In other news, here's a new assist trophy! Alolan Raichu!

Pokeball Pokemon.

The proper term is Pokeball Pokemon. Not an Assist Trophy. Hell, they predate Assist Trophies. PLEASE use the correct terms.

I know this isn't that big of a deal but it annoys the hell out of me.

Thinking that Daisy's amiibo would be releasing alongside the game in December like Inkling and Ridley? CAN'T LET YOU DO THAT!

Him and Ridley will ABSOLUTELY be on my radar this Christmas.

Every time I go to a store and they have Amiibo, the spots that aren't empty are filled with Waluigi and Daisy amiibo.  I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo isn't fantastically eager to release another Daisy.

That said Ridley and Snake are MINE

Called it, having a re-release of the old amiibos is the best thing they could do, some of them are practically impossible to find without forking so many bucks online.

Especially since that asshat Mariotehplumber hate-bought all those amiibos of Rosalina, Lucina, Robin, Palutena, and ZSS just to spite fans and Nintendo.  I'm not even sugar coating it; it's been three years since that happened, and we still have yet to see more reprints of those amiibos

Wait what? How loaded is that guy that he can buy literally all prints of an amiibo just to piss off people?

It wasn't literally all of them, but it was a lot. He was a dime-a-dozen scalper whose sole claim to notoriety was online behavior that could best be described as... abnormal. Either way, it's probably best not to pay much mind to people like him, especially considering the amiibo market isn't a scalper minefield like it was when Smash first launched.

For those of you already itching for more newcomers, I'm afraid that rash is gonna last a while:

NL: Are there plans to either announce characters between now and December or is the finalized, complete roster? Can we expect to see more at a later date?

Trinen: We can answer that when we get closer to December.

NL: Will there be DLC? Are there plans to expand on the game after release?

Trinen: The thing about us, when it comes to something like DLC, we don't really start on it until we have got the game done. So, maybe when the game comes out they will make a decision on if they will do it, or if they do what they want to do, that sort of thing.

Bit of a bummer that there likely won't be any big reveals for quite some time, but I think we can last a few more months. And it's refreshing to know Nintendo still doesn't like to think about DLC until after the core game is released. Also worth noting:

Trinen(In response to being told how big a project Ultimate is): It really is. You're talking, just from the playable characters, 30 different IP represented. That doesn't even include all of the Assist Trophies. Even the Assist Trophies use third-party characters as well.

Could we be seeing more guest assist characters than just Bomberman?

"Closer to December" could mean anywhere between now and then though. I get the feeling he's being vague on purpose to try and control expectations.

Sephiroth or Barret please. Also wouldn’t it be funny if that’s how Rayman gets in?

This exactly. Its nothing more than a non-answer.

I'm not expecting an especially huge number of newcomers, and I don't think there are a whole lot of options left anyway. As far as safe picks for first parties are concerned I can only think of Springman, K.Rool and yet another fucking Pokemon and Fire Emblemer. Most of the demand as of late has been for 3rd parties, which I imagine are expensive and tough to negotiate, and honestly I'm surprised Smash 4 even had as many as it did. I think I'd be happier overall if they took most of that time and put it into balancing and replay value instead.

Balancing is gonna get done either way, but aside from some other certain newcomers, in the regard of replay value, what I'd love is a new story mode.

If the game really is around the same size as Smash Wii U, I don't think we're gonna see a big difference in terms of single-player modes. don't bring smash tour back

All I hope for is a good version of Classic Mode at this point, and Ultimate Smash Run.

My ideal single player would be Melee Adventure mode with a branching path system.

Each big franchise gets a platforming level, two or three enemies, then you fight a guy at the end.  Rinse and repeat.  Say there are five different endpoints, each one gives you a trophy of a palette swap of your character.

Smash Tour was rough, but I wouldn't call it single player content. It's primarily mutliplayer-focused.

Same for Smash Run, which was markedly less terrible (though still flawed). I'd love to see that come back, but I don't even know how they'd handle it. The whole reason it was 3DS exclusive was because every player, by necessity, had their own system and therefore their own screen. Trying to bring that to consoles where most players are looking for a couch-multiplayer experience doesn't really work. Is there anything they could do to adapt it?

Melee has everything I want out of actual single player content. If they made a new Adventure mode and "fixed" Classic mode, we'd be golden.
