It's kind of funny seeing big, burly tough guy Rodin standing around on such a happy, sunny place like Delfino Plaza.

This direct outta make future blog updates a little more interesting as well. I’m expecting atleast one new character and hopefully some stages and modes info.

If by more interesting you mean the stuff in the direct, then sure.

I’m not sure if any of the recent blog updates matter much when it comes to what’s getting announced on the direct. If it did then we could expect Ashley to be announced next since Wario was on Thursday and WarioWare Gold came out on Friday. But ya anyways....I don’t think there is really much of a pattern.

Today's fighter is definitely Samus. What many may not know is that today (August 6th) is actually Metroid's 32nd anniversary, and maybe Samus was coincidentally chosen for this day.

Coincidence or not, this made me smile. Happy Birthday Samus! :ultsamus::ultzss: *cue her signature single thumbs-up*

Samus added!

The timing of this direct is making me feel like we're gonna see Ashley, but who knows? Either that or Simon Belmont. If Isabelle is in, I think they're save her for an Animal Crossing Direct is they have a Switch title planned. Otherwise, we might see her on Wednesday. Who am I kidding? It could literally be anyone lmao.

It’s really hard to call this one. Seeing how I don’t really believe 99% of the leaks. I think this direct will debunk a ton of people and send them to smash leak oblivion. I’m looking forward to that.

Personally hope it debunks Simon Belmont.

It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if it did. I’m not a Castlevania fan. But Vergaben or however you spell it is doubling down on his Simon Belmont prediction. He even added Isabelle and claims Decidueyes not the Pokémon rep. Either way I’m ready for all these leaks to be debunked and for Sakurai to reveal the truth. #PleaseBeKRool #PleaseBeGeno

Isabelle seems...odd, but sadly not impossible. Another Animal Crossing fighter at all seems unnecessary. The villagers do a fine job of representing the series (sans fishing for some reason).

Ya, Isabelle would be better suited as an AT or an echo fighter at best.

Is it me or are these updates releasing later on? While I do expect some matter of consistency, it does leave me wondering if it is related to the Direct this week(tomorrow).

Well the blog just updated now that the Direct is over (Simon Belmont) is today's fighter apparently)!

Oh speaking of Konami getting two reps! I do hope we get a second rep for Namco (Lloyd Irving, Nightmare from Soul Calibur, Heihachi Mishima, Dig Dug, Klonoa, ect.)

And as well as one for Square Enix (Geno Or Crono From Chrono Trigger! And I doubt this is even slightly possible, Sora from Kingdom Hearts)!

So today is Richter apparently. Also it confirm his moves will work a little differently even if they're visually the same. That point was not really said during the direct at all.

Updated the OP! I gotta say that Richter was a pleasant surprise. I can't wait to try him out!

I predict Chrom and Dark Samus this week as well as music from either Donkey Kong or Fire Emblem.

I am just happy that I got Richter for my birthday. I did not even realize that they updated it on Sunday and figured that I would not even get a lame update like a capsule item or something. I got the best one, however. Which is great, because with a birthday in August, you are used to not getting anything vaguely special.

Why? Growing up, I always thought that an August birthday would be the best. Not only to make back to school seem nicer, but because all the other months have a major holiday (US holiday... and I know different religions celebrate different things, etc... but to me, it wasnt New Years, Valentines, St Patty, etc).

Also, nice to post after you again! I cannot wait until we disagree on something.
