I have to go bed shortly as I have a field trip down to the Neuse River Basin that requires everyone in my geochemisty class to be ready by 7:15 AM and I won't be back on Smashboards until after 5 PM eastern time.
Have a good night everyone!

Now that we're back on the dark for Fighter 5...

How about we talk about the real Match-up.

Beneath The Mask vs Psycho Soldier.
Which one is the most banger Vocal Remix, and why both of them are perfect?

You have 4 hours.
They're both going to be crap compared to the inevitable Devil Trigger by Casey Edwards Remix we're getting when Dante gets revealed for Smash.

Original Beneath the Mask trounces the 90s pop. In terms of remixes, I like Psycho Soldier's more.

I think it's cool you know for a fact they're not real. I don't believe any leak ever but you seem like the expert. Could you go into detail explaining why they are not legitimate and provide sufficient evidence?
I mean, I obviously can't provide evidence. Sorry about that.

So feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I can gather the Mii Costume leak was pretty much confirmed to be fake today and we're back to having no idea who it is even though I know it's totally a Resident Evil character. This next month is going to be very interesting because I'm predicting we're gonna be seeing a huge influx of leaks and rumors coming out as we try to figure out who the hell is actually next.

Also, I was talking to a friend about Smash stuff today and when I brought up the next character possibly being Doomguy or a Resident Evil character, he thought I said "Doomguy from Resident Evil" and just started astral projecting. Just thought I'd let yall know about that.

Understandable. Have a nice Day-
Totally agree with you.

I love them both, and the Remix of Beneath the masks is something I love because of how much it's a 180 of the original song, while keeping it's essence.
But yeah, Psycho Soldier is banger with that Retro Anime Opening feel.

Even though, the best remix in smash is Aria of the Soul for me, no matter what, I'll rather die than saying anything else.

I'm starting to think the Mii hat leak is fake. I was 50/50, but after watching the Terry presentation I noticed how all the Mii costumes were full costumes, while the Mallow and Doom demon costumes were just hats; on top of that, there are also some major leakers saying that the leak is fake. It's possible that they are legit, but I'm more toward fake now... 75/25 fake.

Praying for that. But a Devil Trigger remix made by Sakuraba or Shimomura could be a nice experiment.
Also in the scenario of Dante getting in I would expect a remix for Devils Never Cry (plus the original version of the song, ofc)

Slime and Morgana are just hats, for what it's worth. Not saying anything about the leak's authenticity, but just wanted to note that.

A lot of what transpired in here the past few pages is giving me a "It's not doomguy" vibe.

While that may be my own confirmation bias playing with me, that's what I'm getting from some of the posts here.
Yeah that's the vibe I got from Sabi's source.

If that's the case, the salt from 4chan is going to be great.

My take on the Mii leak is not about arduous it would be to fake it but if it was real....how did they get the time and planning to have three people record enough HIGH QUALITY, clear footage whereas the Ken leak looks appropriately blurry and quickly taken that implies it was done in haste to not get caught.

Im focused on how they had enough time to do that.

Hey, does anyone remember this Smash Bros. fansite that was created in anticipation of Brawl's release?

http://web.archive.org/web/20060409...ne.com:80/CharacterPages/characterselect.html

What do you all think about this being Smash Ultimate's roster by the end of all DLC and whatnot?

2006: Fan rosters that have more FE and Pokemon reps than Ultimate does right now

Personally, I’ve been leaning towards fake since the beginning that video started spreading everywhere! Though, I still believe that Doom Guy and Geno could still make it in, but I think they’ll come a bit later in the post-Fighter pass than sooner. Just my take.

As far as Fighter 5 goes, it could literally be anyone, so it’s anybody’s ball game at this point. If I had to guess I say it’s between a Capcom or Bandai character.

Frontrunners for both:
Bandai:
Lloyd (most likely)
Heihachi (not as likely Lloyd, but could still have a shot)

Capcom:
Leon/Jill was (most likely)-Resident Evil is one of the few top selling series to still not be in Smash, I think it has a good shot to eventually make it in. I think anyone would be fine with either Leon, Jill, or Chris but I think they’ll go with Leon as the default, cause RE4 is one of the more popular RE games and he’s one of the most popular characters s Resident Evil has to offer.

Dante-(kinda) if Leon (or Jill) don’t eventually show up, I think he’s the next best bet for Capcom. His series has gotten pretty popular with Nintendo fans but this past year with DMC being on the Switch. So, he would be a next best choice for them.

I really think it’s going to be between Bandai or Capcom to whoever gets that fifth slot. I do think it’s a bit weird that Bandai still don’t have a second character at this point, and they’ve worked on Smash for the past two games, they deserve somebody else. Also with Capcom it’s prety surprising that the only thing we’ve got from Capcom so far this DLC round goes had only been Mii costumes. I think Capcom is going to get someone else of the third parties, they seem to be the most collaborative. I wouldn’t put it pass them that they won’t eventually get someone else whether their Character 5 or post pass DLC.

Put your best bets in for Fighter while we’re still in the dark, because who knows how long that’s actually going to last.

To be fair, during the Brawl days there wasn’t so much emphasis for Third Parties like there is now. I’m sure that played a role into why fan rosters were that way at the time. Sonic and Snake seemed like a one off thing at the time so filling out First Party lists were padded with more Pokemon and FE.

If there is in the end no bandai namco or capcom character for FP 5. Who is it left?

There were rumors that said no ryu hayabusa or crash.
The leak of the Cacomallow mii costume is being questioned and probably means no geno or doomguy for the next fighter reveal. (However I still think they will happen in the future).

I personally think that the last fighter will be from a company not yet represented in any form in Smash. Also it will be no rpg, plataformer or fighting game character.

What are your thoughts?

Edit: Please be Hollow Knight...

You know what, now that I think about it, Kos mos would be kind of cool if she got in smash
shes like a living breathing tank, the only reason I didn’t want her in at all was probably because I didn’t want her to end the pass, and I still don’t, but I’m fine with her being future dlc.

I humored the list and circled everything we have.

Red: They're a fighter
Yellow: They are incorporated into a fighter's moveset or design
Blue: They're an Assist Trophy

We've really come a long way.

Tom Nook should have a yellow circle.

Also, since Sabi has spoken, I am on Team Fake until further evidence changes my mind.

Same. We finally have a word from the higher ups, and they believe it's fake.

Can we just put this leak behind us and discuss...y'know, other games possible for Smash?
