I find myself going back to the Ridley thread just to check up their reaction when he was finally dropped. I am really hoping we get to have that similar reaction. I hadn't been on SmashBoards for awhile, but Ridley being in the game brought my hopes back up for K.Rool. Sadly during Smash 4 I didn't have much hope, so I hope all this waiting will pay off and we will be able to celebrate in the real character Discussion threads.

I think the issue is the wait. The uncertainty and nerves are the worst part. Sakurai knows we want information. I feel like he's dragging it on and on just to torture us lmao. Hope it ends up worthwhile... I got highly gung-ho for Smash 4. And the final roster (including Bayo's reveal) killed it.

I really want K. Rool in Ultimate. Especially now that a character I hate is in before him. I'm just afraid to set myself up for disappointment again...

So lately I've been thinking about how K. Rool should appear in a stage once a match begins in Ultimate. Characters like Mario appear out of a pipe and DK out of a barrel. So what about King K, Rool? I figured how he appears in his fight in DKC seems obvious. Have him fall into the ground and have the slam sound effect play when he does.

What if his stage entrance was coming down on a chain like he did in N64, shouting out "THANK YOU."

If he has the blunderbuss he could always fly in with the pose he used when he glides.

Or the helipack. He might just jump in from the side, like in his original game when he jumps across the stage.

All that aside, Sakurai talked about K.Rool? What did he say about him? I've always been curious to what Sakurai's thoughts were on the big croc. We all knew his bias against ridley was mostly just "Too big." but has he ever talked about why K.rool was never in?

Someone else on here suggested his entrance should be that he doesn't enter the stage so much as he's there when the match starts, playing dead, but gets up when the fight begins. I've always agreed with that idea, although now I am partial to him entering from above with "thank you"s now.

I could see the playing dead thing working, but I don't think the "Thank You" one works well without his boxer outfit. Also, aren't character entrances faster now? I feel like they might be, but I'll have to look into it. If it is then I don't think his 64 appearance will work too well. I wouldn't mind it either way though. I do, however, still like his entrance in the original DKC a bit more. That's the one I'm more in favor of.

Thought I would show some leaks

"Leak" 1:
Hello. I have been informed by my sources that Smash Bros. Ultimate will have these characters, and feature some new stages.

Characters:
>Ken (Echo for Ryu)
>Metal Mario (Echo for Mario)
>Waluigi (Newcomer, bamboozle by Sakurai)
>Octoling (Echo for Inkling)
>Dark Samus (Newcomer)
>Shadow (Newcomer)
>Sora (Newcomer)
>Ninten (Newcomer)
>Vault Boy (Newcomer)
Stages:

>Random Kingdom Hearts stage
>Westopolis
>Deepsea Metro
>Hyrule Castle (BotW)
>Labo House
>Vault 76

More to come in the future.

Vault Boy is...new, but this leak has Sora, so therefore it must be true. Flawless logic on my part.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Leak" 2:
While the roster may have been supposedly decided in 2015, things change over development. Someone from within Bamco has come forward to me with info on characters being put into the game, some I think most of you are going to find odd. The Smash Ballot wasn't completely for nothing though, as it determined which characters ultimately got into the game.

The characters are: Metal Mario, Banjo-Kazooie, Mega Charizard X/Y (Echo), K.Rool, Dark Samus (echo), Decidueye, and Issac.

First things first, Simon IS in the game, but he's an assist trophy. He was a playable character in the planning stages, but the team dropped him down to an AT.

Banjo wasn't even a thought until 2016, which is when he was added due to sheer requests for him, much like Ridley. The Wonderwing isn't his final smash, and his up b is nothing anyone would expect.

K.Rool was added thanks to overall global requests and thanks to the Smash Ballot.

Decidueye was picked over Sceptile due to it being the most recent grass Pokemon starter. His Final Smash is Sinister Arrow Raid from Sun and Moon. Speaking of, Mega Charizard is in the game due to Charizard mains in Smash 4. It is the only PKMN Trainer Pokemon to get this honor, and yes, you can play as Y version and it too has 4 colors.

Issac was added to the game early on thanks in part to fan requests. It should be noted Issac's green hands are nowhere in his moveset.

Dark Samus was added as a more offensive version of Samus. Her F air has only one hit box for example and it does kill at low percents. Her Final Smash however, turns her into Metroid Prime.

Metal Mario is actually a throw back to Super Smash Bros 64, complete with his stage remade in Smash Ultimate. His side B is a diving tackle from Mario 64 and his down B is Mario Tornado. Metal Mario also has his step sound effect from 64 and falls like Fox did in Melee, but won't die at 260+ percents like he did in 64. Ask me anything else you would like to know, especially DLC.

I highly doubt that a character would be dropped to assist trophy status during development. They'd likely be cut and released as DLC if anything. Mega Charizard as an echo makes little sense as well. The Pokémon Trainer mechanic is much better for Charizard than Rock Smash, a crummy move that nobody used.

Geez, this is the wishlist to end all wishlists. If the Switch gets all of this? R.I.P. my wallet. We'll see how this one pans out on the 22nd.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Leak" 4:

-Nintendo direct in August, can't say which day
-Opens with trailer for Yoshi, still no title, showcasing co-op
-More information on Pokemon lets go
-More information on Kirby Star Allies
-Super Mario odyssey DLC
-Star fox grand prix
-Ends with Smash fighter reveal, Simon Belmont to be exact, Sakurai says 7 more fighters are coming

That's sparse for Nintendo's Fall/Winter lineup. Again, we'll see if this one's true in August.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Leak" 5:
View attachment 152429

Hello everyone I hope you're all having wonderful day. I was leaking info about Nintendo and was able to find some exciting info about a direct set for December of this year. here is what i found about it and some of the titles they will announce. Keep in mind its only some info not all.

>Direct is switch focused and may or may not include a couple of 3DS titles
>New Super Mario Sunshine inspired DLC for Super Mario Odyssey
>New info for upcoming Yoshi game with a new trailer
> Small teaser for Pikmin 4
> New Metroid Prime 4 trailer
> New F-Zero game labeled "F-Zero Heat Turbo" keep in mind its a working title
> More Smash Ultimate info, mainly talks about the stages and may include a new character reveal.
>The final thing I found was an image (the one that is attached) and some info alongside it. its a new F-Zero game collection titled "F-Zero Elite Collection" It contains 4 F-Zero games which are, F-Zero (SNES),F-Zero GX(GCN), F-Zero X (N64), and for the first time ever on consoles F-Zero AX (Arcade). I found that F-Zero GX & AX will both contain online multiplayer. In order to play online, it requires you to have a NSO subscription. The games play like they did before but with a few tweaks and improvements to make it feel better. You can switch between classic controls and updated controls to suit your play style and preference. Classic controls leaves the controls the same as the original but updated controls is where the controls are improved for the new controllers of the switch. it also has banners (like the snes mini has) and widescreen support. They can both be toggled on/off. The resolution for these games were up-scaled. It also has Gamecube controller support for a more classic feel. F-Zero AX also has Arcade mode controller setup which allows you to hold the joy con in a similar manner as you would while playing the original cabinet.

*The logo in the image attached for F-Zero elite collection is more than likely not final*

New F-Zero Game? F-Zero game collection?? I'd be surprised to say the least. Shoutouts to the logos OP made though. They tried.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do we have time for bonus "leak"?

Don't say that I don't love you guys, because I have 2 bonus "leaks".
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bonus "leak" 1:

You know what. **** it. I hate my job, I hate my life, I’m going to leak **** and get fired.
I work at Nintendo of America. IT IS NOT FUN OR SATISFYING!
> Waluigi was shown as an assist trophy to **** with everyone
> The old dagenrompa v3 leak is real. Monokuma and Monomi will be assist trophies
> Pichu I’m smash ultimate is way better than in melee.
> 4 more echo fighters
> 7 new challengers
Believe in it if you want, but it’s true.
Don’t expect anything else unless I don’t get fired.
**** Nintendo of America, **** you

This guy's angry. It's only game... Anyways, this "leak" doesn't say much, but gives us a general estimate of what to expect. It fits within the "codename leak" that people have been posting around as clickbait garbage, but 4 of them need to be echoes. Speaking of the "codename leak"...

Bonus "leak" 2:
The “code names” post was not inaccurate

But I would like to state that it did not include the two planned unlockable characters
The new character total including Ridley and Daisy was 15 not 12
A lesser known mario character to complete the mario party playables collection
And a second representative from a popular non-Nintendo franchise.

Both of these characters are planned to remain unannounced and only available by unlocking them through specific achievements

Again, this one doesn't say much. I'd guy that this one includes Shadow and Waluigi? I'd be very surprised if Waluigi made it in. Regardless, this combined with the supposed roster from the "codename leak" would be pretty exciting. 15 characters would put the roster at a whopping 81 characters, and with the potential of DLC (SORA), the roster could reach up to 100+ characters. That'd be exciting.

Its number 3 to look at even though its 95% chance of fake anyway

The part about the funkos

http://www.nintendolife.com/news/20...be_getting_its_own_range_of_funko_pop_figures

The slightest credibility of a leak

And it mentions are king and Dixie at the ending

Has Nintendo ever held a direct on the weekend though? They usually do it in the middle of the week.

I mean, I hope it's true. Not only do we get a lot of games and DLC I'd definitely get, but confirmation of the King as early as this month would be awesome. I just gotta be a skeptic on these things cause the influx of leaks lately is just making me more agitated we aren't getting any real news.

The main thing that seems unlikely to me is the FF7 remake coming to Switch. Maybe the leaker meant the PS1 HD port that came to PS4 and steam recently. It would make sense considering Cloud's now apart of the Smash roster!

Cuphead also seems iffy, but seeing as Microsoft and Nintendo are best friends now, it's not entirely unlikely?

That sounds way too good to be true...

Finally Wario instead of yellow Toad?! I've wanted this since the first NSMB. I can't believe it. And a K. Rool and Dixie trailer would be perfect. It would be weird to reshow some stuff we've already seen, though. I'm calling fake since it sounds too good to me (and pretty much every leak is fake anyway) but we'll see in 10 days latest I guess.

Yeah, everything in this Direct sounds too good to be true. The lineup sounds better than what they actually showed at E3.
I'm skeptical as always, but it's an interesting coincidence. Never in a million years would have predicted Nintendo making Funko Pop. I thought they were better than that!

Can we get a date/time on the "leak" that mentioned the Funko Pops? Today's Funko Pop announcement doesn't really add credibility to the leak if the announcement came first. ;)
The leak was at least first posted onto SmashBoards on Tuesday (so two days ago), but due to the discussion boards "new policy" about not sharing the 4chan links I can't find the exact time stamp.

Regardless, another point of evidence is what they state is in the Pokemon Let's Go trailer. Today we got a trailer for it and it was of the begining cities and first two gyms, meanwhile we haven't gotten a great look at the later/middle cities and gyms, which the trailer in the supposed direct said it would be covering.

To be fair, Nintendo has a knack lately of showing off the good stuff in their directs, leaving E3 to focus on a few games. Did that with Breath of the Wild, and they did it with Smash.

And Nintendo is always late to the party, so I'm not surprised they are making Funko stuff now. Although the Pokemon Company holds control of their goods, so really it's them making the call. But we'll see if Nintendo also plans for Mario and Zelda merch in this little "direct" of theirs.

Folks there was a leak that came out a few weeks ago saying something about Nintendo announcing a Pop Funko partnership... I think we need to find that leak because they just announced a Pikachu Pop Funko today.... Nintendo and Funko really are partnering up..



I'll say this much... I'm a decent Funko collector and a friend of mine is huge into it and he didn't know about this Pikachu... I have a buddy who has some connections to Funko and HE didn't even know about this... Funko has been saying they wanted Nintendo for years but it was a pipe dream for them. That's one hell of a guess on that leak... I didn't see that Pop on any leaked upcoming Funko lists they went out of their way to make that a surprise...

I'm not one to believe leaks/rumours, especially ones which sound too good to be true (except for Smash Tour returning lol), but then again... The Funko Pop thing was confirmed (for Pokémon at least), and we got a new Pokémon Let's Go trailer today with Brock/Misty, so the next logical step would be to show Lt. Surge. And as for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.... well, Takahashi just recently confirmed more updates are on the way for the game. Though it could just be more Labo integration.

Grabbed my attention, but will probably be fake haha. Also, hello, I don't post here as often as I'd like, but follow the discussion and am a supporter of K. Rool.
