I believe everything I mentioned (with the exception of the wing ironically) is from FFVII - given most or all of the magic is Safer Sephiroth. If only FFVII is allowed: sacrifice the wing/multi-jumps and either meteor or shadow flare. It is more likely of course they'd just shorten the sword and make him a quick swordboi, but that'd be disappointing for me - likely wouldn't stop me from playing him and enjoying it admittedly. Preferable however for him to have some massive weakness(es) (maybe being really light and having just garbage up special) in exchange for magic and not gimping his speed. If they'd make him slow, let it be the 'lag' as others have mentioned rather than startup - may it have a bounce effect on block which leaves him wide open if needs be. If he manages to make it, a travesty it would be to implement him in any generic way.

Yeah, I'm on that note too.
I don't believe any leakers at this point.
I posted that for funsies, and the idea of how development of other characters may be going along

I said that because I wasn't sure which were you basing on.
Also, at the very beginning of this thread, there was a dude who posted an extensive look at his/her ideas for a moveset, and used KHII footage to show the moves in action.
But I got you dude

EDIT: Uhhhh......
Did anyone see this?

Totally understandable as every move I mentioned is also in KH. (except pale horse lol). Well, I put no faith in that leak but would be ecstatic if it turned out to be true. Know nothing of monster hunter, but none of the others would disappoint me and of course: Sephiroth.

Edit: Birth of a God would be hype.

Are you particularly excited for any of the other characters as well or just the glimmer of hope for Sephiroth? Personally, of the rest, I'd be most excited for Sans - unpopular opinion I know: really think he'd fit well in smash. Likely wouldn't play him much, but his existence in the game would be cool to me. Never played Banjo and Kazooie but I know many would be celebrating at that announcement so I'd be happy for them. Really though, with Joker's announcement, I lost any right to complain about future choices. Would drop Joker hype in an instant for Seph (Or Hazama but no chance of that lol) but I'm happy regardless. Really just hoping for whatever characters would make the most players hyped so more people play and enjoy the game.

I'm wishing really hard for that leak to be true. You have no idea. XD
I was thinking about that leak actually and I realized something.

So you know how Duck Hunt and Mii Swordsman can corrupt your save data like Pirahna Plant, and because of that people were thinking that Duck Hunt was being used as a base for a DLC fighter because Pirahna Plant had leftover data from Bowser Jr.?

Well, there's another fighter that can corrupt your save data (according to some reports) and that's Pikachu being used online. Now, I don't know that much about Monster Hunter, but just from a cursory glance at the character Feylin, they're both small, primarily quadrupedal mammals which can also stand on their hind legs. If I was a game designer trying to find a quick base for a skeleton to make Feylin off of, Pikachu would be a fairly logical choice.

And if Feylin and Banjo get in, well...
Sephiroth's chances will be looking real nice.

You people are too good at giving me hope. As much as I'll hope to my heart's future discontent; even if Feylin gets announced I won't place much more faith in the leak: always the chance only one character is known or correctly guessed. If they both get in though...as someone else mentioned: if B&K were to be announced it would be at E3 given Microsoft and Nintendo's presence there. So that would be the earliest any faith could be had (given of course a favorable prior announcement with Feylin).

Regardless, atm my policy with leaks is to discuss with hope while pretending every leaked character is an official de-confirm as to not be too disappointed (or ecstatic if the leak contains characters considered by me to be garbage).

I'm excited for basically every single character there, although MH is not a series I'm super familiar with. I love the little cat though. X3
But Seph being there is definitely what hypes me up more than anything.

Now that is VERY interesting to know. Hoping it comes to fruition!

Hahahahaha
I suggest everyone to keep their expectations tame as always.
And Banjo's chances are looking extremely good. Microsoft's recent approximation and teases are insanely hyping people up.

So....about the direct today guys. FFIX comes out today but FFVII doesn't??? What's more, with us apparently getting more about Joker before April, there's high speculation of a Smash direct. The same month that FFVII finally comes to the Switch.......hm. If you do the math there......
I would hope that's the case... but I wouldn't get my hopes up for it happening though.

Another piece of fanart I'd want to see happen if Sephiroth gets in is another one of :ultbowser::ultbowserjr::ultlarry::ultroy2::ultwendy::ultiggy::ultmorton::ultlemmy::ultludwig::ultganondorf::ultkrool::ultpiranha::ultridley::ultdarksamus:and:ultwolf: with Sephiroth at a pub raising their mugs (Chocolate milk for Bowser Jr. and the Koopalings) all celebrating their returns and inclusions to Ultimate while other villains (Black Knight, Black Shadow, Porky Minch, Skull Kid, etc.) are all watching sadly outside through a window on the verge of tears having not made the cut.
You know Porky isn't out of the running yet right? He still has a chance.

Wow, Sony copying strikes again.
I'll be happy for news on the Remake.
But a part of me will be sad bc I was really hoping for a reunveiling of the game on a Nintendo Direct. :(
It would be groundbreaking, fitting and would show which other platform the game would be in.

Concert happening just a few days before E3. Same place and time and everything like it was for KH3. KH3 had two of these, one after 2 years of hiatus and one before the game released, in which i believe Nomura attended even. Nomura and Kitase said 7 and long awaited for 2019 last year… This is it, they are gonna start snowballing marketing in June, about frigging time!

Watch "brave" be Sephiroth for Smash Bros, since he was considered a "Hero" in the game before he went mad + Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be the highlight of SE's E3, perfect timming for marketing FF7 in general + mii costumes could be gunner = barret, brawler = tifa, zack = sword fighter, it just fits perfectly for miis (and obviously they could bring back geno, as we saw both new and returning sega miis with joker). A spirit board theme would be easy to get as well, and the remaining music we always wondered and were surprised were missing is actually coming with Sephiroth. A new stage? Maybe Nibelheim in flames… altho he has many other potential stages he could come with.

That would be our final chance to finally get the content FF7 desperately needs.

Square announced its E3 with this tweet.
That green on the left painting is unmistakable.
FFVII is coming to E3.

https://twitter.com/SquareEnix?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author

There is no better time for Sephiroth to be announced!
Every Erdrick has fallen apart, with only the words of leakers left to support it, alongside the circumstancial evidence that Brave is Erdrick's title.
Joker, alongside Arsene and PP show that codenames aren't necessarily direct references, and usually make sense once you know the character per se.
And with the Mii Costume theory being a thing that makes a ton of sense, and us having still no Smash 4 Mii Costumes returning, a S-E rep as DLC is basically confirmed
This could be Sephiroth's time to be in Smash!!

I'm seriously thinking that, if SE rep is coming at E3, it would have to be no other than Sephiroth (or Sora). Final Fantasy VII Remake taking the spotlight would TOTALLY overshadow another rep like a DQ one. With DQ not being that successfull worldwide but mostly in Japan, and on the other hand FFVII being the most controversial and successful SE game SE has ever made to this day, they would definitely feel more inclined in marketing whatever is taking the spotlight now I feel. Yes they are making a movie of DQ and doing a bunch of stuff for it, but not even a smash character would get them that much more success to the DQ games, they have been trying for years and years now. I think the smartest thing for them would be to put more FF7 content, specially after that lack of music and spirits, it's almost suspicious and I doubt very much that they are being stingy about it, when Sakurai (or Reggie I think it was) said themselves that they have never had issues getting the characters they've gotten so far. I dunno… If we are getting Erdrick instead, then I think it won't be at E3, because that would totally go against DQ with FF7R taking such a huge spotlight, lol. If it's erdrick, then they will definitely not reveal him at E3, unless they are dumb. This is why, If I want a SE rep to be announced soon, i have more hopes for Sephiroth. If nothing SE related, then Banjo, lol.

So there was a new trailer for FFVII remake released that showed Sephiroth here a couple of days ago. Anybody think his chances of getting into Smash are improved by the good sales of the FFVII remaster port on Switch and the increased visibility with the FFVII remake coming to E3 this year as a big part of Sony's presentation?

tbh putting him in smash now would be an insta win for both nintendo and square enix. Best timming possible ever

That's what I'm thinking. The stars have basically aligned for this character. I feel like I can confidently say there will NEVER be a better time to include this character.

If there is a better time, it's slim because it would basically require the remake to come out at the same time as another fighter pass or a new Smash game (which also happens to contain Cloud). Our time is now!

Honestly Sephiroth seems inevitable to me. It all just fits too well. Especially with the complete lack of FF content in base. Leakers aside, I think he's by far the most likely square rep.

If there happened to be a dual reveal in E3 I wouldn't be surprised at all if one of them was Microsoft (Banjo) and a Square Enix one (Hopefully Sephiroth), since those 2 conferences will have the biggest pressence this time around. It would make one hell of an E3 for sure …
