Holy cocks

 

Oh my god, this is amazing. Actual alternate costumes. Clever and cool ones, too. Mewtwo is back. Is this real? This can't be real, there are absolutely no sources.

 

Nope, Chuck Tumblr.

 

These are alternate costumes in Project M, a Brawl mod, except for the last pic; I assume photoshop.

 

+1 Tumblr, you really had me going. Keep the misinformation machine turning, oiled with laziness in researching further than a reblog.

Anyone else disappointed in this game's roster yet? I mean, I'm not really disappointed per se, just upset that they've barely announced anyone new yet. all of the surprising newcomers, of which there were three, were all announced right when the game was. Outside of that, everyone announced so far is just returning. Where's all the new characters?

I'm guessing they're doing it when it's closer to the release date. Or when they're not upstaging Animal Crossing or Pokemon or A Link Between Worlds.

Castlevania is a third-party software rite? I haven't seen very much demand for him either. You're the first I've heard mention him. So it's probably unlikely.

 

Also, it looks like there are five columns and rows, implying 25 characters total, at least, announced on the site. We've got 7 spaces left to fill. Brawl had 35 characters, so we'll see what's up. Maybe they'll add another two rows.

Konami is struggling big time. I don't see them surviving for much longer. Metal Gear can only keep them alive for so long.

They have Yugioh but I'm not sure what the situation is there. Konami is a huge deal in casino games and stuff, too. Or used to be. Idk.

I wouldn't call it a trend, but Nintendo seems to be absorbing/representing the forgotten or underrepresented game mascots like Sonic and Megaman. Smash Bros. feels like a good fit for both of them.

I don't think it's out of the question that Simon Belmont could be in the new games. Especially when you remember that Pit, Megaman and Simon Belmont were all on that one bad TV show together. I'm not saying that the show was foreshadowing Simon Belmont being in Nintendo games, but Megaman was in the same position as that character.

Megaman also has a way more famous status than simon. Then again, I think he's also better known to americans than fire emblem was when marth and roy were introduced in melee. I think Simon is currently somewhere in between megaman and fire emblem, and necro isn't the first person I've heard request him in the game, so it's entirely possible, but a long shot, I think.

I can't remember if I've mentioned this in the thread or not, but Pit actually had a trophy in melee, and unlike the appearances of so many other retro characters in that game, they actually bothered to model him in 3D:

And here's his trophy description:

 

 

The head of Palutena's personal bodyguards, Pit travelled near and far to gather Three Sacred Treasures that would help him defeat the evil goddess of darkness, Medusa, and free Palutena, the goddess of light. Pit couldn't fly with his little wings; only the Wings of Icarus let him take flight. Will Pit ever fight again?


I'm absolutely convinced that nintendo was planning on bringing him back for something before brawl. Maybe a gamecube game or something.

ACTUALLY, I just looked this up while I was making this post, and apparently pit actually was going to be in melee. He and the balloon fighter were both left out due to time constrictions though. It's actually very interesting to think about, if pit looked like this for his return to gaming. Or more importantly, what if Balloon Fighter is a playable character in the next game?

I don't think he is. The Villager uses balloons and waves his arms in an obvious reference to Balloon Fighter. I think it was even stated that it was inspired by Balloon Fighter.

I know Animal Crossing has balloons in it. The site explicitly made a connection to Balloon Fighter when they introduced him.

Oh, this is a Smash Bros thread now?

 

So yeah. Me and Double have talked at length about this: Yoshi is getting NTR'd out of the playable roster by Pit.

 

 

Exhibit A: Along with Bowser and Pit, seven of the original eight characters from 64 were announced from the beginning. Yoshi is the absentee, of course excepting the secret characters from that game.

 

Exhibit B: This artwork was posted on smashbros.com following the announcement of Mega Man.

You'll notice first here the allusion to Mega Man gameplay: Bowser in place of Dr. Wily at the top of the image, and EIGHT characters arrayed around Mega Man like the 8 Robot Masters appearing in each Mega Man game. This is where we really see the association: 7 original characters from 64, joined by Pit.

 

 

The theory is thus: Yoshi will be relegated to an Assist Trophy, or even a background character in a stage. Regardless, even if Yoshi is still included in the end, the fact remains that Pit is taking Yoshi's place in the franchise. But at what cost?
