Pic of the day hype.
Veteran? Direct info? Absolutely nothing?
OH MY GOD IT'S KIRBY WITH PAC MAN ABILITY JESUS CHRIST
>NOT A FUCKING HAT
I AM MAD
characters are only announced in Nintendo Directs (which there isn't one of tonight) or in a special video that Soccer Eye announced on Miiverse a few days in advance. a veteran is the most you could possibly get tonight, and even that's only probably like a 10% chance.
HE'S FINALLY GETTING DECONFIRMED TONIGHT.
PLEASE SAKURAI I NEED TO STOP HOPING
I learning to deal with the fact that Shulk is not going to be playable. That way, I won't be completely bummed out when he's deconfirmed, while having mad fangasms when he actually shows up.
pacman isn't in smash bros you fuck, he's so irrelevant and busy being a meme
Its gonna be nothing special, like always.
I do hope I'm wrong though, but its best to have no expectations for these so you arent let down every freaking day.
>Demoting a fully playable character to an assist, leading to be a huge waste of development time and resources
Even if Sakurai WAS upset because of the leaks, you'd have to be dumb to believe he'd do that to punish the 20 people who saw this leak amongst 500 other fake ones.
I feel the same way every goddamn night.
>Stay up til 2am-ish waiting for the POTD every weeknight
>Am continuously disappointed
I understand he can't spoil the whole game with meaty reveals every night, but fuck.
All I ask for is a -semi- interesting POTD.
Even something like "Here's the Final Destination version of *Insert stage here*" would be neat.
dude just let it go, and here I thought gematsu apologizers where bad, I never thought someone would apologize for random /v/ "leakers"
at least gematsu got a lot right up until being BTFO, but everyone's let him go by now
>tfw Shulk and Chrom aren't in BECAUSE of the Gematsu leak.
>Staying up to see a picture of something we've probably already seen by now
What am I doing
Why do I allow myself to hope
Someone make this worth my time, I'm getting a 3DS but I'm on a budget. Is the 2DS worth it if I actually want to carry it around or should I consider springing for the XL?
You understood it wrong. Sakurai was annoyed that Brawl's story videos went up on YouTube straight away, spoiling it for people who hadn't played the game.
Nothing to do with leaks or "cutting".
Are you fucking retarded?
Brawl's cutscenes where what was leaked yeears ago, and they all ended up in game
After that sakurai decided to not have a cutscene story mode like SSE in smash 4, they never once made cutscenes for it
that budget allegedly went to reveal trailers
As far as I can see (at least on Smashboards, can't check NeoFAG), he did some damage control after the Shulk "leak" ended up being wrong and hasn't said jack shit since. I think he knew the jig was up, it was all probably a stunt to give Gematsu more traffic.
I know I've been late on Smash brothers, but do they also have some sort of schedule for releasing newcomer trailers and other veterans. I see the 3DS version is coming soon so surely if they want 40 - 50 characters they'd start announcing them a lot sooner.
Maybe it'll be Luigi adusting his nose again!
>no Yoshi stages
>no F-Zero stages
>no new DK stages
>no new Kirby stages
>no 3DS Metroid stage
>no 3DS Star Fox stage
>no 3DS Pikmin stage
>no 3DS Wii Fit stage
>no stages for series whose characters aren't confirmed yet, so no Mother, Wario, Ice Climber, or G&W stages
a stage reveal is pretty likely for pics of the day lately.
Oddly enough, he started a pattern with the last 2 trailers dates.
Robin, Lucina & C. Falcon - 14th of July
Mii Fighters, Pac-Man & Palutena - 11th of June
3 days, predicting next one to be in 17th of August.
>yfw you have to play chess with Sakurai
Good luck predicting
just keep f5ing on the catalog until you see a bunch of butthurt
I do too anon, but the chances seem worse every day. The argument that Sakurai has never said a characters name before being revealed doesn't even hold up anymore, just look at Meta Knight.
>Keep hearing that Kirby will most likely be top tier in the new game
>Can't bring myself to believe it
After more than a decade of playing this character I've just sort of resigned myself to the fact that Kirby will never be anywhere near top tier again
Same with Bowser. I always loved playing as him, I'm so glad he got a buff
Eh, patterns really don't mean anything. He's said the names and even shown veterans before officially confirming them (Ness, Toon Link) and once showed off a newcomer as a random enemy before confirming them (ROB)
His chances are still probably shit, but with how many left turns Sakurai takes, I'm not ruling anything out.
Ridley from the Metroid series is the stage boss on the Wii U stage, Pyrosphere. Watch out for his dangerous attacks! Of course, he can be defeated if players focus their efforts.
>it's not even midnight PST
>the fucking time Sakurai usually updates
It's only been really early the past couple of days and those were really unusual
It's kinda nostalgic, though. I'm having fond flashbacks to Japan time, when everyone stayed up til 3 and then we'd get something silly and everyone would get a little huffy but it was all in good fun...
Well shit /v/.
He did it. He simply did it. He confirmed the best reptilian pirate as playable
Anybody else wish that both versions released simultaneously?
It's still going to be crazy for the Wii U version at launch since it's the "true version" but I feel the 3DS release will slightly dampen the hype.
You should be happy that the game you enjoyed got two new representatives, regardless of whether or not they're the exact ones you wanted.
I really sympathize with Isaac and K. Rool fans (when they aren't pairing themselves up with Ridley fans). Those guys are just asking for their series to get a bit more exposure.
Having played both at the Best Buy event, I can say I am sufficently hype for both and glad we get to the 3DS to hold me over during the wait.
Smash 5, after Super Paper Mario 2 for Wii U (commercial flop, but pretty well liked, even among people who didn't like SPM) and Paper Mario for the next handheld (return to the series' roots - sells pretty well and is decently liked, but considered to be a bit too pedestrian).
>the riddler and kruella de ville are both reptile pirates
are they brothers?
That's just bound to happen when you have two versions releasing at separate times.
I think it would have been better to space them apart a bit more (and have the 3DS version actually be released in Summer) but after watching the Comic Con footage, it's clear there's still a lot of polishing that needs to be done.
What if your unlockable costumes were other characters?
>About to say "Fuck it, I'll go to bed"
>Remember pic related
"What if" man, "what if"
>It was a morning where nothing special was expected
>Sakurai during late post in /v/'s mind
"Keep them waiting! They need to suffer a little more before the mega ultimate secret newcomer reveal today"
"Oh whoops, I almost forgot to put up a picture"
>reveal POTD like 2 hours early 2 days in a row
>now an hour later than the usual and like 3 hours later than the past 2 days
>it's going to be nothing
Just a reminder that a starting character who has always been a starting character since their inclusion in smash has never become unlockable.
Therefore if Wario, Lucas, Ice Climbers or Metaknight aren't shown before the game drops in Japan they're gone.
Wait, is tonight supposed to be special? I was around for Japan Time, and I don't know what the fuck's going on, but you guys are hyping me up.
why did they choose to make Wiley look like this, he looks like he's gonna cry
>no picture today because samurai is mourning robin williams
>tfw its going to be a 3ds screen shot on some stage we've seen before showing off something slightly new , like how an item's function has changed.
Japan time was a one of a kind moment where everything was magical and the rage, tears and joy could never be contained anywhere else on the internet.
Anyone logged on to Miiverse?
Because that's Dr. Wily's natural state.
All this delusion.
People can't just accept facts.
Oh well. Don't come crying when Lucas is cut.
Though I fully expect Metaknight Wario & Ice Climbers to be shown before the game is released.
I tried to warn you people but you don't want to listen.
>we've decided to inmortalize Robin Williams as a trophy in smash, unfortunately because of this we had to cut Ridley from the game
>here's a picture of what Ridley would've looked like if he was playable
>but he's not
>R.I.P Miss Doubtfire
>tfw became a lucinafag after the reveal
how could this happen
>Icons have never been created JUST for stages, Player 1 is confirmed as playable.
Call me a nostalgia fag, but if they brought back the Fighting Polygon Team using the same models and made low-poly models for the rest of the roster, it would make me the happiest person on Earth.
Why do you do this every thread? What if you're wrong? People
including methen will ridicule you for being so wrong and for being a faggot. And then you will kill yourself later.
>Past two days, PotD has been up early
>Today it is up later than usual
>tfw you wanted chrom in
>tfw you also mained Lucas in Brawl
>tfw you're anticipating the next big deconfirm to absorb tears through osmosis but ridley and krool are possibly next
>yfw is a photo of Zelda crying, with an emotive message about Robin Williams
That's horrifying. I actually have met people that thought Melee was the first, and actually gave me shit when I told them there was a Smash game on the N64. Fuckers accused me of being "that one kid".
>this thread will reach the bump limit before Sakurai updates Miiverse
>mfw the Pokemon Trainer reveal was exactly 7 years ago today
Still got all the old pics from that day too. Man time flies.
>he confirms Squirttle and Ivysaur together tonight
>lucas gets cut
>all Earthbound kids are condensed into Ness in the same way Villager's costumes are different villagers
I took a break and played vidya for 2 hours expecting to come back and see the POTD in this thread
Instead we're all just foaming at the mouth, waiting for Sakurai to disappoint us.
or maybe he won't disappoint us...
how does it feel to be
edgyand not campyShaggy?
