The pros of adding Bayonetta to Super Smash Bros. 4 roster

Bubblews: "Although the official roster is still not yet known for Super Smash Bros. 4, it is never too early to speculate. One of the most obvious choices that Nintendo should consider adding to the roster is Bayonetta." (3DS, Super Smash Bros. 4, Wii U)

it would be a smart move to put bayonetta in smash brothers in order to help market bayonetta 2
bayonetta  +   1014d ago
agreed =o

Zero suit samus and Bayonetta as a team

Kamiya Platinum Games Director want her in.
So she has a high chance since Sakurai did go to Platinum Games like year and half ago.

I am liking the idea but Bayonetta is way too strong for this game and will over power all the Smash characters.

I am not sure how they will fit her in with out her being too powerful.

Edit: Yeah I understand that they have to balance her but what makes Boyoneta awesome is the fact that she posesses immense superhuman strength and endurance, shown when she was able to kick a building and send it flying like it weighed nothing, send a crashing satellite flying with one hit, throwing around opponents as big as Fortitudo (then proceeding to rip off one of his dragon heads), being hit head-on by a building and only staggering back slightly, and being shot with a bullet at point-blank range and only reacting as if it slightly stung.

She also has superhuman speed and agility, performing somersaults, backfilps, etc; with ease.

She can also use Witch Time, Witch Walk (the ability to walk on surfaces during full moons), Wicked Weaves, Torture Attacks and Beast Within (the ability to change into animals; a panther for speed, a bird for temporary flight and bats to avoid attacks).

Boyonetta would not be Boyonetta without any of those things :( so I dont see how they can balance her out.

I really don't understand your reasoning on this it's smash bros it needs balance and that is what they will do.
animegamingnerd  +   1014d ago
its call balancing like not making her attacks so strong
Max-Zorin  +   1014d ago
Don't worry. Only Capcom don't know what balance is.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   1013d ago
Ever wonder who "The Hand" was in Smash Brothers.
You make a good point but have you seen "Injustice"?
Or "Mavel vs Capcom"?
Superman, the Hulk, and Galactus are in these games and people can beat them solo.

Not exactly true to hype.

Besides, Smash Bros. is not about real specs it is about a little Kid playing with Toys versions of his favorite Nintendo Characters (see originals).

Ever wonder who "The Hand" was?
truechainz  +   1013d ago
bayonetta would not be the first strong character in smash, they will balance her just fine. By that logic Mewtwo's immense psychic power could essentially keep any moves from hitting him, and his telekenisis could fling characters from any point on the stage.
Dj7FairyTail  +   1012d ago
Uh Ganondorf can only be defeated by the Master Sword.

Samus's Power Bomb is like more powerful a than a nuclear bomb.
3-4-5  +   1014d ago
Not justified or deserving.

One game and all of the sudden you get to be in Smash brothers ? I don't think so.

Please be realistic. There are so many more deserving characters that actually matter in gaming who more people know about and have actually had a greater impact on gaming.

Bayonetta is one of those somewhat generic games that happen to dominate the market this gen.
TruthbeTold  +   1014d ago
I agree, but would say that it didn't dominate the market, so much as the concept dominated the mindshare of many gamers.
ChickeyCantor  +   1013d ago
It's not the "one game" part. It's the fact Nintendo is funding the second game. So what better way to promote it than in a smash bros game?

"Bayonetta is one of those somewhat generic games that happen to dominate the market this gen."

Generic? It pretty much innovated on the hack and slash genre. It's just too bad no one took a minute to actually play the game.

The Ice Climbers and Ness were each in just one game.
ABizzel1  +   1014d ago
Isn't Bayonetta 2 coming out this year, and SSB is still TBA, most likely 2014.
PopRocks359  +   1014d ago
That would entice older gamers, though I wonder if they can make her fit in the universe... seeing Bayonetta duke it out with Kirby, Pikachu or Mr. Game and Watch would be weird as hell.

There's also the red leader of the Wonderful 101 team. Just throwin' that out there.
PSNintyGamer  +   1014d ago
Seeing snake duke it out with mario was weird
PopRocks359  +   1014d ago
Seeing Snake duke it out with Bomberman and Optimus Prime was weird too. I think Snake's used to it.
_QQ_  +   1014d ago
Yeah but snake is as iconic as sonic and almost as much as Mario.I'm going to buy and probably love Bayonetta2 but SSBB isn't meant to be a marketing game like Playstation All Stars. I would like to see megaman however, and if the wonderful 101franchise stays nintendo exclusive, maybe have the lead guy be in the next SSB.Maybe it will be the next Recognized N franchise.

Snookies12  +   1014d ago
Entice older gamers? I think Game & Watch, Ness, Kirby, etc. would do a much better job than her. Unless you mean because she's in a mature game. Which generally tend to entice younger players just because it's mature lol. (I didn't disagree with you by the way.) :]

Either way though, I'm really looking forward to Smash 4!
PopRocks359  +   1014d ago
My point was more along your latter explanation, yes. It was because she's in a mature game so I figured older gamers would want to play as her. Maybe fourteen year old boys too. I suppose young adults would have been a better word?

"Either way though, I'm really looking forward to Smash 4!"

I concur.
Jek_Porkins  +   1014d ago
I never even thought of that, but it makes natural sense now, maybe we'll see something on this in the future? Sounds awesome to me.
My_Name_BTW_Is_Dante  +   1014d ago
The pro would be me saving money by not buying it. Bayonetta is garbage as is the character. I wouldn't even bother playing the next Smash if they added her. I expect a good roster, not a mediocre one. If I wanted to play a brawler with a crap roster then I'd play Playstation All-Stars.
kirbyu  +   1014d ago
Really? 1 character you don't like would throw you off.
animegamingnerd  +   1014d ago | Well said
says bayonetta is a garbage character

The pros of adding Bayonetta to Super Smash Bros. 4 roster
So Zero Suit Samus can have an equally hot friend.
kirbyu  +   1014d ago
What about the cons?
SAYGUH  +   1014d ago
Well not a bad idea since Platinum Games are supportive of the Nintendo brand, furthermore down the road it should apply to others who show equal or greater support
socks  +   1014d ago
You know what would help Smash4? Making it play like Smash2.
TuxedoMoon  +   1014d ago
Smash bros NEEDS MORE FEMALE CHARACTERS!

Brawl DID NOT have any new female characters at all.

"Zero suit Samus is new!"

No she isn't. She's a different form of an already existing character, much like Zelda and Sheik.

Thought I had to make that point clear. IMO, Bayonetta and a slew of other female characters NEEDS to be added to the smash bros. roster. Why? Because Nintendo does have a huge roster of female characters to use. Lyndis, Krystal (Starfox), Mia (Golden sun), Milky way (Custom Robo), Rola (Metal Combat: Falcon's Revenge) Fiora and Sharla (Xenoblade), and lots more!

Bayonetta would be an amazing addition, but I don't want her to be the only female addition to the roster. Replace Wolf with Krystal. Her staff fighting style is way more diverse than having Akuma Wolf (Fox, Flaco, and Wolf = Ryu, Ken, Akuma).

3rd party character wise, I'd really like to see Megaman and Kos-mos (Xenosaga). Why Kos-mos? I think Xenosaga is half owned by Nintendo and Namco. When Monolith soft went to Nintendo, some issues came up with the use of Xenosaga characters. In the cross over games like Project-X-Zone, Kos-mos is a usable character. Project-X-Zone is on a Nintendo console made in collaboration with Namco and Monolith soft in some way. Kos-mos was also in Super Robot wars: OG Saga- Endless frontier, which was also on a nintendo console. So I'm guessing that Kos-mos is practically owned by Nintendo since those games that have her were only on nintendo consoles. I might be missing something, but that's my proof to have her in the game.

As for megaman, he's a no brainer. Nintendo shouldn't just add megaman to the roster, but buy the rights from Capcom. Capcom has screwed up terribly these past few years, especially with megaman. They cancelled 4 games (Megaman legends 3, Megaman online, Megaman universe, and Megaman FPS)! I just know Capcom will beg Nintendo to have Ryu in Smash. Screw Ryu! He's in enough cross-overs! Megaman is a REAL retro character, not Ryu.

I'll just stop there before I rant more. Smash bros needs more females and they NEED to add megaman on the roster.
arbitor365  +   1014d ago
they could have stuff from no more heroes or mad world too. but i dont think nintendo wants to put rated M games in smash bros
animegamingnerd  +   1014d ago
then why is snake in brawl?
arbitor365  +   1013d ago
technically the last time snake appeared on a nintendo console was the 2 NES games. which were before the rating system.
BlackWolf  +   1013d ago
"technically the last time snake appeared on a nintendo console was the 2 NES games. which were before the rating system."

Are you forgetting The Twin Snakes (2004)?
jcnba28  +   1013d ago
Snake was on the Gamecube - MGS The Twin Snakes.
ZeekQuattro  +   1014d ago
I'd much rather have Mega Man in the next Smash Brothers. He could use the work. Capcom canceled his last 3 games. lol
RTheRebel  +   1014d ago
Rule 34
Bayonetta And Samus
lol
Kevlar009  +   1014d ago
What's been stopping them?
o-Sunny-o  +   1013d ago
I would like to fight against her I don't like Bayonetta.
