New Krystal in Smash Campaign
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.

Showing support is never a waste of time. It’s better than doing nothing and complaining afterwards.
There are actually two polls going on right now. The first was created by Smashified. They’d like to make T-Shirts for their smashified characters. Guess what, Krystal is LEADING! As soon as this poll was mentioned in Sweeto’s Smashboards thread her numbers went up rapidly. Round 1 has been going on for quite some time now. If you haven’t voted already, do it! You should also check Smashified’s twitter account, so that you know when Round 2 starts. Here’s the poll: https://strawpoll.com/g4ag7ds
The second poll is about Smash Bros. itself. Nintendo Life wants to know who you’d like to see in a possible Smash for the Switch. VOTE!: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/05/poll_who_would_you_like_to_see_in_super_smash_bros_for_nintendo_switch
This poll was also mentioned in Sweeto’s Smashboards thread, so who knows. Maybe it will help Krystal with this one as well.
I’ll leave the campaining to you this time I lost all hope with smash. smash is dead to me.
I don’t know about the campaigning, but I do remember someone making a moveset idea for Krystal.
It’s good to see some support for Krystal going on. I hope this at least gets Krystal through the door to smash or upcoming star fox games.
My plans for promoting Krystal has come to an end as I’ve lost a lot of data in a recent computer crash. It will be a long time to get that data back. But as of right now. I just don’t have the time.
I hope all things go well and that we see Krystal again.
I’ll pop in from time to time to check up on news updates and other interesting things Mr. K has in store.
You have my support there and I will always support Krystal no matter what.
i do want to see krystal in it, but the more and more i think, other character have better chance in it. if nintendo doesn’t go for the recent ability, then i see her with the staff and more chance to get in. i don’t know if sakurai going to be involve, i remember some site say he said smash 4 (wii u and 3ds) was his last one. i would be glad if nintendo hired the project m team for this version.
looks like sweeto took my advice and messaged you guys, he was already interested in getting support from here and thought you guys were interested so I dunno what he was doing. also lol @Mr Brownstone I linked both of those. It’s funny how fast she shot up on those, You should join the discussion on Smashboards, she has the highest views but daisy has still double our replies. https://smashboards.com/threads/team-star-fox-call-in-krystal-for-smash.446400
Honestly we’re a bit late to the party but regardless of what’s announced for the most part attention for her is very necessary, We should also all make Twitter accounts to create Krystal for smash buzz, Reggie mentioned information flow from twitter and seems to use it as a source for what people what, Sweeto is the ace for that but if we increase the numbers, that includes everyone who actually cares about Krystal, Will be able to increase the buzz for her. We’ll see what happens with the spotlight which is very promising atm, so soon enough, also @Mr Krystal you should open up the chat soon lol
