Smash Bros. Ultimate comes out tomorrow, but that's not the only thing. Their extra cash grab, the 5 mystery characters DLC pack become available for purchase at launch. With all of the controversy going on with deconfirming spirits many people are afraid that the five choices are going to be very underwhelming. That is why the first DLC announcement coming tonight should knock it right out of the park. But what one character would bring the best results? I think it is a character that would make both boomers and zoomers rejoice as a whole, like Sora. Who do you think would be the most optimal first announcement?
>>441843165As much as I would like Sora, The Mouse is not gonna let it happen
syluxrequested for a long time + perfect shill rep
Honestly, I'm cool with whatever. No matter who gets added it's going to end up being someone who SOMEONE will be overjoyed at seeing, and that's good enough for me.Personally I'd prefer characters that make me happy though.
>>441843296In actually so torn on this fact. I think it comes down to if any new KH games are coming to the switch Sora is in but if not he has no chance.
>Sora gets announced.>Surprise! The Switch is also getting the Core 3 Kingdom Hearts Final Mixes later on in 2019!
>>441843296If Disney allowed any crossover they should pull a Negan and just put Mickey in Smash
>>441843165The only character left that I kind of want is Monster Hunter. Honestly though there's so many fucking characters at this point that I hardly care, there's plenty that I like
>>441843165wait, so tonight they are going to announce the first DLC? who said that?
>I think it is a character that would make both boomers and zoomers rejoice as a wholeNot even the filthy clickbait YouTubers are touching on the high probability of UT making it in; Nintendo showcasing Indies in the game period, Toby nodding off the game in Delta Rune while increasing his connections with Nintendo VIPs in general. It's the most obvious thing ever and the tale goes under the radar.
>>441844627Literally who would be in smash anon?
>>441844356Some conglomerate Game Awards Show thing happening tonight has a very high probability of revealing a DLC some time during the show. It's just speculation, but from a business standpoint, there's really no reason not to reveal one of your cards at the last second to make sure that people will put faith/dollars in Soccer Eye.
>>441845205game awards show? why would they reveal it there? i never watched it.
>>441845412>why would they reveal it there?Because Smash Bros is a game that's about to be released?https://thegameawards.com/
>>4418431652B has better chance to get in than Sora
Sora would be great. He could have a diverse moveset.>Special attack (Ars Arcanum etc.)>Drive forms (Similar to switching moves with Shulk)>Magic Attacks (Reflega as a shield or Firaga as a projectile) >Roxas as an Echo character
>>441845773isn't it just awards for past games? i don't know this shit
>>441843296Why does everyone say this? They let Wreck it Ralph in a fucking SEGA racing game.
>>441846276wasn't sonic already a part of wreck it ralph though?
>>441844627I think Sans really does have a shot, and would sell well.
>>441846276Because of Nintendo's deal with Universal in theme parks and animated movies, its being perceived that Disney and Nintendo are now actively competing against each other.
>>441846105>special attack ars arcanum and drive formsThat would just be a boring Marth/Shulk combo, though. It's be better if they mix all his games into one like Snake. Give him something similar to SSF2 where spells cycle out as casted through a command deck on B though less shitty, Side-B being something like Finishing Leap to aid in combos, shit like that.
>>441846276That was a deal for Sonic to be in Wreck it Ralph
>>441846171All award shows only really exist to make advertisers money. It's the perfect time to tease new shit when you've drawn in an audience that is guaranteed to be interested in the medium.
>>441846447>>441846842Bowser was in Wreck-it-Ralph too, and showed up on screen longer than Sonic did. Even if we know Mario himself isn't appearing in WiR2, there's no way in hell they haven't contacted Nintendo about cameos.
>>441846915alright. i hope sora gets in then.
>>441847158Bowser isn't in Wreck It Ralph 2 either. Nintendo's Universal/Illumination deal aside, Disney probably didn't want Nintendo breathing down their necks again what with the whole "Bowser drinks his coffee in this very specific manner" thing.
>>441847158Sonic had a speaking role at least
>>441843165I think a lot of people are sleeping on Dragon Questit's not really popular here but its normie tier in japan and has huge selling power over thereplus having a smash character would be good promotion for the series in the west
>>441843318>requested for a long timeLiterally no one has mentioned him until he was one of the characters with no spirit
>>441848158The music composer is one of the worst people out there when it comes to distributions and considering that the switch becomes a music player with smash there’s no way he’s letting it happen. He literally has formed copyright protection agencies for music. He literally left DQ11’s music as dogshit in game so he could sell the orchestra version as a side product.
>>441848158The clickbaiters are pointing at Dairy Queen. I guess is relevant but I just hope he's at least more interesting than Cloud.
QUICKWHAT 5 SONGS SHOULD SORA COME WITH IF HE GETS INHARDMODE: NO RAGE AWAKENED
>>441848528It's not like the situation with FF music is much better. DQ's main theme would be enough. But yeah I also think that any DQ rep should have been part of the main game, it won't sell dlc as much as other characters.
Why the fuck did they not reveal any of the DLC characters while making the season pass available for pre-purchase? This is exactly what happened to previous games like Hyrule Warriors
>>441849137A glorious remix to Hand-in-Hand.
I don't care for smash at all really, but why do people insist characters like Sora shouldn't be in comparison to some literally whos?
>>441849137>Simple and Clean instrumental>Wave of Darkness>Roxas Theme>Vanitas Theme>A battle remix for Dearly Beloved
>>441849260japan would buy it in droves
>>441850219Because people have an irrational hatred for KH on this board, for some reason. Probably because it came about at a time where Disney was (and still is) going full retard, but the series itself is one of the few good choices they've made since this era started.That, and falseflaggers/shitposters.
>>441849260No the only reason why SE still has him employed is because he literally won’t sell the rights to any of his songs.
>>441851024Is Dairy Queen still relevant in Japan? I know that it was more popular than Final Fantasy until 2010 but that it couldn't possibly still be that hype could it?
>>441843296Why though? Is it not good marketing to have your character in a highly popular game?
>>441851238His music is a very integral part of the series for any old fan of it. Might be what keeps new fans away but it is what keeps the old ones that buy it in Japan. Just like Toriyama's art, it is what gives the series part of its identity.His only problem is that he is a complete jew so the rights to any of the songs might be very expensive, but for the right price he might do it. Only question is if that's worth it or not. Looking at even FF's deal with music, I think its very very unlikely.
>>441851202not gonna lie, sora in smash bros (implemented well) would go along way towards me buying the game.
>>441851272After FFXV which Japan called "westernized trash", its waaay more relevant than anything Final Fantasy.

>>441848528SHITI JUST GOT DQ11 on the steam sale, is this why the game has been a good 9/10 except the fucking 0/10 music.
>>441852517Gotcha. I wonder if SE's having a shitty fiscal year? Probably not but they deserve to suffer after being too unfit for Uematsu.
>>441852897That reminds me of my opinion for the Black Bullet animu. kek
>>441852919They are. It's most likely due to their shitty marketing honestly. DQXI had barely any advertisement before its launch and then you have the absolute failure that is Tomb Raider which was on sale two weeks after launch. Then barely anyone knows that Just Cause 4 came out this week.Only actual "success" this year was Octopath which performed way better than expected, but of course the only main reason for that is that Nintendo was in charge of the marketing.The only game that I've seen SE give any effort in advertisement this year is KH3. If that was a flop (doubt it will be though), they would likely go bankrupt.
>>441853447And then they're being stingy with their representation in Smash. But the Japanese and their local pride is deep rooted. It would be a real tragedy if KH3 fails but the only way that would happen is if Sony's recent bad decisions outweigh the game's quality.
>>441854497>believing a jew egg
I don't think Sora will get in Smash, too much fucking around with Disney licenses.
>>441854497Yeah get that shit up outta here.
>>441846823I never got this, when has Disney been known for videogame adapted movies and why would Nintendo have a theme park in Disney World when they arent owned by them
>>441846823>perceivedso non sense then.
>>441843824This but in opposite order
>>441854497So if Vergeben is to be trusted, it's either Crono, Sephiroth or a DQ character.If it's going to be revealed at VGA, it has to be Sephiroth.
>>441855867Dairy Queen is more relevant than FF7 because that remake will forever be a myth.
>>441849137The EncounterGigabyte MantisFuture MastersDeep DropA medley of Traverse Town and Twilight Town's battle/non-battle themes
>>441855008Disney has had a number of attractions based on shit they don't own over the years and they almost made a deal with Nintendo back in the 90s until the live-action Mario movie fucked everything up (Hollywood Pictures was one of Disney's various distribution arms).It's just that they've spent the last few years buying out a lot of the outsider IP they've represented in the parks what with Star Wars, Muppets, and Avatar.
>>441854970>vergeben's most trusted leaker>confirmed by smashboards admins to be actually linked to higher ups so no low life printer guy like in the shitty grinch leak.>Actually giving some good contenders and not literal whos like Geno or license hells like Sora.
>>441855313I mean it makes about as much sense as the "Sora's gonna totally be in Smash because Disney XD's gonna have some Nintendo esports show for kids" argument people keep making.
>>441852897Make sure you put in the orchestra mod for the love of god
>>441855867>>441856040It honestly makes the most sense for Sephiroth considering the rival theme smash ultimate has and not to mention FF7 is coming out on the switch in 2019.>Some speculation says SE wanted cloud as DLC again>SE theoretically may have Compromised on hiding all FF7 stuff behind a different paywall but Cloud is in for "everyone is here"Seems legit
>>441856475i think the argument is that sora is a very popular character and disney is fine with video game crossovers.
