The Super smash bros topic for U guys.

Post by Dragonite » Mon Jul 22, 2013 11:22 pm

Olimar revealed. *tumbleweed*

This may indicate regular updates will be starting, and as such, I just went ahead and made a topic for later.

Wasn't Olimar revealed a while back? Oh well, I hope that the site gets updates as much as it did for brawl. This may be the reason I get a Wii U. Eventually. Vita first.

Not sure, happened to check the site, seems like it updated with his introduction today, but he could have been revealed elsewhere.

Sakurai is doing a daily photo on Miiverse, for those who have a Wii U. Although I think they get put up on the site too.

Yeah Sonic being back should surprise exactly no one given the exclusivity thing.

Toon Link's confirmation makes me hope and pray they've mixed up his moveset at least somewhat to avoid clones, but screenshots confirm bombs, bow, and spin attack, so my actual confidence is low.

Sonic's moveset was solid in Brawl but he had exactly three kill moves; a couple changes to some normals or at least the way they hit would be awesome instead of having to try to land a back air or forward smash constantly.

Who else has been confirmed since this came up last? Luigi is back, he'll be the same, Peach is back, she'll be the same. It's been all veterans since the proper reveal at E3 and I'd love to see who else Sakurai has up his sleeve.

I think at this point it's safe to say everyone from N64 Smash is in there permanently; we're missing Ness, Falcon, Jigglypuff, and Yoshi. The F-Zero game in Nintendo Land confirms Nintendo hasn't *completely* forgotten F-Zero exists, Earthbound just got an overseas VC release, Jigglypuff has somehow made it into three games and is now Fairy Type or whatever the hell, and Yoshi has a new game coming out in 2014 as well.

IF I HAD TO SPECULATE AND I WILL NOW I'd say Marth is also coming back, Chrom is replacing Ike, Diddy or Dixie is showing up but not both, Zelda/Shiek will come back, 'Dorf is likely but please god with a new moveset, Falco is back, DeDeDe or Meta Knight depending on who's more important in the new Kirby game, Ice Climbers will probably be in it (guhgughughghh), and whatever Pokemon is the flavor of the month from X/Y will replace Lucario. Also Zero Suit Samus probably (gross).

That puts us at 32 characters, five less than Brawl if we include Shiek and Zero Suit in those numbers. That's a realistic guess though, if I was wishlisting I'd have a whole different set of crumpets (Toon Dorf with the twin swords, Dixie 100% over Diddy, fudge' GROOSE, 9-Volt and 18-Volt replace Ice Climbers and have a totally different moveset, oh my god I could go on).

I honestly think we'll see Mewtwo again. Two new mega forms offer a whole new playstyle compared to his Melee self, and point to him being the current flavour of the month. Not to mention being pretty highly requested.

The most curious thing to wonder is which guest characters we'll be getting, if any. I'd expect more in this than Brawl, but even then only 4. Can't expect Snake again, although he was bloody good fun to play with. Maybe Bayonetta? Someone from the SMT series? Commander Video?

Okay, the latter is extremely unlikely.

Bayonetta is a Dream but they'll have to change her playstyle given that the core mechanic is her clothes come off as she attacks more. I haven't watched enough Bayonetta 2 trailers to see how much of that is retained, but if it's toned down that's possible. Given how Sakurai has thrown a fit about "not just any franchise," though, I doubt it. Someone from SMTIV is possible to cross-promote SMTxFE, it'd probably be Flynn/the MC although I mean if they do Bayonetta with clothing removal Mara would be rad.

Also yeah Mewtwo makes sense, good call.

Ah, true, I forgot that this isn't Sony Smash Bros. and it's not getting filled up with just any old game series. Well then, that makes things more interesting. Maybe someone from Dragon Quest? Monster Hunter? Rayman?

Oh god, imagine if it was Rayman.

Wavedashing was fun tho! It upped the pace of the game.

Marth was a given, only what happens to Ike interests me. He might be axed in favor of Chrom, or Ike stays and Lucina is introduced as a more agile fighter.. However, seeing how fast marth is I doubt they can make a faster sword wielder without her being broken(meta holds that role and broken status anyway). I still like Ike more then Chrom as a option after playing both games though, Chrom suffered from being the last in a line of many archetype recycles and the slighty bloated nature of the plot(I should bring the game itself up in further detail elsewhere).Ike stands out more vs marth, this was the case even in the Awakening DLC.

At least they removed tripping this time. I didn't play brawl enough to hate it, but randomly getting stunned when moving around is a very bad way to solve the problem. Sakurai wants acessible carnage over competive sleekness anyway, so he probably will stick close to Brawl in other aspects.

Why so bitter?

It's okay if you don't like wavedashing, but it did make things faster and for those who played that way, it was fun.

I don't like it because it gives me handcramps. That seems pretty straightforward. :|

You can make a game faster without silly things like that that actually y'know...hurt?
