Like I said, still lines up with things I've heard so it's an interesting coincidence.
I'm gonna need more details than "it lines up with things I've heard". Literally anyone can say that. It's such a vague statement that means nothing.

Decided to look up V and, since I'm not super familiar with DMC, what would the chances of this character either having a speaking role in a Dante trailer or as a background cameo?
A single game. DMCV. Won't say more than that for the sake of spoilers. Nintendo has a clear pattern of classic preferences for characters, so the answer to that question is a 0% of V showing up in any trailer.

Little to no chance

Trish, Lady, Nero, and especially Vergil are far more likely to play any part of his trailer. V is a very specific one n done character that will unlikely make an appearance in anything not DMC5 related ever again.

Alright, that's fair. Basically rumors that Dante specifically started development very recently as in the past couple of weeks suggesting, like I said earlier, probably no earlier than a November or December release if true.

I've seen Fatmanonice's posts on the Geno forum he's 100% honest with everything if he says something I completely trust it. He's a good dude you can believe.

I don't know how good Dante's chances are but I believe he has a good chance and I'm hoping the result is him in Smash.

I think Dante has a good chance of appearing but I don't think Fatman said anything the thread didn't knew nor hearing rumors has any value whatsoever.

Even ignoring Fatman's nonexistent track record, he has said basically nothing as again, random dudes have always been saying Dante's likely with varying degrees of credibility. This is literally nothing new nor is this new fancy person saying it significant at all in terms of leaking stuff

Please bro I'm begging you people pretending to have info have been saying this about Dante since the DMCV faked Smash info, the DMC ports and now the 3 port being a definitive edition of sorts, Dante's been a frontrunner for rumours for a while so this won't even fet you clout
I second this notion. I'd appreciate if we kept it to DMC appreciation and wishes, with viable and decisive proof if presentable. None of that rumor weaving and tail chasing of possibilities we are all already well aware of.

Alright gotcha, seems very likely going to hope for the best. But I do think there's a chance he gets in.

Hoping for the best.
This is the DMC fandom, we don't need hope, we need pizza, good music, and a gun to shoot at mops covering people's hair

I'm just sharing what I've heard. Yes, Dante had been heard in rumors a long time but now it's actually something substantial as in "oh hey, Dante's probably finally begun development." Like I've said in the Geno thread, Dante was commonly heard so much throughout 2019 that a lot of people were wondering if he was fake or not but that's very recently changed.

Thanks for sharing what you've heard though. Happy to hear his chances are good!

Definetly a good sign and hopefully he will be coming! As an upcoming fighter!

Call me pessimistic but a guy who didn't even double check who voiced who cannot have discussed Dante in actual leaker circles, especially as that rumour was already discussed in this thread. This whole ordeal literally means nothing

Now to bring this thread back on track:

Folks, what is your most wanted DMC track? Because I can give you mine.

[Lock & Load] or riot.

Give me Divine Hate 2. Made my Vergil playthrough hella more enjoyable, especially as those asshole enemies are weak to dark get introduced to it when the song first plays iirc

I don't think discussing a rumor is wrong per say, but this one seems like it's been shut off pretty quickly to really pay it any mind. Looks like that whole scene has been pretty quiet post VGA unless you want to follow nonsensical theories like Sakurais PotD tweets or the dumb color theory.
Track wishlist, any of the Vergil battle themes, I'll get you back to any DMC5 mentions whenever I get to play it soon

It's a new but iconic track, but I hope we get Devil Trigger. Even if it's shortened or abridged, having this song play in Smash would be incredible.
Other runner-ups would be Shall Never Surrender and Devils Never Cry.

Dante's pretty cool. Probably my most wanted Capcom rep right now, if only for the Bayonetta x Dante crossover.
While my most wanted Capcom rep is Viewtiful Joe, I’d lie if I said I would hate or dislike any other Capcom newcomer.

The company is seriously a goldmine of characters, with probably a 90% of them at least feeling as really great fits for Smash (Dante included).

I welcome any Capcom rep in general because the sole idea of getting any is just worth celebrating.

"Now introducing season 2, the Capcom Fighter Pass."

The hype would be unbelievable.

(Or they could just make a Nintendo x Capcom spinoff fighter at that point.)

Among spirits and cameos, I think Trish, Lady, Nero, Vergil are a given no matter which version of Dante we get. What other could they possibly add?

Vergil's Spirit should evolve into his Devil Trigger.

Also true.

They should add Sparda. He'd be sick as a Spirit.

Would anyone else find it funny if they added Donté, el exterminador de demonios? (Language warning in Spanish)

I think it'd be funny.
Considering Banjo got nothing from the games people don't know or pretend not to know, safe to say we won't see Donte at all
