This reminds me, it hasn't been confirmed yet whether the blunderbuss or crown throw is K. Rool's neutral special. If it's the blunderbuss, is Kirby going to wear a pirate hat when using it?It has been 5 years since I made this silly little image.
Figures that now the kroc himself has returned, I'd revisit that concept again.
The way I see it, you can consider him the Adam West Joker to Ridley's Nolan Joker in that sense; one can potentially kill yet is mostly comical, while the other is a little bit comical but very dangerous.Huh, I never thought about that. On one hand, K. Rool literally pistol whipping his kidnapping victim seems hardcore. On the other hand, the intensity of that could potentially be considered lessened when you consider he was pistol whipping the same guy who survived an explosion from a barrel of TNT thrown at him by his own grandpa. Alternatively, one could also argue that just makes Cranky more abusive than K. Rool.
I know that feeling. However, I have a gut feeling that a certain Wah brand might get service soon as well, but we'll see what happens.With K. Rool in, now I feel selfish wanting anything else for Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Not the same name (Big Ape City), but pretty similar nonetheless. Makes you wonder what Pauline must think about the both of them being in NDC.How cool is this? New Donk City was the place where K. Rool's boss fight took place in in D.K Land so this will be the second time he visits the place.
What didn't help is "no new DK characters" spread like wildfire on other sites and already being taken like gospel. Even with the Klaptrap in to give us hope, people could shut us down with "Kritters were in Smash Run! It means nothing!" Thank Christ K. Rool got revealed immediately or else we could be spending months fending off people just looking to tear us down.What made the reveal even sweeter was just the night before the direct, pessimism was pretty high after Vergeben said one of his sources claimed no new DK characters. Of course, he claimed he didn't believed it, but the damage was done, and several posters were now just ready to wait for DLC. What made it worse was the leak galaga medleys for Bloody Tears and Monster Dance, which many assumed spoiled the main surprise of the direct which was confirming Simon. There were even some who planned to not even watch it because of this.
I had already replayed DKC1 and DKC2 in the last couple of months and said I would replay DKC3 if the King was in.
Me too. Already played through DKC 1-3 earlier this year but i think this situation demands seconds :D maybe DK64 too if my brother gives back my wii u
King K Rool is the primary antagonist of Donkey Kong, from 1993-2008.Who is King K. Rool?
i think he was trolling when you answered thatKing K Rool is the primary antagonist of Donkey Kong, from 1993-2008.
I'd recommend having a look at his boss battles from Donkey Kong Country 1,2, and 3, as well as Donkey Kong 64, to get the best feeling of the classic games from which most of his moveset is derived.
Mate, its a perfectly innocent (and in all honesty, pretty reasonable) question.
ah, well from hearing that who is question from the past, i assumed this was going to be another 2015-ish scene. Can't be too careful though, also i'm not trying to push anyone away tbh, i just don't want to go through that area again.Mate, its a perfectly innocent (and in all honesty, pretty reasonable) question.
His recent reveal will have confused some people who don't really know who the character is, and there's a reasonable chance some of them go to the most relevant place to ask about him. There's no need to push them away by assuming they're having a laugh.
I sure am ready to replay DKC1 to Celebrate K.Rool's arrival.
Yeah a lot of us on the Discord were pouring over all the incredible detail it had before his reveal. At first we just thought it was the blue gem, but then we examined it closer and noticed there was far more going on than expected.I feel like in retrospect the Mii costume was almost definitely taken from a prototype design of K. Rool and how he was planned to look. A lot of the elements in the costume made it over to the Smash 5 model. The vertical crease in his gold armor is missing in Smash 5, his cape has some wear and tear, and his bulging eye is less defined now but I definitely feel like the costume was just a way of saying "We know this is what you want, just give us enough time to make it a reality."
