    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    I just feel uncertain. I do believe people overblow Japan argument. It's just that Sakurai and Nintendo didn't have enough time to cover other western properties.

    How much will Nintendo want to invite Lara? Square Enix will no longer have Tomb Raider. I am not sure to what extent Nintendo or next Smash director wants to contact Embracer Group for her.

    I actually worked on game rating before like playing and listing various rating elements for each game. It also involved researching foreign rating agency. I understand how Sakurai felt when he was dealing with CERO. Rating board can be really stingy and strict while lax on the other time...

    The same should apply to realistic firearm argument.

    If they add Genshin rep, it will be Aether/Lumine. We haven't seen third party that's not protagonist coming before respective protagonist. Yeah, another generic anime swordman... but, there is always way to give different spin. They will probably go with either summoning other characters like...

    It's cancelled because they didn't add Master Chief.:4pacman: 2A from Nier is there, so Nintendo fanrule don't apply.

    I got bored, so I decided to bring back question I asked in the past thread and replies. Mostly same picks except few. Kudos to those who got Sephiroth and Steve. Dante is the major miss, but tbf, Sakurai did say he was heavily requested, so people got pretty close. Same...

    I remember seeing Japanese Vtuber playing battletoad. So, it's easy to get impression. Even with age of internet, it's still difficult to measure how popular each series is in certain region.

    I know Half-Life being a thing there, but TF2? Not trying to snark, but do you have proof?

    Yeah that one. I don't know why forgot the last bit part although I think I read it. I seriously doubt Nintendo will pass up Halo because of Japan.

    I remember Banjo scoring high, but in Japan? Do you have link? I guess I should've said relatively instead of exclusively. But my point stands

    Official Next Smash - Speculation & Discussion Thread

    The only character that Japanese fans exclusively wanted was Hero. Banjo is kinda reverse. Rest of DLC have world wide appeal. So, I am not sure it's really that biased toward Japan. It's just that each newcomer takes much more time and resource. Character that was really skewed toward west was...

    Mario Kart Tour? Pokemon Go? Fire Emblem Hero? If I'm not mistaken, they are all live service games. I guess you can say Smash is different case, but who knows when Nintendo changes its mind?
