I know this isn't Rain, but I hope you don't mind just indulging me here while I share some fanart. ^_^

***

Top Row: Daisy, Shulk, Piranha Plant
Middle: Jigglypuff, Zero Suit Samus, Wii Fit Trainer, Isabelle
Bottom: Robin, Ness, Lucina, Corrin, Richter

So, if I can confess: sometime around the Nintendo Direct in August, I had the idea that I wanted to draw every single character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. There's a really long story why that project was never completed, involving me doing something really stupid and saving, destroying months of work. I don't really wanna reopen old wounds for myself, but long story short is that original idea probably isn't happening now. Certainly not any time soon.

But as a Smash fan who could not be more excited for this game, I still wanted to have something to draw to show my love and hype for it. And I was like, "okay, I'll draw my main and a couple of my secondaries." I'd been saving a lot of my favorites for last with the original poster project, so the really good thing was that I wouldn't even have to redraw much. It'd be like a separate little continuation.

So I drew my main Lucina, alongside Robin and Corrin and Jigglypuff (who I'd consider all my next best), and figured I'd wrap this up with five characters. Except I was really torn about my next best between Ness, ZS Samus, and Wii Fit Trainer. And I'm like, "whatever, I guess I can just add them all".

But then I'm looking at it thinking it looks more like Smash 4 fanart. "I should include a favorite newcomer", I thought. So I added Richter. "Oh, but how can I leave out Isabelle and Piranha Plant? And I'm looking forward to Daisy. And I really like playing Shulk, but I suck with managing the Monado Arts, so maybe I'll like him even more with his changes this time around." And I just kept drawing. XD

Eventually, I reached this point and was like, "okay, this is twelve characters. I have to stop!" So even though it's killing me that I somehow left out Link and Zelda and Pokemon Trainer and countless others, I am calling this complete for now. We're gonna go ahead and call these my personal top twelve characters in Smash Ultimate, and I'm going to just have to be satisfied with that for now. XD

Really, though. I'm excited for everyone. And I mean EVERYONE! Before E3 this year, my biggest character hopeful going into the new Smash game was less a brand new fighter, and more "as few cuts as possible". I felt like my favorites were for the most part very expendable (Lucina's just an echo of a character more historically significant to her series, Corrin is largely hated by a lot of the community, Wii Fit isn't really a thing anymore, etc), and I was worried about losing them. So "Everyone is here" has been a really big deal to me. And that's why I'll probably go back and draw everyone eventually. There's just something so meaningful to me, as a passionate lifelong fan of video games, about seeing all these characters coming together. And I guess I just really wanna draw that.

Maybe I'll come back to this when the DLC characters are all known. ^_^

Anyway, Smash Ultimate is less than 24 hours aways! Anyone else as crazy hype as I am? Who are the most exciting characters for you (new or returning)? What do you plan to do first? Let's talk Smash! XD

And I promise this game will not interfere with tomorrow's page.

Nintendo choose well with their decision of premiering the game during the Winter Holidays. People are going to fight a lot this month.
