Away from the thread I go for a few hours, I guess, lol
No matter what we say, just remember you won, no one can take that away!

Male Byleth actually has one of my fave designs for main characters in the series, a shame they just deliberately made the actual character non talkative (which was actually a step up from "gods noooo" Corrin so....)

Personally speaking, my issue was never the fact that we got a Three Houses rep, I love the game to pieces. My problem is that of all its interesting characters, we got Byleth. Had it been Edelgard or Claude, I would have been hyped. Hell, if they made Female Byleth the default, as much as I hate the design, I'd be "Huh, okay, at least they made the female version the default this time". Would I still prefer Edelgard or Claude, most certainly. But it'd be a nice consolation prize.

But hey, we finally got ARMS in Smash, so it all worked out later down the road. I just wish Sakurai & Nintendo were a bit more adventurous with their Three Houses pick.

Happy for an Arms rep and happy Nintendo seems to be breathing some new life into Arms in general with this free trial and tournament. I got the game at launch and played it a lot but haven’t in a while. Will be going back to it this weekend. Interested to see where it’s at these days.

Hoping for Twintelle to be the Arms rep in Smash. I think she’s the best choice all things considered. But I could see it going to pretty much anyone else on the roster too. Besides Spring Man probably considering he’s an AT. I love him though.

The writers made Byleth's quiet demeanor work in the game's canon, which is more than can be said for most silent protagonists that just sort of stand there while the plot happens around them.

Oh god. I just thought about an ARMS fighter's Final Smash, and it's going to be Mr. Yabuki literally breaking the fourth wall and annihilating the opponent with godlike precision.

all this new shit in XCDE really makes me want Melia or Fiora or whoever in Smash Bros. just so we can get some of that

They speak the truth.

"But at least their gameplay is interesting" is a crutch used by the less interesting character additions, who I won't name to be polite, like Corrin for example.

Who the character is, their history, their personality, matters so much. It makes all the difference in the world.
That's subjective. For me, how a character plays is of the upmost importance, but I'll use "well, they have a good personality/history" to justify when I don't like how they play (e.g. Banjo)

Just saw the news. That's an odd way to reveal the character but also not reveal it.

In retrospect it kind of makes sense to start Nintendo, because they could've started work without needing a third party approval.

We thinking June is realistic with what's going on? I'm expecting a delay.
That would make sense why they went with Nintendo character first since they can working on Nintendo characters so they would smooth the hiccups with Arms awhile working on third party characters with the said companies.

I'm more curious to see how many Nintendo characters we are going to get? Man, I'm quite excited about Arms character because I didn't think they would have a chance until they straight out confirmed that we are going to get one.

I dunno, this looks like the announcement of a fighter to me.

Never said they had to actually announce who that fighter is.
Oh snap. Odeko, your retort?
The best line of the whole direct:

Don't see a reason to assume it's Spring Man beyond him being the cover boy. We're well passed the point where rules are being shattered left and right; ARMS is a new series, chances are ARMS 2 won't even feature the same cast of characters as leading faces. Even including Spring Man would go beyond any preconceived notions of who can and can't get into the game since he's already an AT. This is the first time Smash is presenting a new character inclusion as a figurative roulette by telling us which series is getting repped but not which character. We're talking about rules, but this is something that's never happened before. All bets are off. You're a fool if you think Spring Man is the obvious choice, or anyone else is.

Even if I still strongly believe it's Min Min because the timing is just too conspicuous and she has too many things going for her.

They showed her picture so I doubt we're ment to consider her "out" plusher hair is still called ARMS in-universe.
That's why I said her hairs can be considered as arms becuase I do find it weird that people are actively tried to disconfirmed her. I wonder if they ever play the games themselves becuase I do believe that they specifically called her hairs as Arms because of it's power and skills.

I don't think Spring Man is the obvious choice.

I think he's one of three of the obvious choices.

Spring Man (+ Ribbon Girl + Ninjara + Min Min) with an Echo Fighter, Dr. Coyle (+ Max Brass + Mechanica + Master Mummy)

I'd give it 50/50 odds on it being the opposite of pass 1 with mostly Nintendo characters and one big 3rd party.
