I've lurked in all these threads, I know how it can be during off season vs on season (so to speak) and I know no one means any harm. I felt like participating this time because we might not get a reveal for a long time after this.
For the record I’m not couching my posts with “I might be wrong”
I know Byleth would generate a ton of salt.
Because at one point this was going to be the final DLC fighter (before they decided to do more post-FP DLC). So this was basically their "last chance" to get one of their characters in.
-Byleth: Ugh. Dimitri: Meh. Claude: Cool. Edelgard: <3
The worst case for me would be Cinderace. We got a fire starter in the base roster and it'd just feel redundant even if their gimmicks are different.
Fans: *Endlessly cycle through the same speculated characters over and over*
The only option on this list I really like is the non-Fire Starter Pokémon rep, and that’s only if we assume that means not a starter, period.
Hard pass on Three Houses, okay with Xenoblade, meh for the others.
-So long as it's not Byleth I'm cool. Claude or Edelgard would be aces.
- Amazing, but only if Claude or Edelgard.
1. I'm down
Shadow drop a smash character? What kind of marketing strategy is thatWhy do y’all reckon they went with this reveal strategy this time around, by the way? They could easily have either revealed the character earlier or just waited until next month and shadow-dropped it, but they’re going with the “it’s a mystery!” spectacle probably less than a month from release, instead. They just want to mix it up?
