I actually just tuned in halfway through the stream and saw two Marths. I was like huh, did the character get announced already? Then I looked closer, turns out it was Byleth...
Kinda weird that they're breaking their third party character streak with this. I think Byleth is an okay addition, but probably would've been better for the second DLC pack. I also hate sword characters with a passion. Why always swords? Get some axes and spears in there or something. It's FE after all.
Anyway, at the very least I'm glad it's not Dante or some other character I don't give a toss about. Terry was bad enough. At least I know who Byleth is, having actually played the game.
Yea they could have at least added some lance/dagger/axe character instead. The FE sword meme is absolutely real. Regardless, this is an awful pick, IMO. I'd have rather seen Geno, Shantae, Dante, or almost anyone else than another Fire Emblem sword.
- represents all anime games
- represents Bandai Namco
- has been in more games than most Smash Fighter
- Goku is *the* ultimate fighter. It makes sense for him to want to fight the strongest game heroes.
Nobody knows, but imo there's a lot that'd made sense to have him in Smash. Public reaction would be mega hype imo.
We've got characters in this season pass you'd have never expected, out of 5 characters of the first pass, Nintendo only got 1, let them have it!
They were even too generous with the previous picks when you think about it: Nintendo got nothing from promoting Banjo that way for Microsoft, commercially speaking that move was kinda dumb, but they made it due to fans demand.
It's like we have now almost 100 characters in a fighting game, that is the largest roster ever and no fighting game would beat that anytime soon cause balancing such a large roster is a nightmare, and yet fans are not happy lol
I agree. It's what saves him. Honestly, the issue isn't the sword but rather that we have four characters that quite literally all play the same as they are based on Marth. If it weren't for that, the perception wouldn't be as negative.
