god, people on gamefaqs are honestly hilarious sometimes. they but the words trashbag and garbage in front of geno's name... true intellectuals
Indeed. Truly, we cannot compete with such deep and profound insights like this gem.

lol yup even a baby could break WreckaGeno apart with their bare hands. I mean, can you imagine turning that piece of rotten plywood into an outhouse? You'd sit your *** down, ready to take one huge s*** then you fall/break through the goddamn termite-infested toilet and right into the steaming pile of s*** below. SewaGeno isn't even good for taking a s*** in, lmao.
(TBH, this unironically made me laugh)

Sakurai Probably meant that statement about the year long development at the time, but one is always trying to advance the process and make things more efficient. I wouldn't be surprised if he managed with that massive team now to concurrently develop all of the characters and crank them out one every 5-6 months or so, especially if the hope to be done by the end of 2020. As far as Nintendo's deciding the DLC... That's honestly a mixed bag. Probably more likely to leak now, but even harder to predict. I think Sakurai's statement about the DLC completion probably referred to the finalization of all 5 characters. That doesn't mean that the others weren't taken care of and possibly even conceptualized before that tweet.

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.
Yeah I really think there was a mass misunderstanding of Sakurai's tweet about the characters being "now completed". People thought that meant that the DLC was just decided the other day. When you go back and watch the direct it's pretty clear that the characters were decided on several years ago considering Rex was explicitly said as not making the cut because of when his game was announced not even released. It was announced publicly in January 2017. So DLC had to have been chosen at minimum over a year ago and likely was much earlier than that.

The website says all of the dlc (season 1 pass at least) will be out by feb 2020. That's the beginning of 2020. Assuming Piranah is feburary with his amiibo, thats 12 months for the remaining 5 fighters.

An awesome remix of Weapons Factory.
Fantastic score...I love the way they integrated the Culex Battle Theme at the end.

Speaking of, I remember watching the reveal for Simon and Richter, and seeing Dracula as a boss...And thinking of how amazing it would be for them to bring in characters like Smithy and Culex as bosses like that. I guess my expectations were a bit unrealistic.

Don't get me wrong, I'll still be thrilled if Geno appears as DLC...But there was so much he missed out on by not being in the base game. Like a Mallow AT, SMRPG items, a role in World of Light, unique bosses, a CGI trailer, etc.

But hey, at least with DLC, he'd be guaranteed a unique stage and MULTIPLE music tracks.

DLC will be released by February 2020, not in that month. It will most likely be released in a staggered manner, with a character every few months. Piranha Plant will be released in January 31st, 2019.

Thanks for the clarification. And yeah, that's what I predicted. 5 fighters in 12 months is one every 2.4 months or so. That's very frequent!

"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.
Wow this thread is pure cringe. Even 4chan's Geno threads on /v/ were more tamed than this.

We really need to see the comment that Verg deleted or at least make him to repeat once again what he had said. Him deleting it so quickly means that he definitely spilled some beans.

Apparently the Geno Mii Costume has been shown in Ultimate
It’s hard to tell what that means for Geno, as every other character with a Mii Costume is in the game in some form (counting rathalos for monster hunter) and having the Mii Costume missing could be taken as a confirmation that Geno is dlc. At the very least, it confirms that Sakurai has the ability to use Geno in smash.

It's pretty sad, as in the old days, the actual FAQS and walkthroughs were good. They're redundant in this age of the internet, but they were at least usually done decently.
Now it's a PG-13 rated 4chan, but way less informative.
i mean, for a lot of less popular games their walkthroughs are some of the only ones

Someone is claiming that's actually Wii U's UI

I never had Wii U, but that's the first question I asked

Does anyone know? I can't seem to find a picture of Ultimate's UI


Edit:



So, yeah. I think the pic is fake

The Mii Costume being in scares the piss out of me now...

Sure I know it technically doesn’t deconfirm him, and both chrom and k rool got in...

But why suddenly reveal it now? And is the krool and chrom costumes even still in?

this mixed with Nintendo being the ones who came up with a list of characters and told sakurai to pick from em makes me feel a bit worried.

If he misses out again idk what to think...really don’t want to wait another 5+ years before we get another shot...especially because this is his best chance yet, if he doesn’t make it this time his chance of ever appearing drops drastically.

I’ll continue to support geno getting in until I’m a rotting corpse in the ground, but I’d much rather see it happen sooner than later.
I was wrong. I was tricked with Smash Wii U screenshot

I knew it looked off, but I never owned Smash Wii U

I think we need to all take a break now seriously.... we’re all getting a bit too nervous that we fall for anything, good or bad at this point....
Trolls are being bigger ******** to us than usual lately.

I don't know if I would prefer to have the costume back or not. If it's not back, his chances as DLC skyrocket, but at the same time we could end up without character and without outfit.

Wouldn't make much sense to have a spirit/icon without the costume though.

on the topic of geno DLC netting square some cash, I think the very nature of smash bros also helps it by a lot.
the fact that there are SO MANY CHARACTERS is one of smash's greatest charms . this might be my own bias speaking, but theres no reason for me to skip out on any characters, even if its a character I hate with the most heated of passions. hell, wii fit trainer, mii fighters, villager, duck hunt, dark pit, and doctor Mario left me feeling bummed, but I still love smash bros regardless. they all rubbed off on me I guess~ and Ironically they were the characters I wanted to "dissect" and learn from the most.
so even if we have a bunch of haters, I think they'll still want to look at Geno anyway! love him or hate him, but always BUY him!
