Maybe, but the "It's Sakurai" excuse could just as easily be applied to the Ken/Incineroar/Plant triple reveal as well. Granted, he's unpredictable, but there's still more logic in favor of a double reveal than a single. If you refuse to accept that, then it's up to you.
I¨m not disregarding the chance of them revealing more than one character. I¨m just questioning you're "Yeah I think not" part, as if it is obvious that we are getting more than one, when it really isn¨t, especially with the Terry presentation in mind.

I see what you're saying, but again, the fact that we got stiffed so hard with the last presentation is even MORE reason to get a double reveal this time around. There's still a chance we could get stiffed again, but I would be far more surprised to have only one reveal rather than two.

Dang, that was fast. Props to you, Sir.

Just a thought, but did any of the Mii costumes (besides maybe Sans) deconfirm any highly requested fighter so far? That seems a bit suspicious to me, I guess.
I don't think so. The Mii costumes I can think of that would deconfirm a highly-requested character (Geno, Lloyd, Heihachi, possibly Monster Hunter) are all still absent.

No It's call, understanding and having the soical awareness that your character fandom can be promblematic and emotionally charged

(Espically since 2 of y'all went of a tyrant about Sora)

So trying to calm them down and telling them to hype responsibly / not attack other SE fans, isn't """"concern trolling""""""
Every character fandom can be problematic and emotionally charged, but I don't see people coming into Sora, Dante, or Reimu threads lecturing people on how to play nice if their favorites don't get in. That's my point. If you have a problem with 2 people then address those 2 people. If everyone else is fine why lecture the entire thread as if it's something that more than those 2 people are doing? Like I said before it becomes """""""""""""""concern trolling""""""""""""""""""""" when the context is said person only ever posts about off-topic things or chiding the thread over hypotheticals.

Hey going back to the Sakurai photo shopped in on titles

We have someone who got the exact moment give or take a few moments



Base one where the,

Blue on shoulder

Brown on arm

Yellow and red in hair

Looks like it’s a match to me.

It’s definatly screen capped from the offical direct on that announcement

Oh one more thing the brown in sakurais arm I. The announcement photo

The answer is right in front of you



It’s literaly the that brown background in the photo so that background is the characters background

Edit: whoops already pointed out the elbow area involves the brown background on the announcement page

Might actually have something.

Firstly, I went back to the Terry and Banjo presentations and sure enough you can clearly see the colors of the posters behind him.
Is this the dumbest most crackpot theory ever? Maybe, but damn I'm a believer.
I live for stuff like this

God bless you

The one thing I will be immensely upset over is if Sakurai decided to change his background and have the screen absent in his direct.

If the brown really is from the character background then I really could see FP5 being either Dragonborn or Doomslayer. Other projected picks like Dante, Arle, Sora, Ryu Hyabusa, Crash and Tracer don't really fit with the brown to me. Nightmare either really. A brown color scheme seems to me like it'd come from a more grounded/serious character. So again likely not Arle, Crash, or Sora.

Has my favourite Smashboard member and generally good dude AdamBell731 posted anything yet? Sure he'll be happy about the news.

Always enjoy his posts too.

Anyway glad this ride is almost over for now.


Also I see Sakurai is holding up a three and not dabbing Huh? Interesting.
Me when I see I'm someone's favorite user and that person also actually likes my posts

But anyways, aw why thank you good sir, glad someone enjoys my posts! Means a lot, especially from my scaly friend!

Most of my posting here today has kinda just been... tempering expectations and trying to get everyone not to freak out and such (at least not to a "wanting the moon" degree). I mean we're all excited about the announcement because it has been 4 long months since Terry's reveal, but I just don't want people to be let down and/or start spreading negativity. I am not usually one to say "hype responsibly," but due to the wait I think people are maybe expecting more than is actually gonna happen. A bit more strict than I usually go, but people are just excited I suppose. Hopefully no one got perturbed by me doing that though, I just don't want massive whiplash or souls ("Spirits?") to be crushed on Thursday.

I'm sure it'll be good though, as I said, I'm content with the roster!

Watch it be another obscure but popular Japanese character.

Bonus: No other reveal in the next 30 minutes because Sakurai plays through classic.

Now we’re never gonna get a smoking gun on who it is with the screen cap thing and it is infact a screen cap from the presentation

But I took a look at the photo again

I got another suspicious color

There’s a grey pixels around the shoulders and too light to be from his shirt

And I recal the classic doomguys boots being grey

That’s thats overkill but it’s just worth noting

And the pose it could be just 3 something in the video after talking about the 5th character

Maybe 3 modes 3 new things

But the one I could bet on is 3 more characters

Calling it now; it's not Doomguy, it's Adol from Ys. The colors are too perfect.

Iconic. Check.
Popular. Check.
Anime Swordsman. Check.
Would upset everyone but me. Check.

The grey also very much fits for Dragonborn, so that’s not exactly a smoking gun, unless you really, really wanted Vault Boy.
