Outside of Pichu, I honestly don't see anyone in this list joining. In the event that they do, my (completely random) bet is that they'll be lumped to the 1994-1998 group. Makes more sense to me that Nintendo 64 characters fall into the same category.
These are the past stages I hope would come back: Planet Zebes (64), Yoshi's Island (64), Saffron City (64), Kingdom (Melee), Kongo Jungle (Melee), Great Bay (Melee), Fountain of Dreams (Melee), Fourside (Melee), Pirate Ship (Brawl), Summit (Brawl)
I wouldn't mind paying for all these. Hell, I wouldn't mind paying for any extra stages (old and new alike). I just want more stages.
Still, I wonder what Dr. Mario and Rhythm Heaven stages would be like...
My take is that I hope this is not true. Bomberman as a partially modified Snake makes zero sense.
Can't say much about Shovel Knight, except that who the heck is this guy? We did have Roy back in Melee, but they're perhaps having different criteria now because Smash today is much different than before. It now has more vocal fans and all that. Also, sensasionalism. Where are the Rayman fans now?
Personally, I'd like them to stick to just Nintendo, CAPCOM, SEGA and BANDAI NAMCO characters. I'd accept SQUARE ENIX and Koei Tecmo too -- the bottom line is that they should be major Japanese publishers with current ties to Nintendo. Now excuse me while I disable auto-update for my Wii U.
What the fuck is up with all these people wanting Shovel Knight? He's just some indie garbage on every other console! And Shovel Knight got extra characters and stages on PS4 and Xbone. Why would he be in Smash?
Ugh. And the K Rool hype is getting reeeeeeeeally annoying as well. I want him in the game, and I want Isaac. Both would be perfect additions but now we're getting people begging for K Rool who have no idea who he is. It's driving me a little off the wall.
I thought the PS4 and Xbone only got one exclusive boss fight each? When Shovel Knight came out it was only available on PC, Wii U and 3DS, and Nintendo are making Shovel Knight Amiibos. And the Nintendo versions have extra Miiverse/Streetpass stuff other consoles obviously didn't get. So although it's been ported to other stuff since, it's still got a strong Nintendo connection. I haven't played it myself, but all I hear about it is how awesome it is, and how it's one of the most successful indie games ever released on consoles. I can see why people want him in.
EDIT: Also this. Apparently Nintendo accounts for exactly half of Shovel Knight's overall sales.

The Shovel Knight amiibo isn't being made by Nintendo, they are lending tech support so that it can be a functional third party accessory, but the manufacturing is being done by a completely separate company (just like the Skylanders amiibo).
The thing about SK (and Shantae) is that they're bandwagon characters the same way that Geno was when Brawl in development. A few loud people get the ball rolling, and suddenly lots of people pile on because it's the cool thing to do. Smash Bros. character debates are serious business after all.

I still don't understand what the hell people see in Geno. He was the least interesting part of SMRPG (which, compared to Paper Mario and M&L combined, kinda pales now), his design is fugly, and Mallow was infinitely superior to him.
He's not even that. He doesn't seem to express any emotion whatsoever besides... determination I guess? He just shows up, delivers a bunch of exposition, then goes dead quiet for almost the entire game until you reach Smithy's place.
Nester the Lark: Hello, NinDB world! Post your shouts here! (But be careful not to wake the neighbors. )

nocturnal YL: Guys, guys! I can't believe what I found in Zelda 1! The game features an Elimination Mode that for some reason not many talked about! I wonder if it's fun? (Don't actually try it.)

nocturnal YL: Hey, I can edit shoutbox posts! This is already better than Twitter!

Nester the Lark: It seems like Cadence of Hyrule should be more popular than it is. Are people put off by the rhythm aspect? Or the randomly-generated maps?
Jul 24, 2020 14:01:59 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ Might warrant its own thread, but I think mixing rhythm and other genres usually resuls in gameplay too difficult for many. I can't handle it well either, judging from my scores in Dedede's Drum Dash.

nocturnal YL: ↑ For me personally, it simply hasn't been considered. It's a download-only game (until now) from a series I'm unfamiliar with and didn't feel like trying out.
Jul 24, 2020 23:02:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Ironically, I did create a thread for Cadence of Hyrule, but then deleted it thinking there wouldn't be any discussion on it. Maybe I'll go ahead and make a new one.

Shrikeswind: Something to bear in mind about the shoutbox if you’re not already aware: It doesn’t show up on the mobile version of the forums. This shouldn’t be a major problem, but it can make it difficult to get into discussions for mobile visitors.
Jul 26, 2020 1:40:18 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Also the more obvious character limit issues, and the format not really being conducive to longer-term discussion. It’s useful but limited; threads definitely still have their place.

Shrikeswind: (Honestly, Proboards mobile is pretty bad in general, but...)

Nester the Lark: Not sure if this works on all devices, but you can force the desktop version of the forum by scrolling all the way to the bottom and clicking the "Desktop" link at the lower right.

Shrikeswind: I’m aware. I’m typing this from my phone. I’m just pointing out that, for people who aren’t aware or who may be casually checking in on their phone, the shoutbox won’t be visible on

Shrikeswind: Is there a Discord for NinDB, by the way? It’s very popular with them there young’ns these days, so it might help activity.
Jul 26, 2020 22:07:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: There is no NinDB Discord. There was a brief discussion of it a few years ago, but nothing ultimately came of it. I rarely use Discord, myself.
Jul 27, 2020 8:58:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Hm. Seems like it might be a good idea if activity picks up. Not to be a pessimist but I do have my doubts that'll happen though.

Shrikeswind: Okay not a Nintendo topic but I kinda need to talk about this because I just learned it and it's a thing so bleh.

Shrikeswind: You remember Disney's Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? So apparently, 5 year old me was incapable of discerning male and female in non-humans, because *apparently* there's a female gargoyle, and the goat's a boy.
