I find it a little interesting that we've had 3 whole companies deconfirmed in the last 24 hours in Ubisoft, Falcom, and Ichi but the Dante deconfirmation was just Dante. Sabi also went looking for info on Lloyd and hasn't brought anything back yet. Thinking it's probably a Namco or Capcom right now

So that's Ezio and Rayman dead for sure now
Aww damn, Falcom was a company that I thought was likely. That said I didn't think they would really have a shot at character 5 either, but it sucks either way.

So literally only Bamco/Level-5 are the glaring omissions who's central reps have not been disconfirmed. I still think Level-5 is still unlikely due to money issues they have.

I think it's pretty clear it's Bamco considering none of their characters have gotten deconfirmed, and Sabi hasn't spoken about anything she found about Tales either. But we're getting bigger and bigger disconfirmations now, which means that we aren't that far away from character 5's official reveal.

I'd say the top 5 most likely now are:

-Lloyd/Yuri
-Heihachi
-KOS-MOS
-Chosen Undead
-Agumon

followed by another 3rd party character, not from Bamco such as Phoenix.

Falcom is a really random deconfirmation to make outta nowhere.

I almost assumed he meant Capcom before someone explained to me that a GameFAQs user was actually asking about a Ys rep.

Honestly convinced Verge and Sabi are playing a very drawn out game of Guess Who with their all-knowing source and updating us whenever a piece flips down.

Groan, it's like we're playing 20 questions with these leaker circles.

Except the questions are getting really invested in any one character.

These next two weeks are gonna drag...

Hey man in terms of Falcom i'm just glad i've been seeing more Adol and Rean supporters rising up and getting people curious about Ys and Trails/Kiseki.

In the end that's more my mission than getting either of them in haha.

Sabi said it's not Dante. Don't mix her bull**** in with Vergeben.

Ah damn, RIP Ezio, at least for Fighter 5. Still possible for post-Pass at least.

Where have you been for the last 2 months? She's slowly been building popularity since the start of October.

Most people think she is unlikely when compared to a Tales or Tekken character (I agree), but the possibility is definitely there.

She's definitely been more seriously discussed then 2B for the last 2 months at the very least. More and more eyes have also been falling on Bamco for the last month or so, which naturally only increases her discussion.
I participated in the Kosmos discussion at around those times. It’s hard to notice the popularity when you’re in the crowd.

You want to know a leaker that it seems like we've completely tossed to the wolves to, LeakyPandy! Whatever happened to them?! It seems like ever since the Square character mishap happened we haven't heard anything from them about Smash since!

Honestly I still see Falcom being even brought up in regards to Smash discussion nowadays as a win for our smaller but very loyal and dedicated quarter of the gaming world. Even with deconfirmation.

Maybe i'm weird though hahaha.

They were saying a DQ rep at the game awards about a year ago and nothing since. Weird.
Sabi said it's not Dante. Don't mix her bull**** in with Vergeben.
Ok, can someone point me to why people in here who lose their **** every time Sabi gets brought up? To my knowledge he/she hasn't gotten much wrong.

So far, the following have all been claimed to be deconfirmed, at least for Fighter 5...
  • Crash
  • Doomguy
  • Geno
  • Ryu Hayabusa
  • Tracer
  • Scorpion
  • Dante
  • Any Nippon Ichi character
  • Any Falcom character
  • Any Ubisoft character
... I think that's all, unless I'm missing someone. Anyone else?

Ok, at this point, it's clearly someone I don't care about. I'd welcome getting my expectations in check.

Sabi can occasionally get a tad egotistical, although they've been reining it in more of late.

Wow, right when I was about to talk about Ys lol. No joke.

Welp... we're not going to close out Season 1, but, uh here's a song:



And a (sadly) relevant Estelle Quote #49

this is how the OTHER Estelle (Sidos Heurassein) can still win...


in all seriousness... it most likely IS Bandai Namco and since Bamco's leak ninjas are more ruthless than Nintendo's, this is how they're going about it

I just had an interesting thought: Verge and Sabi apparently both have sources that know who the character is for what seems like a month in advance from their reveal. Wouldn’t that make it LESS likely for it to be a Bamco rep? Even Banjo was leaked only a week before E3, yet it seems that these “sources” were able to say that it wasn’t Ryu from incredibly early on in comparison.

I mean, I think it's pretty obvious who Fighter #5 is.

Cranky Kong had everyone at The Game Awards on their feet when he was revealed for Tropical Freeze, so they're going to put in the character that will make Ultimate truly legendary.

KOS-MOS had a lot of discussion a week or two ago. There hasn't been much since then.
Well, discussion has been pretty much dead until the RE disconfirmation. Nothing really happened to KOS-MOS's chances, just that most people think Tales/Tekken is more likely.

Apparently, the chances of fighter #5 being from Capcom, Square Enix or Bandai Namco has risen up. It can even be a Nintendo character.
but... we already got a Square Enix character :ulthero:

i still don't think we'll repeat companies this pass. Nintendo is totally possible tho

I legitimately think the leaker is hired by Nintendo so they can rise up the hype with the growing land scape of disconfirmed characters. Nintendo hasn’t ever posted third party spirits till now.

Imagine, the one to crush the “Spirits disconfim characters” rule is not Bandana Dee, not Rex, not Geno...

it is HE

You forgot my boy Tetris Block after it followed its fate to the spirit realm just the RE character recently.
