Smash Ultimate
« on: August 09, 2018, 04:17:30 PM »
Super Smash Bros Ultimate seems to be at this point Masahiro Sakurai giving fans whatever they ask for. Ridley being the first new character introduced was something long anticipated but never thought a reality. But now thanks to the Nintendo Direct yesterday, it seems "Give the fans whatever they want" is the primary factor for new additions. Proof:

There's tears flowing. But they're not bloody, that I can assure you.

Finally got his lazy ass off the Gangplank Galleon.

With that in mind, I have only one thing to say:

GOKU FOR SMASH!!!!

Please god no.

I just want Wart in a Smash game someday. He's overlooked and mostly forgotten and it ain't fair, SMB2 is my fav.

That makes me wonder... why has Birdo never shown up in Smash, apart from being a stage hazard in Mushroom Kingdom II?

If we're gonna get another Mario character, Geno, Fawful, or Popple need to be at the front of the line.

Ken and Incineroar have been announced for the Smash Ultimate roster.

We also got something completely out of left field with Piranha Plant. I'm fairly certain this is Sakurai sticking it to the ungrateful f**kers who piss and moan about everything regarding Smash, but I'll just say I like it.

We're also getting a new single-player mode called "World of Light", which looks pretty neat.

Honestly though, the thing that got me hyped most wasn't any of the above. It was the fact that the game has a VOCAL theme, and it's absolutely beautiful.

Previously, I'd talked with John (Dilbert) about a wishlist for Smash fighters. At the top of my list was a character from an ATLUS JRPG series. However, I considered this a pipe dream and not at all realistic.

I wake up this morning and see a text message from him. I interpret it as something else, but then after I get on my laptop and go to YouTube, I see a Smash trailer which suddenly shows what his text message was actually saying.

You, me, and everyone else never saw it coming.

Just picked it up and can’t wait. Some things to do around the house before digging into it.

The Joker Persona 5 announcement came out of left field and now it really feels like anyone can be in this game.

Not "just anyone", they have to specifically be video game characters, not just characters who have eventually been in a video game.

Given the fact that Joker got in and he was on the top of my (what I thought to be) unrealistic wish list, I've got the following on my wish list.

Geno from Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is one I (and most Smash players) want in. He's an underrated character from a classic SNES game that many would like to see return.

If SquareEnix is going to get another representative, I would want it to be someone not obvious. For me, Sabin Figaro (FFVI) and Tifa Lockhart (FFVII) would be my picks. Sabin and Tifa make sense as martial artists, and also avoids the "too many sword users" complaint a lot of players have.

My number one pick however is The Doom Slayer (aka The Doom Marine, aaka Doomguy) from DOOM(2016). The rebooted DOOM utterly amazed me, and The Doom Slayer might just be the greatest video game silent protagonist of all time. Plus, it appears Nintendo wants to have a special relationship with Bethesda, and what better way than including the man that makes Hell collectively s**t itself?

My biggest want:

It's not going to happen because he doesn't originate from a video game BUT he WAS in a video game and is a huge key part of Nintendo history:

Popeye.

I think his art style, animations and attack possibilities are perfect for Smash.

As for Square-Enix having another representative? I'd like to see The Dragon Warrior or Mog, honestly.

If it HAD to be a FF character I can't bet against Cid being an option but I'd personally choose Kefka, hands-down.

Now that Joker's in the game, my entire wish list is Mike Jones from Startropics.

Geno would be cool, too, and for an Enix representative, I think I'd probably go with the Slime, since that's common to all DW games.

I realized something, which I shared with other friends:

Joker is now in the game. You know who got in the previous installment? Robin.

Therefore, one of the remaining DLC characters MUST be Batman!

My logic is flawless.

So as it turns out, Joker in Smash might cause some trouble.

For example, he might make some suitors jealous:




Sidenote: Daisy no-selling his Persona Protag Swag(TM) is hardcore.


Or he might make the same mistake in his home game and go for a harem, which didn't end well there and won't end well in Smash:



Also sidenote: That isn't Futaba in the second panel. Easy to confuse her with Inkling Girl, I know ;)
Also also sidenote: Yes, it's supposed to be funny. But seeing Zelda, Peach, Lucina, and Inkling Girl utterly heartbroken crushes me. It'd be depressing if not for Daisy looking ready to murder Joker.

Apparently the four remaining DLC characters for Smash Ultimate have leaked

They are as follows:
-Erdrick (Dragon Quest)
-Steve (Minecraft)
-Ryu Hayabusa (Ninja Gaiden)
-The Doom Marine/Doom Slayer/Doomguy (DOOM)

My thoughts on them.

Erdrick – Okay, that’s another way for SquareEnix to get a second representative in Smash. A deep pick and one I actually like. Also gives some attention to the other big SquareEnix franchise in Dragon Quest, one that’s had a lot of success in Japan but not so much in the US.

Steve – Honestly, all I can think about when I think of Steve is SMG4’s Super Mario 64 Bloopers on YouTube, where Steve is an insane manchild. Not a Minecraft fan personally, but it makes sense.

Ryu Hayabusa – This is the (supposed) inclusion I’m the second-most excited for. Ninja Gaiden was a big part of my childhood, and I’d love to use his Ninja Arts against the Smash roster.

Doom Marine – YES PLEASE! If this is true, Doomguy will be my main. Joker from Persona 5 was the top of my wishlist, and after he got included, the Doom Marine shot to the top of my list. The rebooted DOOM is one of my favorite games, and being able to rip and tear through the Smash roster would be a dream come true.
