Apparently Nomura considered Switch ports of older games, but thought they’d be technologically difficult.

You know, despite the less powerful PS3 being able to run them just fine.
This is somehow both surprising, yet expected. Both the PS3 and PS4 ports ran into a large number of problems due to a combination of hardware difficulties and Square's own incompetence, despite being a bunch of PS2 and handheld titles.

Examples include:
Having to rip the original assets of KH from a retail copy because they lost the originals.
New and old bugs/crashes being present in the PS3 versions.
Sound problems.
The PS4 versions of KH/KH2 being completely borked thanks to doubling the frame rate to 60 fps.
-(Problems that the KH community was aware would be an issue years before the ports released thanks to modding and emulation)
The MONTHS LONG wait for a patch, which broke as much as it fixed.
The final gameplay altering patch not quite hitting everything.


The real answer here is they don't want to put in the effort.

This shouldn't hurt Sora's chances, but at the same time, this sort of treatment makes it hard to keep a positive outlook.

The official Pokemon Twitter account just posted lyrics to Simple & Clean
In my mind I already know that the pokemon Twitter account is most likely run by someone or people who don't have insider information. I also know that Sakurai makes these posts for fun and thus can't be taken seriously in speculation.
Oh yeah, and Sakurai also posted this on Tuesday:
Between this and the Poke-****post, I'm starting think the planets might be aligning in our favor.
But in my heart, Sora's already confirmed as one of the DLC characters for Ultimate.

I thought this was a more of a reference to when Cloud fell into the Lifestream. Y'know, that one Tropical Island he was sitting on for part of the game.

Just me then?

Remember all the pre-release smash leaks saying that Sora would be playable ? There were a ton of these at one point.
It's funny, whenever a leak like that popped up, you could be 100% sure that'd be fake.

Makes the character seem that much more unattainable, i'm not losing hope though, anything can happen.

I've said it before and I'll say it again - Sakurai's often-goofy pics of the day aren't hints that characters are coming to Smash. (or at least it's incredibly unlikely that they're hints) Remember when people thought that a screenshot of a Rathalos landing in front of a bunch of swordsmen was a hint towards Isaac from Golden Sun coming to Smash because it looked like a screenshot from that game's battle screen?

Apparently MoM was made in...Unity, of all things.

Which I suppose confirms that the Kingdom Shader scenes were pre-rendered.
