Well whatever happens, this has been one of the most fun speculation rides I've ever had! I guess there's nothing to do now but...
This speculation cycle has been very lively to say the least xD The only negative point of Shantae's reveal as a fighter is that it would come to an end :(

Yeah, even with the October Dead-zone it's been a break neck hype cycle.

1. All the veterans are back, even Ivysaur and Snake
2. You're allowed to support clone characters thanks to rebranding
3. Characters irrelevant to marketing like K. Rool are getting in along with Nintendo's new stars like Inlking and Isabelle.
4. Indies have more hope than ever.

Long time lurker and with the final Smash Direct before release coming in two days, I made an account to show support for characters I want.

I got both Pirate's Curse and Half Genie Hero because of the support for Shantae found on this thread and loved the games immensely.

Here's hoping Shantae gets in!

Okay here it is.

That's it? This is the urgent post that ConnorBot wanted to post? I don't get what's the big deal here. Care to elaborate?


So sakurai retweeted the direct and said something.


Roughly translated it's 'We're doing it. It's the end!'
google translate is "I will do it. It is the end!"

What do yous think?
Sounds a bit passive-aggressive like something was spoiled. But yeah, it's definitely endgame for the roster. At November 1, I will decide what my DLC choices will be.

Just saw the news, can't wait for the wait to be over. Whether the Grinch is real or not, and whether Shantae is a AT, a character, or not in the base game at all, I'm just glad we're almost over with this wait.

It's all coming to this, the culmination. So it's possible that's all he meant. But I could picture him being a bit upset at the leak too. Depends on what the truth is. For all we know he might be laughing at it.

As for connor's thing. Well he wants to think of shantae as an AT because wants the leak to be real (which doesnt make sense since both could be in as fighters), and is worried about fans lashing out at WF. (which wont happen anyway)

It's normal to feel sad if she doesnt make it in, cuz we wanted her. It's normal to go through that and mourn a bit if that;s the case. We dont have to hide from our feelings. And it definitely shouldnt keep us from hoping for the best.
I think it's good to be open to whatever the truth is, finally finding out, and enjoying what there is as much as we can. :)

One of the kittens I told you about finally died and I couldn't stop crying oof.
I'm terribly sorry to hear that. Ever since my family and I were forced to say goodbye to our 20-year-old-or-so cat, I've had this image of her being put down burned in my mind for quite a while.

Our younger, 13-year-old cat has taken it the worst for the time; we believe that, to him, the older cat may as well have been his mother.

My only gripe is the direct is going down while I'm at work. My shift is going to be agony T_T

Still, looking forward to the reveals, whatever they may be.

And if Shantae isn't shown but survives another assist trophy carpet bombing in the direct, my hopes still go to DLC.

I'm so sorry. I know I'll cry my eyes out when my dog finally goes, but to lose such a little animal so young must be devastating. I pray that that little soul will find some peace.

Hearing what you guys have to stay is gonna make me cry some more, but good tears! :D the kitten and its siblings were going through quite the pain so we're gonna put the remaining kittens in a shelter tomorrow.

Can you not? I'm sad enough as it is.

I've got a similar problem. My remedy is having my brother set it up for me to watch when I get back, that way there's no spoilers when I do and look for it and the first videos have whoever's in's face plastered across the thumbnail

I just had a thought. Maybe Shantae's outfit design will be new just like Luigi's New Poltergusts 3000.

Just bookmark the direct page on the main Nintendo site, then just load the page when you get home. I mean things might be slightly different for a Smash direct but that's usually what I do when I miss a direct due to work.

Also, you gotta avoid scrolling down on the page because Nintendo usually lists the highlights.

I mean, if she's shown off as an AT, I think it's normal that we'll be upset and want to talk it out with our fellow supporters.
But yeah, as long as we dont get crazy out of hand. ;p

It's ok to feel bad if that happens. And a calm discussion is welcome.

I just wanna avoid having some one on our side sink down to the level of that toxic part of the Waluigu fan base.

It only takes one guy losing his S*** to ruin our reputation.

But I wouldn't take it out on others or bash WF or nintendo or anything.

So, that would probably mean a new Shantae game, was in the works too. I don't know how, and why they'd change her design that much, though.
Either that or doing a mix and match of her previous designs like her Half Genie Hero design as a base but her arm things from Risky's Revenge for example

You never know. She look even better than before. Just look at other indie character Lilac from Freedom Planet. Compare her FP1 and FP2 looks. FP2 version is clearly the superior.

She’ll be like a sable prince 2.0 and you are gonna like it.
Okay, first of all.. .Alucard already transforms. Useless to have two Assist Trophies that more or less cover the same gimmick.


Second, don't tell people what to think. You've been told this before.

I prefer her Freedom Planet 1 gear but the redesign does fit more with the series aesthetics.

Oof connor what happened to being against any thought of shantae being a assist.
He went full negativity when the banner leak "revealed" his true favorite Banjo & Kazooie, so now he's just kind of putting everyone else down.

Honestly I'm pretty sure it's just Connor being very young as opposed to being actively malicious. The constant flip-flopping, thoughtlessness in posting and and overdramatic wording indicates someone around 12 or 14. I'm not gonna give him too much flack if that's the case. It's something he'll grow out of eventually.

He's actually trying to make us like the idea of her being an assist (along with believing it). Which is still disrespectful of how we feel. And flippidy flopping.

He's a bit older, but has a certain condition.

Yeah, besides geno and isaac, if we can get Shantae and another gal that would be sweet.:) Elma, Celica, kat&ana or mona, .. whoever can make it :)
Impa or medusa as echos would be cool too.
More Ladies is always a plus to me

So sakurai retweeted the direct and said something.

What do yous think of it?
Pretty sure he is saying(or making us think) this will be ALL the smash info we get before launch, but we shall see :)

I watch at work. One of the pros of working in IT

James retweeted the Direct... Assist or Fighter? We won't know until Thursday.View attachment 173719
Well has he reblogged any of the past ones?
