    I figured that the character would be much less hype than Terry after the VGAs came and went without a reveal. It's pretty hard for me to be mad at Byleth when my predictions were already leaning towards more obscure 3rd parties like Adol & KOS-MOS.

    Byleth: Joins House Smash Brothers Social Thread

    Like a lot of people I was pulling for Edelgard, but I'm ecstatic to see Three Houses fully represented with a stage, music, and spirits. Awesome to see Byleth repping all the main weapons types and has a Down Special that isn't a counter, thank the gods.

    I'm keeping my eye on Adol Christin for FP5 now that Hayabusa has been shot down. Its funny that Falcom gets almost no discussion here despite being one of the few classic Japanese game developers left, them creating the ARPG genre, and Ys being 30+ years old and still selling decently well to...

    Adol Christin's Journey Towards Smash (Cold Steel 3 on Switch!?)

    Never touched Ys in my life and really don't care for Adol at all but my gut feeling is saying Falcom is next in line. Like I see all the love Sakurai gave SNK and I'm of the mind that the last fighter has to, in Sakurai's mind, have some real sense of significance to their inclusion in beyond...

    Official Competitive Character Impressions 2.0

    Wonder why he listed Mario as a good matchup for Hero? Mario's not the fastest character but I figure he'd still have enough mobility to get around Hero's tools and overwhelm him with his vastly superior frame data.

    Other than not letting Mac use his Side-B again if he gets knocked out of it, Mac's biggest issue is that he gets screwed by platform camping since ideally he wouldn't be chasing opponents in the air anyway. I'd definitely peg him as a solid mid tier if Final Destination was the only legal stage.

    I'm remembering why I considered you an idiot. I simply don't think Sakurai has interest in acknowledging stuff in the mobile or PC spheres. Why else do you think Fire Emblem Heroes or Dragalia Lost haven't been acknowledged in Smash anywhere beyond a remix where Sakurai stated he let the...

    Sorry guys who like League of Legends but MOBAs like LoL and DOTA 2 are some of the very few games I am confident in completely writing their chances off. If Smash can't even be bothered to reference any of the mobile games Nintendo own with actual Spirits, only giving FE Heroes one measly remix...

    How is 2B not iconic enough to get in Smash but Joker is? Her game actually outsold his by over a million.

    In hindsight, Joker feels like an exception to the historical trend of 3rd parties in Smash rather than anybody who shattered it. Dragon Quest has deep history with Nintendo and is Square-Enix's second largest franchise, SNK in retrospect were pretty much the next most notable long standing...

    These two were disconfirmed earlier on but now that more DLC has been announced I'm pretty high on Dante & Kazuma Kiryu's chances now assuming we end up getting eleven more newcomers. And Tales of, Tekken, and Resident Evil straight up feel like a question of "when" and not "if".

    Can't personally say anything about how big the reaction to Joker was to be honest. Ultimate release hype kind of drowned out his reveal for me and while Nintendo's online did crash upon his release I've always considered that more about Nintendo being an absolute **** show when it comes to...

    Official Newcomer/DLC Speculation Discussion

    I consider the lack of big Western made 3rd party franchise a serious hole in the roster considering all of the noise Nintendo makes about Ultimate being the biggest crossover in gaming history and not just Japanese history. That the head honcho himself supposedly doesn't care is a flaw in my...

    Are Touhou, Puyo Puyo, Dead or Alive, and Tales even major franchises anywhere outside of Japan (or anywhere in DoA's case)? Popularity in Japan =/= Worldwide popularity applies just as well. SNK fighting games are in a fairly unique situation compared to the other represented franchises in...

    Official Newcomer/DLC Speculation Discussion

    If they're not going to throw Nintendo fans anymore bones with anymore 1st parties or lost 1st parties like Banjo, I at least hope the next wave leans towards big, A-tier 3rd party picks that are big worldwide like Minecraft, Overwatch, Resident Evil, Tekken, Kingdom Hearts, Crash Bandicoot...
