Like, even if you all wanted SMT representation instead, they'd go with the most recognizable SMT character...which is the Demi-Fiend, from the PS2.

FF7 was announced for Switch.
Snake came into Smash for The Twin Snakes.
Ryu and Ken are SF characters which has a long Nintendo history.
A PS1/PC port is your justification while FF7R is absent on SW.
Likewise, Snake, despite missing the actual MGS games.
SF poster characters, despite missing the latest SF.

This is almost in line with those that think Joker was announced to promote PQ2.

I mean, sure, but so far they have only been picking Japanese made characters from Japanese companies. Even on Nintendo's side there are only I believe two characters (Diddy and KRool) that were not made by Japanese people.
Dark Samus was made by a Texan studio.

Also, for whatever's worth, there's unused data for two Rare games from the N64 era in Ultimate.

Just Dante of those three please
Dont worry u will get them and those game wont come to switch too.


Man it only sounds like most of your salt is founded in some misguided console wars nonsense.
Dont u put me in this console wars shit. Again. SmT is more worthy inclusion rather than Persona due to all its history. I want a proper representation title on game that resonate with Nintendo fans rather than just choosing popular IP all around.

The Twin Snakes is literally the reason Snake was in Brawl.
FF7R isn’t on anything yet. FF7 proper came over.

That ain't Jack Frost, although Demi-fiend would be dope. Other than those two, I guess Flynn could have a shot too considering SMTIV came out a while back. Honestly though? I'd want the GOAT Aleph over all of them but that ain't happening.

I'll be more charitable and say that you have a very pronounced preference of SMT over Persona, which is the real reason you're salty.

I would rather he incorporates different Persona for each Neutral attack. It would be a pain for the 3D modellers, but it would be more accurate to how Persona protagonists play.
I agree, but it presents some problems, like the need of having multiple models in memory all the time(Pokemon trainer has this so it's possible). Maybe Jack Frost, Izanagi or Orpheus are in his B attacks too.

Ok, I found my new main. God damn, I bought the season pass blind but no matter what the other fighters are this makes it worth every dollar

I am not sure how people can say Joker is not that relevant when he stars in a multi million seller that received endless rave reviews and cameos in loads of other games on all kinds of platforms with likely dozens upon dozens more happening in the coming years. I want characters like Captain Syrup to show up too (I really, really want more Wario reps in general), but trying to downplay this based on relevance is absolutely bizarre. Nintendo legitimately does not have very many notable characters left.

Also guys, you are forgetting Joker's other cameo on a Nintendo console.

Spoiler: persona is going to resonate with many more Nintendo fans than whatever random SMT pick you're imagining, because there is no law on this planet that requires you to play games only on a single console, combined with the sheer popularity of persona, especially 5 over everything else atlus has ever published.

Thats not the point: Nintendo will bring in characters despite missing their latest games and continues to do so.
FF7R has been announced for PS4, not sure why you are acting like FF7R isn't the most obvious FF7 reference right now but chose a 20 year old PS1/PC port.

Back when Snake debuted, he included a song from MGS4 and the background to Shadow Moses Island had Metal Gear Gekko running around.

Sakurai doesn't care about your Nintendo purity.

Please let this mean the mainline Persona games coming to Switch. All my top five favourite games will be on one console, which would automatically make Switch the best machine ever imo.

Eh, I’d say he’ll probably stick with his default, like all other Persona protags in spinoffs.

My guess, down b summons Arsene, adds a burn effect to his attacks. Higher damage and bigger area until he gets hit. Sort of like a lesser version of Cloud’s limit break, since it could be used whenever.

Guys a question over a problem I've had in Smash Bros since Melee, is it supposed to be difficult to face the right direction?

I feel that whenever I want to quickly switch the way I am facing I end up running fast in that direction.

E.g. If I am facing right and a Pokeball appears just behind my back, when I try to face that way to grab it I usually then end up running way past the pokeball and usually in to somebody else (or some hazard).

Any tips?

This is true.

It's possible that SMTV will change this if breaks out.
