I don't believe it. I mean, is Shovel Knight even out in Japan yet? I also don't think that both Smash and Shovel Knight being at PAX is any solid evidence for his inclusion into the roster. I remember after Roy and Ryu were announced, Sakurai said that there are a few more DLC characters coming, and that the ballot would just be fan service, and although Shovel Knight could be voted in, the poll doesn't close until October, so it seems pretty unlikely that they would announce the winner of the ballot 2 months before it is even supposed to end. The Smash booths could just be either for people who haven't yet played it or possibly one of the few DLC characters Sakurai hasn't talked about.


That being said, if he is included, I think it would be pretty cool, but I'm not super interested in him as much as I am Simon Belmont or Snake.

It's pretty impressive how far this character has come in such a short time. Of course, Yacht games deserves it, but it was unexpected to say the least.

Interesting. I may have to pick that up if it's possible to find. Shovel knight is definitely an icon among indie games. Though this still doesn't make me believe he's in smash.

If anything, I think it deconfirms his appearanc ein Smash, provided this is real anyways. If he were in, it'd make more sense for him to have a Smash Bros amiibo. Still, an amiibo isn't bad either... Though it kind of sucks if this is the "Megaton" exclusive content Wii U owners of Shovel Knight get. It isn't goign to be free, unlike the PS4 and XBone's exclusive content.

Oh it's real, and it looks sweet. It actually unlocks some pretty cool stuff. It also looks pretty high quality.

Pausing the video on Nintendo's youtube, Shovel Knight has a gold base like the smash brothers line and the design kinda looks like the smash base, but it's too covered up for me to tell.

Well seems like I was wrong.

But the black design of the base does look suspicious when all the other series outside of smash bros had a different color.

If it were in the Smash Bros. series of amiibo then it would have the cross design that Smash uses underneath the character. Shovel Knight just has what looks like his helmet on the top part of the base. Perhaps we'll see a Shovel Knight series of amiibo someday. If that were the case, a Shield Knight amiibo would be super cool.


Oh also according to Yacht Club Games' twitter, the ones with the gold on the base are prototypes. The retails will have purple on them instead.

Xenoblade X is getting a pretty sweet special edition. An art book, a soundtrack, and a custom USB drive. Too bad the soundtrack isn't a disc.

That's good to hear. He seems to be a renown figure at Nintendo, so let's hope that he does alright.

No one can fully replace Iwata San though.....

Never give up hope for what could be.

Though he'll never be able to fill Iwata's legacy, I'm glad that they promoted within and that it wasn't an important dev. Apparently he plans on staying true to the legacy that Iwata left behind as well. I hope he'll do alright.

Looks like he's only going to be president for one year? Hmm,

If he continues to do what Iwata was doing, not much will probably change. He's probably just contracted for a year to see what happens and how things go. Who knows? Maybe he'll do better than Iwata, You never know.

That makes sense. Mr. Tatsumi is rather old, he's at an age where he should be thinking of retirement. I think they elected him for the time being because Nintendo is at a volatile point right now, the NX is looking to be released next year, they need a safe choice to guide them and (hopefully) ensure a strong launch, otherwise it'll more or less be Wii U.2, in terms of success.


As for a president being instated from the outside, I can see pros and cons from that. On one hand it could make Nintendo's services more modern and they'll actually be with the times. On another hand, they could go the route of Ubisoft to maximize profit... The prospect sounds like a game of Russian roulette, really.

I do kind of wish the Smash Bros team would consider making less gimmicky stages, something more along the lines of Battlefield and Smashville though... But still, this is nice.
