Super Smash Ultimate: Is Goku Actually a Possibility? Like Is it Really IMPOSSIBLE?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Super Smash Ultimate: Is Goku Actually a Possibility? Like Is it Really IMPOSSIBLE?

I will quit gaming if he makes it in.

Only after they run out of Nintendo characters to add, plus more deserving gaming icons.

We could have a Dragon Quest rep, if people really want something from Toriyama.

This.

 

He still qualifies as a video game character.  Although for some reason I think Master Chief is a possibility now.  But only based on some recent good relations between MS and Nintendo in articles.  MS was visiting Japan I believe earlier this year with discussions, and who knows what all they were doing.

Yeah, Anything can happen .

If they need more  much money.

The biggest reason reason he shouldn't be in is because he IS NOT A VIDEOGAME CHARACTER, the moment you add him any non video game character could now be in and it's already bad enough with people asking for Goku and Shrek,despite the fact that neither is possible.

Also why the fuck is it that only Goku and DB get requested for Smash, because without the manga and anime nobody would care about them, because least be honest out side of a few games, DB games aren't good, there are non video game characters, like 007 and Batman, that have a better case to be a part of Smash, and even they should never allowed to be near Smash let alone in one.

Goku for Smash is just a stupid meme that should just die already.

Lucario was born in a movie.
Also the Assist Thropies Dr Kaashima and Dr Wright are "characters" from the real world (Both are persons).

I want to make clear I do NOT think Goku is possible. It would be too polarizing to devote one of the very, very few remaining possible character slots to an anime character. It would be possible to do in theory, more so than Shrek anyway, but not right now, definitely not. That said, in the spirit of this thread, here's an up and coming Smash Youtuber who's reasonably big in the Youtube Smash scene, reacting to the recent direct. At the end, he (jokingly, I believe) discusses the possibility of Goku in Smash Ultimate. His argument, summarized, is that the trailers seem to imply that if there is a story mode, there will be heroes and villains, and that therefore the trailers we've seen so far are actually from the story mode, and that therefore, Luigi, Mario, and Megaman are canonically dead. If they're dead, they'll need someone to resurrect them. Enter Goku. Also, that punch between K.Rool and DK looked like a straight up DBZ scene, and he makes the comparison between such a scene.

Discussion of hero and villain theme and possibility of Goku begins at 17:00, comparison of DK-K.Rool punch and Goku-Vegeta punch is at 18:40.

I highly doubt there is a numerical limit on the number of character slots the game can have. I've always thought the character slots argument is the weakest one for any anti-inclusion argument (not saying you are basing your reasoning all on this).



I wouldn't rule it out as being straight up impossible, but it doesn't make a single bit of sense, and I don't personally want it to happen, even if I could imaging kid Goku on the nimbus cloud with a giant ape final smash being a lot of fun to play.



I think it's more about license and Money. Sakaurai needs agreements from:
-Akira Toriyama (creator of the character),
-Bandai Namco (owner of the rights of making Dragonball games),
-Funimations (have the rights of the Animations)
-Masako Nozawa (japanese voice of Goku).

The problem is that Smash isn't a dedicated Dragonball game and getting the 4 Ok's take a long time. Unless Sakurai can spend so much money and gets the agreements immediately.

I used that phrasing as a expression that people would generally know what I meant. There is no hard number limit. There is a number, but it is arbitrary and based on development time and resources. So there are, in a way, character slots, but not literally, just in a "number in Sakurai's head that he thinks he can handle" sort of way.



The walls for who gets into Smash Bros keeps getting lower.
Super Smash Bros (Only Nintendo All-Stars)
Super Smash Bros Melee (Only Nintendo Characters )
Super Smash Bros Brawl(Only Characters that appeared on Nintendo consoles)
Super Smash Bros 4 (Any Video game character)
Super Smash Bros Ultimate (Any character that appeared on a video game?)

I wouldn't be surprised if Goku is in the game to be honest. After Cloud got in I realized that there are no rules. If there are rules then they WILL eventually get broken. Smash Bros characters are like a slippery slope now.
