As well as the grand reveal of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's final fighter, Sora, the next round of Mii Fighter costumes have also been revealed.
During today's presentation, hosted by series director Masahiro Sakurai, it was revealed that both Octoling and Judd from the Splatoon series, as well as DOOM Slayer from, well, DOOM, will be available later this month.
They'll be priced at $0.75 each and can be purchased from 18th October, the same day as the launch of new fighter, Sora.
A nice final collection? Are you happy that Doomguy has made it into the game in some form? Share your thoughts below.
Well thats one speculation to cross off the list. Earthworm Jim it is then 😂
Yes. First, first post too 🏆
Realistically, would a dedicated DOOM protagonist have been much different to the Mii Gunner?
I would have preferred a DOOM monster instead (we already have too many human characters), but this is neat as well.
Final Mii Fighter costumes
Sora vs Doomguy. What.
I have so little knowledge about both Doom and Halo that I thought at first that this is Master Chief lol
@mariomaster96 if it is master chief then i would consider that a total waste. Plenty of characters id rather see over MC. Personally i think they should put in a Rathian from monster hunter 😂😂
Are First-Person Shooter characters in Smash? Doomguy's costume is the closest thing, right?
Atleast its something
@Stubborn_Monkey : Samus has also starred in FPS games.
Doom guy for sure will be popular
More excited for Doom Slayer than Sora, but I'm sooooorely disappointed that Doom Slayer doesn't come with music! Huge missed opportunity!
As I have no history with Kingdom Hearts, I am much more excited about that Doomguy costume than about Sora
A lot more different and unique than a another counter attack character I imagine, Sora has so many reused specials that he’s like a 3D fighter final boss who uses nothing but other fighter’s moves.
I love how he's midget proportioned.
A music theme would make the suit much better. But again, I suppose is the final bane of the Mii costumes that come from "big" third parties.
RIP Doom fans.
Welp y'all got your Isabelle and Doomguy! Meme away!
@Silly_G The Metroid Prime games are not exactly First-Person Shooters, but yeah, that's true.
But where’s Majora’s Mask?!? Guess I’m keeping Smash 4 after all…
I had a feeling he wouldn't be a main character, but even as a mii this rocks. Better than Sora...
im seriously pissed at this choice sora really barely has any games with him on the main nintendo consoles while doom games have been on the past systems to switch.Making doomslayer a mii costume is a joke along with travis touchdown as well both being wasted as costumes.
Missed opportunity to not include a music track alongside this Mii costume!
Let's face it, Doomguy is as generic as the Mii themselves so I'm glad he's just a costume in the game.
So we can finally get that Doomguy/Isabelle team-up we've been wishing for!
Better than the fighter It's Byleth all over again.
Probably the best part of the direct for me and it's really only for the Splatoon based hats. Still, I'm happy with how much content is in the game, truly an amazing experience. Not everything in it is my thing but that's okay, we all have our favourites!
Instead of getting Sora, I'll get the DOOM Slayer costume, way cooler hahaha. Happy for KH fans, but Sora was kinda like the obvious choice. The Slayer would have made a better choice, but what's done is done.
@Specter_of-the_OLED speak for yourself dude most smash gamers wanted doomslayer to be part of the roster for a quite along time and making him and travis touchdown a mii outfit is a slap in the face since they been on the nintendo systems much longer then sora ever has.
A Doom Level with the Cyber Demon (classical) shooting Rockets from behind would be cool.
Or just changing Monsters and Games, Spider Mastermind shooting with the Gattling, Hell Knight roaming around etc.
Doomslayer is a cool Mii costume fighter "skin". Not sure about the two octoling characters tbh. I would have prefered better choices for mii costumes . Maybe Impa since she never made it to Smash.
The lack of Bethesda representatives as Fighters is baffling. Square-Enix is really getting all this special treatment. If you count the number of characters they have as Fighters, we now have 7 Square-Enix Fighters (Hero splits into 4). That's more than how many Zelda Fighters we currently have.
@RiasGremory so people still think Smash is a celebration of Nintendo instead of gaming as whole?
Good to know…
Shame they didn't put isabelle and the mii fighter next to each other, missed opportunity there
I was surprised at how few Mii costumes there were. I've only ever bought the Cuphead one anyway but I was expecting a whole line up of the most wanted characters who didn't get in to be there as Miis. I'm not upset by it, and Doomslayer may be my second mii costume purchase, but I was surprised.
Doom Guy is cool, even if its just a mii costume.
Pretty sweet to see Fallout, DOOM and Elder Scrolls all get reps through mii costumes.
A Smash Bros. Mii Fighter Costume DLC Collection including all the individual releases would be nice if it's for cheap.
I've never bothered to get any of these Mii costumes because it's a hassle and not worth it to purchase each one to me... especially since the Switch Eshop inexplicably still doesn't have a cart option to purchase more than one item at a time smh. A bundle or collection would be nice and likely sell more than the individual packs, even more fitting now that all the post-release content has come to an end imo.
... Wun can only hope.
DOOM!!!!!!! RIP AND TEAR!!!
I'm getting the Doom Slayer Skin. The rest is nothing special.
I was also disappointed- hoped for Leon Kennedy-since RE4 originated on Nintendo GC, or Doomslayer:(((( since Doom has been loyal to Nintendo and released on many N platforms, plus the best port was Eternal- Doom so deserved to be the main character!!!! Sora isn’t bad but another sword fighter:/ at least the soundtrack is great!
Chibi Doomguy > Doomguy
Doomguy + Isabelle is finally a reality!!
And in my opinion, a Mii fighter costume fits perfectly. Honestly speaking, outside of comparable gun attacks and melees, a main-character Doomguy would have been too grisly for Smash. This might also be why they decided against a Mortal Kombat rep.
The amount of fun video game character mashups is staggering. Team up with Isabelle and Doomguy Vs Sephiroth and Kazuya!
This is so cool. Thank you Sakurai (and Nintendo) for everything. You deserve so much respect for what you've done with this game. Oh, and one more thing. Now it's safe to say: WALUIGI WILL NEVER BE A SMASH BROS ULTIMATE FIGHTER. HAHAHAHA, SCREW YOU WALUIGI. SAKURAI HATES YOU, NINTENDO HATES YOU! HAHAHAAA. NINTENDO REGRETS CREATING YOU!! AAAHAHAHA!!! I'm loving this.
I think this is actually better than an actual Doom Guy. This is cool!
Who knew doom could be so adorbs?
Would have preferred Master Chief to Sora but I'm at least glad it wasn't a meme pick.
@Azuris : There could have been a stage based on the Icon of Sin in DOOM II, where hostile character clones (or DOOM monsters if they’re feeling really ambitious) will target players (and can fight each other).
Aagh, I hate that I just came up with such a cool idea. What a wasted opportunity.
By time of release:
Travis Touchdown first game on Nintendo: 2007 (Japan) 2008 (rest of the World). Exclusive for 3 years.
Sora first game on Nintendo: 2004 (Japan and America) 2005 (rest of the world). Exclusive for 3 years.
By number of games:
No More Heroes: 4 (2 on Wii, 2 on Switch).
Kingdom Hearts: 5 (1 on GBA, 2 on NDS, 1 on 3DS and 1 on Switch).
I'm totally fine with DoomGuy just being a mii fighter, but if this had come with one music track it would be perfect.
@Stubborn_Monkey I think you can also count Vault Boy from the modern Fallout series but you have the option to be first-person and third-person but I think most people prefer the first-person route.
@bimboliquido smash is suppose to be games from the past to current so yes doomslayer and even travis touchdown should been part of the roster.
@Stubborn_Monkey The metroid prime games are absolutely first person shooters. They meet all the criteria. Sure they are action-adventure FPS games, but you're in the first person and your primary means of interacting with the world is to shoot.
And now the desired roster is complete, in one way or another
Except for Crash though, I wonder where he was...
@Chlocean Yeah, that's a very good point. It's just that they're not conventional FPS games - things like platforming and Morph Ball sections (and using the Grapple Lasso in Corruption), puzzles and exploration, plenty of scanning, not constantly getting weapons or collecting ammo (Echoes had ammo, but still)... And then there's the fact that non-Prime Metroid games aren't First-Person Shooters, so perhaps that's why I didn't think of Metroid when I wrote about FPS characters not being in Smash. But you do have a point.
I didn't mean to bash the games or anything like that, Retro's Prime games are great (especially the first one) - it's just that they're not the first thing that comes to my mind when I think about First-Person Shooters.
Does this mean we get Doom music or no?
