    Well, I got the SMT rep I was talking about haha. Been asking for one for years, always my number 1 choice. Would've preferred something from the mainline but love me some Persona too. :thumb

    So does that mean we're getting Persona 5 on the Switch as well with this reveal? I mean it otherwise seems a bit weird to bring a character in from a franchise where its games have been largely on a rival system.

    In hindsight, I think we should've saw Joker coming, since Sakurai expressed his enjoyment of Persona 5 and how it influenced the UI. That being said, I'm super hyped.

    I heard piranha plant can be downloadable free if you have some kind of Nintendo account. Does anyone know how that works? I don't think I have an account or don't remember if I do.

    If you have a physical copy, you need a Nintendo account, then claim the gold coins, and then Nintendo will email a code to you within 72 hours.

    None taken.

    Press +/- when you're on the main menu on the Switch and Super Smash Bros Ultimate is surrounded by a glowing square. Then, select My Nintendo Rewards Programme. Then choose the account which will receive these coins.

    This process also works for all physical copies of Switch games.

    You know that they especially hate Waluigi when they start adding characters from 3rd party games before they consider adding him.
    Also, Persona? Really? Before hundreds of first-party characters that they could have added to bolster game series representation? I mean, I don't have anything against the persona series in any way, but I would have rather seen certain Nintendo series reps in the game first, like Black Shadow and/or Jody Summer from F-zero or Bandana Waddle Dee from Kirby for example.
    I feel like they're adding characters just for the hell of it with no rhyme or reason for each dlc addition.

    Waluigi and Geno suck and their fanbase sucks and they do not deserve to be in the game if ONLY because of their fanbase now.

    You mean Nintendo is paying for UA3?

    Maybe a Switch Exclusive Spider-Man. ;)

    wouldn't that break the "characters originating from video games" rule, though? like, the only basic rule keeping smash from just being a fighting game with millions of characters from every form of media?

    Ok. Guys be sure to scan any and every amiibo that is not a smash series into the game to get power spirits for adventure mode!

    He's already in the game as an Assist Trophy. Some people need to accept that and move on.

    We still have four spots left for DLC, so I'm sure Nintendo will have at least three of those spots represent their own series. I'd like to see Mach Rider or Balloon Fighter make it as fighters, but OH NO THEY'RE SPIRITS SO THEY CAN'T BE PLAYABLE DURR HURR HURR! Fuck I hate that theory. Nobody from Nintendo, Bandai-Namco, or Sakurai have said anything about Spirits not becoming playable fighters in the future. We had trophies of Mewtwo and Lucas in Smash 4 BEFORE they were added in as DLC fighters, nobody complained there.

    I do have to agree that Persona is a bit of an odd choice to add to the growing number of franchises in Smash. I mean no hate against anyone who plays it, however.

    ...Well, we do have a Piranha Plant as a fighter, so it's pretty much an "anything goes" type situation with Ultimate here. Personally, if we're going to predict who the remaining four fighters are left for the game, we should start thinking not which highly-requested characters would make it (like Banjo-Kazooie and Geno), but rather which characters that have appeared on a Nintendo system that would NEVER fit in a Smash game.

    EDIT: Meant to say Lucas instead of Ness as far as Smash 4 DLC fighters are concerned. DERP!
