A part of me really wishes that they would just announce all DLC-Characters. Some of the fanbases are getting...unpleasant to say the least.

btw I was looking at some Mii-Creations yesterday and i was pleasantly surprised how many Elma-Miis i saw. Some of them looked pretty good too.
Honestly, same. just give silhouette teasers so we wouldn't have to be tortured by this wait anymore

and just PLEASE reveal who Brave is already

True enough. I doubt that Joker Frompersonafive topped many popularity polls before he was announced.
I remember a poll on reddit a few weeks before smash came out that had Joker at 49th (out of 50). This list is easily made with the hopes that anyone can get it. Like the heavy from tf2 (please someone make a kit for him, how would he work?) The funny thing is that the top ten characters normally stay the same on almost all rankings.

I never understood the point of these polls, is nintendo really gonna look into these and actually give them the characters they want? Not likely, and many of these choices are just funny in my opinion.
They would only look at whatever is "realizable" to them if characters like Bayonetta is anything to go by.

It's not. They omitted some characters from it in follow-ups.

"It should also be noted that we chose to omit the following Fighters: -Those who did not originate in a Video Game -Those who are already present as Assist Trophy fighters -Fighters who did not receive at least 25 votes. In total, these Fighters made up roughly 35% of the votes" 34% were Shrek votes and the 20% were Spongebob votes
"Here are a few tidbits about the data: -The total number of votes received in this ballot is 22,619. -Of the total amount of votes, there were only 85 characters whose votes received over 25 votes. -These 85 characters make up 14,719 out of the 22,619 votes. "


Yeah, this is the results of the Reddit Poll:

But now we know who was picked from that poll so whatever placement you positioned doesn't necessarily matter to your potential inclusion into Super Smash Bros:

E3 in a month!

Rational/pessimist brain: XCX won't be there at all
Delusional/optimist brain: what if Nintendo's E3 layout this year is inspired by X or a new game and they have alien architecture and landscape designs holy poop

There'll probably be something from Monolith Soft at least, but personally I'm not really interested in any of their other output.

Personally, as long as they don't hire Saito or any other artist that seemingly draws with their boner, I'd say anything from Monolith Soft has a very good chance to be at least promising.

So, with a Mario Maker 2 Direct tomorrow, I’d guess that there’s a good chance of seeing Elma in Smash as well as Animal Crossing. Any other Elma-related predictions for the Mario Maker direct that you guys have?

Last second prediction for reals though:
they'll have a Rex (maybe more) costume for SMB1 but not an Elma one. That's about the level of disappointment I'm prepared for.

Edit: OK, well nothing much was confirmed relevant to Smash. But it has got me thinking; a lot of major first party games had things foreshadowed in Smash (like Luigi's new grab attack from Luigi's Mansion 3), and Mario Maker had both the Builder Mario palette for Mario and the Mii Fighter costume added; now it's had a sequel announced. The lack of more XCX content makes me think they don't have more planned for it in future; otherwise they would plan to put something in Smash as a sneak peek. Maybe it's too far off to think about, but it has me a bit bummed.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. That kind of reading is just too needlessly pessimistic. And keep in mind, there was plenty of hints and foreshadowing in the 2 DLC.

We got our Xenoblade X news in the direct after all.

That is unmistakably Irina Akulov playing Super Mario Maker 2 in her free time when she should be doing BLADE work making a cameo in the Super Mario Maker 2 direct as Irina is a Russian or at least her name is Russian and that is the Russian flag next to her name.

The Mii’s hairdo looks similar enough too

Also, her last name is Russian. Akulov

I'm honestly surprised Monokuma did as well as he did. I guess it's more than just me and the Monokuma Support Thread who want him. :)
