At least he had a decent chunk of songs for his stage. Imagine having the entire Final Fantasy catalogue and SE only allowing you two tracks.

This.
Nobody saw that coming. By the time Smash 4 was announced, everyone expected at least one third-party character, so seeing Mega Man in that trailer didn't do anything compared to what seeing Snake did.
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EwomLB-K0CE

This had me especially hyped because Nintendo released Ryu right on the day of the announcement, in deliberate contrast to all of the "Wait for two more years" AAA announcements. It was the one positive in the otherwise legendary trainwreck that was Nintendo's E3 2015.

Speak for yourself. By that point in time, Megaman had gotten like two or three nails in his coffin showing that he wouldn't get any justice in a fighting game, or really any video game, again.

It was a surprise to see that anyone in the gaming industry still cared about him at all. There was much more emotional potential there, it's the exact same reaction Nintendo evoked when they just flashed the Metroid Prime 4 logo without anything else at all.

Not only was Snake the most surprising character, but Melee was so good that at the time no one had any doubt that Brawl would be a great game. So they hype will never be surpassed.

I did love the Brawl Sonic and Mega Man trailers from a fan perspective though.

And I have to give props for the Duck Hunt trailer, because when I heard he was in the game I thought it sounded stupid but his trailer made me like him

>>386991294
The hidden characters (except for Lucina) didn't have trailers until after the game was released, Jr. included. It was the devs' idea to try to limit spoilers, futile as that was. So there wasn't any hype, per se.

Jr. turned out a lot better than I thought he would, mainly because I feared he was going to be a clone of his dad.

For Smash 4, Mega Man and Cloud were mind blowing.

This. It's still one of the most unexpected reveals in all vidya. This shit really came out of fucking nowhere, and on top of the hype of the just revealed Brawl. Unbelievable how far that game fell from expectation to disappointment, especially as a follow up from Melee. At least Smash 4 was better.

Yeah, but it's because of Smash and his subsequent amiibo that's he's been stapled to that goddamn car every game since.

>>386991417
I really like Cloud's inclusion but it still doesn't make any sense to me. FF7 isn't on any Nintendo platform. Don't bullshit me with that Chinese NES game. If the trailer subsequently announced FF7 for the WiiU or 3DS then that would be really cool but no. The rules have been totally thrown out the window. It doesn't matter if they've never been on a Nintendo console before; any character is up for grabs.

>>386993227
Supposedly Nintendo approached SE just wanting "a Final Fantasy character", but SE pushed Cloud specifically because Cloud still brings in the big bucks and it also works as cross-promotion for the FF7 remake.

This is just rumor so take it with a grain of salt.
>>
>>386993227
Cloud is Kingdom Hearts: COM and a FF rhythm game on 3DS. The only requirement a characters needs is to be on a Nintendo platform once.
>>
>>386993426
Well he just barely missed the bus, so this is his 'Nintendo redemption' or some shit, I don't know. Do we really fucking care about 'rules' now? As long as it's an iconic video game character and not some animu shit, I don't see any reason to complain. And while Cloud was never on, Final Fantasy has

It's still a shit choice. It'd be like picking Sora from Autism Hearts, even though it's a Sony franchise.

>>386993239
At the time, I heavily enjoyed it. I'm sure I put in close to hundred hours before I finally gave it a rest. I also really enjoyed the adventure mode and Taboo was a pretty cool boss. But looking back, it's really, really fucking slow compared to both 64 and Melee, random tripping does nothing but discourage movement, and Meta Knight is the most broken fucking character in the whole goddamn franchise. At least it had online multiplayer which I was extremely excited for, except it never came close to working. If Marvel vs Capcom 3's netcode is dial-up quality then Brawl was using a fucking telegram service. It's still perfectly playable, by all means, and it's not bad overall but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn't think of it as a low point in the series.
>>
>>386993702
Snake was a fine choice because Metal Gear for the NES is iconic even if it's the worst version of the game. I also like how they explicitly did not make him Solid Snake, just "Snake".
>>
>>386993956
That was a good choice, if he had to be in, but he was still a shit pick. Boktai is better than anything Metal Gear related, and is actually Nintendo.

As long as it's an iconic character and not some westaboo shit, I don't see any reason to complain.

My point is more along the lines of how far can the roster go. During Smash 4's development, I would have laughed if anyone suggested Crash or Spyro. Now, I'm not so sure. Hell, at least they got in a couple of GBA games.
>>
>>386994074
Yeah but the difference is that Boktai is a niche handheld series that only lasted a single generation. If you're going to argue that a Konami property other than MGS should have gotten in, you could at least argue Castlevania.
>>
>>386994206
Crash is actually a valid possibility now that the remaster was so successful, but Spyro has been so thoroughly buried under Skylanders that I don't think he could escape.
>>
>>386993956
>>386994074
Does no one remember that Metal Gear Solid was re-made exclusively for the GameCube? I mean, ok, the cutscenes are pretty goofy and the voice work is debatable but the game play works out alright, as long as you avoid using the completely optional first person view.
>>
>>386994215
The only reason Snake got in at all was because Kojima is Sakurai's butt buddy and Snake is his baby. Django is also his baby, and Nintendo has no reason to want to promote MGS, so Django would have been the better pick to pander to Kojima, while also repping a better character from a better series.

Castlevania would be legit hype but it would make Kojima pout.

Fucking Sonic got in despite being the literal mascot of Nintendo's biggest competitor for a decade. That leaves the sort of gaping hole that Crash and Spyro could just waltz right through.
>>
>>386993956
It's Solid. His stage is Shadow Moses and the secret Codecs have him talking to Otacon, Mei Ling, and Campbell.
>>
>>386994532
thing is, Sonic being Mario's rival in the industry actually made it MORE likely he would show up

especially given the fact Sega has dropped out of the console race ages ago and has since then been cooperating with nintendo on multiple occasions
>>
>>386994532
To be fair, SEGA had long lost that battle. The Dreamcast was officially dying when Smash Bros. Melee came out and several of Sonic's games had already come out on GameCube and GBA since before Brawl was even announced. By this point in time, he's fair game.
>>
>>386994206
I still seriously doubt Crash or Spyro will ever be added to Smash even if they're not owned by Sony.
>>
>>386992776
Delete.
>>
>>386994884
I would have guessed that they'd get in before Cloud. Hell, I would have guessed they'd get in before Ryu, which was also kind of a surprise. Seriously, all bets are off as far as what new third party characters could be introduced next. I'd be shocked if Bomberman doesn't make it in at this point.

Almost all the Brawl reveals were the hypest thing ever. I was so full of excitment watching those videos with the amazing orchestra. Wario, Metaknight, Snake and Sonic.

>>386989505
Snake is definitely the top of the top as far as reveals goes as many people already mentioned, it was the fact that nothing like this had happened before, especially with Nintendo. They were very selective with mingling their IPs with third party filth. This was long before Mario was chumming it up with Sonic for the Summer Games.

The only one that comes close is Cloud, because it wasn't based on anything other than: "who is the most famous character from that game series we haven't had an original title for on a Nintendo console since FFVI (Not including the FFTA games and other spinoffs)? Cloud? Whatever put him in."

Too bad by the time he was revealed most people were done playing Smash altogether.

This is the main thing that allows Robin's trailer to compete with Cloud and Snake's. It wasn't that big of a reveal for a character, but in terms of the community speculation, it completely smashed Gematsu out of the water and brought back community speculation in full force.

The pre-release hype is part of the fun for Smash and it's always a thrill to be apart of it.

yeah but those ports are just based on the arcade games, permitting how much leeway the system's limitations provide like how the gameboy version has less characters and god was it horrible to play

Somehow, the Snake reveal didn't hit me that hard. It wad cool, I thought, but that's it.

Megaman's reveal came on a time when Capcom was spitting on their fans after the cancellation of Universe, Legends 3 and the abomination that was bad box Megaman in SFxT. Watching him playing so faithful to the NES games was like a gift from God. And Cloud's reveal pretty much turned the unthinkable, the "what if Cloud was in Smash" into a reality. To ever see finally Link and Cloud in a game together clashing swords was a dream that had existed since the N64 times into a reality.

Honorary mention to the Mii Fighters. Tell me any other company that has their CEOs beating the shit out of each other in such a glorious way.

Sonic and Pokemon Trainer made me ridiculously hyped. I was 13 when Sonic was revealed, I think. Big time Sonic autist back then. Truth be told, though, my two guys just haven't made it in yet. I've been waiting years for Toad and Simon Belmont. Years and years of waiting will only make the reward that much sweeter.

Snake was the most pants-shitting, but Megaman was downright emotional.
>>
>>387008516
I had just come to terms with the fall from grace and ugly death of Megaman too. Legends 3 still hurts a bit, but that trailer made me all tingly and shit.

While Robin was nice, that entire day the only thing on my mind was how great washaving the Captain pummel those shitters.
>>
>>387001073
So what does Shulk existing, or that the proof of Chrom being considered before moving to Lucina, entail?
>>
>>387004217

Knd of a shame it kind of got overshadowed by pure Ridley shitposting.
>>
>>387005735
we never did get who got second or third or whatever though
>>
>>387009480
But they didn't move on to Lucina, they moved onto Robin.
>>
>>386990747
>>387008516
>>387008734

What if Capcom decided to take him away from the next Smash like Konami did with Snake? They are Megaman's legal guardians after all.
>>
>>387009814
My point is that there's a difference between outdated and not-true. Gematsu was outdated but was at one point accurate, to the point that only Chrom was the wrong entry in it.

Like, did "my good friend Shulk" ever mean to people when Shulk got revealed?
>>
Fucking leakers took all the fun out of Smash 4 reveals.

At this point it's safe to say anyone is allowed to join Smash. Hell didn't the head of XBox make an official tweet stating he wouldn't mind adding a character to the roster if Nintendo approached them? Banjo Kazooie is more of a reality these days than we originally though.
>>
>>387009930
Gematsu was never true. Look at the chain of events

Also

>outdated information
>Developers flat out say that roster was decided first and foremost
>>
>>387010195
anon there's like many interviews detailing why Chrom was an original pick until Robin and Lucina came along

there's a website that compile them, sourcegaming I think? go look up there, since it's pretty old

http://sourcegaming.info/2015/07/04/chromsmash4/

>wow a character anyone could have guessed

>>387010328
oh right, forgot about the Chorus Kids one, that one is their fault, still sticking to the outdated info

also you forgot that they stated Mii too, as well as Greninja then known as XY Pokemon (this one is actually backed up by Sakurai himself - Greninja wasn't even "Greninja" at that point but Sakurai saw the design and placed him in)

and yes, they already pick an initial roster, but stuff changes as time goes on
>>
>>387007490
yeah a select few

Most Mega Man fags know Snake's was the biggest of all time, because it literally came out of nowhere. Mega Man's was uplifting as fuck because of what Capcom was doing with him (raping his corpse).
>>
>>387010608
Nah, considering what Inafune was doing with MN9, it's more sugar dancing than raping

As far as future reveals go, there's only one character I could realistically think of that would cause almost as much shock, hype, and confusion as Snake's reveal did. Also, imagine the shitposting that would ensue

Manlets gotta dream, anon.

>>387000256
Pretty much this. Snake and Sonic were fucking mindblowing to me and the idea of three new Pokemon being in the game made me ridiculously hype. I remember being really fucking excited for Diddy and Dedede as well.

>Man punches the fucking shit out of a woman

What did they mean by this?

Its this or Snake. Objectively speaking.

>>386990747
Honestly? Box Art Mega Man was funny, but goddamn did they pick the worst possible timing for it.
You can't pull off tongue-in-cheek at the same time you're spitting on your fanbase.

It's fine. I got what I wanted.

It's different when a woman has the power to destroy a planet and is like a solid foot or two taller than the guy.
>>
>>386993489
My theory was that Cloud was the real Ballot pick, then after seeing how popular he was, they hit up SE to ask and they were okay and wanted him in right away, before they even thought to design him and boom, announced in November.

I think it was that way because Sakurai said in an interview with Nomura that he himself thought it strange to add Cloud, instead of a FF character from the Nintendo games, or even a newer character like Lightning, but apparently it was really easy to convince them since Nomura pretty much responded "It's Cloud in Smash, how could I refuse?"

I would both love and hate Reimu in Smash. Love because she's my 2hufu, hate because I fucking suck at the fighting games she'll likely be based from and everyone I know will expect me to main her.
>>
>>387012437
Hey she totally blew up:
Dark Aether
Phaaze
SR-388
That one Alimbic planet in Prime Hunters

By herself. Unless you count AI Adam from Fusion.

>>387012887
Fusion I assume the BSL knew in the case of a contagion outbreak nuking the station wold actually be a smart idea. But the pirates just seem to be stupidly suicidal.

>>387010906
>I don't believe these collection of articles despite all the sources it had, I'll believe internet memes

I bet you think Sakurai stated no clones too
>>
>>387010976
Lets be real, it'll probably be Alucard

Realistically, what Smash reveal would be much hyper than Snake's? I honestly can't think of one.

Seriously? Hah. Lets see what they do.

>Boring playstyle, looks like he plays like a faster Ike with a projectile. Only neat looking thing was Limit's gimmick.
>Midgard full of stupid gimmicks that completely halt or obstruct action

Cloud's trailer was pretty bland. Im ok with Cloud himself, hes a decent character, but he feels forced as hell in smash.

Literally nobody cared about Ashley in Smash until the Brawl website put her song up and autistic waifufags figured that meant she had a 100% chance of getting in.
