they're saving it for Elma. gotta be.According to this video’s description, there are 90 remastered music tracks in the Definitive Edition! If they give Unfinished Battle a full loop, it’s going to be Game of the Century.
On another note, why aren’t there any music tracks from X in Smash? There is literally no reason. People talked about how it might have been licensing issues, but Uncontrollable was in XB2. I really don’t think it’s an issue, which makes The absence all the more suspicious to me.
On twitter someone posted a pic of the menu where we could see equip for appearance, so yeah.Whoa, wait, there is? Where did you see that? I must've missed that somehow.
Ohh, that's really nice! I honestly hope that they make the most out of this, and also give us outfits based on other characters in the series, like giving us outfits based on characters from the other games, like giving us armour sets that look like the outfits of Elma, Lora, Jin or Lao. And maybe Tatsu for Riki.On twitter someone posted a pic of the menu where we could see equip for appearance, so yeah.
I mean if she guest appears in XCDE, or if XCXDE is announced... I have a feeling we’re getting an ARMS rep cause Nintendo specifically wants to promote it more. There’d be no point in promoting Xenoblade 2 at this pointAnd here I thought Elma was gonna be the shill pick.
Holy **** you could be right. Xenoblade X music not being in the base game could work in Elma's favor over Rex since music tracks is an important part of a Challenger Pack and there is already Xenoblade 2 music in the game.A thought
If we do get a Xenoblade rep this pass it won’t be Rex. Why? Yes, there’s an ARMS rep coming but there’s no guarantee it’ll be Spring Man or even Ribbon Girl (they’d have said so imo). It’ll probably be a spirit like Min Min. Spring Man being an AT aside, ARMS had no music in the base game, and all DLC fighters with the exception of Piranha Plant came with music.
now, Xenoblade 2 has music. Not a lot but it still has. By this logic it’d be pointless to add a fighter with more XC2 music. X, however, has no music at all. So I think and hope this works out in Elma’s favor
tl;dr you’ve heard of “music theory” now get ready for “LACK of music theory” - any series that has no music in base (or for series with multiple installments, music from that specific installment) has a shot for DLC. I’m also hoping for Octoling cause of this because there’s no Octo Expansion music (which Smash NEEDS).
I think they’d place more emphasis on X. I do see 2, DE and Torna music being included with Elma but the majority will be X tracksTo play Devils advocate, any new XB rep can be confirmed and with them they could potentially bring more XB2 music, XB DE music, and the missing XBX music.
Okay, but why would they announce and release another Xenoblade game in the same year as the one they're currently trying to push? I don't think Nintendo wants to risk creating confusion and competition between the two games, so I think XCXDE is more likely to be revealed next year with a possible late 2021/early 2022 release.An XCXDE reveal in the June video presentation, set for a Winter release, could help too
In short, “this story never truly ends...”Well, Elma's chances have certainly improved vastly as a result of the ARMS announcement. After Byleth I figured Cross had a better chance at that point, and he was a large stretch as well.
The thing with the ARMS deal is that... our fan rules are about to be broken, no matter what. For all intents and purposes, Spring Man is the poster boy, or lead man, for ARMS and was selected as the assist trophy for that reason. Any character that isn't Spring Man defeats the MC narrative. Spring Man himself would display an AT upgrading to fighter within the same game. And right now, it is VERY HARD to believe that the ARMS fighter will not be one of the five spirit characters. They are the best representatives for that series and were chosen for that reason. But who knows, chances are Nintendo wants to give Max Brass a big push. You never know. lol
Anyway, for Elma, this is good news for several reasons. Ignoring Sawano's absence here, Elma also has a potential future as well. Her story is NOT FINISHED. X has a hanging cliffhanger as of this post. It would be sad if Monolith Soft suddenly wanted to ignore X's existence and pretended it never happened, but I don't think that's the case. We'll see X again at some point. Whether they choose to reboot the Wii U game, or hop straight into a sequel remains to be seen. But all indications suggest Elma will remain a major player for future installments in some capacity.
Where as Rex's story is probably over, Elma's still continues and works better as a promo for future X content. Plus Sawano is very popular with anime fans, and Elma, as a PoC character, will probably have social media talking. That's a lot of cross over eyes balls looking in Smash's direction, and then indirectly, in Xenoblade X's direction. I think she'd be a great choice for Nintendo besides satisfying my bias.
Arms Party Crash Bash times said:
Over 3 months before the party Crash even started started seems way too early for it to coincide with planning for future Smash DLC. Especially when Smash only came out that year. Meanwhile the Arms event would've ended just as Banjo and Hero were revealed, halfway through the pass and a good time to start planning another season of DLC. A dead end for Elma. Ah well.Elma in XB2 said:August 25th, 2018
Elma proves that Nintendo needs more than the likes of Samus, Zelda and Peach etc for standout heroines.Elma is the coolest Xenoblade character in my opinion. A chick with dual wielding swords and guns? You almost can't get more bad*** than that.
I completely agree. We need more bad*** heroines in the roster like Elma, KOS-MOS, Krystal, Dixie Kong, Chun-Li, ect.Elma proves that Nintendo needs more than the likes of Samus, Zelda and Peach etc for standout heroines.
Her (and Lucina) especially have great visual design and for a very young female audience they give a "she's so cool, I would to be as cool as her!" vibe to that age range,
I swear this stock icon of Elma is my favorite stock icon among all the fan made ones on this site.Look alive BLADES, we have fan made character stock icons for our dear Colonel Elma. I don’t know if they’ve been posted here, but I wanted to bring your attention to the efforts of one polipede on Deviantart, who has made icons of not just the Colonel’s default appearance, but also her true form as well!
https://smashboards.com/threads/why-an-arms-rep-is-such-a-big-deal.503296/Wait, the front page where exactly? I wanna see this for myself.
A good read. Definitely encouraging.https://smashboards.com/threads/why-an-arms-rep-is-such-a-big-deal.503296/
It's further down in the article. There's a picture of Twintelle's spirit where it talks about how an ARMS character could open the door for spirit promotions. (I'd be baffled if we DIDN'T get a spirit promotion at the very least, since it would require the developers to ignore most of the popular characters)
She almost looks like KOS-MOS in this fan art. Pretty bad*** I would say.
