Earthbound 2: Club Titiboo & Knuckles featuring Captain Falcon from the Super Smash Bros. series.

Also, yeah. Endings would probably end up as the subtitle if they released it here. Unless Itoi decides one day to make another Mother game, which in that case, lol.

When it comes to Simon's design, I'm pretty neutral about it. I feel like we could potentially get some sort of hybrid of the modern design and the classic design, but I'm not too sure. Thoughts?

I’m surprised we haven’t seen Duster as an Assist Trophy yet now that Kumatora and Boney are in Lucas’s Final Smash.

Have you guys seen this thread:

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/234547-super-smash-bros-ultimate/76776470

Smash 4 was datamined, revealing Bayonetta had been planned WITHIN 2 WEEKS OF THE BALLOT. Okay, so what?

WELL, I had messaged a friend earlier in JUNE, who had said Bayonetta had been planned WITHIN LESS THAN A MONTH, adding to his credibility of his sources. He had also revealed that Daisy was in the top 20
Bayonetta's data existing in 1.0.6 was known since late 2016, the information just wasn't well publicized for a long time for some reason, and it's difficult to source, so those that knew of it that weren't dataminers (such as myself) couldn't really spread the information about it well until the dataminers publicized it better themselves. As such, that information isn't any real proof of having credible intimate knowledge about actual Ballot placings.

Okay so I always take leaks with a grain of salt and encourage others to as well. That being said, if the 4 chan leak about a direct next week is true, I would be hyped!

So is there a list with any changes to the mechanics in Ultimate? I mean it could be in the thread but I’m not reading 2k pages of this ****.

Specifically, does anyone know if you can tech spikes on the ground in this game like in Smash 4? I hope not because that was bull****.
You can tech footstools now so you probably can still tech spikes.

These """New""" Super Mario games shouldn't exist, period.
There's nothing """new""" about them and they feel lazy as hell.
No, not really.

The first two NSMB games introduced new mechanics and ways to play in 2D Mario games. You've got the unique bosses, wall jumps, star coins, new powerups, 3D Graphics in the 2D games, the diverging paths, the really fun and underrated 2P battle mode, etc. in the DS NSMB, and the NSMBW went even farther and added things such as 4 Player Multiplayer, the bonus world at the end, even more powerups, the return of the Koopalings (this was back in 2009, before the Koopalings started to appear in everything ever), etc.

I'll admit that NSMB2 and NSMBU do much less to add to the formula established by the first two, but they still have unique and new features that are fun to play with.

NSMB2 had the Gold Flower and the Running Cannons, which were alright, and it also had 2P simultaneous Co-op, which was a nice touch.

NSMBU had the Baby Yoshis, Acorns, and the challenge mode. The challenge mode was always fun to play with, and I really enjoyed beating them, and getting new records on second tries.
NSMBU goes further with NSLU which had a unique "100 second speedrun" aspect to its levels, and the first return of Luigi Physics to 2D Mario since I believe Lost Levels.

I absolutely adore NSLU, it's such a fun game to play, and it's decently challenging as well.

There's nothing wrong with disliking the NSMB games, but I can't agree with saying that they're not unique, or don't deserve to exist. That just feels too extreme.

King as King K Rool
Doll as Geno
Soul as Skull Kid or Mimikyu or King Boo (IDK)
Hmm, I don’t remember Soul being in the original leak. I only remember King, Ponytail, Old Man, Warrior, Secretary, Mech, Doll, Folklore, Prime Ribs, and I feel like I’m forgetting one or two but I def don’t remember Soul.

Anyone got a link to that leak again?

The last one is Rhythm iirc. I don't remember Soul either.

Edit: Archer was in it too.

Well if this leak is right, it would have an actual new unique aesthetic to it, instead of that bland-as-hell NSMB aesthetic used for four straight games. It would be nice to get a new 2D Mario with its own new style.
