PLAYING SUPER MARIO RPG AT 3 AM, GENO VISITS OUR HOUSE!? CLICK HERE TO FIND OUT MORE"TWEETING ABOUT GENO WHILE FACE TIMING BOWYER AT 3AM ON CHRISTMAS EVE! GONE WRONG! REAL! NOT CLICKBAIT!"
I'm not going anywhere so don't worry 'bout itThis is a fun thread. I like this thread. I like this fanbase. Let's do this forever!
Omfg"Superstar with lots of wood makes big 3 star release on hammering burly bearded man."
The point of releasing the costume before the character has also been brought up by OffBi on Discord and it does make some sense, why would you ever buy the costume when there’s a shiny new Geno right next to it on the shelf?I agree. That one 5chan post made sense of a lot of things especially "third parties don't want their characters to be just Smash characters." We've been asking ourselves since last spring when the SMRPG remake/remaster/rumor was still a Star Road secret if Square would hold off on Geno until the announcement of that and that post reminded me of those conversations. The answer is "Mmmmm, yeah..." If Hero was theoretically withheld from the base game to be released closer to the release of DQ XI S, I can definitely entertain Geno being withheld but the Mii costume being released just for the sake of completion/profit. Also, a thought that kind of made me grimace at work today: releasing the Geno Mii with an actual Geno would be kind of a dumb idea. If you wanted to get maximum profit from the Mii costume, release it first because most of fanbase would feel compelled to buy it because they want a consolation prize. Release them together and a vast majority of people are just going to skip out on it.
( Serenade01 screaming from the distance: "I'VE BEEN ARGUING THIS FOR MONTHS, YOU TWO TON ****!")
Of course, the rub is whether the SMRPG remake/remaster/sequel is real or not. If it yes, yeah... I could totally see Square and Nintendo pulling an Isabelle/Hero to promote it.
I'm not seeing it on his Twitter; did he post it on Resetera?Curious stuff Imran just dropped about Ultimate, this in reply to a 4chan leak that says the next characters are Tails, Raiden and Crash (the leak its fake):
- Sephiroth is cheaper than he usually is as a recommendation from SE, but not because of Hero
- Byleth has a decent bit of the moveset of a character that didn't make it due to negotiations falling through, but Byleth was supposed to be in the main roster and were moved to DLC well before the game came out, they weren't a late replacement. 3 Houses was meant to release before Ultimate (this last thing is correct as we know that originally FE 3H was going to be released at 2018).
- Min Min was indeed partly because it's easier to get Nintendo characters
btw, its amazing how much Imran knows about ultimate development, its as almost he works inside Bandai-Namco.
do you have a link to it

Interesting that, if it is Monster Hunter, plans fell through with Capcom out of all companies, that'll make 3 Capcom reps highly discussed but probably dropped.
When did they say they probably dropped Dante, did I miss something?Interesting that, if it is Monster Hunter, plans fell through with Capcom out of all companies, that'll make 3 Capcom reps highly discussed but probably dropped.
So here’s the question
OH DAMN I actually thought we were getting a Monster Hunter Rep
i don’t think it’s monster Hunter. Reading the replies and his replies to comments asking if he knows who the character is he says he knows but doesn’t feel comfortable saying who and then says capcom doesn’t like having monster Hunter characters playable in other games.
I'm assuming cost. Might have been part of a "sweetheart" deal of some kind that we haven't seen yet either in or outside of Smash.Just a quick question about the Imran topic. In the first bullet point, what does Imran mean by saying Sephiroth "is cheaper than he usually is"? Like, moveset wise or money wise? I'd find it really strange if it's the latter because we all know that Square Enix does the Square Enix.
Money wise, this corroborates what Max said a few days before that normally, Cloud and Sephiroth would be very very expensive but thanks to Sakurai’s reputation and Nintendo negotiations, they could get both of them (+ other FFVII content) for an affordable price.Just a quick question about the Imran topic.

I was specifically talking about mainline SF games. Which I said. My point was about Skullo and Geno showing up in the series they were created for which they haven’t and their most recent appearances crossing over to the companies they share rights with were as costumes. I don’t see the point of being pedantic about it lol.Well, you KINDA forgot about Fighting EX Layer, which is all about specifically the unique characters owned by that company from the SFEX series, in which Skullomania was a huge reveal at EVO.
So, if Geno was JUST like Skullomania, it would be more like Geno getting in an RPG made by Square that focuses on just the OG SMRPG characters but in a totally different setting and with some brand new mechanics mixed with very familiar ones, and THEN Geno's costume coming to Smash...
Although a better comparison would be a Geno outfit in Mario Odyssey or a cameo in Origami King, but I digress.
This isn't a perfect 1:1 scenario.
I find it really unlikely there won't be capcom tbh. Either Dante or Phoenix
He doesn’t think there will be a Capcom Rep, he knows there will be a Capcom Rep!..... or not.... freaking vague
Hmm... if there won't be a Capcom rep among the last three (which imo, would have been Dante) then... could the "substitute" be Ryu Hayabusa (Koei Tecmo)? Dunno, there's not enough evidence imo.
Not like he could outright say anyways without Nintendo going full blown botworm on him.That could imply that he KNOWS there is a Capcom rep. It’s a common turn of phrase, “think? No, I KNOW”
Unpopular opinion incoming, but he's right.Honestly I always hated this account’s corny memes and idiotic takes but some of the stuff on this thread is just flat out bullcrap, specially the part where this idiot says Geno is nowhere near as big as Ridley, Banjo and their precious K. Rool when it comes to extremely requested characters.
Although I sympathize with many Geno fans, it's time to face the facts: the Geno fanbase didn't campaign for their character when it mattered. K. Rool got in because we didn't wait for Sakurai to say that he liked our character before turning out for him in the Smash Ballot.— Kremling Kampaigner (@KRoolKountry) December 18, 2020
So, if we take Imran at his word and assume Capcom isn't getting a new rep, the current lineup would point towards Koei Tecmo, Bandai Namco, and Activision then?Not like he could outright say anyways without Nintendo going full blown botworm on him.
I do think he is hard implying Monster Hunter fell through because the amount of Monster Hunter content in the base game makes so much more sense with this context:
-Managed to negotiate everything (Assist Trophy/music/map/boss/stage) except a character.
-Scrapped Monster Hunter gets made into another weapon tactician that coincidentally has access to a sword, long bow, and axe: Byleth.
-Byleth would have been in the base game if Three Houses wasn't delayed.
