  • Retro Studios really needs to finish making Metroid Prime 4. People have waited too long already and they're starting to think the game is silently cancelled.

    Well, do you want a game that's rushed for the sake of being rushed, or a good game that takes its time? Take your pick. Believe me, you want the latter despite how grueling the wait may be.

    You would maybe have a reasonable point here if it weren’t for the fact that Retro has already said they had a huge overhaul on the development of the game.

    At this point, it’s definitely a case of fans being impatient, and have no idea how long development time actually takes
    Spring Man was my requested ARMS rep but Min Min is also good. In fact her joining is a better deal because Spring Man is going to be a Smash 6 newcomer anyway since he's the star and Min Min will also return in Smash 6 so we would have two ARMS reps in Smash 6. Also if Min Min didn't join through Vol. 2, she probably never would have joined the Smash series ever.

    Did you think Sakurai was joking when he said the developers of Arms would prefer Min Min in the game?
    I’d said it before, I’ll say it again, there is not supposed to be one protagonist of Arms

    And Isabelle isn't the star of Animal Crossing but she was added because she was very recognizable. Spring Man is also very recognizable so he just could join the next Smash.

    Again, he'd be an easy addition but I really don't see him being the character that someone would buy the game for. Especially since Min Min has basically 'stolen' the excitement of an ARMs rep. I wouldn't mind more reps from the series if they can make a second rep stand out compared to Min Min.
    I hope Age of Calamity has characters from other Zelda games too just like the original. Link's Awakening DX Link could be a new character.

    As much as I would love that, I wonder what the odds really are for more criss crossing like the first Hyrule Warriors. The first one had a unique story that didn't really care about the 'clash' of having all the crossover characters from the various Zelda titles. However with this one being, from what we have been told, effectively a canon story to the BotW. So tonally, it'd be awkward for the other characters to crop up in the main story mode.

    However if they're still playable in 'free mode' then that works too and I'd welcome them. I'm in the camp, though, that the campaign mode should only allow the BotW characters.
    I feel bad for Chrom supporters from the Smash 4 era. Chrom had every right to join but he got snubbed and humiliated in the Robin trailer and by Viridi. We could have had him, Robin and Lucina in Smash 4. That would have angered a few Smash fans but most fans didn't mind the amount of FE content in Smash 4.

    People only started complaining after Roy and Corrin showed up as DLC. Roy because even though people did want him back, having him AND Lucina in the same game meant two characters whose movesets were clearly based on Marth, plus Roy kinda fell into obscurity between his removal from Brawl onwards.

    Corrin was REALLY the straw that broke the cammel's back. He was added to promote FE Fates ("Shill" character concepts were EXTREMELY hated during those days, and still have quite a lot of detractors now) which didn't even came outside of Japan during Corrin's reveal, was ANOTHER FE character right after Roy got as DLC (which is made worse since Corrin is the only Nintendo newcomer as DLC in Smash 4) and Fates itself beign regarded as a very controversial game. The direction it took with the character designs, the "buy 2 games to get the whole story" deal, the localization, dear god the localization, and so on and so forth. It was that specific moment where a lot of people just had enough.

    Viridri must die btw.

    Why would anyone want Biden to be president? He's buddy buddy with China and he could worsen America. I'd rather have Trump back for another 4 years.

    I'd rather vote for Trump as well, but I don't like either candidate.

    They're both the exact same candidate with different superficial aesthetics. They're both geriatrics hopped up on Adderal that adopt the talking points of their respective parties of which their past history shows they don't care the slightest about. Biden is one of the main architects of modern systemic racism and has been part of some of the worst administrations in recent times in that regard. He's no more a friend of the brown people than Trump.

    Trump is clearly way in over his head and he only ran to further his narcissism and self-promotion. He clearly does not care for the job at all and is just listening to what his party tells him. To try to pretend he's in any way shape or form able to govern is to completely ignore what a mess he and his entire life has been. He's only managed to maintain his legacy by swindling and exploitation, so he's no more a hero of the working class than Biden is of minorities.

    They will both govern the exact same way as proven by Trump's last four years being inline with standard fare and the only difference will be in superficial rhetoric and mannerisms. If you honestly think Trump will be more hostile to China or Biden will handle Covid better then you haven't been paying any attention.

    Here's a reasonable lineup of base game newcomers in Smash 6.

    • Sans.
    • Bomberman.
    • Alucard.
    • Spring Man.
    • Ribbon Girl.
    • Dixie Kong.
    • Shantae.
    • Fire Emblem character.
    • Xenoblade character.
    • Pokemon character.
    • Persona 6 protagonist.
    • Captain Toad.
    • Toadette.
    • Dante.
    • Isaac.

    The new FE, Xenoblade and Persona reps would be the newest protagonists by the time Smash 6 releases and the new Pokemon would be a popular one from the most recent Pokemon game by the time Smash 6 releases.

    Great list. But I would add Krystal, Bandana Dee, and Ashley to that list since they're popular requests too.

    I was joking yknow.
    Since Banjo is a cereal mascot, what would his cereal be? How about Jiggy Crunch? They're puzzle piece shaped wheat cereal pieces with music note, egg, feather and honeycomb shaped marshmallows.
    The reason Waluigi never gets picked to be playable is because he doesn't have enough unique moveset potential. He has long legs and can use them to kick from a long distance, he has a tennis racket, he can swim through the air and throw Bob-Ombs but that's about it.
    Venus of the Desert Bloom

    That’s 100% incorrect. I’m not a Waluigi fan but the guy has more than enough personality and moveset potential to be a playable character. That sort of logic can easily be refuted by characters like Duck Hunt, Ice Climbers, Game & Watch, Wii Fit Trainer, Little Mac, and even Rosalina. Waluigi has just as much if not more potential then they do.

    What’s unique to someone isn’t unique to the other. I would say completely the opposite and that Waluigi would have a very fun, quirky, and unique moveset.
    We have Joker in Smash, Joker in TMS #FE Encore, Persona Q2 on 3DS and Persona Scramble on Switch but not Persona 5 on Switch. Why is that?

    Because Atlus doesn’t understand that there‘s a market for their Persona games outside the PlayStation, not just 5.

    Because Atlus is working on other titles for the Switch and it may have issues running on Switch? Also, if they didn't understand that there was a market outside of PlayStation, why would they bother with the Q or Arena titles?
    Children love GTA V, so why isn't GTA V on Switch?

    I mean GTA was on the GBA. But granted the games have gotten much more detailed and mature since then. I wouldn’t count on it.
    After everyone was excited on the day Banjo was announced, Rare must know by now that they need to make more Banjo games.

    Only us old Rareware fans care about Rare's classic games. Rare, and especially Microsoft and Nintendo give less of a ****. It's proof because of Rare and Microsoft barely next to non not touching the classic IPs for new entires for years.
    Microsoft did not ruin Rare, Rare ruined themselves. Microsoft is A OK with Rare making more Banjo games if they want to but they're the ones refusing to make them. Not all of Rare's mistakes are Microsoft's fault.
    Many people play ARMS. The reason not many people talk about it is because there's not a lot about ARMS to talk about. It does not have enough content.
    What if Rare made Banjo-Pilot 2 instead of a 3D collectathon Banjo game?

    Rare never said they didn’t feel like it. They said it was (mainly) up to Microsoft.
    The wait for Joker was the longest wait in Vol. 1 while the waits for Hero and Banjo were much shorter. This is because, and there's no way to convince me that this isn't the truth: Joker, Hero and Banjo were all in development at the same time.

    Sure, maybe, but Sakurai did say he revealed Joker earlier than what he usually does for the GOTY awards, so you’re kinda reading too much into things that’s don’t really matter

    Every repped series in Smash is niche except Mario, Pokemon, PAC-MAN and Minecraft.
    FF7 needs a spirit event. Tifa, Barret, Aireth and Sephiroth could be the spirits to collect.
    If Rex & Pyra were to be DLC, Pyra could stand in the background while transferring her powers to Rex and if you get too far away from Pyra, just press B while shielding to summon her like the Crafting Table. If Rex is too far away from her his attacks will be less powerful and he could have some attacks that he can't do if he's too far away from Pyra.
    So far Vol. 2's release schedule has been somewhat similar to Vol. 1's release schedule. Joker released 4½ months after Vol. 1 became available for purchase and Min Min released 5 months after Vol. 2 became available for purchase. Also Hero and Steve both released 3½ months after the first characters in their passes. Could FP8 be releasing in November like how we got Banjo just one month after Hero?

    A Mii Mage class would be pointless. They would use projectiles and we already have a type of Mii Fighter for that.

    I think a Mii Heavy could be cool.
    If you think about it, 2016 is one of the worst years in Nintendo history. The Wii U, the worst selling Nintendo console was at its lowest point and only a couple of Wii U games came out this year like Color Splash and Star Fox Zero and they were both hated. And many Smash 4 players hated Corrin and Bayonetta, also most Nintendo games that released this year are hated except Paper Jam and Triforce Heroes. Good thing 2017 is one of the best years in Nintendo history though. Odyssey and BOTW were Smash hits, ARMS was born and Splatoon 2 paved the way for a bright future for the Splatoon series.
    When do you think Smash 6 will release? My guess is 4 to 4½ years from now because by then the next console should be out and every new console means one new Smash game.

    I wonder if Nintendo even has plans for a 'new gen' system at this point. The Switch itself is a great concept. All they really need to do is make 'Switch 2.0' to give a hardware update to bring it up to snuff and enable more for developers to work with essentially.
    That one scene in Byleth's trailer showed him and 3 other characters on Ganon's stage. Could 4 Player Boss Battle mode be coming later?
    Would you accept Geno if he could transform into a cannon and freely aim and fire? We don't have a character who does that. You would use the control stick to aim in any direction and press A or B to Fire. This could work as his up special and when it's used in the air, the shots recoi him into the air.
    What if the Fire Emblem 17 protagonist is in Vol. 2? Fire Emblem 17 hasn't been announced yet but it could get announced soon and said character could get the Roy treatment.

    Byleth brought a giant bottle of salt to the Smash community that it couldn't handle. If we get another Fire Emblem newcomer I'm afraid the negative reaction from the Smash community will be levels beyond our imagination.

    Unless they somehow had time to prepare a FE remake during this bad year, the chances of this are frankly low. The quota has been filled from past game's "precedent", so it's free reign from here.

    But as usual, no one will listen to my more reasonable assumptions, so don't act surprised if nothing happens.
    Mining using Steve isn't that fun. It's funny that Sakurai reworked every single stage just for one character's ability and the ability isn't even that fun to use. Don't get me wrong Steve's other abilities are fun to use but in Smash 6 his material gauge could refill automatically without having to mine.

    Neither is charging up Cloud’s limit break or refilling Inkling’s paint. That doesn’t mean they should be completely reworked in a way that would make them not only broken but also completely inaccurate to their source material. This makes no sense, just because one small aspect of a character isn’t technically that fun dosent mean they should be changed so drastically

    Wouldn’t take the Mine out of Minecraft thus making it just...Craft?

    Best to throw that into the “bad idea bin”.
    Try a CPU team battle with Steve, Alex and the pig VS. Zombie, Enderman and Creeper. It's good Minecraft characters against bad ones.
    If you don't like that the Bomberman costume can't use bombs, try making a Mii Gunner using the Bomberman mask and the Ray Mik II costume. It's blue and white like the Bomberman costume is and you can give it the Grenade Launch and Bomb Drop specials.
    What if Age of Calamity Impa is FP8?

    Picture this: We get a Nintendo Direct at the end of October (a regular one, not a Partner Showcase) and at the end of the direct the Nintendo employee on camera thanks us for watching and then says "actually, there is one more thing we have to show you. Please take a look." Then Impa's Smash trailer is shown. After the trailer ends the screen says Impa will release on November 16th this year, just a few days before Age of Calamity releases since she would be an ad for the game.

    The only Zelda character who isn't in yet that's more important than Impa is Pig Ganon and technically he's already in the roster as his human form. But Impa definitely is the most iconic/important non Triforce welder in the series.

    Xenoblade could become the next Fire Emblem. They both have multiple main protagonists and Rex just could be in Vol. 2. Xenoblade could have 8 reps by the time the tenth Smash game releases.

    I wish. A roster with Shulk, Elma, Rex & Pyra, KOS-MOS, Fiora, and Metal Face would be sick. I know KOS-MOS isn't a Xenoblade character, but she is a Xenoverse character though.
    To many, Byleth was the least exciting Vol. 1 character but from a business standpoint it makes sense to save the least exciting Fighter's Pass character for last because if the first 4 characters were unexciting characters and the last character was an exciting character then not many people would want to buy the Fighter's Pass.

    I suppose you're right. Since talks of Steve being in Smash was negotiated as far back as 2015, I wouldn't be surprised if he was chosen because he did well on the Smash Ballot. Sakurai said Castlevania did well on the Smash Ballot yet Simon nor Alucard had any real presence in online polls. This shows that you can't underestimate the casual fanbase as they're huge in numbers even if they're not as vocal.
    Alm and Celica should have been alts for Marth and Robin. Celica doesn't use tomes but in Smash she could have invisible tomes so it will look like she's not using tomes. The Lightning Sword from Echoes would also function just like the Levin Sword.

    Alm has the issue of being left-handed. Celica has the issue of having a completely different fighting style then Robin, despite using the same weapon types.

    Alm could hold the Royal Sword in his right hand anyway and have it in his left hand for his Smash render.
    Is it true that different Square Enix employees own the rights to different SE characters? If so then Cloud will probably get cut in Smash 6. Hero might stay though since SE seems to be OK with having DQ spirits and music in Smash.
