If the list has recently been "finalized," it seems hard to believe even one being ready to show. However ... if a basic model is created without showing moves ... maybe. Or even the CP of it?

Another thought could be numerous "beta" characters were created and 5 have been chosen to proceed with further development. Still, I can't imagine how polished they could be IF that was the case.

They showed off Cranky in Tropical Freeze at TGA. Anything goes, but it feels like the only reason we're thinking about it is because the show is the day before Ultimate's release.

It's certainly possible that a team of professional developers could create a little tech demo of a character to be shown off, the question is whether or not it's worth it.

Imo it's obvious there would be a square enix rep again. Think of it this way, King k rool got in and he was popular, Chrom got in and he was popular more so in Japan, inkling got in probably because of timing and they were popularly wanted characters. Tails is highly requested by the sonic community and other fans but not that highly though in general so i said spirit or returning mii costume, that tekken character (forgot his name) wasn't really highly requested if you ask me probably because sakurai wanted as DLC personally, Black knight has been deconfirmed soo............ who is left who was a popular character? Geno, so far all majorly popular mii costumes were made characters. Plus what sakurai said "it didn't end up materializing" might of meant he wasn't able to finish Geno as a character or couldn't put in That game but next smash makes mores sense since it's mostly a fanservice game regardless if Nintendo is picking dlc characters. They are aware of his popularity too and he makes the most sense, because he has deep ties to Nintendo, would make great profits for Nintendo and square enix, a mario character to a degree, Purely owned by square, they already got the super mario rpg composer making music for smash lol, and would FINALLY complete the holy trinty of impossible characters and unite him back with mario and the crew.

"Vergeben posted on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, in the topic "Us Geno fans are the most oppressed group of people on the Internet"39 minutes ago "

I saw it on Gamefaqs but he already removed his message, you guys can see it on his gamefaqs account.
Well, that certainly puts a new perspective on things. I always thought Verge was kinda separated from the Nintendo fandom and that he was just a leaker who had the right contacts.

Edit: Wait, I misread, I thought Verge was the Geno fan posting this thread. My bad. What was it that he said on this thread?

If I had to guess, I would say it was something in favor of Geno fans getting hate, and maybe that's why he deleted it. At this point it wouldn't surprise me if Verg actually hates Geno's fanbase like everyone else.

Like everything, it is a few/certain number of people that "ruin it" for the rest.

For example, I have a friend who does like Waluigi. Unfortunately, there was the base, within the Waluigi base, that made it toxic with all that hate when he was revealed as an AT. He still hopes for Waluigi to be upgraded or eventually included, but he is not anything like those who left things in bad taste.

So for Geno fans, obviously there are those who added toxicity to the whole matter. That does not mean the entire base (like Waluigi fans) are toxic or add to the negative ... but unfortunately the negative tends to be remembered more than the positive.

It was implied one of the names he's heard for the Enix rep. Since he seems to understand fan demands (he supported Isaac despite all the hate), I'd either guess he was defending Geno fans like he did Isaac fans, or just saying how Geno has a good shot because he's one of the names.

Not sure if this is ****posting but according to someone in the thread:

“He confirmed Geno but deleted it too quickly for me to screencap it.”

That would certainly make sense of why he deleted it so quickly. If gave a concrete answer to the Square character right now, it would be easier for Square to send there own variety of ninja to find the one responsible for giving the info. My question is why did he say anything in the first place?

That whole thread basically needs a nice tall glass of shut the **** up... I'm once again reminded that the GameFaqs forums are like farting into a megaphone: it's technically a way to be heard that's accessible to everyone but it's loud, obnoxious, and there's much better ways while retaining your dignity.

Yeah. If you're gonna fart into something loud, do it over a PA system at a middle school during morning announcements. Amateurs, I tell you what...

Anyways, yay Geno!

At least with 4chan there's occasionally posts that are insightful and funny but with GameFAQs it is like 95% **** posting. I don't see how anyone can stand to be a regular there, especially someone straight laced like Vergeben.
I unfortunately spent most of the Brawl speculation days there. For the record, I don't remember Geno being NEARLY as hated then as he is now, though my memory is most likely faulty.
They don't really even have a good reason for hating him; the most I saw was "People were arrogant about wanting him." So petty.

I think people forgot Smash isn't about only relevant characters, or at least current characters. I don't think many people in Melee days were thinking before its launch: "Man, I wish the Ice Climbers were playable!"

Or brawl: "I really want Pitt!"

Or 4: "Give me Duck Hunt!"

So all in all, no character should be out right rejected by fans because of "x" reason or "y" reason or since they personally do not like the character ...

Pit was very much supported for Brawl.

In 2014 Sakurai said that it takes around a year to make a character in Smash: https://mynintendonews.com/2014/10/...ating-smash-bros-character-takes-over-a-year/

If they just finalized the list, and that statement is still accurate, then we can expect DLC to be released in late 2019... but then that doesn't make sense because DLC is said to be released throughout 2019. I don't get how they can create the characters within such a small timeframe, I mean they're starting actual development on them after the game is released. Either they suddenly figured out how to create completely new fighters, stages, and music at lightspeed or someone's lying. Nah, I don't think they'd lie. Right?

Mewtwo was released about 5-6 months after being revealed for Smash 4, with Lucas not far behind. I'd say it wouldn't take a whole year...

I was not referring to supporting or enjoying a character. My comment was about obscure characters people were not expecting or thinking would be on the game. This is not including leaks or anything, I meant the concept of either old or obscure characters who are on smash and then I used such examples characters I bet people wouldn’t have thought of being on smash before it’s development, leaks, rumors etc.

It’s pretty evident that characters were conceived a long time ago, possibly at the same time as regular fighters. Development on the DLC probably started around the time the base game went gold, if not before: look at Piranha Plant if you want evidence, it looks nearly finished.
