We're in for yet another treat with the soundtrack

Hey, sign me up as a supporter! I just got an Xbox system for the first time at Christmas and finally tried Halo. I absolutely loved it! So far I've only played Halo 3 in the Master Chief collection, but I'm planning on getting a Series X and really looking forward to Infinite! I obviously don't have a huge history with Master Chief, but I'd be stoked to see him get in, and he would also be by far the craziest addition to Smash Bros. ever!

Awesome dude! Have you played any of the other titles, or just Halo 3? I have recently been playing through all of them(finished Halo Wars, Halo: Reach, Halo: CE, and am working on Halo 2/Halo 3: ODST right now). Such a good collection of games, man!

So far just Halo 3 because I was told that's the best one. I've mainly just been doing multiplayer, but I just recently did the campaign with my cousin. I'm probably going to start playing through all the ones on Gamepass soon.

I do find it hilarious that if Chief were to be another DLC character he'd very likely be the 4th DLC addition to have a 'tether' recovery.
I think his recovery would be the Grav Lift unless Microsoft/343 specifically asks for the Grappling Hook.

Though that would also be another case of a mascot character having an Up-B that’s solely a recovery like Sonic, Mega Man, Pac-Man & Banjo lol

Nice dude. They are some great games. Since you have MCC, you have all the Chief games except for Halo 5. Give them a shot. You will enjoy it a lot.

This is... interesting. Not too sure how I feel about it.

If they truly want this game to be a “platform” then it’s needs to be the Smash Ultimate of Halo.

“Everything is here!”. Firefight, Invasion, Every map, every weapon (& every weapon design), every vehicle, every game type, every Forge/custom games option & every armor piece from Halo 3/Reach/4.

The Halo 5 armors can **** off though lmao

All of that can be added over time, but it needs to happen. Bank on 20 years of Halo nostalgia & passion like Ultimate did for Smash.

I feel Installation 04 would be the best choice for his stage, specifically based on the “Halo” level from Halo: CE.

Halo has a TON of stage potential from both the campaigns & multiplayer. But if there can only be one then it HAS to be on a Halo ring.

Installation 04 with Guilty Spark transporting us from place to place would be cool. Control Room, Forward Unto Dawn, beacb battle area, ice area with Wraiths and Scorpions. I'm down!

Glad to finally see something like this put in full perspective as an image. Would still prefer Doomguy, but would also be fine with Chief happening first.

I hate that it feels that we cannot have both Chief and Doomslayer in the same pass. Chief is my most wanted, but I am also rooting for Doomguy as well.

Also, yeah, I really like that graphic. Helps put it into perspective, like you said.

I know right? We can have multiple JRPG characters per pass but two FPS characters are a huge no-no.

Let's just hope more fanrules like "Unpopular in Japan" get broken. I just don't see why they have to keep pandering to portion of fanbase that is way less than half of the entire sales.

I’ve seen this before but with Gordon Freeman/Half-Life in place of Heavy (Joker instead of Shulk too) & I agree with that more.

Additionally, I’d say COD & Pokemon would be in similar roles. Though I don’t think a COD character would really fit in Smash.

Maybe Team Fortress 2 would be more like Tales. I’d say Overwatch would be the closest thing to Xenoblade since they’re the new kid on the block.

Well, the game *IS* made by Japanese people. So it makes sense why there’s some sort of bias.

But we’re beginning to run out of big Japanese series (especially since they spirited poor Resident Evil), so hopefully they’ll start adding in some western titans like Master Chief, Crash, Steve & Doom Slayer.

If they can add series that are big in Japan but not the US, I don’t see anything wrong with doing the reverse occasionally.

Seems fair, maybe the Series X will have slightly more games at launch by then.

I would expect at least only one or two more for this time, since they're understandably taking baby steps about it. They will need to be Western IPs that resonate real easily with Japan (if not the whole world), so the marines may need to be set aside for Smash 6.

The delay to 2021 is actually a very smart marketing move too. It releases on the 20th anniversary of both Halo and the Xbox brand as a whole

We’ll see. I 100% agree that we’ll only see 1 or 2 western IPs get into FP2. But I think they could always balance Master Chief out with a more Japanese centric character like Lloyd/Yuri or Rex. They sort of did that with Hero being announced alongside Banjo for the west. The Hero/Banjo duel reveal was probably one of the best marketing decisions this game’s had, I could definitely see them trying to repeat it.

& I’m pretty happy that Halo: Infinite is delayed. Get the graphics as good as potential after all the Craig memes & what not.

The Infinite delay also helps the steam version of MCC have a bit more room to breath. The trajectory for it was gonna be having Halo 4 (and any updates that come with it) out and then Infinite would release probably under a month later and kneecap it.

This thread will see a lot of usage before the end of 2021. I’ll say that much
