  1. OMG, I hadn't considered this possibility. I mean I doubt it, but imagine that lol. Probably not, considering how important the main location appears to be. Sonic could speed across the globe at some point, though, passing through Europe.

    Defending The Treasure Hunting...

    SA's always felt kind of pointless and awkward, honestly, while SA2 actually fleshed them out with dedicated level design. The problem is that not everyone liked them enough to justify expansion on the concept. Not to mention, they changed the radar. I went back and played SA2 recently and while I still think they're ok, they're very much a relic of the past.
  3. That's lovely and all, but isn't really very helpful without some context. Make sure that, in future, you at the very least add a description explaining why a video like this is relevant to the discussion.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    The icons become transparent when a character (in this case Pacman) is behind it. As for the model; it's apparently not from any other game. So much in the image lines up with the demo build, right down to the feet glitching through the platform. Another point is that the stage should have paint splattered all over it, adding to the evidence that this is a real debug mode. Ken would make sense as an Echo because he's like the quintessential fighting clone in video games and it wouldn't take a huge amount of work to add him to the roster.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    I'm pretty sure the reason for adapting BoG and RoF was because they were never written with future story arcs in mind (not to mention that Super's rushed production meant they had no other story prepared). This, on the other hand, is branded as part of Super, with the staff fully aware that the series is likely to continue in some form. I don't think there's a need to worry about them retreading ground again.

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (December 7th)

    True, but Final Fantasy is Square's biggest franchise and Cloud is by far its most recognisable character. I don't think Sora's impossible, but the fact that his upcoming game is only being released for the competition would suggest the odds aren't in his favour. EDIT: OK, I didn't realise that the Switch version of DQ XI was so far off, but at least it's actually intended to happen. And I'm not saying that Sora has no history with Nintendo. It's just that, while he began his journey exclusive to the PlayStation, DQ established itself longer ago and on the NES, no less. But who knows. I don't really have any personal stake in the decision, so it makes no difference to me.

    It would only seem odd over Dragon Quest, given its significance. EDIT: Hang on, looking it up, KH3's not even on the Switch? That makes Sora even more unlikely, surely? I must be massively late to the party on this, lol. I have very little interest in Square games. =p

    I'd personally be surprised if Sora made it in over a Dragon Quest character. A new game has just come out and as mentioned above, is second only to Final Fantasy in the Square pantheon of games. It even started on Nintendo consoles, much like Castlevania. That is unless Sakurai feels that it's more suited to a boss encounter over a character (ala Monster Hunter).

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    If Dodonpa is a disguise, then it would likely just be a badnik, since Eggman and Metal are in the race. Free Riders already did the Neo Metal Sonic schtick anyway, didn't it? Regardless, I'd rather the little tanuki was just his own character. I can't think of any outcome where a ruse like that wouldn't feel cliche and unnecessary.

    Team Sonic Racing - Upcoming Sonic Racing Game

    Ice Mountain has just been confirmed to be a combination of different levels, explaining its lack of a specific identity. EDIT: They also mentioned that 12 of the 15 characters have been revealed so far. Now, obviously Eggman is not included in that, despite being included in the demonstration, but that means the Egg Pawns really are just generic enemies and aren't taking a slot. Perhaps this has already been stated; it's just I've noticed some concern expressed about it. So who will Eggman and Metal be teaming up with? Orbot and Cubot? Infinite?
  11. It looks like the one and only new Pokémon has leaked via Pokémon Go, and it's... underwhelming? Weird? WTF? Head over to Serebii to see it, anyway.
  12. There's no reason you couldn't have argued your points without resorting to petty personal attacks, but in doing so you have only drawn attention to your equally troubling history with hostility towards members. Not to mention the compulsive ban-dodging and penchant for alt accounts. I need not go on.
  13. I really thought Peach was playable, but I guess I wasn't paying enough attention at this point in the Direct. Y'know, looking at this Peachette transformation, I can't not think of that Omelette/Eggette Mania fan character.

    Nintendo Direct Megathread

    While the Direct did drag in the middle for me, the two games I've wanted them to announce the most - Animal Crossing and Luigi's Mansion 3 - were both in there, so.... I'm pretty damn chuffed. I'd have been more chuffed had we seen some actual gameplay footage, but what can you do. With them and Pokémon on the way, 2019 is looking pretty sweet on the Nintendo side of things for little ol' Pawn.

    Let's not get off-topic, guys. Please direct all Smash discussion to its own thread.
