Okay with only less than 7 6 hours left (until the E3 Nintendo Direct) and with the confirmation that there will be a SSB trailer of some sort from Sakurai, anyone want to have a guess at who could appear in it. (old and new)
Previous SSB game E3 reveals. (probably going to be more like the Brawl reveal trailer since Melee was probably near finished in terms of development time)
Game name predictions
SSB Forever/Fourever/4ever SSB Clash SSB Fray SSB Cross/Crossfight/Cross Melee SSB U and 3D (keep it simple?)
Characters in trailer prediction
Old Mario, Link, Pikachu, Kirby, Samus (in suit), Pit, Ness, Marth (Shadow Dragon version)
New -Little Mac -Takamaru -Ridley -Alph (replaces Olimar since Pikmin 3 is coming out) -Shulk (Xenoblade) -Barbara the Bat
New third party guest fighters -Travis Touchdown (or a new Suda 51 character from a future NMH3 game, Suda 51 is in the credits list for SSBB) -Mega Man (Capcom wanting to push the character back into the spotlight) -Dragon Quest character (positive Square Enix relationship?) -Pac Man (Since Namco is developing)
Items Mii assist trophy Tingle assist trophy
Stages Battlefield stage WuHu island stage Rhythm Heaven stage (something crazy vibrant to contrast the previous two)
And then the trailer will probably end with releases 2014, 15 years of smashing annivsary (1999-2014)
I'll admit, I bet most of this (95%) will be wrong as it would be too many characters for them to show (compared to the SSBB E3 reveal) but we don't exactly get a thread like this (with a short timeframe) for the SSB franchise every often now do we?

Here' let me give you the skinny, straight from the depths of my arse:
A trailer shows off Nintendoland. Mii's run around, dressed as various Nintendo characters. A Mario Mii looks at a Link Mii. The audience growns at Nintendo showing off Nintendoland 2. Then... BAM! Real Mario jumps in. Real Link jumps in. Real Pikachu and Real Kirby jump in. Title Screen. Surprise, bitches, its Smash Bros: Showdown. Shows familiar Smash Bros gameplay, with these four characters, on a NintendoLand themed stage. Screen 'zooms' out, revealing 4 sets of hands 'playing the game', with different controller combinations (Wiimote, Wiimote / Nunchuk, Pro controller, Classic Controller) showing off local multiplayer A Miiverse style notification comes up. NEWCOMER TAKAMARU WANTS TO JOIN THE FIGHT Takamaru jumps in, shows off a bit. NEWCOMER LITTLE MAC WANTS TO JOIN THE FIGHT Little Mac jumps in, also shows off a bit. Footage of Mario vs. Link vs. Takamaru vs. Little Mac Zooms out again, shows 2 sets of hands playing in a traditionally American looking setting, screen splits in three, showing a pair of hands in a traditionally Japanese looking setting, and a pair of hands in a European looking setting. Online play is obviously being pushed. The 4 clash. Master Hand shows up. Screen zooms out again. Fifth player is now involved, using the Tablet controller. 5th player boss mode confirmed. Master Hand is getting the better of all the characters. Takamaru, Little Mac, Link knocked out. Only Mario left. Miiverse notification: "Looks like you could use some help" REVEALED AS FUCKING MEGAMAN Cut to black Crowd explodes.

I'd expect the Japanese name to be somewhere along the lines of "ultimate", since it went through Deluxe and X. The English name may (or may not) be another noun for combat.
I don't know if that whiteboard drawing actually means anything (since the portion shown is just Brawl stuff), but I wouldn't be surprised to see Luigi and Marth available from the start this time (since they're early unlockables in Brawl in terms of VS count).
Takamaru seems to be everyone's pick, which makes sense since Nintendo has been puching Murasamejo lately. Alph seems implausible, since Charlie is the leader of them all.
I don't have much to expect; just things I wish to see in the game. Some of those probably clash with what others want, like I want to see Marth axed (with a Swordreaver, even though Marth has never seen one) in favour of having two FE characters from the same game. I also want to see Dillon as a "new" representative -- as a counterstatement to the whole "Nintendo has no new character-driven IP" thing.
And again, more than characters, I want to see customizability. But that probably won't make it to the reveal, since characters, stages and items are always the things people care the most about.
3 hours to go, huh? I'm sooo excited! Come on come on come on...

There's no way the actual trailer can top DiU's post, but I am predicting (hoping/expecting/setting myself up for dissapointment) the game will expand on the whole assist deal, making them not items only but makes them summons MvC/JUS style and that the reveal trailer will show off a shitton of Nintendo characters, but nobody can really tell who will be fighters and what majority will be assists. Also tripping. Veterans will be tripping on new stages. Newcomers trip into screen. Tripping.
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
Jun 14, 2021 10:31:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
