Considering Nintendo will probably give us that so they can resell the Smash 4 Mii costumes.Who do you realistically expect? Who do you personally want? Didn't include other characters as they're less likely.
Doomguy and Artorias
Here's your capcom rep
Ideally, Dante and Heihachi. They especially deserve it after being stuck in PSAS.
>capcomnoNamco will get Chosen Undead and SNK will get Marco/Fio
>>466069979We’re getting Travis Touchdown and Crash Bandicoot
>>466069979Kazuya has a better moveset potential than Heihachi
Heiachi is basically a lock in>Mii costume last game>Sakruai said was considered for base 4 but had problems coming up with a moveset (Playstation Allstars came out after 2012 showing he can be done in 2D)>Namco still only has 1 rep yet worked on Smash more than all the other third parties.>Tekken is huge overseas yet has a decent west following
>>466069979This should be the Capcom rep.
>>466070648Rajang or Brachydios would be unbelievably based
Last time Sakurai sealed the deal with Cloud, what characters would come close to that moment?Dante?
>>466071037Honestly, Goku. No other character would break the Internet as much and cause so much joy but also so much hate, flame wars and arguments.
Heihachi with a Kazuya echo so Namco is brought up to 3 reps like some of the other companies.And then either Leon or Dante. Both expected / wanted.
>>466071037He's already sealed the deal with Banjo. Whatever comes next will probably disappoint.
>>466069979The only one that makes sense is someone from Monster Hunter. Even tho Viewtiful Joe costumes would be fantastic. >>466070293Any RE protag not named Chris is welcome.
>>466071037Something really popular, and I think it cannot be achieved unless it had a fan campaign behind it like Banjo or Ridley. To be honest, the reaction from Cloud wasn't the same than the one we had from Snake. Modern vidya protagonists aren't that memorable, at least not enough to make people lose their shit if they get included or not. Other than that, I don't know, Lebron James?
>>466069979The next two reps will be Amaterasu and The Prince from Katamari.
>>466071037Sora, Goku, Dante would be decently up there.
Phoenix Wright and T-elos.
>>466069979There's still no FPS rep pr indie rep, so I would want Doomguy and Reimu. Doomguy is big in the West and Reimu is big in the East. Perfect representation.
The only correct namco rep choice
>>466069979Dante and Chosen undead is the fucking dream. I'd only be okay with Heihachi as a base character or if he's actually really fun, but even then I still wouldn't ever main him. Kos-mos, Ameratsu and Pheonix Wright are also all better for base roster than DLC.
>>466069979The Capcom rep is Rathalos because they don't get a rep, they get a boss battle.The Namco rep is not Heihachi because they probably would rather reuse the Mii costume.
>>466074414only if they use the chibi wanpaku graffiti version
>>466069979I want a Sony rep.
New theory.The two videos we got for the DLC newcomers were directly following events of previous videos: Banjo followed K. Rool's scene, and The Hero happens during the second half of World of Light (meanign that it happens after Galeem's first defeat since we see Darkhon).The characters revealed also followed a theme: Banjo was revealed along a Rare create character (K. Rool), and the DQ hero fought the darkness (DQ is heavily themed around the themes of light vs dark).If they decide to follow this trend and keep reusing assets, here's what kind of newcomers we could expect (there can only be two, but here are four likely scenarios):Isabelle, Inkling, Joker and PP didn't have proper trailers, so they are not included:A)Following the Ridley and Samus fight, a character sci fi themed, possibly a hunter or one used to fight aliens and the like, saves the day.B)Following Simon entering Dracula's Castle, someone used to deal with paranormal events or different kind of "scary" monsters either helps Simon or saves him.C)Follow Incineroar defeating Ken, a character specialized in boxing, wrestling, or martial arts come and defeats Incineroar or at least fights him.D)Following The Hero fighting Darkhon's puppets, this character would fight both Galeem and Darkhon's minions. Probably a powerful character used to deal with gods and the like.
>>466069979Gene from godhand
>>466070579They couldve used Kazuya or Jin if they wanted a tekken rep. Honestly I doubt they’re gonna add any of them at this point
>>466070391If Metal Slug makes it then Advance Wars need to make it
>>466076595Based but nevereverpilled
>>466074793>The Capcom rep is Rathalos>ignoring Ken
>>466076321>jill valentine follows simon's trailer>doomguy follows ridley'sThis would actually be really fucking cool
>>466076321-That Hunter from Metroid DS helps Samus (Sylux?).-Choosen Undead teams up with Simon defeating Dracula with Jolly Cooperation. / Alt. a Resident Evil Rep kills zombies and Draculas Minions [Dante may work too]-Akuma/Heihachi beats Incineroar with raging fists, that's it.
>>466076321Doom is a no brainer for the first case.
>>466069979>CapcomThere's more than enough Capcom representation and if anyone came it would be Phoenix because he's the only character that exclusively appeared on Nintendo consoles for a good long while AND has never had a game not on a Nintendo console.>inb4 Joker means anybody can get in90% of SMT games are Nintendo exclusive, just because Atlus pulled a Cloud by having their most recognizable character get in doesn't change this.I really don't give enough of a shit about the most viable Bandai Namco characters. They're all boring to me.
>>466069979you're getting Doomguy and Crash, your mii costumes will just be released separately
>>466076321>A)Following the Ridley and Samus fight, a character sci fi themed, possibly a hunter or one used to fight aliens and the like, saves the day.
Leon and Geralt
>>466076321>C)Follow Incineroar defeating Ken, a character specialized in boxing, wrestling, or martial arts come and defeats Incineroar or at least fights him.Incineroar has no gender differences and should always be referred to as it or they unless it is otherwise referred to as either gender which the Incineroar in smash is not.
>>466069979I want Kos-Mos and Jill (Morrigan being a pipedream)I expect either Heiachi or Nightmare/Siegfried (way to similar and iconic to work them both somehow) for the Namco side, with Chosen Undead having a decent chance.From Capcom, I do still haves hopes for Jill to work alongside Leon like the DQ heroes, heck, add Chris too while you are at it. But Dante is also having a strong chance, and heck, Monster Hunter is also likely. This is a hard one, cause both Namco and Campcon have such a strong library. I will bet for Resident Evil, most likely Leon, though having Jill, Chris and Clare as alts is not out of the question. From Namco, I could go either Heiachi or Nightmare, they are for me the most likely, with, Dark Souls having a strong chance too, but still dubious.
>>466070534We can do that argument for so many important side characters in almost all the franchises in Smash right now, but Heiachi is the face of Tekken by a long shot, you can argue Siegfried or Nightmare for SC, but not Heiachi for Tekken, so is naive to expect anyother character to represent Tekken outside Heiachi.
>>466079385>SMT excuseExcept SMT isn’t referenced in Smash, only Persona is.
>>466079385We are working on the Mii costume theory here, I know, Smash and theories usually go wrong, but hey, Box theory was just as lame and predictable an turns out to be true.Granted, the geno costume has to come back with the Hero for the Theory to actually wors, but in the meantime we can especulate who among the possible Namco and Capcom reps can get it, which is not a small list after all.Still, with Resident Evil, Monster Hunter and DMC still in the running, I just don't see Phoenix having an actual chance, specially if Sakurai is saying the true in regards moveset having the final saying to include a character (Phoenix moveset on MVC was awkward as hell, and it doesn't work for Smash anyway, in Smash it would be an even more awkward version of Wii Fit Trainer)
>NamcoDunno.>CapcomArthur from GnG.
>>466082773>Anon doesn't know
Heihachi will stay a mii costune and they'll add Nightmare for sureNoone is going to expect it.
>>466082773Not him, but this is lust like with the only references to FF we have being from VII. Persona is part of the Megami Tensei series, specially V now that the clasic demons are back.
>>466083283Haven't played SC in years, you think they will add Siegfried like with the Heroes of DQ, or they to different now for that to work? I do rather have Nightmare over Siegfried, but for what I remember, the both were to similar and iconic to not have them both.
>>466079385>would be Phoenix because he's the only character that exclusively appeared on Nintendo consoles for a good long whileWhy does no one remember him?
>>466084441>The best game in the series was exclusive to the genesis>The revival it got was exclusive to the PSPWhy don't you remember his games?
If the whole mii costume theory is true, then on the Capcom side we'll get a RE character, not so sure what we'll get on Namco's side.
>>466085263>GenesisSuper Ghouls N Ghosts says hi.Plus the famous NES version of Ghosts n Goblins.
>>466087362But that means it wasn't exclusive or had all it's entries on a Nintendo system like Phoenix Wright, which is what the anon was saying and.what you quoted?
>>466084441>Simon is in trouble trying to slay Death>Arthur shows up and shield slams Death right in the skull>"Arthur >pulls up his shorts"would be pretty kino
>>466088159Just clarifying that the Genesis version is neither the best or most popular.
>>466083715Nightmare will be the face. In smash terms theyre hitboxes and designs seem too differnt. Mabey it could work since siegfriend was just an alt for him in soul calibur 2.However if that 2 extra dlc charecates thing was right i could see us getting an echo.
>>466088829Kachou said it was the best so it's the best. Fucking law man.
I would want Monster Hunter and AgumonI realistically expect Phoenix Wright and Lloyd Irving
>>466089015Now that i think about it siegfried could totally be an alt but he would just have to look like in soul calibur 2 with his jacked up monster arm.
>>466082258Heihachi was in Playstation All Stars which also had Raiden, since Smash has Snake, Kazuya (the original protagonist of the first game) is a possibility.
>CapcomAmmy or Phoenix>NamcoHaseo
>>466071605What would cause the biggest shitstorm would be the Goku of the Goku & Chao spirit, he is also a Nintendo character
>>466080861Why are so many people okay with Geralt but not Goku? Goku is from a manga and Geralt from a book. He is originally not a video game character.
>>466069979I fucking hope it's lloydplease nintendo
>>466093863THIS Geralt is from a videogame, just like Dracula from Castlevania is not Dracula from Bran's Stoker, or Medusa from Kid Icarus is not the clasic Medusa.Goku is Goku from the manga and anime Dragon Ball, not matter how you handle him. Even Batman or Spider Man have more videogame merits as characters than Goku.
>>466069979I would love if Agumon and Amaterasu were the last characters, But I understand they're nothing but unreachable dreams.Dante, Phoenix Wright, Morrigan, Joe, MH, Nightmare and KOS-MOS would be really cool as well. I not too familiar with the rest. Except for Goku, but he isn't vidya
>>466095747Is this really how it works with Geralt? Are you sure?
>>466098209the author of the books himself has even distanced of the games, salty as fuck for not getting half of it's profits (his fault, always ask for royalties kids), and telling everyone that those games don't represent his books.Saltiness from the author aside, the Witcher games still have their own entity, the Books are not ilustrated after all, and the old european TV show is low budget as hell, so everything on the games my be based in the books, but it's made and design by it's own team of artist, so they may be the canon look of the games, but aren't the canon look of the books, if that makes sense. The are more examples, but the point is that the Witcher videogame franchise is far from, lets say, a licensed game of Harry Potter at this point.
>>466099754Well, oky then. I guess he counts
>>466069979Personnal pick:>CapcomLeon or Viewtiful Joe, but I wouldn't be dissapointed by Phoenix Wright>NamcoLloyd or Klonoa Plz
As the second biggest Bandai Namco franchise, Digimon will enter with Agumon.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest-grossing_media_franchises
>>466100578How many cameos did Digimon get in lesser crossovers like Project x Zone and Namco x Capcom? Actually, how many note worthy crossovers has Digimon ever have to begin with?
>>466100804So what?WTF is this changing?So you love some franchises that are used like garbage in any shitty crossover possible. Great! Congratulations.
>>466071037Unironically Waluigi. Opening the whole Assist Trophy pandora box, and people have memed him to death already.Either that or Sora.Outside of realistic choices, I'm guessing Heavy would be that too, but I'm sure most smash players don't really care that much about TF2. Maybe Gordon Freeman instead I dunno
>Leon/JillReasonable chances, very popular franchise and there are no horror genre characters playable in Smash yet>DanteI'd say his chances are pretty big, but there are some people saying he got deconfirmed>PhoenixI don't think he has much of a chance, unless there are multiple fans asking for him, he's not gettin in.>MorriganHer franchise is small, but she's actually incredibly iconic, plus there's MVC, Has a good chance>AmmyI love her, but she's a never ever>MonhunRathalos is already in the game representing the franchise. There's noway we're getting the Hunter as DLC>Viewtiful JoeNever ever>Klonoalol>AgumonHis franchise is huge, and he has great moveset potential, but you don't see Digimon crossing over with anything. Low chances>LloydGenuinely no idea>Chosen UndeadI say pretty big chances Souls is a popular franchise>NightmareAnother unfortunate never ever>HeihachiBig chances. Would be nice to see him and Ryu together again>KOS-MOSas far as I know, she's a pretty popular choice>GokuNot vidya
>>466101121The point, Bandai Namco doesn't care for Digimon as a videogame franchise, they just use it a license. They don't use it to represent themselves, nor put it alongside their classic IPs, and it's not gonna happen.
>>466101950Oh , "not gonna happen"Just like Banjo, and Cloud, and Bayonetta, and King K. Rool, and RidleyRight?
>>466069979You forgot Chun-li.
>>466102168Glad you mention Banjo! Your whole argument is how well Digimon sells, and how recognizable it is. How well did that turn out for Steve?
>>466102263I want Chun-Li, but even if we ignore the Spirits argument, we are not getting a third Street Fighter character when Capcom has still so many IPs to include.
>>466102168Just give up, mate
>>466069979More anime swordsmen
>>466103469... I wouldn't oppose to this two, if I am honest.
>>466103193I'm retarded and I don't understand this. Why is Ganondorf there?
Capcom would have to me RE since its their only major franchise on Nintendo.Namco probably wont get anything else just because they have no one.
>>466069979Here's your Namco rep, bros.
>>466103193shouldn't jigglypuff (rollout is technically an elemental move) and falcon be in the same space as Ken and Bowser?
>>466104040All of the major Namco IPs has presences on Nintendo, even if not recent, that didn't stop Banjo or Simon. Sakurai already acknowledge both Tekken and Tales of while working on four, and we have to add Dark Souls, Soul Calibur, Xenosaga and other games, both Retro and Current to that list.
>>466069979I'm going to presume that Nintendo's going to go with at least one 'waifu' choice to try and drag in those types of weebs.I think Jill's a little too close to Joker's niche in being "realistic gun' (Feel free to BTFO me with moveset suggestions that don't use guns, though), and as much as I wanna see Darkstalkers, I don't think Nintendo's going to add a succubus to Smash. So that only leaves the Namco waifu, Kos-mos. I could easily see her happening since she's kinda the crossover bike of the company, plus would probably shut up Rex fans as well. As for Capcom... Phoenix or Dante would be my guess.
>>466105048For Jill, I can point to you her moveset in MVC games, in the original she has all the wacky cartoony use of her guns, explosives and zombies, while in 3 she has all the acrobatic meele options for RE5. So you can make a perfect moveset for her to fit in Smash an be unique enough (heck, I never though I would give RE5 acutal credit, but thanks to what it did to Jill, now Jill and Weswer are the RE characters that make the most sense for a Smash Moveset)As for Morrigan being a Succubus... dude, Nintendo added Bayonetta. Still, I would love Morrigan to make it, but unless Capcom announce a surprise revival at EVO, there is no way she makes it over RE, DMC or MH.I do want to have hopes for Kos-Mos, but just like Morrigan, I don't see Xenosaga imposing itself over Tekken, Soul Calibur or Dark Souls, though I would love to be wrong.In any case, Jill (being and Alt for Leon, to be realistic here, I may argue in favor of her moveset, but Leon is Leon), is the waifu with the higher chance to make it into Smash at this point.
Almost already in:>MorriganVery probable:>Monster Hunter>Leon>Jill>DanteMaybe:>KOS-MOS>Phoenix>Lloyd>Chosen Undead>HeihachiProbably not:>Agumon>AmaterasuNEVER EVER:>Viewtiful Joe>Klonoa>Nightmare>Goku
>>466102381Yeah , so let's mention Dragon Quest now.The second biggest Square Enix franchise.Same case with Digimon.
>>466107161>morriganlel, mickey mouse has a better chance
>>466107217Not him, I'm a huge digifag as well, man. It's not happening
>>466107740No he doesn't. Mickey isn't a video game character
>>466108013yet, has a better chance than morrigan
>>466107217Are you really comparing Digimon with Dragon Quest? Let me change subject. Digimon is good franchise in media, as a videogame franchise is mediocre at best, and Bandai's knows it. You can look the reviews now, and the games with the higher notes get a Seven at best (actually, I think the most well recived one ever got a 7,5).In all their events, they promote the hell of their other IPs, like Tekken or Soul Calibur and Dark Souls, while with the Digimon they act, "Oh, yeah, we have a new Digimon game, over there with the other Anime games we made". Even God's Eaters and now that Code Vein game get more promotion (and Budget) from Namco than the Digimon games. Namco doens't wants to promote itself with Digimon, , and Nintendo has next to not interest in the Digimon IP.This are far from my most wanted Namco reps, but it's just naive that any character not from Tekken, or Soul Calibur has a chance, at best Tales Of or Dark Souls, but no one else. And I speak as the crying Xeno fan.
>>466107837You call yourself a "digifag"?Shut up.
>>466108385>If you think Agumon has no chance of getting in you aren't a Digimon fan
>>466076321>Following the Ridley and Samus fight, a character sci fi themed, possibly a hunter or one used to fight aliens and the like, saves the day.>The trailer has Monster Hunter get a speical quest to take down Ridley
>>466109136disney using their fuck everyone powers and use capcom as way to get mickey in smash
>>466109136He is just saying that Morrigan has no chance, the argument is that even Bugs Bunny would have a better chance. I disagree, but that's the idea.
>>466109361>>466109382She's pretty iconic. Everybody knows her because of MVC and porn
>>466109382Duck Dodgers would be pretty cool, tho.
>>466069979>a new Capcom repnot so sure about that one, chief. We already have Mega Man, Ryu, and Ken
Do Tamagotchi's even count as Video Games?
>>466089461If JIll isn't as cute as she is in MvC then she CANNOT be in
>>466110327Obviously. Why wouldn't they? And they're called Digital pets.
>>466069979>MorriganPlease kill yourself
>>466112410What's wrong with Morrigan?
>>466076321A) DoomGuyB) Choosen Undead / Leon C) someone from Rhythm Heaven / HeihachiD) Dante / Reimu
>>466081382it doesn't fucking matter trannygo dilate
