Why isn't he in? He has a ready moveset from the japanese only gba game and Namco X capcom
>implying people knew who ness was in the original SSB
Ness is known 99% of SSB, and not from Earthbound / Mother. People learn of his actual game origins through a different game.
wrong, the fanbase (except the people that think it's a sonic character) isn't small at all, the ps2 game sold a crapload and the eshop version of Klonoa empire of dreams is selling a crapton, with people spamming that part of miiverse and people also sending tweets to Namco. Also what anon said about Ness.
It was either the biggest game icon ever or an obscure character only furries like.
I'm not a furry and I wanted him in ;_;
Because Namco was trying to represent their old arcade games through Pac-Man.
Although I do think he's been seeing a slight rise in popularity recently, there's no way he would be placed over Pac-Man.
.....It's because of the following:
1 franchise per 3rd party.
Pac-man's the logical choice for Namco; he's their mascot afterall.
I play vidya and I knew all those characters before Smash bros and I have no fucking clue who the shitty furry OP character is even now
Sakurai wanted a third party character.
Given their help, he wanted someone from Namco.
Now given the option between
>main character of moderately popular 3D platform series that's now neglected
>the face of arcades, the most recognizable character in the world, even moreso than Mario, known by the most casual of casuals, and even got his own song
Which one would be a better choice?
>Why isn't he in?
They are trying to sell a Pac-Man game on the new system, not a Klonoa game. Namco was likely the people to decide who to put into the game in the first place, so they're going to market the one who will get them the most money. Everyone knows that people will buy up games thanks to Smash Bros appearances at this point.
Nah, it seems more like Sakurai being Sakurai. If Pac was forced in by Namco, he wouldn't have all those arcade sprites and would look like his modern design instead of the arcade cabinet.
He isn't real in his own series , how would he fight in smash
I hate it when Klonoa fans bang on about the character when most of them just want more porn.
What about good characters from good games that have been neglected for years?
Characters that aren't just wank-fodder for furfags?
>expecting anything else.
With Klonoa on /v/, its inevitable.
The only advertising that went nice was for the eshop gba game, they actually got a video on nintendo's official youtube channel and a lot of sites posted the news. It's actually selling so people actually know Klonoa.
Shifty Look sank, though I suspect that's because of a dumb ass move to have them create a fucking dating sim with Andrew Hussie at the helm.
>game over for klonoa ever being anything more than an assist trophy
As I already mentioned: >>248232607
>1 franchise per 3rd party.
So the assist trophies will be from the PacMan franchise and nothing more.
Not true, the shitposters that post porn actually want porn. Anyways nothing can stop porn, there's a lot of porn still being made regarding dead series so I don't see how that would change something.
he posted the image AFTER using it as a fake leak, and even if it was posted on dA, it doesn't matter. deviantart has people who posts their art there becausw there aren't many other known sites where to do that. Also the people that think Klonoa is a sonic character or do OC with Klonoa x sonic character aren't "the community". It's like competitive smash people having a bad reputation because of the usual tourneyfags giving it a bad name
>Calling someone edgy is now leddit teir

In short, not enough people played the first ever Klonoa game for the PS1; Some played the GBA games, the Sequel and the Remake, but they never knew what made Klonoa great in the first place.
He's an underdog, doomed to retire to an endless stream of cameos and ports.
Is there any hope for Namco to follow up with ShiftyLook's goal?
Only if they manage to stay on track and not derail into a High School Dating Sim where they make Lolo emo as fuck
as in a piss at the world kina emo, not the self pity kind.
I mean their overall goal.
Reviving their dead franchises.
...well, I don't think Klonoa is that desperate to be revived anyways; same with Katamari Damacy.
Wonder Momo and Bravoman however, I do see coming back with a new game, fuck they only have one Game in their entire careers.
When I heard that Lolo was some kind of Emo
I played it just to find out what it was like. It was free, so why not?
Seriously, who the fuck thought that it was a good idea to do that?
The ending was kind of cute though.
As cute as those guys are, that's still kind of creepy in a way.
I like this one even more.
MEEE!! I'm the reason! Good thing it is just a game hahahahaha.
>MFW Klonoa's search interest on Google is the highest it's ever been since around May 2009 (when the Wii remake came out).
Is it a good sign, or am I getting my hopes up?
>the red, blue, and yellow hat
I guess the only thing is to discuss about Shifty Look. The Klonoa comic is okay, but it did get rushed in the end due to Shifty Look closing it's doors.
It was pretty high quality stuff. They even hired the guy that did the art for the recent Megaman comic.
>it did get rushed in the end
Yeah, near the end it was like "I'm so happy that we're all together again!" followed in the next page by "OH SHIT WE HAVE TO SET UP OUR DEFENSES RIGHT NOW!".
Then there was that damn cliffhanger at the end, which I find odd. None of the other comics left off with cliffhangers, or even "To be continued!"
Do you think that was intentional, or just rushed so they could have all of the comics done and kill off the site?
Because Pac Man is in and there is a Pac Man on his hat.
1st party characters, which the game has tons of room for compared to 3rd party.
Pac-Man was definitely the better choice over fucking Klonoa if they were to decide one 3rd party Namco rep.
>That one part near the end where a ton of them would spawn at once, and would chase you while you were standing on that slow moving platform.
Of all of the possible animal combinations that Klonoa could be, I doubt that he would be either one of those.
That's not the part I was thinking of, but that's pretty close.

Silly anon, having moveset potential means you have NO CHANCE of being in Smash Bros.
Do you think Pacman in his games could summon Galaga ships, police rats, and Dig Dug enemies at will?
The whole "moveset potential" argument has been beaten like a dead horse for a while now, as its been proven wrong time and again.
The one reason people still hold on to it is because they want to believe they have something to judge who gets in or not. When they don't.
If you've read this before, you know what's going to happen.
To think that most of these people that were shitting on the idea of Pac-Man being in smash when this was "leaked" are shitting on the idea of Klonoa being in smash right now.
Doubt it. Unless they somehow convinced Nintendo to give them TWO reps, then I don't think it's possible.
Assuming that they do this with other Namco characters, my guess is that Klonoa would be a Collectible Trophy, with the slight possibility of him being an assist trophy.
If we're REALLY lucky, we might see him as a DLC character, if the rumors of DLC are true.
>Why didn't they use a virtually unknown character from only a few games and with very little relevancy over one of the biggest gaming icons of all time
Gee fucking whiz, anon, it's a mystery.
I'd say it's more in the eyes, but the ears are pretty cute too.
That would be Guntz.
I think you can guess why he has the name.
>Games that run at 60 FPS these days are looked down upon
Feels bad, man.
That's the beauty of the plot of the first game, it start off as a innocent adventure of a kid and his little glowy ball friend, but slowly it became more intense
it when Joka/Joker blew up Klonoa's house, killing his Grandpa in the process, when shit get finally hits the fan.
