    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Honestly, I think these game trials and online events are a red herring--they don't mean anything Smash-related. There've also been tournaments for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Mario Tennis Aces, and no one's insinuating they might be hinting at a Smash reveal. Nintendo's just giving attention to...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    So...needless to say, yesterday's Direct wasn't very notable (unless you're a SMT fan, in which case you're likely still celebrating). All we have to go off for now is that there'll be more Mini Directs going forward, though their exact nature and frequency remains uncertain. Still, they can't...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    I've been playing around with such an idea, actually. The core idea is a tag team concept with only one in battle at a time (so like :ultpokemontrainer: instead of :ulticeclimbers:), but with a twist. Instead of being able to swap out at any time, you'd need to land certain attacks, which...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Meanwhile, check this out. Caveat emptor since the usual TCG gacha rules are in play (and apparently a couple of the packs are from previous years), but it's neat. Especially with how they come with promo merch. I wonder if those figures are sold separately...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    In order: - Rose, Sonia, and the hero statue bodes well for things getting serious going forward. Though I wonder what how long they plan on stretching out the anime's version of the ingame events. If the Second Darkest Day (so to speak) is wrapped up by the end of this year, what will they...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    I think things are mostly unchanged for now. Spirits are 100% in play now (which helps us), but the ARMS content that accompanied Min Min didn't take a sharp enough left turn to imply any major shifts in design philosophy. Sword & Shield still happen to have the perfect combination of timing...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Well, that's one way to handle it. Just find a completely different render than the one the original spirit used. That wouldn't be hard for us, between the Sugimori art, box art renders, and other misc. artwork that already exists. This also shows how they handled making the name different...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    I think it'll be at least a couple months before we hear anything Smash-related. They'll need more time to get everything ready for Fighter #7 (my bet is an October release), especially in the likely scenario that development on their reveal trailer has been set back by lockdowns. Maybe if a...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Well...I'm don't think we have enough information to make that call. For all we know, it could've been other factors that gave Min Min a leg up (like being able to use her signature kicks to fill in gaps in her moveset). There's also Piranha Plant, a non-main character who was chosen because...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Every damn time, I swear. Every time a new round of newcomer speculation kicks off, most of the community picks a small handful of characters to focus on and hardly diverges from them at all. Only seems to change if either a new game is announced to shake things up or a rumor (even an easily...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Thing is, it probably was meant for last week's event, but something caused a delay. Notice how the intro and outro sections were filmed in a much less staged environment, as if they didn't anticipate having to do that? But, it's on its own now, at the mercy of some reeeally overhyped...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Well, I think that was a net gain for us. We now have 100% confirmation that Spirits are eligible to make the jump to playable. Considering the SwSh spirit event was probably made long before Vol. 2's lineup was locked in, and also considering they might've pulled the exact thing with Vol. 2...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Wait, who found that and where? It may just be future proofing, but a surprise third wave of DLC could potentially be what they've put off announcing until the 24th. Though there're questions that'd need to be answered. How would its price be handled? Awkwardly set separately from the main...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Aye. While we don't have to worry about who'll be revealed next for a while yet, we do still have a vested interest in how this one turns out. If the ARMS character (or characters) is someone who is already a spirit, that bodes well for us.

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    So...less than an hour to go now. What do they have in store for us? Agreed. 11 minutes means they only have so much to reveal (the January Direct was ~20 minutes), but they also spent the majority of that talking about Sword & Shield's DLC expansions, what is basically the main line content...
