Please, Samurai. He even got a 3DS got not that long ago.
Who could ever generate that kind of hype?
>Snake return / Big Boss
>A niche character
>A character from an old 80s Nintendo game that everyone has forgotten
>it's gonna be Chrom instead of Robin
>instead of a moveset based off the many classes he has access to, it'll just be sword, sword, sword
>yfw it's inevitably generic weebshit swordman
>Why hope? We already know it's Shulk.
There is nothing pointing to it being anyone at he moment
>But a Xenoblade dev retweeted the announcement.
Nintendo devs have retweeted announcements they were not involved with many times in the past.
>But his VA is working on new stuff.
That's still not a guarantee its for Smash.
male/female villager exists
a man can hope
mfw mach rider replaces cpt falcon and has same move set
An actually interesting character?
No, we're going to get an anime swordsman.
>Mach Rider and Bayonetta will never be in Smash
Fuck you for reigniting all this worthless hope.
i'd be okay with this for only one reason
%5/1 it's happening%
Realistically, what would happen on /v/ if Ridley were confirmed to be playable?
I'm not a ridley supporter, nor do I care if he's playable or not. I think he's going to be a stage boss. But I really wonder how /v/ would react.
Expect? Shulk, Chrom, or Chorus Kid, but it's probably going to be Shulk.
my dick gets hard just thinking about it
>those spooky whip combos
>up b he gets carried upwards by bats
>all those items like axes, cross ect
A mod changes font size on /v/ to 48
you double nigger
>falcon ever getting cut
samurai ruseman wouldn't cut veterans right?...right?!
>K.Rool will never be in Smash
>Chibi-Robo will never be in Smash

I bet you thought that was clever as shit when you typed it on your windows 95 huh, faggot?
Ridley has been a talking point since Melee, and has been a source of arguments since Japan Time. If Ridley was confirmed playable /v/ would literally be /v/ - Ridley for 12 hours straight.
Well, they'd definitely be aware of the Gematsu leak by now. If it's true, it would definitely be in their best interests to announce a character who isn't on it, especially considering that so many people seem a little turned off by the kinda boring safe bet characters that were the E3 reveals as well as Shulk and Chrom. I hope it's something we're not expecting and not just fucking swordo number 6.
>Well, they'd definitely be aware of the Gematsu leak by now. If it's true, it would definitely be in their best interests to announce a character who isn't on it,
They could've done that at E3 and instead announced 3 characters who were.
The reason they don't is because they don't have someone who isn't on it to reveal
I know it isn't going to happen, but still.
At least the game will reference all of those things in some way. Brawl was really good about having a ton of Nintendo references from small shit to stuff as important as ATs and Stages.
With Sakurai you just have to realize that every cloud has a silver lining.
What I meant is that Sakurai tries to cater to both new and old fans, which is fair.
It sucks for the older fans because they have favorite characters like K.Rool and Mach Rider that they've wanted to be playable for a long time.
Kids know who he is, he even has the Ghostly Adventures in case they don't. Really though he's less pandering and more a shoe-in because Namco's involved.
Are you implying kids don't love Animal Crossing?
Honestly, the thought of her being playable has crossed my mind before.
She'd be totally out of left field and would be pretty damn interesting.
I could definitely get behind it.
I'm really hoping Nintendoland is at least a stage though.
As someone who didn't buy the weeb-game everyone everyone was in a tantrum about, why should I care about him being in smash. What makes him interesting? I am actually asking.
since something important and championlike is needed perhaps pic related will join smash
His sword is kind of cool I guess.
I liked Xenoblade, but Shulk himself is just a regular old anime-styled protagonist. He's nothing we haven't seen before. That's why I'm opposed to his inclusion.
Yup. There was this arm wrestling arcade game from Nintendo and one of the opponents was that guy. After beating him there was a small minigame of removing his mask and the announcer just goes "BALD BULL...?"
It's not going to be Chrom because we have Ike and Marth, Chrom will probably be a secret character. Not to mention that a third fire emblem rep probably doesn't deserve having a special reveal livestream just for him.
Chorus men and Shulk are the ones left then, two reasons for this, one is that they're new franchise representatives, two Rhythm heaven is very popular in japan, or at least /v/ says it is and /v/ would never lie.
Or it could be an entirely different character that we don't know about, however any other character would probably be secret character material.
One of the Gematsu trio of faggotry
Neutral B is the Gun slot. Which includes
>Basic Gun- A standard blaster shot. Damage at around 12-20%
>V-Laser- Less damage, but fires at a 45 degree angle both upwards and downwards.
>Dragon- High damage and homes in on opponents, but moves at a slower pace
Side-B is the bomb slot.
>Standard Bomb K- A bomb that knocks foes towards the ground. Fires in an Arc
>Burrow Bomb B- A bomb that blasts the foe upward. Can be placed in the ground to trick enemies
>Wave Bomb- A bomb that fires towards the ground, setting off a trail of explosions in the direction the bomb was fired
Up B is the dash attack. In Custom Robo the dash attacks were different based upon the robo chosen, but it's easier to change out the dash attacks instead of basing it off of the leg parts
>Shining Dash- A quick dash that launches the player in the direction they hold the left stick. Can stun foes on the ground for a quick moment. >Grappler Dash- A slower dash that deals more damage with knockback.
>Vanisher Dash- The player disappears for a quick moment in a teleport move that deals very low damage but is hard to hit.
Down B are the Pods. These are pods that can be set up around the field to trap foes.
>Standard Pod- A standard pod that floats in the air. Explodes after time. Can deploy two at a time.
>Spider Pod- A pod that scurries around the stage slowly. Will rush towards a foe if they approach it.
>Ground Freeze Pod- Being hit by this pod will freeze the opponent for a few seconds in place, letting you get in a few hits.
Final Smash is a full barrage of all his main weapons. The Final Smash changes based on what moves are selected.
You know you want it /v/
Every single thread would become Ridleytime for at least 48 hours. The shillquisition threads would be overrun. The Dwarf Fortress threads would be Ridley Fortress. Dark Souls would be Solely Ridley.
Sora would be nice, even if he uses the stupid cards from Chain of Memories.
Thanks for reminding me of the Alien life cycle mode from AvP2 anon. If only the one from 2010 had included it.
Screencap this post. The trailer begins as a reveal for the Wii U version of Warlords of Draenor (coming to all 3 consoles though) - and at the end, the Smash logo pops up. Blizzard's cinematic team lent some help to Nintendo for the trailer. Metzen reprises his role as Thrall.
Holy shit, these characters! Alice & Ape III for Smash!
If it happens it's going to be this faggot and you know it.
CAPTCHA: "judgement hentbru"
this outfit was never relevant, if anything other than classic Simon it's going to be a simplified version of Ayami Kojima's Bishie boy Simon (which i'm down for)
>You know you want it /v/
I'm not denying it. I want it badly.
But it's not happening. He's irrelevant. He and his series were never popular. They're also not old enough to get in by being retro.
>classic mega man is worst mega man
Didn't even have the decency to make it X or EXE. At least they're in the final smash and I can hope for alternate costumes and songs from their games.
It's actually a brilliant strategy. Leaking absolutely terrible characters to the press, so that people are genuinely happy when ANYTHING ELSE is actually getting put into the game.
>all dat psynergy/djinn/summon variety
Shame it'll never happen and we're just getting two more sword users who will probably use their swords of 90% of their attacks
shakethe feeling pic related will shakeup the competition.
Set your expectations much lower than that.
I would hope for Lucina, but I know that won't happen. Ridley would be nice, but everyone's just expecting it to be Shulk. I guess my biggest hope for a Shulk reveal is that Egil or Melia make it in in some form.
>People expecting anything other than Shulk
Yeah, I think it would be him. Assuming it is a Gematsu guy, Chrom is too soon after Shulk/not that hype. Chorus Men don't really appeal to the hardcore, but Shulk's got a lot of love from people.
>yfw it is somehow a worse character than those three
>Shulk's got a lot of love from people
As much as some people like to praise Xenoblade Chronicles,
VGChartzsays it didn't even hit 900K sales on a console that sold as well as the Wii. That's kind of disappointing.
Rhythm Heaven Wii, using the same source, sold almost exactly as well as Xenoblade Chronicles.
>mfw none of the 3 Gemniggers get in
>any other character revealed
>suddenly anything is possible and /v/ can dream again
This needs to happen.
It would never happen, but it would be awesome. His Earthbound form could be his final smash.
Event mode was in Melee and Brawl. What makes you think it won't be in Sm4sh?
Adol but this design of him for no reason.
>implying exe's design was shit
Fuck off, EXE was objectively the best looking Mega Man and the Battle Network series was amazing.
>its like little mac but with a sword
>most interesting character
NOT GONNA HAPPEN
Big Boss/MGS character
Any other third party
it's obviously him
Some other clone
Krystal/another SF character
>mfw it's Ridley
I don't think it will ever happen, but I want it to. The shitstorm here would be godly
>more interesting than anyone
Shit, she'd be even less interesting to play than Chrom. I'd even prefer an unchanged Roy to her.
I don't see her getting in either, but it'd be awful.
Hey, not all FE characters are like the faggots from Awakening.
>yfw Shulk gets a vision with the silhouettes of future newcomers
The beautiful thing is, whether Ridley is playable or not there will definitely be a shitstorm on /v/.
camera pans past a line of silhouettes, the screen goes black again
it's kraid's silhouette filling up the entire screenand he is confirmed and is shown killing stage boss ridley
You know, I think Ike is better, but I gotta respect your taste. All three of those guys are god tier lords. Only one missing there is this beast.
Unfortunately it will be much less if we have to wait for the game to actually ship to determine it. So ultimately Ridley getting confirmed beforehand would be a sudden and massive one. Rather than just people being disappointed amidst the launch chaos.
>implying I was talking about moveset
We have no way of knowing how interesting a character would be to play as until we see them in action. In terms of character, Chrom is the most flat I can think of in recent games I've played, and Robin can't do an awful lot in terms of character due to being a self-insert. Lucina is actually interesting as a character, and the people who want her in want her for a reason.
>Lucina is actually interesting as a character
ur waifu a shit
>chrom and chorus men are the worst possible
>beige rpg protagonist #4027 is okay, I guess
I'd rather have other reps for FE and RH
Robin has better moveset potential, and Marshal/Rhythm Heaven girl represent more of RH
Shulk is a sword wielder that can use magic. Same boat as Isaac, really.
>Mfw I'm a Ridleyfag
>Mfw I've set myself up for disappointment since Melee
> Mfw this will probably be disappointment #3
I can't be alone here.
The Choir Boys are the cutest characters to be put in a video game. Kirby and Yoshi can suck it.
Almost everything from Battle Network had a much more interesting design than counterparts from the original series. I think the only designs that even compete are the ones from the Mega Man X series and just barely.
What makes her interesting? I got tired of her future this, father that, fate that. And when it comes to movesets, even if she isn't a clone, she'll probably end up with a similar style as Metaknight and Marth. At the very least Chrom could be a mid weight sword user instead of another lightweight.
Do not feel bad anon, there are many people who also want alternative reps in the game, take for example the custom robo people, only for them to get teased with an assist trophy.
>mfw it will be some obscure japanese only game character no one has ever heard of
>Awesome looking Ridley fighting Samus right in the intro
>unlock all the characters
>6 clones and 2 japan-only anime prettyboys
At least Brawl made some better choices, but even so.
Look, I could get into a discussion on how I think she actually represented a big step for the series, but I get the impression you'd rather get upset with Awakening's new fans and the waifu shit they brought with them.
So I'll ask right now. Do you actually want a discussion, or are you content to call me a shithead while I call you a shithead and call it a day?
>That one character who will never get in
But I have whole fantasy rosters filled with them.
Yeah we can discuss stuff.
Lucina is a bland character. Very much obsessed with destiny, and has some weird ass future daddy issues. She is also not that significant in the plot. Vanishes for 2 years, joins up, and attempts to kill you. That's it.
There are much more interesting characters in the series that are better written and have more a personality that goes beyond "girl Marth".
Waifu shit aside, she is a lame character and hardly even feels like a main character. Heck, she can get to 0 HP without Game Over happening. I have no idea how she is a "big step in the series".
Daily Reminder the Gematsu Leaker didn't know about Rosalina, the character revealed right after E3 2013
For all we know it could be someone never mentioned before by him again
>ridley gets in
>there is a never ending shit storm like the storm on Jupiter but some how worse
>it goes on for months
>eventually there's a sticky just for ridley posting
Oh please god Sakuria this happen
I agree that Shulk would probably be at least somewhat interesting from a gameplay perspective, but as a character he has about as much personality as a damp sock. I think all the hype surrounding him has to come from how beloved his game is by it's fanbase; I can't imagine anyone really finds him a refreshing, multi-faceted protagonist.
I'd take Isaac over him in a heartbeat. His use of djinns would make him an incredibly unique fighter, and he has a lot of old-school appeal. I'm uncomfortable with recent characters flooding the roster. Smash is a celebration of Nintendo and it's history, after all, and it seems silly to immortalize a character who only recently got his name to fame. But I digress. I'm probably just still bitter over Pac-Man being the Namco rep.
Panel da pon is 19 years old right now, Ice climbers was 17 years old at the time of melee
Lip deserves a fucking chance to be in. But the thing is pretty fucked now since her main weapon is an item and kirby has her puzzle block form
But don't feel bad. It took me ages to realize Harley Quinn = Harlequin
Guys I had a dream last night that the reveal was Ridley. I remember the trailer had a lot of orange, but I don't remember what actually went on. Actually I didn't even see the trademark smash caption they have for everyone but it was definitely the trailer.
>Ridley Generals on /vg/ never stop
>Becomes the Frozen General of /vg/
HOLY SHIT THE NEW VIDEO IS UP
HYPE HYPE HYPE
>Major gaming icon, considered during Brawl, Namco co-developing the game
>Major gaming icon, highly requested and rumored
>Major gaming icon, got in because Kojima and Sakurai are good friends and Kojima begged for it
>a character from an obscure but well regarded N64 game is comparable to these
I'm glad you're seeing things my way.
Alright, here goes.
Fire Emblem never was a hugely successful series. Before Melee, it never got a ton of sales, and it never made its way out of Japan. I honestly think it could have been close to cancellation, just like it was before Awakening. Melee changed that, but since so few people had actually played the games, everybody just assumed Roy and Marth were the main characters. The series' popularity picked up a bit, enough to be released in the West, but never got very far.
Enter Brawl. Roy is gone, and now we've got Marth and Ike. "Okay," say all the people who don't understand Fire Emblem, "Marth is the main character." And that's about everything that most people new about Fire Emblem. Marth's got popularity, but people care far more about Marth from Super Smash Bros. than Marth from Fire Emblem. An accessory to Smash is all Fire Emblem gets to be. So after a while, with no games starring Marth, sales drop down the shitter. Ike, who's the most popular character in the series among its fans, has his games sell among the worst in the series. Even remaking Marth's games for recognition get the series nowhere.
Enter Awakening. The developers think this might be the last game in the series, so they want to give it everything they've got. The marketing team (which actually has some presence for once) even gets to show off "Marth" as a major plot point. If you think this isn't why people bought the game, I think you're sorely mistaken. And with those sales, the series can finally stand on its own feet for the first time.
For the first act of the game, this character is content to call herself Marth, even though it becomes clear pretty quickly that it's not Marth. But, that's not where people stop playing. They've got the game, it's drawn them in, and this not-Marth is actually a character that's become incredibly popular with the players for whatever reason. Maybe she's not especially interesting, but certainly more so than Chrom and Robin, and she plays a major role in the story, so whatever. Shortly after you discover who she really is, she stops calling herself Marth. There's almost no more mention of Marth throughout the story. And yet, people keep playing because they like what they've got instead.
This is why I find Lucina interesting. For years, the series relied on being an accessory to Marth from Smash. But when Awakening came along, they found a way to use that to get to something else. The marketing draws you in with Marth, but keeps you there for what else you find. Lucina starts off as "Marth," but got her popularity for her own merits. The game even starts in Marth's continent, but then moves on to other areas. People who aren't a fan of her character call her "girl Marth," but as far as I'm concerned, she's a perfect representation of "more than just Marth." In terms of her role in the marketing, her role in the game, and the game as a whole, it all felt to me like Lucina was a big part of how the series is moving past being an accessory to Marth.
>yfw this starts playing
I just want another game with an Elephant Gun in it.
>Noone has said anything about groose yet
Well, im going to say groose.
All together now:
Our Sakauri who art in nintendo
Hollowed be thy game
Thy Smashbros come
and thy will be done
On 3DS as it is in Wii U
Give us this day our daily hype
and forgive our autism
as we also have forgiven /v/'s autists
And lead us not into shitposting
but deliver us from b8ing
You are right in some ways, but here is the thing and the main reason I dislike Lucina. She is more of a plot device than an actual character. While Ike certainly accomplishes things in his games, he is more than just that. He is his own character. Rather than the usual prince or something, he's a man who has his own journey to undertake and the story involves him, rather than just happens around him. Ike watches his father die, Ike works with his comrades, etc. Lucina can't stand on her own that much. Smash Bros is about characters, and Lucina, on her own, is not very interesting. Ike got in despite sales as he was a strong character people liked, and for good reason. Solid writing and a defined personality helps make a guy you remember.
Also nobody bought Awakening because "Marth" was in it. Most people I know who started with it got it because it was made accessible for series newcomers. All of them quickly realized that Lucina was not Marth.
As a character, Lucina is in Roy's position for me. Not a strong MC, and lacks a defining personality and interesting character traits.
Do you get what I'm aiming at here? Lucina just isn't a great character. She is ultimately overshadowed by Chrom, Robin, and even Frederick/Lissa.
The trailer is going to feature Captain Falcon and Samus running into each other is some type of space station place. They are both looking for the same bounty, and they attempt to "cross swords" but C.Falcon is knocked away by their target. It's Ridley, he roars in front of Samus as she takes her offensive position. Ridley has joined the battle. It then features Ridley righting multiple opponents on his new Metroid stage. He's deceptively quick and has a Charizard styled glide. His up B, or at least I think it is, is this huge wing flap off the ground that sends him shooting straight up (I'm told by sources, Dad working on a treehouse out bac, that it can curve in a few directions)
Enjoy your big purple and black space dragon.
Why does anyone honestly think we'll get another third party representative? The only ones we've got so far are all super iconic and I doubt we'd get any more because pretty much all the iconic ones, at least on a per company basis, have already made their appearance.
I'm lying, and it's actually Shulk. My pappy would get in trouble if I actually told you it was Shulk. I really like the fact that he gets to build tree houses Ridley isn't in Smash 4 other than a stage hazard and an alternate form of Ridley as a trophy. Sorry.
I can't wait to taste your anal hemorrhaging.
I haven't given up hope yet.
It's probably Shulk, Chrom, or Robin though.
Here's the thing. The Smash fanbase is too divided. There's not one single character that the majority (>50%) of the people who will buy this game enthusiastically support. No matter who is announced tomorrow, the majority of smash fans are going to be disappointed.
I want to cum all over Dark Monita's LCD screen
That sounds so beautiful.
The leak has kinda ruined it, I still have hope for something bigger
