could someone help me understand the overwhelming push for kkr? i understand that the donkey kong series could use a new rep, and i understand that kkr was the antagonist of the dkc trilogy, but he doesn't look to me like he fits in in the smash roster. he's not necessarily too big, but it's more in his design, he doesn't look like a fighter. i'd just like to know since there's the possibility he'll be revealed later today.
He's one of the most iconic bosses in Nintendo history but he "doesn't look like like a fighter...?"

Also, probably the biggest thing is his favor is the push for more villains, especially in light of Ridley.

Does Villager look like a fighter?
No.
But he's a Mad Axe murderer in Smash Bros.

Not looking like a fighter doesn't mean much.

I just don't understand what it is about K. Rool that makes him not look like a fighter. Don't even say he's too fat. Nintendo's god damn mascot is fat.

well not as fat as he used to be. But the game needs more heavyweight villains too.

I'm gonna come in and say don't get your hopes up for anything, be it K. Rool's appearing in Smash or another DK game that brings him back. Just keep up the cause and don't falter.

Be it today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, next century, next millennia, The Revolution will draw near.

It's crazy to think that, in just 20 minutes, our King could be back at long last.

If he's back, the ensuing wave of support will carry him the rest of the way through the vote.

If he doesn't show up, everyone ought to increase their voting support tenfold to ensure we don't fall behind. Like it or not, bandwagons WILL form in just 20 minutes, and if we're not one of them, we have no safety net. It'll be time for us to do what we do best...#KrocTheVote.

Okay, another presentation, another opportunity for the King to be revealed... (though a K. Rool reveal for the Smash DLC Direct was honestly a long shot) Going to make a draft once again, except that it will be at least useful if he's revealed to be back in another DK game!

Look at the positive side of things. No serious competitor showed up at E3. I doubt FE bandwagoners are going to overwhelm us.

That was literally the worst E3 conference of all-time. K. Rool may be dead, but he's taking the entire company down with him.

KING K ROOL IS HERE!!!!!! YES!!!! YEEEEES IT'S AWESOME!!!!!!!

Oh wait, yet another useless draft, not even for K. Rool's return in a Donkey Kong game. And not even a new Donkey Kong game. Even with Reggie holding bananas. I believed it so much... maybe in a later announcement.

Star Fox looks awesome (CHICKEN AIRWING YES!), but overall the Digital Event was... bad in my opinion. And looks like I'm not the only one who thinks this.

The Star Fox news was the best one out of this years conference and that new Mario Tennis game has me more hyped than Mario Maker as far as Mario games go. Oh well, at least DK and Diddy are able to be used in Monster Hunters so that's cool. Still a little disappointed though with the lack of DK game related material.

Look at it this way; at least K. Rool isn't hurt by the event.

...Seriously what the **** is Retro working on?!

now.. I get smash having it's own direct, but I am confused as to why he wouldn't be announced, particularly after that scene in the Nintendo E3 Digital Event that had the puppet caressing the bundle of bananas.. So pissed they didn't announce him. ****

He wasn't announced because he's not been worked on yet, is the most likely reasoning.

Some of ya'll get your hopes up WAY too much. Don't get all pissed at Nintendo/Sakurai not revealing anything when you have your own expectations so high. The ballot doesn't end till October. We still have a while.

Still, I will agree the event was disappointing. Like 85% of these titles we know about. It was less a Nintendo event, and more "Happy 30th anniversary Mario" livestream.

I'm not even disappointed. I just feel nothing. Other than Starfox Zero (which looks awesome) and Paper Jam, they had nothing except endless Mario Maker ****sucking.

Oh that was bad. God that was so bad. Sony wiped the floor with the others. FF7 Remake (about god damn time) and The Last Guardian (about god damn timer) and Star Fox Zero, which didn't even look THAT great, is all we really have to show for it. Oh, and DEVELOPER DIARIES.

Yeah, our expectations shouldn't have been too high with Nintendo hard at work on the NX, which is likely where all the good games are being saved for.

Disregarding Smash and DK entirely, this is one of the worst E3's regardless. I feel nothing, I actually feel embarrassed for them.

Sony did wipe the floor indeed. And that floor looks so clean now....damn The Last Guardian AND a ****ING Final Fantasy VII REMAKE???? Wow...just wow...Sony knocked it so far out of the park...seems like everyone else lost before they began...Sony IS innovating...and I could not be happier. My PS4 is ready.

Whilst also ****ting on what fans wanted.
"Here's a new Metroid! It's a spin-off of Prime without Samus. Also Metroid football"
"Animal Crossing Amiibo Party anyone?"

EA was so much better it's embarassing.

I just don't understand what it is about K. Rool that makes him not look like a fighter. Don't even say he's too fat. Nintendo's god damn mascot is fat.
i apologize, i worded that all wrong. when i said he didn't look like a fighter to me, i wasn't saying he didn't look capable of causing damage, i just meant he looked visually unappealing compared to the others, a purposeful part of k rool's design. i just thought it was a weird choice to want him to represent the series considering how someone with little to no knowledge of the character would perceive him.

The bigger reason why people like him, though, is because he's hilarious. K. Rool has a massive quirky personality, and has amazing expressions. Dedede has great expressions in Smash, and K. Rool would simply be amazing if filled to the brim with his full personality in this game.
thanks, that's really the kind of insight i was looking for. i still think he's an odd choice, but i do believe i understand a little better where you're all coming from.

Okay, guys. Here is a tip. When a huge event comes in, take a look at the miiverse or Sakurai's twitter. If he says something, we might get something. But if he is silent, then there is nothing related to Smash. Just thought I would point this out. Hope this helps.

I really wonder why the Smash Brothers presentation was not merged with the Digital Event. The Smash Brothers information could have given the stream more "meat". Presentation-wise, they could have handled it better (even with the same actual content).
