So there's a rematch going on at a certain fan tournament.

Spyro only won that match due to fake accounts and he doesn't even check to make sure those account are real or fake. Which is dumb. Are haters that much salty for a character that they would cheat in order to win in a FAN tournament!?!?!

Perfect time for Luigi to spot Rottytops or maybe some HGH backer enemies...? :D
Lookalikes would still be pretty neat.

This coming from the guy who shouts at the top of his lungs for every little update on it involving his favourite character?

Never bought into this format in the first place myself. You should always be able to speak about what characters you'd like in Smash at any given moment, and no fan can ever hope to make a comprehensive list of wants.

I never see anyone pop up to address double posts on other character threads. :ohwell:

Are you guys even really surprised? Its also a fan made thing, so it really doesn't worth squat. It's been discussed that would happen again since it happen in the past.
This, absolutely none of it frigging matters. It's like The Emperor's frigging New Clothes. Most people don't realise that a fan poll tournament's final results don't even affect anything except a character's e-peen. Basically just passing the time in a way that doesn't involve posting here or playing Ultimate.

Like Spongebob once said, "It's just a game, you know.".

im not surpried it happend, there will always be at least a few suspicious accounts/votes on any fan made poll. its unavoidable

The difference is most other fan polls at least TRY to police issues like this. there is usually some sort of Vote Via IP thing to make it THAT much harder to stuff the ballot box, YouTube comments have no such policing tools.

Honestly, the feeling of this being the last smash game, Sakurai giving his all and literaly the title called ULTIMATE. Its sure to cause many to scramble to see their favorite character(s) duking it out since this is the only time this many are gathered in one place. Whatever it takes, even if it means to play dirty.

Good thing Shantae can cheat by wish granting for herself if she really tries.

Been playing Indivisible. Not gonna lie: it's a real game of the year contender. The merging of turn based action and fighting games with the directional buttons representing each member of your party feels amazing! Shantae is gonna be so much fun mixing her moves with the other characters' whenever she gets added.

Yeah, do we have a timetable for that, as well as how they'll be implemented? It would be nice if the Switch version has everything ready to go when it launches.

If we go by the original concept of djinns being lower-class divinity figures, would that make Shantae demidivine by nature? :p
Actually given how half breeds tend to almost always tap into some unheard of latent potential in fiction. She's likely a full on divine.
Hey well, it worked for Hercules, so why not? Being demi-divine, I mean.

I have not seen shantae's commercial for the GBC. Though, it must have been shown in tv years ago or somewhere on a VHS tape with a movie or show.
My money (if Legit) is on an old Video game magazine demo reel kinda thing.
Back in the day it wasnt unheard of to get a VHS or DVD of nothing but Trailers, every once in a while with your gaming magazine subscription.

Wanted to post this since it Miiight be interesting? Its a reconstruction of an article from March 2018 search the link in google to go to a translated version.

Speculative as this might be, it's interesting to see Shantae mentioned on a Japanese blog and it did make me recall some Tweet or other official blurb that had Layton talking about a tournament and meeting a strange blue robot boy (Mega Man).

Hey guys been awhile, but i giess i haven't missed much.

So our Shantae girl Christina vee put oit a new cover song... her singing a rock remix of lifeloght from smash ultimate. Coincidence, or hint, you decide :p

I think it's just Vee being Vee. As much as I'd love for it to be Shantae, while I'm all in for putting my eggs in a basket, I am a bit cautious.
