>>256668012 You didn't expect clones? You thought the flood gates for clone characters was ever closed? Sakurai might not call it a fighting game but he uses a lot of features from them and clone characters has always been one of them.
Sakurai showed trophies from four different series in the Direct.
Pseudo-Palutena from Kid Icarus. Palutena gets confirmed. Tiki from Fire Emblem Awakening. Lucina and Robin get confirmed. That leaves only another Zelda character for Fi and a Metroid character for King Kihunter.
Not to mention almost every new stage he shows off gets a newcomer from that IP.
Find Mii/Pilotwings stage? Miis get confirmed. Punch Out ring? Little Mac gets confirmed. Arena Ferox? Lucina and Robin get confirmed. Palutena's Temple? Palutena gets confirmed. Super Mario Galaxy stage? Rosalina gets confirmed. Pac Man wasn't teased by stage but by items. Pyrosphere?
Sakurai's also made numerous allusions to size and how SSB doesn't stay true to scale.
For some reason I think Lucas and Snake were a one time thing. Pretty sad if that's the case, because it means both of them were included in the roster for what is the worst game in the Smash series (Brawl).
>>256674214 Mother as a series needs a place where it can be remembered, since the franchise is technically finished, not 'dead and buried'. That's more than a lot of Nintendo's franchises can say. We'll be playing Mario and Zelda games 'til we're on our death beds.
Since Itoi doesn't give a fuck about Mother anymore, Smash is the last bastion of hope for the Mother series to not completely fade into obscurity.
>>256666201 Face it every veteran will be in APART from lucas and falco they will get replaced y someone more qualified. and no dont even start your ridleyfag hit he wont be in hes a character that would literally have no character in this game hes just a personality less boss.
I don't see why anyone is worried about characters being dropped when all of the veterans so far are ports from brawl. The only characters to worry about are those that have a reason to be cut like snake, squirtle, and ivysaur
>>256668373 all i see is ZSS butt (which was probably how they found the text in the still, to be perfectly honest)
>>256666771 >final reveal trailer >all's normal and screen fades to black >explosion >"Kept ya waiting, huh?" >cue montage of snake kicking ass, looks like he did in 3DS game to fit cartoon style of Smash 4 >first newcomer revealed in Brawl, and the last for Smash 4 i can only dream
Yes that's a pretty reasonable basis, especially when sakurai said he didn't like cutting characters because people get attached to them. Even in brawl the only characters cut were clones and mewtwo, but it's very likely that sonic was the reason. 4 doesn't really have that problem because the game uses a ton of assets from brawl.
>>256675601 Let me say it again I obviously was not clear, Ridley will not be in as a playable character, It is the the most unplausible outcome, He would be the most alien in the way of playstyle of anyone he is way too big and it would be a waste of a great boss character also a whole move pool would have to be thought up on the spot you ever thought of any of these things.
>>256677050 Well that is true but i don't want ridley, Hell I would rather see him put lanky kong in before i would even consider ridley a good choice. Speaking of that i hope mach rider gets in also king k rool, I have no idea why but i think i want mimi from super paper mario in or dimentio they would just be cool, I would love to see what they would do with a completely flat character not even G&W is completely flat and what they would do with a mounted character.
>>256677786 Excuse me? The stages are all fine, and if anything they're way less gimmicky than melee's. Smash 4's stages look like they've actually had thought put into their design unlike melee's, which had multiple levels that felt like platforms and pits mashed together (see: Subcon, Icicle Mountain, Fourside, Onett, Dreamland)
>>256678292 Gimmicks is fine. Thought put into the stages? Ha. Literally every stage so far is like i said mute city from melee or flat stages that are just flat with random symmetrical platforms. Sure they aren't mashed up platforms and pits but at least that's VARIETY. Something that distinguishes a stage from the others.
Some fags think it'll give NOA an excuse to bring Mother 3 over, despite that it's long since past its time that it originally released and that localizing it on WiiUVC would be foolish. It's also probably because of the sudden increase of Mario, FE, and Pokemon Reps, though this is applied with Star Fox fans, F-Zero fans, and I think Zelda Fans.
Unless you never heard, Sakurai did almost make a Star Fox game before considering resurrecting Kid Icarus. It proabaly means nothing, but since ZSS has her own special and that there isnt a shitty story mode taking up half the games resources, i'm sure everyone will have their own specials.
>>256681617 >Its not even her inclusion. Its the fact her custom set gets a gimmick That's what I was getting at. There's no reason she needs three whole movesets.
>But in Kid Icarus Uprising she bestowed powers Yes, she did. BUT 90% of those aren't even attacks and are essentially power ups. If she's deserving enough for that, we need newcomers for other series like Mario and Kirby just to represent power ups.
What's worse is, as I've said before, there are other characters both already in the game, like Mega Man, and potential newcomers, who would benefit a lot more from this full-moveset customization and would make a lot more sense with it. But of course he gives it to his waifu.
>>256682049 No kidding. Like I said way back, Toon Link and Lucina are just the tip of the iceberg. Fucking DONKEY KONG doesn't have a Final Smash that references his recent games. I guess we're going to be forever reminded that Donkey Konga and Jungle Beat were things.
I could write a novel about why Kerfuffle's final product is looking bleak. It's looking bleak and we barely get any decent information most days. Imagine if they stuck with Brawl's daily Dojo information flood.
I just wish I knew who or what I had to blame for this.
>>256682106 I don't care about the gameplay. That takes a backseat for me when the playable content is all mostly flying in the face of good game design.
While I'm here, might as well bring this up for discussion.
Krystal looks like she would have amazing/unique gameplay with that staff. Imagining all the possible options she could use Plus the staff abilities seen in Adventures/Dinosaur Planet makes me think she could be a swift character with based gameplay.
Personally I didn't want her in before I thought about this, but what does /v/ think an amazing moveset for Krystal would be if she were to be announced?
Pic related. Something that got me thinking. cant remember where I found it though.
>>256682773 Why don't we just paint Ridley blue and give him a staff? Everyone wins.
Kidding. I don't care what character gets in, as long as they're interesting, somewhat unique, and refer back to their origin game(s). Which is why Toon Link fucking pisses me off, because he fails at all of those things. His only redeeming factor is that he's a version of Link that doesn't suck, and I hate that that's why people even wanted him back.
>Lucina got her own spot for being too different >Was stated by Sakurai himself in a recent interview after her and Robins confirmation that she was originally going to be Marths alt skin >Was also stated she plays EXACTLY like Marth, with the difference being she's made for babbies as Marth's somehow hard to use (tip of the blade mechanic isnt applied on her) >Was only chucked in because Sakurai said he loved FE:A >Ironically Chrom didnt get in because Sakurai said he'd be another generic swordfighter despite just confirming Lucina's a babby version of Marth
>>256682773 >but what does /v/ think an amazing moveset for Krystal would be if she were to be announced? B: Uses her staff in the same way Fox does his gun Up+B: Launches into the air in the same way Fox does his up+B Down+B: Uses a reflector Side+B: Dashes across the stage Final Smash: Turns into Kursed and gets into a Landmaster Taunt: Attempts to enjoy a sandwich
clones have different rules. They're basically afterthoughts and leftover dev time meant to pad the roster. The only real argument about clones is who should be cloned and who should be the clone. You can argue chrome should have been the clone.
How would you know, or is your reason she was guaranteed a spot because "HURR DURR POPULAR"? It was already clarified by Sakurai that the characters that are chosen are based on how he sees them play, so despite how fucking popular they are, they may not get in because he may not like how they play.
>>256683992 It wasn't even that I wanted to Chrom, I'm just going off of what Sakurai said. His reason for Chrom not getting in is because he would be a clone, but then added Lucina. I understand she would be in regardless, but you have to admit that it's flawed logic.
>>256682112 >That's what I was getting at. There's no reason she needs three whole movesets.
He just needed a gameplay mechanic for her to represent.
Her being able to swap out and mix and match different powers essentially represents how customizing the powers worked in Uprising. KIU has two forms of arsenal: weapons and powers. Pit already has Uprising weapons build into his moveset, so I think its fitting to base Palutena around the game's power system.
Something to consider with the newcomers this time around: They're not just representing their abilities as a character, they're representing actual gameplay mechanics from the games they come from. Villager is about using tools and putting things into his pocket. Mega Man's entire moveset, design, physics, etc are based on the gameplay and movement of the original MM series. Little Mac has the KO meter taken from the arcade PO!!, whereas doing more damage (and taking damage in Smash's case) increases the meter to do a powerful attack. Rosalina's moveset consists of various mechanics from the Mario Galaxy games (The Luma partner, the Launch Star, the cursor). Stuff like that.
>but but there are tons of characters whose games have equippable powers, why is she so special?!
Mega Man moves and acts like how he does in the original NES games. Mario and Samus doesn't move and act like they do in their original NES games. It's just something he needed to make the character stand out more.
>>256686189 Doc could still get a skin. He is still Mario
Don't bet on a full Daisy change. Just her color scheme.
Yeah, we won't be getting other captains or Mega Mans. Don't know why you'd expect them for the latter since each model has a completely different hitbox.
Honestly I'm 100% okay with the characters not turning into other characters. That would take away from why they chose that character in the first place. Changing him/her like that would be like saying "Well, this character is important to his/her franchise, but it may as well be this character instead" Project M has the same philosophy when approaching alts.
I think color swaps, hat changes, etc. would be more than enough in most cases. If megaman got the other's helmets/colors while keeping his model. If mario got his doc coat. It isn't necessary but it's a nice touch to have, especially for a game like this
>>256683465 Fuck I've been arguing this ever since that interview came out. Goddammit it makes me mad as fuck, this fucking huge contradiction just to include a fucking clone and to justify lazy work. Lucina didn't have to be in, but she also didn't have to be a clone, but that's apparently too much for Sakurai's rock bottom creativity
