          All the worldbuilding won't save that every character is flatter than the SF2 cast. No dialogue, no stories, no nothing it's very lame. Feels more like a tech demo and frick min-min, what an asinine choice to represent the game for Smash. May as well skip Ryu for E.Honda in the next one.

                He had to come up with something. Imagine holding a global 8-month popularity content and literally crowning Min Min "The Ultimate Champion" only to have the round 1 loser join Smash simply because he's on the box.
                SF also has a long legacy of being 35+ years old, with Ryu being the face, of course they'd choose him. Arms has one game with pretty much nothing established, so it's easy to choose whoever they want, so why not the most popular character.

                At this point, Min Min is the Ryu equivalent of Arms. If they ever make a second game, she'll be front and center on the box.

                Ryu is never the most popular character either, Marth was never the most popular FE lord. That's not how Smash works and he fricking knows it. ARMS is not special enough to break convention. Spring-Man got cucked into the AT role because the director said it's too new and then he got a precious DLC slot for his DOA series.

                Maybe so. Regardless, she's become one of the most popular and used characters in Japan. Min Min's found a new home in Smash Bros, similar to characters like Fox, Falcon, and other popular characters from dead IPs.
                Learn to like a character for what they are rather than the series they're from. Arms isn't great, but she's one of the best additions despite that. Nobody gave a shit about Spring Man, and choosing him out of some silly "MC" principle would've made for a poor marketing decision.

                We all know it would have been Spring-Man if not for the AT. Pass 2 was not decided when base game was, only Pass 1. Min-Min is a compromised pick. Brings down the vibe of the roster, she's a fine character but her being THE arms rep feels wrong. It just does.

                What vibe are you even talking about? The game has 3 Links, Ganondorf as a Captain Falcon clone for third time in a row and a glorified recolor of Pit as a separate character, but a character that doesn't happen appear in the boxart from their game of origin is what really bothers you?

                You can have your qualms with the implementation but the choices of Link, Young Link, Toon Link were correct. Min-Min feels like a weird pick when up to this point Smash adhered so closely to mains are first to an almost autistic degree. Yes it brings the vibe down.

                The same story events that make Ryu the main character of SF2 despite him having fricking nothing to do in the plot. Promo material, placement on roster. He is literally the ""shoto"" of ARMS style gameplay and everyone else is essentially a variant of him.

                You don't know anything about Street Fighter do you? Street Fighter 2 Ryu had the reputation as the strongest fighter in the world thanks to him defeating Sagat. compare that to Springman, who... is just another guy on the ARMS Roster, he's not even the champ, that's Max Brass.

                SF2 Ryu is retreading SF1's karate man enters tournament """story""" just like Spring-Man is just some guy who trains a lot and tries his best. The real SF2 plot is about Chun-Li/Guile and Bison and everyone knows it. That's why every movie is about that and Ryu is just some hobo they enlist to help.

                It's fairly typical of a main character in a fighting game to be bland like that, easier to pick up and play, an all-rounder, has clones. Remind me which arms character has a clone again? Hint: It's not Min-Min.

            Most fighting game characters are one-note, this is nothing new, we're lucky new games of the genre dare to have more extensive story modes like SF6 with more lore about the characters, otherwise most of the character traits used to be told by little bits and pieces like winning quotes, endings and profiles.

    Been playing since launch, had my main king dedede in elite since basically launch, here are my observations:
    >shit netcode
    >shit rule set swapping between games, this means that if you have flat stages with no items set and the other guy has stages with hazards on and items, every other game you play will be hazards and items. This is really fricking annoying because i feel like with the popularity of smash’s comp scene even casuals don’t want to play with gay stages and items.
    >the matchmaking is terrible, it will match you up with people wildly above your gsp if you are not already at least in elite. This is silly because once you get good enough it’s way harder to fall out of elite than it really is to get into it. More on that on the next point
    >elite is the easiest online max rank to get in any fighting game and it’s not even close, granted I’ve played more smash in my life than other FGs, but just on an experience/elo level it’s easier, albeit inconsistent. low gsp has really bad matchmaking, every 3rd or 4th game you get someone double your gsp, it gets easier though as matchmaking generally gets better as you get higher gsp because the vast majority of the players are kids who suck. Sometimes if you have a high roster gsp you can get really lucky and start a new character on ranked and get elite in a few games, when you start a character that is at roster gsp you have a multiplier for gsp lost or gained for like 3 games, I myself and my friends have experienced this several times. All of these factors make the experience really inconsistent on an elo level, but overall if you’re not a scrub it’s still not that hard to get a character in elite and keep it there, in fact it’s super easy to keep it there because after you get so high you can lose over and over and barely lose 10k gsp each time. Thats nothing when you have almost 13m.

    It’s fun but not great.

        An anime/manga smash bros clone or straight up fighting game would be very cool, but keeping it shonen jump only would be boring because we've seen goku naruto and luffy interact so many times already, i want to see them interact with characters like guts or tohru or ryuko or whatever
