clearly marketing for Xenoblade 3DS and X

he's literally who
>>
Both. New Nintendo IP, and getting it exposure. Better than Roy advertising his game by being a waste of space.
>>
>>267497104
>Only new character-based IP of the Wii era
>each new installment of Smash focuses on celebrating the previous gen

>Shulk
>ever not getting in

I said it from the start, he was always a shoe-in. XCX or not.
>>
Marketing

Not that I'm complaining in this particular instance.
>>
Is he from Xenoblade or XenoGear?
>>
Both, he is a first party character from an unrapresented serie that was requested in japan and even here by some people, and he is always perfect in this period in order to promote the other games.
>>
Smash is basically a marketing ploy, anyway.
>>
>>267497227
He turned out to be pretty neat tho

Some cool attacks, able to give himself buffs, a swordfighter who isn't a marth clone again. Better than Lucina.
>>
Who cares?
>>
Sakurai stated that he already had the characters planned.
>>
>>267497361
Xenoblade, has almost nothing to do with other Xeno_____ games except for having the same director.
>>
What's up with all the Shulk hate nowadays?
Roy was just marketing, Shulk is both

>when it finally comes out, it's regarded as one of the best Wii games out and one of the best action RPGs ever
>"HURR LITERALLY WHO IS IN SMASH"

I will never understand you people.
>>
Both.
He is from Nintendo's new RPG series, and gives the chance for new IPs to get representation.
The game was liked in Japan and got a lot of exposure in the US due to Project Rainfall.
But he got an unique moveset with a great gimmick, which means he wasn't just forced in.
>>
>>267497613
Operation Rainfall was surprisingly niche. That's why Gamestop only got like one shipment of the game.
>>
>>267497613
It was a long time ago, and let me tell you, most people on /v/ just don't care about JRPGs, considering it's weab shit and complaining about that.
>>
Marketing. I say this as someone who loves Xenoblade; it has not earned a Smash rep yet. He's just in the game so that when the New 3DS comes out and only has one game (the Xenoblade port), kids will look at it and go "I know that guy! He's the guy from Smash who won't shut his fucking mouth and stop shouting 'ASS RASH'! I want it!"
>>
I

I dunno
>>
>>267497104
"Honest"? Jigglypuff set the bar for out of the fucking blue characters, at least Shulk's the presumed star of his own game.
>>
Marketing, but don't forget that Xenoblade came out in Japan in 2010 and they went nuts for it.
>>
>>267497613
Yeah, because people got their hands on it and realized it was a single-player MMO with shitloads of fetch quests.
>>
>>267497861
Jigglypuff was ultra popular in Japan. Back in the day, she was just a little less popular than Pikachu.

There are also Nopons in X, but the devs said it was a different "world".
Of course, if you finished Xenoblade, you'd know it being in a different "world" doesn't mean it can't be the same one from Xenoblade at the end.
>>
>>267498012
No, it has an evolved combat system and stuff, it's a spiritual successor set in another universe.
Like how the FF are never connected
>>
>>267498012
Even though the surreal landscapes of the two look sopmewhat similar and they both share the Nopon race, they're supposed to be separate universes.

He's basically Lucas's replacement as the "maybe the faggot fans will shut the fuck up if we just throw him in there" character.

Shulk doesn't need a nerf, he has a long range but his smash attacks are so slow it balances out. You can see it coming from a mile away I should know it's why I can't main him

>>
>>267497613
I come here because I expect people to know all games. When I hear people saying "literally who" as an argument it just makes /v/ look like a bunch of casuals who dont know anything beyond the mario and halo.
>>
I honestly think it's just Sakurai being glad that a new Nintendo IP is going somewhere. I remember in his post about All-Star mode in Brawl about how disapointed he was in the time gap between when Pikmin was created and the next oldest series (Pokemon, I think), and how there really hasn't been anything since Pikmin either.
>>
>>267497104
After what Sakurai said about "no characters who don't have a future," the whole fucking thing is marketing.
>>
His inclusion makes sense.
>His game was highly praised
>Successor on the way
>Actually a Nintendo character

I never played Xenoblade, but it's nice to see someone like him get in, build some attention on lesser known Nintendo games so they don't have to constantly ride on Mario to do everything.
>>
>>267498020
It bombed but japanese smashfags couldn't shut up about Shulk in Smash since forever.

Xenoblade does have future though, Shulk is not in, but even Marth is not in FE anymore.

Half-marketing for the N3DS remake and XCX, half-earned since he's from a first-party Nintendo developer and from a critically acclaimed game.

I'm not complaining either way, since at least they gave him a very unique playstyle, unlike fucking Roy.
>>
>>267498535
It actually sold way more than expectations, it sold enough for a sequel being made and given a much bigger budget

They bought Monolith but Monolith still owns the Xeno franchise, so he's technically 2nd party.

Im pretty sure Game and Watch or Marth were the most out of the blue characters. No one I knew, knew who the hell game and watch was and only japs knew marth and roy back then. Lucas was also random but you could at least tell he was from the mother series. Wiifit was probably the most out there for sm4sh considering most people who play smash probably never even touched wiifit ever, but even then people knew what wiifit was so melee easily still had the most out there newcomers

Jigglypuff was a popular pokemon back then and was in a good chunk of the early anime. Everyone knew what jigglypuff was compared to the others I mentioned.

In a Japanese anime, it gets much more dramatic, both in movement and dialogue.
I'll take a potato chip... AND EAT IT!!
And then he DOES! And it's not a boring *crunch crunch swallow* like western cartoons. He makes big sweeping motions with his arm, and bites off half the chip so you can SEE he means business. Light Yagami is basically the Joker, except done correctly.
>>
How can this possibly be marketing. I feel as if it's a shoutout to everyone who knows shulk, not everyone who will know him on the port. To even think this is a marketing character slot is kind of stupid. Wouldn't a character from X be the marketing character then?

Jigglypuff was a self proclaimed 'Idol' in the Anime and in Japan anything idol related becomes super fucking popular. She got into smash for some bullshit reason like that. Like Edy from Valkyria Chronicles. She's fucking shit but because her bio lists her as being an Idol then she's the number 1 liked unit in Japan while folks in the west like someone who deserves it like the operator as fuck Marina.

So why not have ANY trophies (that weren't assists/playable) of characters from the handheld games?

Like Ephriam? Elincia? Roy? Eliwood? Hector? Ninian? Kris? Fire Emblem had six games on handhelds, yet the only trophies it gets on the 3DS version pretty much only come from Awakening.

Porting models.
Awakening already had models, all they had to do was give them feet.
Also, Smash has always had trophies centered around the last game(s) of the franchise.
>>
>>267500721
Pichu was like the son of the main mascot, also a mascot itself in gen 2 games. Greninja is just edgy starter. Including Feraligatr in Melee would be a better comparison.

Rosalina is just a forced character. No one really likes her except by weird neckbeards who claim her as "waifu".

Who the fuck is Lucina. Seriously.
>>
>>267497104
Smash Bros's entire purpose has been marketing, so people can become interested in Nintendo's other franchises. They put Roy in Melee just to advertise Fire Emblem: Binding Blade.

Don't give me that excuse, it's not as though Smash has NEVER created original models for trophies before. And if he was really lazy he could have just used sprites.

Same thing for Ike.

Hell, you could say that for a considerable fraction of the Smash roster for most of the world.

Captain Falcon, Ness, Ice Climbers, Lucas, Mr Game & Watch(who wasn't really even an entity until Smash Bros.).

Pit was already in the game, it's pretty obvious who this is.

That's like saying P4 didn't boost Persona up to insane proportions

Fuck off with the "muh quality". The game is fine. It's just different opinions in the end

Golden Sun is a respected RPG franchise that made the GBA worth having. Also it was ahead of his time.

Xenoblade is just another generic RPG. People like it because it's the first open world RPG for a Nintendo console.

Many current players know nothing about the Duck Hunt game. Wii Fit Trainer was shown quite often in Wii advertisements and store displays a few years ago when Nintendo was pushy gaming as the latest health tool. There were even some decent Wii Fit ripoffs on other consoles.

Or someone who hasn't played ANY of them. And I don't intend to start.

And I say that hesitantly, having watched my own favorites die.
FFT>FFTA>Dead
MM>MMZ shit>Dead
Sonic>Running Dead

I know the waifu stuff is probably "fate worse than death," but just try to ignore it as much as possible and enjoy the gameplay.

The thing is is that Robin/the avatar is in barely any of the Awakening marketing compared to the other two main characters, while Chrom & Lucina(or rather, "Marth") were front and center.

While Lucina's overall importance to Awakening is tertiary compared to Chrom and Robin who take the protagonist and deuteragonist roles, she has a considerably higher media presence.

Man, I went back to Golden Sun recently. I really don't think it's amazing as you remember. And Dark Dawn was pretty bad.

To be honest, there actually were people who had no idea who Robin was when he was revealed but knew who was Lucina (and Chrom). I guess it doesn't help that Chrom was talked a lot before because of gematsu and that Lucina was waifu shit,. I don't even have to explain.

>>267501758
I guess that'd be true if you didn't pay attention to Super Mario or Mario Kart throughout all of 7th and 8th gens.

FE should have ended with Radiant Dawn.

This pissed me off so much. This was Sakurai stroking his own cock. Palutena had NO fucking reason to be the finale for Nintendo E3. I can't believe that Pac-Man was announced off fucking screen.

And you were still getting MMX games on PS2 (albeit one was x7) at the same time, and new Classic games the gen after.

It was going to be cancelled before Awakening came along, like it or not, it saved the franchise from dying.

Dark Dawn was just boring, not that bad. Xenoblade on the other had is treated like the savior of Nintendo RPGs. There are tons of games that are just like Xenoblade and they were made like 10 years ago, but people seem to love it because there's really nothing else to play when it comes to RPGs for the Wii.

>>267502468

She is more well known than the Koopalings, and all of them made it in.

Oh heaven forbid two of the most, if not THE most well know video game characters overshadow anybody.

Palutena's trailer was easily the worst Smash trailer. It was so cringeworthy it hurts.

That sounds like a bad game to me anon.
