  • The term kids game means kids are the only primary target. All Smash Bros. fans including the ones that are kids should all be equally important regardless of age.
    This "new life" of social distancing and staying apart from others is all just temporary until the vaccine is ready. Once enough people get the vaccine, life will return to how it's supposed to be.

    I'm with you on that. I'm fine being inside, the only things plaguing me are boredom and homework.

    I wouldn't mind this temporary "new life" if our president was actually trying to stop the virus and continuing lockdown. He's pretty much completely reopened the country, and everyone threw their common sense and safety standards out the window. He's also refused to put the country under lockdown once the second wave hits. It's gotten to the point where I want to move to New Zealand because their president actually gives a **** and almost completely destroyed the virus there at this point (usually 0-2 new cases every two days) I've had enough.

    Companies could go out of business if the lockdown goes on any longer. Plus people have cabin fever from having to stay home all the time.
    Rare pretty much invented anything you normally think of when you think of the Donkey Kong franchise. Without them, DK wouldn't have the design he has now, Diddy Kong and King K. Rool wouldn't exist and Tropical Freeze and other more recent DK games wouldn't exist because they took the Rare games's influence.
    Banjo-Threeie should be a prequel to Nuts and Bolts where we learn how Gruntilda's head got buried in the rocks.

    We already kind of find that out in Banjo-Tooie. After the Hag 1 explodes her whole body is destroyed aside from her head and everyone is playing catch with her head at the end. They probably throwed her head off of the tower afterwards and she landed in those pile of rocks untl she got out in Nuts & Bolts.

    I figured she had spent eight years getting from Cauldron Keep to Spiral Mountain while stuck as a head, and getting through the rocks was the last step. Being buried under a rock for two years and dying just made her angrier.
    Some may think Wolf deserved to be Smash 4 DLC more than Lucas did. Here's the thing though, Lucas is more unique and fun to use than Wolf is so Lucas was higher priority.

    lucas is more unique than wolf?
    How?

    Lucas still feels way closer to ness than wolf does to fox, and while both still play way differently compared to who they were based off of, lucas has always felt "closer" to ness.

    Lucas has a tether grab and he can use PSI Magnet to heal himself.

    ness has psi magnet and it literally functions just like lucas's it's just in front of him.
    Who could possibly be the villian in Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition: Future Connected? All of the main story's villians were killed so they may or may not invent a new villian.

    What else is new, us Streets of Rage fans had to wait until 4's release to find out if anyone would replace Mr. X.
    Prediction, this is when each Vol. 2 character will release:

    FP6: June 2020.
    FP7: August 2020.
    FP8: October 2020.
    FP9: December 2020.
    FP10: Feburary 2021.
    FP11: April 2021.
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    December 2021 is a placeholder end date, so we don't know when we'll get any of the other characters, so it's best not to predict anything. It rarely works anyway.

    well as long as new anime series are staying delayed..don't count on this schedule...
    The N64 version of Conker's Bad Fur Day didn't release in Japan but Japan would still recognize Conker from Diddy Kong Racing and Rare Replay. Conker needs to join.
    If Banjo gets a new game it should be called Banjo-Rebootie because it would be a reboot.
    Why do people still think relevance matters when deciding the roster? Banjo shows that discontinued franchises can still be part of Smash.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Because most people think Nintendo wants Sakurai to choose entirely new characters for promotional reasons for the majority of the roster. Though that isn't entirely the case. We get a good chunk of popular, unrelevant, and legacy characters in each Smash game. There is enough diversity in each Smash's newcomer section to go around. Though, Fire Emblem got 3 newcomers and a cut Melee veteran back in Smash 4 which I would say is why too many characters to add for one franchise in one Smash game.
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    Because people refuse to study history. It's been that way since Melee.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    KirbyWorshipper2465 KirbyWorshipper2465 That's true. There is even people that refuse to study real history and you know what they say: "Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it."
    What would happen if Jonsey from Fortnite was a Mii Gunner costume?
    Remember, don't blame China for the pandemic. That will help lead to a war between the US and China and things will be worse than they are already.

    i don't hate China but it is kinda their fault we have to deal with this ****, so people are in the right to blame China, but hating on them or be racistic that's just rediculous af.

    If anything, the blame should lay on the animal (consumption) market. At least they're finally treating dogs like pets now, as it should.

    America's own government is heavily to blame for why it took off so much here. An idiot president who constantly claims it's a "hoax" by his political rivals until it becomes too late is a huge part of the reason we're in this mess. Add in how he lies through his teeth all the time making bogus claims on treatments, including telling people that injecting/drinking a disinfectant cleaner will help, and you not only have to worry about people dying from the virus, but by doing something stupid all because they hang on to every word their "leader" tells them as if it's true, while ignoring all professionals who are telling them point blank to not listen to ANY "medical" advice coming from Chester Cheetoh's lips.

    Our country right now doesn't have a leader, and in fact has a dangerous compulsive liar who doesn't care what damage he may cause to others.
    Remember, Banjo has four mainline games, not three. Grunty's Revenge counts even though it's a GBA game.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    I never played Grunty's Revenge myself, but I'm pretty sure it's kind of acknowledge as filler of certs since Nuts & Bolts didn't bring it up. I know it sounds stupid, but honestly I think Rare kind of pretends the GBA games never happened for some reason. Though I would love to check Grunty's Revenge out sometime as it looks underrated.
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    KirbyWorshipper2465
    Working at Microsoft made it risky to reference Nintendo products, at least when Phil Spencer wasn't running things.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Plus Grunty's Revenge was a GBA game and Microsoft has never released a portable Xbox console before so there was no way of putting it on XBLA or Rare Replay because of that I guess.
    I wonder why Origami King wasn't revealed in the March direct. They could have saved it for the end of the direct and it would be the "there's one more thing to show you" kind of reveal.
    Gruntilda is to Banjo what Dr. Robotnik is to Sonic.
    Why was "SSBU is for good boys and girls" the highlight of the Terry direct? We already had a feeling it was for good boys and girls.
    So...I see you're quite aware of BK, eh...

    You're kinda acting concerned as if BK's getting cut from the roster. What do you think are the odds of him NOT getting in the next Smash game? If you were to ask me however, I'd say Nintendo bigwigs are gonna keep him in to keep fans like ya happy.

    PS. Try and say BK next time? Leaving Kazooie out is a microaggression for discrediting women.
    After Rare and Microsoft see how positively received the Banjo DLC was, hopefully they'll change their minds about Banjo-Threeie and decide to make it. But it should be for both XBOX One and Switch. If Minecraft can be on other companies' platforms then why can't a new Banjo game be?
    Strong Badam

    1. Minecraft is a multiplayer game, presumably Banjo wouldn't be. Multiplayer games benefit a lot more from cross-platform releases, eating into the value of exclusivity for a major platform owner.
    2. Minecraft had already been ported to numerous consoles by Mojang before Microsoft acquired it. It was never funded by Microsoft in order to entice people to buy their hardware, so exclusivity was never part of why they got it.
    3. Releasing on both Switch and Xbox One would require Banjo-Threeie's graphical fidelity to be significantly worse to match the Switch's specs.
    4. Why wouldn't Banjo-Threeie be an Xbox Series X title in the first place?
    Inkling Man
    Inkling Man
    So why can Super Lucky's Tale be on Switch but not a Banjo game?
    Why do people say Banjo is a non Japanese character? He originated in a DK game and that makes him a Donkey Kong character. Banjo-Kazooie is a Donkey Kong spin off game because a Donkey Kong character is the main character of it. It doesn't matter who owns the rights to Banjo, he's still part of the DK series.

    Diddy Kong and King K. Rool were made in England too and they're also Donkey Kong characters.
    Zachmac
    Zachmac
    ^Yeah, and some people consider them western Donkey Kong characters.

    If anything though, these discussions can show how arbitrary the distinction between "western" and "Japanese" characters can be. I don't think it's something we should get too hung up on.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    In origin, Diddy and K. Rool are British characters because of being created by Rare but by ownership they're Japanese characters because of being owned by Nintendo. So in that regard, currently and forever they're Japanese characters.
    What type of characters would you prefer: Western characters in Smash or Japanese characters in Smash? Prefer the latter tho.
    What if Baldi (Baldi's Basics) was a Mii costume for Swordfighters? He can use his ruler as a sword.
    If Sakurai said Buzzy Beetle got the most votes among negotiable and realizable characters, would you believe him? The ballot was mainly used to decide the Ultimate newcomers. Smash 4 Bayonetta was probably just an ad for Bayonetta 2.

    Megadoomer Megadoomer Exactly! I voted for K. Rool in the Smash Ballot and I was disappointed to hear that Bayonetta won or supposedly was the most easily negotiated popular character to put in from the Ballot into Smash 4. I stop thinking about it because it was over afterwards and I had no control over the matter. Plus I had low to mid hopes K. Rool was going to make it as DLC at the time and I really wasn't sure if he would be popular enough in the Smash Ballot or not to make it in. I'm thankful I got K. Rool, Ridley, and Banjo & Kazooie in Ultimate and I don't care if Bayonetta beat them in the Ballot or not. Besides, the Smash Ballot was a suggestion box not an election as almost everyone saw it as.
    We need more non iconic 3rd parties besides Bayonetta and Joker. Banjo and Terry don't count because they USED to be icons. I'm counting characters who were never iconic.
    Banjo wouldn't have lost his icon status if Microsoft used him correctly. Why don't they use Banjo very often?

    Like Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario said, a majority of the original staff that made the N64 Banjo-Kazooie games and Rare games in general in the 90s all left the company right when the buyout was going on. A lot of Rare employees wanted to stay with Nintendo while the higher ups at Rare and the Stamper brothers the founders were the ones that were "O'key dokey!" With Microsoft purchasing their company since that would get them a lot of money out of it.

    I believe Rare and Microsoft either didn't care or just didn't know what to do with all the old Rare IPs after so much of the original staff left. Same thing with Nintendo and DKC since Rare and the staff working on those games left Nintendo completely after the Microsoft purchase and Nintendo didn't know what to properly do with the franchise until they gave it to Retro to work on it in 2010. It's why DKC was in spin off hell in the 2000s.

    Imagine where Banjo would be today if Rare used him correctly. He would be at least as famous as Crash Bandicoot.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Banjo & Kazooie could have been Microsoft's platforming mascot in general had they used them more properly over the years. It's sad really because I wouldn't be complaining about the buyout if Microsoft had Rare pumping out quality games like in the 90s every so often.
    If you like sharing your ideas so much, feel free to visit my general female character thread! I'D love to hear your ideas there!
    Every DLC character has someone to keep them company except Terry.
    Byleth has Sothis.
    Banjo has Kazooie and the Jinjos.
    Joker has Arsene and the P5 crew.
    Hero has a Slime and other DQ heroes.
    I'm really hoping FP6 is Spring Man. He's the most logical choice to promote ARMS.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    I would only want Spring Man so he could destroy the Assist Trophy, Spirit, and Mii costume deconfirmed fan rule forever. Other than that, I would prefer Min Min as the Arms rep over him or any other Arms character.

    And yet Smash is unwilking to add more women to their already male dominated roster.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Well the order of franchise character inclusion always goes like this in Smash: Protagonist, co-protagonist, antagonist. The protagonist always goes first no matter who it is. We will always get the person on the cover first before we get their friends and their enemies in.
    It's weird how the morale of Ralph Breaks the Internet goes directly against the morale of Wreck-It Ralph. In Wreck-It Ralph, we learn that the characters shouldn't leave their games while the arcade is open or else their game could get unplugged. So Vanellope shouldn't have left Sugar Rush.
    Will Conker be in Vol. 2?
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    I would attribute that to Banjo and Conker being partially connected both within the same game as well as paired games. I would argue that at least Rash and Fulgore are more likely than Conker. That being said, that would also require having a second Microsoft Rep which I don’t see happening and, if it did, they wouldn’t go the Rare route again and opt for Master Chief, Gears of War, or Minecraft probably.

    Then again, I never got into Conker. The game never really got me interested but I’m not a fan of potty-humor. Banjo though was my jam and I’m still a dedicated fan of Killer Instinct; both when it was Nintendo and the rebooted version. So perhaps me not seeing Conker as appearing on FP2 is simply bias. I’m willing to bet money we won’t be getting another Microsoft Rep.
    Perkilator
    Perkilator
    Eh, doubt it
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    I wouldn't be surprised though if Master Chief get's in before this game is all over.
    What are some companies that should never be put in Smash?

    - Disney. Sorry Sora fans but if Disney got a rep, that could lead to Disney buying Nintendo and nobody would want that to happen. Plus Smash is for video game characters, not Disney characters.

    - Sony. Nintendo and Sony are bitter rivals so Sony characters have no place in Smash. Unless Nintendo and Sony end their rivalry and become friends. (Delusional fantasy.)

    Perkilator Perkilator I don’t know much about that allegations that JDCabrera JDCabrera mentioned and, to date, they are still allegations due to, from what I’ve read, a link to Epstein and his island of underage debauchery. Until these allegations are true and his involvement there comes to light, I’m not going to cast judgement. Crash is still good. Hell, even though I’m angry at Bluzzard with with-holding prize money and event banning for making pro-Hong Kong statements, I wouldn’t be crushed if Tracer/Thrall/Diablo/Kerrigan made it into Smash. A bit disappointed because Blizzard, a company I have long loved, is now involved. So, even if these allegations are true about Activision, Crash getting in would still be a good thing in my book. I mean, Hero got in and the DQ music composer is a racist, homophobe, Holocaust denier, etc
    I like how the P5 crew watches their language during Joker's trailer. Doesn't Ryuji usually swear in P5?

    Super Smash Bros. is a game for good boys and good girls
    Inkling Man
    Inkling Man
    And everyone else. If it was only for good boys and girls, it wouldn't have any Persona 5 content at all.
    Saying Banjo-Kazooie is a Mario 64 rip off is like saying Donkey Kong Country is a Super Mario Bros. rip off. Banjo-Kazooie and Donkey Kong Country were both created by Rare also Banjo is a Donkey Kong character who has his own series since he first appeared in Diddy Kong Racing.
    Anyone who thinks Banjo's Breegull Blaster mode is useless doesn't understand its usefulness. It's meant to be used on opponents that are right in front of Banjo because doing that sends the victims upward and then you can jump up to where they are and keep shooting them while they're vulnerable.

    I thought we were past that. People would say that the first few weeks or so, until people like Tearbear and Trela started showing the kind of stuff you can do with it. It's definitely deceitful, for the better, but still not a move I'll ever use on purpose.
