    So based on what we've seen what are the *realistic* possibilities for the dlc characters? Since it looks like Isaac is a assist trophy, can we still have Matthew represent golden sun?

    Anything's a possibility, five yet unrevealed. Banjo with Kazooie still seems like a natural fit, but I'm not sure they can get the rights. I'm also still hoping for a Golden Sun character, but if not then maybe Crono from Chrono Trigger? I'd also like to see Amaterasu but that seems like a long shot.

    As someone who shunned all of the "leaks", I thought it was a great direct. Really like the addition of the spirit fighters. Seems to be allowing them to add even more characters into the game that would otherwise be too minor to get in. I really wanted to see Melia in Smash U when they did the fan suggestions, and I was quite pleasantly surprised to see her there as a spirit fighter. Looks like the franchise is steering more and more into a love letter to video games in general with all the different series/developers being represented.

    Also Guile's theme.

    Now if only they would remove that bullshit soft cap of 50 Megabits/sec for Ethernet and Wireless, we'd all have more stable connections and less communication errors.

    Sakurai you madman you've done it again. Only you can make a fucking plant a viable fighter.

    Didn't know Super Smash is a Kirby game. xD
    With an intro like that, who wouldn't want to rescue them all.

    Yeah but we're assuming that spirits can't be characters. I think they can if they replace trophies.
    If even Geno isn't in then I don't really see the point of asking the fans what they wanted in a ballot then lol.

    Anything from Golden sun would be utterly bizarre at this point with Lucas tied up.

    I'd rather like them to churn out more Ken and Cloud level stuff, legendary 3rd parties characters from huge franchises. Crash, Lara Croft, that sort of thing, rather than Nintendo fanboy obscurities like Geno. Hopefully they can buy the licenses to something with that big DLC asking price.

    Just watched the direct and am happy to say as a banned user, I’m happy they recommended using a lan adapter. Free online play unless they figure out away to stop that from happening.

    I was sorta leaning towards disappointment towards the latter half of the direct, I was happy with the spirits mechanics and new characters (I am still surprised anyone took the grinch leak so seriously). But I am so happy I was shut up in the last part, happy that we got one last 'one last announcement'. I could not have wished for anything better. Even if it doesn't win, I seriously suspect this having a shot a game of the year.

    I've seen so many gameplay footage, I don't even have to play the game anymore. :D

    Smash can't win GOTY because it's releasing the day after the Game Awards.

    I agree that RDR2 is way better but BOTW is still the best exclusive of the generation (or Super Mario Odyssey if you don't consider BOTW an exclusive because it's also on WiiU)

    Last Direct: No one calling it a port, most people happy because a lot of suggested characters were making it in.

    This Direct: Due to some fake leak people got overhyped for no reason and believed. Due to it not being true people were massively upset and disappointed (due to their own fault and beliefs in shoddy news) and are now blaming Sakurai for it and calling the game a port again....

    I would just love to see the outrage these same people would have at Street Fighter V when they literally cut iconic characters from the roster and sold them as DLC...

    The people who are upset only have themselves to blame for believing some half-assed leak in the first place.
