it won't be a big character IMO

new animal crossing game + isabelle echo announced alongside it is my guess

it could also very well be isaac, since he has earth-based moves (according to some golden sun fans i know), which would explain why they'd choose to delay the direct
Skull Kid works for the delay as well.

Why wouldn't they reveal one of the Big 5 (Skull Kid, Banjo, Incineroar, Geno, Isaac) at a Nintendo General Direct? You're trying to get people to get hyped and buy the game, I'd imagine you go for a hype reveal for the people who are either on the fence or just haven't seen much from the game, not unlike Ridley at E3

There’s actually a fair bit of discussion about Isabelle on Smash Twitter, but they actually think Goku is likely so I’m taking that with a grain of salt.

Not gonna lie if they put a new Zelda character in I don’t personally see Skull Kid being the first one they go to (or Midna/Wolf Link rip), maybe a secondary villain from one of the later games (I.e: Zant), or even that fat dude that destroys the bridge of eldin
Midna is deconfirmed (Assist Trophy).
Zant and King Bublin are irrelevant at this point and don't have the same acclaim and history as Skull Boi.

On top of that there's a whole slew of evidence regarding Skull Kid. From the furniture in the 8/8 Direct to him being noticeably missing from the Moon Assist and his other Assist Trophy function being replaced by another character. Trust me when I say if we're getting a Zelda rep, it'll be SK.

This is a good round-up video for Skull Kid rumors. It's a bit dated as there's been more evidence since this but it's solid.

Also I gotta plug my boi Mimique (in a discord server with him https://discord.gg/pcQy8B, friend of my brother since like, Smash 4 hype)

not saying it won't happen, but it's been argued that the moon's place as an AT kinda takes away what his most obvious final smash would've been

he'll obviously be in the game, but i think it's a tossup between playable character and boss at this point

also incineroar is a piece of shit, i really hope he doesn't get in

Majora's Wrath as a Final Smash would be fine instead of the Moon. Put it into a cut-scene and let it ride.

Also if you have a character who's that size, why would you go through the trouble of making him a boss fight and not just make him playable instead. (All bosses in the game are currently bigger than every fighter, i.e. Rathalos, Dracula, etc.)

well, it's like you said, they could just incorporate all of his different phases into the fight, not unlike what they did with master core

which would actually make more sense than having skull kid take the form of Wrath, because that technically never happens in the game—the mask, majora himself, only changes form after he's already disposed of the skull kid as a host

i'd obviously still prefer him to be playable, i'm just trying to find reasons not to get my hopes up at this point

usually when it comes to smash, i try to avoid rumors/leaks, as i feel like it ruins the fun of revealing

but at the same time, i can't NOT look at them. stupid curiosity

"Character 'slots' don't exist—there's no imaginary upper limit; if they want to add someone, they just will"

"DLC is good because it allows them to add characters that otherwise wouldn't have made the cut"

reddit needs to pick one of these and stick with it

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

Prediction:
Skull Kid - Geno - Isabelle (echo) - (maybe one more echo)
Kirby dies in the trailer

"Spirits" trailer

Smash Online discussed briefly.

Maybe a possible release date move up. Maybe.

yeah i'm locking isabelle and isaac in

i will actively predict that there won't be a big character like geno or skull kid though (or modes, for that matter)

i feel like two characters is already being too nice, given that it's a general direct, but i would obviously be delighted to be wrong

smash twitter is surprisingly upset about Isabelle

These are the same glue sniffers that welcomed Corrin and Bayonetta with open arms so I guess I shouldn’t have been expecting much

because they were all expecting a big character like geno or some dumb shit and got overhyped

hindsight is obviously 20/20 but you have to be on some shit to think they'd drop a trailer for a BIG character in a general direct

i for one didn't exactly want her, but welcome her with open arms after seeing her gameplay—and the fact that we're getting a new AC game on top of it is pretty nice too, i've been really wanting to return to this franchise

Only reason I don't like her is because yiffers belong in peices in a back alley dumpster.

Her moveset is really cool as far as echo fighters go. She almost deserves her own spot separate from Villager in that regard.

she actually does

if you check the site, she's not an echo—it's a dr. mario/lucas situation

tbh it being a general direct is why I thought they might announce a Golden Sun duology remake instead of Isaac for Smash. He could go in Smash as is, but Nintendo could double down on checking the viability of the IP with a 3ds game as well since it's pretty established that 3ds games are pretty easy to make a return on.
