Without going into detail, I do hope the concept shown isn't going to be what they go with for 30th anniversary game. I mean, even if it is I'll still get it, I love what I was shown and hope it happens eventually. I'm just saying it would rub me the wrong way is all, despite how silly that sounds.

I'm thinking [name expunged] will be the game after that, if it comes to fruition. 30th will probably be more like Chronicle 2 or 15th version 3.

I don't consider Fatman to be credible, I can't think of a single rumor he said himself that was correct.
Besides, I feel like an "Iwata tribute" character would've happened already at this point if we were getting one, there's no way that they would plan a tribute only now, and especially this late into the game's DLC cycle considering we weren't originally going to have anything beyond the first Fighters' Pass.

If Arle actually got in, and her Classic Mode involved puzzle games, you think :ultkirby: would be of the opponents?
Either he's the first opponent, or as I'd prefer, he'd be the "boss battle". Likely with Dedede and Meta Knight in the latter case, who represented Satan and Rulue in Avalanche. That, or a call-back to Melee where you fight a normal Kirby, and then a horde of Puyo colored Kirbies (though this time, they don't have copy abilities) or a giant one.

In Japan it'd still make sense because of Kirby Star Stacker and the SNES version.

But what if part of the classic route involves the Lip Mii Swordsman costume battle?

You know.... i feel bad for those Nintendo characters currently in Smash, Aside from not having their Ultimate Puzzle Rep (You know who), Dr. Mario, Pikachu, Yoshi, Wario, and Kirby combined as Puzzle reps would never stand a chance against Arle. Knowing that Arle is a Strong mage, she could EASILY MAIM the fighters currently on the roster and upcoming challengers, Yes, EVEN DOOMGUY AND CRASH.

Speaking of Arle, what if Amitie and Ringo became alternate characters like the DQ Heroes and Bowser Jr.? Speaking of Ringo, her spells can remain the same, only they use elemental effects like Arle and Amitie.

Well yeah of course they'd lose against Arle, they don't know how to play Puyo yet /s.

And here it is! If you want this shirt to show your love of Puyo Puyo, better hurry, because I have no idea if they'll restock.

Although I still support Arle, as time goes on, I find it more likely that PuyoPuyo in general will get spirit'd.
...

Random Thought: Has SEGA had a spirit event yet? I may just be forgetting one, but I can't recall one off the top of my head...

Arle definitely is at some risk, but I think she could very well end up playable as well. It'd make some sense for Sakura Wars or Catherine: Full Body to get spirits if they wanna promote upcoming games though (assuming neither will be getting playable representation)...

Pretty certain this was asked before but can Amitie and Ringo work as Arle's Erdrick/Solo/Eight?
I've wondered that myself. I'm sure Amitie could work either way (Echo/alt. skin), but Ringo... well, they could give us the explanation that Arle (and Amitie) taught Ringo their spells in preparation for Smash.

Hey, if Nintendo was willing to use that kind of excuse to hand-wave why Ness and Lucas can use PSI moves they don't normally use, then...

I could see Streets of Rage getting a Spirit Event too, given the SoR4 release.

No, i just can't let Puyo Puyo get spirited away from Smash. If that were to happen, we'll NEVER get the Justice for Puzzle games, and the whole Roster will be Cursed once the terrifying Doom Slayer and the Bloodthirsty Scorpion WRONGFULLY invade Smash Bros (if that were to happen and replace Arle and Lip's supposed roster spot!)

Seriously, Mai Shiranui is NOT allowed to even be a Cameo because she looks sexualized, so, Doom Slayer and Scorpion cannot be allowed to join without having a Lewd game character like Asuka from Senran Kagura being in Smash first, and we can't have Asuka before Neptune from Neptunia, and we CAN'T HAVE A COMPILE HEART Representative like Nepu before having Arle as the first Compile representative (Because that is where Puyo Puyo by historical accuracy came from)

What a way to start Sonic's anniversary, heh.

Breathe, man, I think you're having a stroke here. There's no correlation between any of those. :dizzy:

There's an equal chance that none of those characters (let alone Lip) could show up at all. Characters are asked for, or they're not, nothing is "stolen". Just missed opportunities that couldn't be gotten around to in time, that's all.

Besides, Doom fans already think the marine's out of the running because some guy that wasn't the Bethesda prez said nothing serious happened with Nintendo.

Using the puyos for each pixel is... It's actually quite genius.
