This is all the explanation you need for why Shantae is awesome.
Shantae is awesome, but just watching the trailer is not enough to understand how awesome she is.
Fine have a longplay instead.
Haha. What I really meant was that playing it is a must-do, but I didn't expect your answer.
The only problem I can forsee with Shantae is size.
On the one hand, her character is around three blocks high and two thick; she's gargantuan compared to everyone else and may not work in the game's world.
The other size problem is skin sheet size; she's got a lot of sprites even without her animal forms or special attacks. And with her being a big character to begin with, that would make for a truly massive skin sheet.
Those two problems aside, I would kill to get Shantae in this game.
Or any game. Shantae for SSB4.
I've never played Shantae, but that trailer made me see why the game is so popular. It looks kind of awesome, it reminds me of Monster World IV a little, and Shantae herself reminds me of Asha...
But Shantae has BEWBZ!
I think she would work, at most, as a simon skin (Maybe a ryu skin, but i'm not sure).
As a character, yeah, she would be GIANT compared to other characters...
I tried her over Simon once; the only way to make her fit was to mangle the sprite to the point where it became ugly or misproportioned (or both).
Never tried Ryu. I think someone was going to once and I was like "by the way, she's pretty huge and might not fit" and I think that deterred them from trying, but I'm not sure.
I thought about skins, but she doesn't do projectiles, which literally everyone does.
Have you watched the trailer ? You can see her launch fireballs.
Magenta is a fan of her if I remember correctly.
This is true, you can purchase items that let you shoot projectiles and do other things. I'd forgotten about that.
I think the ones which could be used as character only are:
Five Float Muffins. Eat one for protection against pits!
[Bouncy Pits cheat on.]
Vanism Cream. Lets you walk past enemies!
Five Twin Mints. Twice the attack and double the fun!
As for possibly working as skin:
Twenty Storm Puffs. Tricky to use, but extremely powerful!
[It summons a small cloud which sends thundershocks directly downward. Travels forward for a bit then disappears.]
Ten Flash Bolts. Attack from a distance!
[Those are what I miscalled "fireballs".]
Ten Pike Balls. Defend your body and attack your foes!
[It spins around Shantae and does damage to enemies.]
Ten Fireballs. Faster and more powerful than a Pike Ball
I don't remember everything from trailers I see.
Yeah sorry about that.
That's one of the reasons playing it is primordial to understand how awesome she is.
Well after reading this thread I'm convinced... to go download Shantae on the eShop. Time to see how awesome she really is.
Okay after several hours of gameplay I'm hooked. And I'm only playing the GBC game, can't wait to try the DSi game. And yet seems like most of her abilities would be wasted in Crossover. And because of her height, she would have to crouch to attack every baddie except bowser. So while I would love her in Crossover, not sure she is a good fit. But definitely a great character.
How about we move game discussion to a new thread I'm about to make and SMBC discussion stays here.
YOU BET YOUR DAMN ASS I AM
LOVED THAT GAME SO MUCH
Everyone knows about the Kickstarter, right?
