character updates

Your weekly weekend podcasting source recaps the biggest news in anticipation of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – Youko returns with Super, TonyTH, and our guest Grant Smith (MasterWGS) to discuss the four character updates of the week, a Nintendo Direct with Mother 3D rumor, Smash Bros. as a “happy accident,” Jun Senoue rocks a Mega Man 4 medley, the Alolan Raichu Pokéball update rounds up this week’s Smash Blog updates, and questions from DVDSmith and Zenjestr about changing movesets for more game references and the character reveal that would make us lose our mind

(46:45) MAILTIME
• (46:59) DVDSmith: “There’s been a lot of talk about characters’ movesets changing or not changing (mainly in SSBU around Ganondorf and the appearance of his sword). Would you rather your main got an entirely new moveset that was more referential to their original games (like giving Luigi his Poltergust), or would you rather keep the same moveset from previous Smash games with minimal changes, to keep continuity between the titles and so you don’t have to relearn your main? Personally, I’m in favor of new movesets because it will add more originality and reduce the number of non-Echo fighter “clones” (for example, giving Young Link a moveset based entirely around the masks from Majora’s Mask, to differentiate him from Toon Link), but I’m interested to hear your thoughts.”
• (55:10) Zenjestr: “What character reveal would make you absolutely lose your mind? Think D1’s reaction to Snake coming back.”
