    Official Newcomer/DLC Speculation Discussion

    Point is, some franchises only become profitable if there's an effort to push them. Sure, sometimes they just die, but can you honestly say that this is why all of the franchises that don't have a playable character were bad by themselves? Or were they just less pushed? To be clear, this is not...

    Dunno, I don't think we can say there's "little" to introduce to newer audiences when most people can come up with at least 5 or 6 names. Besides, what you've described is basically an endless cycle - Nintendo thinks their more obscure IPs aren't worth it, so they don't introduce them to newer...

    True, but that's the thing - back then it didn't matter if your series was dead or not, current/last gen or not. That's a beef that the current speculation scene has, really. I dunno - I love getting more third parties and I love the fact that Smash became the biggest gaming crossover of all...

    In particular, I think the first party selection was very strong back then. Then we got to 4 and, I dunno... third parties just stole the show. There were still some interesting additions, like Robin and Mac, but in the past two games it seems like Nintendo forgot the power Smash has in terms of...

    Ngl, Brawl had, in my opinion, the best set of newcomers relative to each game's own timeframe.

    Good day, Smashboards! How are we in this fine morn- I know there's context behind it and all, but the entire phrase makes me think of "just because you can doesn't mean you should". :joyful:

    But why in the world would we Carmen Sandiego? Want & Chance Abstaining. I don't think she's happening, but it's hard for me to pinpoint a specific score for her. Predictions Travis Touchdown: 31.5% Nominations Ahri x 5

    You know, even though the Flipnote rumors were fake, I have to give them credit for Giftpia. That's some good taste there, at least. Also, it's become hell to distinguish people, so I might as well take the opportunity to change my pfp lol.

    So, I just realized something. It's completely anecdotal and probably amounts to jack ****, but during the ARMS reveal, they showed all of the characters, but two had more screen space than the others in particular: Could just be due to Spring Man and Ribbon Girl being the box art mascots...

    If you had, then you wouldn't really have lived, would you now? Someone should draw a face in their stomach and try out this same effect. Would give their viewers nightmares for weeks.

    Bayo and K. Rool also had a good chunk of popularity coming from overseas. So I wouldn't really count them - I mentioned four because Mac, Ridley, Dark Samus and the bear and bird are the four ones that (to my knowledge, at least), were backed only in the west (or in BK's case, the western...

    "I hope they don't cater to western fans... which they've done like, 4 times. Out of 80+ characters." Yeah, not the best of arguments.

    To be fair, the best reactions to Hero were from Japan, so it wouldn't make sense to put them into a video styled for the US. Joker and Terry also garnered a lot of positive reactions... but they would probably need to be censored to appear in the video lol.

    So Nintendo posted a highlight video for the last "season"... oh, who's that on the thumbnail?
