I would greatly appreciate comments on my works. It would help to know how you feel about them and even any suggestions to improve my style.

Especially on backgrounds. I could really go for background advice.

So somebody sent me this via note. I had low expectations of it, considering it's from 4chan, but when I saw it...hoo boy, I was SO disappointed in it.

--Newcomers: Ridley, Inkling, King K Rool, Ashley, Paper Mario, Karate Joe, Simon Belmont. Impa, Daisy, and Alph are clones. Yes, I know Alph has been "confirmed" as a costume. Its a lie, apparently.

--Returning Unconfirmed Stages: Rainbow Cruise, Delfino Plaza, Paper Mario, Big Battlefield

--New Stages: New Donk City, Diamond City, Gangplank Galleon, Airboarder, Melemele Island, Brain Age, Robotic Operating Buddy, Dracula's Castle, Biosphere, Temple of Mila. Yes, one of the stages you fight on top of a gigantic R.O.B. It's weird, I know.

--Stadium Mode: Multi-Man Smashes, Home Run Contest, Target Smahes - grouped by seres, some sort of bowling mini-game where you crash foes into bowling pins.

--Single Player Misc: Classic, Events, Master Orders, a story mode - not like SSE - more segregated - cool cutscenes tho.

So it looks like your typical Smash Bros. rumor, right? Well, there are a few things that REALLY throw it off.

(1: "Alph is an Echo Fighter")
This bit alone is going off wild what-if tangents, similar to the debate that Waluigi could be playable. Sure, it can be argued that Alph hasn't been seen doing much in the fighter video or in screenshots, but that's still making assumptions. I'll tell you this, though - the fact that he was seen ALONE in one scene of Olimar's fighter video seems to give more evidence that he's still a costume alt of Olimar.

(2: New stages for Pokémon and Fire Emblem)
That alone shouldn't be damning. What IS damning is that there's these stages, and no newcomer to fit them. Where's the Gen-7 Pokémon? Where's Alm or Celica? If you're going to claim that such stages are being added, at least add newcomers that go well with them if you're going to make it believable!

(3: Not a lot of variety in newcomers)
So the most shocking thing about these claimed newcomers is that they're mostly focused in the Mario group of franchises - Mario (Paper Mario), Donkey Kong (King K. Rool), WarioWare (Ashley)...And Rhythm Heaven (Karate Joe) is practically a cousin series to WarioWare. The only newcomer here that doesn't look so close to the Mario series is Impa! (and Alph, but I argued against the claims of him being an Echo) Let me tell you something: a little variety in your newcomers can make it more believable, even if it's just a small number.

(4: No recently-spotlighted characters)
This is a comparably minor point, but each Smash tends to have a few newcomers that come from games that released between games - or a version of the character as depicted between that time, like with Bowser Jr. in his Junior Clown Car (from New Super Mario Bros. Wii onward). The only one you have here that COULD fit that criteria is Paper Mario, but you probably don't have anything Color Splash-related for him in mind. Like I said, a minor point (as it likely doesn't apply to Ridley), but something to consider when picking out at least HALF of your newcomers.

In regards to the third and fourth points, if I went and claimed that the remaining Nintendo (non-Echo) newcomers were, say, Mimikyu (Pokémon Sun/Moon), Celica (Fire Emblem Echoes), Spring Man (ARMS), and Rex (Xenoblade Chronicles 2), there would be more variety and relevance there, thus making it a little more believable than what you've got here. And at least with this, there's the newcomers to justify having Melemele Island and the Temple of Mila as stages (so second point as well)!

Just some things to consider when you're making a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate rumor. If you're adding new stages, ESPECIALLY from already-included franchises, make sure there are characters that fit them. If you're making even four Nintendo newcomers, makes sure there's some more variety between them (and some relevancy with at least half). If you're going to claim that footage was lying, pay a LITTLE closer attention to every detail to make sure you won't look like some foolish ass.

IzaTrue, you made a valiant attempt, but you came up short.

(EDIT) On that note, mike1967-now , never ask me to showcase rumors ever again.
(EDIT 6-14) Adding more stages to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate based on backgrounds on the main site.
(EDIT 6-15) Added some more Poké Ball Pokémon, and re-sorted the stages by series groups.

- A hack-and-slash title with giant mechs. Not much has been said on it, but it sports a stylish cel-shaded look and intense metal music, making it look genuinely like an action-packed anime.
- It will launch sometime in 2019.

-= XENOBLADE CHRONICLES 2 =- DLC: Torna ~ The Golden Country
- The new story add-on through DLC has been officially revealed. This takes players back 500 years ago to the age of the Aegis War, where Addam and the newly-awakened Aegis Mythra set forth to do battle with the violent Aegis Malos.
- Many of Addam's allies, including Lora, Haze, Jin, Mikhail, Brighid, and someone named Hugo, are also joining this quest. It seems possible to switch the playable leader in this story, letting you use each allies' Arts manually.
- This will be available for download September 14.

- Mainly, new information was given on the Poké Ball Plus. Using this with the Let's Go games will unlock Mew.
- As a reminder, Let's Go and the Poké Ball Plus both launch November 16.

- This multiplayer party game takes on some new forms on the Switch.
- Up to four players can join the fun, as usual, and you can even use two Switches to play (with each of four players using a single Joy-Con). For certain minigames, you can line up the Switches to transform the battlefield in many ways.
- As usual, there are many playable characters - Mario, Luigi, Peach, Daisy, Rosalina, Wario, Waluigi, Bowser, Bowser Jr., Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Koopa Troopa, Dry Bones, Shy Guy, and for the first time, Goomba.
- The game launches October 5.

- The next in the series of strategy RPGs is coming!
- The usual system is in play, but there's even more that you can do in battle - including formations with many troops to plow through several enemies.
- It seems you can also select Magic or Combat Arts outside of the usual Attack.
- One of the playable characters featured heavily is Edelgard, an Aristocrat who uses swords and axes. Her dialogue throughout the trailer is directed to someone she calls "Teacher".
- It seems possible to roam around some places freely, almost like dungeon explorations in Echoes.
- A conversation with Edelgard is shown, in which you can decide what she should practice on (Sword Skills or Axe Skills, in this case).
- The game releases in spring 2019.

- The zany multiplayer first-person shooter is making a move onto Switch!
- It's currently free for download on Nintendo eShop today.

- The sequel to the fast-paced cooking competition is coming!
- New features are implemented. For instance, you can throw ingredients, allowing you to deliver them over small walls quickly.
- The kitchens that you compete in have more dynamic elements this time around.
- You can play this online, wirelessly, or locally with anyone.
- This will launch August 7.

- A 10-player strategy game that pits two teams of five against each other for insectoid dominance.
- There are three ways to win a match: kill the enemy queen three times, fill their hive with berries, or bring your snail there.
- All controls are done with a single joystick (Circle Pad) and one button, so it feels like an arcade brawler.
- It will launch sometime in 2018.

- The hand-drawn Metroivania-style indie hit is finally coming to the Switch!
- It's available on eShop today, as well as all DLC up to this day.

- An updated demo is available on the eShop. Your save data from this demo can be carried over to the full game.

- The starting roster will be fairly small, but you'll be able to unlock everybody quite efficiently.

-= Mario =-
- Still an easy-to-use all-arounder with moves like Fireball, Cape, Super Jump Punch, and F.L.U.D.D., but this time he's incorporated Cappy from Super Mario Odyssey into some visual bits.
- He has extra costumes this time - the Wedding Suit from Super Mario Odyssey, and the Builder Outfit from Super Mario Maker.
-= Link =-
- Primarily appears in his Champion's Tunic from Breath of the Wild, but also has costumes with his traditional-looking Tunic of the Wild.
- His Master Sword can unleash blade beams while his damage is at 0.0%.
- His standard special uses the Traveler's Bow, but it can fire two arrows at once now.
- His side special might be a normal Boomerang again.
- Down special is now Remote Bomb, which Link can detonate after throwing it.
- The new Final Smash is Ancient Arrow, which fires a single explosive arrow forth.
-= Ice Climbers =-
- The two-in-one fighter returns!
- As usual, you'll be strong with both Climbers, but if the partner's gone, the leader may be in trouble.
- The partner doesn't seem to do anything but stand by when the leader grabs a foe. The partner will also stop in a panic if the leader is grabbed in any way.
- When using Blizzard, both Climbers aim their attack forward, allowing for more concentrated damage and freezing.
- Their Iceberg for the Final Smash spins this time (while the leader flies around it via Condor), damaging and launching any foe that touches it.
-= Ike =-
- Ike's costumes have two variations - his Ranger appearance in Path of Radiance, and his Hero appearance in Radiant Dawn. In fact, his voice will differ between the two looks.
- Eruption now sends three pillars of fire forward.
-= Pikachu =-
- Some of Pikachu's costumes use a female Pikachu, with a heart-shaped tail tip. This includes the female player's hat from Sun/Moon, and Pikachu Libre.
- Its new Final Smash has it bound all over the stage with Volt Tackle.
-= Fox =-
- His appearance takes after Star Fox Zero.
- His new Final Smash is a cinematic attack with the full four Star Fox Team in their Arwings.
-= Falco =-
- His Final Smash is similar in cinematics, but its opening hit is different with an unorthodox flight pattern from his Arwing.
-= Ryu =-
- For 1-on-1 matches only, Ryu will always be facing toward his opponent when on the ground, Street Fighter-style.
-= Samus =-
- Her Charge Shot can charge even in midair. It can be canceled with a jump or a dodge, but it's a little risky.
-= Marth =-
- Dancing Blade is much faster, and easier to input. This applies to Roy and Lucina's side specials as well.
- For the first time, Marth has full English voice-acting. "Keep your eyes open!"
-= Snake =-
- His use of C4 seems a little different this time. Most notably, he's kneeling down while triggering it.
- Small note, but his series icon is now the infamous "!".
- His new Final Smash calls in missile support. Aim with the reticle, then fire!
-= King Dedede =-
- For his new Final Smash, he launches struck opponents into the stage of the Masked Dedede battle in Kirby Super Star Ultra. In this cinematic attack, he barrages the foe with missiles and his rocket hammer spin.
-= Pichu =-
- Pikachu's pre-evolution returns! As per usual, its stronger attacks tend to hurt itself a little, so be careful.
- Pichu also uses Volt Tackle for the Final Smash.
-= Zelda =-
- Her new look comes from Link Between Worlds.
- She seems to move much more quickly this time around.
- Phantom Slash now has the Phantom assemble itself behind Zelda, so it can protect her back.
- Her new Final Smash uses the Triforce of Wisdom to seal opponents and send them flying.
-= Sonic =-
- For his new Super Sonic Final Smash, he darts across the stage at light speed, tearing through anyone he strikes. It seems you can direct the area of his attack up and down, too.
-= PAC-MAN =-
- The new Super PAC-MAN Final Smash also has PAC-MAN zooming around the stage, except he loops to the other side of the stage while changing angles (a likely homage to a similar function in the classic PAC-MAN).
-= Pokémon Trainer (Squirtle, Ivysaur, Charizard) =-
- The three-form fighter, Pokémon Trainer, makes a return! There's no penalties like fatigue this time around, so you can have fun with whichever Pokémon you like for as long as you wish.
- Pokémon Change is a lot faster than back in Brawl, making for a good dodge trick.
- Certain palettes use the female Pokémon Trainer from Fire Red/Leaf Green instead.
- Pokémon Trainer's eye shape has been changed, best resembling Red's look in Pokémon Origins.
- Squirtle's dash now has it ride a small wave of water.
- If what Kirby's Ivysaur hat clip showed, its Bullet Seed will have a more diagonal upward angle.
- It's likely that Charizard is keeping Flare Blitz as its side special. What will happen to Rock Smash is unknown.
-= Cloud =-
- This time, you can see his Limit Gauge down on his HUD.
-= Robin =-
- Likewise, you can see the remaining uses of whatever weapon (Levin Sword or one of four tomes) Robin is currently holding on his/her HUD.
- Elwind's projectiles have better aiming this time.
-= Villager =-
- Villager's HUD displays whatever item or projectile they've Pocketed.
- In fact, Villager's normal grab (the bug net) can also Pocket items.
-= Bowser =-
- This time, his Giga Bowser Final Smash has him levitate behind the battlefield. Aim the reticle, and unleash a single devastating punch!
-= Mr. Game & Watch =-
- His appearance will change greatly whenever he uses certain moves, appearing as the characters from those Game & Watch titles.
- His Octopus Final Smash seems to be a sweeping grab that carries opponents across and off the stage.
-= Wolf =-
- His appearance is also based on Star Fox Zero. Many of his attacks have purple effects.
-= Kirby =-
- His Stone ability has gained an additional new look - an Ancient treasure chest from Breath of the Wild.
-= Shulk =-
- This time, when using Monado Arts, the five Arts can appear around Shulk in a ring. You can tilt toward the Art that you want right away. You can also use it while an Art is active to see how much time is remaining on it.
- Fiora joins his Chain Attack Final Smash this time.
-= Ganondorf =-
- He returns to his Ocarina of Time appearance. His Beast Ganon Final Smash even uses the Ganon from that title (don't worry, the function is still the same).
- His smash attacks all use his sword.
-= Mii Fighters =-
- Their proportions have been altered, making them look closer to the realistic-looking fighters. Their movesets overall have been greatly improved.
- You can give your Mii Fighters any of 12 different voice options.
- Hopefully, they'll be able to see full online play this time.
- It's likely that these are the only characters to still have custom special moves.
-= Pit =-
- His new Final Smash uses the Lightning Chariot. Aim the reticle and plow through with lightning power!
-= Zero Suit Samus =-
- She's mainly based on her appearance in Samus Returns, and has more visible musculature than before.
- For her new Final Smash, she hops aboard the Gunship in her Power Suit and fires a giant laser onto the stage guided by a reticle.
-= Olimar =-
- His helmet will be cracked whenever he suffers hitstun. Don't worry, it'll go back to normal afterward.
- All of his current Pikmin will join together to grab, pummel, and throw foes.
- Alph still serves as a palette alt for Olimar.
-= Bayonetta =-
- As you may know, her Bayonetta 1 and Bayonetta 2 looks use different gun sets (Scarborough Fair and Love is Blue, respectively). They have different shooting sound effects this time.
-= Wario =-
- His side strong attack is now a backhand slap/punch.
- His Wario Land shoulder tackle returns as his new dash attack.
- His Wario-Man Final Smash is now a comical cinematic beatdown, finished with a skyward fart-propelled tackle.
-= Donkey Kong =-
- His Final Smash is now the rapid-fire punch volley from Jungle Beat.
- He's much more expressive than before, as are other fighters.
-= Little Mac =-
- His new Giga Mac Final Smash involves a rush and a brutal punch-down.
- When unleashing Straight Lunge, you can make Mac turn the other way to attack.
- Jolt Haymaker no longer leaves Little Mac helpless in the air, giving him a chance to follow up and/or recover safely.
-= Ness =-
- For PK Starstorm, Paula and Prince Poo join alongside him to lend their power.
- When PSI Magnet absorbs an energy projectile, you can see a visual effect based on the move's animation in EarthBound.
-= Lucas =-
- Likewise, Lucas's PK Starstorm is assisted by Kumatora and Boney.
- Lucas's PSI Magnet also has visual effects based on its animation in Mother 3.
-= Wii Fit Trainer =-
- Their faces have been updated, making their facial features more distinct.
-= Mega Man =-
- His Mega Legends Final Smash now has Proto Man and Bass joining in the final strike.
-= Palutena =-
- With custom specials seemingly gone, Palutena now has four set special moves. We can see her use Autoreticle, Explosive Flame, Warp, and Counter (which becomes Reflect Barrier when reflecting projectiles).
-= R.O.B. =-
- A thin cyan meter can be seen in R.O.B.'s chassis, showing how much fuel his Robo Burner has.
- His down throw may actually leave the foe buried.
-= Peach =-
- Toad now has a different counter animation as he bravely defends his princess from harm. He also assists in pummeling and throwing foes.
-= Roy =-
- When unleashing Fire Blade, Roy can turn and strike the other way.
-= Captain Falcon =-
- His Falcon Dive has a new throw animation - he holds a hand at the foe's face, then presses one knee against their body to jump upward while dealing a fiery uppercut.
-= Sheik =-
- There's leather plates added to her outfit, and she also wears a scarf. Some believe this makes her look closer to her Hyrule Warriors version.
-= Dr. Mario =-
- Has a new down air attack - a hard two-foot stomp.
-= Greninja =-
- When unleashing a Shadow Sneak, the shadow that Greninja warps to will have two red eye gleams.

-= Echo Fighters =-
- Lucina and Dark Pit are now classified as Echo Fighters of Marth and Pit. Among all "clone" fighters, they're the most similar to their original sources.
- A brand new Echo Fighter was also shown - Daisy, the Echo Fighter of Peach. She has different effects, too, replacing pink hearts with yellow flowers, and Toad with Blue Toad. Her idle stance is a little more energetic than Peach's.
- Lucina seems to have a new backflipping sword attack. This is probably her new up strong attack.
- Dark Pit retains all his specials, including Silver Bow and Electroshock Arm. He still uses the Dark Pit Staff as his Final Smash - you can even see him holding it in his main artwork (again).

-= Inkling =-
- The newcomer revealed in the March 2018 Direct, it's the squid-kids of Splatoon!
- They use various ink weapons to coat foes in ink, which makes them more vulnerable to damage. They have the Splattershot, Splat Bomb, Super Jump, and Splat Roller as special moves, and the Inkbrush, Blaster, and Slosher as smash attacks.
- However, such attacks expend ink, and will be useless without it. To refill ink, hold shield and press the special move button.
- Ink attacks color the ground around them, but this seems to be purely decorational.
- The Final Smash sets a Killer Wail, which fires a long sonic beam that slowly tilts upward.
- The eight costumes are split between Inkling Girl (orange, yellow, pink, purple) and Inkling Boy (blue, green, cyan, indigo), all with vastly different outfit choices.

- Battlefield and Final Destination in this game ave the same design - a mystical stone platform hovering high above a ring of waterfalls. Pink flower petals drift in the wind here.
- New Donk City (Super Mario Odyssey): Mayor Pauline and her band can be seen performing.
- Great Plateau Tower (Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild): A tower high atop the wild Hyrule. Its roof can be broken, which will replace it with a pass-through platform for a while before the roof is restored.
- Moray Towers (Splatoon): A zigzag of pathways with pass-through slopes.

-= Other =-
- All Final Smashes this time are quicker and to the point. Even transformation Final Smashes are instead a fast attack.
- Damage percentage now includes one decimal place (like 11.1), so you can get a more accurate gauge on fighters' damage.
- 8-Player Smash returns as well.
- You can tap and then hold the attack button for flurry attacks.
- You can cancel your dash quickly into a smash attack.
- You can now attack while on a ladder.
- Air dodges now have enhanced mobility, able to shift your position quickly in midair and even get back onto a stage. However, using dodges too frequently will wear down their effectiveness, leaving you more and more open.
- Short hop attacks are even easier to use now by pressing the jump and attack buttons at the same time.
- You can use smash attacks by pressing the attack and special move buttons together.
- By releasing your shield JUST as you block a hit, you'll perform a Perfect Shield. This method makes it a little harder to use, so precision is even more important.
- In 1-on-1 fights, attacks deal more damage than in matches with 3 or more fighters. Also, certain heavy-hitting attacks will have a slo-mo effect, complete with a temporary change in background.
- In timed battles and the like, you can usually tell who's ahead by a subtle shine around them. This should tell you who to target.
- A special Nintendo GameCube controller is being made for the Switch - ready for use in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!
- All amiibo of the Super Smash Bros. fighters are compatible (even from different series). You can even make FP (Figure Players) to train and battle with or against, or reintroduce your old FPs from Smash 4.

-= Ridley Hits the Big Time! =-
- Oh yes! Let me cap this off with one more newcomer announcement - the long-awaited Ridley! The playstyle that he brings is just as brutal and vicious as you'd expect, able to deal out big damage.
- He typically crouches his body down while on the ground to conserve space, but he's able to stand tall.
- Some costumes change him into Meta Ridley.
- His standard special is a wave-path fireball. Charge up to unleash a long trail of fire, but he'll suffer some big damage if attacked in the mouth at this time.
- His side special is a grab that drags his victim along the ground. He has a variety of options at any point during this attack, like jumping or an upward attack.
- His up special is a multi-directional dive attack.
- His down special is a slow tail stab attack. The sweet spot at the tail's tip does some serious damage, but the rest of the tail does low damage.
- For the cinematic Final Smash, he hurls opponents into Samus's Gunship and then tears through them with a beam of plasma breath. Afterward, you can see the Gunship drifting down for a crash landing in the far background.

- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming to Nintendo Switch on December 7.

...Phew! So that was a wild ride. Obviously, this was almost entirely Smash, but there were a few other interesting titles brought up. I for one can't wait for Smash or for Fire Emblem.
