There have been complaints about how Captain Falcon made Lucina appear weak in the trailer. But let's remember that in the Fire Emblem universe, not a single character uses punches or kicks on the opponents. Therefore the fact that Falcon goes straight for her face and later an attempt to disarm her (one of the special abilities in the Fire Emblem games, specifically the Tellius saga) catches her by surprise.
There's also the fact that, in his home series, Captain Falcon's main rival is Samurai Goroh, who is, of course, a Samurai. So he would probably know how to fight against someone with a sword from experience if things ever got physical between the two, or from training himself to, just in case.

Everyone saw them in the Gematsu Leak and they were like 'Gosh, I never thought of this idea, but it would be great!', and then, like everything else involving fake text leaks, convinced themselves that they were realistic options.

The same shit happened back during Brawl with characters like Ashley and Waluigi.

In Palutena's reveal trailer for Wii U/3DS, Pit and Link are portrayed as rivals. Why? Because both of them are the chosen heroes of goddesses of light -The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword reveals that Link is the (reincarnation of the) chosen hero of Hylia, and Pit is the chosen hero of Palutena, who takes a special interest in Link because of this.

I'm slightly concerned at how Japan-orientated Smash is.

Let's look at Smash Run
It's one of the main selling points of the 3DS version, but there is no online play, only local play. This is okay in Japan since nearly everyone has a 3DS and people are always in close quarters to another 3DS (just compare the streetpasses).

Whereas in other countries, you'd actually need to be travel/drive to play smash run with your friends.

And look at the roster, there is some pandering towards Japan. (Little Mac is just one character). Sakurai was also mentioned to be "reluctant" to speak with Western Devs, which include Retro Stuidos, who are partially responsible for Metriod and DK being popular in the West.

They need to think about the West while making this game, as the sales prove that Smash sells better in the West than Japan, and arguably has a bigger following.
>>
It's been fun /ssbg/
We hyped together, we laughed together, and in the end we all cried together - for either tears of joy or sadness...

Smash has been the only game I really cared about, I've spent so much of my childhood playing 64/melee, and then into PM when my friends and I discovered it. Smash 4 kept me on the edge of my seat, and I would almost always go on here to see if there were any new developments or leaks, but now that time has come to an end. It's over now and the final roster is out, the hype is over.

I'm done /ssbg/, I had hope in this roster - I wanted to LOVE my favorite company - but Nintendo really changed. I don't feel any sadness or anger, just disappointment now, and my inner self telling me to move on.

Thanks /ssbg/, you guys were cool.
I should go for a run, maybe read a book... I hear Echopraxia is a good novel...
Take care friends, and have fun smashing it up!

Shulk can see into the future, and is a character who was predicted in many rumored leaks for a good portion of Wii U/3DS's development time, and that includes a major one from a few days before his reveal. Nobody was really surprised when he was added to the roster, because you could say... that everyone saw it coming.

A Japanese game made by Japanese developers for a Japanese audience. We'll never see a game out of Nintendo aimed specifically at America/Europe/Australia. That shit will never happen.

Hell, even games that were originally thought to be aimed at the west turned out to be aimed at the Japanese the whole time.

how do you react
>>
>>79911962
You could pit Palutena against Zelda and that's the closest you'll get.

Anyways, why do Robin's weapons break? Simple, they use weapons that have limited uses. They just use regular swords and tomes which break after a certain amount of use, meanwhile the other FE characters use the legendary weapons that cannot be broken in their games (Ike's Ragnell is unbreakable in his games, but can be broken in Awakening, meanwhile both Falchions are unbreakable)

Bowser Jr. and the seven Koopalings all share the same character slot. After all, they all share the same clown car too, so all it would take is knowledge of how to operate it. All eight of them have appeared in their home series either in their own clown car or a clown car operated together.

Anyway in the meantime I'll be bracing for DLC. Won't be buying the game unless Ice Climbers get in in some form, I don't even play them but cutting them flat-out instead of making them work in some way reeks of being a cop-out. And yes, I'm still bitter about Dark Pit when two other clones could have just basically been ported as-is.

Both explanations make sense, especially considering you can find multiple in the Infinite Regalia map, and though Priam comes with one, likely the same one that was passed down from Ike, it's likely lost its blessing and has a lot of wear and tear over the years.

Interesting thing to note though is that Priam's is unbreakable when you fight him, but when you recruit him, he has the regular, breakable one.

Of all the AT's to be removed, Isaac really makes little to no sense. There are tons of significantly more obscure characters that still have retained their AT status since Brawl, while Isaac is a character who's decently requested as a playable character and has even had a new game, post-Brawl. He definitely deserves to at least be an AT. If he's actually been demoted to plain trophy/sticker status, I'll be extremely surprised.

The only character who doesn't get hit in the Mii Fighters' debut trailer is the Wii Fit Trainer, who dodges all of their attacks. In the Wii Fit series, the Trainers were, well, your trainers, and Miis are often used as avatars for the player. Basically, it's the student against the master, and the master is winning.


Interestingly, Mii Fighters lack an actual franchise symbol of their own, instead using the Smash Bros. symbol, which is usually reserved for either Smash Bros. original content or series that lack either a stage or playable character. Even more strangely, stages from games that star Miis are already in the game and have their own unique symbols, so the decision not to use them must have been quite deliberate. Furthermore, all three of their available movesets are totally original, deriving mere concepts at best from the games that focus around them. Altogether, this seems like a rather unusual way to choose to represent Miis in Smash Bros., but if you look at it in terms of the original concept of Miis as all-purpose Digital Avatars and not as actual characters, it actually all comes together perfectly. Instead of drawing from their past appearances, they're adapting to the game that they're in at the moment, which is exactly what they've done in every other game they've appeared in since their conception. It's actually the best possible way to represent them and what they are in Smash Bros.
This came back for a second helping of fridge brilliance after the enemies in the Multi Man Melee modes of Wii U/3DS were revealed. Remember Polygons? Wireframes? Alloys? This time, the Mii Fighters are your antagonists, which makes a lot of sense given all the variety in costumes, faces, and fighting styles available for them.

>>79913137
anything on the 3DS sells better because there's a fuckton out there, if every user with a Wii U getws smash it still won't even come close to 3DS sales, on nintendo they know this that's why both versions are getting released with delay, after the first weeks when everyone gets the 3DS version they will reveal all the Wii U shit so they have to buy the game again.

Silver Bow instead of Palutena Bow, and it fires shots more akin to the Darkness Bow.

Gets his own victory theme

Apparently he's a bit slower, arrows behave a bit differently, FS is different, and his side+b hits differently (multi-hits knocking in a different direction than pit). He's a melee style clone, essentially.

I think Sakurai is planning ahead. He needs to save OH SHIT THAT GUYS IN characters for a future game, cause lets be real, they make money off of them and revealing too much at the same time doesnt leave hype for another game.

K. Krool and Ridley are big requested characters, them being in smash 5 or any smash would make ppl wanna buy it or be in awh, kinda like Mega Man.

You guys feel?

Starfox characters had more than one trophy of themselves in Brawl (Adventures Fox, Assault Falco, etc).

Wolf used a different outfit in Brawl, too, and that trophy's his Assault model. It could happen.

What will not happen is Lucas because his specials have been recycled as customs for Ness. Sakurai could give him a new set but that's too much work.
>>
>>79915063judging from all the other alternate moves, I doubt they'd get that technical.

They all seem to have the same basic animations, but diferent properties, like Kirby spitting out ice for his suction alt and Mario just having different types of fireballs and fludd with the same animations.

Wario will probably just have something like a slower bike that does more damage, some other kind of vehicle, then a fast bike that runs everything over for minimal damage.

>>79915759
Magicant (or however you write it) has a chicken man pixelated thing that fights you. Also we haven't seen every stage and there's a slight possibility the GB stage has a boss considering we haven't seen it complete

Actually two KI representatives is more than enough.

Cutting characters in general is bad.

He's a third-party and their agreement most likely ended.

The original Donkey Kong Country came into being because a non-Japanese Nintendo employee was rather emphatically told by Nintendo's Japanese staff that no one but a Japanese person could make a good video game. He set out to prove them wrong.

... I'm pretty sure Sakurai (and most of Nintendo's Japanese staff) still feels the same way.

Why people are hating so much on the roster? Just because "lol clones"? we also received a lot of non-clones newcomers, also clones don't take development time that would be used for another character, they are just additionals to fill the roster. Is it because the roster is lacking previous characters like Ice Climbers and Wolf? seriously, somebody actually mained Wolf? So, what about the amazing newcomers like Shulk, Little Mac and Megaman? don't they matter?

Since Sakurai broke his rule of 'Alternates can't be different characters'
I thought it would be fun (and depressing) to put together a list of alternates we could have gotten from the current roster
This, of course, would be an attempt to eliminate the 3 clones
An Alternate would be a change of model, voice pack and/or sound effect packs
>>
Really glad they brought this theme into smash
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-EJEDwxvd0
>>
Is there a list of all the unlockable stages? I only know of Magicant.
>>
I am disappointed. I think a Lucas alternate costume would've been incredibly easy to make for Ness, especially since PK freeze is a custom move. They did it for Alph and 7 Koopalings, why not Lucas?

Same thing with Fox/Wolf. I feel like they could've done the same there, though I know they aren't THE SAME, it would've made people happy and would've required less effort than making an actual "new" character.

I was hoping for a "one more thing" as well. It's unfortunate that didn't seem to happen. "Duck Hunt Dog" was the biggest surprise and he wasn't even the hardest character to unlock!

The leak killed a lot of the surprises, but it's not so much the lack of characters I'm upset about. It's the lack of substantial unlocks. I think there's WAY too many characters unlocked from the start and there's a great deal of inconsistency with how "good" the alt costumes are.

I'm sorry, but is Ridley already confirmed for not being in? Oh, that's right. The 3DS version is barely released, the Wii U™ version isn't even out yet. Does one player streaming the game for several hours before the entire world even has it in their hands count as Ridley confirmed for not being part of the roster? Is that what you're saying? Because if you're saying that I can assure you that you're wrong. Why would you keep discussing this topic when nothing has even been confirmed yet? Sakurai has dropped big hints for how many months already? Maybe you should shut the fuck up before you keep discussing how Ridley isn't in. You know why? Because you're going to be embarassed when Ridley is revealed as an unlockable and becomes even more popular than ever. Are you fucking drunk? Are you retarded? Are you autistic? You are a fucking idiot and you should never call Ridley not being in Smash on this board again and I'm fucking serious. I almost have a feeling only one guy is making all these anti-Ridley posts because you're a faggot hater who doesn't like Ridley because he is that good. FUCK YOU, be good at something in YOUR life and then maybe try to troll us players in this board, like I give a fuck. It's so easy to spot out the samefag because you're a retard. Always doing stupid shit like this. Why don't you try to be a good poster? Just for once? For once in your fucking life try not to make another shitpost like you're doing now. That's just you, you're always right at getting it wrong. Fuck you. You are nothing.

Ganondorf is buffed a bit.
Ness is buffed.
Jigglypuff is mostly the same.
Wario's a hell of a lot better than he was in Brawl.

It's pretty obvious if you have an idea of how Sakurai's mind works.

He probably thinks adding characters as DLC diminishes the value and importance of those who made it in the vanilla game, or something equally stupid-sounding.

Now it became a fucking joke franchise like F-Zero and Wii Fit.

Which Final Smashes changed substantially?

I know ROBs changed, anything else?
>>
here is how you fix this turd of a roster

- Make Lucina an alternate costume for marth
- Make Dr.mario just an alternate costume for mario and keep the pills as a customizable move.
- Keep dark pit, but give him wolf treatment (different normals and specials based on the different weapons in KI uprising)
-Give different specials to Ganon
-Change toon link to use weapons from his portable games
- finish changing falcos moves so he doesnt feel like a fox clone anymore
- bring wolf, lucas, snake and ice climbers for fucks sake.
- Put fucking ridley so everyone shuts the fuck up about him.
- Keep baby boswer and the dog, they are perfectly fine and awesome

there, I saved smash

>Roster confirmed
>No Blanc
Alright, I'm fucking done. Not including Neptune I could understand but Blanc? She's the modern face of Nintendo and it never even crossed Sakurai's mind that maybe, maybe it would be a good idea to include her? Whoever put this chucklefuck in charge of this series needs to go die in a fire along with him. Jesus, does Nintendo not know what they're doing at all? This is why they're dying.

Old news, but Kirby got entirely new one.

And Charizard and Lucario got megas.

no

ivysaur was one bad bitch, but i'll just have to settle with what i'm getting, which is a shitload.
>>
>>79918167
Hmm, I dunno, maybe the one that doesn't have a single rep in the game anymore?

I didn't even play ice climbers and I think its really shitty that they got the cut.

And what's your source for this? Not "look at this thing that means it's possible", an actual source.

>>79917450
Wouldn't this mean the Hands themselves are neutral forces but were corrupted by this core?

>>79918273
Only Mother 3 got shafted; if you saw Magicant, heard the 8 Melodies, and didn't think that was a goddamn showcase of love, then you need to get a soul.

>Not Golden Sun

If they don't get repped somehow in Wii U with ATs then they are official deader than dirt. All hope for future games will be dead.

You keep posting that, and I still have no idea what the hell it's supposed to mean, especially now that you've added Mother to the context.

>Sakurai will die in your lifetime.

How do you suppose he's going to feel when he's laying on his death bed, thinking about all the people who cursed his name and wished death upon him as he wasted years of his life trying to please people?
