Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash Bros DLC 5 Presentation announced: 01/16 6AM PT

I just woke up and I turned on Youtube expecting some 3rd party thing. WTF is this shit?! ANother fucking FE character? WHO THE FUCK ASKED FOR THIS SHIT?!



Bite my shiny metal Cockpit!

Around the Network

More Fire Emblem stuff. Woo hoo. -_-



I dont get it.

Before the presentation we had 1 chance of getting the character we wanted. (ok, sakurai said we would have more, but I expected it would be something like piranha plant...)
Now, we have 6 chances of having the character we want.
Even for those who didnt want Byleth, or think it shouldnt be on smash, is a win situation.

I will never get this trend of gaming community that having something optional they didnt want (or thing it shouldnt exist) is worse than not having it.



Everyone is going mad on Twitter



Pocky Lover Boy!

The problem is that another FE character feels like something nobody wanted. Not in the sense that you don't want but also don't mind it's there. It's in the sense of actively disliking it's presence in the roster.

Then... don't buy the DLC? They're out to make money so, if nobody buys it, they'll probably stop releasing Fire Emblem characters as DLC.



Well, as my boy Thanos once said: Reality is often disappointing.



Well, not every character can be a guest character. Those licenses aren't cheap. So the latest FE rep makes sense. Even though there are many FE characters in the game.

I imagined the three fingers/question marks could mean DMC3, Three Houses, No More Heroes 3, or 3 individual character reveals. Although the last one seemed very unlikely.

By the way, Capcom's Jan 16 announcement turned out to be a Style Change option for DMC3 for Switch.

Welp... Fire Emblem character...

Not sure why this was apparently so secretive within Nintendo, nor why he said they'd be surprised.

Did Sakurai say people would be surprised?

Does Nintendo pay licensing fees?  Honestly for a character like Banjo, it seems like Microsoft gains as much or more from him being in Smash than Smash gains from his presence.
