Ninja? :blank:

Its Gray Fox

 

Ninja is his "nickname" - It's what he's called in the game credits call him.

 

I don't recall ever having to shield before grabbing...

There was two ways to grab, the Z button or R + A.

Gotta love the fact that he's shoving us in the face that Gray Fox is not playable.

 

I hope you can still use Z to grab. I always preferred Z.

Yeah Z was awesome :D

 

Though shield grabbing is very useful if your opponent is predictable; being able to grab them during their lag is always good.

We already know tails in it. He can help sonic recover by picking him up and flying him back up.

Um... Gray Fox is Ninja, you didn't always know he was Gray Fox, you just called him Ninja.

I thought it was 'Deepthroat'...Anyway, I feel it was a missed opportunity he wasn't playable. He had the unique weapon and stealth fighting abilities, he could have been a Sheik with a sword. Someone like Raiden should have been the assist. Now I'm going to spend the 10 or so years playing Brawl wishing he was playble.

I don't think he should've been anything more than an assist. If anyone should've been playable, it should've been some of the females such as Lyn that were made as assists. The game needed more female representation and would've liked to have seen more than just Krystal...

That was a play off the Watergate conspiracy in the US ;)

I like how they're not taking up a whole day to give us the not-so-cool-but-still-useful updates like the how to play ones, and yesterdays kinda wrapped up most of SSBM's items so we don't have to sit through 30+ days of items we know already

Ninja, Deepthroat, Grey Fox, Frank Jaeger, whatever... He's here, he has a sword and one eye, and he rocks!! That's a character that would be awesome as a playable one.

I like how they make it a double update when something trivial like grabbing is added to the site. Good to see a third party AT as well.

Ness not in Brawl just about confirmed:

 

There's a character named Ness who has appeared in the Smash Bros. series up until now, and Lucas is very similar. They are from the same family of PK users.

 

Do some removal of letters, what do you have?

 

Ness who has appeared... up until now

 

 

Look at his moveset, its far too similar to Ness's, I don't like the chances at all of Ness being in the game, I think this time round, hes gone... :blank:

I dont think they are massively similar. We havnt had one cloney type character yet. He seems as different from Ness as Luigi is from Mario in previous games.

Hmmm.

Lucas's moves are definatly different enough. Especially as he has his own PK Freeze and PK Fire seems very different to the one Ness had.

Lucas: Special Moves

 

There’s a character named Ness who has appeared in the Smash Bros. series up until now, and Lucas is very similar. They are from the same family of PK users.

 

But Lucas’s physical combat style is quite different. By which I mean he doesn’t have the same standard moves.

His strong up attack is a mentally-powered flip kick.

 

lucas_071108b-l.jpg

 

He unleashes a PK barrage on the ground with his down smash!

 

lucas_071108c-l.jpg

 

The finish of his back air attack is a meteor smash.

 

lucas_071108d-l.jpg

 

Oh! Is he grabbing the edge with his rope snake?!

 

Side Special Move: PK Fire

 

This is also quite different from Ness’s.

 

lucas_071108e-l.jpg

 

It flies perfectly sideways, even in the air.

 

lucas_071108f-l.jpg

 

The flame pillar explodes!

 

Standard Special Move: PK Freeze

 

lucas_071108g-l.jpg

 

If you charge it up and control it...

 

lucas_071108h-l.jpg

 

...you can freeze your opponents!

 

And even more threatening is his PK Thunder. For those of you unfamiliar with the last game, or the one before that, remember this well.

 

Up Special Move: PK Thunder

 

lucas_071108i-l.jpg

 

You guide the PK Thunder with the Control Stick...

 

lucas_071108j-l.jpg

 

...and hit yourself with it to launch!

 

Doing this helps you recover.

 

The angle you launch at depends upon the position at which the PK Thunder hits you. This launch also makes for a rather powerful attack, so I think it’s fine to even try it unexpectedly.

 

Down Special Move: PSI Magnet

 

This move absorbs the energy of projectile and other attacks and uses it to recover Lucas’s damage. It has a wide range of effectiveness, so give it a try when you get the chance.

 

lucas_071108k-l.jpg

 

If an enemy uses a projectile, that’s your chance.

[/Quote]

 

So he has three of the same special moves as Ness, Up-B,Side-B and Down-B. But they still are a bit different except for his Up-B and Down-B. His normal attacks are a lot different as well. I'm not counting Ness out yet.

Lucas actually seems fine, however, I probably won't use him much as he seems to have the same recovering ability as Ness had, and I didn't like that. Too complicated.

 

Also, this means Ness won't return, I guess:

"There’s a character named Ness who has appeared in the Smash Bros. series up until now, and Lucas is very similar."
