Wow, imagine being that petty.

As for who's left from Crash's past the only missing playable character is Fake Velo. Crash also doesn't have an alt resembling his Titans self while Coco and Crunch do so maybe he could be a seperate choice, with Jowls Aku Aku as his shield.
They could just add a Titan as a playable racer instead of giving Crash a Titans skin. The Ratcicle was that era's poster boy, Grimly was highly promoted during MOM, and surprisingly Fake Crash's sludge skin is a reference to Sludge; when Fake Crash wins a trophy, he uses 2 of Sludge's moves: the long arm shove and the puddle dodge.

Not to mention N. Brio having his MOM trait of claiming to have invented everything! (Except lite brite.)

I was thinking a Titan would be a great fit for the next Grand Prix, given its apocalypse theme. I'm not sure who they would add though. I always thought Spike would be the most likely for some reason.

Spike would work out pretty well TBH. If they're going post-apocalyptic then he'd fit in nicely. Stuff like Mad Max, Borderlands and such are big on spikes, so who better than the spiky Titan lol.

I'd personally choose Battler, but the MOM design. So lanky, yet so muscular and terrifying. Plus that theme encourages panic haha.

I hope that when Crash inevitably makes it into Smash that this legendary tune gets in whether it be the original, N. Sane remix, or a new remix:

Also, PLEASE make this Crashes intro.

Though, let's be honest, it'll probably be the level entry animation from 2 and 3, but those eyebrows...

Nitro-Fueled has done just about everything it could to satisfy me. The only other characters I'd like to see would be Bianca from Spyro and a character from Twinsanity like Madame Amberly or Rusty Walrus. As for Mr. Crumb I don't care about him in the slightest and would prefer just about any of the other popular requests over him.

Well, there is this now...

https://www.nintendo.com/consumer/network/en_na/network_status.jsp

And this.

https://nintendoeverything.com/game...listing-new-round-of-mystery-skus-for-switch/

So, with that, a Direct announcement may come next week. What are the odds that if it happens, Crash may be revealed as a playable in Smash Bros. Ultimate, as in the odds as seen by you guys?
I still think the best move would be to add Crash and Spyro at the same time, with Crash rounding off the first Fighters Pass and Spyro kicking off a second one. Will that end up happening? Definitely not, but I can't help but keep my hopes up.

I'd be completely okay with that. And for everyone who might be disappointed with the Fighter's Pass after that, don't worry--you don't have to buy it. Plus, there's extra fighters along the way.

Even if we don't get Crash for Smash on Thursday, at least we're bound to get the next Grand Prix info this week.
Yeah, though it looks like it's not today. Almost certain to be tomorrow though, since GP reveals happen at least one day before the Pit Stop reset/GP launch.

I can confirm there's no "early-adopter" Champion decal launch this time, that got fixed.

Posting in the threads of characters I want just for good luck on Thursday. Would be awesome if Crash was announced as the final character of Season 1 and then surprise announcement of Spyro as the first character of Season 2.

Just give me the Viscount acting all snooty. Yeah, I know Boom Bang is trash but the character deserves a chance to make it into Nitro-Fueled to revel in the gang in all his pompous glory.

That would be exciting, and the best way to add both these characters, but it looks like the 35min runtime is only long enough to go over the 5th fighter, plus all the extra content that comes with their update. I'm not confident they'd be willing to divulge their post Fighters Pass content, but I don't expect we'll see any more third party characters.

So, BetaM was right on the nose yet again, there's only one character this time, likely to take a break from the huge workload they just had for the holidays. Activision and Beenox didn't actually hide the code too much except for the WhoAmI racer that currently isn't attached to a GP.

Kind of a missed opportunity to not have Nina look like Furiosa, but that's just me. Curiously, they didn't show the next roadmap yet either.

Another couple things to note, Chick was briefly shown with what seems to be a new exotic skin in the vid (???), and the Golden Wumpa hunt addition was leaked in the code ahead of time.

Also, is that a frickin' Judge Dredd-looking Megamix robot Legendary skin??

It's someone lower-key, as expected.

Don't sweat it though, at least the next pass is bigger than last time, and CTR has some content coming still until the new Crash eventually gets revealed. Out of every Western third-party possibility, Crash is still going to be number one since it's huge in Japan.

Plus I think you'll all be pleased with who's in the next CTR datamine.

Sad truth: I never played any of the Crash games. However, just watching gameplay videos and knowing how popular he is and what he has to offer, I fully support his inclusion in Fighters Pack Vol. 2. I think it'd be legendary to get the Big 5 1990's video game superstars to highlight Smash: Mario, Sonic, Banjo-Kazooie, Crash and Spyro.

Great to have you on-board!

If you want to get into the series you should totally try to get the N. Sane Trilogy. It's fairly cheap ($40) and has the original three games in it. It's what got me addicted to Crash so I can assure you that you'll love it.

Honestly, I actually have no real interest in it. If that makes any sense. I can see what he does translating to Smash and being fun, but I've never really cared for platforming game. I'm more of an action, FPS, and fighter type of guy. And that's what I really enjoy about Smash: it can bring characters and fans from all genres together.

Hey all, I'm Ruffy. Just wanted to add my support for Crash as he's the other character I still need for Ultimate next to Geno. Tho the games are a little too hard for me (being a filthy casual) I still recognize his significance in gaming history and truly believe he needs to be in Smash next to Mario, MegaMan, Sonic and the like.

He seems like a no-brainer for Fighter's Pass 2, but we'll see what happens. Here's to hoping! <3

I'd definitely recommend CTR Nitro-Fueled if you want a less serious way to check out the Crash franchise. Getting good at that game is sort of difficult, but as of now, that game has a little piece of Crash's entire history in it, sans a few characters.

Hear me out.
What if the reason we have an extra slot in Volume 2 is so that we can get Crash and Spyro TOGETHER?
The two go together like peanut butter and jelly, and not just color-wise.
Personally, I think that'd be the best way to open up this next Fighter's Pass to generate maximum hype.

Either that or reveal Crash at E3, as that's where most people would agree Volume 1 peaked.
