Turns out, Heihachi was excluded from Smash 4 because of the difficulty that would come with translating Tekken's gameplay style into Smash.

Considering Nintendo is choosing the DLC themselves, they might look at upcoming Switch titles to promote. Luckily for Digimon fans, Digimon Survive is coming out on the Nintendo Switch next year.

Yes. Having Survive on the Switch is a huge advantage for Agumon when compared to the other Namco Bandai franchises.
Hum.
Some people don't even consider digimon a contender for Smash.
Its actualy very hard to even talk about Agumon on this board becouse of that.

Some people are stuck in the mindset that Heihachi and Lloyd are the only possible second NB reps.

Also, someone on the Krystal thread discovered there are 30 placeholder slots. If there's more DLC considered after the fighter pass is unveiled, things will be looking good.
30!? WTF
But i think they will not use all of this...

I don't think this mindset is the big problem here.
They just don't like Digimon.
Becouse of that they will put Agumon in the same level of trash all the time.

Yeah, at least 10 at most may get used, but we'll see what happens.

And I hate the general thread sometimes.
I almost left this forum the last time they called me a liar.

I never created a fake leak, and they realy think im the one wasting my time doing all of this.

A friend had to enter my Reddit acc to prove that i was not a liar.

Yeah. Some people are hostile to the idea of Digimon in Smash and frequently view it as a "joke" or "meme" pick.

When something happens that disproves them, people just move their goalposts. Some indies get the same treatment right now.

They are sad, strange little folks, and I pity them. :warioc:
Think about it:

Oficial Nintendo characters like Mike Jones don't even get a Spirit in the game.

But Shantae is a Spirit and Shovel Knight is a AT.

However, Agumon's chances are looking good. It's getting an upcoming game on the Switch, while Tales has not been on a Nintendo home console since Tales of Graces on the Wii (its one of only two Tales games to be on a Nintendo home console, the other being the original Tales of Phantasia on the Super Famicom) and Tekken only had one game on a Nintendo home console, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the Wii U (although a Tekken-like game using Pokemon characters, Pokken Tournament, was eventually released). Sakurai also had difficulties with adding Heihachi Mishima in the past.

Well i get why it seems attractive to have Digimon fighting with Pokemon in Smash, but they're NOT Videogamecharacters.

And no they aren't Anime Characters neither, they initially were Bandais answer to Tamagochi. The Anime and the Games came much later.

I would not really oppose Agumon getting in just by its design, its abbilities or its personality, but it would open up the doors for literally every Entertainmentfranchise no matter them originating from Video Games or not.

Let's not forget that Heihachi's voice actor Unshou Ishizuka died sometime after doing Incineroar for Smash, so it's possible that they passed over on Heihachi out of respect.

You are a little rong here my friend.
Tamagotchi AND Digimon are like brothers , bot are Bandai creations, bot are Virtual Pets.

Agumon was the mascot, together with Tyranomon, at the very first Digimon Tamagotchi in 1997.
And this was the first thing ever released for Digimon ever.

So yes , Agumon is a video game character as much as Game & Watch and all others.

The Anime was not the first , nor the second thing for Digimon.
Digimon games for PSX and Saturn were released before the Anime as well.

In Japan Digimon was NEVER a Anime thing.
The anime "completed" the franchise.
Digimon in Japan is a Virtual pet franchise, and aways was.

And in Japan Digimon is Big until today, with 2 new Digimon Tamagotchis to be released in 2019.
Alot of very good Digimon Games on the PS4.
And Digimon Survive on the Switch in 2019 as well.
Not even counting 2 Digimon games for 3DS that launched recently in Japan.

And just to make it a little bigger for you.
Sakurai created a Tamagotchi in 2005, inspired by Bandai Digimon Tamagotchi.

Sure, there's Tales of Vesperia coming to the Switch, but Digimon Survive is a completely new game while Vesperia is just a port (and it doesn't even have Lloyd Irving in it).
Let me ask you.
Do you think the inclusion of Agumon in Smash would help this new Eevee Tamagotchi?

I heard about it, it looks pretty cool...
I think it does show that Namco and Nintendo are on pretty good ground...
Then again, they're already developing Smash Ultimate... So there's already some good ground there

Good ground it is.
But to put a Pokémon on a Tamagotchi now?
It's like the first crossover of Pokémon and Digimon you know.

You were the one who made me aware of it a couple months ago...
It was very likely based on Digimon
So this makes Sakurai very familiar with Digimon.

And did you know about the Robot from "Vifam" that Sakurai bought?
Vifam is a robot anime series , and their games are developed by Bandai Namco as well.

The robot body aways remembered me of WarGreymon's.
Yeah it could be any other robot character but...
