    Loving the combo moves that they showed off for him. Made the game look a lot more fluid.

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSS I was sad that the Spirit Tracks level had led us to believe there wouldn't be any Toon Link... but he's in! Sooo happy.

    Going by that logic Ridley might have a chance, one version for the MOM level and another playable one. It'll be perfect.

    2 in 1 month? this is getting intresting.

    So Pokemon character for when X/Y come out, another one when Mario 3D Worlds comes out and finally I suppose Diddy will be announced when DKC:TP comes out.

    Again, this coincides with the release of a new game. Fully expecting a Pokemon announced in 2-3 weeks.

    Yeah but we also have to note that Peach was revealed randomly No doubt about Pokemon especially since the 12th smash character update happens to be on Pokemon X and Y's release date. If Peach and TL are a hint, maybe it means 2 characters per month now, and it would make sense as next month we have Pokemon and Sonic Lost World

    I love toon link's new colors, considering how pale he was in brawl. Ah shit, he just popped out of nowhere, when we expected him to NOT come. I hope Sakurai atleast makes him different from regular Link, saying he wanted to cut characters yet brings back a clone.
  • C.King - September 26, 2013 8:49 a.m.

    notice wii U. maybe young link gonna step in for 3ds since he was refreshed in a remake too so we won't have toon link on the spirit tracks stage unless we figure out how the versions interact.
  • C.King - September 26, 2013 8:51 a.m.

    nvm, just checked site he in 3ds version too. Funky! they could made that a character difference

    Judging by the images released so far, Toon Link appears to have an identical moveset to Brawl. At the least, his Up, Down and Neutral Specials seem to be intact (Spin Attack, Bomb, Arrows). So at the moment, he would be very similar to Link again. In fact, I think, apart from Pit and Bowser, every other character so far has been identical to Brawl. Makes me wonder what Sakurai is actually doing and whether these are placeholder movesets, but I doubt they'd go through the effort of fully programming a placeholder and then releasing official images of it. Toon Link was different enough from regular Link though; Link was nigh unplayable whereas Toon Link was pretty good. The difference was in Toon Link's agility and floatiness, whereas Link dropped like a sack of potatoes.

    ikr! regular link was funky to handle in brawl. crude they identical? i don't really like brawl mario.
  • JarkayColt - September 26, 2013 10:16 a.m.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Mario has been shown using all his previous Brawl Specials, most notably the F.L.U.D.D, which IMO probably could have done with being replaced. It was very, very situational and barely worth charging. Also, Sunshine is an outdated game now. I'm sure that, out of all the characters, Mario certainly has the largest wealth of possible move inclusions. Wouldn't hurt to have changed a couple of them.
  • shawksta - September 26, 2013 10:10 a.m.

    He was different yeah Also one of Sakurai's messages, one of peach's images, he specifically states that some movesets are still in development and might even change despite what they showed already. and yesterday's image was this http://oyster.ignimgs.com/mediawiki/apis.ign.com/super-smash-bros-next/a/a3/Marioluigibattlefield23452daily.jpg We already know Luigi is entirely different from Mario and the only similarities are his B and Up B, but in the pic shown, his jump is now entirely different, more closer to his Flutter Jumping ways. Which is neat.
  • JarkayColt - September 26, 2013 10:23 a.m.

    Really? But is Sakurai talking about completely replacing moves specifically, or simply just tweaking them? I mean, it's a given that most of them will be changed for balance reasons, as always. However, I do hope that a couple of the moves are refreshed entirely before release. Some of them have barely changed over all this time. Then again, moveset issues really are only ever a problem with clones, and as you say, Luigi is pretty much completely different to Mario. Didn't realise they'd changed his jump; that's pretty nice! I still think the worst offenders are the Star Fox characters though, and Ganondorf is the one most in need of a complete overhaul assuming he's returning.
  • shawksta - September 26, 2013 11:23 a.m.

    Who knows, what is major is that Statement meaning it can go either way and the fact that Sakurai bothered to say it in the first place. Yeah hopefully if Ganondorf stays, let him actually use his sword and such. Back in Brawl days, Sakurai even mocked the fact that Ganondorf takes his sword out on a taunt rather than using it. Fludd, and Squirtles water gun for that matter ARE situational, its knowing when's the perfect time to use them.
  • JarkayColt - September 26, 2013 8:16 a.m.

    Great! Toon Link was my main in Brawl! Also, this makes the people who wrote off Toon Link so quickly because Engineer Link was in the game's background look rather silly. For starters, Toon Link is clearly based on the Wind Waker/Phantom Hourglass incarnation anyway (we knew as much from Brawl), and the Link from Spirit Tracks is a whole different person (read: WW Link's supposed grandson or great grandson). In other words; no continuity error arises provided Nintendo make that distinction. They're seperate people. So thar! Also I've never heard of the "Sword of Time" before. I don't believe any Link has ever swung that one, lawls.
  • C.King - September 26, 2013 8:44 a.m.

    toon link is toon link, this makes sense if it wii u version only cause it is still funky to have identical looking characters as both back ground and playable, this is making me guess this will be a version difference, young link will be for 3ds cause of 3d OoT and toon link for wiiU for the HD remake isn't the master sword obtained in the temple of time?
