Interesting.

I wonder if this could mean that a major leak is coming soon. (Maybe not from Verge or Sabi, but possibly another source entirely?)
I doubt it. Again, Nintendo has quintupled up on leakers since E3 and anybody dumb enough to full on leak 5 or anything else would more than likely have their ass converted into a sleeping bag by Nintendo. For example, if Cacomallow winds up being true, they're going to find the guy, point blank.

personally leaning towards palettes of the other ToS party members

If Bamco won't allow Sakurai and the team Lloyd to have his hair recolored, we may see all the recolors used in Tales of Versus and along with new ones made for smash ultimate.

Yeah it seems like the most natural thing would be colors that reference other party members. Although, I'm sure they could also throw in some of his classic costumes, especially if they don't want to change up his hair color or anything.

But I'd definitely like to see in the style of Joker and Shulk, where his clothes and hair reference the party members in full. Mostly because a Colette palette would be pretty funny. Or with bright red hair and a hot pink outfit for Zelos.

Tales of is renowned for its many costume that the characters can unlock, and we all know Sakurai loves to focus on details and references to please the fans.
Even if we all agree that Sakurai is too shy about the number of costumes the characters in the base roster could have, I think it's a different story for the DLC, especially for the DLC.

I mean, Sakurai went full fanservice by implanting new skins and voice clips for the heroes, wich is certainly more time-consuming to develop than simple costumes. DLC are special cases, since we actually buy them and that the developing team are more focused on characters since the game is already finished, polished and released.

So yeah, even if it's not sure, we still can expect Lloyd having a few (or eight) of his alternate costumes from the Tales of games.

So 18 new Switch SKUs were leaked on GameStop, which means a direct is soon. Hopefully one of them is a Tales game since the NoA ambassador said Tales news was coming.

GOOD MOOOOOOOORNING /v/! Just wanted to remind you that we’re another day closer to Floyd Irving (yes, THE Flop Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia) getting confirmed in Smash Ultimate! Make sure to save your tears for the upcoming Fighter Pass when Floyd tempests into the spotlight!


>H-HAH! KOS-MOS HAS BEEN LEAKED BY JOHN GAMEXPLAIN! NINTENDO TOOK DOWN THE MOD WITH KOS-MOS! KOS-MOS BTFOS FLOYD!
“No!”
Yikes! That’s a large assumption. How can one “questionable” prediction instantly invalidate a history of success? Unlike your “John Gamexplain” KOS-MORONS, Floyd has earned Sakurai’s support. Ever heard of the interview where Sakurai said it would have to be him, and how the Tales team begged him to put Floyd in at some point? And while you’re busy obsessing over a fake mod takedown, care to explain how Floyd got a Mii costume in smash 4, exactly like King K. Rool? Seems a bit suspicious if you ask me, but feel free to continue your denial. Your tears of disappointment will be all the more sweeter!



Our Floyd, who art in Tower of Salvation, hallowed be thy name; thy Smash invitation come; thy will be done; on Battlefield as it is in Aselia. Give us this day our daily gel. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into Devil’s Arms; but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

If Lloyd gets in what would be his up B? Would it be a good recovery or bad?

Well, Lloyd is basically just a generic swordsman, so i would try looking into Marth's or Mii Swordfighter's Up-Special for reference.
I guess Heihachi is a generic martial arts guy.

Might as well make him a clone of Ryu.

See how stupid that mindset works?


Don't do it for Lloyd.

Lloyd would have a bunch of really cool moves possibly for up B.

I'm going to assume Rising Falcon or Tempest for it most likely.

For me Tempest seems like a Nair, so I guess Rising Falcon.
Rising Falcon seems to work similar to Cross Chop, am I right?

I've been wracking my brain with ideas for a Lloyd Irving Classic Mode Route.
  1. Characters who use more than one weapon, but I don't think there are enough of these. Ganon is a boss who fits this, but the only dual wielding playables are the Pits.
  2. Swords, but that's Roy. While Banjo & Kazooie were basically Icies 2, there's at least some difference.
  3. Angels, but there's only three relevant angelic characters. Also kinda steps on Bayo's toes as well as Bayonetta's.
  4. The 8 elements from Symphonia, but then the Bonus game interferes.
  5. Party members, but that's the Spirit Board Lloyd would come with.
  6. Characters who cook, but food is already a theme for Kirby's route.
  7. The progression of Symphonia, but how to factor that in would be brutal.
  8. References to other Tales games, which is basically what Joker did. Maybe?
  9. Fire & Ice, referencing the Material Blades, but I don't think there are enough natural ice users. Icies, Hero, Giga Bowser...
I dunno, I have no clue. With everybody else there's a clear picture in my head but I can't think of anything for Lloyd.

If I'm correct, in Symphonia you could link normals to specials.
What if Lloyd gets an attack cancel mechanic similar to Terry? Would it be broken?

In theory. But its always possible to design it in a way that keeps it from being too much.

And Lloyd has a Compound EX Skill "Sky Attack" in Symphonia that allows him to use, e.g. Rising Falcon after Omega Tempest. Instead of using Rising Falcon and having him jump first then charge, he skips the first half of the animation and will do the attack instantly.

Made some alts for Lloyd based on the Symphonia party members. I wonder how they would go about it if they were to use his party members, as there are only 8 available slots.

These are really good! I’m particularly fond of the Colette and Kratos alts, good job!

So the next reveal is coming Thursday, here’s hoping our boy doesn’t get costume’d at the least.

I think there's legitimate hope for him tomorrow. Just gotta hope he doesn't show up in the Mii Costume reveals.

If it's not Lloyd, I'm guessing it's 2B which will likely have the Chocobo and Geno costumes along with Nier costumes(and maybe another Square IP like a Chrono outfit).
