Are there 43? Because that's how many playable characters were in Tekken 6.
Well, to be fair, Tekken's resources have been recycled for dozens of games. Old characters are brought back with maybe a few tweaks, but coming up with an entirely new roster with unique movesets, models, and animations takes a lot of time. I'm guessing this game will have 20-25 characters at the most with more added in updates, like with Super Street Fighter IV.

Eh, fair enough. Still, that kinda makes my point a little stronger: The fact that we have seen non-iconic Pokémon in this game so early is a clear point that this is not going to just be the mascots taking up all the roster.
True, but it's a Pokemon fighting game. Pokemon's made a name for itself already without having to rely on people recognizing the most popular characters. I mean, I know they're going to throw in Greninja and Mewtwo. I just wish they didn't.
Remember how excited we all were when Ivysaur was playable in Brawl? It was so unexpected. I love surprises like that.
Yeah, totally. I'm hoping we just get a few of the popular ones and then the rest of the cast is filled out with weird and cool ones. I actually wish the early rumours that the game would only have fighting types was true. Beyond Lucario and Blaziken I can't think of many fighting types I'd consider overdone. That reminds me, didn't the first footage we saw of this game aaaaaages show Lucario fighting Blaziken? Where's that dude now?

A Wii U port of Pokken Tournament has been confirmed, and is releasing worldwide next spring:
Arcade Hit Comes to Console in Spring 2016
BELLEVUE, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo today announced the upcoming release of Pokkén Tournament for the Nintendo Wii U home console. Currently an arcade game available only in Japan, Pokkén Tournament for the Nintendo Wii U will be released worldwide in spring 2016.
Developed in collaboration with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc., producers of TEKKEN®, one of the most successful fighting-game franchises in history, Pokkén Tournament brings Pokémon to life in a way never before seen, where Pokémon in battle move in direct response to the player’s actions. The intuitive controls make this fighting game accessible to players of all skill levels, and the stunning visuals emphasize the size and power of each Pokémon.
“Pokkén Tournament combines the best elements of a traditional fighting game with an authentic Pokémon experience,” said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “Fans will be thrilled to see their favorite Pokémon battle in a whole new way.”
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
