So....

Like....

This happened:


100% legit.  Direct from Nintendo themselves.

But what I REALLY wonder is... is there some kind of Square Enix/Nintendo deal going on that we just don't know about yet?  Something FFVII-specific?  I mean, Ryu in Smash was weird, but Street Fighter games have actually been on Nintendo platforms.  FFVII never has, to my knowledge.  Not.. yet, at least.

I've heard rumors of FFXIV, XV, and even the VII remake possibly coming to Nintendo's next console, the NX.  So there could be a deal going on.

Then again, Snake appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl didn't lead to anything else Metal Gear-related on the original Wii, so who knows?

Fuck Shit Stack.



Apparently he was the most requested character to be brought to Smash Bros. Sakurai probably walked into Squenix head quarters and said "Hey guys do you want to make a billion dollars?" They were probably like "Hey yeah I like money."

Yeah, but Twin Snakes was on Gamecube not THAT long before that (and, technically, the Wii could play GC games too).

It's happening because of FF Record Keeper's success. DeNa (Mobage) is a second party Nintendo developer now. It's no secret that they've heavily featured bits from FF VII in that game and effectively made a lot of money. SE is just licensing out their characters and getting a paycheck, to be honest.

Things I love about this trailer, deep-cut references edition, from most to least obvious:
1) Flower girl Zelda.
2) Cloud with Wario's bike.
3) Seasick cloud on a boat.

God Cloud's a whore! VII, Tactics, Ehrgeiz, Dissidia, Kingdom Hearts, Crisis Core, and now Smash Brothers. Guy will do anything. That being said I would pay $40 right now for his amiibo!

This is like a cloud parting (pun unintended) and a beam of light shining down from heaven.

I loved the fuck out of that shitty, shitty game.

Also added to Smash:
Some FE character I've never heard of but will probably love.
WTF IT'S BAYONETTA (AKA:  the character who won the poll and they could actually get)

So I finally got around to downloading Cloud and Midgar last night and holy shit, I don't think I've taken to a character so quickly.  He is immensely satisfying to play--fairly easy to pick up, a little trickier to master, but not overwhelmingly different like some of the more out-there characters (Mega Man, Ryu, Ness, Robin, probably Bayonetta to be honest) tend to be.  The Limit Break mechanic is great, and I love the satisfying little noise it makes when it fills up naturally and you just know shit's going down now.  Argh, he's so good.

Midgar as a stage is also really neat.  For one thing it's gorgeous, particularly when the more graphically intensive summons get triggered, and the stage mechanics are just different enough to set it apart from the various Pokemon Stadium stages it's similar too.  Sadly it only comes with two themes--the main battle theme and the BOSS BATTTTTLE theme--but the two of them both work incredibly well as Smash Bros battle songs.

I got the package that came with the Geno outfit, but I don't really play the Mii characters much.  But for the character and stage, definitely a 10/10, would download again.
