Judging by the tournament including all hat/helmet wearing peeps already in the game, probably not

likewise if a potential fighter didn’t get spirited away in a themed event, that may be a good thing for their chances

just a theory of mine, anyway

I guess we should discuss potential fighters without headwear.
gotta mention crash already just because
Throwing my obligatory hatless robot out there:

Actually, since he lifts his head to store weapons, does that count as a hat?

Yet another 4chan leak, only this time there's ZERO mention of Smash.
I'll give the leaker (not the person with the leak in their post) credit for being a bit more realizable with their blatant wish list, though.
I'm not made of gold though.

I think its fake.

Thoughts on Danganronpa's music getting in Smash? I like the main games' (1, 2, and V3) music, but I don't think most of the tracks would fit in with the rest of Ultimate's music without remixing it. (I feel the same way about Plants Vs. Zombies music.)

OOOOO THAT MEANS NEW FATAL FURY FIGHTER JOE HIGASHI FOR SMASH

Do people really wish for new spirits? Do you guys even use the spirits or do you guys just want to see who gets "deconfirmed"? It's fine if you're just collecting them, but still...

It's a Zero Sum game
If someone gets disconfirmed from a series that was competing with a series I wanted, it's there's less competition for them and the likelihood it's someone I wanted drastically increases.

And if it's a series I wanted that gets shot, well, at least it's something new to talk about.

I guess no news is good news... AaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaAaaaaaaaaaaanyways, IF (and that's a big if) we are getting new spirits (outside of Cheese Piz- er, I mean Challenger Packs), I wouldn't anticipate any until the middle of one of the upcoming Winter months, particularly next month. However, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't get any, although that hasn't happened since the wait between Trunks and Burger King (shown below) and that wasn't a very long wait.
:ulthero:wait:ultbanjokazooie:
I don't regret any of this.

it takes a pretty big ****storm to get nintendo to even CONSIDER reversing a dumb decision. remember when Nintendo Switch Online was going to give us a grand total of ONE NES or SNES game per month? months of dunks later it was improved to a library.

the way they treat smash competitively despite being more popular than anything they try to push a competitive scene on is ridiculous. it's like denying your eldest child their dream of being an athlete because you're paying to put them through clown college. meanwhile, they're still a better athlete than all your other children. said children either have arms like spaghetti or an allergy to water.

just like the rest of 2020, nintendo has been disappointing and lazy and raking it in. they have no incentive to change anything.
Heck, is not like their support to Splatoon and ARMS's competitive scene is that great either:

Nintendo's approach to e-sports, in general, seems very similar to how they handled their mobile games ventures this past few years: they talk about being committed to it to their investors, but when it comes to actually do something about it they never put much effort into it beyond the absolute minimum.

"Lustrous Pearl and Nebulous Diamond" are possibly the worst names I've seen for a couple of Pokémon games!

Shining Diamond and Shimmering Pearl.

I thought of that in like two seconds and its infinitely better.

Yeah, that sounds better!
But I'm thinking about what I would play in case those are their actual names. I won't play Shining Diamond and Shimmering Pearl, but something like "Diamante Splendente e Perla Scintillante". It sounds a bit strange to me... maybe because it's a long name 😅

On one hand, I feel like facepalming because people are taking a weird tournament about hats way too seriously. On the other hand, quite a few of my favorite characters don't have any headwear, so...

Actually, nevermind. If it's not because of hats, I'm sure there's some other arbitrary reason why my characters are "already deconfirmed".

Get this cringe ass naenae baby out of here, the superior hat wearer is Professor Layton and you know it*


* Note, never actually touched a Layton game but that's a dapper looking hat
Does Layton change between different hats and actually get powers from said hat or hats though?

Checkmate Layton fans

Unless he actually does have multiple hats and gets powers from them, then, uhhh, uncheckmate I guess (I never played a Layton game either)

All I know is that he's crossed over with Pheonix Wright, that alone is huge news but he's from one of the few examples of games being dubbed in Dutch. Take that!

The tourney suggests that the next fighter does NOT have a hat, since they cannot be included.
That’s the theory I was thinking of

likewise you know how the Lotus spirit got added into the Black event? If a potential new fighter who doesn’t have a spirit in base misses a themed spirit event, it could actually be a good thing for them as they wouldn’t be spirited away with that theme

Well, Nebulous also doesn't even make sense in this context.

Im not saying the names will be great when they happen- FireRed isn't as good as flame red, to me.
But- the names are at least logical and complimentary to each other.

I can't tell if people are joking or if they genuinely don't understand the reasoning used to predict Steve reveal was going to happen soon based on skipped tournament events.
