It annoys me that the 3DS version and the Wii U version have entirely different stages. Smash Bros. isn't the type of game you want to play on a handheld... you want to be sitting around with your buds in front of a TV.

Anyway, the characters I'm most hoping to see playable are Toad, Medusa, Ghirahim, and Pac-Man.

I'll be getting it for 3DS since that's what I and most of my friends have.

Both might be worth it since they seem quite different.

The 3DS version has "Smash Run," where you can gather power ups before a match starts up. It's very similar in theory to "City Trial" from Kirby Air Ride.

We don't know what kind of feature the Wii U version will have.

The playable characters will be the same. They will share only a few stages. And the assist trophies and pokemon will be "roughly" the same. (Whatever that means. We've seen pics of Midna and Isabelle in both versions.)

I think half the fun of a Smash bros game coming out is just the speculation of who's going to be in it.

I'm still hoping for Simon Belmont. It's a longshot, yeah., but he was a classic NES character and it's be nice to see him Pit and Megaman back together again.

That would be awesome haha. I think it would be pretty easy to implement things like the cross, holy water, 'vania pot roast etc.

I want to be excited about this game, but the Wii-U has been so underwhelming. I've been looking for a reason to buy it to replace my old Wii and I've yet to find that reason. I get the sense that if this game underperforms for Nintendo, then I think it's safe to say that the Wii-U is a step back. At the very least, the 3DS continues to do well. That will keep Nintendo going. But I think they're doomed to lose this round of the console wars.

Pinsir
05-09-2014, 06:06 PM
I had at list of potential characters to speculate upon.

Some characters that may still make it:

> Paleutana
> Chrom/Tharja
> Krystal
> Drill Dozer
> ?

I doubt there will be much else, maybe two more

Some characters that have been disqualified:

> Saki
> Comander Red
> Ridley
> Starfy
> Waluigi
> Skull Kid
> Goroh
> Dillion
> Isabelle
> Lyn

Here are the characters I would keep an eye out for.

1: Shulk (Xenoblade Chronicles). Represents Nintendo's new 1st party studio, Monolith Soft. Xenoblade was their first game and Shulk was the main character of said game.

2: Palutena (Kid Icarus). Masahiro Sakurai has made a few games beyond the Smash Bros. and Kirby series. Kid Icarus Uprising was one of them. So Pit's boss, the Goddess of Light herself, seems like a perfect second Kid Icarus character.

3: Chrom or Lucina (Fire Emblem Awakening). Fire Emblem was in trouble. Sales were falling. Interest was waning. And then came Awakening. It saved the franchise. Chrom is essentially the lead of FE:A. Lucina is the actual protagonist of FE:A. I'd put more money on Chrom even though Lucina seems more popular in Japan.

4: Pac-Man. Just because Bandai-Namco is doing a lot of the grunt work in making this game.

5: Mii. Because the Mii are in just about everything lately.

I dunno who that is.


2: Palutena (Kid Icarus). Masahiro Sakurai has made a few games beyond the Smash Bros. and Kirby series. Kid Icarus Uprising was one of them. So Pit's boss, the Goddess of Light herself, seems like a perfect second Kid Icarus character.

I think they'd pick a villain over another heroic type character from that series. Medusa or possibly Hades seem more likely to me. Plus, I don't think Palutena even fights in Kid Icarus: Uprising (beyond the evil version of her).


3: Chrom or Lucina (Fire Emblem Awakening). Fire Emblem was in trouble. Sales were falling. Interest was waning. And then came Awakening. It saved the franchise. Chrom is essentially the lead of FE:A. Lucina is the actual protagonist of FE:A. I'd put more money on Chrom even though Lucina seems more popular in Japan.

I think Chrom is a safe bet, not sure about Lucina.


4: Pac-Man. Just because Bandai-Namco is doing a lot of the grunt work in making this game.

Yes, please!


5: Mii. Because the Mii are in just about everything lately.

Ugh, probably, but hopefully not. I get so annoyed when people pick a Mii instead of a Mario character in Mario Kart.

Kevinroc

I dunno who that is.

Okay. A little backstory.

Japanese video game developer Tetsuya Takahashi left Square (after he created Xenogears) and accepted an investment opportunity from Namco. This led to the creation of Monolith Soft. He created the Xenosaga series in this time period. In 2007, Nintendo purchased Monolith Soft. Xenoblade (known as Xenoblade Chronicles in the US) was released for the Wii in 2010 in Japan, 2011 in Europe and 2012 in the US.

Shulk is the main character of Xenoblade Chronicles. He battles against synthetic life with a lightsaber-like sword known as the Monado. This sword allows Shulk to see visions of the future (no idea how they would implement this in Smash Bros.), create forcefields, and cause all kinds of status buffs and special attacks.

(Plus, Xenoblade has a great soundtrack.)

Since Monolith Soft is working on a Wii U RPG (currently known only as "X") that may or may not be related to Xenoblade, I think Shulk has a shot.


I think they'd pick a villain over another heroic type character from that series. Medusa or possibly Hades seem more likely to me. Plus, I don't think Palutena even fights in Kid Icarus: Uprising (beyond the evil version of her).

The Japanese name for the series is "Hikari Shinwa: Parutena no Kagami." (Myth of Light: Palutena's Mirror.")

The series is literally named after her. Having a villain before Palutena would be like having Ganondorf before Zelda.


I think Chrom is a safe bet, not sure about Lucina.

Yeah, Chrom is probably the safest bet there is.


Yes, please!

If we do have Pac-Man, I'm really curious how they would make him work.


Ugh, probably, but hopefully not. I get so annoyed when people pick a Mii instead of a Mario character in Mario Kart.

I'm not exactly looking at the Mii as my most wanted either.

I think that'd be cool, but it does seem like a bit of a stretch.

The series is literally named after her. Having a villain before Palutena would be like having Ganondorf before Zelda.

I do think they'd put in Ganondorf over Zelda if they had to choose between them. Zelda doesn't really fight in most of the games, just like Palutena. I think it'd be cool if they added both Medusa AND Palutena (since Kid Icarus has a great cast of female characters), but I think they'd opt for the series villain over the secondary protagonist.


If we do have Pac-Man, I'm really curious how they would make him work.

I just hope that if he is in it, they don't use that god awful "Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures" or whatever design. Seriously, it's awful. We need classic Pac (with a Ms. Pac-Man alternate costume!). Although it most likely will never happen, I think it'd be cool to have the ghosts as a playable character, too. I loves me some Clyde.


Be nice if Nintendo showed their Mario RPG series some love.

I wouldn't necessarily call it a series, since there's only one game in it. Unless you're including Paper Mario/Mario & Luigi. Geno would be a cool character, and he seems to have a large fanbase. Who knows? Nobody really expected the fan-favorite Koopalings to make a reappearance either. I just want Toad as a playable character. He's the last of the big Mario characters, but since they already showed that he's still part of Peach's attacks, I doubt we'll see him playable this game. I hope in the future, they turn her move into Toadsworth or something, and have Toad playable.

Pretty much. The original SNES game, the Paper games, Dream Team, etc. Plenty of stuff there.

Maybe. But a lot of people are talking about Shulk. And with characters from less prominent franchises like Marth and Ness in this series, it might not be as much of a stretch as it seems.

I think it'd be cool if they added both Medusa AND Palutena (since Kid Icarus has a great cast of female characters), but I think they'd opt for the series villain over the secondary protagonist.

I'm not trying to start an argument but precedence argues otherwise. After all, we got Diddy Kong in the game before any Donkey Kong villain. We got Luigi before Bowser. We even got a "Zero Suit Samus" before Ridley or any other kind of Metroid baddie.

If anything, Smash Bros. seems to go out of its way to include secondary protagonists ahead of villains. That's why I think we'd get Palutena before we got a Medusa or a Hades.

Ike looks pretty great even if I wasn't a huge fan of him previously (I prefer Marth, but he's already in). I remember the creator said something like they aren't all about adding new characters this time around, yet... they keep adding the old ones! The ones that I figured they'd ditch (Ike, ZS Samus, Olimar, Lucario).

After seeing Impa's design for Hyrule Warriors, I wish they added her in the game instead of Sheik. I've always been an Impa fan.

I definitely think there will be DLC, for this and for Mario Kart 8.

Nintendo added DLC for the Mario Golf 3DS, so I think they're getting wise to what people want. I'd honestly buy all DLC for Smash Bros., if I wanted the characters/stages/whatever or not.

The idea was a sequel couldn't just be about adding new characters, not that there wouldn't be new characters (it's an important distinction to make). There have to be things in the game play that express new ideas. So something like Smash Run for the 3DS version may be what Sakurai has in mind.

Nothing about G&W. But I can't imagine he'd be removed from the line-up.

Actually, Sakurai has stated he only put Ganondorf (among others, but not including Zelda) in Melee because he felt the roster wasn't big enough and looked for characters he could turn into clone. That's why he has Captain Falcon's moveset.

The Japanese release date is September 13th according to their website. I have no idea why Nintendo isn't aiming for a worldwide release date for the 3DS version. (I would say something about the Wii U version but we didn't get any new info about that.)

I was able to get a 3DS a year after its release for a 100$ at a Walmart. Its a normal sized one too, just pink. If you look hard enough I'm sure you can find a similar deal now, especially for a used one.

This may be the one game that finally gives the Wii-U the boost it has so badly needed since it was launched. I love Smash Brothers.

Unfortunately the 3DS will likely undermine the boost this might give the Wii U. Though delaying it was probably a good idea to soften that.

People get nervous when their favorites aren't announced. Some people thought that Yoshi had been cut because they took so long to announce him. But as we saw, Yoshi was not cut.

Sakurai hates cutting characters. And while he's said that not every character will be in the new game, we saw the return of characters people really thought would be cut such as Toon Link and Ike.

And yes, I've been greatly impressed with the character selection process of this game.

I don't think we'll get a Zelda newcomer. I think classic Ganondorf is coming back (hopefully tweaked so he's less like Captain Falcon). The trailer is for a newcomer. (And I don't think we're getting a new Zelda newcomer for this game.)

If we believe the "gematsu leak," then our newcomers are Shulk, Chrom, and the "Chorus Men" (from Rythm Heaven). Shulk is the most speculated (and I think that most people have only heard of him through the "gematsu leak.")

If you want to know what the "gematsu leak" is, we'll keep it simple.

http://www.ssbwiki.com/List_of_rumors#E3_2013.2FGematsu_leak

To sum it up, before the game's reveal, the owner of Gematsu.com, Sal Romano, received an e-mail that claimed 6 characters would be revealed. "Animal Crossing Guy," (Villager), Mega Man, Wii Fit Trainer, Little Mac, Pac-Man, and the Mii would be revealed. Three of those characters were revealed the next day (Villager, Mega Man, Wii Fit Trainer). The day of the Smash Bros. Direct, Romano posted a second "leak" which he claimed was the same source as the first. This "leak" stated that Mii and Pac-Man were still going to be revealed (Little Mac had already been revealed by that point), and that the additional characters were Palutena, Shulk, Chrom, "Chorus Men," and a Pokemon from X/Y (Greninja was revealed at the end of that Smash Direct).

The only character he missed was Rosalina (who was revealed in between the first list and the second list).

While I would agree that skepticism is always healthy with things like this, it's not out of the realm of possibility that this could be legit. Particularly with weird little things going on (Rythm Heaven enemies were spotted in Smash Run, for example).

07-12-2014, 07:48 AM
I'd be a little surprised if we don't get a Zelda newcomer... we haven't had a new Zelda character since Melee, and Zelda is one of Nintendo's top game franchises.

The Chorus Men is the worst idea for a character IMO. I played Rhythm Heaven and loved it, but that doesn't mean I want a representative from that series in this game, lol. Although watch them end up being one of my favorites. I fully believe, though, that the gematsu leak is true. There's no way they could've guessed random ass characters like the Wii Fit Trainer.

Who would it be? Zelda's a big franchise, that's why they have a lot of representatives. But there's no other recurring character that haven't already been showcased in some way. Link, Young/Toon Link represent the multiple Links that exist. Zelda goes without saying. Sheik is in because she was a case the timing just worked out for her, and Ganondorf is the big bad of the series (although I would like it if he were a lot less like Captain Falcon).

Tingle? I don't know how that would go over if Tingle were promoted to playable. The Zelda team has been phasing him out somewhat because "Americans Hate Tingle."

Impa? I think Sheik has you covered there. (Although Hyrule Warriors has you covered on that front.)

Vaati?

Midna? Fi? Another one-shot character? This isn't Hyrule Warriors. There are other Nintendo characters vying for spots that need to be represented. And that's to the credit of Smash Bros. They go out of their way to make sure some of the B and C list franchises get represented.

I'm not so shocked by Rosalina, because Nintendo seems to really like her. Toad? I am not sure. It might just be bad timing that he was used as a move for Peach and they fell into a pattern. (Kind of like how Sheik got in at all despite only being significant in one Zelda game.)

The problem with Vaati is he was a creation of Flagship (a joint venture between Nintendo and Capcom to make Zelda games that has since gone by the wayside) and really only appears in Flagship games. Maybe if he's in Hyrule Warriors, he could get some kind of acknowledgement from Nintendo again.

Twinrova seems to suffer from just being yet another boss. Not really a major player in the games she shows up in. (I'll also get to the villain thing in a bit.)

Ghirahim suffers from only being the baddie in one Zelda game. And not even the main baddie. It's similar to Zant's situation in Twilight Princess. (And here's where I get back to the villain thing. Smash Bros. tends not to add a lot of villains. We still don't even have a playable Ridley. And I wouldn't hold my breath for King K. Rool, even if there is DLC. Medusa and Hades also seem like they're sitting this one out.)

Marth is the star of the first Fire Emblem. His game has had a direct sequel, and multiple remakes (we have yet to have a non-Marth FE remake). Awakening also VERY heavily relies on his name (with Chrom and Lucina being distant descendants of the legendary hero-king.) The logo for Fire Emblem is even Marth's sword.

For those curious about how Robin became the Fire Emblem Awakening rep, and how Lucina got in at all...

(Someone translated Sakurai's comments on the subject from his Famitsu article.)

Sakurai, on Robin.

"I played all the way through FE:A and really wanted to include a character from that rich cast in Smash Bros. Naturally, I considered adding Chrom to the roster, but the decision wasn't easy by any means.

"At the end of the day, Chrom would just end up being another plain-old sword-wielder like Marth and Ike. Compared with other characters, he lacks any unique characteristics.

"Conversely, when the idea of including Robin came to mind, conceiving the character was so easy that I immediately saw how it would work. From standards to specials, grabs to throws, all aspects of his moveset just fell into place. Not only did he possess characteristics unlike other fighters, but he also captured the essence of the Fire Emblem series. It was perfect!

"In the end, if a game isn't fun, then there's no point. Of course, it would be really easy to make a game by churning out a ton of similar characters, but that's not how I produce games."

On Lucina.

"Initially, I had considered including Lucina as one of Marth's alternate costumes. After all, she has a close relationship with him in FE:A. In such cases, even if two characters' names and voices differ, as long as they function the same way, I assign them as alternate costumes. The Wii Fit Trainers, Villagers, and Robin are examples of this setup.

"However, even though Lucina shares her physical stats and techniques with Marth, the characteristics of their attacks differ. When two such similar characters function in an even slightly different manner, I give them a separate spot on the roster since that will affect battle records and whatnot. In that sense, you could say she was very lucky to join the fray!"

Right. I didn't elaborate enough, but that's what I was getting at. Marth is the closest thing there is to the main character of the entire FE franchise, so that's why if the SSB games want a constant FE character, Marth is it. And Chrom would be redundant from there; at least Lucina is female.

Personally I'd like to see more than just another FE guy with a sword, Robin is a great addition as they bring a bit of variety with the use of tomes but I still find a custom avatar is a weird choice. I think Tiki would be a better addition but I can't see them adding more than 4 from that franchise.

I'd be okay with the leak.

Duck Hunt is a wacky choice, in a good way. It's a classic game that any 80's kid remembers.

Originally, I was really mad when I heard Bowser Jr. since I am a firm believer that Toad should be in it. But if the Koopalings are alternate costumes for him, then... I'm down with it.

We all already assumed Shulk was in it.

I'm skeptical about the "clone" stuff... why wouldn't Dr. Mario and Dr. Pit just be alternate costumes for the Mario and Pit?

I'm glad, if the list is true, Jigglypuff hasn't been cut. But I'd miss the Ice Climbers.

Fawful works as a character in the RPGs because he is a parody of bad video game translations from the NES/SNES/Early N64/Early PS1 era. Outside of a repeat of Snake's codecs in Brawl, he kinda wouldn't work as a playable character. Fawful would be perfect if he were an assist trophy like Animal Crossing's Mr. Resetti.

How to make a sequel to the Dark Knight Rises in CatAttacker's world-

1. Add Chrom in as a secret character. Much like the blue furry in Brawl, hidden till post release. Or add him as an alt costume as long as Matt Mercer gets to voice him.
2. Add Sukapon in as a retro character, building up to a Platinum reboot of Joy Mech Fight in which Kamiya goes goddamn crazy and causes the second apocalypse.
3.Add Ridley and King K Rool in, with a reveal trailer set to "You are my sunshine". I honestly think these two need to be in together at the same time
4. S-s-see guys! Wonder Red's gonna be in!

No seriously, Wonder Red would be amazing. Make like a trailer of deconfirmed characters resurrecting from their grave. Wonder Red and Blue maybe, as like ice climbers style.

I found Villager to be surprisingly fun. I wasn't sure what I was expecting, but he's a lot of fun.

I also enjoyed Mega Man. He's quite technical, and will take some getting used to.

Little Mac is just amazing on the ground. It's real easy to knock his foes off the stage. I didn't bother trying to attack in the air since they've all said he's terrible in the air.

I couldn't get into Greninja. I think I need more time with it.

I also wasn't wild about Wii Fit Trainer. Seemed more like a generic fighter. Maybe I just need to practice with the Wii Fit Trainer more too. WFT's final smash is pretty fun, though.

Sakurai set it to friends only, so you apparently can't even use the Mii Moveset for glory or for fun. Either way, we need to set up a CBR group and friend each other. I'm looking forward to pitting my Victorian Kim Jong Un and Mecha Chris Chan against all of you.

I hated the Duck Hunt Dog as a kid. The blaster (or whatever it was called) was really bad; you could be right in front of the screen and still “miss”. Then the dog would laugh at you because a lousy controller caused you to fail. I even remember my dad commenting on wanting to shoot the dog as it mocked him on one of the rare times he played the game.

As for the codes…so are these only going out to a handful of Platinum members? I’ve been a Platinum member for a couple years now and I’m receiving emails about things like the Zelda sale but I still haven’t gotten any codes. I tried going on the Club Nintendo site to see if there was more information but I can’t even log in due to all the traffic.

There is an English demo available now for people who were Club Nintendo members who reached Platinum status. I have not received it, even though I have platinum status, but I got the code from a friend (you get 4 codes for sharing).

Oh yeah, I heard about that in the treehouse earlier, but I don't think the UK one has a platinum status thing OTL + I forgot my log in info at Club Nintendo anyway lol

Oh well, apparently the demo is open to all next week so yeah, I hope that includes the EU! \O/

Apparently they sent them out through e-mail, however I am pretty sure I set up my account so I would not get one. Still I can imagine a lot of people being upset over this, so they might change it.

There's gotta be a name for this new wave of stuck-up ass gamers that take every "offense", no matter how minor, and use it as an excuse to insult the gaming community as a whole.

Video game people often act as if they have a history of persecution and will take offense to any criticism of their hobby.

Anyway, I just dont get why the duck is on the dog. In the game the dog fetches their bodies...

It's a conspiracy! Clearly the dog and the duck were in cahoots! No wonder everyone sucked at that game...

But ohh, there was a treehouse about this streaming earlier talking about Smash and omg the customisation options, I die OTL I especially took notice of the one which made Peach get turnips out of the ground slowly but have them do a hugeee amount of damage and the one which gave her IMMENSE recovery, I cannot wait to mess around with that.

the Villager has an interest moveset, there is nothing wrong with him.

I meant for the demo, I would of much rather try out Bowser Jr or Duckhunt Dog.

Does anyone have an extra NA code they can PM me? They failed to send me any codes even though I was a Platinum member last year and have emails enabled.

Edit: Finally got an automated email from Nintendo telling me to call. When I called I got a recording saying call volume was too high and there’s no one available to help.

If you’re going to tell everyone who emails customer service to call you then you ought to hire some people to work the phones.

Edit2: Got a human after looking up an alternate customer service number online. He said it looked like I qualified but he’d have to open a case for them to send the email and it’d take 2-3 days. I seriously doubt I’m ever getting a response.

I guess I’ll just have to wait a week for the limited-use demo.

Never mind on the codes. I got one elsewhere. In the unlikely event that NoA ever gets back to me on the codes they should have sent me, I’d be happy to share, though.

I’m trying to get a handle on these controls. I haven’t played one of these games since Gamescube and haven’t played one regularly (if once a month is “regular”) since the original. I know some have been complaining about the lack of an instruction manual but I find that going into “group” battles and setting all opponents to CPU allows me to practice moves on a bag before fighting.

I’m starting to relearn Pikachu and getting better. Still, Mega Man beats me every time. Maybe I ought to just learn Rock.

Edit: Not sure how the coins/medals work. I thought they were victory rewards at first but I've had the number go DOWN after some wins. It probably doesn't matter too much yet unless data can be transferred from demo to game like with Bravely Default.

Edit2: Okay, Mega Man doesn't seem all that great. The Villager OTOH is surprisingly fun to play with...though I'm pretty sure his balloon move will make him a real pain to play against.

Ive been playing Villager religiously, my breakdown of him/her:

Good:
> Two great recovery moves (Forward B and Up B), together it they pretty much ensure that unless you at 150% damage you can recover from anything
> In general a bunch of good A attacks
----- Dash + A: Throws a pot at people (Trips it is a better word)
----- Smash Forward + A: Drops a bowling bowl on people, it doesn't go very far but he drops it so it can go down to the very bottom of the stage, good for defending a ledge
----- Jump + Forward A: has a basic range attack where he/she uses a slingshot
----- Smash UP + A: shoots rockets

Bad
> Offensively, the Villagers B attacks are not to great
----- B: Collects projectiles, might be useful for the expanded game, but right now I only use it for Pickachu's Jolts
----- Down + B: One of the most elaborate attacks in smash; first you plant the tree, then you water it (as it grows it can do damage), then it takes two swings with an axe to chop it down (getting hit by the ax and tree do a lot of damage). All this is done with the down B and involves luring (repeatedly) an opponent to the tree. On a small stage you might be able to pull it off, but probably no on a larger one.
> in general his/her A attacks lack range

I'm getting kind of thrown by the way half the buttons don't do anything useful. The D Pad is all taunts and X and Y do the exact same thing as Up.

I was wondering about B; it didn't seem to do anything.

I really doubt Down B would ever be usable against AI, let alone real people. It is fun to spam Forward B at the CPU when they're near a ledge, though. I doubt the Villager would work very well against real players but I'm enjoying him the most in this demo.

I think you can change the controls. For me I would prefer using the d-pad to move.


I was wondering about B; it didn't seem to do anything.

It captures an enemy projectile (Pikachu's Jolt, Most of Megaman's attack) and using B again allows you to use that attack. I find it useful if an opponent uses range attacks a lot; you capture the first attack, use the captured one to cancel a second attack and by then you can pummel people.

Im trying to use it and whenever I do the AI wallops me most of the time. The tree though can be used as a buffer against attacks.

Also I forgot to say the Villagers Final Smash is one of the worst. It requires you to be right next to an opponent. Not as bad as Metaknights Brawl one, but still not great.

The demo is great, though it's going to take a while to get used to playing on the 3DS with a zoomed out screen.

I love that the Duck Hunt Dog is basically a thinly veiled Banjo+Kazooie.

Dude what? Villager's neutral b is otherworldly.

Playing Mega Man against him, and he catches my Crash Bomb.

Later in the match, I get up close to fire one and he throws it first. He can even catch Gyroids, the little rocket his side b is. People say he can do it with another villager's tree too.

While I know this hasn't really got much to do with your point, I must say I LOVE the alts in this game, esp Bowser Jr's, all the 7 other kooplings <3 Wendy 4 LYFE and Lucina representing other FE Females, Mega Man's alts being his other power-up forms, it's a great step-up from the previous games.

Tho I don't know why they wouldn't add a proper Daisy alt. when they did one just fine in Melee - a 13 year old game OTL

I'd share with you but NoA just sent me an email claiming the reason I didn't get my codes (and thus had to beg for one elsewhere) was because I opted in for email after the fact...which would have been impossible since the Club Nintendo site was down all day Friday.

This promo was REALLY poorly handled.

It's probably a rights issue because Pac-Man isn't a Nintendo character. Mega Man doesn't have a Proto Man alt, despite that being a fairly popular idea.
