For those guessing Smash character please provid a specific character or at least from what specific game it comes from to count. We ALL know a smash character is coming lol, therefore that isn't new.

Ok. I commented a few entries back. If it isn't too much of a pain for you my prediction (Hope!) is karate Joe. I can always edit if it makes it easier for you.

Ha, your avatar for Smash and Rhythm Heaven Forever launching today for Switch!

BTW, there is a video for Rhythm Girl in Smash.

EDIT: To be clear, this is not my prediction for the league, that one is some posts above.

Here's my two cents:
-New Smash reveal.
-N64 releases for the online service
-A looooot of indies. At least half of the games shown will be indies or new content for indies.
-New info about Pokemon Snap
-New info about Bravely Default II
-Xenoblade Chronicles X port.
-NO BAYONETTA 3. That's for E3.
-Some Capcom game, either a port or a collection.
-Resident Evil VIII Cloud version
-Persona 5 or Persona 4. Something Persona.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

-New Kirby game announced
-Pokemon Diamond/Pearl remake announced.

We can only hope!

I watched the video and enjoyed the first 4 minutes-ish, until he disregarded Karate Joe for a generic AF "Rhythm girl"  >:(

ANIMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF FRIEND CODE:- 5129 1175 1029. MESSAGE ME.
ANDY MURRAY:- GRAND SLAM WINNER!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

Yeah, I was expecting more or less a copy of his MvC3 moveset for Smash.

And he's by far not the only one not suited for a fighting game and feeling out of place. Duck-Hunt Dog and Piranha Plant were bigger shockers in that regard than Phoenix Wright ever could be now.

Duck Hunt Dog I think is warranted just on the basis of his importance to Nintendo history. I think the Zapper was a big part of the NES, and DHD represents pretty much all of the light gun games.

Piranha plant is more apt. There's nothing wrong with having out of place characters in a game like Smash, but we already have a few, and we already have Phoenix who was done really well in UMVC3. So, it's hard to get too excited to play as him here. 

It's okay, I'm just running out of potential characters for Smash that wouldn't be close to a clone (if not outright a moveset clone) of somebody else.
