It's like if Sakurai purposely made this to BTFO the gematsu leaks
Post yfw gematsu got BTFO
Post yfw Lucina got in and everyone got proved the fuck wrong
Post yfw glorious Japan Time tears
its like Sakurai purposely made it really
bigas a ruse
>leakfags can't get a word in edgewise anymore without everyone shitting on them
Sweet justice, I was sick and fucking tired of every SSB4 discussion being MUH LEAKS and people being shat on if they so much as questioned it as anything other than fact. The knee-jerk, suffocating narrative swing both ways.
I still wouldn't mind Shulk, though.
>b-but the leak is still real guys, he just thought Robin was Shulk
The difference is that if Dark Pit was planned playable they'd have confirmed him during the trailer when he showed up. Since he's directly shown and referred to and thus disconfirmed, chances are it's to open the door to Hades as a playable character.
I wouldn't at all be surprised if that turned out to be the case, and you shouldn't be, either.
>direct disconfirmation of Viridi
>direct disconfirmation of Phosphora
>direct disconfirmation of Dark Pit
>not a single mention or reference to Hades
Get ready for some fuckin' shenanigans next month.
I seriously didn't think Lucina was going to be in because I thought Robin would be a much better choice. He got in so whatever, it's cool that both made it.
I wouldn't count on Smash Run enemies to be indicators that there will be playable characters to go along with them. There's probably going to be a bunch of them from franchises not already represented in Smash.
Rhythm Heaven is another one, don't forget. Sneaky Spirit, or whatever. Can't argue with the proof.
At any rate, Nintendo's got a boatload of franchises to take enemies from to put into Smash Run. It'll be a new way to pay tribute to those franchises that isn't a trophy/assist trophy/footnote on a Nintendo release timeline.
The Gematsu Defenders demanded that we pretend that she wasn't mentioned because 'it wasn't during E3'. Then we all played along and Greninja came and BTFO the Gematsu Leak and the Gematsu Defenders demanded that it was true because vagueness. Then we all played along and now irrefutable proof comes along that the Gematsu Leak's remaining picks were padding/guesses/wishlisting from the creator, and the Gematsu Defenders are still in full damage control.
Can you believe there are Gematsu Defenders on the internet RIGHT NOW trying to save face by comparing their leaks to the Pokemon X/Y leak?
They didn't confirm that nigger either, so further proves my point.
Who knows? Just my guess. When all the other viable playable options have been exhausted and all that's left is Hades, I just kinda assume Hades.
Wouldn't surprise me to see him a boss/event in Smash Run or something instead, though, so it's anyone's guess.
You're delusional if you think Smash fans will give any fucks about Hades, especially in comparison to Captain Falcon.
Fuck, the only character I could imagine getting as much hype as Falcon would be Goku or some shit.
>gematsu characters are being scrapped
It's like you think the leak that came out was real and Sakurai made some clones to replace them and make it look fake.
I could care less about Lucina, and we've had clones/semi-clones in every Smash, so who cares? It was going to happen regardless of what Sakurai said he intended to do, and Chorus Men/Shulk/Chrom were clearly not planned from the beginning like everyone else, so.. yeah.
I'd be down with that.
Yeah. Shoe's on the other foot and Gematsu Defenders will say anything to try to save face, man.
It's naive to assume there's not going to be at least one or two, and it's not like they required a ton of resources and time to implement if they're doing it. You sound awfully bitter. Were you a Shulk/Chrom fanboy?
This is Sakurai we're talking about. The guy is so biased for his own shit it hurts.
>You sound awfully bitter. Were you a Shulk/Chrom fanboy?
Yes, I was given legitimate hope that there wouldn't be any clone newcomers. Instead I'm faced with a reality that suggests the clones are going to start coming in like mad.
>Lucina was near the top of Japan's wishlists akak the people Sakurai actually listens to
not even near
She was only wanted by FE fans, and sakurai will listen to the fest because nintendo is having fucking trouble with them because they used to buy shitton ofnintendo products
He's a well written and likable villain in Uprising. The only people who'd disagree are either people who haven't played the game or bitter waifu fags.
All Sakurai has to do is give him exposure. He has proven himself time and time again that he can deliver the hype.
>tfw Shulk will never be in Smash Bros as a playable character
>tfw Choir Boys will never be a thing
>tfw Chrom is Final Smash bait
That list is from a jackass who suclks at Japanese and makes shit up
Here's an actually reliable source
And the main reason people want him in is so he can mock and commentate, which he can't do when playable. He's work better as a stage element, appearing every so often to hurl some insults and an attack or two. Medusa would work better as a KI villain rep.
More delusion than a Ridleyfag.
And I should know.
I'm a Ridleyfag
>He's a well written and likable villain in Uprising
Doesn't matter when it comes to reveal hype.
>The only people who'd disagree are either people who haven't played the game or bitter waifu fags.
Assume 80% of people hyped for Smash have not played it
>All Sakurai has to do is give him exposure. He has proven himself time and time again that he can deliver the hype.
No one will care about this in a trailer, especially if it's as cringeworthy as Palutena's.
I'm a sucker for spellswords.Will probably main him
>IT ISN'T MUH SOURCE SO I DONT APROVE IT
Also thanks for giving me more credibility for my point, japs didn't ask for mac and didn't know too well about him, unlike the west
>Yes, I was given legitimate hope that there wouldn't be any clone newcomers.
You and me both, brother. Same guy you were talking to.
It's why I don't care about Lucina, since she clearly required damn near zero effort to make.
>Post yfw glorious Japan Time tears
Japan loves Luci, it's the americans who are crying about Chrom
I don't understand why people are even happy about Lucina at all. She's just a Marth clone without a tipper which is even worse than Roy.
Including Chrom could have opened up an entirely new moveset for a sword fighter. It's laziness and waifufagottry on Nintendo's part imo
>Activate Lucina's final smash
>Hear "Hand... HUNGERS!"
>Owain appears and whoops ass on the target with Lucina
>Every time she uses the Final Smash it summons a different Future Child
>Their hair color is randomized every time
At the very least, I want Morgan to be a part of Lucina's final smash
For the most part, a lot of the excitement revolving around Lucina is that she had a hand in debunking the remaining Gematsu Leak newcomers.
The rest hate her 'cause she's a clone.
Developed by westerns and mainly bouhgt by them
not to mention the asked for him a lot
Why are you retards acting like anyone except Chrom actually got deconfirmed? The only one it's looking dire for is Chorus Men and it's still very likely that there will be some sort of Rhythm Heaven rep in the game.
If Lucina had been shown three months ago, would you call Palutenafags, Pacfags and Miifags BTFO as well?
Cant really deny that at this point. I wonder what happened, since I remember the reports that he was hesitant to give Kirby more reps in the previous games or something along those lines.
Could Uprising alone really have made samurai shatter his humility shell?
I want Morgan to be playable
Avatar had to go and be more relevant didn't he
Why can't we have the tactician with the reasonably consistent design
Fuck off breakman, the gamatsu leak was the worst outcome for kerfuffle's future
>I don't understand why people are even happy about Lucina at all.
maybe because they like Lucina?
>debunking the remaining Gematsu Leak newcomers.
But that didn't happen. Do you even know your own arguments anymore? The thing that was debunked was "these are the only remaining characters to be revealed".
Oh and Chrom, but no one gives a shit about Chrom.
I was one of the guys who told /v/ that there was no way Lucina would get in after Marth's reveal. Swore it up and down.
I'm probably gonna play Lucina more than Marth.
Sorry for doubting you, Lucinafags.
>Assume 80% of people hyped for Smash have not played it
>implying everybody played F-Zero
>implying anybody played Fire Emblem
That's my point. Sakurai doesn't need a foundation to make a character good or well liked. But Hades has one and Sakurai could work magic with it.
Lucina doesn't have Roy's horrible sourspot, though. Her blade has equal power throughout it, which is more like Ike. Plus she's going to have different physics, weight, etc like all clones.
I love how Sakurai constantly shits on all the fans, and Nintendo fanboys still think he's a god.
We've officially crossed into negative hype Anon.
We better prepare our asses because now we're being hunted like black men in the forties.
These faggots are going to hound us every time we mention "well maybe it wasn't fucking cool to have Chrom get fucking buttraped by Captain"
I can't speak for everyone, but for me, I just wanted the gematsufags to shut up about the "leak". Anytime you'd suggest a different character getting in, you'd be met with IT' WASN'T IN THE GEMATSU LEAK THOUGHHHH. Personally, I still want to see Shulk, but fuck that leak. Now everything is open game again. We don't know what to expect anymore and we can get some legitimate surprises now. I'm hyped for that.
Palutena, pacman and mii were obvious and realistic choices, shulk's game didn't managed to sell one million. And gematsu said the day before robin's reveal shulk would be revealed the other day. And Rythmin heaven can get an assist trophy or stage like find mii, wich has a enemy in smash run and not a rep. Also Mii's have the smash icon.
>clone + unique character > blue haired swordmen + chorusfucks + weaabofuck + only 47 characters in smash
No, Chrom probably stole the girl Sakurai was trying to marry while he was playing Fire Emblem Awakening.
/r/ing the F-Zero ending with Chrom instead of Black Shadow
>Including Chrom could have opened up an entirely new moveset for a sword fighter.
Refer to the picture again and you'll see that he is.
r u new to clones
they always have minor differences like that
she and Marth will be like Falco/Fox
there are never any 100% copy-pasted, literally alt-skin clones
Her sword difference aside, you could tell her Dancing Blade was faster, and her Dolphin Slash has a greater horizontal movement
Listen - the leak is dead. If one part of a leak is false then the entire thing isn't reliable anymore. The leak also had errors before that leakfags continued to gloss over but Chrom being a final smash is the final nail in the coffin. Not to mention morning of the announcement, the leaker said it would be Shulk.
Shulk and Chorus Kids are no longer locks for Smash. They both still have a chance. Hopefully you won't cling to a debunked leak as the only hope for them getting in.
I'd rather be unsurprised by unique charcters than unpleasantly surprised by clones
>Now everything is open game again
No it isn't. There are barely any reasonable characters to expect. Given how lucky the Gematsu leaker has been I forsee Shulk, a RH rep, another clone, and that's it
Clone < No clones
Sakurai admitted they're almost out of newcomers. You're still not getting more than 48 or so
Pac-Man is the least deserving fighter on this roster. I have no idea how people complain about any other character not being "deserving enough" when this fucking faggot is in the game.
>VA talking about exciting news
>mentions Dragon Age afterward
>likely VO'ing for the new Xenoblade game
>manado in the music room
>surprise! they're putting Xenoblade music into the game
You Gematsu Defenders are so fuckin' delusional that I suspect we'll be watching all your hilarity for months to come.
People change a lot in a decade and a half. Sakurai's not the same guy he was when he was developing Melee.
The more things change, though, the more things stay the same.
Yeah, it did.
Can you legitimately trust the Gematsu Leak when it's been incorrect five times? Can you honestly, with a straight face? 'cause only the most hardcore and delusional Gematsu Defenders can.
Sorry, but there's only so many times I can handwave clearly incorrect shit when it's been BTFO twice before that on two separate occasions and then three times all at once. I genuinely have no reason to believe that we're getting Shulk and Chorus Men.
Y'all gotta come to grips that he had access to E3 information and then padded the rest of his shit and it came back to bite him.
why doesn't anyone else like clones? more roster slots than we would have got to begin with and more characters get represented. In Melee you would have got Dedede instead of Dr. Mario, Young Link, Ganondorf, Pichu and Roy.
u best be havin' a giggle m8
Pac-Man literally most iconic video game character of all time, how is he not deserving of a spot in Sm4sh?
>mfw people started crying over Lucina
cry more fags
The guy's clearly talking about the new Xenoblade game. Good try, though. Stay mad, Gematsufag.
You people forget that we also got a quite unique Mage/Fighter along with Lucina, so it's not "lack of time" or "laziness". Sakurai knew fans wanted her, and since IN THE GAME SHE'S FROM SHE MODELED HERSELF AFTER MARTH her being a clone makes sense.
We're still getting several more newcomers, including secret unlockables, same as the other three games. Don't start up the waterworks just yet.
Jesus fucking Christ you're a retard. That post isn't saying the leak must still be true, it's saying Shulk still has a huge chance no matter if the leak is right or not, while several morons ITT act like those characters are suddenly confirmed deconfirmed.
Learn to read, spazkid.
>Clone < No clones
One clone won't affect you unlike lliteral whos
>Sakurai admitted they're almost out of newcomers. You're still not getting more than 48 or so
He said the newcomer videos, there will still be unlockable
>denying the hype train
Just get the fuck out faggot, your leak is dead, you aren't getting your gematsufags and there will live hype like japan time
That picture is exactly the type of shit that Sakurai said he doesn't like. He posts one little thing on Twitter or something and people automatically go crazy and assume it has to do with Smash. The rest of that is just some voice actor making vague hints, because there's a TON of highly rated Nintendo games, some that even sold better than Xenoblade, that don't have a rep.
>Lucina is in
>Robin is in
>Cap is back
All is well. Cry more gematsufags.
It's still pretty ridiculous
I feel like everyone was ready to get rid of even the semi-clones like lucas, falco and ganondorf
to have all of their specials luigi-fied and there to no clones, and everyone would have unique move sets, but then sakurai throws in a newcomer who is a pure clone sharing the exact same moves with another character
>Pac-Man literally most iconic video game character of all time,
and Smash Bros. is a fighter featuring Nintendo characters or characters that have history with Nintendo. Is Pac-Man either of those? This isn't fucking MUGEN.
Good third party rep that makes sense.
Good third party rep that makes sense.
Only in because Namco is helping to develop this game and asked for it, likely in an attempt to make him relevant again.
People have pretty much already forgotten he's in the game, people are hyped for Megaman in this game and were hyped for Sonic in Brawl but who the fuck cares about Pac-Man being in this game?
Did you play her game anon?
Of all Fire Emblem girls she is probably the one that isn't defined by her sex. She is like tutorial Lyndis (sub in steppes warrior for knight) up until the epilogue.
The leak is old as fuck.
They changed the character involved to fuck with the rumor.
Its why Lucina is just a reskin and probally why Ike got back in.
Hell, even Chroms dialogue made it sound like a kick to the face
>celebrates a clone
>"I could care less about Lucina." - Me
Cry more, Gematsufag.
Would it surprise ANYONE if Shulk got in? The Weebs and Japs love him equally for some god forsaken reason and if Lucina can get in 'cause waifufags, weebs and Japs love the fuck out of her then Shulk has legitimate chances.
Since the Gematsu Leak got debunked, though, I'm willing to expect the worst.
Oh, you've played it? Tell me how it is. Spoilers, if you will, I'll never play that shit.
Fair point. I have faith he'll make Hades interesting though, if he does get announced.
Confirmed for never arguing for a character not on the Gematsu leak against leakfags
He said that they were 'scrapping the bottom of the barrel' for newcomer trailers. We just got two newcomers in one trailer. Fuck off.
>there will still be unlockable
And guess what? The unrevealed Brawl characters were mostly clones. The writing's on the wall
Enjoy yourhype train or whatever. You'll need it for when the rest of the roster is a letdown
>Why can't I post my delusional wishlist in peace?
They're scrapping the bottom of the barrel alright. Get hype for Toon Zelda
Chromfags deserved it. They've been insisting for months that Chrom was guaranteed and insulted anyone who thought otherwise.
>Would it surprise ANYONE if Shulk got in? The Weebs and Japs love him equally for some god forsaken reason and if Lucina can get in 'cause waifufags, weebs and Japs love the fuck out of her then Shulk has legitimate chances.
So why are you suddenly agreeing with everything I said?
>everyone but you m8
No, seriously. His announcement was underwhelming as fuck. Remember how hype everyone got for Megaman at E3 in 2013? That type of reaction was nowhere to be seen for Pac-Man at this E3.
You now realize that since Lucina is basically a sort-of Time Traveler, this means she actually came from the future to change the past.
And in the original future, Chrom beat Falcon and got into the roster.
So thanks to time travel shenanigans, Lucina changed errything. She is the vidya version of Trunks.
You're missing out!
>And guess what? The unrevealed Brawl characters were mostly clones.
Is this brawl? No.
>Enjoy yourhype train or whatever. You'll need it for when the rest of the roster is a letdown
I am already, Lucas has more possibilities, I finally got one of my most wanted newcomers confirmed and now I just wait for ridley
How is it old as fuck when the leaker had time to change the information. Like I said, he said that Shulk would be the reveal the MORNING OF the announcement. Stop trying to salvage the leak and just accept that its a dud.
Also, it was old it doesn't help the rest of the characters listed alongside Chrom.
>Pac-Man literally most iconic video game character of all time
Not only does that title belong to Mario, but nobody gives a shit about pac-man.
Megaman was revealed at the end of the highly anticipated first ever look of Smash 4, Pac Man was revealed in a closed conference with people reading blogs to keep up with what was happening.
>Pac Man is practically the grandfather of videogames,
and this is relevant to him being in Smash Bros...how?
> anyone with a brain was expecting him in this game even without Namco's involvement after Megaman got in.
Holy shit, reading comprehension. Nowhere did I say I didn't expect him to be in this game. That doesn't change the fact that he was a completely worthless addition and it just boggles my mind how people are complaining about actual Nintendo characters being in, like the ones from Fire Emblem, Rosalina or Palutena but no one is bitching about Pac-Man.
>vidya version of a videogame character
Haven't played the latest FE and I have no idea what game Robin or his sister is from. Is that dude on the ground in the game as a character somehow? Like is he a clone of Lucina like the male/female Robin?
It could go either way, honestly. If he can make Palutena look fun to play then I'd imagine he'd do Hades justice.
My bets are on him being another element, like a boss or announcer. Man, I'd kill for a Hades announcer, that'd be friggin' great. Loved his VA in Uprising.
>So why are you agreeing with me?
It's not obvious? I'm not naive. Sakurai's going to pander to the Japs first and foremost, and again, they love Shulk, so it won't surprise me one bit.
At the same time, is it that much of a stretch to expect Xenoblade music? Again, the picture's CLEARLY posted from the music room, which they've shown off during the Greninja Direct. It could've simply been there for inspiration or something, and Sakurai's not typically the one to post 'hints'. It's anyone's guess, though.
>Is this brawl? No.
>It'll be different this time I swear!
>now I just wait for ridley
The delusion is more serious than I thought with this one
I'll always be grateful for the month we had without you fucks ruining Smash threads
I'm not the one stupid enough to hope for Isaac to be in the game
Well, you must have known that they were insisted on those three being the last newcomers and wouldn't hear anything else.
I'm hoping for K. Rool as well and he has a great chance.
>And who are you to determine who "deserves" to be in the game?
It's been a hot button topic throughout the entire development of this game. How many times have you seen someone bitch about a new addition to this game not deserving enough to be in the game?
I just don't get how people are making these complaints for actual Nintendo characters but aren't making the same ones for Pacman when if you're going to complain about ANY character not being deserving it's him, because he's only in the game based on very flimsy reasoning.
>watching Gematsu Defenders go full backpedal
That's my favorite part
>like rayman a lot since i was a kid
>want him in smash but know it will never happen
>see this abomination
Atleas ridley has more chances than
shulk and chorus men
The Gematsu leak is dead and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it but shit around in every Smash thread.
Robin is the protagonist, he can be male or female so that's why you can choose the gender in Smash Bros. too. The dude on the ground is Chrom, Lucina's father.
They look so close in age because the latest Fire Emblem has a time travel mechanic that involves Child Units, so that Lucina is from the future
pretty easy way to tell who is underages around here. Anyone who claims Pac-man isn't the most iconic videogame character worldwide and of all agegroups literally can't be old enough to post.
Well, I get you, but I'm not complaining about anyone.
He doesn't deserve to be in. He's not a Nintendo character. He didn't debut on a Nintendo console. He's not popular. And he's got no affiliation with Nintendo one way or the other.
The only reason he's still around is because Namco keeps digging up his corpse every 5 years.
>only skyward sword shit is getting in this game
>HAHAHA YOU FAGS WILL NOT ONLY GET YOUR OBVIOUS PICKS BUT THERE'LL BE EVEN MORE CHARACTERS TOO
Wow, I feel so blown out right now.
And what garantees you that metroid will only get stuff from other M? Brawl got stuff from fusion, prime and zero mission
>He's not popular
He's more well known than fucking Mario
Where Hades just kinda lazily slaps and punches at the stage, shoots lasers at it, just kinda mucking around with the fighters. Then when he's tired of it he inhales and swallows the stage.
Afterward you're assaulted by a charging Hades' heart and a number of Underworld enemies sucked in during the transition. If someone defeats the heart, it explodes as stage boss elements are want to do and the stage - and its fighters - are coughed up.
From that point the stage resets its cycle.
Wouldn't surprise me one bit.
>implying Sakurai would drastically change his development cycle in a kneejerk reaction to the leak
Uh huh. Pic related.
>And he's got no affilation with Nintendo one way or the other.
People are STILL hyped about Megaman. When I went to that thing at Best Buy literally every match had a Megaman in it and I'm not using that for emphasis. The setting would only matter for the initial reaction. Megaman being in the game gets people excited, Pac-Man's reception has been pretty lukewarm.
Because Japs actually liked all the fanservice in Other M
He's already a stage boss. You're just coping with it by taking your frustration out on people who had reasonable expectations for the game
The most iconic video game character ever didn't deserve to be in? Are you shitting in my cereal right now?
It would explain why he added an incredibly obvious clone, instead of a alt costume for Marth.
I bet she originally was an alt costume, he added one or two moves, and made up that bullshit rule in the pic of the day to make it seem legit.
>People who won't actually buy the game recognize him, that's enough justification for him to be in Smash Bros.
Very few people who want to actually play this game wanted him as a playable fighter. I guess if Halo becomes a multiplatform title, but still never ends up on a Nintendo console Master Chief would still have justification to be in Smash Bros, because he's recognizable.
Pac-Man's been on plenty of Nintendo consoles you mouth breathing child.
Pac-Man Vs was even made by Shigeru Miyamato and his A-team, and they got Charles Martinet to do voice work for the game. But you might not have heard of this game since it was made before you were born.
>The most iconic video game character ever didn't deserve to be in?
If he doesn't have anything to do with Nintendo? No, he doesn't.
This isn't MUGEN. It's as stupid as Snake being in Brawl, and I fucking love Snake but he shouldn't have been in that game. Being in because Kojima begged Sakurai for him to be in the game because his son wanted it is very flimsy reasoning for him being included.
You just don't understand the impact Pac Man had. Pac Man has had games on Nintendo consoles. He's arguably the most famous gaming icon, practically in his own league. Master Chief is literally nothing compared to him and Mario.
>Pac-Man's been on plenty of Nintendo consoles you mouth breathing child.
He's not known for being on Nintendo consoles, he's an arcade hero.
When I think Pac-Man I certainly don't think "Nintendo".
Yellow Ghost from find mii is an enemy too, is there a find mii rep? No, only a stage, and the mii's have the smash icon
Pac-Man is what inspired Nintendo to go into the arcade business. They'd still be making hanafuda cards otherwise.
Also "on consoles." What?
Nintendo didn't start with the NES. They started with arcade games like Donkey Kong
Same could be said for a certain third party character that only got in to advertise an upcoming game on a then-doomed competing console. There have been 5 Metal Gear games on Nintendo consoles to this date. Pac-Man has 5 games on the NES/Famicom alone.
it applies, get fucked gematsufag
Find mii has a crown as icon
>Is there a Find Mii rep?
Umm... Yeah? It's your Mii.
>You just don't understand the impact Pac Man had.
I do, but it was decades ago. He's barely relevant now. Him simply being recognizable because of something he did many years ago isn't enough justification for him to be in this game. Sure, my dad recognizes him, is he going to bitch if he wasn't ever included in a Smash Bros. game? Of course not, because he's never going to actually play the game anyways.
Him having a few Nintendo games doesn't mean anything, he isn't known as a Nintendo character or having any affiliation with Nintendo. You even mentioned him being recognizable, but when people recognize him do they think of Nintendo? No, they don't. They think of the time they played him at an arcade.
Pac-Man is relevant to Nintendo simply by being the most relevant character to video games period. A true icon, worthy of standing among other true icons. It's not a stretch to say that before there was Mario, there was Pac-Man.
you really don't understand the impact Pac-Man had on video games, and especially on Nintendo.
Miyamoto attributes the creation of Mario to Pac-Man. Look it up. One of his famous quotes is "My favorite video game character is not Mario, it's Pac-Man."
Yes, you pointed out the Pac-Man example from the previous game.
Good choices for third party reps
Bad choices for third party reps.
And Metal Gear is one of my favorite series too.
You're seriously fucking arguing right now that an icon of an unrelated character deconfirms another character harder than it is confirmed by an enemy from its own game.
I mean WOW.
I agree he's not iconic AS A NINTENDO character, but he is (or was) an iconic game character. Unlike Snake, Pac-Man has had dozens of games on Nintendo consoles, but Pac-Man is the last person I would think of if someone mentioned "third party character who's had games on Nintendo consoles". I'd sooner call off the Little Samson guy before Pac-man.
>People still believing in leaks
You retards don't know how secretive is Nintendo all these years?
Lucina was chosen because Sakurai said he want's to have more female characters this time around.
For a good while Sonic was only on the gamecube, even if they were ports of dreamcast games.
Then the downwards slope he was in became a cliff and we got shitty multiplat games till unleashed which was mediocre at best.
I definitely associate him with Nintendo more now, as someone who grew up playing genesis. Sega's consoles have been dead for a very long time.
Miyamoto frequntly states he would never have been in the vidya business if not for Pac-Man. It is Miyamoto who put him in the game.
Pac-Man is a huge part of Nintendo's story and transformation from a toy company to a game company
>you really don't understand the impact Pac-Man had on video games
No, I do. You just don't appear to understand that it's very flimsy reasoning for him to appear in this game for characters that are either created by Nintendo or have a significant attachment to them. Going by your logic Pac-Man could be included in literally any game regardless of how well he fits or not.
>Gematsufags so blown the fuck out they have to shit on Pacman to set up a smokescreen while they damage control
Significant attachment to them?
You mean the character that inspired them to go into the games industry? The character that Miyamoto frequently states is an inspiration for his characters?
Sure not significant.
He and Mario and had a huge rivalry in the SNES/Genesis era. People dreamed of them being in the same game and beating the shit out of each other for years. He was a great choice. Snake? Not so much.
Your whole argument hinges on the assumption that the smash run enemies represent stages, not characters.
The shield ghosts are in smash run because Miis are playable, not because there's a stage from a Mii game with a mysteriously wrong icon.
When Nintendo was the leading name in home consoles, Nintendo would 'friendzone' anyone they wanted at any time, which taught these companies to wise up and try harder. Then Sony comes along like the jock that fucks anything that moves, and then suddenly Nintendo is nowhere near as significant as they once were.
Calling other people faggots makes autistic dicks rock hard.
Calling other people autistic dick rock hard makes you a faggot.
>Pac-Man is irrelevant and Miyamoto makes up bullshit all the time.
This would've sounded plausible if you didn't say this
>He didn't even create Donkey Kong, Rare did
If you wanted to be more legit, you should've used Ikegami Tsushinki. since they were one of Nintendo's contract developers, and did in fact program the original DK.
I'm not defending any leak here. I'm arguing against bandwagoning Ridleykids who act like the Lucina reveal is some sort of magical "everything from this point on is debunked and won't be in Smash" ding dong bannu line. I'm arguing that the remaining "leaked" characters still have a good shot at being in the roster due to circumstances that have nothing to do with the leak, just like how most of the other "leaked" characters were fairly obvious guesses.
