    Most likely a mix. If Microsoft and Nintendo can work out a deal for Banjo and Kazooie to appear as DLC, it would be amazing.

    There’s some speculation that one of the missing Assist Trophy characters might become a DLC character.

    Not counting the three that are already Fighters:
    1. Barbara
    2. Elec Man
    3. Excitebikes
    4. Helirin
    5. Infantry and Tanks
    6. Jill
    7. Kat & Ana
    8. Lakitu and Spinies
    9. Magnus
    10. Mr. Resetti
    11. Ray MK III
    12. Saki Amamiya
    13. Tingle
    I don't really see any of these becoming DLC playables. Hell, some of them didn't even make it out of Brawl. All of the best possible playables have already been confirmed as ATs.

    Could a tagteam mode theoretically work in Smash?

    Uh... in what way? The game already has a Team Battle feature and now Squad Strike.

    Do you mean changing characters mid-stock? Because yeah, it theoretically could, but it would be fairly ridiculous and abusable. If you want to do something like that, play Pokemon Trainer, since that one is designed around changing characters mid-stock, in a way that's balanced.

    So with the secret taunt Fox can do in his stages, are there any new conversations you can spawn in Smash Ultimate?

    I'm a tad confused regarding this Joker fellow, is he apparently one of the stronger protagonists in the game or a anti-hero of sorts?

    It depends on your choices on Persona 5. But yes, you could say he is an anti-hero. His group, the Phantom Thieves, focus on changing the hearts of criminals, encouraging them to confess their crimes by defeating a physical manifestation of their subconscious in a mysterious realm known as the Metaverse. And let's not forget about his Persona and his gun.

    There's brand new Palutena's Guidances, for several characters. The Star Fox convos and Snake Codecs all return from past games, but there's no new ones.

    That is a funny comic but weren't cd's only in Brawl? Mewtwo wasn't in Brawl unless you count project M. Still funny though.

    Did that, too. I need to play more NG+ to finish off the Skill Tree.

    Professional voice actor. He's the voice of the Smash announcer (edit: also Master & Crazy Hand too), who has basically become a character in his own right. I love him hamming it up as THE ANNOUNCER~ like in that video I was replying to.

    Incidentally, he's also the English dub voice of Joker, so once that DLC comes out, the prophecy of "playable Announcer" will have been fulfilled in spirit.

    Two things:
    1. How often does the ingame store refresh its inventory.
    2. Looks like we may be getting
    Dragon Quest representation
    with one of the upcoming DLC fighters.

    the ingame store only changes or restocks one item every few minutes 3 maybe but if you actually play the game it will change faster.
    That is at least my experience with it.

    Every once in a while, based on how much you're playing. If I leave any open spots in there after buying stuff, they'll usually get filled after a few Smash matches, or one single Classic Mode run. I also think they'll just refresh in general every 24 hours.

    I actually have all the unlockable songs now, and I'm running low on Mii Fighter gear to buy, as the shop is basically showing me the exact same lineup of hats that I haven't got yet.

    Is there overlap between the songs you can unlock in the other modes and the ones you buy in the shop?

    the songs in the store can be unlocked normally, the only songs you can't buy are the ones you get from the achievements
    I bought all of them and all of the mii cosmetic items.

    Best to take the leaks with a grain of salt, there's already too many sword users already, so they might pick a different type of specialist. Like Geno.

    Playing classic without using a ticket usually gets me one. It might be random or it could be not using a continue or just the difficulty I end on.

    There's a handful of songs in the Challenge board, and some in chests in Adventure Mode. These have to be unlocked there. Otherwise, the ones that show up in the Shop also can drop as a random reward when you clear Classic Mode. That's the only overlap.

    Some Challenges give them (but not much and I think they're super hard), otherwise they're bought in the shop for, uh, a ton of gold. I think they can also be random prize drops, but you probably have to finish Classic on a really high intensity.

    Ah Okay, cool. I've been wondering who the voice actor for the announcer was. I was almost thought it was Allmight from MHA.

    Nope, that'd be Christopher Sabat, aka Vegeta & Piccolo. ;3 He is not in Smash, sadly, but Sean Schemmel (Lucario) is.

    Debating whether I should take the Spirits route or the Combat route for leveling since I finally have an amiibo.

    Both will work, but actually putting your amiibo into battles is how you actually train it and have it learn stuff. Spirits and snacks and such will level it up and grant it abilities, but otherwise it still needs active fight experience.

    Do you have any suggestions on which spirits I should focus on giving to it? I’m using the Bowser Jr one.

    Personally I wouldn't give spirits, they only level up from stats and get to a point were they aren't doing cool stuff but just 2 shotting everyone

    No, I don't, but really, I wouldn't bother giving it any spirits. Maybe if you have a bunch of extra copies of certain support spirits and you wanna give their effects to the amiibo? I'm not entirely sure how the changes work in this game. Hell, I never bothered with the amiibo system in Smash 4 either.

    Same with the snacks, and just focus on leveling through combat for now?
