Implying and what actually happens in regards to Smash are two different things they implied back at E3 the would likely be no new characters added and this week we got 5 with a confirmation a few more are on the way so we can't really take what is implied as an absolute.

They never said there wouldn't be any more new characters, they said not to expect many more, and in fact we've only had 2 new ones since if we're taking off Echo Fighters, which they clearly don't count as new characters. It's quite different than them coming out and saying "there are exactly 103 stages in the game", after all they could have just said "over 100" if they were still gonna add more.

But yes, I know. Sakurai implied he wouldn't carry on doing Smash after Melee, Brawl, and 4. You can never be too sure with him.

Which is why I said they implied the wouldn't be new characters much like you're saying they implied something, echo fighters do count as they're a different approach to a move set so like them or not they count.

But do we know what all of those 103 stages are?



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Yes we do, they showed the stage select screen and all 103 stages were there... along with a suspicious empty hole at the bottom, several stages wide. In a different game, I'd say that means for sure there would be more stages, but if I've learned anything about Smash over time is they really don't give a crap about making their stage or character select screens decently.

Ironically there are actually 104 stages. Seems like sakurai and others dont notice there is a 5th new stage in the game xD

Monster Hunter stage. Sakurai even specifically said that MH dragon (forgot name) is a boss in that stage which we dont have a name for. Look it up, its not in the 103 stages i checked

 

Edit: oh and GX noticed it too lol. So we can still get another 2-10 stages that are new maybe!

Might not be a stage though. Could just be a Story/Adventure stage and not one that you can pick when fighting just smash like.

This. I initially thought that looked like a story mode boss stage already, then not seeing it on the stage select screen and not having any actual MH characters makes it even more likely that's the case.

Here is the thing. If you carefully watch the video again he says comment that "he can show up as a boss". If it were a story mode wouls they make that comment?

As in he can be a boss or an assist trophy.
