Sabi says the Crash leak comes from a "notorious source". So he's not confirmed whatsoever. Basically the leaker only had Mii costume info which a bunch of other people apparently had and nothing else. Sabi is also apparently doubly confident in Hayabusa being the newcomer. Because multiple people have heard about him being in. Though not the main Smash leaker VR Plant (and by extension Vergeben) as of yet.With Crash basically confirmed, I can fully rally behind Scorpion. Really hating this potential waiting game tho. I need some Scorpion leaks.
Its something. I actually contacted an administrator to be new op. I have to wait for a response from SuperDoom tho.So if we really are looking for a new OP or whatnot to create a new front page for this thread, I have made a WIP draft of what I would have it as. It should be saved for anyone to leave messages, so if you have anything you want me to add, you can let me know. I probably won't be writing any more on that either today or tomorrow, seeing that I have a lot of work to catch up today and tomorrow I will not be at home for the day, as well as I have to go to work.
Honestly, while Mortal Kombat is in fact one of them, it is not the last. Tekken would have something to say about that.With both Street Fighter and Fetal Furry/King of Fighters, two cultural giants present in Smash, it'd be a low key tragedy if Scorpion is never in Smash. I really feel like Mortal Kombat is the last cultural significant fighting game that will complete the captcha.
Because lets pretend a Tekken character isn't way more likely to get representation than MK.Honestly, while Mortal Kombat is in fact one of them, it is not the last. Tekken would have something to say about that.
While MK is the last significant 2D fighter, it can be argued that it has less impact than Tekken. Yes, MK is revolutionairy with video game violence, and gore, but that's it. Tekken on the other hand also revolutionated 3D fighting game and it's complexity during the mid 90's. While I do love Scorpion, and I really want Scorpion, I do as well really want Heihachi, and the only reason I wanted to state anything was because there is no way it can be possible to only say MK is being the "last" cultural significant fighting game franchise left in Smash.
Whaaaaaaaaat?I feel Tekken is anonymous as a cultural fighter but is more specifically cultural as far as the tournament scene. I can't help but feel majority of Tekken's characters fail at household names while basically its only the female characters that represent it these days.
At this point I just want the original trilogy on SNES Online.
That's one of the incredible obstacles Scorpion has to face. His fan demand is rising so Scorpion will get in on sheer fan demand.However ... How would Mortal Kombat come to Smash if it's banned in Japan?
I think that's the ultimate shame really, because Scorpion would be pretty epic as a playable character.
I read them. Both arguments were calm but I think you slipped into aggression and went wrong with some of your wordings. Had you stated Scorpion is just as iconic as etc, your argument could have been more agreeable.Scorpion should have been in over Terry. More unique and from a lot more well-known franchise. I tried to explain that to the children in the Newcomer Speculation thread and they just threw insults at me. Even Sakurai acknowledged that SNK is very obscure in the Direct Today.
Still excited to play Terry but Scorpion would likely have had a more unique moveset. BTW, I have MK10. I loved it. Best Mortal Kombat game I have played since the original trilogy.
Thought people got over this? The mechanics of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat are way too different.http://www.nintendolife.com/news/20...r_character_in_mortal_kombat_wasnt_a_good_fit
Welp, that pretty much put an end to that idea...
MK should include Sheng Long, just to mess with them.It's not that, it's weird how Street Fighter is apparently too kiddy to get in Mortal Kombat.
Then again, MK's guest characters are nothing but serial killers anyway. Akuma just murdered one guy, and even that didn't stick.
Yeah, if by some miracle that an MK character does get in, it would probably only be one. Also Scorpion & Sub-Zero being echo fighters of each other would be a disastrous way to represent them. The two have very different, unique moves that belong to each character. Superficially they may look similar, but play-style wise the two ninjas have drastically different elements behind them.A western echo of MK is really unlikely, its really too early for the discussion, honestly. Scorpion or Sub Zero will most likely be singular reps.
