It would be funny if Bomberman (Act Zero) and Bombergirl were added in as playable characters in the game.
Inb4 Youtube dislikes

It could be possible, they will have to tone down Bombergirl ALOT since the game is adult as it gets.

Then again, Rumble Roses was referenced and that was a fanservicey wrestling game.

Edit your post instead of triple posting
I do imagine that again Richter would be added in to celebrate the 1 year anniversary of Smash Ultimate.

There is a trope called "Overshadowed by Controversy". Don't want to support their products, that of course is fine but if I were you, I wouldn't use polictics as a reason to not buy a product no matter how sour it is.

it's not politics, it's about how Konami treats its employees ridiculously horribly

I'm sorry but as much as it'd be nice to see Bomberman continue the idea of supporting--*retch*--Konami again makes me ridiculously uncomfortable, but you're well-within your rights to keep supporting Bomberman.

In terms of Bomberman, I assume the alts would be the 8 Bomberman Bros, from Super Bomberman R?
also btw add me to the support list.

Well looks I will not hear the end of it but again, it's fine not to support their product if you don't want to but I do remembered reading a comment from Spazzy_D "...Love the IP, but not the company..."

Regardless whether Hudson's trapped in purgatory, I just wish that Master Higgins and Bonk got acknowledged again.

You know, I know this is a Bomberman thread but imagine if they added this Belmont as an echo fighter for Simon instead of Richter View attachment 200938
I don't think that'd blow over well, people already complain about "too much anime characters" without an actual Mine Yoshizaki girl being involved.

People are fine with him, since they only ever complained about "CV anime" when Ayami Kojima was dropped between Aria of Sorrow and Order of Ecclesia. I guess that if it's 90s anime, it's okay.

Well, that, and Judgement baffled everyone with the decision to get Takeshi Obata involved.

One more time I mention Bombergirl but I already mention this before I deleted it but I remember reading a twitter comment that is the worst-case scenario, adding Bombergirl in Smash before Bomberman.

I've supported Bomberman for almost 3-4 years (Although he's not one of my favorite characters). When I saw Bomberman as an assist trophy last year, I was very dissappointed. As I've aforementioned, I got even more upset when Joker/Ren became playable. Not only because a significantly inconic character who has a potential to be playable became an assist trophy, but also because an undericonic character who also didn't have enough support became playable. I felt that the roles of Bomberman and Joker/Ren should've been switched.

But On the bright side, since Isabelle and Dark Samus were assist trophies in Smash 4 and were promoted in Ultimate, I can see Bomberman's high chances of being playable in Smash 6.

Isabelle and Dark Samus were promoted to clones. Glorified alts. Bomberman could never be one of those so he's in a rather different position.

I have to say that having Bomberman as an assist trophy is just as bad as having Sakura (Cardcaptor Sakura) as a support character in a shonen jump game.

Would you consider Cardcaptor Sakura the progenitor of cardgame anime? I wouldn't personally say that it was a genre until YuGiOh, which actually did get a starring role, but the argument could certainly be made. Bomberman and the clones thereof, though, they're undeniable. Leaving him out seems like a worse offense to me and I like Sakura.

I agree, it was a bit evil to make Bomberman an assist. But on the bright side, he still has a high chance of being promoted to playable in Smash 6.

Here's my reaction:
I need to note that the two have nothing to do with each other, and it's just a coiencidence that the roles of the two characters in the video above should've been swapped in my opinion.

And also, if Sakura was a support character in a shonen jump game and Konata was playable, I would say that the roles of Konata as a fighter and Sakura as an assist should've been swapped.

Also, do you think that having Bomberman as an assist trophy effects the chances of Yu-(insert suffix here) being an assist trophy in Smash 6. I would love to have Yu-(insert suffix here) replace Bomberman, and Bomberman becomes playable.

And by the way, there is a new server for the Super Bomber Bros.

Feel free to check it out since KuroiKamen is hoping to help the movement grow and see more Bomberman fans on Discord.

The link is right there in the OP.

Now that ATs got a shot again, I can finally join the support for Bomberman!

Man, he got disconfirmed way too early...

Well the base roster is always set in pre production, and DLC is chosen afterwards. So only if they didn't make bomberman an assist trophy, they would've been able to release him as a DLC fighter in the 2nd fighter's pass. Now we have to wait several years just to get bomberman.

That's just a fan rule. Nothing prevents Sakurai from promoting an AT, especially because DLC is chosen afterwards.

Assist trophies and 4th party characters are the only characters that can't be released as DLC. Until the next game.

Now what would happen if Bomberman wasn't an assist trophy and was challenger pack 1 instead of Joker/Ren, but Joker/Ren still got released later.

I know you're not going to actually debate but rather repeat the same two sentences over and over again so consider this my last reply.

Reminder that there is a Bomberman for Smash server, KuroiKamen would appreciate more people joining.

It is linked in the OP.

To bring up something new. So Bomberman is an assist trophy because Richter is playable as a trade off, if Bomberman wasn't an assist trophy, he still would've been able to be a DLC fighter later. Here's what they could've done instead, Konami should've had Yusaku as an assist trophy in the base game instead of Bomberman.

Bomberman is essentially the last character I've wanted to see in Smash since the pre-Brawl days. Him and Dixie would make me the most excited.

I don't know how good his chances are for an Assist Trophy promotion (and we can't be sure that will even happen), but the Bomberman IP is certainly in a better spot than it was in late 2015. Hell, I'd argue he would have fit into the Fighters Pass - a mid-tier Japanese series with lots of history that could use the publicity. He would be considered a frontrunner if it wasn't for the deconfirmation.

Maybe season 2 will be more favorable. I'm not getting my hopes up, but it would truly be fantastic if they made it happen.

Of course, his trailer needs to have him interact with Wario in a significant manner.

Bomberman being an assist trophy and Richter being playable have nothing to do with each other. Richter's playable because he's an easy echo to make (he's nearly identical to Simon in every way but appearance) and he represents a major turning point in the franchise (Symphony of the Night). If Richter wasn't playable, it wouldn't mean that they'd suddenly have enough time to make Bomberman playable instead.

Bomberman's an assist trophy because he's the main character of what is arguably Konami's third most prominent series (some could argue for Silent Hill or Contra), which (if Konami continues to get involved with Smash Bros.) could bode well for future games. As we've seen with Sega, there's no issue with including three separate series from the same company.

Well after the Japanese goverment introduced measures to crack down on pachinko parlors in preperation for the Olympics, Konami has come scrambling back to the console games. They're not in danger as they still have mobile games but even they know not to put all their eggs in that basket.

May bode well going forward.

Especially if the lootbox crackdown keeps going, videogame companies might have no choice but to actually make videogames for a living.

Man, that would be something.

The good Konami we know and love just may come back.

Japan cracking down on pachinko is a good thing since it will force them to go back to games more often. Maybe try a bigger and better game for Bomberman.

Despite Bomberman having been added to SSBU as an Assist Trophy, I've wanted to see Bomberman in Smash for a long time. My first experience with the Bomberman games was the SNES' Super Bomberman (ah the memories). The boss theme in that game slapped HARD. :2gud: Afterwards I got hooked with the N64 games (Bomberman 64, Hero, and 64 The 2nd Attack). The 2nd Attack's lore was pretty cool, and the elemental bombs were also a nice new feature in the series. I also played the GBA one, GC, Wii, and the latest I've played is Super Bomberman R which was a nice return to form. That being said, count me as a Bomberman supporter! :kirby: (Speaking of which, imagine Kirby's Bomberman costume! A-DO-RA-BLE)
