    I think Sakurai has gone bonkers.

    Oh, wait. It's apparently a picture-a-day deal he's been doing with the team (using some development tools) that he's publishing on twitter.

    We're getting a Pokemon Direct this week, but I don't know if FP5 will be revealed there (if it is a Sword & Shield Pokemon).

    Gamzee Makara Let people enjoy things...

    As of the past year and a half, A Pokémon Direct one week results in a full Direct the next week.

    There's an update for upcoming Amibo compatibility coming soon.

    We're in the endgame now, boiz.

    Also, Devil May Cry is released and will make further releases on Switch. That removes Dante's creator-stated barrier to him being in Smash. Also, his English VA told us to watch next week on Thursday and a date in late February for Devil May Cry news.

    This helps Dante significantly in terms of speculation.

    *anti-speculation people hissss like vampires instantly*

    Arle Naja from Puyo Puyo, KOS-MOS from the XENO series, Doom Marine/Slayer/Guy from Doom, Geno from Super Mario RPG:Legend of the Seven Stars, Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia, Reimu from Touhou, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, a First-party rep and the Dragonborn from Skyrim remain front-runners in my list of likely characters.

    *More vampire hisssssing*

    I'm just excited for people to finally learn what HOME is, and the inevitable Full Direct next week likely announcing #5(And hopefully more)

    Well now I’ll be really surprised if we don’t get one of the Galarian starters as a fighter considering they can now use Gigantamax as a potential Final Smash.

    Please be Inteleon. Don't really care if we need Rillaboom just to fill in a Grass-starter slot.

  6. I'm going to press X to doubt on the Nintendo Direct next week, just because Pokemon had a Direct doesn't always necessarily mean Nintendo themselves are going to do a Direct to follow suit.

    They do a Direct each Business Quarter, one for Jan-Mar "Winter", two for Apr-Jun "Spring" due to E3, one in July-Sept "Summer" although mostly in Sept to hype up the holiday season, and one in Oct-Dec "Fall/Holiday" although they started to skip that because they don't focus on 3DS games anymore - games they would release in Feb-May.

    We had a Pokemon Direct following the Nintendo Direct last year specifically because since going international in 2013, GameFreak had announced the past two new generations in February.

    Not to mention, which GameFreak saying that Pokemon Home will release in February, and Sakurai said the Fighters Pass would last until Feb 2020, I'm willing to bet that we'd be more likely to get a Direct in February - We'll get a special message from Pokemon giving the exact day when Home will launch (likely Feb 27th) and we'll get FP#5 announced, then Sakurai will do a presentation on FP#5 after the Direct with a release immediately after.

    The newest amiibo figures are coming in less than two weeks.

    A Direct could happen right before or right when those figures release.
  8. Dark Samus and Richter release next week specifically. (Good use on saying amiibo figures instead of saying "amiibos")

    And they could also do a Direct a week later. I don't think Nintendo ever really cared about the craziness of amiibo collectors, especially the ones who get bent out of shape that there was a crease in the packaging.
  9. AuraChannelerChris

    AuraChannelerChris "And just what are you starin' at?"

    Eh, I'm using the amiibo part just because reminding people about them in a Direct seems very marketable. It may or may not be a good hint for an incoming Direct.

    And that's how Astral Chain's chances for being represented take a hit.

    (RE may have gotten a hit, but it still can use more images to use for a DLC board.)

    Two of the Astral Chain spirits are as follows.

    Astral Chain protagonist (Male): Chrom: Ace
    Astral Chain protagonist (Female): Zero Suit Samus: Ace

    So who do think it will be? Most Youtubers I’ve noticed are predicting Shenmue or Dante with a couple suggesting Crash Bandicoot or Travis Touchdown. I personally think it won’t be any of those four but something really unexpected like Cadence from Crypt of the NecroDancer or even Tempo from HarmoKnight to represent the rhythm based genre.

    I want Sora as much as the next person, but I simply don't see it ever happening, because Disney and Square. Enough said... Instead, I hope it's a character no one expects or asked for. Keeps things fresh and surprising. Sure it'll cause the whole 'we got a character literally nobody asked for' thing to stir back up, but like I said... Besides, in my opinion, if it IS a character that everyone wants, it'll just be like 'oh, he/she's in now. Happy people? Next!' Basically, the hype kinda ruins the surprise, so I hope the reveal counters that again like they did with Terry.

    I don’t think Square would have a problem with Sora but Disney would. The company is extremely strict over licensing its characters and property. The only character co-created by Walt Disney himself that could have been used in media in any form was Oswald the Lucky Rabbit Who was in the public domain for decades and mostly forgotten about until Disney bought back the rights to the character. Disney is extremely difficult to work with for crossovers and honestly it was a miracle we even got the first Kingdom Hearts game.

    I'm thinking a Bandai Namco representative, like Jin Kazama from Tekken or KOS-MOS from Xenosaga.
  19. Captain Jigglypuff

    Captain Jigglypuff Leader of Jigglypuff Army Staff Member Moderator

    I think that is very likely. Bandai Namco pretty much is the only major developer to be part of Smash Ultimate to be missing a second representative for the company. Nintendo has the the most, Sega has Sonic and Bayonetta, Rare has Banjo Kazooie with Diddy and K.Rool being formerly owned by the company, Square has Hero and Cloud, Konami has Snake and the Belmonts, And Capcom has Ryu, Ken, and Mega Man. All Bandai Namco have is Pac Man.

    I'm personally hoping for Crash or Dante but I have no issue with anyone as I got my dream character in.
