Everybody's favorite glass-sporting female video game character will soon be joining the Super Smash Bros. fight.
First Cloud and now Bayonetta, thats pretty awesome.
I miss snake
@Austin48 Imagine having Snake back with a Big Boss alt. Would have been amazing but maybe next time.
Lol Konami is waiting.
Snake is now busy with Pachinkos.
Snake had a hard life
Snake was so much fun. Especially with the smash attacks he had in project M.
Bayonetta should have joined Smash broa. last year already though.
it was a fantastic direct. beyonetta in smash is cool smash is crazy. my only disappointment is that they didnt announce a smash bros ultimate for retail with all the dlc. i mean, i have not played this smash on wiiu, and if i were to buy it now, i would have to spend a fortune on dlc... why dont they just release a new version at retail with everything included. package it with a cloud amiibo and you got a sale..
I am hoping they do that as well, for the preservation of this game. Otherwise we'll have all kinds of versions of smash like 1.06 and crap floating around with half the characters and the final version of smash 4 will only survive as long as the consoles do. Smash 4 Ultimate, with the final patch, all DLC characters, and all stages pressed on to the disc.
If you were to buy only the playable characters, and disregard the rest of the DLC (which is cosmetic and doesn't impact the game in any significant way), then you would spend an extra $35 for 7 characters. An average of $5 per character. That's quite a bit of money, but not as much as you would spend if you just bought ALL the DLC, which would be an absurd overkill and totally unnecessary. Or you could just not buy the DLC and get used to the base game at first. As it is, it's already got an absurd amount of content and characters on the disc. Either way, good luck. ;)
I was thinking they may do a GOTY edition but with their DLC prices that was very wishful thinking on my part but it is quite crazy I'll get Bayonetta for sure but having already got Ryu and Lucas for both Wii U/3ds and the couple of stages (luckily got mewtwo for free) but if I was to buy the other 3-4 characters I have left to buy I've pretty much bought another whole game again, I love smash bros and I'm happy for a couple of new additions but at £5/6 each they soon rack up, the games are great value for money as it is but when I'm paying nearly a 1/6th of what the game cost day one a year ago for one character?! it's quite expensive. Shame Snake wasn't snuck in or Tails and Knuckles to join Sonic maybe even Ryo from Shenmue, final smash he runs you down in his forklift truck.
They might in the future, but if its anytime soon don't expect a $60 price tag. This game will live on forever with it's amazing cast of characters. On another note, I can't wait for Emblem Fates. Xenoblade Chronicles X is making that wait seem shorter though. Speeking of can't waiting, what will Nintendo annonce next.
Still waiting on Banjo and Kazooie. Phil said he was cool with having them on smash but the old president of Nintendo R.I.P didn't not let it happen. Here is hoping the new president is more open and will put Banjo on Smash.
I highly doubt Spencer ever said "Iwata doesn't want these characters in Smash". If he did, refresh my mind.
Good to know that more 3rd party characters are getting added to the SSB roster.
Bullsh*t there's no way bayonetta won the ballot. Dammit Europe why you so weird?
Europe has great taste, Bayonetta is a quality addition imho. Which ones beat her in the worldwide polls?
All they said was she was #1 for the European vote, they didn't say who was #1 for US or Japan.
Probably Wolf, Snake, and Banjo Kazooie? Snake for sure but I doubt they got the rights.
The lead character in one of the greatest ever character action games. Makes a lot more sense to have her in Smash than Ridley or whoever.
I don't know why your getting disagrees. I highly doubt Bayonetta was actually #1. It was probably #1 in terms of what Nintendo is actually capable of doing. Considering that characters like Master Chief, Shrek, Banjo-Kazooie, Goku, etc were requested.
She was in the top 5 and they said of all the rtop characters she was the one who the most realistic to realize in the game. it makes sense
Yeah and that's why its bullshit they basically said out of the characters that made sense she was #1 worldwide. We don't have any knowledge of who was in the top 5 besides her. They didn't even mention the Japanese poll because I bet she didn't even touch the top.
Banjo actually won the ballot.
Link? I'd love Banjo.
If you don't like bayonetta, then you must be ? You know the type that doesn't like girls. Can't say the word but it also means "happy".
Or they're simply not just some neck beard f*ggot who jacks it over a game character? IMHO Banjo, Crash or King K Rool would have been much more interesting.
Actually I like Bayonnetta I never said I didn't. She was actually a character I had in my predictions for the original release. My problem is she did not win this ballot there were several characters with more votes and all we have to go by is nintendos word that they werent possible, which i dont believe.
Japan wasn't taken into consideration because they got their fire emblem rep #6 Also like they said, she was #3, but the most realizable character.
They never said she was #3 they said top 5. Id guess she was either 4 or 5 since they didn't want say it specifically.
I think Bayonetta is a great choice. Not one of my most wanted but its cool to see her in. And its really surprising to see such a mature character as well.
I love how they specifically say she was the most voted "realistic" character. Looks like Shrek and Goku were the top 2.
They said no such thing. They said #1 REALIZABLE CHARACTER worldwide. Meaning some of the votes cast were for characters that just weren't possible to be realistically added.
@jholden Yeah, i know what they said. Miiverse BS is just the first thing that popped into my mind. I used that word off the top of my head but i know what they meant.
YES, YES, YES, YES, YES, YES. https://www.youtube.com/wat... http://i.imgur.com/avZf09U.... http://i.imgur.com/I1QlwV0....
She'll be fun to use
look man i just want a bomberman game. if not in smash bros then at least his own seperate game developed by HIDEO KOJIMA...
Wish i recorded my reaction.
THIS WAS EVERYTHING I COULD HAVE ASKED FOR AND MORE
Lol i dont want to be in your skin...
That's a strange way of putting that.
Bayonetta better sell more copies now since she was the number voted character, bull that the game didn't even reach a million sales.
All we need now is Travis Touchdown!!!
I remember like it was yesterday when Kamiya was angry that everyone kept asking him about Bayonetta in smash. An now, here we are.
I know right!!!!!
I literally could not care less about any of the previously announced fighters, but hot damn as soon as I heard her voice and saw that moon my hype levels went through the roof! This will be the first piece of dlc I'll purchase since it was announced, finally a reason to fire up Smash again!!
This was a let down for me same goes for that FE character they announced. Missed opportunity IMO ;)
You really need to bring down someone for being happy.
And the bombed was dropped!
In your opinion.
It is impossible to beat this roster for any other fighting game. This is the best roster in the history of video games.
Agreed. You can't beat a fighting game with Mario, Pacman, Mega Man, Ryu, Bayonetta and Cloud. Along with the other 50 characters or so. It's insane.
What makes it so good also is that each character is faithful to what made them great in the first place. The characters are not just skins, they are the actual characters fighting. Even subtle things like Mario's jab is his attack in super mario 64, or Shulk jumping is the exact same as he does in xenoblade.
I'm so glad, Bayonetta is such an awesome gal
I voted for her...glad she got in...any characters like banjo, Simon, or k rool would of also been super awesome...only nitpick is I'm sick and tired of fire emblem characters...seriously that slot of the new for emblem character could have been used for a more interesting character but that just my opinion
Their advertising Fire Emblem Fates by adding in that character.
Good point dude but man seriuosly...its my fault though for having wild hopes of my favorite characters as a kid being in smash but who knows...I may like this new fire emblem character once he/she is released...its just I feel burnt out on fire emblem characters as well as sword characters but like I said. .I'll give him/her a shot though
I voted for HER YES YES YES YES YES YES!!! I WAS SPEECHLESS!!
Wasted your vote they said Too Lewd they said NEVER EVER they said DAY ONE
Excellent choice in Bayonetta. Sucks Geno is just a skin but its a nice one at that. I'll take it.
A game with: Mario Link Donkey Kong Samus Mewtwo Cloud Ryu Sonic Mega Man Pac-man Bayonetta Pretty epic.
Shame they couldn't Sneak Snake in and Tails/Knuckles in to join sonic tho.
There is Tails suit that was added for the Mii fighters.
Bayonetta clearly the best choice they could have made. THe wish lists of weird fanboys who wanted characters from the 90s was stupid.
How would that be stupid? Imagine Smash with no characters from the 90s. There are iconic characters that helped Nintendo grow. I'm happy that Bayonetta won but saying having old characters is stupid is absurd.
I mean characters that no longer have any link with modern gaming. Mother is still relevant. Pacman still has games. Duckhunt was an icon from the famicom So was rob the robot. But random stuff that was being voted to win had no real place in the conscious of most current gen gamers, or had no nintendo connection was silly. I also think, indie game characters that have not even been released in Japan would be pretty pointless.
I'm pretty glad for Bayonetta, but there's nothing stupid about wanting iconic characters from the 90's or 80's. Smash Bros is a celebration of gaming icons, and nostalgia is what it's built on. Why do you think it's so awesome to have Mario, Donkey Kong, Sonic, Pacman, Mega Man, Ryu and Cloud together? It was only missing Bomberman. :P
What would the move set even be.. Punch bomb kick bomb? There are enough twee characters as is. More Fire Emblem more real fighting game style characters is a much better choice.
