Super Smash Bros. The Next Generation - Day 15

Huff'N'Puffin: Running to Find Yourself!

  I finally managed to pry my eyes away from this beauty long enough to write this. I really wish Nintendo would go out of their way this much for some of their games. I love stupid swag.

The Adorable Veteran - Kirby

   Kirby, Kirby, Kirby: he's the star of the show. There's not a whole lot here that Smash fans don't already know, and personally, I don't see a lot of need to change much. Kirby's pretty 'baws', and always has been. I'd say if we updated anything, let it be his Final Smash. The Cook thing was cute, but I think between Mass Attack, Epic Yarn, and Return to Dreamland, our options have expanded. His Final Smash opportunities are, respectively;  a swarm of Kirby's that overtake foes, a giant rocket-shooting tank, and busting out a huge honking sword to bust dudes up with. All of those sound really appealing, so please, oh please, take your pick. Perhaps a pack of sword-wielding mini-Kirby tanks that shoot rockets...

  Kirby has two directions we can go with costumes. We can start giving him Hats to go with his color swaps, which I'm all down for (Mirror Hat Kirby! Tophat Kirby!) It's either that, or we go with Yarn Kirby. He'd have to have his hats re-stitched, and his powers re-fabricated, but I think it could work all and all. He's so damn cute!

The Potential Newcomer - N

  It's easy to see why N might not be a favored character with some people... But there's a unique idea here. Rather than just being a Pokemon Trainer clone, N's mechanic revolves around him calling in Pokemon to help him. He has an aversion to keeping pocket pets locked in their little orbular prisons, so they'll either hang around him or be quickly summoned in with his special attacks. For example, his Up+B could summon an Archeops to carry him up a short distance. His Forward-B could Klinklang to do a beam attack, and his +Down+B could could summon Carracosta to protect him with his shell.

  His Final Smash could be summoning Reshiram and/or Zekrom to drop some Fusion attacks on the stage. As for an alternate costume for this Sudowoodo-hugging hippy, I'm thinking maybe a more loose-flowing hippie outfit. We shall see if Pokemon Black/White 2 has any neat outfits.

The Stage of History - Find Mii

  Perhaps not my strongest idea, but a stage set in the castle or kingdom found in Find Mii and Find Mii 2 could make a neat little stage. The ghosts and demons that haunt this fortress could be your stage hazzard while Mii's from your Mii Channels go scrambling around in the background. Simple, but cute.

The Music of Find Mii

Find Mii 2 - Dark Lord

  This is actually a really cool piece. I like the haunting melody placed over a high-energy beat.

Find Mii 2 - Armored Archfiend

  Another whimsical, but dire song.

Find Mii 2 - Save the World, Heroes!

  Drama! Intensity! Combat! The clash of metal! The heroes sword! The villains claws! This is the sound of the history of battle! A hero needs victory, and the villain needs to not die! Other Soul Calibur-quality Lines!

3DS Menu - Friend's List
  Jaunty, is really the only word I can use to describe this tune. Maybe peppy.

3DS Menu - Mii Maker
  The classic tune is back!

3DS Menu - Shop Channel Theme

  I mean, yeah, it's no Wii Shop Channel theme, but that's no fault of it's own. Not everyone can be the best. Still, it would make a more relaxing paced track for the stage, which could be a neat change of pace. It certainly wouldn't be the first.

  Get ready. Another article is coming up soon. Any favorite Pokemon preferences for N? What hats should Kirby wear? Why is nothing ever going to be as good as the Wii Shop Channel theme?
