Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS - Settle It In Smash!

Recommended Posts

Say you guys, if you are going to use minions as evidence towards playable characters, the fact is that with one exception(super strikers) Every game the Kremlings have been in K.Rool has been in, from Barrel blast to super sluggers

 

The Kremlings are not an indication of King K. Rool whatsoever. They're just the most iconic Donkey Kong enemies (besides Mario, but he's kinda in the game already) - and seeing as we have two DK reps, both notably from the Donkey Kong Country games, it makes sense for them to have the generic grunts from that series.

 

K. Rool is still a possibility I suppose but I really really wouldn't count on him being in. I'd say Assist Trophy at best, if I had to guess.

 

Having obscure Rhythm Heaven and Xenoblade Chronicles enemies pop up though... yeah, that's suspicious. Especially as the latter is now topical again thanks to Xenoblade Chronicles X on Wii U.

By the way, have we seen any Wario enemies?

No, but then we haven't seen anyone or anything from Fire Emblem or Animal Crossing yet either. The former because virtually every enemy is a human or humanoid and thus paints a non kid-friendly image if a random Manakete or Archer was an enemy, and the latter because there's barely any malicious antagonists in AC to speak of. Wario's sadly likely going to be in his Warioware persona, and that has the same level of tameness as AC.

Ehhh, I don't have an actual argument, but I think I'm right xD

 

The best I can say is, that Sakurai might've wanted to represent series that didn't make the playable roster in ways besides trophies and maybe he thought they'd be fun to see and have clever ways to attack.

 

 

By the way, have we seen any Wario enemies?

I do like the idea of seeing enemies from non-repped series' in Smash Run and I hope we do, I'd love to see Golden Sun enemies even if we don't see a Golden Sun rep..

 

Also I haven't noticed any Wario enemies, but we also haven't seen any Ice Climber enemies besides that Polar Bear in a screenshot from forever ago.

 

I also do think Wario Land enemies are possible, I mean we're seeing enemies from many different parts of characters' histories in Smash Run so far, it'd be a real shame if there were no Wario Land enemies.

As far as enemies in WarioWare go, Game and Wario could provide a few, such as the army of Wario robots from "Arrow" or the UFOs from "Taxi". Heck, if we're really reaching, the giant cookies from "Ashley"

As far as Animal Crossing enemies go... they could have... umm... oh god... THE BEES

 

aaaaaaaand that's about it as far as I can think of

 

I'd have said Tom Nook and all his raccoon brethren but we already know they show up as part of the Final Smash... much to the dismay of everyone who has ever played Animal Crossing and wants to pummel that greedy shopkeeper into the ground

That still sounds confusing, how do you "toggle" it? I don't really get it.. I also watched almost all the Treehouse stuff and didn't see it.

 

Ah well either way I'm sure it works well enough, whatever it is.

Found it, here's the comment:

 

 

http://smashboards.com/threads/time-to-tip-the-scales-robin-tactician-for-ssb4.334742/page-77

 

So yesterday the treehouse stream revealed that Miis are toggable through the menu and replace the random button. Leakerbros said the same thing in his post as well...

So there is still hope. A small shimmer of light; but it's there nonetheless

 

Basically, they talked about it, but it wasn't actually available in the demo. I missed that part, though, so I can't confirm it in any way.

 

 

 

As for this talk about K. Rool, I think the Kremlings appearing and the Chunky Kong AT do help his chances quite a bit. Kremlings last appeared around the same time K. Rool did and weren't "relevent" in the recent games, and Chunky Kong never appeared again post-DK64. Mostlikely, if we were to get a DK AT it'd probably be either King K. Rool or Dixie Kong first and foremost, but the first DK AT we've ever seen was Chunky Kong, a very obscure DK character who only appeared once.

 

Plus, DK's "revival" was way, way bigger and better than both that of Kid Icarus and Fire Emblem, with DKCR selling more than double the number of copies of both games combined. Tropical Freeze also debuted at #2 in the charts for both Japan and the west, although the western launch was far, far better than Japan.

We haven't seen any Sonic enemies, have we? Granted, I'm not actively searching every Smash Run video for them.

Anyway, as for enemies from series w/o a rep, I'd like to see some Alex Kidd enemies. Like that stupid car that drives into you, effectively being the hardest enemy to kill.

And for a more realistic choice, Advance Wars baddies!

The fact he and his minions go flying after the house explodes should provide SOME catharsis.

 

I like the idea of the Hammer Time robot being an Animal Crossing enemy, though. That'd be legitimately funny.

They... they do? biggrin.png

 

When the game comes out, remind me to snapshot the exact moment they get caught up in the blast. I will then upload the snapshot, print it out, frame it, and hang it triumphantly on my wall for all the world to see.

Yup! It was a playthrough during the Treehouse, they were playing on Skyloft, and after the house explodes, you can see Tom spinning offscreen, but since the background changed and everyone was in the air, they followed him until he just disappeared out of thin air.

Yeah, it's really weird that Egg-Robo of all things is in Smash Run. Everyone thought a Buzzbomber, Egg Pawn, or Motobug would be the series enemy rep, but having Egg-Robo, and a threatening Egg-Robo at that, is surprising. Makes me hope for a Sky Sanctuary song or nod to be present in the game.

Pac-Man's even weirder. The iconic Ghosts for enemies, or maybe something from Pac-World or Pac-Land?

Nah

Have a Pooka instead. Dig-Dug confirmed

Sky Sanctuary for 3DS would be amazing. biggrin.png

 

 

EDIT:

On the note of "dangerous" Egg Robos... has anyone SEEN all the different Kritters? Typically Kremling recolors don't do much, but these Kritters are totally badass, each one does a completely different thing and they're very different from one another. There's at least 3 varieties of Kritters.

Egg Robo's are in Smash Run, they have a powerful beam shot to look out for too, they never shot anything that powerful before.

Shooting a Speedy Laser Blast might just be the same thing, plus they've must've hacked their guns.

Seriously? Do you have a picture or video of them? :DD

Thanks Dabbido.

Just some EggRobo pics from the 3DS version stream : ) Egg-Robo seems to be quite the formidable foe!!! or at least not a pushover.

 

He has a regular shooting attack, and hovers away from you if you approach him (or it I guess), besides that he sometimes fires one huge energy beam, which knocks you back considerably, there seems to be a similar shot, but looks thinner to me, probably it's just the beginning of the energy beam.

Enjoy!

 

EDIT:

 

He also aims his shot, if you jump up he follows with his gun position, quite a nice touch I think!

Honestly, one of the things that makes me think K.Rool is possible, is that DK just went through a DKC related revival, is back in the spotlight and is extremely popular again, making him likely for 2 slots, of which one would be an iconic universal character(Dixie), and the other an Iconic, and possibly retro villain, which points to K.Rool, who would also be another great giant character additional to the roster, and contribute to the tradition of upscaling Trouble Kings every generation

 

unique appearance, and moveset help too, Kremlings and a variety of DK character Assist trophies(possibly Cranky and Chunky who hasn't appeared since 64) make it seem even more likely to me

also I want a K.Rool amiibo :P

So after tuning into Prog's stream, it was all clear for project M, but he basically confirmed that Nintendo knows about it, and are "intrigued" by it but for legal reasons can't discuss it publicly. 

 

It's for the best that they stay back from Project M. It's such a grey area that if they acknowledged it publicly (whether positively or negatively), it would bring nothing but problems.

 

However, this may also add some evidence to the idea that Sakurai actually took "some" inspiration to the mod, seeing as there have been noted similarities at points; but nothing confirmed.
