I agree, OP. I'm so glad she took a full dev cycle because it means it cucked some literal who JRPG character out of the roster. I think her reveal was also perfect and people complaining are entitled babies who wanted to watch K.K. Slider get skewered by Ridley' tail for no other reason than "lol he died so edgy and HYPE!! XD".

Seeing the reaction really makes me hope we get another revevancy pick so all the Geno/Issac/Banjo/Skull Kidfags fuck off and remember they're not the only audience Smash appeals to. You got your fat lizards, fuck off.
Now I'm just waiting for non-Echo Octolings. It's just a matter of time at this point.

If there's even going to be a Kirby rep this time around, it better not be this fucker. Kirby's character potential greatly expanded with Star Allies and if the filler character becomes the only Kirby newcomer, I fear Kirby will respond by stagnating with its characters again.
Not that getting a new rep is even likely to happen, considering how much a piece of shit Sakurai is.

Abhorrent post. Isabelle was fine, but ARMS and Splatoon are the only new IPs worth adding and the former came out too late. I guarantee they picked more classics or relevant characters with long legacies because nothing new worth adding besides Splatoon was out since Smash 4 and the end of 2015. Also everyone is resigned to a Pokemon already.

I wouldn't mind if Thanos got into smash the same way he got into Fortnite. I think i'm the thread winner
>>
>>431576172
A dedicated wrestling moveset would be pretty fun for Smash Bros. Especially if he does classic heel shit. Incineroar is shown hitting Pokemon with chairs in his concept art, so I'm hoping that transfers into Smash Bros.
>>
>>431573343
I've wanted Isabelle to be in Smash since 4 and I am so happy she's in. Not only that, but I'm really surprised and pleased she's not an echo, or at least not entirely. They exceeded my expectations with her.
>>
>>431576172
It would be closer to Ganon + Bowser in execution because it's a wrestler heel. I really don't want the cat, but a lot points to it being in.
>>
>>431576141
I'd like Doomguy too.
However he's not a Nintendo property so he still falls under the 3rd party zone.
>>
>>431573343
That’s only unpopular on /v/. Everybody else loves the hell out of the little dog lady.
>>
>>431573343
People who are legitimately angry at Isabelle need to calm their fucking tits. For one, there are still more characters left. Secondly and most importantly, how fucking entitled are you? This game has over 70 fucking characters confirmed as of right now with more on the way. You're being a spoiled brat if you complain about the roster at this point.
>>
>>431576307
Sorry but Captain Falcon with chairs isn't enough to sell me on another humanoid grappler type when Pokemon has flying achors and rock dogs it can use as fighters. Incineraor is a very boring choice and if he gets in just proves TCPI will shill whatever they want without regard to what fans actually like.

Ok, that's pretty neat...

However then it begs the question, would Incineroar be the best character, or even the best pokemon to execute that moveset?
Some punch-out! characters could do that- and even some pokemon like Slaking could do it too right?

Fun fact: James Bond was one of the most requested characters for Melee. I don’t want him in, but if any non-video game character is getting in, he’s an okay choice.

Skull Kid is my most wanted character, but I'm glad they didn't announce a Smash character just for Smash in this direct. Animal Crossing fans have been waiting long enough and got cucked out of a game for the past five years, I'm fine with Smash's newcomer this time being a glorified trailer for an Animal Crossing game.
Also, most Smash fans don't realize how good they have it.

Did you take into account that nobody had an issue with Inkling? It's because Inkling's a unique fighter. Isabelle is an underwhelming semi-clone with the worst reveal trailer yet.
>>
I'm really happy Chrom's in, he was my favorite Awakening character
I hope Sakurai doubles down on boomer characters, since everyone from the past five years of Nintendo who should be in Smash is already in Smash
I think Mach Rider would be the best retro character
I think Tom Nook should've been in instead, or made an echo fighter, but Isabelle's not a bad addition. She was just poorly timed after a string of wide-appeal characters like Simon or Ridley
>>
>>431576861
>Would Incineroar be the best character, or even the best pokemon to execute that moveset?
Yeah. Nintendo doesn't have that many wrestling/heel characters. And Sakurai most likely asked for a Gen 7 Pokemon specifically. There's 3rd party characters that could pull it off pretty well, but they are literal never evers.

I want to disagree with you but I wouldn't be surprised if there are a lot of bandwagon zoomers, and that kind of hurts me a little. It downplays the genuine love some people have for the characters. Popular character picks are fine, but if the support isn't genuine then it falls apart and ruins it for everyone.

I don't think anybody's complaining about the overall quality and amount of content in the game (well, apart from mentally ill autists), they just feel like Isabelle had an underwhelming reveal and doesn't seem like an interesting character. It is what it is. Just as long as people aren't harassing Sakurai about it I think they have the right to praise and criticise whatever picks they want.

This right here is what my unpopular opinion in centered around. I've seen people use this emotional reasoning for years and my response to it every time is to roll my eyes. Sakurai and the rest of them are not our parents. They're selling a product to the masses not giving us a gift.

Look I like Sakurai because he is a talented man who has made really great games but I never understood how people can lionize him as this great martyr. I don't feel the need to come to his rescue and defend his honor from random complaints on the internet.

I refuse to support Smash Brothers until they get rid of Zero Suit Samus. That disgusting trash has done nothing but destroy Metroid for decades, turning it into glorified wank fuel. Sex fanservice is objectively a bad thing and has done irreperable damage to Samus and her IP.

>b-but the old games
I don't care. Take any instance of her being out of her suit, and throw it in the garbage. Remake every Metroid game if you have to. Just make Metroid about a cool bounty hunter killing monsters again, stop making her into a barbie doll who exists solely to give people boners.

I'm not Geno being in but I don't see really why he has such a dedicated following after all these. Sorry if I sound like relevancyfag but I genuinely don't understand how so many people can cling to a side character from an over 20 year old game. Sure he has a neat design and probably a lot of move set potential, but that's hardly exclusive to him. Then again, I've never played SMRPG, so maybe that's why I can't see it.

I know this is asking too much, but I hope that we can eventually get all the older stages back. Even Icicle Mountain and Rumble Falls.

I also think Sakurai should look into cut content for Smash. Both stages and characters. Ayumi, Heihachi, Excitebike, even Dixie as a Diddy echo. It'd be a fun way to cap off the whole idea of it being an anniversary of Smash history.

At this point it's out of sheer stubbornness and the fact that he was requested for so long. I kind of hope it happens even if I don't care about him, because /v/ has been whining about him a lot lately and people whining about never evers deserve to be unhappy when they get in.

Polls shouldn't be taken seriously. Nintendo does give consideration to popularity but a large part of it is introducing characters that hype the larger community, where-as Smash polls are significantly skewered towards a vocal minority that has the commonality of being Smash fans first and foremost, propelling a lot of characters who're neither actually popular nor appropriate for inclusion to the top.

Also only loosely related. Literally every Smash 5 reveal has been extremely obvious in hindsight at least if not clearly apparent to anybody who actually thought about who should get in instead of who could get in so far.
