They are already the strongest third party in Smash, but there is no shortage of popular Sega franchises to choose from.
With the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC, I've made it my point. I want to bring this new series of articles to the market, where all currently present third-party players with playable characters in Super Smash Bros.
We'll take a quick look at what characters they currently have in the game, how long they've been in the series, and what other interesting distinctions are made from company to company.
Then it's time to see what other great franchises are available that are suitable for Super Smash Bros. or simply meet the criteria that are important to the game's history or specific genres.
There are currently five third-party companies that have playable representation in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and we will review them one at a time.
After Joker from the Persona series was already revealed as the first DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it was so. It may seem unlikely that Sega would get another character, but you never know what in one Rumble like Smash will happen.
Let's dive right in and see what Sega has to offer the Super Smash Bros more. Series.
Sega was originally part of the Su Pro Smash Bros. family in 2008 at Super Smash Bros. Brawl when Sonic the Hedgehog joined the fight, meaning that the epic console rivalries of the 90s ended up with a real fight between Sonic and Mario could be visualized.
It was firmly rooted in smash history when Super Smash Bros. 4's last DLC character was introduced as Bayonetta, whose games are often released by Nintendo, though the character and franchise are all fully owned by Sega.
The upcoming DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is an interesting indication that Sonic was the only recurring 3rd party character from Brawl to get a new stage in Super Smash Bros. 4 and both franchise levels in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate ,
In addition, Sonic received a second Assist Trophy with Knuckles the Echidna in this game, joined by Shadow the Hedgehog, who had been an Assist Trophy since Brawl.
With this and Bayonettas Umbra Clo In the Tower Stadium, Sega remains the most widely represented third party, and since we know that the Persona Joker developed by Atlus (with Atlas owned by Sega) comes as a DLC, the lead will still be greater. 1
This could be a shock to many readers, as many of you probably have no idea what Puyo Puyo is at all, but the fact is that this is the turnover of Sega's second biggest video game franchise after Sonic the Hedgehog.
It also has the unique difference of being one of those really interesting things – representing a genre for which Smash Bros. has barely any representation, unless you count Drs. a bit strech, as he is Mario in a white coat.
See, Puyo Puyo is a competitive puzzle game that has been popular during many iterations, with the last major release being the switch version of Puyo Puyo Tetris, intersecting with the more popular Tetris franchise.
Puyo Puyo is huge in Japan and active since 1991. Due to the great success of Sega as an arcade company in Japan, you can find it in many arcades, if you want a fierce puzzle fight against a living opponent.
As For characters, Puyo Puyo actually has a lot, especially Arle Nadja, a young girl with magical powers (pictured with brown hair in the banner above). Combining the story as a character with Puyo's puzzle elements could make Puyo an exciting phrase, and let's be honest … It would be most unexpected if it matched what we expected.
This is a bit boring because in the earlier Capcom post I mentioned the argument about Devil May Cry, namely, that Yakuza has never been on Nintendo hardware.
This leads to a large impairment of its potential opportunities But with the explicit statement that they bring unexpected franchises, which you would not expect them to stand in Super Smash Bros. by Reggie, it is as if all the bets are from Even such franchises can be open to speculation. 19659010] For the past decade, the Yakuza series has been one of the most enduring intellectual property available to Sega, regularly receiving new games and a solid fan base around the world that loves the games and always craves for more.
For me personally, the very real way in which he depicts the vile backgrounds of Japan's criminal life, mixed with utter craziness in many aspects, is just a very charming series that's hard to forget.
We've already heard it so many yell after Kazuma Kiryu, the main character of the franchise, to join the Tekken series. We've seen that this is not going to happen or not yet, so this is the perfect time to send the series straight into the fierce Super Smash Bros. Ultimate brawl.
One thing is very clear in Super Smash Bros. – Virtua Fighter is very much appreciated. The series not only received several Mii costumes in Super Smash Bros. 4, but also the main character Akira Yuki as Assist Trophy.
One reason for this is probably the focus in Super Smash Bros. Virtua Fighter was the game that brought combat games into the 3D realm, even though Tekken had long outdid it in popularity and sales.
Given the lucrative working relationship Nintendo and Sega, as well as the obvious preference for the series and its importance to the game, Virtua Fighters are not crazy about a Super Smash Bros. debut.
The biggest obstacle to this It's obvious the fact that it's not a very active franchise at the moment, with the last major overhaul of a game in the series, Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown, debuting in 2010.
As for the characters, it's hard to imagine anyone other than Akira Y uki, the main character of the series … Although, to be honest, they could better stick to his polygonal model if they included him otherwise unknown players could consider him to be Ryu.
It's Hard To judge by what criteria Nintendo or its affiliates judge what counts as a DLC, Nintendo has no obligation to market the games of other companies. So if you look at a particular franchise you will probably be pushing for it. However, whether they are specifically focused on Virtua Fighter is quite another matter.
For this Sega part of the series I actually had difficulty choosing between the three in the text and the Vocaloid Hatsune Miku a sensation that has captured the world and is indeed a Sega figure.
Ultimately, I chose to avoid Miku because she is not generally considered a game of chance, though she also appears in games that Sega seems rather reluctant to put her in her other corporate crossovers like Sonic and Sega All-Star Racing which made me feel that they probably do not associate them with games as much as their regular franchises do.
Are Are There Any Other Sega Franchise Companies You Want to Become a Member of the Super Smash Bros. Family? Do you disagree with one of my arguments? Feel free to let us know in the comments.
Thank you for reading this story and hopefully you enjoyed it. Look forward to the four other parts of this series that will be released in the coming days.
