The publisher thing, just in case people wonder, meant that Sakurai's team have to update the publisher who owns the character(s) as development progress. Better to show your work to them to be "right" during development so that you can make appropriate changes rather than say, inform the publisher right at the end, which meant scrapping a lot of work if they didn't like certain parts.

With that said, this confirms we have third parties.

On to less serious not to mention depressing topics.

Something that's been on my mind since the game came out is that given spirit battles give you only one life, there should be spirits that give you extra stock.

Sometimes I wish you could replay spirit battles when you wanted, just maybe without prizes

I wish we had a Boss Battle mode rather than having to ascend and beat up puppet fighters on the way up.

A create your own spirit battle would be a fun mode. Take any of the spirits you've unlocked and then craft a specific battle around it with your conditions to share with other players online.

So, I've had this thought in my head today about what Rare characters we could have gotten instead of Banjo. (Not counting Krystal or any DK characters)

My main thoughts were:

  • Zitz (Battletoads)
  • Conker (Conker's Bad Fur Day)
  • Joanna (Perfect Dark)
  • Riptor (Killer Instinct)

It's my people's fault my nation went down, not mine!!!!

Battletoads was made by Rare?

Mar 18th 2020 at 6:12:07 PM

Yep. Microsoft owns the IP now and the people working on the new one aren't Rare since Rare barely exists any more.

[up]x2 As much as I'd like Conker, he's too risque for Smash. And as neat as the other 3 could be, I don't think we're getting another Rare-Microsoft rep. If we get another Microsoft rep, it won't be from Rare (it'll most likely be Steve?, or my preferred pick, Jesse).

No way a Minecraft rep would be from the Telltale game. I guess they technically have more character, but that wouldn't really come into play and it's far less iconic than Steve?. Not to mention the potential rights issues. At most, there would be an alt referencing it.

I missed the part where that's my problem.

For Killer Instinct, it's more or less between Jago(the protagonist) and Fulgore(the mascot). Before the reboot, Fulgore had a far bigger lead, but Jago only somewhat has something due to them choosing him to (at first) represent the reboot game(Definitive Edition has a lot more characters on the cover and all).

And yeah, Battletoads got a new game. It has a bit of a more cartoony artstyle overall, but we haven't seen enough of how it plays compared to the original beyond that. It still looks a lot like the same style of game overall, just with a new art.

Who's one of the most prominent characters in Sea of Thieves? Maybe we could get a Pirate in Smash?

Mar 18th 2020 at 9:32:20 PM

Pretty sure Sea of Thieves doesn't have any prominent characters, as with most current online-multiplayer-only games.

We do have at least one playable pirate: Ridley. Though he's probably not the kind of pirate most people think of.

Mar 18th 2020 at 9:42:41 PM

[up]x3 From the videos I've seen of Sea of Thieves, there are NPC's... And Skeleton Pirates. Skeleton Pirate for Smash?

[up]x2 I don't think Shantae's getting in this time. I could see her as an addition in Smash 6, along with a lot of other Indie Characters, but I don't think she's coming to Ultimate. Could be wrong.
