Cuphead's basically in Smash now, like what happened with Sans. Of course it's not exactly the same as having him without being a full costume, but the costume looks so good it might as well be Cuphead. As someone who regularly plays the Miis I'm pretty hyped, and it makes me wonder what other Mii costumes will get the Sans & Cuphead treatment (proportionally accurate character costumes with free music).

Still waiting for shovel Knights costume, a Hollow knight and hornet swordfighters would be sick and i wouldn't say no to Quote. (let them all come with songs though)

Yeah there's some pretty good choices for Indie Mii costumes. I've wanted Shovel Knight since Smash 4 so maybe in the future a Mii Swordfighter could be revealed.

That Cuphead costume was such an awesome surprise. I love that they've started doing that, it was amazing with Sans and just as cool with Cuphead! The costume looks basically exact!
Next I want a Pokéball Guy from pokémon sword & shield, and for the Heihachi one to return

Super excited Cuphead costume was announced. I popped off because even though I dont play Mii's and kinda despise them. The Cuphead costume will be the only DLC costume I purchase. I need Floral Fury (though Carnival Kerfuffle would've been better). I will never play online with a Mii but in fun local battles sure what the hell. Lol

Looks like the boys don't mind it.

Yeah, Cave Story is stuck with one game, which is a death knell for third party inclusions as far as I can see.

Congratulations to all you Cuphead fans. It might not have been the Gold trophy you wanted, but it's still a nice silver.

I'm also looking forward to seeing what other characters get the full Mii mascot treatment.

I'll call the Mii Costumes like the Sans and Cuphead, enhanced.

That being said, I wish the results had been flipped. Cuphead reveal and Byleth costume with music track. I did get the book intro right for his reveal.

I like Cuphead, but I like the music even more and it is a shame that it was just limited to Floral Fury. Would Cuphead's stage have been the Cagney Carnation stage then?

I thank that he was at least made a costume and maybe we will get a Cuphead Spirit Event. Maybe he'll be playable in the next Smash. We did have a few SSB4 costumes that had newcomers in Ultimate.

As for further enhanced Mii costumes, I think Shovel Knight is a leading contender. I never played any of the SK games, but I can see a SK costume happening for Swordfighter.

Ideal special moves for the costume? I'm by no means an expert of the game, have only gotten to the carnival area and just watched a YouTube video of all his moves:
  • Neutral: He does have moves similar to Charge Blast and Grenade Launch (when he's in the plane), but Laser Blaze best replicates his default appearance.
  • Side: His in-game "Charge" move is similar to Stealth Burst, but Gunner Missile could also act as his plane form.
  • Up: Ideally this would act as his air dash, so I'll give it to Arm Rocket.
  • Down: Absorbing Vortex could act as his parry though he does have some moves in-game "close" to Bomb Drop... 50/50 but leaning toward Absorbing Vortex.
At the end of the day I'm going Laser Blaze/Stealth Burst/Arm Rocket/Absorbing Vortex because I've spent too much time on this lol; this is actually a fun way of constructing a moveset for a character who doesn't get in... I'll probably cry when I have to do Geno's lol.

Edit: I ended up scrapping all this and doing Charge Blast/Gunner Missile/Arm Rocket/Bomb Drop because it felt better lol.
