....How long til months of Capcom and Namco wars start?
Right now dude lol. I've already seen some Resident Evil VS Ace Attorney debates.

That being said, the idea that the last two newcomers have to be from Capcom/Namco is nothing but assumptions on the part of the community. I don't see any reason to believe that aside from the Mii Costume theory.

Mr. Sakurai's WIld Ride
Another discussion, I’m still really satisfied the MS and SE wars have finally reached a conclusion.

The Capcom wars has been pretty prominent in this thread for a while now, it's just not as hostile.

This time, it's pretty much a three way war between Phoenix Wright, Dante, and A Resident Evil rep

Heck there's even a little mini debate over which RE rep we'd be getting. Would it be Jill? Maybe Leon? Heck, could it be Chris? None of us are entirely sure

And just to remind everyone, Mii Costumes were dropped out of the blue before and weren't tied to any character. We saw that happen twice in Smash 4's DLC cycle (one in late-July, the other September). I don't see why they can't release either of the two company's Mii Costumes in some other wave.

Of course I do expect Mii Costumes to be tied in with whatever new fighter is released but they can be released at anytime unrelated to anything,

>three way war
Maybe four way if you throw in Monster Hunter? Though it would be back down to three if you believe the producer’s statement deconfirms Dante

As for Namco, it’s mostly Tales Of vs Xenosaga and even then it’s not as aggressive

Ah to heck with it, it’s grasping at straws but I’ll take a crack at the sidekick/mascot theory and make a list.

-Crash & Aku Aku
-Arle & Carbuncle
-Phoenix & Maya
-Spyro & Sparx

That’s all I got.
Sans and Papyrus?

The funny thing about narrowing things down is that you'll never get to the point where you figure out the newcomer from proccess of elimination alone. Patterns can be broken at any time and character you never even gave much consideration can come entirely out of left field. Not to say there isn't any value in trying to decide he's unlikely, but we should never put too much stock in speculation.
Anyone remember Theory Theory? The theory that theorizes that all theories are just theories?
Evolution is just a theory. Think about it. If Pikachus evolved from Pichus, why are there still Pichus?

But Zelda's always been the protagonist...
oh yikes sweetie sweet summer child i literally cant even, you appear to have misused the proper english technique known as an article by confusing the with the article a to imply that princess zelda williams, daughter of robin williams, is the sole protagonist instead of one of many, implying perhaps as a main protagonist. sarcasm is nil, and the world is on fire for your incompetence.

as i just now just displayed my clearly superior intellect, you are now banished to the timmy thick tundra

speculation without any leaks honestly feels boring as hell
its just yelling at each other, now with people arguing if this random person on the internet is credible or not

I hope nothing gets leaked because I love surprises and I know I can't trust y'all to put things in spoiler tags.

Hopefully Verge will be back soon to spill some deets in the coming weeks. This place needs some life.
Dang, we got Hero and Banjo-Kazooie and we are already in a "drought".
How sad, but I can understand. The curiosity flows within all of us.
Also whatever Verge leaks, is 99% true. Everyone, be cautious, as we can get a giant war bomb if dataminers discover another codename.

Okay, fair enough. Zelda's always been the main protagonist, aka the player character. This is Zelda:

I will say I ain't going to the "timmy thick tundra" though.

with me it's not so much that we're in a drought and just that I find leaks more interesting to talk about. Talking about who we think is likely is always clouded by bias and rarely actually amounts to anything. Leaks feel far more concrete, they provide a base for us to build discussion off of.

Who in the world designed that one challenge where you have to beat 100 man Smash with Ken, but you can only use special moves? That was the most aggravating thing in Ultimate so far, especially since items and floor attacks count against you, so God forbid you accidentally hit a POW block that suddenly spawned in when you're in the middle of a Shoryuken. And even more irritating is that non Mii CPUs can pick up items, and heaven forbid they drop it on the battlefield, because one hit and it's back to the beginning.

Ugh, it took me hours to complete that. Especially since Shulk and Chrom spawned in in several of the games, so I had nothing to do against their range and (mainly Buster Shulk's) damage output.

Just ugh.

Which is why I smashed it with a hammer! It's brilliant, brilliant, brilliant!

some of the challenges in ult felt oddly specific compared to past ones. Like that one challenge where you have to finish off a lvl 9 CPU with robin's rapid jab.

So, what's the sidekick theory? That each DLC character also features another character somewhere within it's moveset? Like Petey, Morgana, Slime (and Munchie), and Kazooie?

Yeah that's the long and short of it.

I personally think it's just a coincidence, but who knows maybe it points to a trend of characters bringing a little something extra with them from their respective franchises, which I wouldn't be opposed to.

DQ and FF debuted in the 80s though.
Actually, that was a typo. I meant to type 80's but I have big fingers.

I did that too, but every time I either hit an item by accident, SD by mistake, or get outranged by Shulk and Chrom and dying.


No disjoint gang...

I just reset it for new CPUs, and I beat it in like 3 more attemps after that with Shoryu spam.

You know, it is nice that Sakurai allowed the DLC fighters to bring a buddy this time around. All the DLC newcomers in Smash 4 just had themselves, and that's that.
