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.

Well from the sounds of it there's only one other series that has Smash Run enemies but no other representation so far. And that series is Ice Climber.

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?

>>253358119
They didn't confirm that nigger either, so further proves my point.

>>253358481
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.

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

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.

I can't speak for everyone, but for me, I just wanted the gematsufags to shut up about the "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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

>>253363362
>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.

>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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I'm just saying the autistic are the only ones that would go to such lengths to defend their anonymous opinion to a bunch of text on a screen.

nobody cares about the arcade DK he's not even relevant anymore.

all the Smash games have the DKC one

Underage detected?
They're a pack of cards with flowers instead of spades, hearts, clubs, and aces.

>Pac-Man is what inspired Nintendo to go into the arcade business. They'd still be making hanafuda cards otherwise.
That isn't true at all. Nintendo was making video games before Pac Man existed
>>
>>253348932
What was/is Japan time?
>>
>>253368318
Yeah but actual mascot games didn't really exist until Pac-Man. Games had really simple player sprites.

Pac-Man set the stage for actual characters in games and was the inspiration for Mario

Basically when the picture of the day for smash comes out. For Brawl that's the Smash Bros. Dojo website update, for Smash 4 its Sakurai's Miiverse page.
>>
>>253347232
Sakurai probably orchestrated the Gematsu leaks in the first place

c'mon guys, just ctrl+s to spoiler

So what if Lucina gets Morgan as her final smash, because Robin gets Chrom as his?
>>
>>253370070
What if Lucina gets naked for her final smash
>>
>>253370070
why would she get Morgan?
>>
>>253370316

Because

Robin->Chrom (Parents).
Lucina->Morgan(Daughters)
>>
>>253370521
but Robin can be married to Lucina too.
>>
>>253370521
It's not confirmed which Robin it is - it looks like it's left ambiguous.
>>
>>253362497

Pac Man is shiggys favorite vidya character, and Shiggys word is law at Nintendo
>>
I'd rather have Chrom than the clone we have now. This is the first time since Wonder Red that Sakurai blew me the fuck out

Robin probably has no affiliation to Lucina in this game. Not husband or uncle as the male and not mother or auntie as the female.
>>
>>253373204
Yeah, Robin is the best thing that could have happened, but Lucina leaves a terrible taste in my mouth

I was screaming at the screen with joy during Captain Falcon's reveal followed by Robin's.

I was eating at an apple at the time and I spit it onto my keyboard in shock.
>>
>>253373351
Actually I fucked up, she can only be Lucina's mother as a female, not her Aunt. Chrom has two sisters and no brother.

Did Chrom/Captain Falcon also get a heart-virus and die horribly a year or two after the fight?

I think that's who you're talking about unless you're talking about Tyrone.

Also, what's with everyone calling everything a semen demon all of a sudden? Did I miss something?
