Dragon Quest's massive popularity is entirely exclusive to Japan.  It has always struggled to reach even a fraction of the same level of interest or sales in any other market.  It's successful enough in general, sure, but it's not even remotely close to the international, medium-defining juggernaut you're portraying it as.

I agree that it's much more likely they'll go with the face of the game before the less prominent fan-favorites.  That's why Three Houses got Byleth and not Claude or Hildegard.  Or why Sakurai had to wait until all of the important Mario characters were playable first before he could get away with adding Piranha Plant.

That being said, I can't help but think it's not going to be Spring Man.  Not because of the assist trophy aspect, but because I feel like if it was just him they wouldn't be acting so coy about it.  Going back to the Street Fighter example, think about if back in Sm4sh instead of just announcing Ryu, they showed a teaser saying "Street Fighter is coming to Smash Bros!  Who could it be?" and showed a picture of the entire SSF4 roster, then let people speculate for two months before announcing it was Ryu.  It'd be super weird for them to frame it as a big surprise only to lead into revealing the most obvious choice.

This is pure speculation on my part, but it occurred to me that Ribbon Girl might be a likely candidate because Ultimate has set a precedent of characters used for Mii costumes being turned into fully playable characters.  Inkling, K. Rool, and Isabelle all had Mii fighter skins in Sm4sh (and IIRC they still do) before they were playable in Ultimate.

Nintendo Direct today announced a non-specific ARMS character as the next fighter, out in June.

Spring Man is the first character to seed the idea of promoting assist trophies to playable status, all to lead up the big reveal that the final character in the game will be Waluigi.

This could be interesting.  I mean, an ARMS character in general is a great idea (I’m picturing Little Mac with range and an actual recovery), but all the most likely candidates are already spoken for.  So either it’s going to be some left-field rando instead of a main character again like Piranha Plant, or we’re about to see an assist trophy or Mii costume get promoted.

I'm not particularly versed in Machamp lore (if there is such a thing as Machamp lore) but their last two videos with Johnny Cage and Sindel would seem to indicate that Goro will take the L here.  Previous trends in their data imply that Mortal Kombat feats, while exceptionally violent, don't actually scale to particularly large amounts of power.

Gray is Fairy Tail's answer to Sasuke, but somehow manages to be even less memorable or well developed.  I read that entire series and literally the only thing I can remember about Gray is that he's a nudist.

Never even heard of Esdeath, so IDK what her deal is.

Where do you even put those? The collection I mean

On a deeply overburdened shelving unit.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

I'm thinking about getting some kind of wall display to put the Smash ones on and free up some space, but I'm waiting to see how Ultimate's select screen ends up looking with the full roster so I can plan for that.

Red XIII will only be a guest for certain sections and not a fully playable character. They wanted to spread out his character arc and give him time to develop.

That's a bit of a let down, but understandable.  He doesn't show up until right before the party escapes from Midgar, which is where the first part of the remake ends IIRC.  May as well hold off on fully implementing him until players actually have a decent opportunity to use him.

Now we're just gonna add some happy little Clouds.


So freaking close.  I just need one more and my Smash Bros amiibo collection will be 100% complete.

For absolutely no discernable reason, a single spirit from Warframe was added during the latest spirit board event.

Bump for release this week:



News kinda dried up on this one, but it looks like they ran through all the super obvious characters and then started filling out the roster with a bunch of oddball picks like Spring Mustachio, Sneck, and Crablante.  Suiryu, Lightning Max, Watchdog Man, and Garou are all slated for DLC.

Genos may be anime, but he's also the ultimate jobber

This is very true.  Genos does get Worfed on a pretty regular basis.  But at OPM levels of scaling, even being just the guy whose job it is to get merc'd to show how strong other characters are still makes him obscenely powerful.

He's also got durability on his side.  Genos regularly gets dismembered, chopped up, and cut in actual half, but still manages to put up a decent fight.  Rhodey would be comparatively super easy to kill if any of his tech failed in a similar way.

Episode's out:



Next battle is Genos vs War Machine.

Past Death Battle precedent says American comic book power scaling usually trumps flashy anime bullshit,  but One-Punch Man characters are in a league of their own when it comes to insane power levels so who knows.  My first instinct says that Genos' fully cybernetic body would give him the edge over War Machine's armor.  All he'd have to do is get  through the robot suit and get to the squishy regular guy meats inside.

To be perfectly clear, the article only says that "no future Smash Bros games are being planned at this time" and not "there are no plans to ever do another Smash Bros game."   Obviously the series will eventually continue, they're just not planning on a sequel to Ultimate any time soon.
