                                        1. Crossing my fingers for a surprise K. Rool character reveal.

                                          They can’t legitimately think this is an acceptable response to all those votes he was receiving in the ballot, right? …Right?

                                            1. why is he the shit? out of the 1000s of people to claim this in comments online, i have yet to see someone validate it in any way shape or form.

                                            2. Sure it is an appropriate response. King K. Rool is a stupid, repellent character, and Sakurai knows better. K. Rool didn’t even feature in the Retro developed DK games, and the only people who voted for this character are unimaginative retards who couldn’t think of anything else, which is funny, because literally ANYTHING else would have been better. Besides, the major franchise that receives the least representation in Smash is Metroid, so they should add another character from that universe. Of course, Nintendo hates Metroid now, so that isn’t going to happen.

                                              1. Irrelevant.
                                                Fact is a lot of people voted for K. Rool, so a Mii costume is not an appropriate answer in this case… unless Nintendo simply doesn’t want its costumer’s, money that is.

                                              2. i seriously dont get the k rool hype. he is only in a few old-school dk games, and even then he is a pretty uninteresting- uninteresting to look at, uninteresting to fight against, uninteresting personality, uninteresting attacks, etc. i doubt most of the people who are voting for him and claiming he is so cool have even ever encountered him in a dk game. so why? why the bandwagoning??

                                            3. “K Rool Won the poll!”

                                              NOW HE’S IN THE GAME YOU CAN PLAY AS HIM FER REAL AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

                                              I love this.

                                            4. Lol now if they don’t add K. Rool as a playable fighter they win the Troll of the Year award. But damn every time Splatoon or Kart adds cool shit Smash gets cool shit too and I don’t know what to play, and that’s not even considering the games coming out this fall that I need. All that said I love having this problem- it’s waaaay better than the droughts we faced during the console’s first year and change.

                                              1. Well Smash is led by Nintendo’s biggest troll we all know as Masahiro Sakurai so expect to be trolled heavily by Trollurai, the King of Nintendo Trolls.

                                                    1. No. A lot of people rather him not be the one, but they just don’t talk about it or post about it like those that do.

                                                    1. Mii Fighter is the general term for Mii characters. Mii BRAWLER is the one that fistfights. Chrom will probably be a Swordfighter costume, and I know I’ll be getting it.

                                                  1. I’m soooooo fucking pissed that this guy is just a costume and not an additional fighter. Godammnit, Ridley 2.0 situation obviously.

                                                    Why even have a fucking fan ballot!?!?!?

                                                    1. Because Sakurai is the King of Nintendo Trolls. He likes pulling shit like this on everyone. He probably did the ballot solely so he could troll us.

                                                  2. I'm a Boss Ass Bitch

                                                    Hihihihahaha yes bitches! Medusa still has chance see as king k just got a mii costume, Ultimately lowers chance in ever being a character. Now all we have left are those fucking indie bitches. I can smell medusa’s homecoming.

                                                    tournament mode… about fucking time. How is hard is it to fucking implement a Damn tournament mode ?

                                                    1. You speak too soon, friend. Don’t forget Meta Knight’s mask was shown as a Mii Fighter hat, this could be a similar stunt.

                                                      I’m not saying Medusa has no chance, but she really shouldn’t be a priority when KI already has three fighters compared to DKC’s two. Although we DO need more villains. Medusa, K. Rool, King Hippo, Black Shadow, etc.

                                                      1. I'm a Boss Ass Bitch

                                                        Actually that’s one character I don’t mind seeing in the game. I shall give you an cookie for that comment🍩.

                                                        1. Hmm. That cookie looks black here and pink in my email. Hell it looks more a pink doughnut and a black pokeball with a glare on top. Anyway, Yeah, I still wish it could be Simon Belmont, but Isaac is pretty cool too.

                                                          1. If Sakurai gives Medusa the same treatment & doesn’t add her as a playable fighter, we’ll see who’s laughing then.

                                                            1. I'm a Boss Ass Bitch

                                                              Never in a million years will medusa become a irrelevant mii costume.

                                                              I will be the one laughing playing as medusa.

                                                            2. I have no problem with of the information here and gladly welcome it. That’s the best damn Mii costume I’ve seen yet.

                                                            3. Kaptain Krusha K. Roolenstein for Smash

                                                              He better still have a khance in Smash as a kharacter. If he doesn’t, Sakurai!!.. I will look for you, I will find you, and I will burn you until you put him in the game.

                                                              1. Sadly, I can see Sakurai doing this with every Smash Ballot winner & every single DLC character we get will be characters he planned to use all along, using the Smash Ballot simply to troll us all. *sigh* I am now expecting to see Ridley as an outfit for Brawlers. :/

                                                            4. Me and all my buddies are old school gamers who love King K Rool, and none of us wanted to see his ass in smash lol. You gotta be kidding. With only 5 slots they should try and get variety from new games. I’m tired of seeing the roster grow with characters from the same game over and over. Nintendo has a lot more IPs and collabs than that.

                                                            5. Pingback: Rumour: Dr Mario Stage Coming To Super Smash Bros? | My Nintendo News

                                                            6. Well FUCK YOU Sakurai for this one. Ultimately killing the idea of actually bringing K. Rool to Smash Bros. as a fucking Mii costume which people don’t care about fucking Miis much anymore. I guess that the whole poll ballot to vote in your favorite characters was ultimately for making them a costume. Again, FUCK YOU!

                                                              1. Space Pirate Initiate 001

                                                                You do realize they also made a Link costume and a Meta Knight & Shiek helmet, yet they are still in the game. Wait until October for the ballot results to be revealed.

                                                              2. Well this is Sakurai we’re talking about here. The Smash Ballot wouldn’t be the first time Sakurai did something to give us false hope. *cough*alltheshotsatsizeovertheyearsbeforeSmash4’sreleasedoesn’tmatteronlytosayRidleyistoobig*cough*

                                                                Trollurai, the King of Nintendo Trolls strikes again!

                                                            7. From now on, I’ll refer to Sakurai as Trollurai because that’s what he is: a Nintendo troll. Hell! As I’ve said in other comments on this article, he’s the King of Nintendo Trolls!

                                                              Watch as every other Smash Ballot character gets a Mii Fighter outfit as the “winner will be made into a DLC playable character” was all just a lie from Trollurai so he could troll us Smash fans again like he did leading up to the game’s release.

                                                              “You people want DLC!? I fucking hate DLC but I’ll give it to you, anyway! Let me just pull an EA with the DLC & make it more expensive than it should be! I blame you all for pushing me to continue making this fucking series even though it’s my own damn fault for not letting my team do their jobs & actually help me with balancing the characters! Fuck you all!” I’d rather he do like Hideki Kamiya & actually be an asshole by telling us what he really thinks than do all of this passive-aggressive bullshit.

                                                              1. Hit the nail on the head there, friend. If Mii costumes are the best we are gonna get for the results of the poll, then what was the point?

                                                                I don’t know what kind of reaction I’ll get for this, but I think Sakurai should not direct the next Smash. Between his trolling, obvious Kirby & Kid Icarus bias, going back on his word, and nonsense reasoning for character inclusions (ask me about it and I will write you a fucking novel), he is not fit to lead.

                                                                1. I agree. I hope he keeps his word this time & doesn’t direct the next Smash. He’s holding this series back. And I truly believe he might have a huge bias towards Metroid. If someone wasn’t stopping him, I wouldn’t be surprised if he removed everything Metroid in the next Smash. If he really doesn’t want to do Ridley because of his bogus excuse, he could have at least done Dark Samus.

                                                                  1. Oh NO ONE had better remove anything Metroid in the next game, lest they piss off the Metroid fans even more than they already have.

                                                                    Vote for Sylux, by the way.

                                                                    1. I voted for Ridley. Might have been pointless as long as Sakurai is in charge of Smash if him using the size excuse is not him just lying in the same way he said Villager wouldn’t happen because he doesn’t fit in a fighting game.

                                                                  2. You guys do realize King K. Rool won’t be the last DLC character, right? Sakurai stated there would be several more character slots, all of which would be determined by fans.

                                                                  3. Pingback: More Super Smash Bros Mii Fighter Costumes Revealed | My Nintendo News

                                                                  4. Pingback: ¡Una gran actualización se aproxima a Super Smash Bros. para Wii U y 3DS! – Arcadiavg
