Meddle not in the affairs of dragons... for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

I'm hoping when they say "five new characters" they mean five NEW characters, and not try to pass off guys like Ice Climbers or Snake as new just because they weren't in Smash 4.

Some potential guesses:

A new Pokemon (Dedicueye or Mimikyu), Ridley, Spring Man, Simon Belmont, and Banjo-Kazooie?

A good mix of characters from old franchises, newcomers, and third party characters.

Charizard went from a Pokeball summon in the first two games, to one-third of a lovely team, to his own man. If a not-a-dragon-type could do it, surely a dragon could.

I've seen it.


Seriously speaking, I'm at a loss at who the new five could be. We've already got all the big reps for each Nintendo franchise Smash 4. I feel like we've ran out.

And each Smash game since Brawl has started by announcing their left-field third party character, so odds are Smash 5 will likewise have an insane third-party pick. But who will it because? Because we've already got the big names like Mega Man, Pac Man, Ryu... I can't think of any other huge third party characters they can add that'll be as huge and representative of gaming.

Other than, of course, Doom Guy. And since we've had both Doom on the SNES and on the Switch...

5 new chars = Popo, Nana, Popo and Nana, Zelda + Sheik (both in 1 char!), Samus + ZSS

There's a reason noone requests nintendo chars anymore unless they're D-listers. The only B-list nintendo char that hasn't gotten in as a char is Toad. Every other prediction is crap like Sora, Goku, random space marine chars, other fighting game chars, and humble bundle indy game chars from games half the people who bought them havent installed yet.

NO.

Just wait until this thread has 200 new posts instead of just 50. That's your sign something happened.

Aston posted:

Well, that reminds me. Crash Bandicoot is coming to the Switch. That's a possibility.

But, and this is a big but, although Rare is owned by Microsoft, the big head of Rare said he'd absolutely love having a Rare rep in Smash. So Banjo Kazooie is another big possibility.
