>different characters CAN be skins
>sakurai can add new clones on a whim
So many possibilities. All bets are off. Post clones, skins, and costumes.
Ridley is a charizard or bowser clone
Dr. mario and Dr. luigi costumes
roy costume for marth
black shadow is new falcon clone
pig ganon is bowser clone
and also pic related
Hold on a second. We don't know if the Lucina alt was just Marth's outfit in Awakening. You can't just create such a huge change like Ridley.
That being said, I'd like to see either these two, or Samurai Meta Knight.
Lucina was going to be an alt for Marth.
However, this doesn't mean that King Dedede now has Dark Matter for an alt. They should be close to the original character in some way.
Read the second to last paragraph. Seriously, you're really fucking behind.
here's hoping my beloved can find his way back to smash 4 now
It would have been better if Chrom got "smashed " off area since that is how characters are defeated in smash after all. They don't randomly lay down unless Jigglypuff puts them to sleep or something... Holy shit!
>Jigglypuff confirmed!!! for returning
>yfw the only characters that get alternate skins like this are the ones that have already been revealed.
Same shit happened with alternate costumes in Brawl. Wario got one, so everyone was like "OMG what costumes with other characters have?!"
Nothing. Calling it now.
That would make sense, except then that Miiverse post would be pointless.
>Black Shadow as another Falcon clone
>Pig Gannon as Bowser clone
The fuck? These are awful ideas, and I would rather have no more characters if we're going to get travesties like this.
However, even though Lucina shares her physical stats and techniques with Marth, the characteristics of their attacks differ. When two such similar characters function in an even slightly different manner, I give them a separate spot on the roster since that will affect battle records and whatnot. In that sense, you could say she was very lucky to join the fray!
She WAS going to be an alt, but because theyre a little different, she's not

SJWs would be so mad but my dick would be so happy
What's the relevance of this miiverse post? I never saw it before.
I still say not to expect much beyond what we've seen. Do I need to remind you of pic related? If Sakurai couldn't be arsed to make this into a real alt costume, just how many entirely new character models do you think they're going to bother creating?
Wreck-it Ralph and Fix-it Felix skins for Donkey Kong and Mario.
>Promote ORAS and get more interesting alts for Pikachu.
It'd be a win-win situation.
I know he said that. I just doubt the extent to which it will be implemented. I feel like we'll maybe get one or two more beyond what we've seen already, if any at all.
Did Sakurai post that picture of all the Mario Party costumes? I wanted to know the relevance of that.
Personally, a good recolor is just as good as an alt to me.
but this doesnt make any sence???
if you cut Chrom because he was gunna be just another swordsman like Marth and Ike.... Why add a character who is the exact same as Marth, just the swords differes...
Chrom could have easily had a different sword technique to Marth and Ike, to the point were he wouldnt be a clone in the moveset sense.. but Lucina is an exact copy and past clone, with the addition of her sword edge. what is the logic here?
It's not that hard to get.
Out of the two, Robin had more potential for a varied playstyle, mainly since he is a magic user, a type of FE character not playable in Smash before.
Lucina was always going to be in the game regardless of her being a different character or not. The way she's treated in the trailer simply shows she's a bonus for whoever likes her, while Robin is the "definitive" newcomer.
Too bad there aren't that many good recolors.
>The series has been around for 15 years, and neither Mario or Luigi have had pic related as alternate colors.
It fucking hurts.
no i get Rodbin 100%
its just when comparing Lucina or Chrom to add, why cut a character for being a simple swordsman, who cold have had more variety to his moves, and add a character who mirrors herself after an already established character.
>Already a Bowser skin in Project M
>with a much better Bowser that can actually compete
If you want him so bad, just get project M. You don't even have to mod your wii to play it!
1- buy 2GB SD card
2- buy SD card reader to USB
3- download project M
4- move extracted files to SD card
5- goto custom stages in Brawl and it loads up on its own
Those 2GB SD cards are getting harder to find though and you'd actually have to mod your wii to use an 8GB card for Project M.
nigga i want to play smash 4U not a brawl mod
Why not both?
They both have things the other doesnt, and can both be played casually if you put in the the effort for a first time setup
And that would have taken resources that could have this time be profitable to other, maybe more creative characters.
I understand Chrom not being in piss you off, but he's not exactly THAT interesting. Even in his game, he's horribly bland.
Well no, the whole reason Lucina made it in as separate was because she would be a clone. It was either her as a clone or just Robin with her as an alt. If she didn't take a miniscule amount of time she would not have been in. She is basically an extra.
ok i guess i was just seeing it differently when i read it
so Lucina was going to be in regardless and it was between Chrom or Robin, not Robin from the beginning and then between Lucina or Chrom
Yes I know that's what Sakurai said. Did he say it while posting that image? Because then that would be the RELEVANCE that I am looking for. As far as I know, that quote and the Mario party image are unrelated.
faggots actually shill for fan-made mods
Hope there's some colors out there. At least those take less work.
>Dio and Ragyo recolours
Sakurai pretty much said "lol it can be an alt costume as long as their abilities are exactly the same"
The better question is where people got the "alt costumes can never ever be different characters!" thing from because people kept forcing that so much like it was fact yet never posted a single source where sakurai said that.
