This can't be happening, Maibros...
Sakurai sees Mai taunting Andy with baby puppets and blacklists her from Smash like he's Santa Claus.

Interesting, this will be the first time a DLC character is revealed and explored in-depth in the same presentation (at least for Ultimate).

That's 8am for me. I'm technically "at work", but classes don't actually start until 9, so I can watch it. :)

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

If you need to give Self Insert-kun weapons from the characters people actually like then something probably went wrong, lol

Six more DLC characters are coming. The hype train never ends.

As long as it's not another FE swordie, then everything will be just f--

BYLETH (Fire Emblem: Three Houses)
--selectable gender: odd #s male, even #s female. Defaults, House leaders, Sothis, some kind of spoiler
--weapon controlled directionally
--Sword of the Creator: jab, tilt, dash, up smash, up special, Uair, turns into whip for some attacks
--Areadbhar (polearm, "sideways input"): side smash, side special, Fair/Bair, tipper
--Aymr (axe, "down inputs"): down smash, down special, Dair
--Failnaught (bow, "neutral attacks"): neutral special, Nair
--poor mobility & grab/throw
--B: chargeable but only fires at full charge, but can double-charge
--Side B: Melee version of Kirby's Hammer
--Up B: tethers, can attack after, can be reused if it hits (a la Falcon Dive)
--Down B: super armor, can drop through platforms during windup, reversible, big AOE
--Final: "Progenitor God Ruptured Heaven" because Japan

Stage: Garreg Mach Monastery, & try saying that without a Scottish accent
--2.5 min cycle through 4 locations
--Marketplace: "walkoff" breakable shopfronts, Blue Lion House characters in background
--Reception Hall: flat walkoff, breakable chandeliers, Black Eagle House characters in background
--Bridge: wider flat walkoff, Golden Deer House characters in background
--Cathedral: walkoff w/soft platforms, background characters have mystery
--11 new songs, which will also be added to other FE stages

Mii costumes:
--Swordy: Altair (Assassin's Creed)
--Gunny: Mega Man X, Mega Man.EXE, Cuphead (includes "Floral Fury" music)
--All: Rabbid hat

Other:
--9 new spirit fights
--Classic route: "A Heroic Legacy", FE retrospective
--New Amiibo: Richter & Dark Samus, available 1/17 (tomorrow)
--There will be 6 more characters, all already decided. Volume 2 bundle preorder available 1/28, bonus Ancient Soldier Mii costume.

Other notes:
--Recorded in November
--Sakurai can count in binary on his fingers
--Sentences to try repeating out of context: "He may or may not end up with just one eye."
--"You're bound to get naming overlap after 17 games with 40 characters each" he says of a series with characters named Corrin & Byleth.
--Sakurai reverse 5-stocks the CPU in Squad Strike after intentionally SDing 4 times.
--He recommends multiple types of gameplay. Hint-hint.
--Stream crashes after he says "The End."
--Casting doubt on whether all the releases of Street Fighter 2 count as a single game.
--Let this man sleep.

At least it isn't a 5th Marth.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

All will be forgiven when Sakurai Does the Right Thing and announces Kid Dracula as a DLC fighter. And then it will be angrily and perhaps arbitrarily unforgiven when the Summoner from FEH is the 6th DLC character.

That is literally the worst thing they could've done, I can't believe I didn't see it coming. Pong would've been legitimately more interesting as a character.

At least the level of self-awareness in the video was off the charts, they knew this wasn't what people wanted but their marketing team did.

^And I will also at least give props for making some attempt at differentiating Blythe from the other FE characters. They're clearly not a Marth clone, there's no counter, there's a projectile, there's multiple weapons (even though 2 of them essentially just function as long swords) & there's nothing at all like Robin.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"
