(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.”
