So question:

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.

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

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.
>>
>>253026757
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.

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...?"

>My face when Snake is announced
>>
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.

>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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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".

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.

SHULK CONFIRMED

>>253035526
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.
>>
>>253035526
>>253038148
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.

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.

Spoilers here:

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.
