Didn't they "deconfirm" Rex for DLC? I thought they said the Mii Fighter costume was in because the DLC roster was finalized already?Did... Did we survive?
...I don't want to celebrate just yet, we don't know the entire Spirits lineup, he might be one of them even now.
For now we may breathe for DLC, but it's going to be tough. Sakurai's wording makes me feel like Rex has been all but confirmed for DLC, and it looks like there'll be only 5 DLC characters. And I think ...Piranha Plant of all things is one of them? So we'd have to be one of three DLC characters not yet confirmed.
Well, look at it from the bright side.
"Goomba with a hat" argument could not be more dead than it is now.
I hate to be the pessimist, but for now, I'm keeping my expectations low. Until the game comes out, I don't want to call anything just yet.
On the bright side, Magolor and Prince Fluff are confirmed spirits, which means more modern Kirby stuff.
Yeah I just rewatched it. Rex's Mii Costume is with the "DLC Fighter Pass". Why would the Mii Fighter costume be in the bundle with the actual fighter? So I'm pretty sure he's just straight up deconfirmed for DLC.Did he? I must rewatch the direct at one point since I thought it was just the base game he mentioned.
Skull kid is an assist trophy.Well that direct... happened.
OK, I took a few notes. Here goes.
- Chibi-Robo (spirit)
- Octolings (spirit)
- Magolor (spirit)
- Dixie Kong (spirit)
- Shantae (spirit)
And Bandana Dee... well, he's in an odd spot. I noticed a normal Waddle Dee spirit in the showcase. That doesn't exactly mean bad things for Bandana Dee... unless that's all Sakurai sees him as. He is no doubt in a good spot for DLC, but if Sakurai sees him the same way that people who see him as a common mook do... well, we're in trouble.
- Shadow the Hedgehog (assist trophy)
- ...Isaac from Golden Sun (assist trophy)
- Rex/Pyra (too late in development and Mii Costume)
- Springman (assist trophy)
On the plus side, a lot of competition was weeded out. 5 DLC characters aren't a lot, and Geno, Banjo, Skull Kid, and Bandana Dee are all on my mind for the best chance IMO. Elma's chances also boosted a bit with Rex out of the way...
And then there's Piranha Plant. Does... that feel like a slap in the face to anyone?
Ah yes, I didn't notice that until checking the site afterward.Skull kid is an assist trophy.
Petey is our new best friend guys!Bandana Waddle Dee isn't in the game but at least the "goomba with a hat" argument is officially dead now. Thanks piranha plant....I guess?
