The Witcher, which was already an extremely well-received video game series with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt viewed by many as one of the greatest games of this decade, has again exploded with popularity thanks to the recent Netflix adaptation starring Henry Cavill as Geralt. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt made its way onto the Nintendo Switch in 2019 and enjoyed a positive reception on the console as a faithful port which sold strongly for a 4 year old game, meaning he wouldn't feel too out of place in the ever-expansive Smash roster which has opened itself well and truly up to third party franchises of late.

Based on the whimsical and fantastical, although equally gruesome books by Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher has already crossed over in the video game-sphere before with SoulCalibur and Monster Hunter the two most notable instances.

Geralt himself offers exciting moveset potential with his steel and silver swords (yes, he's a swordsman sorry), his signs such as Igni (fire), Axii (mind control), Aard (telekinetic blast), Yrden (magic trap) and Quen (shield), a crossbow and Witcher potions to name a few options.

So you know what?
I'm climbing aboard The Witcher Train and I'm hoping for Geralt of Rivia as #5.

Not originally a game character, unfortunately. He would've been great, too.

I'm sold on it being Dante, but I think this would be a great alternative. I haven't played the Witcher 3, or the series, but I think I'd be interesting in trying out the main character in Smash.

If it's Dante, I'll buy it. If it's a different character, I'll base my decision on Sakurai's awesome presentation, but I like the idea of it not being Dante just as much as I like it possibly being Dante.

witcher is overhyped
my dog can write better stories
and you know what
the writer of the books is an a******
he hates the games but praises the series
the series is based on the games more than the book as evident by the personalities of the characters being way different than in the books
and he loves the series
his reason for hating the games was the alteration of characters
he hates games so he doesn't deserve his self insert into mythology world to be in any game tbh
Tonight we hunt!

Well, Geralt is already in Soul Calibur and Monster Hunter and it's awesome in both games lol

>awesome in monster hunter
>literally one quest with the tree spirit and then gives you magic
>magic for a world without magic
tfw even the final fantasy xiv giant kut kulu with the crystal and behemoth make more sense than that
and his armor is so ugly like ew even low rank alloy armors are better looking

Is this a confirmed caveat or is it just a made-up board rule?

Many new precedents have been set for Ultimate so far.
