I suppose it’s possible they didn’t bother with any new music incase this does end up happening.

Either way I’m really happy we got a bunch of spirits, an AT, and a Mii costume.

I have to say this…
I feel like they made some characters not playable in purpose.
just to make them mii costume and make people feel more like playing as mii fighters.
it's a **** but smart strategy to get people to play them more lol.
It seems to me that they spent a lot of time and resources into making everyone back which Sakurai said was the reason we were getting so few newcomers. I am glad we got the Mii Costume, it is 10x times better than how we felt about the AT

I just hope that doesn't stop him and others from getting upgraded in the future.
Anyway I just hope there are better options for the face, I have never played as miis so dunno about the customization options :laugh:
the costume looks awesome! Isaac Mii Mains unite!

The costume really does look great. It's clear Sakurai wanted to do what he could for Isaac fans despite not making him playable.

I feel like the only major ballot first party character with no content outside of Spirits is Bandana Dee.
I agree it’s a little weird. But the Kirby series has already gotten a lot. Tons of spirits, 43 tracks of music, a boss, Kirby is essentially the hero again in the story mode, etc.

So, I just watched the Smash Ultimate title opening. I looks really good, but I won’t spoil it for those who don’t want to know yet. However, the reason I’m bringing this up is because I noticed something around the end. In one scene, Pikachu was facing towards the background of the stage where all we see is his back. Why mention this? Because it made me think of the Rathalos tweet and how we talked about that it was created on purpose using special dev tools in game to make it. Seeing that scene proves they are capable of doing such things. Of course, that’s a no brainer, honestly. But it did make me think though.

Anyway, carry on everyone. :p

I hate to chime in, but Kirby is the only major, active series that is stuck in 2003 (or 1996, if you don't count the somewhat minimal Air Ride representation). Adventure Mode stuff is nice, but it's not really the same as having another character or stage... I would trade it for a modern one in a heartbeat, at least.


Anyway, since I'm here: I'm glad to hear that you guys have gotten a Mii outfit as well! I'm still a little giddy over Lip getting one. Looks like dropping trophies was a good choice if it means being able to represent more characters through them.

Woah, Isaac actually got acknowledged as a Mii costume this time around. That's pretty cool, and *possibly* gives a little hope for the future.
It is only a possibly if we shape it that way. We must now drive our campaign harder than we ever have before.

Isaac is so close to being playable guys. He is an AT and a Mii Fighter. That is more than K Rool or Ridley ever had. This is a really good thing and we must not squander it

The moment Ultimate is out I am changing my Main to purely Mii Fighter and Isaac will be it. Even if he plays awful I am doing the sacrifice for our boy Isaac.

Hey, it's pretty cool to get a Mii Costume as well instead of just an AT. Feels like more of an attempt to get the character into the game somehow. And Isaac's looks awesome!

An AT reveal can be really crushing, but a Mii Costume almost feels a little bit vindicating, like your character fought hard and was acknowledged rather than screwed over, heh.

Also, seems like Geno, Waluigi, etc. LOST their Mii Costumes, which is a bit unfortunate.

The full Mii costume looks awesome. When we get the game lets share our Isaac Miis and see who made the best one
But anyway this is good for the future since Isaac's popularity was acknowledged, if we keep the demand up over time I can see good things happening going forward. (aka new Golden Sun game/remake and Isaac in a future Smash title or miraculously bumped up as a DLC fighter)

It is weird that Waluigi lost his costume. The Mario series is huge and almost every major Mario character except Waluigi is now playable. We even got Piranha Plant and Daisy now with Ultimate.

I’m really starting to wonder if Sakurai hates Waluigi fans....lol

Sakurai is a 48 year old game director, easily one of the most esteemed in the industry, with almost three decades of experience. I doubt he is so petty.

But.

I do almost wonder if he removed the Waluigi outfit after the embarrassing way Waluigi fans conducted themselves.

Wait, Waluigi? How? Why? Camelot is a second-party.

Oh well, at least Luigi still has his palette based on him.

Well, that seems likely.

If they didn't bother with additional music in anticipation of DLC, it's for Wave 1. Wave 2 is barely even a thought right now, because Wave 1 is not even halfway done yet

Sure. I’m just saying if they had any thought that in the future they might do more DLC and Isaac is a popular choice then they wouldn’t feel the need to add anymore songs right now and just use the Brawl ones.

Especially (and this is speculation based on the trademark stuff) if we are getting a new GS game in the future then we’ll get new remixes of songs most likely and they’d want to use that if Isaac makes the cut in Wave 2 (if we get more DLC).

I want Saturos Battle theme in Ultimate. Adding Assist Trophy promotions in the 2nd Wave would push interest in DLC choices. You would get many people clamoring for more characters, a rebirthing of tremendous hype.
