Blog News: Removal of Krystal and Lyn


Hey everyone, I hope everyone has been enjoying the updates!  I have been enjoying putting this project together, doing the research, and find excitement in speculating the new series.

With that aside, I decided to axe two characters that I felt wouldn’t make it into the game, make way for more important characters, and to trim the roster a bit.  I have decided to axe the following charatcers:

Krystal and Lyn.

The decision came very hard and, after some soul searching, I decided it was best to remove them from the roster in order to add characters that I felt were more deserving of a spot.  If you have any questions or comments, please let me know!

 

Thank you

Stage: Aeropolis


Aeropolis from F-zero GX/AX.

Name: Aeropolis

Universe: F-Zero

Debut: F-Zero GX/AX

Size: Large

Obstacle Level: 2 (out of 3)

Type: Moving Platform

Availability: Starter

Aeropolis appears from F-Zero GX/AX. It is a massive racing track located in a giant computer. The skyscrapers even repair themselves when needed to control the ever increasing population.


Appearance

The stage itself is fought on one long platform with a higher shorter platform above it. It hovers there and will adjust it’s height; lowering itself or going higher above the platform.

A signal was go from red, yellow, and then to green. The stage that rockets off into the track. Underneath the stage, F-Zero racers will race under the platform. Occasionally, they will knock the stage causing it to bump up and causing players to knockup. The track is very fast but it doesn’t affect gameplay. On occasion, the cars will hit a speed boost, causing them to rocket forward at lightning fast speeds. The stage does as well. At one point in the track, the stage disappears throwing opponents into the air. Down below in the background, the race track quickly approaches. Before the players hit the race track though, the platforms reappear allowing players to jump back on to continue brawling. While falling, opponents can still attack but they can’t jump. Important to note, doing an attack that has a helpless falling state (Mario’s Up B for example), will cause the player to be permanently in their helpless falling state until they reach the bottom.. The stage follows the circuit as it loops around.


Obstacles and Hazards

This stage is pretty straight forward in terms of design and hazards. Racers will sometimes bump the bottom platform. It doesn’t do any damage but it causes a high vertical knock back at higher percentages. Near the end, when the stage drops off, make sure not to use a move that renders your character in a helpless falling state because the character will be locked into that animation unless attacked or hit. Unless you miss the platform, it is very easy to land back on.

My Thoughts

I had a hard time to come up with a F-Zero stage idea since Mute City, Deep Blue, and Aero Five were all taken so I looked towards GX/AX for ideas. I felt this was a interesting enough stage to represent the F-Zero series as well as the GX/AX games.


Chances of Being in SSB4

50% – I feel this or one of the other iconic tracks in F-Zero GX/AX will make an appearance in SSB4. As I was researching through which ones I think have a shot, I felt this one could be in the next game as the F-Zero stage rep.

Boss: Ashnard


King Ashnard from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

Name: King Ashnard

Universe: Fire Emblem

Debut:

Boss Type: Flying, Berserk

Element Alignment: Fire, Dark, Flying

Chapter: ?

– Boss Sphere –

Rarity: Common

Type: Attack

Duration: 25 seconds

King Ashnard is the Mad King of Daen who tricked his father onto signing a blood pact and then assassinating him to gain the throne. However, he was defeated and killed by Ike and his comrades. After his death, the kingdom of Daen was left without a ruler.


The Galactic Usurper

Ashnard is encountered in The Galactic Usurper Story Mode. He is a Boss and is affiliated with the evil presence that is in the mechanical floating island.

He attacks using his black dragon and attacks with his might sword, Gurgurant. He will fly over the level while spouting out flames and beating the air with his wings to damage players. On occasion, he will swoop down to strike players with a quick blitz attack. Once his health is reduced, he will dismount from his mount and begin attacking with his sword. He strikes heavy but very slow; allowing to be attacked by players. After 15 seconds, he will hop back onto his dragon.


Boss Sphere

Ashnard is unlocked by completing The Galactic Usurper story mode and then locking him during a Boss Battle with a empty Boss Sphere.

When summoned, Ashnard descends onto the stage in a fiery wrath. When he lands, a fire blast shoots out damaging anyone in range with 13% fire damage with a high knock back. He then sends “Pitiful insects! Die!” and laughs manically.

He then takes to the air with his dragon and the dragon will start to spew out fireballs at opponents. Each fireball does 20% fire damage and has a decent knock back. The dragon then begins to beat it’s wings fast which pushes opponents slowly across the stage but does no damage.

After 15 seconds past, Ashnard jumps down from the dragon and begins striking opponents with his large sword. Each strikes does 18% damage. They are slow strikes but they have extremely high knock back potential and can KO at high percentages. While Ashnard is attacking with his sword, the dragon overhead will continue to beat his wings to hinder opponents movements.

After 25 seconds past, Ashnard slams his sword into the ground and kneels saying “But how?!”. His black dragon roars in pain and crashes to the ground but does no further damage to opponents.


My Thoughts

I envisioned Boss Spheres as being the ultimate assist item in terms of power and speed. King Ashnard became the first Boss Sphere I designed. He originally was planned to be a playable character as a Fire Emblem villain but I scrapped the idea since he wasn’t exactly iconic in the series and the Black Knight would had been a better choice (but Nightmare filled out the role as a heavily armored swordsman). So I decided to put King Ashnard as a boss and a Boss Sphere. I mean, seriously, a Black Dragon riding lunatic is pretty epic.

Boss Spheres


In Super Smash Bros., Poké Balls were introduced. In Super Smash Bro. Brawl, Assist Trophies were first introduced. Now cones a new sort of assist that borders on ultimate power.

Previously, I updated with Djinn and that help players summon supernatural beings. Now, here is a new type of summons/assist:


Boss Spheres

Boss Spheres are the rarest and most powerful form of assist. It basically summons a boss found in The Galactic Usurper and calls them forth to fight the opponents.  There are a number of requirements to unlock them though so these are (most likely), the last things you will unlock.


Requirements

However, in order to bring a boss into battle, certain requirements must be met:

1) Encounter the boss in The Galactic Usurper Story Mode and win.

2) Complete the Story Mode on any difficulty.

3) Completing the Story Mode unlocks Boss Battle mode.

4) At some point during the fight, a empty Boss Sphere will appear. Use it to capture the “soul” if the boss. This is done by throwing it at the boss. You must defeat the boss in order to get the sphere at the end of Boss Mode.

5) Finish Boss Battle Mode with no continues.

This will unlock that Boss Sphere to be used in game play.


Mechanics

When you obtain a Boss Sphere in Vs mode, a random boss will appear from it. Simply grab it to release the boss that’s inside. It will then fight on your behalf; even if they themselves are evil.  They are unable to be damaged by opponents and do not stagger.  Most Bosses can KO an opponent; even at lower percentages by causing wide spread damage.

Unlocking a Boss Sphere will also reward the player with a trophy of that boss so, in fact, you get two rewards in one.


List of Boss Spheres

List of Boss Spheres (to be expanded in the future):

  • King Ashnard

My Thoughts

I liked the Sub-Space Emissary enemies but wanted to take a different direction in my storyline. Thus I decided on a technorganic hybrid for enemies instead of fully mechanical. That is why most of my enemy designs contains animalistic properties.
