It is time for our Rate That Character Round Up again! Who’s left to rate? Only god and Sakurai knows, but let’s get into the Rating Battle, shall we?
First, EpicMartin wants to talk about a certain Skeleton Fighter…
Verdict: “When it comes to Sans joining the fray, there is certainly a lot of baggage. While he has the advantage of being from a character-based game with tons of backstory and having his game released on a Nintendo platform… Sans, unfortunately, is in the same predicament as every other indie character… maybe even more so. Sans, unfortunately, suffers from not having the traits that make up the third-party cast. Iconic status, impact in gaming history and is not the main protagonist of his series.
Overall, it will certainly be an uphill battle for this skeleton to even… join the fray.”
Next, we have a lovable father-figure from the MOTHER-series (more well-known as Earthbound but just let me have the pun-game here). Does Flint have any chances, to be a good father to the Smash Brothers? TheHenriGames looks at his chances!
Verdict: “At the end of the day, Flint’s true potential might be a bit too far out for Nintendo to see. So it’s sad to say the chances of Flint making it are not that great.”
And lastly, Zedi goes over the chances of 2B, the protagonist of NieR’s most successful game in the series and PlatinumGames’ latest success story. Will this be enough for 2B to be included in Smash?
Verdict: “2B is a really cool character who could be an amazing character in Smash Ultimate and bring even more attention to her franchise making her a much more valuable asset to Square Enix. But she’s just not as iconic as other square characters and is especially new as a character under their name. As much as I’d like to see what she can bring to smash I think her future looks as grim as the humans of her world..”
And that’s it for this week! Until next time, my friends!
