Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai, has revealed a fairly random character that was almost in Super Smash Bros. Melee. More specifically, Sakurai revealed that he and the team almost added Ayumi Tachibana, a character Famicom Detective Club, before ultimately deciding to abandon the idea due to the character's lack of presence outside of Japan. In other words, because a majority of Super Smash Bros. Melee players probably would have no clue who it is.

"Well, I was thinking about it during the Melee days - Famicom Detective Club," said Masahiro Sakurai. "Ayumi even has her own trophy in that game. But in the end, there's no way she'd work overseas. But I do like Famicom Detective Club."

Whether the character will show up as Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's final DLC character or in a future installment, who knows, but it's unlikely, as the reasoning for omitting her is just as relevant today as it was back then. Unfortunately, Sakurai doesn't divulge who ended up taking the spot that scrapping Tachibana presumably opened. 

For those that don't know: Ayumi Tachibana isn't even the protagonist of the Famicon Detective Club, but she may be the most popular, or at least the most recognizable, character from the series.

In the present day, the character lives on as a Spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and as a costume in Super Mario Maker. And of course, with Famicom Detective Club: The Missing Heir and Famicom Detective Club: The Girl Who Stands Behind releasing on Switch earlier this year, the character is probably as relevant as she's been in a long time, but still not relevant enough for a Super Smash Bros. roster spot.

All of that said, and as always, feel free to hit the comments section with your thoughts or, alternatively, hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_ and let me know over there. Should Sakurai and co. added Ayumi Tachibana to Super Smash Bros. Melee or did they make the right call leaving her out of the final release and the subsequent releases since then?

Could Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Be Adding a League of Legends Character?

ComicBook.com 27 September, 2021 - 01:11am

Quite a bit of information was revealed during the Nintendo Direct that aired on September 23, 2021. Although many of us were expecting to learn the identity of the final challenger for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighters Pass Vol. 2, it seems that we have to wait just a little bit longer before that knowledge is bestowed upon us.

During the Nintendo Direct broadcast, we were told that the Final Mr. Sakurai Presents for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is scheduled to debut on October 5, 2021. When this happens, not only will the character's identity finally be disclosed, but Masahiro Sakurai will also show fans how to use this mysterious character. Finally, their release date will be unveiled during the presentation.

It's extremely important to understand how this will be the "final" Mr. Sakurai Presents video for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo and Masahiro Sakurai have really been emphasizing the finality of this moment.

"We have some news about the last fighter for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game," said Yoshiaki Koizumi of Nintendo during the Nintendo Direct. "Mr. Sakurai, the game's director, will reveal this fighter in the final Mr. Sakurai Presents video on October 5. It's been about 3 years since the game was released. This will be the last presentation about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate."

There are certainly a number of fans that have been holding out up for a Fighters Pass Vol. 3 or just additional DLC characters after the conclusion of Fighters Pass Vol. 2.

However, it's clear that this upcoming presentation is meant to mark the end of an era for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Up to this point, Masahiro Sakurai has stated on 6 different occasions how this next character won't just be the end for the Fighters Pass Vol. 2, but also for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a whole.

The constant repeating of this message might appear to be excessive, but it really does feel necessary due to the nature of fan speculation.

"But finally, the next DLC fighter will be the last one. There won't be any more after that," said Sakurai during the Mr. Sakurai Presents Kazuya presentation. "It'll be a while before that announcement, but it'll be available this year as planned, so please be patient."

Sakurai would reiterate this one more time in the Famitsu Column that followed the Kazuya release. "This is the end: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be complete," declared Sakurai.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was first officially revealed in 2018, but development had actually begun in 2016. The game would be released in December 2018. It really has been nearly 3 years since then.

During the wait for the game's release, fans saw reveals for the Inkling, the "Everyone Is Here" theme, Ridley, the Belmonts, Chrom, Dark Samus, King K. Rool, Isabelle, Ken Masters, Incineroar and the Piranha Plant.

DLC characters via the Fighters Pass and Fighters Pass Vol. 2 would be released that made Joker, Hero, Banjo-Kazooie, Terry Bogard, Byleth, Min Min, Steve, Sephiroth, Pyra & Mythra and Kazuya playable.

Of these DLC packs, only Joker didn't have a "Mr. Sakurai Presents" video dedicated towards the explanation of his mechanics, but had something else instead.

The only other times characters were revealed specifically during a Mr. Sakurai Presents video was Byleth and Min Min — though we did know that Challenger Pack 6 was a fighter from the ARMS series. Indeed, this last time is slated to be a special event.

Now we're approaching the reveal of the final challenger, the final stage, the final date and the final Mii costume wave during this final Mr. Sakurai Presents for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Notably, the amount of DLC content that has been developed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has far exceeded what was released for Super Smash Bros. 4. Though it might be difficult for any Smash title to ever top Smash Ultimate, there may someday a new entry in the series.

However, this truly does appear to be the end for Smash Ultimate's additional content, aside from patches to make Fighters Pass Vol. 2 amiibo compatible with the game.

Of course, this is only one era for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Although the development of post-launch content will soon cease, the game will still be played for many years.

Direct in a Direct: We’ll find out the last Smash Ultimate fighter soon

Destructoid 27 September, 2021 - 01:11am

The Nintendo Direct was pretty popping, and we got some info on long-awaited games, as well as a few new ones. But there’s also DLC in the cards of course. Yep, it’s time for the last Smash Ultimate fighter. The announcement of the announcement, at least.

Nintendo had a few of those! In addition to saying that an Animal Crossing Direct would be coming sometime in October, we got an actual date for the final “Sakurai Presents” video: October 5 at 7AM PT.

So the announcement is pretty self-explanatory, but there’s a little meat in there tucked away. Beyond the final fighter tease it also states that the “final Mii Fighter costumes will also be revealed.” We kind of knew this was coming, but it seems like it’ll be the end of several facets of DLC, not just the twilight of the last Smash Ultimate fighter.

Nintendo even has a waiting room on YouTube for the stream already, which isn’t live for another 11 days. They know this one is going to draw an insane amount of attention, and I expect the reveal will be flashy and in-depth as always. There’s so much pressure on this last DLC character.

Will the brand new operating system win over the doubters? It’s too early to say, but Windows 7 2021 Edition gives us the best of both worlds -- the aged operating system we know and love, brought bang up to date with modern Windows 11 looks and features.

SEE ALSO: This Ubuntu Linux version of 'Windows 11' is available to install now

Conjured up by the Hacker 34, this concept design promises to be "faster, smoother, cleaner, and more modern, while keeping the general aesthetic". Or, to put it another way, it's "Fluent meets Aero for the best UI in any Windows."

His imagined OS offers a centered version of the Windows 7 Start menu and taskbar, and a tabbed version of File Explorer (we can only hope that one day Microsoft will give us this for real).

There’s a modern Task Manager, a choice of new color themes, and Windows 11’s widgets bar. It even lets you pull out individual widgets and drag them to anywhere on screen.

The all new notifications are a nice touch, as is the better quick settings.

SEE ALSO: Windows 11 Mobile is everything a phone operating system should be

The concept claims to be "most secure version of Windows ever", and the Hacker 34 even takes a cheeky swipe at Microsoft by saying Windows 7 2021 Edition can run on PCs that can’t handle Windows 11.

He also promises consistent design and animations across the OS, something Microsoft never managed with Windows 10.

Take a look at the video below and share your thoughts about it in the comments.

If you like this concept, you might also enjoy his previous Windows 7 re-imagining.

Original Super Smash Bros. Could Get New Life Through Switch Online

GameRant 24 September, 2021 - 02:03pm

N64 games coming to Switch is definitely great news. The initial pool of games will be pretty small, but Nintendo has plans to add more N64 games over time. One wonders if Nintendo will add the original Super Smash Bros. from the N64 to Nintendo Switch Online. Although the NSO game library tends to favor singleplayer games, it's become increasingly friendly to online multiplayer. Online multiplayer was initially a major selling point for the N64 and Sega Genesis games joining NSO. If that's the case, it'd be fantastic to get an NSO re-release of Super Smash Bros. with online multiplayer.

Nintendo just so happens to have the perfect venue to deliver Smash 64 with online multiplayer. Nintendo Switch Online may not always have perfect connection, but it still serves two fantastic purposes: Making retro games available to Switch owners, and enhancing those games with new ways to save and new online components.

The latest Nintendo Direct showed that NSO's version of Star Fox 64 will have online multiplayer, so giving Smash 64 the same treatment should be pretty easy. Besides, since Smash 64 was one of the N64's best-selling games, it just seems logical that it'd join the fun alongside other N64 classics like Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, both of which are bound for NSO.

Nintendo may not have announced Smash 64's inclusion in the N64 NSO expansion yet, but it seems pretty likely. The first Super Smash Bros. is such an important part of the N64's legacy that it's hard to imagine Nintendo skipping the game as it expands NSO's library. Since there's other N64 games confirmed to join NSO after the N64 expansion launches, it could take a few months to show up, but ideally it'll arrive sooner or later. With Smash Ultimate finishing its DLC lineup, Nintendo would be wise to offer fans some classic Smash to celebrate Smash Ultimate's success.

Super Smash Bros. released in 1999 for the Nintendo 64.
