Sephiroth has been in Smash for like 34 seconds, and already, he has nearly got both Mario and Princess Zelda killed. This is wildly irresponsible!

Considering we’re only a year removed from Smash killing Luigi (Rest In Peace), you would think Nintendo would have been more selective with their roster selections going forwards.

But nope, here they go inviting one of the most ruthless villains in video game history into the series, a guy with a huge fucking sword and a proven track record of murdering beloved star characters.

I mean, look at this! This nearly went very badly!

Very sloppy, Nintendo. Please vet your Smash roster updates more carefully going forwards.


    • If you don’t like Final Fantasy’s Sephiroth been added as our 8th DLC for Smash Alex Walker then fuck you.
      As for me I’m fucking happy that we got Sephiroth as our 8th DLC for Smash.
      I hope the 9th DLC for Smash will be Crash Bandicoot since Crash Bandicoot 4 It’s About Time never won this year’s game awards for best family game since the best family game award was awarded to Animal Crossing New Horizons.
      Eat your heart out Activision Toys For Bob and Beenox as I’ll be waiting next year until you guys port Crash Bandicoot 4 It’s About Time on to the Nintendo Switch which is definitely likely to come to Nintendo Switch next year.
