Mario Chat / Koopaling name origins confirmed
« on: December 30, 2015, 06:15:06 PM »

Quote from: Dayvv Brooks, Nintendo of America product analyst
“Music has always been a big part of my life. I’ve been a DJ for years and have been a music collector for even longer. When I first saw the group of seven Koopalings, music was on my mind.

The hairstyle on one of them reminded me of Ludwig von Beethoven for some reason and Ludwig von Koopa was born. Next was the one with the glasses—that has to be Roy Koopa in homage to Roy Orbison, who almost always wore glasses. Then Wendy O. Koopa (Wendy O. Williams) [and] Iggy Koopa (Iggy Pop). One looked like a loudmouth, so he was Morton Koopa Jr. from [the] loud-mouthed talk show host Morton Downey Jr. And then there was Larry. There’s no real-world equivalent—he’s not Larry Mullen Jr. from U2 or Larry King—he just looked like a Larry.

That brings us to Lemmy. In addition to being a great name, it’s perfect for a video game character. This Koopaling struck me as being the kind of character who would do his own thing, no matter what anyone else thought. I think it was those crazy eyes. Lemmy Koopa was in the crew.”

I do think there's a certain charm to the crappy early 3D graphics. It's hard to tell sometimes how much of the creeping sameyness is due to better graphic hardware -- they have enough polygons now that they don't have to decide which features of the characters to represent and which ones to leave out or make less detailed, which kind of had the effect of different art styles even if they weren't intentionally doing different art styles.

It annoys me that Fire Emblem characters going to be in four different places on the character select screen -- three in the main Fire Emblem section, one in the clone strip, one near the beginning of the DLC strip, and one near the end of the DLC strip. I'd pay an extra $0.25 for Bayonetta if buying her also bought a reorganized character select screen.

But does that mean we're not getting a video presentation of the ballot winners? Cloud's probably gonna be up for download right after the Direct, since he was pretty much done in the last video, but are the others just gonna appear on the eShop in the spring with no previews?

I always figured that the reason for the Geno cameo and the music (including the battle themes being almost identical structurally) was just that the first games in the other RPG serieses drew more on SMRPG because that was all they had to go on, and then branched out into their own things from there, kinda like how Sonic Advance 1 is basically Sonic 4, but Sonic Advance 3 is very much a Sonic Advance 3. But this makes a lot of sense. Superstar Saga was basically a spiritual successor to Tomato Adventure, which, from what I can tell, had multiple party members but only had two in battle at a time, so it would make sense if SSS originally had more party members, and Luigi ended up crowding the others out.

Which reminds me, why the hell has there never been a fan translation of Tomato Adventure? That game looks great.

The "final" thing seems weird. The ballot only closed two months ago, and even though the ballot was more of a suggestion box and didn't really need to be tallied up, it still doesn't seem like they could have gotten development on ballot character(s) far enough by now.

The other big question is if the FF7 remake is coming to the NX.

I'm naming my Cloud amiibo Mallow.

Banjo and Kazooie definitely deserve a spot to represent the Rare N64 era (Diddy's kind of doing double duty now of representing DKC and DK64); the big question is whether Microsoft would also let a Banjo-Kazooie game go up on the eShop (maybe Grunty's Revenge)? Every other character in Smash is in at least one other game on the eShop -- R.O.B. is in Mario Kart DS, Cloud is in Theatrhythm and FF Explorers, Snake is in MGS3 3D , and Japan gets Mother 3 on the Virtual Console next month. I don't think they'd put in a character with no potential for cross-promotion at this point.

I'll be kinda surprised if we don't get Mallow and Geno Mii costumes now. And Banjo-Kazooie just got a little more likely.

Also Snake better come back now.

They seem to be focusing on who has appeared in both 'Paper Mario' and 'Mario & Luigi', which doesn't leave a whole lot.
And even then, they're not doing everyone -- Toadette is in, but not her paper version, even though TTYD is the only non-sport game Toadette was in before now.
