The video I'm about to mention is roughly 9 days old, so there's a chance that some of you have seen it already.
But DidYouKnowGaming made a video about an idea Retro Studios had for a Zelda Spin-off
And they brought in Zeltik for it. Who is a great Zelda Youtuber. The game itself sounds like it would have been pretty interesting.
And as is probably to be expected, my mind did go to Smash a little bit when hearing about this game and it's characters.
Now obviously these characters will never be in a Smash game. Characters from an unreleased game are already ineligible as is, but this game was straight up a rejected pitch. It might as well have negative chances.
But for yet another case of a fun "what-if?" I'll talk about it anyway. Now the kid who's gathering the pages of the Book of Ganon, Kori, seems to be the main character of the game in a way. But considering how the game is structured with Kori not even being involved in combat until the final boss, I kind of doubt he would be the chosen fighter from this game.
That leaves the 3 heroes and of those 3, my pick would be Krel.
From the items mentioned in the video, I think Krel's kit puts him in a tie with Dunar for the most unique concept. Mainly with the mechanics that could revolve around Krel being able to use the Ether Medallion to freeze Water he casts out of his Wand.
Dunar could do something similar what with being able to summon a Fire Elemental and being able to cause sources of fire to explode into even larger bursts of flame, and he has the added advantage of putting up a shield that could make him temporarily immune to fire, but I feel like sources of water are more reliable in Smash for utilizing this kind of concept than sources of fire would be.
Nothing against Seriph, but it sounds like she'd have a pretty similar kit to Revali. With the exception of the boomerang. So I think her concept potential is a little more limited compared to the other two.
Do you guys agree with my pick of Krel? Or would you pick one of the other hero's?
