I hate to bump this, but this has been bouncing around in my head and I don't know how to classify it if not a nitpick.

I really do appreciate the work that goes into each character resprite, and I think they do a great job replicating the official Smash style, but the new sprites have a tendency to look really wooden and devoid of emotion. I get that its an unfortunate effect of doing the sprites 1:1 with the Smash equivalents, because a lot of the nuance in the 3d faces gets lost at such a low pixel density, but I do miss how the old sprites could pack so much personality in them.



Don't get me wrong, the new sprites are a definite improvement. I just miss how expressive sprites could be back in the earlier demos.

Anyways, that's my nitpick. Sorry for bump.


So what you're trying to say: somehow, recolored brawlified sprites somehow convey more emotion than more modern sprites that follow a more grounded artstyle?
I don't know about you, but there was a period where every character put on the same copied-and-pasted facial expression for literally every action they've done other than expressing pain. When a character gets a resprite, it's for a pretty good reason.

Yes, but those brawlified sprites understood for the most part that a different pixel density would require embellishment or stylization. A lot of the resprites suffer from their own issue of every redrawn face looking equally dead as a result of chasing a 3d aesthetic in a 2d sprite, while the earlier ones could convey so much more with less.

I don't see anything conveyed in your examples, both that old Ness and Yoshi look completely empty and without any personality at all.

Goku's aura on his down taunt (right) is still pixelly and "sprite-y" unlike his down-b aura (left)

Ness hitting the ground during PK Thunder 2 makes him bounce off, but he doesn't do that when hitting a wall or under the arena



EDIT:
I just realized there's neither an Event or Classic Mode level where you fight several Kirbys (Multi-Man style except they can use NeutralB) with random copy abilities, and it bothers me a little bit

I'm a "Jack of All Trades", perhaps going for "Master of Many", I'll definitely try to learn all that I can with these characters.
I'm just waiting for 1.2 so i can remake this signature

I like rayman's victory theme and all, but it doesn't really match the other victory themes.
it sounds less "grand" like the other victory themes.

This is really just a nitpick with Smash in general, but I wish victory themes were unique to characters and not just to series. I know it's more work since there's a lot of characters, but it would still be pretty cool. Even if it's still the same tune but altered differently so it reflects the character more.
