Today's Smash Direct had some crazy reveals! (Spoilers in thread)
Posted: Posted August 8th, 2018
Edited August 8th, 2018 by ShadowFox08

Spoilers below!

Simon Belmont, Richter, Dark Samus, Chrom, and K Rool got revealed as playable characters! Richter is an echo of Simon, Dark Samus is an echo of Samus, and Chrom is an echo of a Ike.

There were also a bunch of stage reveals (Dreamland is back), tournament mode coming back, and also some new multiplayer modes. Check out the video for more info.

Chrom is actually a Roy echo.

Interesting. He has Ike's up special though. https://www.ssbwiki.com/Chrom_(SSBU)

Some thoughts:

-Every character reveal made me excited. I think I'll be more likely to play as Richter Belmont over Simon and Dark Samus over Samus. Roy and Chrom I feel are tossups. K. Rool looks great but I would love to see more battles by him or a bigger explanation.
-Sad that Shovel Knight didn't get a character slot. At least he's in the game.
-Pumped that nearly every stage is back. Am still disappointed at 3 of the stages not being there (Melee Mute City, Pokéfloats, and Woolly World. Maybe also Jungle Hijinx).
-I like these new modes. Squad smash (I think that's the name) looks pretty interesting and so does Smashdown. Sucks that for competitive I can't see them using this or Smashdown.
-Stamina mode coming back was also wonderful. Stamina mode with stocks too is real cool. That seems like something that should be a better fighting mode. Again competitive smash will just strip away with these.
-Music is real cool but I can't help but feel almost overwhelmed. 34 tracks on one stage? That's insane. That'll take me forever to go through and organize the music to how I want it.

Really? He uses Ike's sword and has the great ether final smash. Thought his basic moved we're Ike's toop?

I believe the sword he uses is actually the one Lucina uses, the falchion. It looks like he's almost completely Roy but his up B is definitely an Ike move. He also looks like he has something similar to Corrin's running but maybe that's just me.

I'll have to look at the video again. Smash boards confirms it though

I found out on the official website. He's listed as a Roy clone which is kinda strange.

That is a lot of music in one stage, but you can turn off some. I was hoping we could play music from different franchises into other stages(really miss FE theme in Hyrule temple), oh well.
Dissapointing that stages are all unlocked from the start

Chrom doesn't have any sweet or sourspots apparently. It will be interesting.

Squad smash definitely peaks my interest..Been wanting that since brawl days

The first time I saw "Squad Smash" I read it as "Squid Smash" and I was wondering how the hell they were going to get Splatoon modes into Smash...

Geno is next...

And Mallow

liking Richter's style more than Simon's, could be cool

Dark Samus eh idk, have to see what's actually different to justify the upgrade from palette swap status. Never really saw why people wanted her/it, aside from "we want more metroid and you said no ridley"

K Rool I need a better look at to have a fair opinion - not really against it but he's not someone I was looking for (though I understand a lot of people have been)

Chrom can fuck off

It will be interesting.
more like the opposite of interesting

squad mode sounds like the shit I've been asking for, as someone who constantly cycles between different characters

it looks like rage can be turned off, which is a beautiful thing

800+ tracks sounds good and all but:
  • is mona pizza back
  • can we go back to the non-remixed version of the diamond/pearl champion theme, because the smash 4 remix both sucked and blew ass
  • you'd better get more than two fucking final fantasy tracks if you're adding almost three dozen from castlevania

    you'd better get more than two fucking final fantasy tracks if you're adding almost three dozen from castlevania

    lolnope. At least not according to what we saw. They went by the Final Fantasy series and it said "2 tracks".

    Posted August 8th, 2018 by Fox Forever

    that's exactly why I'm taking such a tone

    you've still got a few months to go, guys

    whether it's the smash team or squenix draggin' their heels, kindly get your shit together and squeeze a few more FF tunes in there. There's an entire Final Fantasy rhythm game with more than 200 tracks, so there's clearly a solid catalog to pick from. Hell, even if you just take a couple good ones from 7 it'd be nice.

    Sakurai said more characters will be revealed before release, right? He said something about everything of something will be revealed before then.

    Anyway, I'm wondering who the next characters will be. F-zero is long over due for a second character rep. Samurai Goroh or BlBlack Shadow are good contenders(assuming we didn't see gioroh as an assist trophy). Goroh could get a unique set while black shadow could be an echo of ganondorf/c falcon.

    What do you guys think and hope we'll get? Seems like Sakurai is trying to balance out series with more villians, particularly for the original 12. I can see Shadow come back as an echo of Sonic, and potentially gygas as an echo of Mewtwo(or maybe porky, or Claus?). Geno is also incredibly popular, and a lot of the mii outfits we got last for Wii u are coming true as characters.

    Edited August 8th, 2018 by ShadowFox08

    Goroh is already an assist trophy.

    Also Sakurai said that we will see every character before the game's release. There's still at least some more. There's technically just 4 brand new characters and 3 echoes so far.
