I wouldn't mind if they kept all the songs intact, but it'd be really cool if we got a couple of remixes (Blooming Villian and Will Power mixes pls). I'd add Keeper of Lust to the list because even though we don't hear it a lot, it's still a hella rad song.

With 2.0.0 in about a week or so, do you think we'll get any gameplay footage of Joker in the near future? We still haven't gotten our first Direct of the year, so maybe we'll get one next month. I hope we see something soon ;-;
I'm almost certain we'll have a Direct soon with a Smash segment that gives out Piranha Plants download date, possibly a priced reveal for those who didn't get Piranha Plant for free, maybe we'll get to see some new Amiibo, and then hopefully we'll get some good, and if we're lucky, in depth gameplay for Joker.

Perhaps! Sakurai said that it takes 6 months to develop a character and we know Joker started in early December, so maybe it's not likely, but it is also possible that the six-month timeline was for making a new character alongside the main game and not DLC. I feel like they'd at least show a model or the stage next direct though, if not gameplay.

We don't actually know when development on Joker started; we know Sakurai didn't start when Nintendo approached him about a VGA reveal, but it's possible he started soon after. The game went gold in early November, so perhaps he started around that timeframe.

It's possible if there is a Direct in February with a gameplay trailer, maybe a late April release? That's the earliest I can guess.

TIL Mewtwo is DLC in Smash Ultimate.

Right, that is a good point! I feel like they probably started negotiations significantly before the development began, so the game going gold likely wasn't related, but it's true that we just know Joker started too late to have a gameplay trailer at the VGA, which could mean anything.

I feel like they'll have Joker released prior to E3 at least, as they probably will want to showcase new character(s) there - especially if rumours of western third-party characters are true.[/QUOTE]

When it comes to the fear of Persona 5 doing an FF7 and having limited music tracks: Does anyone know if there is any red tape involved with the Persona 5 tracks? I hear somewhere that the Persona songs are in-house to there's hopefully no licensing issues that have to be dealt with as opposed to FF and DQ who need to pay royalties to its composers.
I'd imagine that each season pass fighter would have relatively around the same number of music tracks at least. Not exactly the same, but somewhere in the same ballpark.

I think we'll get more than what we got for FF7 (that was an issue with having to pay Uematsu; not an issue with Square itself). But, if we were limited to only 2 tracks from persona 5, which two would you guys go with?
My choices would be
A) Rivers in the Desert
B) Life Will Change
Mementos and the Junes theme sung by Nanako

Well if it had to be P5 only, I'd go with:

1) Will Power
2) Life Will Change

As much as I love Rivers in the Desert, if we were limited to 2 songs from P5, it would have to be Last Surprise and Life Will Change.

I mean, if you ask me, the answers are obvious.

1. Last Surprise
2. Life Will Change

Last surprise us 100% necessary, so you're asking me to choose between life will change and Rivers in the desert. I can't do that. So I choose last surprise and a remix of life will change that transitions into Rivers in the desert.

Life will Change and Rivers in the Desert for me, but it'd be crime to not have the other themes in ;-;

Wouldn't have been a hard question to answer if I gave more than just 2 choices lol. Like I said before, though. I don't think they've got the same restrictions on them as Final Fantasy's music. Square didn't own the music; they had to pay royalties to Uematsu, so they were only able to get 2 tracks. Sakurai is on record saying he loves everything about this game; music included; and it's a pretty well-received game overall. I have a lot of faith in the fact that we'll see a good selection of music accompanying him in Smash. I just hope they give enough time to grant us a Persona 5 stage that isn't Mementos. I'd prefer a stage going through the different palaces, but I'll settle for the Velvet Room.

As for the two tracks if we had another unfortunate FF7 situation, it would be Last Surprise and Life Will Change.
Not having Last Surprise is a crime; that song is too popular to be excluded from Smash Bros. And Life Will Change for the same reasons. Both are very iconic tracks to both the game and Persona as a whole.

Also apparently Piranha Plant is automatically added to the party in WOL, no fight needed. Assuming the Fighter's Pass DLC follow suit: This turns WOL from "Kirby the sole survivor" to "Kirby and his team of ragtag misfits featuring PP, Joker and whoever else".

I love it XD.
I hear he only gets auto-added in a New Game+. Maybe that means you have to beat the game if you haven't already to get him...

I started a new file yesterday to see if Piranha Plant would be in the party or if it was just Kirby, and it was the latter.
I'm not sure if they added a section in WoL where you can fight it and recruit it or if they are playable after you beat the game.
In any case, I'll start NG+ when Joker gets released.
