Or that Joker is being added as a new character in a port of Tokyo Mirage Sessions.

I would agree Cloud was an odd pick originally, considering the Final Fantasy game he is originally from wasnít ever on a Nintendo console (at least now its announced). Unless we hear about a Persona 5: Rubedo announcement soon, Joker is in a similar boat.

Travis Touchdown will be announced in the lead up to the release of Travis Strikes Again. His character trailer will NOT consist of him brutally decapitating a beloved Nintendo character while screaming the F-Word, but it'll be close enough that Twitter will have a similar meltdown like when Luigi "Died" in the Trailer for the Belmonts.

A Pokemon? Pajaro says It'll be a starter, but I think they're just gonna go with Eevee. I've never played Pokemon, but I know enough from cultural osmosis to know I don't like Eevee. GTFO you sickeningly adorable foxdog thing.

A Character From a Major franchise not closely related to Nintendo. Because you just know they gotta try to replicate the "Holy shit it's cloud" moment. I'd love it to be Master Chief from Halo. I'd hate it to be Steve(?) from Minecraft.
I'll literally burn the world down if it's Anyone from Goddamn Motherfucking Persona.

Something Something, Fire Emblem. Eh.
Fucking hell I'm some kind of psychic and I HATE IT SO HARD.

Can anyone confirm if the character selection can be reorganized to go be series rather than date of inclusion? I remember reading that it was an option in some reddit post but it may have been total BS.
Yeah, it does load really quickly, which is awesome. I feel like I remember reading months ago that the character selection can be organized another way, but I'm not 100% on that.

This would be quite a bold move for a minor third-party 3DS spinoff. Additionally, the DLC characters this time around were chosen by Nintendo rather than Sakurai (incidentally, this makes me suspect a Switch port is happening due to how niche P5 is).

Also TMS isn't SMT.

Joker's in Persona Q2, for the N3DS. I figure that's how he snuck in.

Ugh, I was hoping the DLC would be more like piranha plant and less anime, Fire Emblem, etc. types. Kids and wives want more cheerful characters.

Yeah, Cloud had been in games on Nintendo platforms as either a cameo or a larger cast of multiple Final Fantasy games too, so he technically didnít break the no non Nintendo platform games rule either.

Not until after the fact though, IIRC.

There were several KH games and the Theatrhythm games on Nintendo systems with Cloud prior to his first appearance in Smash

Yeah, in that heís basically known as a Playstation character, and was the star of the first Final Fantasy not on a Nintendo system. I would have expected a Chocobo or a Moogle or someone that was on NES/SNES.

Sonic predates either Cloud or Joker and that's as non-Nintendo as you get when you go back another half decade/twenty years.

Did they at least put some effort into Cloud this time? English voice acting? More music or stages?

I'm not sure SEGA is really a "minor third party".

Sounds like Ness is usually a pretty early unlock. Hoping I'll be just fine.

I got Ness pretty early, yeah. I like the changes to him -- more PSI effects in his normals, less weird body-stretching. He also got a lot of love in his presentation, with new Mother 2 style effects in his PK attacks.

It also amuses me that every Ridley I've fought in classic mode has been gigantic.

Oh no.

Lack of Smash has turned you into Yoshi.

Spoilers for the unlocking process:

It looks like each of the starting eight characters has a chain of others that they unlock; maybe use this to plot out the fastest route to getting your favorites.

EDIT: Apparently the below only applies to Classic Mode.

Iím assuming Ness is most peopleís first because unless youíre playing adventure mode itís just going through some numerical order of when they were added to Smash Bros. Edit: I GUESSED WRONG APPARENTLY

Anyway, I played through classic with Kirby on lunch break, and the customized touches for each fighters run are great so far. Kirbyís boss is Marx, yo!

Jigglypuff is kinda neat cause she's limited to fighting 64 characters on 64 stages. Since she was your very likely character 9 on the 64 it makes a lot of sense.

Donít know if this came up yet, but if you scan a non-Smash amiibo, youíll get their Spirit, if applicable. Seems you can only do it once, though, so donít consume them!

Is this for the story mode or something? I played as Link just in regular Smash battles and unlocked Ness and Zelda first...
