So the game will be out in a matter of weeks. How are you guys going to deal with leaks and spoilers?
>Gematsu is probably wrong
Fuck. Shulk and Chorus Men would have perfectly topped off the newcomers. Now we're probably not going to get anymore newcomers from existing franchises to make room for more shitty side characters.
Too bad there's not a world wide release. It's only 2+ weeks difference but too bad.
I hope there's at least 1-2 secret characters no one will be expecting but I'll probably accidentally see it while passing on v or some sites.
>yfw baby bro can be mario, luigi, wario or waluigi costumed
>mario clone but with stork for its up special and crying for one of the others
I really hope we get an explicit Ridley deconfirmation during a pic of the day and not just deconfirmation when the roster is leaked. I want it all concentrated and focused on one day. I want to be waiting up till 2 AM on /ssbg/ and then see the first post about it have 10,000 replies. Then I want to go to /v/ and scroll through ridley thread after ridle thread.
Eh, that's easy enough to avoid, since no OP is gonna start with "So I unlocked [X] today" followed by "by going into the forest and doing [Y]." Just by avoiding Smash threads you should be fine.
It would take a strange type of autism (or troll) to do such a specific thing.
>two reps from franchises without reps
>the two most deserving franchises at this point
>one is a cool anime swordsmen that japanese people and western male children will love
>the other is a cutesy but still neutral enough group of fighters with a rhythm based moveset who will appeal to people who like cute characters
If we're getting 2 more newcomers then they're the perfect choices, from a marketing perspective, from a "Nintendo All-star" perspective, from a gameplay perspective, pretty much from any perspective except an autistic whiney internet faggot screaming and crying because their favorite character didn't get in. I bet you think WFT was a bad inclusion too.
I figure that with all the reveal trailers, pics of the day, and internet nature towards leaks around vidya releases, I won't have the sense of wonder about Smash's roster as I had as a child, so I might as well embrace the leaks and start planning my mains and looking for locals around Sussex.
>>the two most deserving franchises at this point
Not really I'd rather hav seomthing from Advance Wars. And I guess I'd be fine with Shulk but seriously fuck chorus kids I'd rather have any other RH rep. And no actually I fucking love WFT, she's my favorite newcomer and likely new main
This. Sakurai already knew the game would end up being spoiled no matter what anyway and you'd have to be completely secluded from the internet to not know a thing from the game since Smash is pretty much mentioned everywhere.
I'll probably be looking at the spoilers and stuff but I won't look up how to unlock characters and stages which will probably make me try everything in the game to try and see what'll unlock characters and stuff.
I want him confirmed JUST for /v/'s reaction.
Unfortunately, it's looking as though he'll just be a mere stage hazard. /v/ will explode, but not for months like if Ridley DID get in.
>not having a region free piracy enabled 3ds
its liek u guise like waiting 1 month
I actually think it might be worse if he isn't in. There will be compilation images posted for months to come.
Though I also think at this point it's just trolls arguing back and forth more than truly invested people, for the sake of preparing compilation images.
I wouldn't argue that Karate Joe has that much more potential than the Chorus Kids or any other Rhythm Heaven character. I mean, there are the punches and kicks from his minigame(s), but they'd only cover a few tilts and a smash or two, and the rest would have to be made up. Honestly, I feel like they could make a moveset based around various things from RH (a Crop Stomp move that launches one of those horrible turnips, summoning a mandrill to vomit a golf ball, etc.) and plaster it onto one of a number of RH characters - Karate Joe, Marshal, Rhythm Girl, a monkey, etc. - and it'd work just fine with only minor adjustments for each. So I'll be happy so long as we get some sort of RH character, regardless of who it is.
I don't understand why it's not actually. People have been saying it's because of trophy text being translated, by Pokemon X/Y was completely a completely text-based game.
I'm fucked gais, I just so happened to recently have bricked my 3DS
I had a bottle of shampoo in my backpack together with the 3DS, in a hurry I emptied it onto my bed, the bottle opened and poured all over the 3DS, which I didn't notice at the time, when I came back it was soaked in a bit, I opened it and it was on the motherboard, too
Cleaned it all up and assembled it back together, but it remains ded.
I knew I wouldn't be the only one thinking about this.
I'm just not gonna go on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube or 4chan until I have the game myself and have all the characters. I don't want to spoil who's in and who isn't. I want to have a sense of wonderment like I did when I played the first Smash as a youngun.
So basically I'm just not gonna go on the internet. I don't have a smartphone so I don't have to worry about seeing stuff on other social media sites. It'll be fine though, I'm gonna have college to keep me occupied til then.
I ordered a DS Lite so I can play Advance Wars
I wasn't playing that much on the 3DS XL anyways, but certainly looking forward to Smash, I'm now considering if I'm getting a used XL,
mite as well get the 3DS successor on day 1
Here's the leak in it's entirety
Someone was able to get in contact with her awhile ago to see if she could leak info about the new Smash. She said she had info but refused as she's still pretty bitter about how FAQS treated her.
Man I'm gonna try and avoid spoilers, but I gotta know if he's in or not.
>No target smash
What the FUCK Sakurai
A shadow and implication with not a single thing clearing up the confusion for a four months since said shadow shown up proves to he's most likely a hazard? When things like Prince Sable that were obviously nonplayable got tweeted or explained rather quickly that they were not in fact playable? Not saying Ridley is in for sure but it just doesn't seem like there's any obvious conclusion about it. There's the face value conclusion and the why is this unlike anything else conclusion.
When dealing with Sakurai it's stupid to think you can predict him so I just have no fucking clue. Wish I did, I'd just like to know what he is already. No coyness, no shadow shit, just discuss him already.
How the fuck do you spoil smash bros
If it was a simultaneous release I'd be worried about spoilers. With a release weeks apart spoilers are inevitable, so in a way that's a relief and I can just give up on avoiding spoilers.
Please Sakurai, please make these last two weeks being nothing but charter announcements.
>Brawl release in Japan
>decide to leave the internet until the NA release
>for 20 days I know nothing of what newcomers or veterans returning
>my faggot friend comes and tells me everything including ROB ruining the entire point of me not using the internet
>I rush him but hes too big and pins me down
>he forces me to suck his dick
>after he cums he calls me a faggot and turns me over and sticks my GBA in my asshole
I never played my GBA again
>thinks a party game is a fighting game
>24/7 arguing over what characters are going to be in
>people constantly begging for the next reveal
>tons of speculation
>when the time comes for everything to be shown people are going to hide from it
You guys are such fucking retards.
>the possibility of my mains getting cut and half of the characters I wanted in getting cut is about to be revealed in weeks<
Holy jesus fucktits, Snake is not in, you lumbering mongoloid asscrack.
I'm going to try not to read them so I can actually have a fun experience unlocking characters and playing through the levels, etc... SO ill probably have to stay off of /v/ and /vg/ or maybe 4chan in general.
No fucks given

Sucks but it will be back so who cares
Can die in a fire

>thinking Lucas should be cut
bro you misunderstood. he shouldn't be cut
I don't think he should be cut for gameplay reasons, but I don't think Nintendo's gonna advertise a franchise that's mostly not on their systems any more than Brawl already did.
Ness, Will return. All my money.
Snake *now Big Boss* (thanks to 3DS Metal Gear Solid: Snake Eater 3D)
We got 2 weeks 3 days.
Did Konami want anything to do with the Wii? I mean, Snake isn't in, but that's the not the reason.
Snake's appearance in Brawl came at the price of a lot of MGS4 references, so don't expect Snake to return unless there'll also be a stage where I'M NUCLEAAAR is playing and waterboardings are being carried out in the background.
I think they're good with all the characters they already announced. How many more can fit in a 3DS card, anyway?
>Direct happens, shows off new features and stuff, ends
>"oh, by the way" Sakurai says
>"we know that fans in the west will not be able to obtain this game for some time after the Japanese release, and could potentially be spoiled by hidden content. however, we have a solution to this problem."
>"On September 13th, the entire character roster will be updated on the Super Smash Bros website on a special "hidden character" page. Those who wish to view all of the hidden characters can if they please, while others who like surprises can avoid it."
Yeah, but the upcoming games won't have a story mode like Brawl. Also some people got problems with the Brawl disc. I don't think they'll use the double layer disc for the Wii U version.
How would that help anything? Someone who doesn't want to see that now gets spoiled by some ad for a kotaku article or something and even in the sanctity of /v/ we get spammed with a bunch of
>SO I'M NOT GONNA USE THE SPOILER TAG GUYS WHY IS CHIBI ROBO IN THE GAME
Well, the 3DS version is coming out a couple of months before the Wii U version, and it's been confirmed that the two will have the same roster, so you'll have some time to decide.
>WE GOT 2 WEEKS 3 DAYS
>WE GOT 2 WEEKS 3 DAYS
>WE GOT 2 WEEKS 3 DAYS
>WE GOT 2 WEEKS 3 DAYS
Well as soon as I see the full roster I can decide. It should be around like october 5th at the latest right? Theres gonna be that one guy that just grinds out matches to get all the characters.
change Ness final smash to PK Rocken and Lucas final smash to PK Love. YES!
Maining the fuck out of Li'l Sebastian.
It wouldn't do anything to prevent people from getting spoiled, because dumbasses on the internet can't comprehend spoiler tags and shitty clickbait sites put things like this in their headlines. As for preventing rumors and leaks, why bother? Once the game comes out in Japan, plenty of people in Japan will be able to collectively confirm the roster by the end of the day. Hell, we'll probably know the roster a few days beforehand thanks to at least one of the leaks proving true, but this would be concrete proof. So it wouldn't serve any practical purpose at all.
There's no way. The first things that got spoiled when Brawl was released was the ending chapters of Subspace Emissary. Uprising got away with it because no Japs felt like leaking it.
I would guess a submenu in Smash or Games&More
For some reason I imagine the Wii U version having this over the 3DS. Wii U needs someone unique to sell it other than HD and stages
I'm going to fucking soak them up
>worrying about leaks and spoilers
>for a fighting game
>mfw I see Loss even though I know it isn't Loss
>Getting reported and banned!
>And it's gonna be the most unbelievable one.
>the real leak ends up being the most boring one
I think people need to remember the revealed newcomers are always the ones most appealing to a general audience, because they need to dominate the pre-release advertising with the characters that have built-in popularity, to help the game look good. Secret newcomers can be neat like Mr. Game & Watch, but it's never going to be Snake or anyone else that was too important to keep secret.
>yfw all characters have different personal target tests for every difficulty
The only secret newcomers for Brawl were Wolf, ROB, Toon Link, and Lucario. I don't believe any leaker but people shouldn't expect the confirmed roster to just double or anything.
Pyrosphere isn't in the 3DS. For all we know Ridley could be playable in a WiiU exclusive mode that lets a 5th players use boss characters. Yellow Devil, Ridley, Master and Crazy Hand. Maybe even Tabuu could have a Subspace themed stage
