>Playing Mario Kart 8 with friends
>Pick him fairly often
>At some point smash conversation comes up while playing Roy
>bring up that Roy should be in smash, jokingly implying that Roy Koopa gets in and not FE Roy
>Few months later
>These leaks happen
>Bowser Jr can be subbed for every Koopaling
>Roy from FE is not in the game
>BUT ROY KOOPA IS
This is the weirdest, most laughably enjoyable feeling. Who else maining a koopa in smash?
I probably won't be maining them, but Ludwig is always my got to Koopaling.
>mfw Larry fan
>No one likes Larry
We only have Vaanrose's word, but he's where every screenshot and video came from.
He also described several unrevealed newcomers' movesets in a fair amount of correct detail, so I think Koopaling alts looks pretty good right now.
Also, Alph alts for Olimar, get hype
I don't have the screencap, but it's an image of a Smashboards post with a quote of him detailing movesets and such. Someone here has it, it looks like it was screened from an iPhone.
Gotcha. I didn't catch that, I got to see the few leaked vids a few hrs before they got taken down. But that's really exciting. I wonder if they can and will include all seven koopalings, or maybe some more popular ones (based off MK8)? Thanks for the enlightenment, Im double stoked for smash now
Anon, I fucking love Larry
He was my most wanted newcomer, but I had no hope for him. Now that he's in I'm excited as shit
really reallylike Roy.
>mfw Sakurai actually does this
>and everyone on /v/ mains koopalings
Roy's our boy
>mfw there is finally a Paper Mario stage but it's from the game we try to pretend doesn't exist
Mimi turning into a spider, this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zy8fpe4Emis , giant Luigi, and that nerd Chameleon are the only things I remember about SPM. I should play it again sometime.
>too fucking big
They can be scaled down.
Whoa, this is objectively wrong
Iggy, Lemmy, Baby Bowser, Bowser Jr. Kamek, Wendy
Roy, Morton, Ludwig, Kammy
From here, "good" can be broken down further:
Is anybody else annoyed they changed Iggy's design to make him look so logn now? He'd be my favorite if he didn't look so disgusting now...
dem rainbow mohawks man...
As it stands now for me Roy<Lemmy<Wendy<Ludwig<Larry<Iggy<Morton
It obviously will be to match Samus in style, like how Link, Zelda, Sheik and Ganondorf are still using there TP designs.
Also this Ridley solves the "proportions" problem by being much more muscular.
>Paper Mario could actually get his own moveset for one
But that's exactly why he isn't getting in anon. Dr. Mario only takes a new model and some number fudging
and hopefully a new DownB.But Paper Mario would take actual effort to implement.
I can't stop listening to it.
Because Larry and the other Koopalings are alts for Bowser Jr. rather than being counted as separate characters by the game. Beating Classic with any of them will get you Bowser Jr.'s trophy. My question is whether the announcer will still refer to them all as "BOWSER JR.," or have unique announcements for each of them.
This is the real best list
the koopalings that aren't wendy
Kamek, Pom Pom, Kammy
Wendy, Boom Boom, Baby Bowser
The Koopa Kids from Mario Party 1-7
>still getting to experience TTYD for the first time
Peanut butter and jealous.
Seriously. If there was a way to wipe memories of games you've played I probably wouldn't have bought a new game in years. There's so many that had that "magic" fade when the hymen of exploration and wonder was broken
How the fuck was this game so good?
And it isn't even nostalgia, I played it for the first time like two years ago.
Why does he have no good fanart.
The koopalings are really underrated as characters, in general. At least Mario Kart 8 has brought some new content.
Ludwig koopa is objectively the best koopa.
Best Boss fights.
Best knows magic, hover jump, AND that silly turtle thingy everyone else can do.
Kamek is a close second, Iggy is a solid third.
