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

Recommended Posts

It kind of does

This is the last exclusive Smash dedicated Direct so there won't be any more big blowout character reveals. There really is no reason for them to delay the other characters that are coming out because this is the last big thing. 

Err, friendly reminder that while it's the last Smash dedicated event, that's no where close to suggesting that future directs won't include any Smash news. At that point, unless they've got another huge Smash megaton, might as well (re)introduce new Smash characters within directs.

we are really scrapping the bottom of the barrel here. We have seen that Mario Kart 8 support has all but died after a good year of support. same thing for smash. I really doubt that anything major will be announced after this dedicated direct. maybe some balance updates and more mii costumes but I think we are reaching the end of it.

This is a possibility, but they reserve Smash directs for a lot of Smash content that people want the details about.

If they save something else for a later direct, it'll be small like a new stage or mii costumes that won't need much explanation, but new characters seem like a bit much.

Just in time for Disney XD to apparently pick it back up. Go ironic frickin' figure.

Anyway, as I stated, ignoring the fact that we're pulling off assumptions anyway on data mining which is months old, we have nothing concrete to really suggest that Smash 4 still won't be getting the goods after this Smash direct.

The fact that this is the last Smash dedicated direct is pretty concrete evidence that DLC is slowing down to a halt

It's honestly a bit hard not to see it that way

What's with the sassy comeback here? We are talking about DLC here not on why a channel that a good majority of the people don't have access to will show random people playing a game. The conversation was never about Nintendo dropping support as in advertisement for one of there evergreen titles. It's been almost a good year since we have seen some Mario Kart 8 DLC. 

 

So just go to the corner and cool down a bit why don't you.

Thanks sooo much to @Pinky Claws for this.

Pshaw, a new character here and there every now and then isn't even always that big a load of trouble to go through. I'd rather not delve into talk of clones of course,

Urrm, sorry that's still too assumptive for my taste. I'd agree that it signifies the inevitable slower pace of Smash updates, but as Sakurai has shown us from time to time, trying to predict his movements on anything less than an absolute confirmation from an official first hand source is almost always a fruitless endeavor.

So I'll agree to disagree with that notion for now.

Yeeshka, settle down there man, You specifically referred to MK8 support in your post, not that it's necessarily relevant to how Smash 4 handles stuff anyway as they're two different games and teams, so I just pointed out the recent news of Disney support. Also, fear not, there's no hidden "sassy" tone to be found; I'm not teasing ya.;)

DLC will be definitely slowing down for Smash Wii U/3DS what with the NX most likely coming next year. I do think they could give some updates on DLC in normal directs in the future, though.

Also, I've seen people suggest there could be a port of Smash 4 to NX. Then we could get Smash NX Directs ;D

That might not be a bad idea; Smash 4 is so definitive that I don't see them being able to top it for quite a long time, so why not keep updating and maintaining it?

I really can't see them going on with the DLC much longer. They already worked a year on DLC, I honestly don't think they will keep together the Team for much longer than that.

I think 3 characters is the max we're going to get. Maybe a fourth one that they could squeeze in because it was an easy Veteran or something, but I think we're quickly approaching the end of the DLC.

I can see that: Smash Bros Definitive Edition, with all DLC and exclusive content only for the NX and the New 3DS.

I wouldn't expect New 3DS. NX is going to have a home console and a handheld one, so I think it would basically be Smash Bros Ultimate with all DLC and stages from both versions that could be playable on any NX console. 

Would be cool if they'd add Ice Climbers since 3DS wouldn't be holding it back.

I think we'll get 2-3 characters this month and 1-2 next year, to be honest. This month, Cloud and maybe a veteran or two.

Is anybody here contributing to this week's Team Conquest competetion between Sonic and Lucario as well? I've been trying to contribute only to Sonic so far (Given that I post on a Sonic fan-site), though I've had my fair share of wins and losses in the deciding matches, since Sonic's pretty finicky gameplay-wise to me with how easy it is to intercept him, although I think I rely way too much on the spindash for approaching tools.:huh:

An extended life to Smash eh?  Hmmmm,  unlikely as it may seem,  I could also see them saving a story mode of some sort (maybe cutscene-less :P) to a more definitive version that finally has all it's characters in mind.

I'm really starting to lose faith about Krystal getting into Smash. I really want her to get it but it seems like Nintendo is kind of pushing her aside and want to slowly forget that she ever existed. I don't know, this may be me and I maybe overthinking it but yeah my hopes for Krystal getting in have dropped quite a bit. The ones that I'm still have high hopes getting in is Phoenix Wright and Professor Layton. If either one of them get announced I will be super happy.

Nintendo has lately wanted to forget alot of what Rare created. Sure they kept beloved characters like Diddy ,Dixie , cranky, funky, Rambi, and squawks and sure the kritters appear in smash but other than that the kremlings are all but forgotten

I have reason to beleive that the Smash direct will be on 18th since it will not only be the anniversary of Mega Man, but also of Final Fantasy, due to Cloud's inclusion as DLC

To be fair, Krystal has a lot of competition in terms of inclusion in Smash, and her lack of appearance in Star Fox Zero doesn't mean anything, since that game is yet another remake of Star Fox SNES/64. The guy at Platinum who even confirmed her absence also said that he'd actually like to see her in a sequel, which implies that she could show up again in another game. Let's not lose our heads over this.

Eh, that's a somewhat pessimistic view of things, it's making a rather bold assumption that Retro not including the Kremlings in Returns and Tropical Freeze implies that Nintendo is trying to actively ignore Rare's stuff, instead of it simply being Retro wanting different casts of enemies rather than rehashing the Kremlings again.

Miyamoto literally said that it's not a remake nor is it a re-imagining; it is it's own, separate thing in the continuity.

There's a Nintendo Power interview with Tanabe were he is asked why the Kremlings arent in the game. He said Retro wanted to add them but Miyamoto didnt see a reason for there return so Retro created its original enemies.

The 5th? It's possible. They generally announce the release date for these presentations 1-2 days before it happens. But considering how cheap it is, IDK. That's like Cloud, his stage and a few Mii costumes maybe. Doesn't seem like anyone else would come with him.

I was thinking the direct would take place on the 10th, but Pokken has a character announcement for that day, so I don't think so anymore. I dunno, I still think it might happen much later just so I don't get too excited, hehe.

I hope we eventually get another story mode! Subspace Emissary was incredible, and I was really looking forward to seeing something like that for Smash 4. I think it was going to originally, but people began to leak the story online, so they just cancelled it. :c

Respectfully, I couldn't see Krystal getting into Smash, as awesome as it would be. There's too much competition for the next slot(s), and I don't think she's nearly popular enough to beat some of the most requested like Banjo and Kazooie or even Shovel Knight.

Also, I understand what you're saying with Nintendo kind of pushing her aside. But who's to say she's out of the series in general? Zero is theorized to be a separate timeline from the games we already know, like another branch. This is the 3rd time they've remade the original story (unless you want to count 64 3D). They very well could be making Zero to test out how today's gaming community responds to Star Fox, and if it's well, they'll bring in the other timeline.

But hey, that's just a theory.

Didn't Krystal come top, or pretty high, in a Japanese-fanbase poll, though?  If she happened to be the top-requested character on Nintendo's home turf, I don't think they'd be able to ignore it.  So I get the impression that she's in with a chance, though I don't know much about her myself.
