I never expected anything to top last year's Blizzcon but oooh boy. This will be something.

People generally try to forget that game existed. It's a very nice tradition and I'm saddened to see you disregard it so.
Work has been super boring so I needed "My wife is now my robotic arm" to keep me.going yesterday. And I am far too punky to like tradition

Everytime the Super Crown gets mentioned, it reminds me of Midnight Bliss. Which reminds me of Capcom's biggest missed opportunity: female Dhalsim.

That's a way more interesting design, IMO.

Even though there are more plausible ways to work around it, I kinda want them to keep hatless Terry's animations the same, and have Sakurai explain it like "What? He's use to wearing a hat. Old habits die hard" or something.
I take this back. You've inherited a lot from your two dads, Rock, so the least you can do is let Garou Terry borrow that hair flip animation for Smash.

Just wanna remind you all that Monster Hunter is still a thing. Rathalos appearing as a boss doesn't invalidate the Hunter's chances in season 2, especially with how no other Monster Hunter content is available in the game besides the dragon. There are no spirits of other monsters and characters, just Rathalos. And the only music that is available are the ones related to the Rathalos boss fight.

If Rathalos truly was all what we were getting in relations to Monster Hunter then you'd think we'd get more content related to the series no?
I always thought the same. And it would be weird actually if the Hunter was totally excluded. They made a move set for another fighting game for the Hunter right? It's one of the last remaining franchises with a big connection to Nintendo. I'm still kind of expecting Monster Hunter to be the 5th character on the Fighter Pass actually.

Alright. We all know that Terry is Hat Ken (or buff Pokemon Trainer according to the young Japanese audience), Banjo-Kazooie is Duck Hunt 2.0, Hero is Fire Emblem Goku, and Joker is edgy Shulk.

For the sake of having fun, what dumb and silly nicknames/comparisons would you probably see for certain characters? For example, Heihachi is Boomer Ryu, Hayabusa is Black Sheik, Geno is Wooden Mega Man, Master Chief and Doom Slayer are Green Samus, and Tracer is yellow Bayo.
Oh yes it would be my man!

Hol' up. Are we talking like Capcom or in general? Because if we're talking in general we still have Ninja Gaiden, Rayman, Bomberman, Chrono Trigger, Series of Mana, Rabbids, No More Heroes, etc.

If we're just talking about Capcom then you still have stuff like especially Okami, especially Ace Attorney, Resident Evil, Viewtiful Joe, Final Fight, and even Ghosts & Goblins that still have a PRETTY strong connection with Nintendo. Monster Hunter is huge but it's definitely not one of the last series with big connections to Nintendo. There's a LOT of directions they can go.

Don’t forget Story of Seasons! Everybody does it seems.

Also since we’re including series that already have content in Smash Mystical Ninja fits the bill as well. Though that one is markedly less likely for many reasons.

I would like to give Terry (sounds like a dog food franchise) a haircut. O.o Guys with this long hair looks less attract to me. XD

After all the recent information, I believe that Lloyd is going to be one of the next DLC characters. Not Fighter 5, as I still think we're going to get Doom Slayer for that spot.
But Lloyd and Geno have the most going for them for post-Fighter's Pass DLC.

I know people REALLY don’t want a Blizzard character because of the terrible stuff they as a company have done, and I’m not disagreeing on that, but I highly doubt adding them in the game will damage Nintendo’s pride when they already have:
Microsoft(Watch VideoGameDunkys video)
Konami
Sega
I’m Probably missing a company.
Not to mention, wasn't the Dragon Quest music guy a total homophobe??

Snake Man's stage from Metal Blade Solid
I will never get over the fact that the legitimate canon reason Doom Slayer is able to survive everything he has is because he's just too damn pissed off to die.

10/10 lore.
What makes this funnier is that this usually applies only to ghosts and stuff.

Now, I know I'm probably betraying all 4 of my fellow active Sakura Shinguji supporters, and that she's less likely to be picked over her, but it needs to be said: Gemini Sunrise is cooler (just look at that name!). And for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, it's time to familiarize you with the character. Actress/Cowgirl/Samurai with a split personality and a robot that fights with a gun, a katana, and on horseback. Cheerful cowgirl; disciplined samurai. She's like if Texas had a lovechild with Japan. I have no idea why her game never made it overseas; I think it would've been a hit. Edit: Apparently, it did make it overseas. They knew.

I think I first ran into Gemini Sunrise long ago in a meme or something (with no context), but Sakura Wars is worth checking out (and learning about it properly introduced me to Gemini). The reboot is getting an international release, and it looks like a lot of passion was put into the project.

Yes Banjo, and probably K.Rool too. If anything, Isaac could also be a Europe based pick. We really really loved Golden Sun over here.
Same for Style Boutique; the series sold like hotcakes out there (at least ~3 million, IIRC)

You.

YOU.

SISTER. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?

Also, it did make it overseas, Gemini's game is one of the only ones that did, I believe.

Oh I actually bought a figure of her a long time ago because I remember seeing her in Project X Zone and it was someone trying to get rid of their figures lol
