It really bothers me that the only good Chibi-Robo game is stuck on the GameCube. Here’s hoping for a Switch port at some point.
The real question is, which of the non-Zip Lash games is not good?
Phoenix is going to object at the end of the presentation and be FP6. You heard it here first.
Agreed. I wouldn't want to have to give up on my precious pastime of shitposting on Era tomorrow over being spoiled one day before a reveal.
Leaderboards with replays that you can watch for the top 5 contestants.
While I definitely believe Travis is the current front-runner, this is something that sticks out to me. Why is this the only character they decided to wait to reveal with a full gameplay demo? The only thing I can think of is that either Sakurai or Nintendo thought that this character needed a sort of proof-of-concept to go along with their reveal, to help people understand how they might play, or why they were included.Zippo‘s comments really make it sound like it could be Travis. I can’t think of any other characters that fit the description.
But if that was the case, why didn’t they drop his Smash reveal onto the end of that awesome NMH3 trailer they dropped at the Game Awards? I get not wanting to overshadow it, but... it would have been perfect.
I absolutely hate that this describes both my first- and second-most wanted characters and will inevitably be neither one.
If we were to reflect back onto the clues we were given, one would recall that Dixie Kong is not truly a Nintendo character but a Rareware one. Given her heritage and the complexities of the sale to Microsoft, the summation of her origins could easily construed to be "weird", and "kinda sorta Nintendo". Additionally, as seen in the ripped screenshot of Sakurai from Thursday's direct, not only is he displaying a gang sign in reference to Dixie Kong's starring role in the third Donkey Kong Country game, but a thin brown outline can be observed around his shoulder, clearly the primary color of Dixie's iteration of the banner that has hung behind Sakurai during all of his DLC character presentations. In this essay I will
I think you're getting too hung up on the "owns" part. He simply said "sorta kinda first party" and then made asked about the clarification of the ownership of Fire Emblem.Honestly I don’t think what Zippo is referring to totally fits Travis.
For one despite it being a game that Nintendo encouraged to make and was even built with Switch capabilities in mind it still got ported to PS4 and PC so that nips the notion that No More Heroes is an IP Nintendo “owns” or has that much involvement in.
Another is that Suda implied Travis missed the cut this time back in E3. So that’s not looking good for him either
Honestly I’m at the point that maybe Zippo slightly misinterpreted the info and the character is a third party with heavy Nintendo influence/association or a Nintendo IP that they co own with another entity.
