There is also a rumor going around that Erdrick (I think that's his name?) from Dragon Quest is rumored to be in. That kind of makes me nervous because I feel like that would lower Lloyd's chances, provided if the rumor is true of course.
I wouldn't worry, simply because the people repeating his name are the same people that had no idea about Joker. I don't think there is anyone in the SE leaked names list that we should currently worry about, since there is really nothing solid about any of them. I still remain super hopeful about Lloyd, it's probably the "makes most sense" out of all of the possible remaining 4 DLC characters to be announced.

So this board is kind of dead, might as well revive it. So possible DLC character files have been datamined unlike Smash 4. They're nicknames instead. Like Jack is referring to Joker and Plant is Piranha Plant. Then we have Brave who's speculated to be Erdrick or possibly Yuri Lowell.

There's also a direct rumored on the 10th.

I'm not sure why but when I hear about these leaks it just makes me nervous about Lloyd's chances. But I'm not giving up just yet.

Well Insiders are hearing Lloyd(and Yuri but less often), so there's still hope.

So everyone is kind of freaking out about the current DLC rumor line up and well It's safe to safe for me that it's definitely on the fake side now. Besides the somehow this person knows these very specific details about why these characters were added and their release date which is a major point against this rumor.

It's strongest point was P5R. Well that's been shot down thanks to MysticDistance(the first insider to mention Lloyd as DLC BTW) saying that P5R was a thing as far back as July 31st 2017.

To be fair, MysticDistance only discovered the domain, and proceeded to speculate on what it could be.
I remember when he said P5R was definitely a Switch thing but then closed his twitter for a while because it didn't turn out that way. He does get some stuff right but it seems mostly based on speculation (Also back when he said Lloyd could be DLC, he said Isaac and Geno were playable in the base game).

I'm still only holding on to the fact Hitagi and PolarPanda heard about Lloyd. But even then, it could all be a red herring.

Friendly reminder that whoever the "brave" or SE character is, means nothing negative for Lloyd, we still have more unrevealed DLC characters on the way and he still has a chance.

Who knows? :3
Hmm... I'm quite curious and want to ask: what if there was a situation where Sakurai couldn't decide to add Lloyd or Yuri and just decided to add both of them in as original characters with their own movesets and no echo situation? Of course, I don't imagine that would be likely, but I feel it would satisfy both worlds.

In addition, I believe this is my first time posting here, so I thought I'd stop on by and say hi. :o

I really hope Lloyd is DLC. Would be really cool to play as him in the game, especially since he wields two swords, unlike any other character.

Does Yuri know Dhaos Corridor in this hypothetical dream situation?

Not if the brave character turn out to be Yuri (a "Brave Vesperia member"). If Yuri gets in, it's the definitive end for Lloyd, even for the future Smash games. When whe know that not even Shadow managed to become an echo, it's really hard to imagine two unique third party characters who are from the same serie, and in top of that, not even in the base roster but DLCs.
Yuri is a big Game Over for Lloyd in my book.

If Yuri is in then Lloyd's mii costume has to be back with him at least.

Lloyd's earnestness translates easily in smash. Yuri's independent streak means quite a bit less without an establishment to go against. I think that's part of why Sakuri said Lloyd was the only real choice.

Lloyd's game also did amazingly well in the West. He has strong worldwide appeal. This makes him a fairly good character to look at. Yeah, his personality probably played a role too. Sometimes that's all you need to be interested in a character. Though clearly just personalty isn't why he would act like there was no other choice(which is also what he said about Cloud). He seems to view both of them as the poster boys of their series. Though unlike Cloud, I don't think Lloyd's in the greatest position as is. Namco-Bandai is a part of the main development team so they probably have made their view clear of why they think would make a great Tales of choice. A Mii Fighter costume is of course a lot easier to add in comparison to a full-out fighter.

So Tales of Vesperia HD is out now. I'm personally waiting until a price drop or I somehow get it in one of those Twitter contests. That said though hopefully we'll see many other older games ported to Switch including the unlocalized games like Destiny R Director's Cut, Destiny 2 , Eternia, and Rebirth etc.
