Things may seem grim, but don't really give up.

I will say this, I am kind of seeing some Black Knight fans be more vocal as of late. Mostly for the idea of him being a fighter. But it's not just for him, but for other AT's.

On a related note, how many of you would want some Tellius games remade? That would be a nice thing for the Switch.



That's really cool, he looks awesome in action.

I also learned today that the Nintendo president said that he wants more DLC for existing big games. Obviously Smash isn't an existing game yet, but if Nintendo are pushing for more DLC with big name games it might give a little hope for the AT characters (Shadow, BK, ect) to be included at some point down the line as some DLC. That's what I'm telling myself anyway.
Actually, this is not too far off. Just that people need to be more vocal if they want to make this happen.

I would absolutely love Tellius remakes. They're by far the best games in the series.

I would obviously love Tellius remakes, but I'm also unsure how much potential there is for improvement. Portability would be great, redone battle scenes and cutscenes with better voice acting as well, and then there are small things like adding actual supports to RD, but beyond that I don't think there's that much they could do, in fact I'd be cautious about some of the changes they'd potentially make, in a lot of ways I wouldn't want the games to become more like modern FE. I guess the big bonus would be being able to even get your hands on the games for a reasonable price at all, but I don't see why that couldn't just happen without fully fledged remakes, Nintendo just have to pick up their slack with their Online service.

Regardless I think we'll have to wait a bit, as I'm almost certain the next remake will be The Binding Blade, just so people in the west can finally experience Roy's game, and maybe that'll transition into a remake of The Blazing Blade too.

I agree, I'd want to see a remaster before we got a remake. Just update the graphics a bit and put it on the Switch.

I'm still baffled as to why they haven't rereleased the Tellius games, like, at all. They damn well know Ike and Micaiah are popular enough that their faces can sell their games now when they couldn't a decade ago. It's like Intelligent Systems doesn't care about selling games so long as they can bank off their characters.

Annoys me because I'm dying to play the Tellius duology legitimately as I'm really not much of an emulator guy.

The Black Knight thread in the assist alliance discord is trying to start a Black Knight campaign. Even if assists can't get in this time, he'll need help next game. So calling all Black Knight fans!

Thanks for supporting such an awesome character! Unfortunately this place has been 100% dead ever since Black Knight was shown as an assist trophy. If you want to really discuss him I reccomend his channel in the assist alliance discord. That place is surprisingly active. I can send you an invite if you want!

Alright then I guess.

Black Knight is in the image of the newest Octopath Traveler spirit event alongside with other Nintendo fighters which are already playable. Maybe a sign?

I was just about to post this. Bonus echo perhaps? This is definitely very strange. It makes me wonder if maybe he was planned to be a bonus echo and released by now but corona delays stopped it and they didn't change the art.

My guess is that since each spirit comes in pairs, they saw no need to limit themselves to just playable characters to represent one member of the pair. I doubt it means anything.

I think it means nothing tbh. More likely than not that the Spirit character is gonna have the Black Knight assist trophy being involved. Also if any assist is ever to be promoted it's gonna be Waluigi. No arguments there.
