That would be amazing. I really hope they’d do that.Also, I would love to see the Halo multiplayer announcer (Jeff Seitzer) react to events on the Halo stage, should Chief get in..
Master Chief & DoomGuy are officially Best Bros.Bethesda has been bought by Microsoft, it actually happened.
It wouldn’t mean anything for Fighter Pass 2. Those deals are already done & have been done for around a year. If Chief is in instead of DoomGuy then it won’t be because of this deal.Yeah, I just saw. Not sure what will happen now. Does that now lessen Doom Guy's chances due to Microsoft preferring Master Chief?
I feel they’ve been able to have a solid roster for a while, but now it’d be even bigger.With all the different franchises Xbox now has; maybe they can make their own cross over game......
Time will only tell. In regards to Smash news in general, we likely won't hear of anything new until sometime between the 5th and 30th of October, since that should theoretically be the period that's clean of holidays, noteworthy game events and releases.Phil’s a class act. I’ve had mixed opinions about the last couple years of Xbox & the launch of the Series X, but he’s a good guy. Hopefully all of these studios that have been purchased under his run will really turn Xbox around.
Also, it’s interesting that he mentioned Persona. Maybe it’s finally coming to Xbox?
It seems that Microsoft is trying to become a more serious presence in Japan. Maybe they’ll use Smash as a way to promote their mascot & thus Xbox in general?
Seems pretty fair. Not to mention VGAs, but honestly the chances of that are infinitesimal, seeing how dull last year's was.Honestly, I’m not expecting Chief as the next character if he does happen. He’s definitely E3 material or maybe the second to last reveal like Cloud was*.
Corrin & Bayo were revealed at the same time, so that’s why I’m counting Cloud as second to last.
It’s hard to say. Smash has a strong grip over this sub-genre of fighting game. No one’s come close to beating Smash, not even Sony. So it might be best to join Smash & use it as a way to prop up your brands.ODST was just released on PC recently. Now, only Halo 4 remains. I wonder what that spells for Switch rumor.
I forgot to mention this... but is it better for Microsoft to make their own Smash game instead of putting their characters into Smash?
I wonder whether Phil Spencer changed his mind.
They can make shooter arena or third person action arena. They don't have to copy Smash directly. I'm just saying there are more paths to choose. Hell, they can just release their own Smash while still putting their characters in Smash. Ryu has been in numerous crossover, but that didn't stop him from joining Smash.It’s hard to say.

With the way Spencer talks about Nintendo, I think he’d be happy to see more Xbox centric characters stand alongside Mario, Link & Pikachu.
I honestly think that there’s a good chance that Master Chief could bring Xbox content besides Halo with him, if he were to get in that is.
Terry was also included in Fighting EX Layer around that time so I doubt it's 1 per gameThat's also option. I wonder why they chose Arbiter instead of Chief for KI... I heard that Arbiter fit aesthetically better than Chief for KI. On the other hand, it kinda reminds me of SNK. How they distributed their characters to different games. Mai for DOA6, Geese for Tekken 7 and finally Terry for Smash Ultimate... Could MS have the same plan?
I'd rather Killer Instinct stay as Killer Instinct. Having a few guest characters in fine; but I wouldn't want a crossover game focused on Killer Instinct's style of fighting.You already got Killer Instinct which was proven ground for having other Microsoft reps in a fighter like RAAM, Arbiter, Rash... Just have maybe another KI reboot game continuing that formula. A Microsoft all-stars take on Smash would be kinda redundant when you already got the tried and true KI. Plus a lot of the KI characters would have to be included in MS all-stars anyway.
Smash is Smash and will be unrivaled regardless with Nintendo's catalogs, which not even Sony comes close to as pointed out.
Yeah, IMO Chief's getting Mii Costumed on Saturday. I'm just hoping he comes with a music track or something; they gotta know how big Halo is - or at least was - right?Honestly if they do the Mii costume I hope they let it have colour differences just to reference the MP
Plus you could re-enact RvB.
