Cloud and the Heroes not having English VAs for Smash doesn't bother me as much as I thought it would. I would've appreciated having them, but it's no big deal if we're stuck with the Japanese VAs.

Actually, it bothers me more that Mewtwo doesn't speak like he does in Japan. It would've been really cool since we currently have only one Pokemon who talks like they did in the anime.

I don't like it. I want to understand what they're saying.

Ah, now I remember why I deleted my last account.

Anyways, I’d still see Ryu as a safer bet than Reimu for the last charcater. A Touhou character would just seem so strange I guess.
Honestly I think that’s what the issue is for me as well.

Sure, a leaker says it’s happening. But this reminds me of the Granblue leak with Hitagi, with a character coming in from a series most people don’t know well. It’s just...jarring, and would be especially crazy if this originally the “last” Smash character.

It may all end up true and that’s well and good. But I’m simply not willing to assume such until we know more.

Learning a snippet of a new language wouldn't kill you, y'know.

Ryu/Ken have English VAs and still say their move names in their original language.

If you're worried about it being a grand finale, I don't think Ryu Hayabusa fits that either tbh.

I still think the best "grand finale" would be a Dark Souls character, maybe even DoomSlayer. But because there's more DLC coming, I don't think he's concerned with there being a "grand finale".

No character really makes for a grand finale because everyone has different wants and priorities

Anyways, I also agree that this seems a bit like the katalina stuff, but it seems a bit more plausible? Idk

Yes, I know that. But they still do things like their taunts in english.

Looking deeper, it doesn't bother me in english as Hero doesn't even do anything other than grunt unless you set the language to japanese. But Cloud, his taunts, victory animations, when his limit gauge fills, he says things that aren't move names. I want to know what he's saying without having to learn Japanese.

crash: crushed
reimu: roasted
baboom: by god he's invincible
I mean. The biggest hurdle for him getting in is the fact that he doesn’t exist.

Grookey’s ACTUAL final evolutions? Now she has a chance.

So word is on the street Reimu is out of the running for spot as DLC fighter 5 huh?

Guess its only Hayabusa left that has a shot unless future info states otherwise that bumps him off.
And once Hayabusa drops away (because I’m almost certain he’s not in till post pass) then we’ll be back to square one.

Gonna be honest. Yall trippin if you think reimu will be in. Vast majority of touhou "fans" have more time spent looking up touhou tags on random boorus than playing the games. Any """leak""" with reimu on it should be immediately discredited.

Reimu leak might not be real?!

*Pretends to be shocked

Yeah, not really a huge surprise that Reimu might not be the final character. Obviously this didn't kill her chances or anything, but she'd be a very...weird pick.
Yeah. I never put much stock in her either.

Ok. Can someone tell me what Ryu Hayabusa actually has going for him in the leak circle?

This is bait of the lowest quality, Not to mention extremely elitist by implying certain people aren't fans just because they like a different aspect of the franchise than others, which is based on nothing but pure assumption on your part, mind you. Seriously, get your gatekeeping "not real fans" out of here. Good thing the ignore function exists.

Of course she wouldn't be the final character, there's post pass DLC

"I don't like this thing so people must only like it for the porn".
It's like, get some new material, I've heard this same exact **** being said about Fate and Fire Emblem a lot already.

But how else can I project my views towards people who like/want something that I don't?

Honestly, if he was just contacting remixed for her NOW then she would not be character 5. Grant Kirkhope said Nintendo contacted him in January when Banjo released in September. At the very least, she would be an “early next year” character. At most, she’d be around June or July.

Tbf the first rumour in her favour was in November 2018 so that doesn't mean much. Not that it matters anymore

The original leak was from November I believe, so it wouldn't be unreasonable

Before it goes any further, can we just drop these passive-aggressive posts toward people okay with Reimu and people who don't like Reimu?

Really not in the mood for this back-and-forth today.

He has like five lines and translations for all of them are on the wiki. You don't need to learn a whole language for looking up to them.

Quite the generalization you're making about a fanbase for a franchise that is a staple in its genre and has a reputation for its difficulty. Have some respect.

While I agree with your point(Touhou being really obscure makes it a weird pick) I definitely disagree with the elitism and anger from this post.

It’s still not the same.

Look. I get that it’s not a big deal. But when modders can do it with archive audio... I feel like nintendo has no excuse. Sure, they’d still have to pay the guy, but not nearly as much as if they actually had him come in and do new lines.

Heck. I’d probably even pay extra for an English dub of cloud’s voice.

I find it funny how people still go "absolutely 0% chance". Like... have you even looked at Smash Ultimate? We got a damn Sans costume which looks as good as a proper character. Not to mention Shovel Knight is an Assist Trophy. And those are western indies to boot.
And on the fighter's side we got not only Snake back, but also Simon with a Richter clone and a pretty big music selection, despite Konami being, well... Konami. Same goes for Cloud and not only one, but four different DQ heroes, despite S-E being known for being quite stingy. They also collaborated with Microsoft for Banjo, a direct rival in the console market.

So many people in the past claimed that "*character* is impossible", only to get proven wrong later. You'd think at one point they'd finally learn, yet history keeps repeating itself over and over again. Never count your chickens before they hatch, especially with unpredictable Ultimate has been.

Apparently no-one has posted the Little Town Hero ost on Soundcloud yet. So, I did!(kinda, just a few of the battle themes for now, maybe I'll post more later)

Just want to say, the OST is really banging. The game itself..thou....(spoiler alert, it's garbage)
