Who Are the DLC Fighters for Smash Ultimate?

Collab_Justin

krismii
Ever since it was announced that there would be DLC fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, there have been a plethora of speculation over who the new Smashers would be. Joker was revealed as the first DLC character, but who are the others? Speculating over this with us today is Justin from TWOTALL4UFOOL, and we are pleased and delighted he was able to join us again. Thank you for joining us, Justin!

justinmii
Sistas! Thanks once again for inviting your boy 2TALL on. I wish they would just announce the characters already.

rachmii
Always great to have you. I too wish they would just announce the characters though I don’t mind a little room for speculation. Nintendo can’t please everyone but they try their best. I’m sure they’re looking at people’s ideas and tucking them away for the future. There are a few characters I would love to have as fighters in Smash, but one I thought of the other night was Birdo from the Super Mario series. I don’t know why, but I think she would be a good fit, especially to be an echo fighter for Yoshi. I know they have a ton of Mario characters on there already, but I think Birdo would be a cool addition.

krismii
While I really enjoy the aspect of unlocking characters — I can remember how much fun it was to figure out and be surprised by the unlockable characters in Melee, for example — I am not so pleased with DLC as a whole. Having the characters announced already would allow us to pick and choose which characters to add to our games, perhaps saving a little money in the process. Honestly, I’m sure we’d get all the characters anyway just to complete the game, but the idea of saving money would be nice. As for DLC character I would like, I still stand by Geno from Mario RPG, even though he’s already in the World of Light as a spirit.

justinmii
My first pick for one of the characters would have to be Crash Bandicoot. I believe one of Activision’s franchises will be represented and i think he’s perfect. You already have Sonic so why not him.

rachmii
Geno would be a great addition to the game. And you bring up a good point that people would save money and not get the DLC if certain characters were announced. Crash Bandicoot would be an interesting fighter too. What kinds of moves would he have, do you think? My other vote, however, is Professor Layton. He’s kick butt in Layton Vs. Phoenix and I’d love to play him in Smash.

krismii
Birdo, Crash Bandicoot, and Layton would be awesome additions! I’d also like to see another female or two. I was a little disappointed that the other Street Fighter rep was not Chun-Li. Tifa Lockhart from the Final Fantasy series would be great to see, too. To add an IP that is not in Smash just yet, what about a Kingdom Hearts character? I haven’t really played those games, not yet, but Sora would be interesting… Or Mickey, haha!

justinmii
Geno I feel is a great choice. Birdo I feel should’ve been added as an echo fighter for Yoshi. I feel Crash would definitely have that spin move he does. I personally don’t think they will add a Kingdom Hearts character but you never know. Do you think any 3rd party villains could be added?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Having a Kingdom Hearts character would be fun. I wouldn’t might playing as Sora with the Keyblade. As for Mickey… I honestly wouldn’t mind seeing a Disney Smash as its own game! Adding more villains is a great idea too… I feel like there aren’t that many in the game at this point.

justinmii
My next character I feel they should add. Dr. Eggman/Robotnik! I feel he would be a great villain to add.

krismii
More villains would be interesting… I was about to say Dr. Eggman for Sonic and I’m sure Mega Man has some good villain characters that would be good for Smash. Imagine Sephiroth to opposite Cloud! To add another IP into Smash, what about Spyro the Dragon? I’ve also seen a lot of speculation of Minecraft somehow being represented in Smash… Not sure how that would work?

justinmii
Spyro falls under Activision. So I feel that between Spyro and Crash it would be Crash that would get in.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Dr. Eggman would be a lot of fun to play as! I would love to see Spyro too. As for Minecraft… I don’t think I care too much to play as Steve or someone. We already have the Mii Fighters. I could see Minecraft zombies being an assist trophy or something though.

justinmii
Yeah I could see see Minecraft zombies being added in as assist trophies.

krismii
If third-parties didn’t matter as much so both Crash and Spyro could be in the game, I still feel like Spyro would be fun. Gliding around and breathing fireballs, but being small enough for some speed would be great. Going back to Minecraft, Steve does seem to be one of the more popular guesses. By popular, I mean lots of people are guessing that Steve will be there rather than people actually being excited to play as him. Imagine Creepers and Endermen being assist trophies!

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Imagine playing as a Creeper! I’d love to sneak up behind people and just blow up. But I guess we’ll know soon enough what the other characters will be. It’ll be a fun surprise anyway. I’m looking forward to trying out Joker, even though we’ve never played Persona 5. I’m sure he’ll be great and so will the other characters.

justinmii
I feel if third-parties were no big deal there would be no problem letting this duo in the game. Banjo-Kazooie. That would be amazing. I also feel Nickelodeon would put in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to if that were the case. LOL!

krismii
I would LOVE the Ninja Turtles in the game! They had their own version of Smash back on the Wii, so why not put them officially in the Smash franchise? On that note, we’ve done a lot of speculating on this post and, as Rachel said, it’ll be interesting to see how all the characters officially mesh together. I think the last DLC isn’t being released until next year, which is a bit annoying to wait for… I wonder if they’ll add characters from brand new IPs, like Astral Chain that was shown in the Direct or a character from the new Fire Emblem: Three Houses game… Guess we’ll have to find out! Thank you again, Justin, for joining us! We’ll put his links up so everyone can go and check him out!

With the DLC for Smash Ultimate getting closer and closer, who do you want in Smash? Don’t forget to give Justin’s blog and his Game N’ Watch Podcast podcast some love!

Never Ending Backlog

Those of us who love to play video games not only have thin wallets, but also tend to have a ton of games on the back burner. With so many fantastic developers and publishers, dozens of video games can be released monthly and it can be difficult to keep up with all of them. Joining Rachel and me in venting about our giant backlog of games is our good friend Justin over at TWOTALL4UFOOL, a fellow gaming and tech site as well as one of the hosts of the Game N’ Watch Podcast. Justin, thanks so much for joining us!

justinmii
My pleasure. Thanks for having me.

rachmii
Kris and I have been meaning to go through our video games and organize them. There are a lot we haven’t played yet, some of them we’ve had for a few years. These are games old and new. One that especially comes to mind is Has Been Heroes. It came as a bundle when we got our Nintendo Switch back in April 2017. We still haven’t had a chance to play it even though we’ve been close to starting it quite a few times.

krismii
That poor game, yes. Another Switch game that has been stuck on the back burner, surprisingly, is Octopath Traveler. It’s still fairly new, but with how much we enjoyed the game when it first came out, I feel bad that we haven’t finished the stories just yet. Justin, wasn’t the oldest game on your backlog list? Or is there a game you’ve been anxious to play but just haven’t gotten the chance yet?

justinmii
For me I’m stuck right now on Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PS4. So everything I’ve been playing before that is either on the back burner or I haven’t opened up. God of War is on the back burner. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is also on the back burner. Mario Is Missing…. I mean Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon is on the back burner. Sometimes I tend to start games and just not finish them. But right now in terms of games that haven’t even been taken out of the plastic are Octopath Traveler, and believe it or not a PS3 game. Assassin’s Creed Rogue. It’s pretty old now. But I really wanted to play that game but I got in around the time I got my PS4. Kind of bad timing but I hope to get to it soon. Too bad the PS4 doesn’t have backwards compatibility. LOL!

rachmii
Wow, you’ve got a lot. I can’t believe you haven’t played Dark Moon . Though I can’t say anything because my backlog is just has big. It’s partly why I’ve been reviewing Nintendo DS games lately. I’ve been trying to catch up with games I’ve never played – even though I’ve had them for years – or games I started a long time ago and just never finished. We too had a couple of PS3 games that haven’t been opened… in fact, we haven’t even turned on our PS3. The backwards compatibility is the same problem we have with our Xbox One. All our 360 games that we haven’t touched can’t be played now.

krismii
Glad we’re not the only one with PS3 games on our backlog! Backwards compatibility was always something I appreciated from Nintendo and, despite how awesome the Switch is, I’ll admit that I was disappointed when I first heard the Switch would not have backwards compatibility. Now there are a quite a few Wii U games that were ported to the Switch, which is great, but I’m not willing to spend money to buy a second copy of them just to play on the Switch. New consoles don’t seem to help our backlogs, haha!

justinmii
So will you two be picking up New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe? I know that this month is going to be a nightmare and just add to my backlog. There are so many fantastic games coming out. Super Mario Party, WWE 2K19, Red Dead Redemption II, Mega Man 11. The list goes on and on.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
I would personally love to pick up New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe. I love those games and they haven’t come out with them in a while. However, it probably won’t be the first thing we pick up. October and beyond is going to be rough – on the backlog and on the wallet. I’m waiting for Super Mario Party and Luigi’s Mansion 3DS for this month. There are a few others I’d love to try but know I won’t get to right away.

krismii
I’m not too excited about New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, I’ll admit. Those games are fun with company, but they don’t hit any of my top video game lists. Super Mario Party is what I’m mostly looking forward to this month. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey seems interesting too. It’s a series I’ve wanted to try, and we do have a few titles that were on our backlog for our Xbox 360. We never got a chance to try the games before our 360 got the red ring of death. I have to double check and see if any of the titles are backwards compatible now. If they are, our backlog list will grow!

justinmii
Those Assassins Creed games on the last gen consoles are amazing. You should definitely check them out. Sorry about the red ring of death by the way. I have a road map of games I would like to buy from now to end of the year. They include Mega Man 11, WWE 2K19, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I feel bad I will be playing more games before I even get to Octopath Traveler. Smh.

Rachel Mii Double Jump
As mentioned, Octopath Traveler is a game that we’ve started and reviewed but we haven’t had a chance to finish the game. There are so many we own and want to play, let alone the games coming out in the next few months. Octopath is definitely one I want to get back to soon though. I also have a few older games on my backlog that I want to try to work my way through. Games such as my DS and 3DS as well as the NE and SNES Classics.

justinmii
That’s the same problem I’m having with God of War right now. I’m more than half way through Spider-Man so I hope to get back on it soon. If WWE 2K19 doesn’t take up too much of my time. Too bad playing video games isn’t my day job. LOL!

krismii
I remember you talking about God of War when it was first coming out. I’m sorry you haven’t gotten the chance to get back to it! There’s just so many games and so little time to play them all. I love how we talked about a lot of games not only on our backlog but games that will probably end up on our backlogs because of future games coming out, haha! Thank you again, Justin, for joining us on this post! Please go and visit Justin’s blog and be sure to give his podcast a listen! You can also find him on Twitter and Twitch!

justinmii
Thank you two sistas for having me. It’s good to know I’m not the only gamer out there with a full backlog of games they’re trying to get through.

Rachel Mii Double Jump

It was our pleasure! We’ll definitely have to have you back again.

How many games are on your backlog? Don’t forget to give Justin’s blog come love!
