That is very nice artworkI'd put it as an understatement if I were to say that Amaterasu has been by far my most wanted character for Smash ever since I started playing Okami back in 2019 (nearly 2 years ago what the heck).
She has everything going for her in terms of what she can bring to the table: a unique moveset utilizing Divine Instruments, the Celestial Brush, and possibly even the Godhood mechanic; a beautiful artstyle that makes for some of the most visually appealing stage options based off Japanese ink-wash paintings(If she does get in I'm hoping the Ark of Yamato is her stage); a godlike (get it?) soundtrack that's uniquely Japanese (or Ainu for the Kamui soundtrack). She'd be one of the most unique newcomers in all aspects of her representation.
Is she a lock for DLC? Oh heck no! She definitely has her hurdles, ranging from her series's niche nature to tough competition with Capcom's other possible picks (although I definitely wouldn't be against Dante or Phoenix tho). Regardless, she still has a chance and so long as that is fact, I'll be supporting her to the very end!
Here's some art I made in support of her inclusion in like an hour or something in Clip Studio and Photoshop:
Going by the 2.5 to 3 months between the second Fighter Pass reveals and releases, we'll likely find out who FP9 is in March.Thanks!
Also, and I'm not one to believe that anniversary = Smash announcement, and I don't know if anyone's brought this up, but Okami's 15th anniversary is this April. Just saying....
I mean, he did say that the reasoning for it was for the upcoming releases of the new MH and G&G games but yeah. I'm willing to take an L in regards to a new Capcom rep.MH costumes seem to be back. And with an Arthur mii costume to boot, now that concerns me more about a Capcom characters chances.
Good to see it celebratedHappy 15th Anniversary to Okami!
