Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Recommended Posts

Official site: http://smashbros.com/en_US/index.html

 

 

Let it be known that this is not a mere port, and that I will edit the thread title upon the reveal of an official name.

 

We'll probably have Bayonetta again, since she integrated into Nintendo since the previous titles, though my main hope is for Bomberman.

 

I resolve to update this post as we receive more information.

While I'm not doubting this is Smash 5, the fact that it is suppose to come out this year is kind of insane to me since this is the first they've said ANYTHING about it. BotW Link though is very telling.

 

 

The trailer was great. Splatoon is a really cool IP and the lineup of all the greats under the Smash icon was really sweet. Can't wait to hear more about this.

I've wanted Sora for a while now. I was mildly upset when Cloud got in given they're both Square characters (or rather, characters from an SE-based franchise, because I think Sora actually belongs to Disney), but I guess it's made better by the fact that Cloud is such a well-made character and so braindead fun to play.

 

I can't think of anyone else I want in more.

If we are being serious I really want K.Rool. DK deserves a 3rd rep and while he might not be the big bad anymore Sakurai loves his throw backs and the King was really important to the franchise. Past that I wanted Sceptile to even out the Water and Fire starters but Owl seems prefect for Smash.

No promises of getting a Switch (if not for this), but Smash is always hype regardless.

I'm gonna dump my FE fanboy ideas down here for a second.

One, Lucina be a Marth skin. If only to calm the "Too many FE characters" storm a bit.

Personally I'm annoyed how they chose so many sword mains but if they add in Hector, the Axe Lord, and Ephraim, the Lance Lord, that could be fine. Though they could have a Bow user, Magic User besides Robin, or even a Hidden Weapon (shuriken/knives) user....Or one of the Beast units.

There's so many options and it always bothered me they went with what they did.

 

Though also I'd love to see an Anna Assist Trophy and/or some kind of Shop feature with Anna as the clerk. Pleeease.

 

Other than that...I swear I had more ideas but I got lost in my FE thoughts....

OH YEAH. I'd like Custom Robo representative but doubtful.

 

...I guess I should get a Switch though

I'm firmly assuming this is a new title and not a port. New logo, "Title Pending" on the site (as opposed to just "Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo Switch" which would be in line with "for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS" if it were a port). There's also BotW Link instead of the TP Link we've had for the past couple Smash games. And 4 years isn't an unrealistic span of time for a new entry, the times between each of the Smash Bros titles was 2 years, 7 years, and 6 years. Having it come this year to go with the release of the Switch's online service makes perfect sense, you know everybody's gonna pay for it to play online Smash. Also, you don't hype up and tease this sort of thing if it's just an enhanced port, the fan backlash would be enormous if this was revealed later to be a port, not even Nintendo is that stupid.

 

I'm really happy about the Inklings being in, people had been wanting them as DLC on the last one, so I'm glad they made it here.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if we got Crash Bandicoot, what with the trilogy coming to Switch. I feel like he'd make a cool guest character. Personally I'm hoping for Travis Touchdown. I voted for him in the Smash 4 ballot and with the newest entry in the series being a Switch exclusive I could see him getting in just fine, and Suda51 has expressed heavy interest in getting Travis in the series in the past.

Yay, inklings for Smash. Some of the other characters aren't as easy to identify, but we will find out in due time.

 

I'm still hoping for professor Layton to get added (despite him being somewhat out of place in the game).

I can't wait for character reveals to start. Smash games don't come around all that often, and the hype build-up is such a fun period of months.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this was a thing; "I wonder if the Ice Climbers will return?"

I saw the trailer and was like; "I thought this was a Smash trailer, not Splatoon."

 

I'm intrigued as to what new characters we'll get.

I really hope Crash Bandicoot is in it, that would be hella dope.

My other predictions are someone from ARMS, as well as Shiranui fro Okami, seeing as it was announced for Switch. Also, potential Undertale character? I doubt it, but it would be cool nonetheless.

 

I'm so damn excited for this game. And it's coming out THIS YEAR. AAAAAAAAAAAA

Okay, now that Marth and Roy have English VA's, NO MORE JAPANESE QUOTES FROM THEM! YAY!

Unless you're in Japan of course  Kappa .

On a serious note, that's more or less a have to wait and see if they use Japanese quotes situation.

I was thinking that perhaps they'll probs have someone from ARMS as well.

Max Brass for Smash 5 pls and thank you.

 

I like how the girl Inkling's reaction to seeing the Smash symbol is pretty much what everyone else's was, I imagine. Well, before the screaming. I certainly lost my sheet when it was revealed.

I feel like we need to pull back on the 3rd party character speculation. The 3rd party characters are a big deal so I don't suspect they'll get thrown on just for the sake of it.

 

And on that note, ARMS is likely to have a character. I mean, honest question, does Nintendo have a fighting game IP that isn't smash?

Not any others aside from Smash and ARMS that I can think of. And ARMS has done quite well for a new IP, it's sold over 1.6 million copies by this point, a character wouldn't be undeserving. Though realistically speaking it'd be Spring Man and/or Ribbon Girl, Max Brass is just me being very hopeful.

Considerations should be made for preexisting series and characters with the same fervor as new characters. 

 

Mario, Link and Pikachu should be changed to reflect Odyssey, Breath of the Wild and Z-moves (volt tackle replacing skull bash to enable a Catastropika final smash). Should Greninja return, its final smash would become Ash Greninja. A reformed—hopefully competitive—Kirby with a Star Allies moveset.

 

With the new Greninja around Smash 4, and the precedent of introducing yet-unreleased characters (Corrin), a Pokemon Switch release in Smash's vicinity should prompt vigilance for the next generation's darling.

Yea, those would be the 2 with the best odds. No harm in dreaming though.

Let's get this trending, people.

I think Greninja is super likely to come back, helped with having won the popularity poll they rain a couple years ago. Jigs being in the top 50 means she has a good shot at making it back too.

 

I don't think we'll see any Gen 8 Pokemon. Fates came out in 2015 so the game was being played when Corrin was announced. To my knowledge only Roy has gotten in as a promotion for an upcoming release. Decidueye seems to be the most likely for the new rep. Other options are Incineroar, Lycanroc, Bewear, Mimikyu, Kommo-o, and Buzzwole. As said Decidueye gets my support for balancing the Fire and Water starter and both are super likely to make it back in.

Also I noticed that HAL Laboratory is listed in the copyright blurb, so they're back developing for the series again after their last involvement was just some cooperation with Brawl.

Where did you see this?

 

Anyway, I'm board so lets guess at roster size.

 

First the previous games break down.

Smash 64: 12

Melee: 26, 14 new comers, +14

Brawl: 39, 18 new comers, +13

Smash 4: 58, 21 new comers, +19 (51, 17, +12 discounting DLC)

 

Of the 58 characters; Toon Link, Dark Pit, Dr. Mario, Lucina, Pac Man, Lucas, Roy, Ryu, and Cloud are the most likely cuts. Of the other 3rd party characters Bayo has good odds of coming back while Mega Man and Sonic honestly feel at home in the game. All the other characters honestly feel like they have a shot at remaining in the game.

 

While large rosters are really cool, they do have upper limits. Over all I'm going to guess that we have 64 characters with those 9 characters cut and 15 new characters taking their place.

 

Edit: Forgot the Switch doesn't have Miis. That is -3 characters. And nothing of value was lost.

 

If we start making deeper cuts. Wii Fit Trainer, Duck Hunt, R.O.B., Game&Watch, Corrin, Robin, Palutaina would be the next ones to go.

I watched back the trailer and didn't see it. Saw it on the site though. Interesting.
