Characters I'd like to see in Smash Bros for the Switch

I have to give myself credit, no one's ever done something so creative like this before, lololol. No one's ever posted a list of their top hopes for Smash Bros characters. Don't even bother searching it on YouTube. Heh. (Yeah I'm bad at intros.)

Okay, seriously though, at the time of this writing, we have gotten nothing more than a single teaser trailer for the Smash Bros Switch game, and all we know for sure is that we're getting the Inklings as playable characters, and Link is getting a Breath of the Wild makeover (whether it's a costume or not, we'll see). And we're getting this game in 2018 probably.

What I'd like to see from a Smash Bros Switch Port

*This list was made before the Smash Bros teaser played at the end of the recent Nintendo Direct*

You know it's coming. I know it's coming. We all know Smash Bros 4 is coming to the Switch. It's just a matter of when. And once the Nintendo Switch port of Super Smash Bros 4 is announced, it'll mean one less reason for me to get a Wii U. Pokken Tournament, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, etc, etc. And those games will have extra bells and whistles. Considering that Smash Bros 4 had the two versions, the Wii U one and the 3DS one, we have to assume that the Switch port will all manner of extra content.

Here's what I personally would like to see;

1, All DLC content - That means every character, every stage from both Smash game versions and every Mii costume must be available on disc from the get-go. Considering that Pokken on the Switch had five extra characters than the Wii U version, and will be getting additional characters, I think it's reasonable to assume that we'll get the DLC content from both editions of Smash. And the music and trophies too.

2, Smash Run HD - The 3DS version was relatively lacking in features compared to the Wii U version, but I think we'd all want Smash Run over Smash Tour. Oh, and a secondary mode where you can play Smash Run for more than five minutes.

3, When it comes to customizable moves, I only want one thing; when I collect the move, I don't want to see it pop up in my rewards screen again.

4, When it comes to the Mii Fighters, how about we get some costumes from Miitomo? Who wouldn't want to play as a winged Tyrannosaurus with Christmas socks on?

5, I don't think we necessarily need any new characters, but if we do, let's keep it simple. I say the Ice Climbers are my top pick. They were sorely missed in Smash 4, and since they aren't trying to make characters function on two different systems, there's no reason to not include Popo and Nana.

Also, why not add Squirtle and Ivysaur? And Wolf. And Pichu-geez I never thought I'd hear myself saying that. Maybe we could have Young Link as an alternate costume for Toon Link. As for characters from new franchises...I say save them for Smash 5.

6, Add more trophies for each franchise - It's never made any sense to me that Animal Crossing got a bajillion trophies while Yoshi's series for instance got a handful.

7, Remove useless things like "Global Smash Power" and Street Smash.

Like I said in #5, I honestly don't feel like Smash Bros for the Switch needs new characters. We have so many great fighters in the roster as it is, there's not much room for improvement.

The first post of 2018-

-and definitely not the last.

Nothing major this time, I just thought people might appreciate seeing this recent Instagram post of mine; a piece of the Berlin Wall. Literally a piece of history.

Good bye and good riddance to 2017

I'm spending the last couple of hours of 2017 doing what I did at the end of 2016; social media. Yeah, social media is frivolous, but after the year I've had, I just want a bit of enjoyment. Perhaps I will go into length as to what happened this year. Perhaps not. All I know for sure is I'm more than ready to put the year behind me. And I hope that 2018 will be a much happier and more productive year, because the alternative is catastrophic.

Hopes for Hal-Con 2018

1, See more friends and acquaintances.
2, Eat more sushi.
3, Find more deals.
4, Not get sick again.
5, Not spend too too much.
6, Meet more celebs.
 7, Have at least two cosplays.

Thoughts on Alita: Battle Angel

Full disclosure; I own (and have read) all nine volumes of the original Battle Angel Alita manga. I have seen both episodes of the OVA. I've only got a couple volumes of Last Order, and have not followed the series for quite some time. To illustrate to you just much time I've spent away from this franchise, Mars Chronicle was completely new to me.

We've known that James Cameron was interested in adapting Battle Angel Alita for a long time now, early '90s I think.

I didn't really get interested in the series until 2008-9. I ordered volume 1 at the local bookstore, and I was hooked. The art, the detail, the story. It all pulled me in and kept me there for eight more volumes. I started losing interest in Last Order, I kind of forgotten about Alita.

My apologies for a lack of posts this year.

Family issues have taken a lot of my time. I'd rather not go into details.

I will probably not be posting as much art to this blog. But I do want to post more writings.
