Caught me off guard. For a while, I was always trying to figure out what Square Enix character made sense for Smash. Clearly Cloud but FFVII never appeared on a Nintendo platform so it came down to characters like Crono, Terra, Moogle(Mog), Sora or a Dragon Quest character.

Wonder if this hints at anything for the future? Hmm...

This also means we're getting a Cloud amiibo too! :D

The whole Direct was just so glorious. 3DS is a jRPG beast this coming year - which makes me even more sad for my poor little Vita - unless SE puts their money where their mouth is and releases both Setsuna and Scarlet Grace as well.

I didn't want to get ahead of myself, but it seems likely that the two companies made some sort of deal. An announcement regarding the VII HD remake and the upcoming NX at a later date wouldn't surprise me after witnessing this.

Incredible announcement. The best thing is how true to his FFVII design he is.

Insta-buy.

(But that is now even more sword characters... I still hope my Dixie gets in)

Dont know about mega man, Sonic Pac Man but Solid Snake appear in MGS The Twin Snake a remake from MGS1 for Nintendo Game Cube and Street fighter 2 was also on SNES.
Mega Man has a strong history with Nintendo and there are a ton of games that have appeared on Nintendo platforms in the past. The first 6 games appeared on NES. SNES got Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X-X3. There are a ton of games on Nintendo handhelds too. Also, a bunch of Mega Man games have appeared on virtual console and the Mega Man amiibo can be used with the legacy collection to unlock more content.

Nintendo and Sega used to be rivals back in the early 90's. Nobody back in the day thought that we would see Mario and Sonic on the same platform and in the same games. Besides Sonic appearing on Nintendo platforms today, I think Nintendo and Sega made a deal for some exclusive Sonic games too for Wii U.

Namco created Pac-Man. They are also the developers behind Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS. Miyamoto also personally wanted the character to appear in Smash.

If VII comes on the NX does that mean XV will come too. Since both of them come out next year it would be interesting to see XV as a NX launch title along with Dragon Quest XI and The new Zelda. The NX could have a god tier launch.

I dont think Tabata wants to pressure the dev team more by programming for a 3rd console, though XV could come to NX some time after launch.

That really kinda depends on how powerful the NX is. If it can't handle PS4/XB1 games then probably not.

Smash 4 has what, 9 sword users now? Geez. But I'm not complaining.Having Cloud in is amazing. I haven't gotten any of the other DLC characters for smash, but I'll get him for sure.

Anyway, I sure hope VII Remake (and XV) can somehow come to NX. I kinda don't want to buy a PS4.

How does Cloud even go from having skinny arms to looking like a bodybuilder in a week.

Also, a Nomura-drawn Link? What a time to be alive.

Messed around with Cloud for a little bit. Seems pretty strong, particularly his air up smash, and Limit Break is powerful. Still getting used to his recovery; sometimes hit B again to smash back down to my death on Climhazzard. I'd love to put some time into this game to get good with him. Since I've bought him, I should make the effort.

Wish they added some remixes of FF7 music tho. The two battle themes are great, but really would have liked a couple more if they weren't gonna do any remixes like they did for Street Fighter.

Cloud in Smash was initially surprising news for me, but in retrospect it actually sounds reasonable now that Bayonetta is in.

And I'm not complaining. Bayo is awesome.
