Aaaaand waiting...

I'm scratching my head a bit on the page layout I'm working on for Rain.  Sure, I COULD just stretch it out into a two-pager, but I'm trying not to make more work for myself (as evidenced by my making more work for myself trying not to resort to what's probably necessary). XD

Sooooo~ I decided, "let me draw something else for now."  This is what happened.  Really, it should probably go in Scraps.  It's just something that'd been in my head for the past couple days and I was like it might be funny to draw it.  Eh.  It's okay.  Also, this is probably gonna get dated really fast (at least I hope, because that'll mean they're confirmed).  

And yeah, between this and my Lucina pic earlier this week, Smash Bros is on my mind a lot lately.  I've reached that level of antsiness I remember experiencing during the last months before Brawl's release.  It's actually kinda cool.  I feel like I'm such a jaded gamer sometimes, but once in a while, there's games like this that get me excited.  I'm just glad that I CAN still get this excited.  ^_^

This is so cute! I can imagine them playing a game of cards! :D Ness and Jigglypuff gotta be in the new Smash Bros game, they got to, they are veterans!

XD Nice job on this. ^^

Lol poor Ness and Jigglypuff. You think they would let their reveals come earlier being series veterans but Sakurai sure is dragging out the waiting time.

Lolz the wait sure is killer.... :laughing:

I like the backs off the cards, nice touch!

Oh my God I know, and I love the feeling.
Three months to go...
God I need a Wii U. @.@

I have no doubt in my mind that Ness will make a comeback. His "PK Thunder!" Is as iconic as Captain Falcon's "Falcon....PAWNCH!"
But I've had my doubts about Jigglypuf. As far as I can tell, no one I knew used her, no one was really crazy about her, and all she really stood out for was her Rest ability and its effectiveness on Giga Bowser.

Plus, they already have four Poke'mon characters confirmed. (Pikachu, Lucario, Charizard, Greninja.)

Dunno.

I'm probably going to play as Robin more than anyone else. Why you ask? Because she can switch from boy to girl. Yes, that's a very narrow interpretation but lacking any real amount of playable trans characters in games I'll take what I can get.

Heh. I was just thinking to myself "Wow. There's alot more female characters this time around. Even a few gender-fluids."

With that thought process, shouldn't Wii Fit Trainer and Villager be viable options as well?  Maybe even Pac-Man (I'm willing to put money on one of his alternate costumes being Ms. Pac-Man). XD
Emoroffle's avatar
Yes but the Wii fit Trainer is creepy. The villager is cute but not my style, but Ms. Pac-Man sounds interesting.

Neither of them were announced for Brawl before release. I'd assume the same thing will happen again.

D'aww, look at that little Ness! I hope he comes back (and I'm pretty sure he will), but to be honest I'd be okay with Jigglypuff sitting out.
Agreed. Jigglypuff was really only relevant back in Pokémon's first generation, and then only because of its role in the anime.

TV shows do not affect the chances of whether a video game character will make it in a Super Smash Bros. game or not. Therefore, Jigglypuff's absence in the Pokémon anime won't affect it's chances of making it to Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U. Same with Pac-Man, many people say that since he got a TV series,"Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures" they knew he was going to be included. Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures had NOTHING to do with Pac-Man's chances. Sakurai included Pac-Man mainly because his creators, Bandai Namco Games Incorporated, are helping with development. Jigglypuff has a really high chance of coming back, even if it hasn't gotten any Pokémon anime appearances since," A Poke-Block Party."

www.twitch.tv/yushako/b/567474… Which is why jigglypuff and ness were seen in this stream today. They are both back ^-^

Have you forgotten about fairy type? and the fact that ol Jiggles has that typing now? She could be revamped, I'd love some dazzling gleam or disarming voice, or since they don't care much about the actual learnsets play rough or moonblast

I love your Ness design. Have you considered an entire MOTHER ensemble?

Those playing cards are just... smashing!

Seriously, though, I have (almost) no doubt that Ness and Jigglypuff will be included.  They're part of the original 12, which have appeared in EVERY Smash game so far.  Plus, the Mother series is at a heightened relevance today, and - while the inclusion of four other Pokemon would normally make Jigglypuff iffy - the confirmation of five characters from Mario means we shouldn't be surprised to see five Pokemon.

As for the art, Ness is really done in your "style".  He looks like he could blend in with the rest of the cast at St. Hallvard!  Jigglypuff is definitely atypical of your usual subjects, but I like the way you made the eyes half-opened, conveying severe boredom with waiting.  Jigglypuff ain't taking none of Sakurai's shit. ;)

So who're your favorite characters in the lineup of new ones? Mine's definitely Mega Man, but I'm excited to get to play as Greninja too.
bugs92's avatar
Everyone but Lucina looks really unique and fun to play so far and I really appreciate the effort by the team working on the game. I don't think I could pick a favorite but I've always had a thing for joke characters... so Wii Fit Trainer is up my alley.

Yep, I hear she's quite popular among the Mario fans. I'm honestly glad Olimar is returning, as well. I played Pikmin 2 and I absolutely loved it.
