In terms of characters, I only really care about Dark Samus as I haven't played or just don't care about the games for the others, but it's cool to have Simon particularly so you can have Samus vs Simon, the faces of Metroidvanias and K. Rool is another unique character so that's always good.

Lots of cool things announced otherwise, but the stage morphing to another stage thing looks awesome.

looks like i'll need to update this

i'll probably replace roy with simon, so then all five of my mains will be characters from series i've actually played and have emotional connections to—i'm only emotionally connected to roy because of melee; not only have i never played an FE game, the series also looks like it's gone to complete shit lately, and the game in which roy appears is still exclusive to japan anyway, so even if i wanted to play his game, i literally can't

he'll be demoted to potential, i guess

are old school NTSC-J games compatible with US NTSC consoles?

I can’t imagine it being too much of a workaround to play it on an original console, excluding game rarity

(I know you’re super against emulation so I won’t suggest that)

yeah, the nice thing about the GBA is that it's region free, so i could even play mother 3 on it

the only issue is that i cannot read moon—so i'd need a translation guide as well, among other issues

Spoiler
i've recently developed a fetish for playing new series in release order, even if the games are not connected by story whatsoever, because i want to emulate the experience of being someone who started the series from its earliest days and was able to witness its growth from the very first title—because of this, i like to completely ignore enhanced remakes like Shadow Dragon for DS and Shadows of Valentia

roy's game, The Binding Blade, is the sixth game in the series—before then, we have:

Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light
Gaiden
Mystery of the Emblem
Genealogy of the Holy War
Thracia 776

literally none of which i can play without importing and playing through the whole game in japanese

the first three were remade, but only the first two are available in the west—the Mystery of the Emblem remake is still exclusive to japan for whatever reason (again, not that i'm interested in playing remakes anyway)

the next game to come after The Binding Blade was simply titled Fire Emblem, because it was the first game in the series to get a worldwide release, so i suppose if i were to swallow my pride, that would be my starting point

but that doesn't get me anywhere in terms of getting to play roy's game, which is the only game i'm really interested in (i've heard that Roy is actually kind of a lame and shitty character from FE fans, but i honestly don't care)

hi

Pretty ecstatic about K. Rool. This game is Skull Kid away from being my perfect Smash roster.

I'm kind of blown away by how much content we have now.

I’ll at least use Simon as a counterpick for Corrin since it looks like he outranges her and I can NOT be bothered putting up with Fsmashers who literally only ever try to turn you into a kebab

so is it just me or is the numbering of the characters really bothersome

like, it seems so inconsistent. the third party characters arent all together, characters arent grouped by series

i thought it was based on the characters first appearance, but thats not right either

help 

Spoiler
hmm so looking at it more, i guess it IS based on the character's first appearance in the smash series, not their respective games?

idk, it still bothers me

they're ordered by first appearance in a smash game, not in general

first of all, echo fighters are grouped with the character they're echoing because duh

01-08 is the initial smash 64 roster, in order in which they're identified in the original intro

09-12 are 64's unlockable characters, in seemingly arbitrary order (Luigi and Captain Falcon appear simultaneously in the intro, with Ness and Jigglypuff showing up after, yet the ultimate order is luigi/ness/falcon/puff, so i dunno what's going on there)

then we get to the melee newcomer starters (13-17), which is an interesting case, because instead of going by melee's disc intro, they actually chose to go by the trailer they showed at E3, when the game was first revealed to the public

for the disc intro, it goes like this: Peach, Bowser, Ice Climbers, Zelda, and Sheik—which is close, but does not correspond perfectly with ultimate's ordering, where Sheik is listed before Zelda

this is because there's a very slight difference between the two intros: the original E3 intro doesn't show Zelda at all; just another clip of Sheik throwing some needles—the familiar Zelda clip of her using Din's Fire was added later when the game actually came out, and that's why Sheik is listed before Zelda

18-26 are all of melee's unlockable characters, and i honestly couldn't tell you what they're going by here—they seem to be ordered roughly by who would be most likely for the average player to unlock first (with Dr. Mario and Pichu being considered "early" unlocks, and Mewtwo and Mr. G&W being considered "late" unlocks), but that's just a spitball

then we get to the brawl characters, and i think you get the idea by now

27-31 is Meta Knight, Pit, Zero Suit Samus, Wario, and Snake, which is the exact order in which they were revealed in Brawl's extremely memorable E3 trailer which i don't even think i need to link, and the rest (i believe) are based on the order in which they were posted about on brawl's old blog site, the Smash Dojo

from there it's pretty straightforward i think, you get the idea

Goodness gracious, great balls of lightning!
Knuckles as an assist trophy is pretty dope. Nice to see some other Sonic characters get some love, even if he isn't playable.
