I finished the game and even made a write-up for it.
Can you tell I really loved it? (I also plan on watching the movie tomorrow which I'm looking forward to cause I've heard nothing but positive things about it)

I just realized I'm not on the supporters list, so I'd like to request that.

Hmm.... it seems the owner of this thread hasn't been on this site since 2019.... is there a way a mod could add me or something then?

So this is a bit random, but I had a dream last night where I was watching a Smash Ultimat reveal trailer for Tales of. It was an anime trailer where a bunch of Tales of protagonists were fighting each other over a Smash invitation kinda like the Arms trailer for Min Min 😆 Lloyd, Luke, Velvet, Jude, Milla, and Cress, they were all fighting each other for the invitation before Yuri shows up to claim it.

Does anybody else think that this would be an awesome trailer for a Tales of character reveal?

Oh hey this was an idea I had lol

I’d imagine it’d be an animated trailer probably by Production IG or Ufotable, it’d have the Smash envelope go to various different locales from the Tales series, stopping at different protagonists who all miss the envelope, before finally stopping at Yuri who catches it, it’d be really cool

Also I know that some people aren’t crazy about trailers where characters commentate over what’s going on, but it’d be really cool to hear the Vesperia party talk over the gameplay section honestly (This also brings me to another idea that I had where the stage could have a Smash Taunt in the form of Skits where the characters will comment on the fighters like the Codecs or Guidances which I think would represent that aspect of the series well)

I honestly wish they'd stop with this kind of trailer, it just marks the ones who failed to catch the invitation as "not good enough for Smash" at best or losers at worst and (at least to me) sours the reception for the chosen character itself - I've never been able to like robin/min min and can't fully enjoy playing as Terry, someone I always liked in every game he appeared (because the trailers made it look like they got in over other subjective cooler characters). At least Rex didn't get beat up offscreen and mocked mercilessly for no reason in the game. I'd probably hate Sephiroth's inclusion and would likely not play as him if he killed/beat up Tifa/Barett/Aerith to steal the invitation in the trailer.

Not that any of this would affect my reaction to Yuri because he's by far my most wanted Tales character, but better be safe than sorry :upsidedown:

To be fair, the main reason why both Terry and Min Min's trailers are like that is likely because both Fatal Fury/King of Fighters and ARMS are fighting games, so those guys fighting over a Smash invitation makes sense even if fans might hate which character is chosen. I highly doubt that a Tales of character's reveal will be like theirs since it's a JRPG series.

Trailers directly about one character getting in over another are always bound to upset someone and I feel like it'd be especially unwise in this situation where, uh, there seems to be a non-zero amount of people who want one Tales rep and that particular one only. So, I would not advise and do not want it... but, honestly, I wouldn't be that shocked given the types of set-ups we've had thus far.

I'm assuming you're talking about Lloyd, right?

Actually it seems to be a trend with the other
Mothership Tales of protags too even outside of Lloyd, I've seen ones for Velvet and Ludger for example.

It's one of those series where it's just all or nothing for their characters it feels like lol.

Yeah, I'm talking broad strokes. It's an IP where a lot of people have only played one game in it and tend to be a little bit "I want X or nothing" as a result...

That said, I think Namco would know better, especially with scenarios like how Tales of Destiny is so much more popular in Japan then it is in the west. I feel like that a "They all fight over the invite" trailer would be a recipe for actual disaster here.... Terry and Min Min at least contexts that, intentionally or not, led them to being commonly speculated (and in Terry's case, leaked to hell and back) about.

Plus tbh I feel like if we get Yuri then it’s mostly going to center around Vesperia content, so the characters that appear in the hypothetical trailer likely won’t feature heavily outside of Mii Costumes most likely (Lloyd at least would return we know that for certain)

That being said Mii Costumes of other Tales protags would be great, Milla and Velvet would make for excellent Brawlers and I could see a Cress swordfighter which Sakurai previously mentioned was considered, but I feel from Vesperia we’d also get a Flynn swordfighter and maybe even a Repede hat since they like giving the mascots hats typically.

There’s a lot of potential for them honestly.

I'm hoping for Repede to maybe show up in a couple of Yuri's taunts or victory animations 😊

I feel you. Honestly, Tales of Vesperia and Tales of Symphonia are the only two Tales games I'm really interested in, mainly for their characters.

I originally wanted him to fight alongside Repede as a sort of duo character like Duck Hunt but then when I really thought about it it wasn’t really a practical idea and wouldn’t accurately represent his appearance in the game, he doesn’t really need to bring someone to fight alongside with him.

I think it’d be great though having Repede in his taunts though, and of course one of the victory animations to be the Cry of Victory!

Yeah I don't think a duo character for Yuri and Repede will work as well as it does for Banjo & Kazooie, Ice Climbers or Duck Hunt. I'm with ya on the Cry of Victory though as one of Yuri's victory animations.
