A good chunk of comments praised Falcom's music, so that was nice. And at least Rean got brought up; meanwhile Kevin is in some corner like "I also exist."

But in all seriousness, he's cool. And can y'all imagine if we actually got the SNK treatment with the songs? That would be so awesome.
Kevin will be back eventually! I have no doubts.

Imagine yeah, Trails, Ys, Popful Mail, Xanadu, Brandish etc music.

Ys music slaps (except Ys V... hopefully some day we'll get a proper port/remaster of it).

Following the thought expressed here a few posts earlier, I too have come to think that falcom could be getting its chance in the SSBU DLC.

1. It would be a Company bringing in the main character of a franchise that's never been represented in Smash.
2. Ys has a long running history as one of (if not THE) pioneers of the Action RPGs (oooooh Ys so goooood!)
3. Adol (depending on what game(s) they would use to create his moveset) could be a fun character to play as. The more recent releases have added the Flash Guard and Flash Move mechanics, making battles against enemies really fast-paced and engaging (and rewarding once one masters these two mechanics).
4. Did I mention Y's music slaps (HARD)? :denzel:
5. It would help bring awareness of the Ys series (and other falcom IPs via Mii Costumes, and music perhaps) and could even serve to promote Monstrum Nox (although it already released, but the game's localization should come eventually).

Just the thought of having Adol finally meet Link in battle, and on top of that Cloud as well... it would be crazy. Fingers crossed ladies and gents. :2gud:

Sakurai dropped by in a smash tournament. Working on the next DLC. The tournament was held at Odaiba Oedo Onsen Monogatari theme park.
Nihon Falcom Corp. is less than an hour away. This is kind of a stretch. Just thought I'd bring it up.

That's actually an interesting bit of info. Honestly, putting aside all the current speculation going around; I feel that a Falcom rep would be a HUGE boon to Ultimate's roster. Adol, Estelle, Rean; I'd be down for either of the three. Not only would it be a new third party collaborating on the game, but it would bring awareness to some of the hidden gems in gaming. I say hidden because, unlike say Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem and such; not as many know of the Ys, or The Legend of Heroes series. These two Falcom IPs have had a long history in gaming, and have withstood the test of time with new releases, and unadulterated engaging gameplay, lore, and music (oh the MUSIC). Here's to hoping for Falcom to join in.

Stretch but it's interesting haha.

Also Ys 9 bullet point interview translation with Kondo lately also has spoilers for Ys 9 though https://docs.google.com/document/d/1efvlyHVUiJxARXQn-tgMX5bkWoD3ZrWDgy0ZCS_-Okw/edit

Posting again sorry but man we avoided some bullets today. Between leakers saying #5 isn't Dante, NINTENDO being like RE spirits hey! and Verge saying Nipion Ichi is basically not in the running for a character.

We have some stuff to be thankful for haha.

Also a friend of mine found this in Papagenos server, a mere set of discussion points but the fact that ADOL is there is kind of encouraging!

Well, that didn't last long, as Verge said Falcom isn't in the running for FP5.

It didn't seem like a given to me anyway, but this is still not helpful.
Okay, so it looks like Falcom (and Ubisoft) are both out of the running according to Vergeben

Link to the Post

Edit: Ninja'd
I'm still glad people are just talking about Falcom more to the point someone asked in the first place. Honestly us spreading the word is still a good thing! Plus this is still only for character 5 we can't give up :D

Welp, I was going to post it, but it's a bit of a relief not being the bearer of bad news. We're not fighter #5 but we're still in the running. The news kinda sucks, but the attention it brought to the company is still a good thing. Let's keep supporting Adol and Nihon Falcom in general, and here's hoping recent events bring in more fans.

Exactly! The thought that Falcom has been mentioned by a notorious leaker is Huge.

It is fantastic news but it's such a strange move without announcing 1 and 2 along with it. Still, I will not complain because it is better than getting nothing at all (Sky trilogy when though?)
I'm guessing it has to do with the split in who has the rights (in localized places anyways) Xseed might not want to give those up either.

Every Kiseki game being on a portable console sans Cold Steel 3 (and 4) is no longer an issue! Falcom games are perfect for mobile, and being on the Switch is the best possible outcome I can think of. Nihon Falcom's relationship with Nintendo is getting stronger. And now detractors can no longer argue that newer Kiseki games have no Nintendo connection.

This has been a pretty great year for us Falcom fans.

hopefully someone will talk to them and get them on there i'm going to still buy the game even tho i'd rather beat the first two just because i want to show falcom there is an aduenice on switch because weirdly they don't think that up to me to prove them wrong i've been waiting for another chance to buy one of there games on a nintendo console so i got to put up or shut up.

We'll have to see, as it stands, CS3 isn't the worst starting point. It's one of the weirdest sure, but to it's credit it's like the only mid arc game that could work as one lmao. Because you still get introduced to the older stuff through newer characters eyes, but you do miss that "aha" you'd usually get.

Not to mention tons of casual spoilers of CS2 and AO.
