Who is Edward Falcon?/What is Power Stone?
Power Stone is a fighting series by Capcom that consisted of 2 games on the Dreamcast that were released in 1999 & 2000. Both games were also combined for a PSP re-release in 2006. Edward Falcon is the most recognizable fighter similar to cases like Ryu & Street Fighter.


Why should this be in Smash?
The series (at least among the people I have talked to irl that know of it) is sometimes roughly compared to Smash but in 3D. There is no competitive side as crazy items and transforming stages are always on but Smash can get like that & still be a blast to a lot of people especially when playing with friends. That in a 3D world is what makes this series very memorial for some people and led to its cult following. It is an obscure series that would need to be re-visited and brought to a Nintendo platform to even have a shot plus there are a lot of other more qualified Capcom reps to pick from but this would still be a cool nod & addition for Smash.


Moveset Ideas

I am not one for coming up with movesets but a few thing I will say is that a big element of the game was to collect the Power Stones to transform as you can see in the picture of Edward Falcon and his transformation above. Perhaps that can be a final smash or work similar to joker. Another idea is to maybe implement some of the Powerstone items into the moveset. It would also be cool to base the alt colors off of other characters from Power Stone.

Stage/Music Ideas
Once again among people irl who I have talked to about Power Stone, Blue Sky Area seems to be the most memorable stage. It would be tough to capture everything the original has but would be amazing to see pulled off.

Spirit Ideas

Ryoma: Primary, Sword Attack Up


Rouge: Primary, Fire/Explosion Resist Up


Galuda: Support, Fist Attack Up


Ayame: Support, Thrown Items Up


Accel: Support, Ray Gun Equipped


Pete: Primary, No Effect


Julia: Support, Floaty Jumps


Pride Falcon: Primary, Rocket Belt Equipped


Mel: Support, Item Auto Grab

UPDATE
So this article recently came out. Really cool to see some discussion of a future for Power Stone (and even potentially on Switch) especially from someone who worked on the series. I still do not have high hopes for a Power Stone Revival soon let alone a Smash inclusion but this is at least a step in right direction.

Thanks for checking out this thread!

Pretty cool thread. I’ll support. Power Stone really does need some more love. It was nice hearing the creator saying he’d like to make a remaster one day and it was a very fun and innovative game for its time. Original post could use some spry icing up a bit like a moveset. Could have a gimmick that involves collecting power stones and then transforming into their power change form. Edward is obviously the no brainer pick being the closest thing the game has to a mascot and all
