i think the KH3 secret ending definitely means they got big plans for Neku; they want to promote him more.
Duh. And they should've a long time ago. Nomura even said he had plans for a sequel that were never brought to fruition way back when, but now we actually have a shot. Don't let the hype die down!

Neku needs an updated 3D model. You know, because the one in Dream Drop Distance looked weird.
Maybe it's because I was first introduced to TWEWY through Dream Drop Distance, but I thought his character model looked fine. I wouldn't mind if his character model in Smash looked similar.


Well, since other people were talking about it...
I was spoiled on KH3's epilogue, but I don't really mind. It's got me super hyped for the future of both Kingdom Hearts *and* The World Ends with You. I can't believe that Sora is actually in TWEWY's version of Shibuya. I didn't think they'd actually follow up on that "See you in Shibuya" line in Dream Drop Distance, and especially not this soon. It makes me hopeful that Square really does want to try to push TWEWY as a franchise under their belt, and hopefully that could also mean trying to get Neku into other games as well, including Smash.

I've been doing some work on a hypothetical Neku moveset, and I was wondering if I could get some feedback on what I have so far.
My main concept was to make as many attacks as I can representative of Psychs. I haven't done every attack yet, but I'd say I've made decent progress.

Neutral attack - Shockwave: Neku swings his hand, summoning an ethereal sword that slashes at foes.
Forward tilt - Force Rounds: Neku launches three projectiles forward in a stream.
Up tilt - Piercing Pillar: Neku summons a tall icicle that grows upward.
Down tilt - Apport: Neku summons a boulder that falls downward in front of him.
Dash attack - Spear Strike: Neku turbo-charges forward, mowing down enemies in his path.
Forward smash - Beat: As the attack is charged, Beat appears at Neku's back. The attack has Beat fly forward on his skateboard.
Up smash - Shiki: As the attack is charged, Shiki appears beside Neku and Mr. Mew appears overlapping him. The attack has Mr. Mew swing upward in a hefty uppercut.
Down smash - Joshua: As the attack is charged, Joshua appears behind Neku. The attack has Joshua summon debris that falls on both sides of Neku.
Neutral special - Explosion: Neku summons an Explosive Flame-like burst in front of him. The explosion lingers as long as the button is held.
Side special - Pyrokinesis: Neku launches a streak of fire forward. If the button is held, this streak can be freely controlled much like PK Thunder. It disappears after a certain amount of time or after the button is released.
Up special - Vulcan Uppercut: Neku slashes upwards, lifting himself up.
Down special - Spark Core: Neku summons an electric charge that orbits him, damaging any opponents it touches.
Final Smash - Fusion Attack: Neku calls on one of his partners to perform a cinematic renditon of a Level 3 Fusion Attack. If opponents are at high enough damage, the Final Fusion attack will instead play and instantly KO the opponents.

All the partners, all the reapers, and Mr. Hanekoma for sure.

Food should constantly appear during Yodai's fight, maybe Chef Kawasaki too. And Dr. Kawashima constantly spawns during Sho Minamimoto's fight.
>no The Moon during Sho's fight because "Any tree can drop an apple, I'll drop the freakin' moon"

:c

Would also be neat if Shiki and Sho were primary spirits that could evolve, so Shiki could evolve into her real appearance (not copying Eri) and Sho could evolve into Sho (Taboo)

oh and also a Coco Atarashi Spirit, she's canon as of Final Remix

Okay, yes, we need all of this.

Anyone got any ideas for Neku's DLC Spirit Board?
Characters with alternate Noise forms (like Higashizawa -> Ovis Cantus or Megumi -> Anguis Cantus) could be enhanceable into said forms.
I expect partners would use Neku himself as a fighter--or, if TWEWY spirits are added without playable Neku, they (including Neku) would use Ness and Lucas.
