    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    Fire Emblem avatars have a weird place in the FE fandom. On one hand, casual fans will project themselves onto them like they would a typical blank slate protagonist, especially right after the game has come out. But the more dedicated fans treat the avatars as their own characters who we...

    Okay, here's why Zuko has a very good chance to be DLC- wait that's not right...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    Regardless of ban status, Mortal Kombat just isn't very popular or regarded in the East as-is, and that's a very big obstacle to overcome. If we're talking new fighting game options for Smash 6, I think we're best off looking at Guilty Gear and Soul Calibur. Though if Scorpion and/or Sub-Zero...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    If you ask me, Krystal is in the same situation as Isaac. Both have sizeable support bases, their moveset potential is through the roof, and both have abilities unique to specifically them (Krystal's combination of fantasy and sci-fi weaponry, Isaac's multiple types of earth-based...

    My stance on Jonesy now is more or less what my stance on Steve was at the start of Smash 4: Give it more time to see how the series ages, give the fanbase time to grow up more, and if it's still just as big a deal afterward then we should take the idea more seriously. Especially since we have...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    I agree that putting Kirby's Mouthful Mode forms into his moveset would be too clunky design-wise...with one exception. I wouldn't be surprised if his Final Smash next game uses a form somehow. Which one...will depend on what available options there are in the full release of Forgotten Land...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    Thing is...realistically, we're at a point where Smash can't keep building up higher any longer. Ultimate's roster is enormous by fighting game standards--just bringing everyone back from the first four games strained the devs so much that the base game had hardly any new content (only 6...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    While I think we should mind the idea of the Switch 2 getting an enhanced port of Ultimate...I don't think the new Mario Kart DLC is a good point of reference. Everything surrounding it makes it feel like a stopgap, something to hold Mario Kart fans over for a while (and also sweeten the deal...

    So. Xenoblade 3 has two protagonists with equal billing. Does this mean the fandom will be split between Noah and Mio for Smash 6?

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    For the first time in four years, a Direct is incoming with no potential for Smash news. This is a weird feeling. Looking forward to what we might see, though. Especially if the Mario Kart, Fire Emblem, and Xenoblade rumors hold up.

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    I can't help but think we're jumping to conclusions so far. Maybe we shouldn't speculate on what'd happen if Microsoft or Sony bought out a major Japanese publisher as if it's a done deal unless we see signs that it's actually going to happen? I get that gaming news is slow right now...

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    Never really understood the "Sakurai must have a grudge against modern Kirby" thing. Feels like too much of a knee-jerk reaction when there are other explanations for why things have happened the way they did. For one, he probably prioritizes lower-rung Kirby assets he was part of making...

    TV Asahi Poll Reveals the 100 Most Popular Console Games in Japan

    And it becomes even shallower once you realize it involves ignoring how many Eastern RPGs are still popular in the West! Pokémon and Final Fantasy have been a big deal here for a long time, but in just the past decade we've seen Persona, Fire Emblem, and even Dragon Quest reach borderline...

    TV Asahi Poll Reveals the 100 Most Popular Console Games in Japan

    Anyone else find it interesting that over half of the list is RPGs? Feels like they get dismissed around here weirdly often, but this shows just how highly regarded so many of them are. Definitely not just some niche thing. Though the original Diamond & Pearl being so high is surprising. The...
