All I'm saying is that I don't like the idea of characters who haven't had a very large presence on Nintendo consoles being in smash.  I will feel that Cloud being in smash would be justified if he comes to a game on a Nintendo console.  I've never really liked the idea of snake being in smash as he hasn't had a very large presence on Nintendo consoles, while Ryu kinda has with how big Street Fighter II was on SNES.  Either way this is just my opinion on which characters should be included.  I understand it makes money for the companies, but I would rather have someone relevant to Nintendo instead.

Why though?
It's like you're deliberately shutting out the rest of the gaming world for some reason. And that's not the welcoming attitude Nintendo needs right now, seeing as they barely get any third party love as it is. We see these kind of crossovers all the time. Take Project X Zone for example. There's no .hack, Yakuza, God Eater, etc games for Nintendo consoles. But there they are. Selvaria from Valkyria Chronicles (PS3 and PC) and Shizuo from Duarara (anime) were added to an arcade fighting game called Fighting Climax. And so on.
And Cloud has been in games on some Nintendo handhelds at least, like Kingdom Hearts and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy. If you're old enough to know Ryu from Street Fighter 2, then you surely know Cloud and Final Fantasy 7 as well.

Does Smash Bros. deserve Cloud?

This is a fair question.

yep this is the real question xD

He definitely does not deserve to be in Smash Bros, unless this is marketing to get Nintendo fans hyped for Final Fantasy VII Remake for NX. Then, I am perfectly fine with him being in Smash Bros, but if not, he has no place in Smash Bros and should not be here.


The flood gates are open.  The next main FF game will be on the NX along  with ps4 and xbone.  I mean, that just makes.  So much sense.

Apparently more than PSABR

OT: It doesn't really matter if he deserves to be in. His iconic status in JRPG makes him a great addition to Smash Bros already phenomenal roster of Nintendo and Japanese gaming icons.

Know we just need Snake back along with his codecs to fill in the Konami representative. 

Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer?  I'm unfamilar with those initials.  Regardless, my question was meant make light of the idea of animated pixels deserving to be with other animated pixels.  It's not like Smash Bros. is a sweet high school girl dating the guy who smokes pot under the overpass.


Playstation All Star Battle Royale.

And I got your point

Cloud is definitely iconic so it is interesting to see him in

I'm not sure where I stand on this, but it's fine... as long as this doesn't open the gateway to some other characters :/

While I do question whether or not FF7R will make it to NX. I do think it's possible for FF7 OG to appear on Wii U and 3DS as a VC title


Not regarding your post, but every time I see a post of yours I spend like 5 minutes watching you sig...



Are you kidding? It's a no brainer slam dunk. Especially if FF7 Remake is coming to NX down the line, it's a good way to introduce the IP to the Nintendo-verse as it were. Even if its not, it's still a cool move. 

Besides I think Smash now pretty much has all the "big gun" iconic characters of video gaming (Sony/MS owned characters aside).

Sonic, Snake, Ryu, Megaman, Pac-Man, and Cloud have all appeared. They may as well bring Snake back as DLC too IMO.



Cloud is to good for it. I'd say he is over qualified, and ninten don't deserve it. congrats to Smash Bros for getting a FF char tho. Believe it!

Could have Pacman as well.
Way past its time, but Pacman will always be a big icon to gaming.
