So now that Dark Pit is in, does anyone else but me feel a little hype?
With all this Kid Icarus wanking Sakurai has been pulling in Smash 4, I feel like he'll give Dark Pit some special treatment and make him his own character rather than a clone. I mean, he even has the Dark Pit Staff in his character art, as seen in pic related. If he does indeed have a different move set, what are you hoping for?
I'm hoping for:
>Dark Pit Staff
>Great Reaper Palm Palm
>Power of Flight (Pit's original Up + B but powered up by Pandora)
>Final Smash involving Pandora
It would be great. Any thoughts?
On game mod websites, adding content that's a literal recolor of shit already in the game can get you banned from the site or at least laughed off of it.
That's for game mods. Just mods.
Nintendo with an entire fucking dev team at their disposal does a cs:s fpsbanana-tier recolor and people get excited?
>Take advantage of his expanded powers of flight
>Silver Bow because well I like the colour silver
>Dark Pit Staff to snipe from afar *zoning intensifies*
>Pandora Claws yes plz
>Final Smash involving Mirror of Truth
>Different battle stance, taunts, voice pack and smash moves
>In-battle banter in the vein of Uprising's in-stage dialogue
>Canon salt tier whenever Pit beats him
Yeah, I can live with that.
>I feel like he'll give Dark Pit some special treatment and make him his own character rather than a clone
He better at this point cause his inclusion is still completely stupid, especially when more popular and successful series (Mainly DONKEY KONG) have way less representation.
What are you fags gonna say when the game is released?
>>Believing your eyes
>Jesus christ it's just YOUR brain's personal interpretation of the light from the screen it doesn't mean dark pit is actually in the game maybe you're just color blind.
The guy who made the leak said Ridley was a hidden character along with a few others.
Either way you're probably right.
I hope he gets the Black Club. I don't care how edgy it looks, this thing is sexy as fuck
Shulk looks okay, the only problem is how slow he looks and how he looks like a mishmash of Link and Roy. Bowser Jr. looks fan-fucking-tastic I hate that faggot, but I want to main him.
>dat Koopa Klown Kopter
>dem Mini Bowsers
>those Klown Kopter expressions
I love that little fuck now.
I want to play as him entirely because he's somehow the most edgy character in the roster. Every time I play online as him I'll be listening to this, and if there are any always choose stages with it as an option.
It looks like his staff is in that pic, so I have hope for a moveset with actual effort put into it. Sakurai wouldn't put in a palette swap if he was just going to slightly alter his stats, w-would he?
Perhaps a better-made pic will make my point better. That video cannot be confirmed or denied as being correct, and the simplest assumption to make in the circumstances is that it is a fake.
He likes his own games and the bevy of Uprising weapons is largely unrepresented. Making a palette a character is exceptionally high levels of lazy and Sakurai has a little more integrity than that
Ganondorf's movements are unusually clunky, and the whole thing moves far slower than known footage of the actual game. If that's real then it must be in some kind of ridiculous slo-mo mode that makes Brawl look like Melee by comparison.
Also convenient how all of Shulk's moves are identical to Marth's and Ike's.
>videos of the leak out now
If the leak is apparently some ESRB video leak Ninty sent in
as seen by the lack of a gap, why would you record the video playing with a camera? Wouldn't it be easier to just give the raw video out?
>YOU FAGS DONT HAVE PROOF
>Here's some proof
>WOW WHAT FAKE PROOF
Game footage here looks like they're all in molasses. Mew2king, numerous other pro gamers, and the people who have played the demo at Best Buy have all confirmed the game is faster than Brawl (albeit slower than Melee).
Why should I trust this one video over all those other people who have played the game?
>point out flaws in proof that anyone who has seen other gameplay videos can confirm
>YOU FAGS DON'T BLINDLY ACCEPT EVERYTHING? FUCK YOU!
Another thing to point out is that Dark Pit's fighting style is very different from Pit's. Dark Pit likes to fight, while Pit only fights when he has to.
Dark Pit could fight like Wolf: more visceral and brutal than his rival. He could slash more wildly and quickly at his opponents, be better in the air considering he can actually fly, and could even have a good grab game due to his more violent nature.
>anyone who isn't most excited for Duck Hunt Dog
It's like i'm dealing with children
If he's unique and Shulk is a fucking Marth and Link clone then I'm cancelling my preorder. At this point I think he's just pissed that he was made to make this game and it was announced before he was even told and so he's just going fuck you guys it's my game
>A different build on a different platform of what was demo'd with cpus instead of players looks different from what you imagined from what you heard
>faggy series that has sold about 2 million copies total and only has 3 games (including one that NO ONE played that was only on the GB and was never released in Japan)
>Reboot of series just so happened to be developed by Sakurai so he shoves in a fucking PALLETE SWAP THAT NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT as its own character
FIRST I WAS PISSED OFF THAT KID ICARUS HAS THE 2nd MOST ITEMS IN THE GAME, AND NOW YOU'RE PULLING THIS SHIT?
Oh, also its great how KI has two different Stages in SSB4, yet Mega Man and Sonic are shafted hard
Sakurai should fuck off he's a piece of shit that's only pandering to himself here.
If edgy pit is anything but a clone while Ganondorph is still a clone and Advance Wars still has no rep then he should go fuck himself.
>Marth and Link clone
Oh stop this shit. His Up B is somewhat like Marth & Roy's, big fucking deal. He uses an attack like that in fucking Xenoblade. He also uses a fucking counter in his own game as well, so don't say it's exactly like Marth, Lucina, Roy, or Ike's. His A's may be like Link's, but so are Toon Links. Hell, some of Mario's A attacks are the same as Samus'.
OP said nothing about Duck Hunt Dog. This is about how Dark Pit could actually be an original and interesting character.
Oh right it only has a ton of games dating back to the famicom, through all generations, games that actually made it to america and sold big time before.
But kid ikarus deserves 3 characters right?
Doesn't explain why the human-controlled Marth was moving like a slug too.
>IF I REPEAT IT ENOUGH TIMES AND SHOW THE SAME VIDEO CONSTANTLY MAYBE IT'LL COME TRUE
No, it will not. I will not believe it until either the game comes out with those characters present or Sakurai confirms it himself. Until then, it's unprovable and therefore worthless. You may as well be arguing that a teapot is somewhere in orbit between Earth and Mars and that since no telescope is strong enough to deny its existence then it must therefore exist.
See, he's smart. The video might be convincing, but on its own it confirms nothing.
That just makes it more suspicious- he has enough material for a genuinely unique moveset, so why is it all bastardized versions of the other sword users' attacks?
Sakurai probably contemplating suicide after Iwata goes off on him about the leak. He told him it better not happen again, but it fucking happened. Sakurai is now out of a job, and has disgraced his family.
>Dark pit gets a slot
>Dark mario from Galaxy and Dark samus are just assist trophies
>Dark link, the fucking coolest of them all is just a swap.
>Dark kirby is wearing a fucking mask
>Darkness not even mentioned.
What is with this anti-dark campaign? why not make them all playable?
guys guys guys the most important thing is.
The Dogs name is Hunt and the Duck is his parter
>You may as well be arguing that a teapot is somewhere in orbit between Earth and Mars and that since no telescope is strong enough to deny its existence then it must therefore exist.
No, more like I'm arguing that a teapot is somewhere in orbit between Earth and Mars and then proceeded to give you a telescope to look at it with, and when you saw it you said you won't believe that's a real teapot until I give you a spaceship to fly you to it and make you earl gray with it, afterwards we'd have to confirm with the company that manufactured it that it is indeed a teapot.
I'd like for this leak to be fake too, but this is pathetic dude. It's over. Quit it.
And I'm arguing that your "telescope" is a kaleidoscope and that you throw a shitfit when I ask if you have a real telescope with you to look at the teapot with.
It's not "over" until the game comes out or we get an official statement. Get over it.
no no no heres the fucking difference between the two.
you idiots DEFENDED Evil Cole. from what Ive seen on here is the majority are having a NEGATIVE reaction to Dark Pit.
>duck named Duck
Your are a blundering dimwit. The duck is Hunt (signifying his perpetual state of being hunted) and the dog is Duck (which automatically informs someone of his usefulness in the aforementioned field of 'duck hunting'). Use you're brain once and a while please, for the benefit of all of us.
And why do you keep acting that this is the one holy truth knowing how well Gematsufag went for you?
Nobody's denying a thing other than you denying me my ability to draw my own conclusion that the evidence does not support the leak's veracity. You can call me a denialfag as long as I get to call you a leak-cultist who can't think for himself without leakers showing him a video telling him what to do.
Look at the top half of the post that you replied to, as well as >>259882670
And this time don't assume your video is telling the whole truth. Leakers don't release this info from the goodness of their hearts, after all.
There's being a 'leakfag' with hardly any proof to back it up other than hearsay, than there's having a video with gameplay of the actual game shown to you. At this point you're beyond denial, you're delusional in believing your own personal thoughts on the matter than the real proof shown to you.
This isn't a matter of 'thinking for oneself', it's a matter of acknowledge the truth.
This is not a subjective matter, it's a factual, objective one. The leak is real. Stop fooling yourself.
If Kid Icarus had more characters than Mario and Pokemon Iwata would hang Sakurai by the balls from the Tokyo tower.
Also Sakurai has mentioned that Fire Emblem is one of his favorite series, so there you go.
Pokemon and Mario are infinitely more popular. Even FE is to an extent, it has almost 20 games or so. Dark Pit was going over the top, the spot could've been used for another DK or Kirby rep.
Prove to me that "gameplay" is from the game first. Extraordinary claims (e.g. hidden newcomers) require extraordinary evidence, and unless another video from a different person is leaked which confirms the first one is leaked will NOT join your leakfagging cult.
The only delusional ones are those who are too quick to stop questioning as soon as they get something that confirms what they want to hear. The leak is a fake. Cling to false hope, but at least admit it is false so you won't be so disappointed- it's for your own good.
KI only has two games. (GB one wasn't released in Japan and was essentially a port)
Yet it has
>most items in game besides Zelda series
>most enemies in Smash Run
>two unique stages while other series get shafted by having the same stage in both versions
>bunch of assist trophies
>will most likely have the most regular trophies and music too
Fuck Sakurai. I have no respect for him anymore. I'm still buying the game obviously but he's more of a nepotistic crony hack than the writers of Kotaku and Polygon
What else would it be from? Heavily modded brawl? Explain Bowser Jr.'s and Shulk's original moves and models, Bowser's current appearance and buffs, the Nintendo shutdown, and pretty much everything shown in the video!
Why are skeptical douches who don't even believe the leaks like you doing on threads like this anyway?
>Prove to me that "gameplay" is from the game first.
The aesthetics presented in the leaked pictures coincide with the gameplay shown. It is undoubtable of Super Smash Bros 4. There are plenty of things that point to this not being a 'mod'. Bowser Jr. having completely original animations is one of them.
>Extraordinary claims (e.g. hidden newcomers) require extraordinary evidence.
This isn't an extraordinary claim as you make it out to be. We've been given photoevidence which could have been faked but the videos prove it's real.
>and unless another video from a different person is leaked which confirms the first one is leaked will NOT join your leakfagging cult.
You're being selective in where the evidence comes from. So far it's been credible.
>The only delusional ones are those who are too quick to stop questioning as soon as they get something that confirms what they want to hear.
No, that's not right at all. People have accepted it regardless of their reactions. The only delusional people here are the ones insisting that it's fake despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
>The leak is a fake. Cling to false hope, but at least admit it is false so you won't be so disappointed- it's for your own good.
You should take your own advice, mate.
Isn't it hilarious? How we get to make the same posts about anti-leak fags that they once loved to make about us?
I just wish they'd adopt trips so I can filter their retardation. Anyone who denies the leak after the videos have been shown are insane, and should probably be institutionalized; because it's borderline fanatical.
>being this mad about the greatest Nintendo game in the last decade getting this much representation in Smash
Uprising deserved it. It's the most refreshingly innovative game that Nintendo has put out in a long-ass time.
we hardly got to see his moveset. but he seems to be buffed from what was shown. dash and normals are faster, looks to have invincibility after up b (not to mention that was his only special shown).
any chance of new vids is out the window at this point, but i remain optimistic that my main has been given good adjustments without being altered too much.
>still has shitty, old man proportions
>still has awkward animations
>still a shitty half clone of Cap
>character model is still CoD brown and muddy
Look at how much better they made Bowser. It's unacceptable.
Watching videos of smash, it doesn't really look all that good. Bowser floats around doing flips, wavedashing is still gone, Shulk's slashes look exactly the same as any character with a beam sword, the remaining characters have 0 hype about them. If doc mario was unlocked in game unannounced, I could see that being exciting due to the possibility of more returns like Mewtwo, but really...
I kinda don't want to buy the new smash bros. The series has had two duds in a row, and Sakurai doesn't seem to like it any more.
>wavedashing is still gone
>remaining chracters have 0 hype about them
>two duds in a row
holy fucking hell, anon.
how fucking depressed and cynical are you to not get hyped to smack people around with a fucking duck.
not to mention "wavedashing" god you're such a fucking faggot holy shit i'm angry.
I just wanna know.
Was this bait, or are you literally this fucking bitchy.
Not even Duck Hunt got me this mad.
Who's the stage boss for Palutena's Temple if Dark Pit is playable?
I remember some guy who kept posting about the purple developer text that said BOSS HP.
>Duck hunt getting you mad
Someone didn't play the fucking game.
That someone is also a faggot who has terrible taste.
Can you guess who that someone is?
it's you faggot
Holy shit I'm laughing so hard, I just cant help but get excited when a nintoddlers hopes and dreams get crushed. O god I remember the god awful voice actor for pit in brawl, please tell me he's back. NENENENEENANANANANANANANA
dark pit is an addition to the new smash brothers. O how the mighty have fallen. Tell me guys, when did you realize nintendo died? For me it was when I played brawl on release night and ended up playing melee 2 hours later.
>finish spreading the peanut butter
>instinctively throw the knife into the sink before spreading the jelly
You spelled edge pit wrong.
It could have been dark link for gods sake, even then it is a lazy way to add substance to a game. Melee still remains king. Make sure you babbis get a good nights sleep and eat a good breakfast, school is starting soon.
>get Strawberry Jelly just to try it out
>put it on my sandwich instead of grape jelly one night
>ITS THE FOOD OF THE GODS
>wake up in the morning
>hives all over my legs
>I'm fucking allergic to strawberries
I don;t know about you folks, but I'm actually upset the roster got leaked.
I was ready for some more reveals and imagine how the duck hunt reveal would have went. It would have been great.
Would you please shut the fuck up with your stupid weeab shit
>There are people who think Krystal wont be in, along with Ridley and a few others
>Not even fucking Veridi
>Dark Pit Staff
That shit's a literal sniper rifle, it'll be interesting to see how that works in a game like Smash Bros.
A powerful, fast, thin beam that can KO weakened players from a distance... I can see it now.
>images get revealed
>we won't believe anything until we see gameplay footage!
>gameplay gets revealed
>w-well you can easily fake gameplay footage with brawl mods!
>gameplay gets taken down by nintendo
>B-BUT ANYONE CAN POSE AS NINTENDO AND FILE FALSE COPYRIGHT CLAIMS
you people are getting desperate, man
Jesus Sakurai, if you are gonna shill your own game at least put in the best character of it
Did you play Uprising?
If you did, that's fine. But I have feeling you didn't see the entire arc of Dark Pit.
His story of redemption was pretty compelling for someone who could've just been written off as the "evil counterpart."
Photorealistic graphics, think ending of Portal 2 in the field.
NES-sound effects and special effects for retro appeal, dog transforms from 8-bit to a realistic fucking dog. Ducks turn 8-bit as they fall out of the air.
Nintendo portable projector for off the wall play
different weapon types
Different scenery with sunsets and skies that look like beautiful paintings. Different locales and seasons. 5-star resort location quality.
large varieties of challenge, obviously a 2 player mode, one mode involves a gigantic 200 m duck that flies at you from the distance and you need to repel it with gun fire.
One mission where thousands of ducks literally blot out the sun. You have to use a machine gun or auto-shotgun just to survive the onslaught.
Dog gets kidnapped by ducks
Bring the fight TO THEM
Final Battle is in Duckburg
Suddenly Ducktales Crossover, final boss fight against Scrooge McDuck and Launchpad McQuack
Have a first-person hunting game using the same engine and graphical style of Zelda 2015. Methodically plan your hunt, "herd" the animals, then pull off a silent shot and enjoy your meal. Work day to day, and have an Animal Crossing-style house that you can build up on your free time
