It's that time again, Krystal fans. Time to promote Krystal for inclusion in future Smash and Star Fox titles. We aren't the only ones who want to see Krystal in Smash, but there could definitely be more of us. Jordan Sweeto, a huge Krystal fan and the creator of #teamKRYSTAL, has recently begun promoting Krystal again. He has a plan to get her recognized based what he learned from other successful fan movements.
I finally managed to get into contact with JordanSweeto. He explained his strategy to use social media to get Nintendo to recognize Krystal's massive fan following and our desire to see the lovely blue vixen take part in the next Smash Bros. and Star Fox games.
I know some of you have given up on the idea of seeing Krystal in Smash, and while I understand that, I don't think there's any harm in drumming up support for our favorite character. Whether or not she makes it into Smash Bros, having Nintendo be aware of our long-time devotion to Krystal can only mean good things in other upcoming games.
Interested in helping with this campaign? Good! Here's Jordan's multi-step plan:
- Subscribe to the #teamKRYSTAL Youtube Support Account.
- Look through the Krystal support playlist. These videos are mostly official Nintendo videos or popular gaming videos directly or indirectly related to Krystal.
- In any (or all) videos in the playlist, add a comment showing your support for Krystal. Give reasons why you want to see Krystal in Smash and other future Star Fox games. Make sure to be positive and avoid spammy comments.
- Go through the existing comments looking for other positive Krystal-related comments. Like/upvote them if you agree with them so they will show up as Top Comments. This increases the likelihood of Nintendo and other fans seeing them.
- Regularly check for new videos in the playlist to comment on. Subscribing can help with this.
- Keep adding comments and looking for new videos as we grow support for Krystal. Support begets more support, so keep it up!
IMPORTANT: As you are following these steps, there are two things to keep in the forefront of your mind:
- Do not get into an internet fight! Other commenters will almost certainly try to be negative, derail the discussion, distract you, or argue against Krystal. Don't respond in kind. It will only make you look bad and work against the goal. If someone speaks negatively, stay positive. If someone is trolling, ignore them. This isn't about winning or losing, this is about promoting Krystal.
- DO. NOT. SPAM. Period, exclamation point. If there is one thing worse than trolls, it's spammers. Don't give anyone a reason to hate you. Try to make every comment relevant and unique.
Good luck out there! Remember, Sakurai knows about Krystal and thinks she would be a unique character. It's not an impossible goal, they simply need to decide to put her in Smash and the rest will fall into place.
