    Dixie Kong's Barrel Of Support Spirits! New Art On Page 299 Post #11,933. Relive The DKC2 Celebration On Pg 298!

    I was already pretty surprised about the coincidence of Super Mario World releasing around same date as DKC2, but then comes pretty much an avalanche of meaningful release during this very date... didn't really prepare for this at all! I really was gonna play both SMW and DKC2, but I might...

    Toad/Captain Toad for Smash, Toad Brigade Assemble!

    It's kinda weird to be aware of that even today - I remember the day on E3 where they revealed the trailer the first time - and it really filled me with this nostalgia-inducing glee that I could describe as "seeing Mario and his surreal, whimsy wonderland the first time, all over again." And...

    Toad/Captain Toad for Smash, Toad Brigade Assemble!

    Kinda surprised about seeing MM2 getting somewhat outdone by ports here and there lately. I expected it to sell on a platform like Switch much more than MM1 was (Maybe I'm overlooking something...) Pretty odd to me too - considering this is probably one of my most beloved Mario-games ever...

    Reminds me of this one memetic video that I can't sadly find - I think it had Zelda masked to a clip of of DKC-cartoon where she got slammed out of the way by Cranky Kong with his "I'M GONNA BE A STAR"-bit from the very same song. Funniest thing I had ever seen.

    Maan, remembering Cranky being shown in GA really takes me back.

    Your username seems familiar... :kirby64: On that note, what a coincidence that DKCR was brought up right now - I just felt like revisiting the game... I have some of my own thoughts with it here and there, but for starters, I tend to treat DKCR and Tropical Freeze as separate/rebooted AUs for...

    You know, thinking on about the DK Warriors-concept... wouldn't the sheer badass and speedy combat style we saw in Jungle Beat be perfect for it? Take the crazy flair exhibited on JB's Boss Battles as inspiration for Kongs' moves and animations during combat, building them with this mindset...

    I've been going absent from here Smashboards for quite a long while now, but guess to me it took much longer to start settling on having to live with this realization that at some point, the Smash Bros that I remember growing with and feeling innocent dreams of seeing some of my own fave...

    To me it has this personal spot among these tunes for that very reason. I always felt DKC3's original soundtrack really captures it calming, yet curiosity-inducing mystique of the setting it's on. It really makes Northern Kremisphere feel like it could be an actual existing setting in reality as...

    Toad/Captain Toad for Smash, Toad Brigade Assemble!

    I'd really like to see a new Captain Toad-game in the future. Bit missing his adventures by now.

    I'm suddenly imagining about Dixie getting her own kind of float-mechanic to what Peach possesses today, but with maybe little more vertical applications. But probably not that heavily inspired. Also if we're discussing moveset overhauls... I'm still here waiting Wario to be more like his Wario...

    Exactly my point. I feel we could I feel that in another timeline, I would have actually been amused and okay by addition of Steve as a fighter, considering Nintendo working with Microsoft to produce the Wii U-versions and pushing for him in Ultimate this much anyway. Heck, I'd been okay with...

    As someone having to take leave from social media completely as of last weeks since Steve's reveal, this post is something I wish I could have written... if I hadn't become practically henpecked all these years by most of Smash's fanbase due constantly being told to just be happy/grateful about...

    Arle Nadja, Puyo Popper Extraordinaire pops into Smash Bros.! (New Management!)

    It had had it since Smash 4 though. The Mii Costume is a returning one.

    Mystical Ninja Goemon - Now supporting Goemon Mii costume. "ONLY $0.75" - In Goemon terms; that's a steal

    NGL, Steve and Minecraft-content feels uncharacteristically out of place to me next to Smash's current run of 3rd Parties encompassing so many types of characters mainly focused on 3rd Party-additions these days. As much as most would just praise the character for being "a new oddball...
