  1. Well, on the DLC topic, it isn't always planned ahead of time.  If they see that a) Enough people want it, b) People feel there's not enough content or c) The developers see it's success and want to continue doing it, we may get some.  SEGA said the exact same thing about Mania Plus, and they also did not initially have plans for Super Sonic in Forces.  So there's precedent for them to change their minds.

    Is a wolfeinstein character in high demand though? And also given it’s close relation to topics like Nazis, I wonder if it’s inclusion would be deemed “too political” for Nintendo tbh.

    This is the same game with a witch who kills angels and a teenager who basically has the devil by his side IIRC.  Political isn't really a thing when it comes to Smash

  3. Wolfenstein was one of the  first shooting games, debuting in 1981.  It's very iconic, and it also had a sequel that was one of the first ever 3d shooters (Wolfenstein 3D).  It's been around longer than Mario, and B.J. Blazkowicz has been shooting up Nazis on millions of screens.  It's hard to be more iconic than that.

    So I’m curious. If Bethesda WAS to get a rep in Smash, who would you like to see? Dovakhin/Dragonborn, or Doom Marine?



    I could see either, and realistically I’d say doom marine has the better chance since he’s a actual established character as opposed to an avatar, on top of having a longer historical place in the gaming world, but my personal bias leans more on Dovakhin since Skyrim is such a historic landmark of the gaming industry, as well as his obvious move set potential including dragon shouts, swords/axes/etc, and magic. On top of that, we do have avatars already in Smash bros so there’s precedent. We could certainly also have different races as alts, since we’ve seen character swaps already work for certain characters like Bowser Jr. and Olimar. The possible hurdles I can see though for him are, obviously Doom Guy himself, as well as the possibility of Steve from Minecraft. Should Steve get in, that’s another avatar character on top of the already 2 we have(Villager and Mii’s). 

    Do we REALLY want the Todd Howard-related crap that'd happen if he made it in?  Plus, there are plenty more characters beyond the two, such as BJ Blazkowicz, Commander Keen (Who id loves shoehorning into everything, such as being the relative of both Doom Guy and Blazkowicz), Fallout characters, etc.

    On a lesser note, it'd be amusing that we'd have two Ryus along with two Roys. (Unless they pronounce with "Riyu" instead of "Reeyu," which I mostly doubt)

    Or they could say Hayabusa or his full name (I think it's Dead or Alive that called him Hayabusa for short).   I'm also hoping if he's in that we get awesome costumes (Maybe even an alt in the style of his NES outfit) as well as some rendition of the legendary Ninja Gaiden Act 4-2 (Also known as "Unbreakable Determination"):

    It's sampled from Ninja Gaiden as much, if not more than Green Hill Zone.   A remix was his theme for Warrior's Orochi 3  , the I Wanna Be the Boshy level based on it chose it, and it was even remixed for the Game Boy game.  It is practically considered his theme at this point.

    Edit:  How could I forget the godlike SNES version

    This is under the impression it’s real. Should it be, and they reveal one of the out there picks like Ryu or Artorias, nintendo just shot themselves in the foot.


    then again, would be interesting if someone at nintendo purposely did this as a way to throw off people’s speculations knowing how fucking batshit crazy the fanbase is with sleuthing to the itty details... 

    Ryu Hayabusa isn't really out there.  He's the face of Koei Tecmo, the last big Japanese company without a rep.  He was a part of the old leak that leaked Joker.  He's also been a fixture in gaming, from his debut on the NES to Dead or Alive to Warrior's Oroshi.   Artorias, on the other hand, is definitely out there as even Nintendo gave the amiibo role to Solaire, who is considered much more to be the face of Dark Souls.

  7. Well, Monolith Soft was hiring for Legend of Zelda, and King Zell said BOTW fans would be happy for 2020... So maybe BOTW sequel a la Majora's Mask (Reusing assets, etc.).   We usually have a game announced by this point to be the big focus of the Direct, but alas we haven't, and the last time that happened Mario Odyssey ended up being the big game.

    I just went back to Piranha Plant’s Classic Mode, and i gotta day, I really like the idea behind getting characters like Rathalos whose franchises don’t or couldn’t get playable representation, and I only wish we got at least one or two more bosses like that. My ideas for a while were Magician Type-0 from House of the Dead and Seath the Scaleless from Dark Souls.

    I was thinking more Heihachi, as Sakurai said that back in Smash 4 he tried to add him in, but was unable to get it to work due to Tekken's uniqueness IIRC (It had something to do with Heihachi, at least.  He said so in an interview).

  9. Off topic slightly, but if you like the shoes he wore, here's a link: https://us.puma.com/en/us/pd/speed-500-mens-running-shoes/192253.html?dwvar_192253_color=Puma Black-Puma White#&gid=1&pid=1

    They only have them in black and white now, but they're supposed to start getting red and white in November (And these ones I may actually be able to afford at that point, and I may need new shoes by that point 😉 )  Anyways, if you like it there you go.
