Something I’ve seen no one talking about that would make sense is a beat,em,up Rep. I’m thinking Final Fight, Streets Of Rage, or Double Dragon would be popular enough to work. The only beat em up reference that I can think of in all of SSBU are the River City spirits.

Great point! I think it could work and Kunio-kun would probably be the safest bet in that regard.

@Blooper987 Cody from Final Fight is a Spirit in the base game, classified as a Street Fighter Spirit.

I think a beat-em-up rep makes a lot of sense but I don't know if it'll happen, since the River City spirits were added after planning for the second pass wrapped up and I think that series makes the most sense to represent the genre in Smash. Streets of Rage is probably the most likely one.

For a beat em up rep I definitely view Axel from Streets of Rage as the most likely, especially with the new game that just came out, but I'd also personally be down for Sketch Turner from Comix Zone, as he could bring a really unique aesthetic with stuff like aggressive cel shading and different comic book drawing techniques like wavelines and particle effects resembling the punch stun explosions that happen when characters punch each other in comic books

Although I do view him as unlikely for a SEGA rep compared to Axel

I thought since we’re likely getting close to the announcement we could each place our bets on who fighter #7 is.
That French leak that supposed predicted Min Min in February says Phoenix is next, but I think it’s wrong. That being said I think I can throw out a few things for certain.

No Mario character. It would’ve prolly been announced yesterday.

No Bethesda Rep. vault boy and their comments on DOOM in smash is a clear disconfirmation makes me doubt this.

Capcom is likely. New Monster Hunter? Ace Attorney? Big Nintendo partner they deserve more.

Bamco. Why do they only have Pac-Man? They help make the game, they should get another Rep.

Ubisoft. With how buddy buddy they seem to be with Nintendo I could easily see this happening.

My final guess would have to be Phoenix Wright, Lloyd Irving or a new Xenonlade Rep.

What do y’all think we’ll be seeing next?

What I wish for:

1. Isaac (Golden Sun) - (Yes, I do believe that being an AT deconfirms him, but he's still my most-wanted.)
2. Amaterasu (Okami)
3. Phoenix Wright (Ace Attorney)

What I expect:
-Random third party characters that have almost no history with Nintendo whatsoever.
-Another Fire Emblem character.

I too want another Xenoblade representative. The franchise has become really important for Nintendo and I believe it is the most well deserved of having another character added to the roster. Personally, I'd like Reyn to be added, but that's never going to happen of course. Rex seems to be the obvious choice, but I wonder if Sakurai will instead opt for a Nopon as a representative of the franchise as a whole. Not Riki or Tora, but just 'Nopon' with 8 different skins. I think they could come up with some really crazy movesets for a little furball like that.

Unpopular opinion but I'd honestly be down for another fighter who has next to no history with Nintendo whatsoever in the vein of Joker or Cloud

One of my personal dream picks for Ultimate would be Raiden (the Metal Gear one) despite the fact that neither his game of origin, nor his solo title have ever come to any Nintendo system. Metal Gear Rising is probably one of Platinum's best games imo and I'd love to see the series get way more representation despite the fact that its Nintendo appearances are kind of scarce in comparison to other platforms

I feel like with Ultimate's roster picks, Nintendo is targeting all types of gamers regardless of what platforms they own as evidenced by Joker, Cloud and Richter, so really he wouldn't be too out of place. With a game of a roster this big, I feel like sticking to just reps with a history of Nintendo appearances would feel kinda limiting but that's just me.

@TheFrenchiestFry that'd be neat. I think Nintendo should go out of the box with some fighters. I don't know who they have left that would be a likely addition, or raise much excitement for that matter.

Give me a heads-up if you're going to send a request please.

TheFrenchiestFry

@Losermagnet Honestly the only characters who could possibly raise my hype levels even higher than Joker would be Raiden, DOOM Slayer, Dante, Viewtiful Joe or Travis Touchdown

@Blooper987 They wouldn't just say Nintendo approached them for Doom Slayer, and I don't think it necessarily matters that Vault Boy was in the latest batch of costumes. If anything, it shows Nintendo has been talking with Bethesda about Smash stuff. It's why I don't think Altair or the Rabbids hat debunk Rayman, who is the most likely Ubi rep by far - and you even said an Ubisoft rep is likely, so the same logic applies to Slayer (though id claimed they weren't approached, Ubisoft just hasn't said anything). Not saying either one is happening, but they're on fairly equal ground.

I am now 99% certain we’re getting a Zelda character. Whether it’s Impa or the champions I’ll be happy

@Blooper987 I'd take Link's annoying sister at this point

@Blooper987 Please let it be Mipha with her Trident and healing ability would make for a unique character in the roster!

How cool would it be if the trailer starts and it’s a man in a crash bandicoot costume shouting outside the Nintendo building. That would be the best smash announcement they could ever do.

I want a Dante trailer that starts with him fighting Joker with his Nocturne battle theme, and then ending with Devils Never Cry or Subhuman as he fights Bayonetta

@Blooper987 Can't start like that - it has to begin with a recreation of the infamous Smash 64 live-action ad before the man in the Crash outfit shows up
