    Now I know Smashboards already exists, but I think Smash can still be discussed here. With that out of the way. What do you think they are not showing on purpose that you'd want to see?

    That hidden menu option. I personally don’t care about because I’m gonna get it anyway. Also can’t wait for those few more fighters to be revealed.

    I know they are hiding alternate costumes for characters that already have been revealed. Don't tell me they suddenly took out Mario's Fire Flower costume that have been in Smash since 64.

    Couldn't really get into Smash when I attempted it, especially when finding help meant dealing with tons of esoteric jibber jabber and content meant for the competitive scene and/or players already familiar to the series.

    So I gave up, ignored it, and stuck to Splatoon (smashtoon/splat bros bundle).

    Think I may give this one a try--and no not because of the inklings!! Though they do sweeten the deal... <<;

    Literally every new character reveal trailer I've seen I've been wanting it to be a new Subspace Emissary reveal, but then it's a character reveal trailer :/

    Also, they put the Smash direct on 8/8/18 and didn't announce Octolings as an Inkling Echo Fighter? Ugh.

    What's "Subspace Emissary"?

    Anyway, I think that Ultimate is pretty much complete fighters-wise I mean, can you really think of another realistic option for a fighter?

    Subspace Emissary is basically Story Mode, it appeared in Brawl.

    I'm hoping for that mysterious green mode to be Smash Run but maybe with online multiplayer with everyone in the same dungeon area.

    Smash run was pretty much just an inferior subspace emmisary, so fingers crossed the blurred out part is SE and not SR.

    Also Sakurai it’s not too late to announce Waluigi

    There was a twitter post where someone did a pixel fix (citation needed) and it said like "spirits" or something. Idc if this is a known fact or not but just throwing it out there for people to find.

    I'm hoping it's part of a new story mode, it would be especially interesting to see characters who are usually alternates like the Koopalings or Female Robin to be playable separately from their original fighters.

    I am in that one group that is disappointed with Isabelle in Smash. Mainly because I'm not an AC person.


    Now where's my boi Rex and his swordbaes Pyra and Mythra?

    Why would you be dissapointed at all? The more fighters, the better imo no matter who they are.

    If you should be disappointed in anything, it should be those Smash joycons (oooooohhhh~!)!

    I found the Smash pro controller uninspiring enough, but the joycons went even further.

    As I said, I'm not an AC guy, so it doesn't excite me. Cool that AC fans get another a rep. It's just doesn't apply to me.

    I don't understand how people still have hope for a story mode a la Subspace. That's not going to happen with 75+ characters.
    It was only in Brawl and Smash 4, not in 64 or Melee.

    i will just say it...once i heard Isabelle was in i got very disappointed,from all characters that had a chance to get mentioned in my opinion she doesn't deserve the spot,she deserved a spot as a echo at most to me,but hey that's how i think about it >->

    It's not like non Smash are "competing for a slot" that's not how Sakurai thinks.

    That's how it works from a game dev perspective, though. You have a limited amount of time to flesh out characters, so of course they're competing for slots.
    Isabelle isn't the most exciting character for me either, but there's no denying that she deserved her spot. Animal Crossing is one of Nintendo's most popular series, so it certainly deserves to have (at least) 2 characters, really 3 or 4. And Isabelle is by far the most popular AC character. She makes more sense than half the roster, really.

    Smash was in heavy need for more playable villains, so I don't think Isabelle made more sense than Ridley or King K. Rool since both villains had more history with Nintendo than any Animal Crossing character.

    I don't see why the game needs more villians. The roster arguably only 'needs' to represent Nintendo as well as possible, and it just so happened that Ridley and K.Rool were some popular characters, and were both villians. They both deserve to be part of Smash, but not because of their status as villian, but because they're popular and important Nintendo characters.

    Of course they have more history with Nintendo, on account of being older, but that doesn't mean that much. A character can be new and already be very major to Nintendo (Isabelle and Inkling for Ultimate, or Pikachu back in the Smash 64 days). Fact of the matter is that AC is a bigger deal to Nintendo than a lot of other series that already have 3 characters in (Star Fox, DKC), so it just really needed a second character, and Isabelle just so happens to be the most popular choice. So she deserves her spot just as much as Ridley and King K.Rool do.

    maybe some characters i want will maaaybe not happen....like i want Shadow the Hedgehog,Skull Kid and Sora from KH but the first 2 still are a big maybe since they were never announced as assist throphies and since the new term ''Echo fighters'' got introduced i keep hoping that Shadow will make it >.< and alot of people just seem to want Skull kid all of a sudden and i am 1 of them haha,and Sora..well i know this would probably not happen but i still secretly hope it will cause it would be so cool to have him in smash!

    Not exactly, in an interview with Sakurai which was even on Nintendo Switch News this particular topic was mentioned.

    Something that would be a cool idea that might work out in the end, characters who can be either male or female would give you an option to pick which gender to use in the story mode, separately off course. The characters who I'm talking about are Corrin, Robin, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Inkling and Pokemon Trainer.
