Is it just me, or is the quality of those ripped spirit art darker than usual?

I faced the Richard fight this afternoon. As soon as I saw him in World of Light, I immediately wanted him, got him, and instantly leveled up him to Lvl. 100.

At this point, it does not look like there will be any songs from the game, which is a big letdown, considering that even Goku's game got musical representation. :(
It is darker, actually! I've noticed a lot of spirits, if not all, are darker than the actual art. Unsure why.

Nice job getting Richard!

Yeah, I was pretty let down by that, as well, considering some songs could be remixed pretty well. I guess none of the composers working on this were inspired by this game. :< Wish there was a bit more music variety in general, but I'm not all around dissatisfied.

Yeah, I imagine the darkened artwork of almost every Spirit was simply a side effect of Nintendo having to sort of 'refresh' the artwork of such obscure IPs. Nice getting Prince Richard, BTW!

Say, have you gotten the Spirits of Prince Sable and his various forms, and does Prince Sable appear in WoL? Also, semi-unrelated question, but is the title of Prince Sable's game translated to English, or does Smash Ultimate keep the JP title?

Speaking of music, I was at least hoping for a Game Boy medley theme (where this game's main theme was included), like how there was a Famicom Medley theme...

I know this is SUPER late, but I just got the game! So the series name is listed as Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru. And the Frog and Snake spirit are in Spirits Mode, but I haven't seen normal Sable yet.

And a gameboy medley theme would be awesome, the main theme would fit right into a medley like that.

Oh, don't worry! At least someone responded!

By the way, I may as well let you (and everyone else, for that matter) know this now... it seems that the Spirit of Prince Sable can ONLY be acquired by enhancing the Spirit of his Frog and Snake forms (which appear as a sort of 2-in-1 Spirit, no less).

Thanks for letting me know! I figured he'd only be upgradeable from the Frog and Snake spirit, but wasn't sure. :]

Just today I got Sable’s Spirit. I left the Frog and Snake Spirit in the gym yesterday and forgot about it, so now I got our boy (also enhanced Ray and Donbe & Hikari, and maxed out Geno)
That's great! I haven't really been using my gyms, lol. I should level up more of my spirits!

I love the thought of adding more retro characters into Smash. Count me in!
The transformation mechanic in the game would make an interesting fighter in Smash Bros.
I also love the thought of Richard being a possible echo fighter for Prince Sablé.

So a Link's Awakening remake is in development, which means Prince Richard could likely return again, with a new musical composition of Richard's Villa.

You think this remake will encourage the development of a 3D remake of For the Frog the Bell Tolls?

I hope so! Richard has to be in the remake (Kanalet Castle was shown, and there was a bell marking on it? Not sure if that's absolute, but the bell is awfully suspicious...), and with that comes exposure to the character, and people getting curious in the game he is from.

I'd suspect something like an Oracle game remake is more likely, but it'd be really cool if they decided to remake Ftftbt instead! Excited to see whatever Ftftbt content can come from this, anyway.

If there is anyone that wants to take over the support thread of this character, please let me know.

I am planning my departure from the speculation scene for good in pursuit of accomplishing my dream job and goal.

I am leaving sometime in late March or early April.

I think Nebelung Nebelung would suit the thread owner role the best IMO.

It's too bad to see you go, but I wish you good luck with your goals! It's always great to follow one's dreams.

That is somber to hear, Bluepikmin11! But it is also very nice to hear that you have a clear goal ahead of you that you wish to focus on. I wish you the best!

That is very humbling to hear, also! I'm unsure if I'm qualified for the position, and haven't been particularly active on Smashboards as a whole, but if no one else wishes to take up the mantle I would be happy to take over to the best of my ability.

Just DM the mods, and they'll help you become the thread owner. Being a thread owner won't be hard, especially with Smashboards being quiet these days.

Okay! Do you know which moderator I should contact in particular?

What's his final smash gonna be like?
I don't work on the game, so I don't know! Hopefully it won't be something boring like the Prince slashing with his sword, though. I'd like it to be something from the game, like the giant robot from the final boss fight, as opposed to something more original to Smash.

I do feel like a lot of the options for his final smash is him calling upon someone else to do the work for him, though... which is kind of fitting, if contradictory to his character development!

Hello! Sorry for the double post, but it's been about a month, so I figure it is okay!

Anyway, a friend and I recently made a For the Frog the Bell Tolls Discord! :) It's kinda small and isn't getting much traction, but I figure it could be a good place to bring together fans of the game. Plus, with Link's Awakening coming out, there's at least some upcoming stuff to chat about!

I figure I can also plug my Sable4Smash twitter account, which I try to keep up on! I mostly reblog fanart there but I like to post some original stuff, too.

I am going to leave tonight, so I figured I would post here one last time.

Thank you smashkirby smashkirby Nebelung Nebelung GoodGrief741 GoodGrief741 Lisbon Mapping Lisbon Mapping for frequently discussing For the Frog the Bell Tolls, developments with FTFTBT's fanbase, and Sable's moveset potential with me.

I am so glad that I managed to give FTFTBT a new set of fans over the years from Smash 4 to Smash Ultimate speculation.

I dearly hope that Intelligent Systems revives the IP one day. I want to see the fanbase for this franchise grow bigger.

You guys take care. Keep loving Sable and For the Frog the Bell Tolls for me.

Well, it's been nice knowing you, BluePikmin11 BluePikmin11 . I really want to thank you for making the Prince Sable for Smash thread. Your thread, combined with the little prince himself appearing (in physical form, no less!) in Smash really rekindled my love for the little guy. Good luck to you and everything you do from here on out!
