@Glen-ihow many time left to finalize our predictions?

More hyped for this thread than the actual Direct!

You've got until the moment the Direct starts.

Calling it now, this was a subtle hint:

309455_1.jpg

1) Chibi-Robi in Smash

2) Rex from Xenoblade

3 & 4) 2 ARMS characters, gonna go with Spring Man and Ribbon Girl

5) Shovel Knight (it's time)

6) Banjo-Kazooie

7) Eevee (which can evolve)

8) "Dapper" Bowser (in full Odyssey outfit)

9) Rabbid Peach

10) Box Boy

Stages:

1) ARMS stage, maybe Ribbon Gril's

2) Splatoon stage, probably Inkblot Academy or the one with the bridge in the middle (the name escapes me)

3) B&W Box Boy stage

Most are safe bets, but it can go every direction. I hope they keep a lot of the Smash 4 characters in like Mega Man, Bayonetta, Robin etc.

Newcomers

1) Decidueye (Pokémon)

The guy is popular and can be a good replacement for the fast Greninja

2) Alolan Raichu (Pokémon)

With Let's Go announced, I think we can do with some more first generation Pokémon! At first I thought Eevee, but I think Alolan Raichu can replace Mewtwo and Lucario.

3) Spring Man (ARMS)

Nintendo still wants to make ARMS happen, so I think this is a safe bet. Maybe Twintelle for her popularity and more female characters.

4) Funky Kong (Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze)

Because Funky Mode.

5) Ridley (Metroid)

Make it happen, it is time!

6) Rex (Xenoblade Chronicles 2)

Too bad for Shulk who is way cooler, but I think Rex takes his place.

7) Olberic (OCTOPATH TRAVELER)

Out with the Fire Emblem swordfighters, in with some new ones!

8) Musashi (Sushi Striker)

Another new IP to push.

9) Solaire (Dark Souls)

The guy gets an amiibo, so I guess he can also get a spot in Smash

10) Steve (Minecraft)

If there is any chance of a Microsoft character, my money is on this guy.

New stages

1) New Donk City, with Pauline singing in the background. Maybe including a switch to a 2D version halfway?

2) Inkopolis Square, with Pearl and Marina singing in the background. Yes, more singing in the background! Changing to the night version of a Splatfest occasionally.

3) Snipperclips stage, similar to the PictoChat stage were pieces are being clipped off.

My Smash Newcomers

  1. Ice Climbers (Ice Climber) Because... they were cut due to technical limitations before.
  2. Wolf (Star Fox) Because... Can't let you do that... Star Fox!
  3. Paper Mario (Paper Mario) Because... Paper!
  4. Rex (Xenoblade) Because... that English voice-over though.
  5. Spring Man (ARMS) Because... Boing!
  6. Bomberman (Bomberman) Because... Boom!
  7. Banjo-Kazooie (Banjo-Kazooie) Because... Childhood memories of Rare
  8. Rick (Kirby) Because... Hamster!

 

Tie Breaker Stage Predictions

  1. Battle Arena (Bomberman)
  2. Rougeport (Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door)
  3. New Donk City (Super Mario Odyssey)

That's my lazy cut 'n paste last minute, slightly altered entry, take it or leave it. :p

I HAD THIS READY BUT IT DIDN'T LET ME POST.

 

 

Yooka Laylee may appear.

 

I want a Golden Sun character to imply the series is being carried on.

Any Tales characters

...I had Snake as a returnee, but then I decided Konami wouldn't play ball, so I replaced him with Takamaru.

Goddammit. The only thing I got right was the Ice Climbers returning.

Bomberman featuring... but only as an assist character, that was the biggest disappointment, so close.

We had so many hopes.. :( :indeed:

I still fully expect new character reveals before and after launch. Rex absolutely needs to be there. And they can't bring a new Fire Emblem protagonist if the game itself isn't out yet.

I'm pretty sure Smash Bros did that twice already.

OK then! Let's go down the new Playable Characters!

Daisy correctly predicted by:

Nobody!

ss_3.jpg

Ice Climbers Correctly predicted by:

@Glen-i @markderoos, @Jonnas @Ugh first aid @GenericAperson @Nintendo Fan @Fused King @Dcubed @Julius Caesar @S.C.G

ss_2.jpg

Pichu correctly predicted by:

Not a single bloody person!

ss_4.jpg

Young Link predicted by:

Everyone, no wait... No-one. Yeah, no-one.

ss_2.jpg

Squirtle correctly predicted by:

Nope, we all suck

ss_3.jpg

Ivysaur correctly predicted by:

All the people who predicted Squirtle.

ss_6.jpg

Wolf correctly predicted by:

@Glen-i @markderoos @Ugh first aid @Nintendo Fan @Fused King @Dcubed @S.C.G @Julius Caesar

ss_4.jpg

Snake correctly predicted by:

@markderoos

ss_4.jpg

Ridley correctly predicted by:

@Fused King @Vileplume2000

Now it's time for the avenue of crushed dreams. The characters we now know are not playable. Minus points for these losers!

Waluigi @bob @RedShell @Julius Caesar

Lyn @Jonnas @Ugh first aid @Julius Caesar

Takamaru @Jonnas

Bomberman @Glen-i @Nintendo Fan @Fused King @Dcubed @Julius Caesar @S.C.G

Alolan Raichu @Vileplume2000

Yeah, no-one expected the no cuts. It's beautiful! With the returning Veterans, we're at 9 characters revealed now.
Alolan Raichu was just shown as a Pokeball item Pokemon during treehouse. Sorry. Pichu is more important. Bomberman totally killed in the disappointment there. 6 people getting screwed in the points department there. I'm gonna look through the screenshots of the websites to see if I can spot any other dreams to stamp on.

And here's how the points are tallied up.

  1. @markderoos: 3 points
  2. @Fused King: 2 points
  3. @Glen-i @Ugh first aid@GenericAperson@Nintendo Fan@Dcubed@S.C.G: 1 point
  4. @Vileplume2000@Nicktendo@EEVILMURRAY@Mandalore: 0 points
  5. @Jonnas@bob@RedShell@Julius Caesar: -1 point
Edited by Glen-i
Forgot about Mandalore. Sorry, Mandalore.

Not to be too much of a sore loser, but I think I might be owed a point? :p

310?cb=20110824213545

I was surprised to learn that Wolf wasn’t in Smash 4, so I expect him to make his return this time around. 

Not that I made a few other guesses too many... :D I’m probably happier with the roster that we’ve got than the roster that I predicted anyways! ::shrug:

I'm still holding out hopes.

@Glen-i is this going to be ongoing? I assume they'll announce a few more, but has the deadline shut now forever?

Yep, until it gets released, this will be ongoing, so it's not over yet.

But I'm not gonna accept any new entries or editing of previous predictions. Edit your post now and you'll get minus 100 points.

Why would I need to?  Clearly Rick will be in it.

I heard a rumout that New Donk City has been shown as a stage?

Well...

Remember, stages are only used in a Tie Break situation when the game is out.

@Glen-i

Thanks for keeping this going, man. I'll finally be getting a Switch soon with Breath of the Wild, so I am definitely trying to get back into the gaming groove nowadays.

Can't believe Bomberman was so casually announced! I do hope it forweshadows the rumoured Simon Belmont reveal along with a slick Castlevania Switch collection, and you can bet your ass that Travis Touchdown will be in this!
