko game UI appears and you play the current stage BGM on beat

>>637522829Probably Dixie or Bomberman are the ones I wanted most as far as realistic expectations go, but my more extreme hope was to have more bad guys to be frank. Literally anything so long as its a slew of villains; Gruntilda, Black Shadow, Eggman, DJ Octavio, Porky Minch, Pac-Man's ghost gang, Captain Syrup, Dr. Wily, hell even Dimentio. Just give me a bigger cavalcade of evil to play as.

>>637553379Can't even legaly be sold in Japan.

>>637544805At least Black Knight is based on a class that isn't some damn royal and would actually serve as a villain rep for FE unlike the dozens of needless Marth echos/clones we got last time to satiate Sakurai and Japan's boner for that shitty medieval romance simulator.

>>637553316Bomberman was a fucking assist trophy and costume. That's not the same as having the character playable with an actual moveset.

>>637553627>cute>easy to use>Pyra is Ganon but not as screwed by the gameI don't really see the issue.

>>637553854I get wanting non-Sakurai Kirby characters, but they're not even the first choice for that.

>>637550037>Byleth is bad because he's le advertisementBy that logic Roy is the worst Smash character because he's a Marth clone and a blatant ad. Also pretty much every DLC character was an advert in disguise.

>>63755407690% of everything in Smash is an ad.

>>637535182>Who was the LEAST deserving character that got in?A tie between Banjo and Sora.Banjo was simply never good, and was only wanted at all because Jontron said Nuts & Bolts was bad, causing a huge snowball effect that gave him undeserved popularity.Sora barely counts as vidya. Sure he did debut in a video game, but when you take away the Disney shit that made him stand out, all you're left with is a generic anime swordsman, which is undeniably what Sora is in the context of Smash.>Who was the MOST deserving character that didn't get in?Arle. Even if it rode off the coattails of Tetris, Puyo Puyo has seen a newfound level of popularity thanks to Puyo Puyo Tetris, and due to how those games work, Sakurai could've easily gotten some ideas not just from said series, but maybe Madou Monogatari as well.

>>637553980They aren't from the Kumazaki-verse though, not that that magically makes it better. Sakurai is just a fag.>"But they aren't my beloved Kirby characters!">Says Sakurai as he adds Sora fromm the Kingdom Hearts series into a Nintendo game

>>637554196Dracula is cool, but he would probably be a super annoying zoner.

>>637554318Even in terms of Shimmomura, maybe you should bring up, you know, the villain the trilogy is named after and who had a massive influence on Kirby's lore?

>>637552865>kirby on second placeI refuse to believe this!

>>637547814Its ironic to complain about with how much character representation it has but FE in Smash gets increasingly worse the more you like the pre-Awakening games.Chrom I can give a pass on the basis that he's an easy to make character.Byleth was a horrible character in their home game, is exclusively liked for self insetrt purposes and shares still too many attributes with other FE characters in Smash (middle weight, shitty grab and throws, etc)

>>637522829I wanted the Doomguy as a fighter and was surprised he even got a Mii

>>637535182>Who was the LEAST deserving character that got in?Any of the Fire Emblem characters

>>637554685Is Sonic partially owned by Disney and was made for the sole purpose of having a reason for a crossover between Disney and Final Fantasy, losing half of his identity in the process of getting into Smash because Sakurai rightfully didn't want to put non-vidya shit in Smash prior to his reveal? No. That's all Sora.>>637552865>4. Sora - 1857>39. Banjo & Kazooie - 461>sora and banjo anywhere but tying for dead lastJapan has shit taste.

>>637535182>Least deserving Roy or Corrin and I love FE>Most deserving that didn't get inTough one, maybe Midna? Zelda's character rep feels so much worse than it should be, especially considering the absolute tribe of Ganondorf

I kind of can’t believe Rayman hasn’t been playable in smash by this point

>deleted posts

>>637554516NTA, but why prioritize the villainous sword wielder for Shimomura, of all things? That director's style doesn't exactly focus on the enemy the way Sakurai does, it would kinda miss the point.Summoners are at least pretty rare in Smash, and nobody on the roster really simulates being a life-granting painter.

Lmao.>>637558139I would have loved to have seen Phoenix, yeah sure he's in Mahvel (along with most of the Capcom characters people were wanting in Smash) but I'm bad at that game.In fact I'm really surprised we didn't get any Capcom fighters as DLC this time around. There was a fair bit developed for the main game (Ken, Rathalos boss, Zero/Guile Assist Trophies...) so I was sure we'd get something down the line other than just mii costumes.

>>637555219Also, Sakurai claimed that Corrin was chosen since he wanted a character from a then "recent or upcoming" Nintendo game.>not Xenoblade Chronicles X, a series that could've used momentum and a game that could've provided a decently unique spin on a swordfighter>not Chibi Robo to help a series that was being put on final notice>not Star Fox Zero to allow for a revamped Wolf>not Codename STEAM, an IntSys game that actually had an interesting non-medievalish setting and style>but fucking Fire Emblem, pushing it above every Nintendo series besides Mario and PokémonAnd then Nintendo chimping the fuck out hard over Fire Emblem so soon after, in 2017, just felt like salt in the wound. I'm glad they've at least calmed down with FE now and we got a bit on an Advance Wars Renaissance with Reboot Camp.

>>637573565I remember when Skull Kid, Isaac, King Hippo, Little Mac, Krystal and Samurai Goroh were common picks around 2005/6 and no one bitched or cried about relevancy. At worst it was X has no moveset which got blown out the water quickly with ROB and G&W years before. Takamaru and Lip were also Japan-only picks that made the rounds too. The exact moment Assist Trophies got revealed, at least 80% of the Nintendo pool dried up and this was more explicit with Smash Four.>>637573994Another thing that pisses me off is that stupid invitation Sakurai keeps pushing. It worked for the Villager because of the nature of Animal Crossing and even Isabelle. After that, it became this self-important dick stroking contest where if you don't have that dumb letter, you're not considered important enough to be a fighter in Sakurai's game.Riddle me this: If every important character that supposedly matter is already in, how are they going to continue the series? They'll have to start digging in that assist and spirit pile unless they want to keep on shelling out money for 3rd parties. Less than 100 playable characters and people say they can't do better than that? Come the fuck on.

>>637555219I feel horrible for Zelda fans; BOTW came and they couldve been inspired by it to really change Link's moveset, but all they did was add the deployable bomb, or even a new character from it, but they were too lazy for that

>>637590726I'd say Villager shouldn't really count since the main draw for their inclusion was the novelty of a character from a nonviolent series being a fighter, not that they're a self-insert avatar character.

>>637582642>Reuses assets as far back as Brawl>REUSES SAME FUCKING VICTORY THEMES FROM BRAWL AND BUTCHERS LOTS OF THEMI put it in all caps because that’s very overlooked, I miss when each new Smash game had new victory themes for each series represented, it made them feel special and unique.

>Shitty moveset>No Tails, Knuckles or Shadow or even EggmanIt's sad because a plenty of people bought Brawl solely because Sonic was in it.It was completely a miracle Sonic got in Brawl when 06 killed his image. And even SEGA knew this, that's why Sonic was literally last second for this very reason as they feared Sonic's image would sour the relation with Nintendo only until it was clear as day fans wanted Sonic in Smash so they backpadeled and let Sakurai add him in. Seriously, SEGA is weird to this day so I don't expect anything less from them.Sakurai must hold a grudge against Sonic for making him delay Brawl because damn Sonic's had the same shitty moveset for over a decade

>>637594008Sakurai just thinks Sonic is lame

>>637598473Wow, a Japanese game has anime characters, what bullshit! Seriously, not many people are going to buy a game for Chibi Robo or whatever other non-relevant dead franchise Nintendo has like Golden Sun

>>637537097Same here. My last playthrough a couple months ago was sobering, though The game really peaks from Booster's Tower to when Peach formally joins the party after sneaking out of the castle. It's one of the only parts of the game where the party members feel like a united group and the only time they really interact with each other as a whole. It really loses something by not being like that for as much of the game as possible. The playable characters just don't talk enough. It's also just an effortless autopilot experience. It'll always be my favorite game, though, because it was my first RPG/story-based game in general, first look at a wider Mario world beyond platforming level architecture, and was very formative for me in general. I'd probably say the first two Paper Marios and Superstar Saga are better games now, but they just don't mean quite as much to me.

>>637598473What underrepresented legacy franchises from Nintendo needs fighters?

>>637555089Even if nobody else from FE, Marth is reasonable to get in.

>>637555089It deserves it more than fucking Golden Sun

>>637522829As a shameless weeb there are many characters I'm still hoping for next time>i wanted another xenoblade character, which we got, but it deserves a third one. they could do some interesting stuff with a blade 3 rep>i was hoping for reimu touhou every reveal. it didnt happen but touhou is too legendary to not be in smash>its never happening but i wanted some kind of etrian odyssey representation, i love that series and it was nintendo exclusive for so long>famicom detective club is localized now so theres zero reason for ayumi tachibana to not be in smash as was originally planned>i wanted some kind of visual novel rep, maybe shirou or saber from fate. ace attorney would also be cool>my ultimate never ever is senran kagura but maybe it somehow happened in a better timeline

>>637544805K. Rool was my most wanted since the Melee days. His reveal was probably the happiest a video game has made me since I was a child, and getting Banjo (plus a love letter to Rare in the cleverly rehashed trailer) on top of that truly was like a dream. It just makes it sting all the more that the uncertainty towards Rool's future has come creeping back in as year after year passes with no new Donkey Kong game announcement. He's gotten his own fucking roller coaster and a prominent role in a feature film before a simple fucking video game announcement. There are Lego sets (and, of course, K. Rool is nowhere to be found). DK is getting everything in the world except a video game, and the Kremlings are conspicuously excluded from all of it. It's hard not to believe Smash will be his tomb.

>>637578858>Smash Dojo daysglad to know I'm not the only oldfag. I remember believing Knuckle Joe was playable for about a week until I realized what Assist Trophies meant. good times being a kid

>>637589648>pic related notice how the invitation is stupidly used just for the 3 shitty nintendo 1st parties. while for 3rd parties, its only used for Terry and Joker which actually makes sense with their source material

>>637579776I miss these soulful kino fanarts from back in the day....there's still one I can't find for the life of me that had the Brawl cast celebrating in some cabin while Banjo was staring through the window all sad, being escorted away by Microsoft in a suit.

>>637579776>Geno in the backAnd yet people like to say that he was never asked for before Sakurai said he wanted him

>>637582238that interview mention along with Smash Kingdom and other NG animation parodies is what made people even want Geno to begin with. people often forget a ton about Smash's history with character inclusions and how they're usually influenced at the time.

>>637600446All of those series haven't had a new game in years except Advance Wars, and even that's just a remake. Why would they waste resources on characters from franchises most people won't remember/recognize? StarTropics wasn't even released in Japan.I also find it hilarious you want Golden Sun and Muramase Castle even though they also have anime swordsmen

>>637594189At least Pokémon can be anything as long as they have types while FE are stories about (mostly) humans who (mostly) wield swords because swords are the default heroic weapon.

>>637601001>MUH RELEVANCYJesus shut the fuck up, Smash is supposed celebrating history of games, not a VIP club for the latest shit,

>>637594463Funny you mention dead Franchises when at some point Fire Emblem and Xenoblade were near their deathbed before getting saved by Smash

Bomberman. He's pretty much Pac/Mega Man, but without the cultural/industry impact, but I've been holding out for him probably since the Melee days. I've made peace with the fact that he'll never be playable anyways since he's in a better standing than most wanteds on top of the fact that he's still getting games at all.

>>637601338Adding characters from those franchises you mentioned aren't going to sell people on a new Smash. People would want characters from franchises that are/were relevant when a new Dmash is in development. They want a new Zelda rep, not fucking Sky Skipper

>>637601470Awakening and XB2 saved them, not Smash.Smash has never actually managed to 'save' a series.

>>637586742as much as it pains me to say, Smash has truly turned into a giant promotional ad...so any niche retro picks that aren't prominently in your face today won't be making it in, especially not as sellable standalone dlc.

>>637601730It was always a big ad for Nintendo dude

>>637599047Yeah but if the tables were turned you’d be shitting on FE if it were dead too

>>637602106If it was a dead franchise, yes I wouldn't think adding a fighter from it would make any sense, but that's not the case now is it

>>637599047Japanese game my ass, How the fuck did Smash go from a game about Mario schozzing Kirby in the face to adding weeaboo shit like Corrin and the XB2 coomer girls? It’s even worse when anyone dares express how tired they are of anime swordies because they’re always hit with “UH, IT’S A JAPANESE GAME SWEATY”.Like who the actually cares? Am I supposed to shut up and be a good boy as Daddy Sakurai adds Hajime Tontaro, the half naked twink blade user from the JP only RPG FairyBoobs XIIIIX instead of Crash because Smash happens to be made in the East?It’s a retarded argument, you wouldn’t want me requesting shit like Abby from TLOU2 if Smash was western-created would you? I wonder how different Smash would look if it were developed in the west.

>>637601730I mean Joe made it into MvC3 and that game was just a promotional ad for Mahvel.

>>637594463>>637599047>>637599328>>637599507>”Oh no, someone made a joke about getting rid of the Fire Emblem characters from Smash. That's super rough, to have people out there with different opinions that don't line up with yours! Your FE series is doing great and Nintendo gives a damn about it, you can put up with jokes! Boohoo. Your series gets a lot of things. It shouldn’t be void of criticism.”It’s like when celebrities want you to feel bad for them for their lack of privacy.

>>637602296That's a dumb take. Smash Bros was developed in Japan, and the vast majority of the characters in it come from Japaneae developers. Why wouldn't some of them be animeseque? Should all the character just look like Saturday morning cartoon characters?Also they already have a Western Smash: PSASBR, and it's awful with all of the characters clashing horribly with each other

>>637600045I really want to see what Illumination could do for K.

>>637601939no shit. my point is if it's not some fresh new hip thing or something that's attracting the mainstream over it's niche, then Nintendo wants it in.>>637602453that's the difference: MvC3. of course capcom will pick anything retro from their vast libraries of IPs, they have plenty of icons. it's too bad Nintendo won't do it for their game, since those are 3rd parties.

>>637599328>>637601001I would trade half of the FE roster and about half of the Pokemon roster for characters from smaller franchises. Golden Sun, Rhythm Heaven, Advance Wars, etc. I understand that it makes little sense to remove characters from those two huge franchises, but I wish smaller ones got the chance.

>>637602943Think about it, if no one truly cared then they wouldn’t mention them in this here thread, you don’t speak for others, mate

>>637598941All you need is Phoenix Wright and Dante. They are the ones that matter. Everyone else in capcom besides streetfighter characters are just literal whos.

I am glad ultimate dlc is over so I don’t have to see any more of this dumb autism

>>637522829At one point I could swear Leon or a RE rep would make it.Also NOT having Toad playable at this pont is incredible, I wasn't rooting for these two, mind you, but I did expect them.

>>637601483I'll forever hate the excuse Sakurai made that "it'd be difficult to make a moveset for him". motherfucker, bullshit- you made a moveset for a fucking plant, you're creative as fuck, and Bomberman has tons of potential you could pull off his games.

>>637523042You were ALWAYS delusional.>Side 3rd party character from a 25+ year old spinoff.Did you really think SQUEX, the company that has a grip so tight on their IPs that sometimes they don't even bother for these kind of cameos WITHIN the company would say yes to Geno before shilling any other of their more relevant OCs?

>>637582623Was really shocked to not see Springman in the base game. I really though they would want the switch rep.

>>637603279I feel the same way, even though nothing else they do with him could be as perfect as that short was. A refined design is all I could ask for. He has a great design, but it's really hard to get right, as evidenced by most of his fanart looking horrible despite being made by good artists who understand the character. It's just too tricky to capture in 2D and without texturing. Only Steve Mayles himself and a couple of diehard Japanese fanartists have cracked it. His Ultimate design is pretty much perfect, I'd just make the tail its original length and probably do something about his really awkward legs.

>>637524375It should've been WoL from the start.>Can switch jobs with down B>Goes Warrior, Dragoon , Black Mage>Mostly same moveset but power and tange of moves varies>Dragoon is faster but a lot lighter, good for recovery>Black mage is slow as shit but hits from afar, shit recovery>Warior is average, similar to Hero in terms of melee range but ia heavier.

>>637594706>Still using this argument

>>637588414Honestly i hate this. It's the reason i loved Banjo so much

>>637603923We should have gotten Medusa as a Palutena clone/echo over Dark Pit as a Pit clone/echo.

>>637605429Springman is too plain and basic, it would be like asking for Andy instead of Sami from Advance Wars

>>637601483The Bomberman AT being revealed the day after his creator fucking died was some savage shit.

>>637588126This but unironically. I'm dreading the moment FEfags do a 180 on Alear and pretend to love her just because it heckin owns the Smashies.

>>637606387It's always the shitty anime fags who get these trailers, which makes sense since they have to overcompensate with praise and constant franchise recognition in exchange for no one giving a fuck about them.

>>637533217>Fire Emblem bias>Sakurai-era Kirby bias (just watch, if he's directing Smash 6 then Forgotten Land will amazingly get no in-game content beyond maybe a couple OST rips)>can't design swordfighter movesets anymore, they're samey bullshit and often incredibly braindead>refuses to meaningfully address veterans who are in desperate need of serious moveset overhauls because LITTLE BILLY WILL CRY IF HE DOESN'T GET FALCONDORF AGAIN>characters stuck with Smash-specific references instead of shit that's perfectly usable from their games (e.g. Giga Bowser, Yoshi Stampede, etc)>some animal characters still have generic animal/kaiju sounds instead of their canon voices, which is inconsistentYeah he needs to go, or at least get a co-director.

>>637589648Really didn't like Sora's trailer. Wanted him to be invited given mystery letters is something that happens to him a chunk of times in Kingdom Hearts games. Either that or take advantage of Sora's character and have him befriending the Nintendo characters. The way the trailer ultimately played out was kind of bland. Didn't really play up Sora's characterization the way say K Rool's trailer stayed true to his personality.

>>637589648>first picWere you paying attention during the trailer? The invitation was stolen.

>>637606387This is why the Smash letter ended up being a stupid idea, not only does it lead to the most obnoxious reveal trailers ever but it further cements the idea that Smash is some elitist VIP club where only the best can join and be truly “validated” as a gaming IP, if you’re not playable then you’re worthless.It only worked with Villager because it went along with the theme of Animal Crossing (and then they repeated it with Isabelle) or Min Min and Terry’s case where you the whole-ass cast fighting for a roster spot.

>>637607250Sakurai is basically another Miyamoto but no one ever wants to admit it BECAUSE HES OUR BLESSED LORD AND SAVIOR WHO WORKS SO SO VEWY HARD ;_;We definitely need a new director but I wouldn’t mind Saks staying around to supervise, Smash is still his baby to watch.

>>637599000>>637606092Funny thing is he actually played Sonic Frontiers so maybe Sonic will see some changes next time?

>>637607195>It's always the shitty anime fags who get these trailersIsabelle kinda had that too. Her trailer kept mentioning the Mayor being away at Smash and climaxed into a A-WUHHHHH I'M IN SMAAAAASSH!?!?!?!? letter moment too.

>>637607690You responded to the wrong post.

>>637607443Sakurai is not directing anymore so....they may drop the Smash letter thing.

>>637607769it honestly shouldn't be that hard to direct the next Smash game, with the right talent.>literal toybox fantasy of vidya characters duking it out>represent them faithfully with gameplay gimmicks, attacks, and elements within their movesets + animations>appease fanservice by following step 2 aboveit's literally that simple.just, again, need the right talent to avoid a disaster like psabr.

>>637600460Joker's was kinda good because it wasn't even clear at first that his trailer WAS a Smash thing. Terry's was great because it was done in the style of various SNK sprite art, played off the KoF94 intro, and had minor suspense in making you wonder who'd get it. Christ I'm so glad we didn't get Kyo or Nakoruru as the first SNK rep.
