Los Santos was, even on its best days, a very dangerous place to live. Sure, it had all the appearances of a high-quality city with sprawling streets, huge businesses and residential complexes as far as the eye could see. But it was a pretty obvious fact to everyone in the city that Los Santos attracted a lot of bad people, capable of doing very-illegal, very-dangerous things on a daily basis. The citizens could sometimes not even go a week without a plane exploding or a thirty-car pileup slowing down traffic or even a wild gunfight between two psychotic gangs.

(Island of Medici)

Medici was a simple island, yet developed enough to have large cities and power plants scattered throughout the island. Up until very-recently, there had been…A lot of explosions on the island, and the citizens were sometimes worried about getting caught in the crossfire when a building or a bridge or a highly-explosive power plant blew up, but thankfully things seem to have died down after the tyrannical government had recently been overthrown…With extreme prejudice.
Rico Rodriguez sat back in a beach chair, looking out at the sea as the sun was starting to set over the horizon. He honestly couldn’t remember the last time he took the time to enjoy the sunset, as most of his time until recently was made up of him blowing something up in an effort to free his home island of Medici from the iron grip of Di R

(Ganon’s Tower)

Hyrule was devastated, plunged into a land of darkness thanks to a shady man getting his hands on the Triforce of Power from under the noses of the Hyrule royal family, save for the princess that mysteriously vanished shortly afterwards. Ganondorf, the Gerudo man from a desert in the far reaches of Hyrule, used the Triforce of Power to take over the land, infect it with monsters and rule from Hyrule Castle with an iron fist.
Ganondorf stood at the highest point of the castle, staring out a glass window at the land he had redesigned in his image. He had ruled Hyrule for seven years now, and had recently heard of a young man dressed in green that was in the process of reclaiming Hyrule, destroying his generals in every sage temple and, slowly but surely, undoing everything he had done to the kingdom that he had worked so h

Survivor CH8: Day 39
(Charmandeer Tribe)
“I was so nervous back there! I really thought Joshua could vote me out, but instead he took Slippy out. I don’t think I was ever so relieved to not see my name on a ballot before. Still, it sucks seeing Slippy go like that, one day from the finals.” Sophie noted. “That said, if I was in Josh’s shoes and was forced to vote one of them out I probably would have voted Slippy out as well. I liked him and all but…Yeah, I don’t think I could have beat him in the end.”
For the first time in the entire game, Sophie latched onto Joshua in a grateful hug. “You have no idea how thankful I am that you kept me, Josh!” She thanked. “I was so worried back there!”
Joshua couldn’t help but chuckle. “Yeah…I have to admit it was actually a pretty easy choice. Don’t take it personally but I felt Slippy was a way bigger threat.” He replied.

Survivor CH8: Ponderosa 6
(Ponderosa)
It was a cloudy, overcast day on the Ponderosa island. It wasn’t raining (not yet, anyway), so the people on the resort island were still out and about, but most people were carrying umbrellas as a precautionary, knowing that it could rain at a moment’s notice.
As if you were expecting something else to happen, the familiar limo driver was racing towards the Ponderosa mansion at breakneck speeds. The only major difference between now and before was that now the limo somehow had jet boosters duct-taped to the back to increase the already-very-illegal speeds the maniac driver was going at even further past the point of sanity.
The limo drover straight towards the mansion, purposefully driving towards part of the curb and launching the limo into the air as it got close to the mansion. The limo corkscrewed in the air several times, landed perfectly on its wheels and came to a perfect, drifting, screeching halt in front of the front doors. The force of the lim

Survivor CH8: Day 38 Part 2
(Immunity Challenge)
The final three paddled into the basin and, seeing the host, started making their way over to the shore to get out of the boat. The final three approached the shore, ran aground and got out, seeing that SSBFreak was standing on the beach in front of three branching paths.
“Welcome to the final challenge of the season, guys. I hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane, reminiscing about your fallen comrades and how you managed to outlast them to become the final three this season. However, we still need to cut one of you before we have our finale, which is where this challenge comes in. Here, in a season filled to the brim with the zany quirkiness of Crash Bandicoot, we will test your ability to get through an actual level.” SSBFreak said, beckoning the finalists to gaze at the branching paths, showing that at least the start of the paths looked completely-identical and were covered in jungle foliage, much like an actual Crash Bandicoot level.

Danganronpa Fic Cast 1: Meet Drake Williams
I've been toying with a DR fic idea for the last while and, while it'd still be a ways off, I figured I could at least reveal a potential cast of eighteen for it. Will anything come from it? Maybe. I've got a lot of potential plot points in mind, anyway...

Drake Williams
Talent - Ultimate Clown
Height – 5’4”
Weight – 143 lbs
Likes – Horror movies
Dislikes – Pollen

About Drake - Drake, despite what people assume about most other clowns, actually loves his line of work. He grew up as the eldest brother of three and found that he was able to keep his younger sisters entertained through the use of self-created slapstick and physical comedy. Finding enjoyment in seeing his sisters smiling and laughing at his antics, Drake trained to become a professional clown. He joined a local circus that performs throughout the summer and became a hit with the children attendees, quickly becoming a star performer among the other clowns. Although not acrobatic enough to pull off the stunts that a few other clowns were capable of in the circus, Drake continually pushes himself to learn new ways to perform and entertain.

It was Drake's love of performing and dedication to his work that attracted the attention of Hope's Peak Academy, earning him the title of Ultimate Clown, something that Drake himself was surprised at when he got the invite to the school. Drake attends Hope's Peak with the intention to improve his skills further, now knowing that being an Ultimate comes with a higher expectation. Drake's known to be a bit of a class-clown...After all, that's why he got the invite in the first place, but he still takes his talent seriously and always seems to find a way to make people smile...Or, at least, that's what his goals are...
Loading...
  • Listening to: Nintendo music
  • Watching: Nintendo Direct
  • Playing: Death Road to Canada
Okay. A bit late to this one because I had work today, but now it's time for what will most-likely be the last Smash Direct before the game launches. I've heard rumours and "leaks" and stuff like that, but I'm one who never believes anything I hear until it's revealed by the company themselves. At least that way I won't be let down when certain "leaks" turn out to be false, anyway. Okay, then. Let's get this going. :)

Ken Echo Fighter
A lot of people were saying this would be a sure thing and, while I know it was probably easy to make an Echo Fighter of Ryu there's no real question that they're...Pretty much the exact same character. Part of me still wonders why not just have Ken as a couple alternate outfits for Ryu. That said, I'm surprised that they gave Ken a CGI intro because all the other Echos except Richter weren't given special trailers...

Okay, so Ken has two Final Smashes like Ryu, but one of them is different. That's interesting...

...Oh, wait. This is going to be a big reveal trailer for a couple characters. Okay, then.

Incineroar Newcomer
And here's our current generation Pokémon rep. A lot of people were expecting it to be Incineroar, especially after Mimikyu was confirmed as a Pokeball Pokémon. I guess he counts as a bit of a grappler fighter, which I guess the series has been lacking, and from the looks of things he's definitely a more-physical fighter than a few of the other Pokémon characters...

Last new challenger, though? So would that be all the characters or do we still have an Echo or two to be revealed. The direct IS 40 minutes, after all...Nope, looks like Incineroar was the last one.

Fighter Roster
The starting roster is only the original eight fighters from the N64 game. That means there's a LOT to unlock and it'll be fun to do so. :)

Amiibo
The new Amiibos look awesome, though the Inkling's Amiibo seems to bear a very close resemblance to her Splatoon one. I'd probably skip on that one because of that, but everyone else's looks amazing.

Spirits
So these Spirits are what we'll be collecting instead of Trophies? The idea's neat but I'll definitely miss collecting the trophies. It was always fun to collect a new trophy and add to the collection. Kind of looks like the Spirits are sort of taking the place of Stickers or Power-Ups. All in all it looks like an interesting new mode but I know a lot of people were sort of expecting a new story mode and I feel they'll be disappointed with it.

Online Stuff
Honestly it looks like a lot of the online stuff is similar to what it was in Wii U. That said, the addition of the "Elite" rankings like in Splatoon 2 is interesting. I doubt I'd get good enough to make it to that point because it'd probably involve a LOT of EXP grinding for your levels.

Voice chat's a thing as well, but honestly I never really use it. I didn't use it with Splatoon and I probably won't here, either.

Assist Trophies
Shadow - Yeah, I figured he wouldn't be an Echo. His moveset differs enough from Sonic, anyway.
Takamaru - Good to see him back again but I still wish Nintendo would try to resurrect his franchise.
Starman - This guy was kind of an annoying Assist Trophy before. At least now that we can fight some of them in return maybe we can return the favour.
Nightmare - I guess there's always got to be a few Assists that screw over everyone.
Pong - Yeah, this returning one's not a surprise. I actually kind of thought it was a funny Assist.
Yuri from Fatal Frame - I definitely didn't see this one coming, especially since Fatal Frame is...Kind of a dormant franchise right now...
Isaac - Looks like the leak was wrong. No playable Isaac this time around.
Black Knight - Cool-looking character and I know he was a popular Fire Emblem request.
Thwomp - Oh, that actually looks hilarious. :) Plus, I doubt this is one you can fight back against.
Spring Man - I'm glad he's here but I had a feeling Arms was too new an IP to show up as a playable character since Smash had probably been in development for quite a while now.
Dr. Wily - Always glad to see some more classic Megaman representation here, and seeing Wily in his boss capsule in always fun to see. :)
Mario Paint Flyswatter - I honestly didn't see this coming but it makes total sense because I know everyone loved that minigame and it keeps showing up in other games these days. :)
Tiki - I'll be honest. Because I never played Fire Emblem I don't really know who she is, but I know the fans of the series will probably really like seeing her here.
Vince - Art Academy? Wow. That's a bit of an unusual choice, especially since we already have Nikki here.
Guile - The Street Fighter Assist. Always good to see him show up. I always liked playing as him in the old games.
Akira - Virtual Fighter representation is always nice, but I'm surprised that they went for the polygonal design of the original games. Maybe it was to keep him from looking like Ryu...

Century Smash
I guess this is just the Multi-Man Melee with a new name? Kind of looks like it...

Challenges
I like the new layout for sure. I always had fun with the challenges and the rewards that I got for beating them.

Mii Customization
I'm glad that there's still the custom movesets and clothing here for the Mii characters. That was one of the reasons for creating Mii characters in the first place for a lot of people.

DLC
I knew this was coming, and now it looks like they're planning on releasing at least a few more fighters as DLC. Plus they'll all be newcomers since every previous character is already returning here. :)

Piranha Plant Newcomer?
Wait, this is really a thing? Wow, I definitely didn't see this coming. But Sakurai said that it was only a limited-time offer if you purchased the game "now". I've already pre-ordered the game, so I wonder if that means I get it too...Okay, it's just something you need to register the game on your MyNintendo account for. This is definitely interesting and a Free DLC character is always welcome, no matter how ridiculous it may be. :)

Adventure Mode
Okay, it looks like there's a new adventure mode after all. That's good. It looks like it'll be fun, at least. I wonder how long it is, though...

All in all it looks like the new Smash is getting built up to be something real fun and something I'll likely put a lot of time into playing when it releases. I hope that the game's going to live up to all the hype but from the looks of things it's definitely not going to disappoint. :)

(Streets of Los Santos)


Los Santos was, even on its best days, a very dangerous place to live. Sure, it had all the appearances of a high-quality city with sprawling streets, huge businesses and residential complexes as far as the eye could see. But it was a pretty obvious fact to everyone in the city that Los Santos attracted a lot of bad people, capable of doing very-illegal, very-dangerous things on a daily basis. The citizens could sometimes not even go a week without a plane exploding or a thirty-car pileup slowing down traffic or even a wild gunfight between two psychotic gangs.

Traffic rolled down the freeway just outside of the huge city of Los Santos, the citizens going about their day without a care in the world because they always seemed oblivious to the wanton destruction around them anyway. That said, the citizens noticed that there was a distinct lack of carnage this day, something that was actually pretty out of character for the city judging by recent events in the area.

Reasons for this was likely due to the fact that Los Santos’ resident psychopath, one Trevor Phillips, was currently in the process of getting his face blown off in Medici, but no one knew this at the time. They were just glad to have a bit of quiet day for once. It was probably the most-peaceful day that the city had seen in quite a bit largely due to Trevor’s mysterious absence.

Unfortunately for Los Santos, something would be soon coming in to more than make up for it.

High above the busy streets, a swirling portal opened up in the sky, looking like a circle of magic fire leading into a void of darkness. Out of the portal, hanging what looked like hundreds of feet in the air above the streets, tumbled two people in what looked like a wild airborne fistfight. The two figures tumbled over each other, trying to get in a hit or trying to turn their opponent over so that they would hit the ground first.

One of the figures was an attractive-looking man with white hair, dressed in a stylish red outfit and fingerless gloves. He had a look of rage in his eyes as he swung his fists at his opponent. The other was near-bald save for a wild-looking, orange-brown Mohawk, wearing a patchwork assortment of rags, including a red-and-blue jacket-like shirt and old-looking pants. The most-notable features about him were the long nail-like talons attached to his fingers and the crazed look in his eyes. It was looking like he was trying to stab the first man with his claws as opposed to simply punching him.

The two tumbled down from the sky in a ball of flying fists as they fell headlong towards the streets below. It looked like the two were to simply become splattered over the pavement or someone’s windshield when they finally hit the ground.

*WHAM!*

Somehow, that didn’t happen. The two, instead of getting killed instantly from the fall, simply bounced off the roof of a car, over the car behind it, and landed on the empty flatbed of the truck following the second car. The impact from the landing finally caused the two to break away from each other, the second figure flying off the flatbed and landing on the station wagon behind it, digging his claws into the roof to keep himself from falling off.

Ash Crimson, the man in red, was having a very bad day. He was a part of some kind of huge event in another dimension involving warriors from across universes, and he saw opportunity. One moment he was holding off a group of…Rather persistent people who sought to put an end to his plans, and the next a member of said people had jumped him and sent them both tumbling down into a portal that the event was running on, dumping the two into a random universe solely for the amusement of the audience watching the event. He knew that the universe displacement was only temporary but he still hated the thought of the audience laughing at his misfortunes.

“You!” Ash shouted at the other man, having to yell over to the roar of the engines of the cars around him. “Why do you people have to be so…Annoying?!”

Jack, the other man, had only joined the group of people seeking to end Ash’s plans because he was bored and thought kicking some teeth in sounded like a good way to have a bit of fun. To the rest of World Heroes, the universe he hailed from, Jack was a maniac both in and out of the ring, looking for thrills however they happened upon him. Apparently, that also included tackling people through a window and sending himself tumbling into an unknown universe with his unwilling opponent. Truth be told, Jack didn’t care much for Ash’s plans or stopping them. In all actuality, he tackled Ash and sent the two of them into the portal because he was bored of listening to Ash monologue.

Jack gave a carefree shrug, showing a pointy-toothed grin. “What can I say? I was bored.” He said.

“Do you have any idea how much I’ve been waiting for a chance like this?! To finally have all that within reach?!” Ash roared, looking like he was already losing himself to anger. “And then to have it stripped away?! By you?! YOU, of ALL people?!”

Jack gave a yawn. “Look, man. I didn’t tackle you into a portal so you could go into another monologue. I tackled you into a portal to make you STOP.” He pointed out. “Buuuut the opportunity to tear out your organs in another dimension seemed like a fun idea as well.”

Ash seethed as Jack nonchalantly sat down on the roof of the car he was on, using one of his long claws to clean his ear a bit. “I hate bothersome people. I hate them with my entire existence. All they do is get in your way, preventing you from accomplishing your goals…I’ve had several encounters with nothing but bothersome people since this stupid event STARTED!” He said, his voice progressively getting louder and more anger-filled. “But YOU! YOU are the WORST!!”

Jack winked and made finger-gun movements with his claws. “Heeeey, takes one to know one, huh?” He cackled. “You know it’s saying something when people prefer MY company over YOURS, doesn’t it?”

That was it for Ash. The white-haired man ignited his hand in green fire and waved it in front of his face. “Fight me! Fight me, you scum!” He snapped. “I’ve had it up to HERE with you people and I feel the need to erase you from existence!”

“There we go. Now I’ve gotten you in the fighting mood, haven’t you?” Jack said as he got into a standing position, still on the roof of the moving car. “Took a bit longer that I thought but, hey, now I’ve got you actually willing to fight me with everything.”

“You’re insane!” Ash shouted.

“You’re a hypocrite!” Jack shouted back.

Ash narrowed his eyes and got into a stance, the wind blowing his hair wildly. “I’m going to enjoy eradicating you…” He muttered darkly.

Jack cackled and got into a stance. “Ladies first?” He asked.

“You die screaming!”

IT’S THE CROSSOVER NO ONE ASKED FOR! SERIOUSLY!
FIGHT!

(60 Seconds)


Jack, baring his claws, leapt off the car he was sitting on and jumped onto the edge of the flatbed to officially start the fight. Jack leapt at Ash with a deranged look in his eyes, swinging his claws, but the white-haired man stepped back a few steps and swung his flame-cloaked fist, striking Jack in the face with a wave of green fire. As Jack staggered backwards, Ash pressed the attack, striking the clawed maniac with a few quick blows and a kick to the legs in an attempt to trip him up early.

Ash’s foot struck Jack’s leg, resulting in a shout of annoyance from the maniac. Jack swung a clawed hand wildly at Ash to get him to back off, but Ash quickly ducked to avoid the blow as Jack’s claw sliced through the tip of his hair, sending a few white hairs airborne. However, while Ash’s face was lower, Jack swung a knee upwards, striking Ash in the face and making the white-haired man stagger backwards himself, backing into the cabin of the flatbed truck.

Ash looked up just in time to see Jack lunging at him and preparing to impale him with his claws. Ash rolled to the side and cause Jack to plunge his claws into the truck’s cabin, right beside the head of the driver, who screamed and instinctively turned the steering wheel in an attempt to get away. This caused the flatbed that Ash and Jack were fighting on to swerve wildly on the highway, throwing off the balance of both fighters as Jack pulled his claws from the cabin.

Narrowing his eyes as the truck swerved around, Ash threw a few green fireballs at Jack, hoping that one would find a target. However, because the truck was swerving so wildly, Ash’s projectiles flew off to the side and missed Jack by a mile. Jack used the truck’s swerving to his advantage and leapt at Ash, flying between a couple of green fireballs as he rolled straight into his opponent and sent him flying clear off the back of the flatbed.

(50 Seconds)

Ash landed on the roof of a van, bouncing once but managing to keep himself from falling off. Ash climbed to his feet and, eyes narrowed, hurled several more fireballs at Jack, surprisingly finding it easier to aim at him now that he was a bit further away. Jack tried to avoid the fireballs but ended up taking one to the face, burning his face and singing his hair a bit. In spite of this, he grinned and leapt off the back of the flatbed to jump onto the roof of the van with Ash.

“You’re not the only one that can control fire!” Jack laughed as he took a swig from the flask hanging around his waist.

Jack pulled his hair out of his eyes and exhaled a stream of fire at Ash at close range, causing the white-haired man to scream as he recoiled in pain. However, the fire was gone as quick as it had come and Ash, despite looking extremely-mad, took the opportunity to strike while Jack was recovering from his own attack. Ash grabbed Jack by the front of his shirt, gave him a few hard punches to the face and hurled him over his shoulder, throwing him off the van the two were on.

The clawed maniac flew back-first into the side of a delivery truck, bounced off it and fell into the cargo space of a pickup truck. Seeing Jack on another vehicle, Ash threw a fireball at the back tire of the pickup truck, causing it to explode and send the pickup truck reeling out of control, eventually flying off the road altogether. Ash thought he had finished Jack off until he saw a shadowed figure leap out of the back of the truck just as it was leaving the road, Jack landing safely on the roof of a car and giving Ash a taunting wave.

Ash clenched his fists and started throwing fireballs again. This time, Jack was ready, swinging his claws in time to parry the projectiles and send them flying off his claws, deflecting them in all directions. After doing this for a few seconds, Jack crouched low and leapt off the car, leaping over two lanes of traffic to tackle Ash off the roof of the van, sending them both falling onto, as luck would have it, an all-new empty flatbed truck.

(40 Seconds)

Ash found himself pinned to the flatbed by Jack, but the white-haired man was quick to react, pulling a foot back and striking the clawed maniac in the face with enough force to kick him off him. Ash got to his feet and rushed at Jack, swinging his hands and throwing multiple waves of green fire at Jack at close range. Jack, in the meantime, backed away from Ash’s assault of fire and quickly found himself at the edge of the flatbed with nowhere else to go.

Thinking quickly, Jack leapt off the truck, using his claws to latch onto the metal frame of the flatbed to keep himself from falling onto the road. Using momentum, Jack swung himself around and flung himself into the air behind Ash, landing safely behind the red-clad man. Before Ash had time to register what had just happened, Jack, had grabbed him by the back of the head and threw him ahead, causing Ash to land face-first onto the flatbed the two were currently fighting on.

Pushing himself to his feet, Ash spun around and saw Jack’s claws lunging at him. Ash barely had time to react before Jack slashed him several times, stunning him long enough for Jack to leap into the air and, throw himself into Ash’s chest, spinning like a cannonball. Once he landed on his feet, Jack finished the combo by swinging his knee upwards, revealing that there was a hidden blade attached to his pant leg and slashing Ash one more time for good measure. Ash staggered backwards, but lashed out with a fist in a blind swing.

Ash managed to get lucky, because his fist managed to deck Jack in the chin, knocking him back a couple of feet. Seeing a chance to strike back, Ash ignited his fists in green flame and lashed out them both, striking the maniac with a flurry of powered-up, flaming punches. One final uppercut was enough to send Jack launching backwards and land back-first onto the back end of the flatbed. Jack looked up and saw Ash towering over him with a hand ignited in green fire.

(30 Seconds)

Jack flashed a grin and rolled backwards, rolling into a standing position and catapauting himself off the back end of the flatbed, soaring high into the air and managing to land on the huge truck following the empty flatbed. Ash looked up at Jack, who was perched atop the cabin of the truck, and narrowed his eyes before throwing another few fireballs at him. Seeing Jack easily dodge them, Ash growled and leapt up after Jack, grabbing hold of the front of the huge truck before climbing up.

Jack jumped backwards onto the huge container the truck was carrying as Ash climbed up, knowing that Ash would take another swing at him the instant he got the chance. Seeing Jack jump backwards, Ash threw another fireball the instant he had climbed to his feet, managing to get lucky again and striking Jack in the chest. Seeing Jack stunned, Ash ran at him and tackled him to the ground, which in this case was the top of the container the huge truck they were on was carrying.

On top of Jack, Ash, threw several punches into the maniac’s face while he was down, not bothering to give him a chance to react. After several punches, Ash stood up, hauled Jack to his feet and hurled him into the top of the container with all his might. Ash tried searing Jack with a close-up blast of fire, but Jack managed to snap to attention and, using his agility to his advantage, slid underneath Ash’s legs just as the red-clad man fired a green wave of flames into the truck.

While Ash was distracted, Jack kicked him in the back, knocking him flat on his face. Jack slashed Ash several times from behind as the white-haired man struggled to get up, grabbed him from behind and then suplexed him into the truck’s container, causing Ash to bounce back several more feet and land face-down on the truck. Ash pushed himself up as Jack swung a clawed hand at his face again and quickly grabbed Jack by the arm before the madman had a chance to touch his face.

(20 Seconds)

Using all his remaining strength, Ash threw Jack over his shoulder and threw him to the next vehicle over, a tanker truck. Ash leapt after Jack, grabbed the side of the truck and climbed up to continue the fight, seeing that Jack was still in the process of getting up, and kicked him before Jack had the chance to get up completely. While Jack was down again, Ash punched at him, only for Jack to roll to the side and cause Ash to strike the tanker with his fist.

As Ash cursed in pain, Jack had gotten up and slashed with his claws several times, striking Ash with another lightning-fast combo of blades that kept the white-haired man at bay for several seconds, Jack not giving him an inch to retaliate. However, Jack suddenly saw that there was a green flame starting to form on Ash’s hand as he was attacking the red-clad man, meaning that Ash was readying a counter, something Jack quickly jumped back from, breaking away from his own combo.

Ash swung his hand, sending a wave of green fire in front of his face, hoping that Jack was close enough to attack. However, he saw that Jack was far enough away to avoid the attack altogether, and was actually leaping at him with his claws bared. Ash backpedaled as Jack landed on the top of the tanker, plunging his claws into the tanker itself instead of Ash. Ash took the chance to kick Jack in the face while he was distracted, making him pull his claws out of the tanker.

Jack was quick to jump to his feet, however, and looked ready to continue the fight. However, he suddenly sniffed the air and glanced down to the holes in the tanker he had just made, suddenly realizing that the two were fighting on top of an oil tanker, though Ash didn’t seem to realize it as he was pulling his hand back and preparing to swing another wave of flames at Jack. “Wait!” Jack called out.

Ash lashed out with flames.

*KA-BOOM!*

(10 Seconds)


The entire tanker truck exploded into a ball of fire, propelling both Ash and Jack back onto the container of the huge truck they were fighting on before the former had thrown the latter to the tanker truck. Both fighters bounced off the truck a couple times before managing to grab hold and keep themselves from sliding off, getting back up to continue the fight. Ash was quick to act first, throwing a fireball at Jack, only for the maniac to deflect it to the side as he rushed headfirst at Ash.

Ash held up his arms as Jack repeated another onslaught of rapid-fire slashes. Ash grit his teeth through the pain as he felt himself getting pushed backwards towards the front of the truck. He could tell that Jack was trying to force him off the front of the truck, so Ash quickly lashed out with a knee to Jack’s face when he saw an opening, knowing he wouldn’t get many more chances. Jack recoiled, and then received another blow to the face that knocked him backwards, landing in a kneeling position.

(5…)

Jack, on one knee, grunted in annoyance as he looked at Ash.

(4…)

Jack’s eyes suddenly widened. Ash faltered a bit, wondering what Jack was doing.

(3…)

Crouching low, Jack leapt high into the air, out of sight.

(2…)

Ash was left on the roof of the truck, wondering what had gotten Jack to voluntarily leap off the truck like that. He turned around.

(1…)

…And saw that the truck he was currently on was driving straight towards a low-hanging, concrete bridge.

*WHAM!*

KO!


The truck went under the bridge easily, but Ash slammed face-first into the side of the concrete bridge because he was standing up. Ash stayed stuck to the side of the bridge for a few seconds, unmoving, before slowly peeling away from it and falling headlong into oncoming traffic.

In the meantime, Jack had managed to snag the side of the bridge himself by digging his claw into it, hanging by the bridge safely as he watched Ash fall into the path of an oncoming truck. “Heh. What a complete maroon.” Jack said to himself as he used his claws to scale the side of the bridge before reaching the top.

Reaching the top of the bridge, Jack leapt over the railing and onto a pedestrian sidewalk on the other side, safe from the bridge’s own rush hour traffic. Seeing that he was safe from traffic now, Jack turned around and leaned against the railing to gaze out at the traffic heading towards the bridge he had just scaled.

“Car…Car…Truck…Car…Van…Car…Truck…” Jack said casually as a civilian approached him.

“What’re you doing, man?” The male citizen of Los Santos asked.

“Eh, I’m just playing a little game I made up.” Jack shrugged. “It’s called ‘Say What You See…Run Over the Hapless Sap in the Highway’.”

The citizen gazed over the side of the railing as his eyes widened. He quietly backed away with a horrified expression before turning around and running away, wisely choosing to leave Jack to his devices.

“…Van…Truck…Car…Car…Semi-Truck…Van…Car…Bus…Car…”

This melee’s winner is…

JACK
OMM S2 BONUS: Ash Crimson vs. Jack
One Minute Melee

No, there isn't really much in common these two have, but when it comes to Bonus Battles sometimes they don't really need to. I'd recently wanted to take my favrouite battle from my Megamix Tournament days and give it an update, although with the same results. World Heroes may be an obscure game series but it doesn't stop the fact that I just freaking hate Ash Crimson.

Hint for next battle: When you're as funky as these two are, you learn to live by your own beat...

GO!

(Island of Medici)


Medici was a simple island, yet developed enough to have large cities and power plants scattered throughout the island. Up until very-recently, there had been…A lot of explosions on the island, and the citizens were sometimes worried about getting caught in the crossfire when a building or a bridge or a highly-explosive power plant blew up, but thankfully things seem to have died down after the tyrannical government had recently been overthrown…With extreme prejudice.

Rico Rodriguez sat back in a beach chair, looking out at the sea as the sun was starting to set over the horizon. He honestly couldn’t remember the last time he took the time to enjoy the sunset, as most of his time until recently was made up of him blowing something up in an effort to free his home island of Medici from the iron grip of Di Ravello, the mad dictator that had been controlling the entire island for years. Rico had, only a few weeks ago, managed to overthrow the mad dictator and finally end his reign of terror. Liberating his home was something that Rico had wanted to do for a long time, and he jumped at the chance to do so when the opportunity arose after he had gained the combat experience needed to pull off half the crazy stunts he was required to pull off.

Still, after the dust settled, Rico was glad to have a bit of downtime. After the whole “deposing of the tyrannical dictator” thing, Rico felt that he was entitled to a bit of a vacation before heading off on another adventure of rebellion. He figured he may as well enjoy the downtime while he could, after all.

“Hey, Rico!” A cheerful voice called out.

Rico turned his head and saw his cousin, a semi-scrawny man named Mario, coming over with a couple of beer bottles. “You thirsty, cousin? I got some cold ones!” He said.

Rico gave a smirk. “Of course, Mario. You know me too well.” He chuckled.

Mario stopped about twenty feet away from Rico and held out one of the beers, almost expectantly. Rico lifted an eyebrow for a moment but gave a chuckle and held out a wrist, activating the mechanism attached to it and firing a cable out of it. With pinpoint accuracy, the cable struck the bottle in Mario’s hand, pulling it out of Mario’s grip and yanking it into Rico’s open palm.

Mario laughed as he continued walking towards his cousin. “I never get tired of seeing you do that, Rico!” He laughed.

“You know this technology isn’t meant for parlour tricks, Mario.” Rico playfully scolded.

“Eh, maybe. But you know how much I LOVE parlour tricks.” Mario joked back. “You think I can borrow that for my next party?”

Rico couldn’t help but give another laugh as the two of them clinked the necks of their bottles together. “The thought of you using the cable terrifies me far more than anything Di Ravello threw at me, Mario.” He said.

“Aw, you worry I’ll hurt myself?” Mario teased.

“Of course not. I’m just worried that you’ll bring a building down on someone innocent.”

The two cousins laughed as they poked fun at each other a few more times. Rico and Mario turned back to the sunset and watched the quiet scene for a few moments, enjoying the downtime as the only thing they could hear was the sounds of waves hitting the rocks of the islands instead of the explosions and bombshells.

…And then the familiar sound of a helicopter rotor.

Rico and Mario looked up and shielded their eyes as they watched a helicopter come into view from the direction of the sun, seemingly making its way towards them in a straight line. “Um…Mario, is that one of ours?” Rico asked as he stood up and eyed the helicopter suspiciously.

“No, Rico. We didn’t have any soldiers on patrol today. Not by helicopter, anyway.” Mario shook his head.

Rico narrowed his eyes as he watched the helicopter come in closer to the island, flying over the two cousins before coming to a fairly rough-looking landing just down the beach. The cousins watched cautiously as a figure got out of the helicopter and angrily set foot on the beach, revealing a rather dirty, unkempt man with balding hair. He held a baseball bat in one hand and Rico noticed an automatic rifle strapped to his back.

“Where’s Di Ravello?!” The man shouted as he stormed over. “I have a few words I want to say to him!”

Rico lifted an eyebrow and couldn’t help but chuckle. “My friend, you’re a bit late if you have a quarrel with Di Ravello. He’s long dead.” He said.

The man’s eye noticeably twitched. “Dead, you say?” He asked before muttering a few select curse words. “That weasel skimped out on his last payment and now I can’t even collect?!”

Rico’s face faltered. “Wait. Payment? What are you talking about?” He asked.

The man rotated his neck a few times. “Trevor Phillips. I’ve been shipping that Di Ravello shmuck millions of dollars worth of guns, ammo and planes over the last few years.” He said. “He’d been late in his payments lately and I’m not exactly going to let a four hundred-thousand dollar bill go unpaid!”

Trevor Phillips was a man of…Complicated priorities. He was never one to ask questions about where his supplies were going or what his clients did with them so long as he got paid for it. Trevor was always someone who people knew never to cross because he was already pretty unhinged, but Di Ravello was someone who thought of everyone who dealt with him as a pawn in a large game of chess, or a loose end that needed to be stomped out before it was used against him. The dictator had probably assumed that if he purposefully delayed paying Trevor, probably making sure to shortchange him a few times, thinking that he could assert authority over Trevor to make sure the gunrunner knew who was calling the shots.

Trevor, being Trevor, would obviously find out he’d been had and, rather than be forced into servitude like Di Ravello had been anticipating, Trevor had secretly been planning a warpath of his own to kill Di Ravello as painfully as possible, or at least beat him to the point of death to make sure that the dictator knew never to cross someone as dangerous as him and hold off on killing him until Trevor received his payment. As it turned out, Trevor was a little late regardless.

“You…You’ve been supplying that dictator with all the munitions he’d gotten?!” Mario asked incredulously. “Did…Did you not know what he’d been doing with them?!”

Trevor rolled his eyes. “Of course I did! You think I cared at the time? He paid way better than anyone else I’d been supplying!” He admitted. “He was a huge prick, but hey, he always paid. Until recently, that is. But now that he’s dead I can’t even collect! At least tell me where my shipments are so I can take them back, will you?!”

A shadow fell over Rico’s face. “Destroyed. I made sure I blew up everything Di Ravello used to oppress my home here.” He said. “I put the bullet in Di Ravello’s skull myself.”

Trevor narrowed his eyes and muttered a few more choice words. “So you’re the one that did it, huh? Well, I guess that leaves us with some complications, does it?” He sneered. “If you’re the reason I can’t collect from Di Ravello, I’m going to have to collect from YOU instead!”

“You’re the reason Di Ravello had the firepower he needed keep his control over Medici for as long as he did.” Rico said, stepping forward. “We have YOU to thank for the countless deaths in the rebellion and the many civilian casualties…”

“Look, I don’t have time for this. I was hoping that I could get you to fork over what I’m owed peacefully, but I don’t think that’s happening.” Trevor said.

“No. You won’t get a cent from us.” Rico said darkly. “You’ve already taken so much from us.”

Trevor scoffed. “You’re blaming ME for the sorry state of this island? He was already in power before I started supplying him!” He said. “All I want is what I’m owed!”

*POW!*

Trevor was sent tumbling backwards several feet, cursing a few more times for good measure, as Rico lowered his fist. “That is what you are ‘owed’, friend.” Rico said, eyes narrowed, as a burning rage coursed through his body. “You deserve FAR worse than that.”

“Rico!”

Rico turned to look at Mario, who looked surprisingly-serious and was without the smile he was usually seen with. “Give him one for me.” He said before narrowing his eyes in hatred at Trevor. “…And another for Dimah.”

“…Gladly, Mario.”

Trevor pushed himself to his feet, rubbed the blood off his jaw with his arm and narrowed his own eyes. “So you want to rumble, huh?! Fine! One way or another, I’m gonna make you pay up!” He roared as he held his bat with both hands and got into a stance.

“You brought this on yourself, you demon.” Rico snarled as he too got into a stance.

BRING OUT THE EXPLOSIVES, MICHAEL BAY!
FIGHT!

(60 Seconds)


Rico acted first, instantly firing a cable from his wrist mechanism. The cable shot through the air and attached itself to the unprepared Trevor’s chest. Rico pulled the cable back with all his might, yanking Trevor off his feet and pulling him towards his opponent. Once Trevor got close enough, Rico pulled a fist back and delivered an uppercut, knocking the psychopath into the air. Rico then leapt after him and delivered a flurry of airborne kicks to keep Trevor from attacking back while in midair.

Finishing off with a double-kick in midair, Rico sent Trevor face-first into the ground and landed on his feet a few feet away. Rico grabbed Trevor by the head and hauled him up, swinging a fist towards his stomach, but Trevor snapped to attention, swinging his bat and knocking Rico’s fist aside and making Rico let go of his head. Trevor quickly retaliated with a headbutt, knocking Rico back a couple of steps, and then swung his bat into the younger man’s stomach. Trevor pulled his bat into the air and swung down.

Grunting in annoyance, Rico held up his hands and caught Trevor’s bat, kicking him back while he was blocking Trevor’s attack and firing another cable into the older man’s chest, this time pulling himself closer to Trevor and delivering a flurry of punches when he got close enough. Trevor got his head knocked around a few times, but still managed to keep his composure enough to catch Rico’s fist and, seeing an opening, deliver a counter-blow to Rico’s face.

Now Trevor was on the offensive, delivering several furious blows to knock Rico around a bit. After a few blows, Trevor pulled his bat into view and angrily struck Rico with it several times, using the younger man as something to take out his various aggressions out on. Trevor hit Rico several times, not giving Rico a chance to counter or recover, and finally struck him enough times to cause Rico to collapse onto one knee. Trevor smirked and pulled his bat back, preparing to knock Rico’s head clean off.

(50 Seconds)

Rico sprung to life, rolling to the side as Trevor’s bat swung at nothing but air, causing Trevor to lose his balance slightly due to hitting nothing. Rico promptly fired another cable into Trevor’s back and, with all his might, yanked Trevor off his feet and slammed him into the sand in what looked like a cable-connected suplex. Rico followed this up by pulling again, lifting Trevor up and slamming him into the ground on Rico’s other side. Rico finally used the cable to start spinning in place, spinning Trevor like a ball-and-chain.

Releasing the cable, Rico sent Trevor flying back-first into the side of his own helicopter, which was parked at least thirty feet away from where the two were fighting. Trevor, now furious at his opponent and thinking of even-more ways to disembowel him, pushed himself to his feet and, back to the copter, pulled out his machine gun and started opening fire on Rico, firing a spread of bullets at the younger man.

Mario quickly out of dodge as Rico rolled to the side so that the bullets missed their target. Rico darted to the side as Trevor followed him, trying to catch up with the speedy man with the bullets but found that Rico was going too fast.

“COME ON! JUST DIE ALREADY!!” Trevor roared as he suddenly saw that the machine gun in his hands wasn’t shooting anything anymore, making him realize that he had spent the entire clip of ammo and didn’t even shoot Rico ONCE.

The instant he saw Trevor reach to swap his ammo clip for a new one, he made a beeline straight for the psychopath. Trevor slammed a new ammo clip into the end of his rifle but the instant he looked up he received a running punch to the face, making him fly backwards several feet. Rico quickly shot another cable into the airborne Trevor’s leg and, with another hard yank, pulled him straight into the beach’s sand, burying Trevor headfirst in the sand.

(40 Seconds)

With Trevor stuck in the sand, Rico approached him, cracking his knuckles and preparing to haul his opponent up to continue the fight, but the instant Rico got close, Trevor pushed himself out of the sand feet-first, launching himself into the surprised Rico feet-first in a double-kick. Rico took the blow to the chest as he was knocked flat on his back in surprise, as Trevor shook the sand out of the little hair he had left, walking over to his downed form and standing over him with a smirk.

Pulling a foot into the air, Trevor began repeatedly stomping down on Rico’s torso, each time harder and with more anger-fueled force. It was clear that fighting Rico was beginning to put a strain on his already-loose sanity and Trevor was becoming more and more-deranged as the fight went on. Trevor pulled a foot into the air and prepared to stomp down on Rico’s chest with all his might, but Rico managed to catch his foot and, twisting it, forced Trevor off his remaining foot and causing him to land on his face. Rico quickly got up, his chest burning, and hauled Trevor to his feet to deliver some more punches to the face.

Grabbing Trevor by the shirt, Rico turned and hurled him over his shoulder with enough force that Trevor bounced off the ground slightly. Trevor rolled to the side as Rico slammed a foot down on the ground himself, where Trevor himself had just been, and got to his feet, but not before kicking Rico in the shin with enough force to cause the younger man to bend over and curse under his breath. Trevor, suddenly realizing he was still holding onto his machine gun, struck Rico across the face with it a couple times.

The next thing Rico knew, Trevor had pressed the barrel of his gun against his temple and grinning maniacally. “Let’s see you dodge THIS one!” He snarled as he pulled the trigger.

However, he hadn’t counted on Rico swinging an arm up and knocking the rifle away from his head as Trevor pulled the trigger, sending a few shots flying wild and striking the side of Trevor’s helicopter. Trevor grunted as he quickly regained his composure and struck Rico with the gun again, making him stagger backwards a bit.

(30 Seconds)

Taking advantage of Rico’s disorientation, Trevor leapt at his opponent, grabbed him by the shirt and spun around, throwing him against the front of the helicopter. Trevor proceeded to grab Rico at close range and punched him several more times to keep the younger man from regaining his senses. Trevor assaulted Rico’s face with punches and headbutts for several seconds, refusing to give his opponent an inch because he saw what he could do with the cable mechanism if given the chance.

A light went on in Trevor’s head as he quickly grabbed at Rico’s wrist mechanism in an attempt to pry it off and turn it against him. However, in doing so, and finding that the mechanism refused to come off, Trevor had taken his attention off of Rico and this gave the younger man the time he needed to regain his senses. Rico, seeing what Trevor was trying to do, punched Trevor at close range and knocked the psychopath away from him. As Trevor staggered back, Rico charged him, tackling him to the ground.

On top of Trevor, Rico punched him several times, but it seemed like it was doing little to actually faze the madman. Perhaps it was the anger clouding his vision and numbing the pain, but Rico didn’t have the time to dwell on it. Rico stood up, shot a cable into Trevor’s chest and hurled him into the air, letting him fall down on his own. Once Trevor got close enough, Rico jumped into the air and drop-kicked the madman, sending Trevor flying back so hard that he crashed through the front window of his own helicopter, landing perfectly in the driver’s seat.

Rico quickly looked at his wrist mechanism and started fiddling with it to make sure Trevor didn’t actually do any damage to it. Satisfied that it was still functioning, Rico looked up to continue the fight, only to freeze. Rico’s mouth fell open as he looked up at the helicopter that was now flying in the air and baring down at him, twin gattling guns aimed directly at him.

And a severely-ticked-off looking Trevor Phillips at the helm.

(20 Seconds)

“DIE, ALREADY!!”
Trevor screamed as he fired the twin gattling guns and made a run at Rico in his helicopter, his eyes flaring up in deranged, anger-fueled insanity.

Rico quickly turned around and started running down the beach as the bullets Trevor was raining down on him from above struck the sand on either side, making it look like a scene out of an action movie. Rico noticed that the bullet line was starting to move to the left, so he rolled to the side and allowed the bullets to move with him, keeping himself untouched as he continued to run down the beach.

Rico glanced upwards at Trevor’s helicopter and appeared to be eyeing up the angle and distance it was from him. Suddenly, Trevor spun around as he ran and fired a cable up to the helicopter, latching onto it with excellent accuracy. Rico reeled in the line, pulling himself up to the helicopter in a matter of seconds as Trevor continued to try and shoot him from the helicopter’s guns that were now no longer lined up with Rico.

Suddenly, the instant Rico latched onto the helicopter, he swung himself into the cockpit and landed a flying kick to Trevor’s face as he was coming in. Trevor swore violently as he lashed out at Rico again, letting go of the helicopter’s controls as he did. He grabbed Rico’s head and struck it against the helicopter’s dashboard a couple of times before quickly grabbing the controls of the helicopter again when he saw that it was starting to spin out of control. Rico recovered from the attack and punched at Trevor a few times in retaliation.

Trevor caught Rico’s fist with one hand, using the other hand to keep control of the helicopter, and shoved Rico backwards, trying to knock him out of the helicopter entirely. Trevor managed to keep his balance and prevented himself from getting pushed out.

“How many times do I have to KILL YOU?!” Trevor screamed.

(10 Seconds)

Mario watched from the beach as the helicopter started spinning out of control again, showing that Trevor had let go of the controls. In the cockpit, the enraged man had jumped onto Rico and wrapped both hands around his neck with a psychotic look in his eyes. Rico grunted in annoyance as he bent his leg in and kicked Trevor off of him, nearly knocking Trevor out of the helicopter himself.

Trevor grabbed hold of the controls again and gave them a hard turn, turning the entire helicopter on its side in an attempt to drop Rico out of it completely. Rico tried to keep himself in the helicopter, but fell out instead as Trevor quickly realigned the helicopter again. Rico, on the other hand, lashed out another cable in midair, snagging the bottom of the helicopter and reeling himself up to it again in midair. As Trevor felt the impact of Rico attaching himself to the bottom of the helicopter, Rico pulled something from his pocket.

(5…)

Rico stuck the object in his hand to the bottom of Trevor’s helicopter.

(4…)

Trevor looked around frantically in the cockpit, wondering what Rico was doing.

(3…)

Rico detached himself from the helicopter and started falling back to Earth.

(2…)

Trevor looked out the broken window and saw Rico falling, giving him a taunting salute.

(1…)

Trevor suddenly saw the detonator in Rico’s other hand…

…Which Rico pressed.

*KA-BOOM!*

KO!


Before Trevor even had the chance to curse Rico’s existence or fire off a final swearword, his cockpit exploded around him, igniting the entire helicopter in a ball of fire. Debris from the explosion shot in all directions, and it was clear that Trevor wasn’t getting up from this one.

His job done, Rico turned around in midair and activated his wingsuit, gliding down to the ground safely and landing on his feet. Mario saw him land and came running over, laughing and cheering.

“Rico! That was awesome! Oh, I never tire of seeing that already, but seeing you pull it off that spectacularly made it even better somehow!” Mario cheered.

“Mario, stay back!” Rico ordered as he ran towards his cousin, and Mario suddenly remembered that the helicopter still had debris raining down from above.

As Rico ran off the beach, pieces of Trevor’s helicopter hit the sand around the cousins and the helicopter’s blade ended up embedding it in the sand just down the beach. Once everything had finished raining down on the sand, Rico looked around at the beach and gave a sigh.

“I was hoping there would be no more cleaning up to do after Di Ravello.” Rico lamented. “Our favourite beach on the island and it gets…Completely torn apart like this.”

“Rico, it can be fixed. Don’t worry.” Mario assured. “Besides, what you did…Do you not think you did what needed to be done?”

Rico folded his arms and lifted an eyebrow. “Of course. It was clear Di Ravello wasn’t the only dangerous man he was helping.” He reasoned.

Mario grinned. “Then why do you sound so mopey, eh?” He asked. “Cleaning up the beach. It’ll take…What, a couple hours tops if we get a few of the rebels to help out? Come on, you just destroyed another of Di Ravello’s cohorts, and he was completely unrepentant in it, too!”

Rico couldn’t help but give a light smirk. “Yes, I suppose I did.” He said.

“And did it feel good?”

Rico’s grin got noticeably bigger. “Oooh, yes. It felt GOOD.” He said.

“That’s all I wanted to hear, Rico! Now come on. Let me just get on the phone and I’ll let the cleanup crew know that there’s an extra helicopter wreckage they can take apart for scrap, eh?”

Rico gave a nod and followed Mario off the beach as Mario reached into his pocket for his cell phone to start the cleanup of the area. However, as Rico was walking away, he didn’t notice that he was being watched. Far away, across the island and hiding on top of a cliff, was a man peering through a set of high-tech binoculars: A man with dreadlocks and a noticeable, very-large, robotic arm.

“Hmm…He definitely looks like the dangerous type…” The dreadlocked man muttered to himself. “He took down a fully-armed helicopter by himself using nothing but his fists and a cable…”

The man paused for a moment. “…No, I don’t see an immediate threat.” He continued, showing that he had an earpiece and was talking into it. “…I understand. I’ll continue to monitor him…”

With that, the man turned off his communication and continued to watch. “You’re an interesting man, Rico Rodriguez…” He muttered.

This melee’s winner is…

RICO RODRIGUEZ
OMM S2: Rico Rodriguez vs. Trevor Phillips
One Minute Melee.

...Did I write this matchup just to have an excuse to blow up Trevor Phillips?...Yes.
...Am I hinting at a future battle between Rico and Spencer from Bionic Commando?...Maybe.

*bzzt* *bzzt*

WARNING. WARNING.
BONUS BATTLE INBOUND.
NEW CHALLENGERS INCOMING.
Loading...
So I auditioned a character into the latest OC contest over at the Ask Frisk and Company blog. See if you can guess which one in the batch is mine. ;)
askfriskandcompany.tumblr.com/…
  • Listening to: Nintendo music
  • Watching: Nintendo Direct
  • Playing: Death Road to Canada
Okay. A bit late to this one because I had work today, but now it's time for what will most-likely be the last Smash Direct before the game launches. I've heard rumours and "leaks" and stuff like that, but I'm one who never believes anything I hear until it's revealed by the company themselves. At least that way I won't be let down when certain "leaks" turn out to be false, anyway. Okay, then. Let's get this going. :)

Ken Echo Fighter
A lot of people were saying this would be a sure thing and, while I know it was probably easy to make an Echo Fighter of Ryu there's no real question that they're...Pretty much the exact same character. Part of me still wonders why not just have Ken as a couple alternate outfits for Ryu. That said, I'm surprised that they gave Ken a CGI intro because all the other Echos except Richter weren't given special trailers...

Okay, so Ken has two Final Smashes like Ryu, but one of them is different. That's interesting...

...Oh, wait. This is going to be a big reveal trailer for a couple characters. Okay, then.

Incineroar Newcomer
And here's our current generation Pokémon rep. A lot of people were expecting it to be Incineroar, especially after Mimikyu was confirmed as a Pokeball Pokémon. I guess he counts as a bit of a grappler fighter, which I guess the series has been lacking, and from the looks of things he's definitely a more-physical fighter than a few of the other Pokémon characters...

Last new challenger, though? So would that be all the characters or do we still have an Echo or two to be revealed. The direct IS 40 minutes, after all...Nope, looks like Incineroar was the last one.

Fighter Roster
The starting roster is only the original eight fighters from the N64 game. That means there's a LOT to unlock and it'll be fun to do so. :)

Amiibo
The new Amiibos look awesome, though the Inkling's Amiibo seems to bear a very close resemblance to her Splatoon one. I'd probably skip on that one because of that, but everyone else's looks amazing.

Spirits
So these Spirits are what we'll be collecting instead of Trophies? The idea's neat but I'll definitely miss collecting the trophies. It was always fun to collect a new trophy and add to the collection. Kind of looks like the Spirits are sort of taking the place of Stickers or Power-Ups. All in all it looks like an interesting new mode but I know a lot of people were sort of expecting a new story mode and I feel they'll be disappointed with it.

Online Stuff
Honestly it looks like a lot of the online stuff is similar to what it was in Wii U. That said, the addition of the "Elite" rankings like in Splatoon 2 is interesting. I doubt I'd get good enough to make it to that point because it'd probably involve a LOT of EXP grinding for your levels.

Voice chat's a thing as well, but honestly I never really use it. I didn't use it with Splatoon and I probably won't here, either.

Assist Trophies
Shadow - Yeah, I figured he wouldn't be an Echo. His moveset differs enough from Sonic, anyway.
Takamaru - Good to see him back again but I still wish Nintendo would try to resurrect his franchise.
Starman - This guy was kind of an annoying Assist Trophy before. At least now that we can fight some of them in return maybe we can return the favour.
Nightmare - I guess there's always got to be a few Assists that screw over everyone.
Pong - Yeah, this returning one's not a surprise. I actually kind of thought it was a funny Assist.
Yuri from Fatal Frame - I definitely didn't see this one coming, especially since Fatal Frame is...Kind of a dormant franchise right now...
Isaac - Looks like the leak was wrong. No playable Isaac this time around.
Black Knight - Cool-looking character and I know he was a popular Fire Emblem request.
Thwomp - Oh, that actually looks hilarious. :) Plus, I doubt this is one you can fight back against.
Spring Man - I'm glad he's here but I had a feeling Arms was too new an IP to show up as a playable character since Smash had probably been in development for quite a while now.
Dr. Wily - Always glad to see some more classic Megaman representation here, and seeing Wily in his boss capsule in always fun to see. :)
Mario Paint Flyswatter - I honestly didn't see this coming but it makes total sense because I know everyone loved that minigame and it keeps showing up in other games these days. :)
Tiki - I'll be honest. Because I never played Fire Emblem I don't really know who she is, but I know the fans of the series will probably really like seeing her here.
Vince - Art Academy? Wow. That's a bit of an unusual choice, especially since we already have Nikki here.
Guile - The Street Fighter Assist. Always good to see him show up. I always liked playing as him in the old games.
Akira - Virtual Fighter representation is always nice, but I'm surprised that they went for the polygonal design of the original games. Maybe it was to keep him from looking like Ryu...

Century Smash
I guess this is just the Multi-Man Melee with a new name? Kind of looks like it...

Challenges
I like the new layout for sure. I always had fun with the challenges and the rewards that I got for beating them.

Mii Customization
I'm glad that there's still the custom movesets and clothing here for the Mii characters. That was one of the reasons for creating Mii characters in the first place for a lot of people.

DLC
I knew this was coming, and now it looks like they're planning on releasing at least a few more fighters as DLC. Plus they'll all be newcomers since every previous character is already returning here. :)

Piranha Plant Newcomer?
Wait, this is really a thing? Wow, I definitely didn't see this coming. But Sakurai said that it was only a limited-time offer if you purchased the game "now". I've already pre-ordered the game, so I wonder if that means I get it too...Okay, it's just something you need to register the game on your MyNintendo account for. This is definitely interesting and a Free DLC character is always welcome, no matter how ridiculous it may be. :)

Adventure Mode
Okay, it looks like there's a new adventure mode after all. That's good. It looks like it'll be fun, at least. I wonder how long it is, though...

All in all it looks like the new Smash is getting built up to be something real fun and something I'll likely put a lot of time into playing when it releases. I hope that the game's going to live up to all the hype but from the looks of things it's definitely not going to disappoint. :)

Well, well, well. Who says that you can't have Character Development in fighting games? www.youtube.com/watch?time_con…

I guess I'm more-surprised that they canonized his last name as "Travers", his last name from the poorly-received "Streetwise" game.

That said, it's good to see Cody again and that he's getting some development. Still haven't played SF5, though.

Go right ahead. I've stepped away from Death Battle in favour of One Minute Melee, anyway. :)
