Idea: What if they did updates the way TF2 did them where they set up a whole webpage with an overview of the update, and over the course of three days the webpage is updated more until finally Joker’s reveal trailer is shown and the update is released?

On second thought, Duel Smash does sound pretty suspect. And it’s still funny the leaker only said the release date for Japan and not the rest of the world

I’m going to assume nobody’s talked about this yet.

Thoughts?
These are pretty safe claims since I have no real way of going about disproving any of ‘em, and we know Joker and Mementos, and stage builder, are going to be in already.
If you spent 5 minutes thinking about what joker might possibly do, and what mementos might be, you might end up along the same lines.
“Joker’s down throw is like when he rips off an enemy mask” “his victory theme is his victory theme and his animation is his victory animation” etc.

Something about the stage background looks super cheap, can’t put my finger on it but it just does look that way
Also, why is Joker facing the screen? TBH this could very easily be faked.

Also, I'm not quite sure Atlus would want Joker's stage to spoil P5's endgame. That would be really weird.

Perhaps it’s due to the perspective, or the filter, or what have you- but it looks like a Paper Mario environment lmao

Duel Smash sounds dumb either way because what's the point of an items on version of a 1v1 FD-only mode and it's also strictly worse than Quickplay anyways as long as it has no BF forms.

The Idle animation is pretty suspicious and something about the image is off somehow I can't quite put my finger on it but it's also quite sus..

Not to mention that all of these are very safe predictions except for Duel Smash which doesn't seem real I can't debunk that part but it came out of nowhere and it's weird.

This entire thing just seems suspicious though I can't quite debunk it either way.

Honestly if this is real somehow, I’m pretty sure it’ll end up looking better in the game.
Also, why is Joker facing the screen? TBH this could very easily be faked.

official media has had characters face the camera before.

Well I already went ahead and started saving my replays. I do think they'll give us a warning ahead of time before the update drops but I'd rather get that done and over with sooner then later anyway.

I've got a handful of fun Bowser and Ridley clips. I'm planning on making a mixed :ultbowser::ultcharizard::ultridley: mini-montage at some point today or tomorrow. Even if my last montage never took off I'm still a little excited to share it though, so here's a little sneak peak.

People are ignoring the biggest flaw here, and that’s that the stage is the final dungeon of the game.
Sakurai might not care that much about spoilers but I seriously doubt he’d spoil the ending of a game that isn’t even on the Switch like that.
Yeah like

Character spoilers is nothing to Sakurai, like with Mecha-Fiora being added to Shulk’s Final Smash, Palutena casually name dropping the Chaos Kin in her trailer, and Lucas’s entire Brawl Trophy description

But stages? Especially third party stages, having spoilers? To my knowledge that hasn’t been done before

(FYI I don’t count New Pork City as such an area, it’s only the final town)

It's not even minor spoilers either. It's legit the final act of the game.

im not changing this

chris evans' face cgi'd onto this skinny little kid was the most unnerving ****
Skinny Rogers was perfectly balanced
It's been like 2 minutes since he retired what do you mean 'still'?
...50 years have passed...
Oh c'mon it wasn't that bad, right?

Therapist: "Skinny Chris Evans isn't real. He can't hurt you"

This thread can't go two minutes without Smash news, 2 minutes are, like, 10 Hunter x Hunter episodes to them
Skinny Steve was well done imo
So... he's gone.

I sensed the light fading from the world.
All hope is lost. With Reggie gone... We have to have faith in who we have left.
Sakurai, Anouma and Miyamoto.
Can you fulfil the role of Reggie? I hope so, for all our sakes.
We need a hero to save us now
Marvel...do this now
I mean, if we're being technical, Sakurai hasn't worked at Nintendo in a very long time. He's a freelancer.
HE’S STILL NINTENDO TO US DAMMIT!!!!
I’ll believe it just because

Nah, the Shadow Moses is clearly based on the MGS1 version.
Yeah but the Gecko didn't exist back then, and neither is Ray, like I get what you're saying, but those two were cleary put here as spoilers for MGS4, not that anyone paid attention to it at the time, mind you.

Gekkos appear in the first act, like they were from 4 yes but I wouldn't say they were spoilers in 4 because I don't think anyone predicted we'd be going back to Shadow Moses in it. Ray also could just be seen as a 2 reference.

Snake in Smash is still such a weird amalgamation of every game in the series. I love it. It makes no sense and isn't accurate at all and yet it's perfect.

Random question

IF Brave is indeed Erdrick or some other third party character, wouldn’t it make more sense to reveal them at E3? It’s literally only 2 months away

And yes I am completely aware that Cloud and Bayonetta were non-E3 third party reveals, but again, E3 is rather close and Brave is the second datamined placeholder

Beat Concrete Man. That third elephant is truly awful. If you get damged by the ball you're pretty much guaranteed to get sucked into the hole and die. Concrete Man even with the Lazer Trident is still a pretty tough boss, you really have to dodge the concrete shots.
Now it's on to the Wily stages. Can I just quickly mention that this game's OST is a banger?

If the Shadow Moses stage spoiled MGS4, it was in a subtle way - Shadow Moses hadn't even been announced as returning in MGS4 when the Smash Bros. stage was made, (the announcement video for that reveal included Smash footage) and the inclusion of other Metal Gears could easily be seen as a fun easter egg, or a way to add some variety to the background.

There's a big difference between that and including the final area of a lengthy RPG as a Smash Bros. stage (I haven't finished Persona 5 yet, so I don't know the stage or its significance) - Smash tends to lean towards early game material with its third party stages (Cloud got Midgar, the first area in FF7; all of Sonic's stages have been intro stages), with Mega Man being the only exception that I can think of.

I kinda think Brave will be revealed outside of E3, Erdrick is such a Japan-centric character I just don’t think he’d get hype out of an American convention.

I'm still thinking we're not getting anything more than 3.0.0 and Joker this month.

May is gonna be completely silent, as usual. E3 will be a month away by then, it makes more sense for Nintendo to wait and potentially have Erdrick be an "Available now!" reveal akin to Ryu and Roy.

i'm skeptical because erdrick doesn't seem that recognisable a character for a western-only gaming event

half the reason 'microsoft or bethesda rep at e3' caught on is because it's so western focused

I kind of wish they cared LESS about spoilers so we could get some cooler stages TBH.
I'm a tad disappointed by the amount of "Level 1" stages in Smash, as games often save the coolest areas for the endgame.

Like the various Bowser's Castles/Worlds/Planets. Or imagine getting a Hyrule Castle stage from BotW instead of the starting field. Or any of the cool Metroid Prime areas that aren't the ship you spend five minutes on at the start of the game.
