Ten Characters that Could Be in the Next Super Smash Bros

The next Super Smash Bros game is over the horizon for Nintendo fans who own a Wii U and 3DS system. Things are a little bit different this time since Nintendo is co-developing the game with Namco Bandai in hopes of bringing a fresh new experience to fans of the series. Yet a hot topic of debate is the cast of characters that will make it into Masahiro Sakurai’s next installment into the Nintendo brawler. While many gamers may have tons of dream matches they would love to see, reality may have a different outcome on things for Nintendo’s all-star brawler. Check out our list of ten characters that have a shot at making the cut into the next Super Smash Bros game for Wii U and 3DS. (3DS, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Brothers 4, Wii U)

Nice list, I would be fine with any and all of these, especially Mega Man. The Blue Bomber needs to come home!

I agree Megaman would be huge. I personally would like Midna from Twilight Princess to make the roster but I know that's highly unlikely.
WiiUsauce  +   533d ago
Midna and Wolf Link would be AWESOME!!
WiiUsauce  +   533d ago
Characters I expect to see in Smash for Wii U:
Bayonetta
Shulk (Xenoblade Chronicles)
Isa Jo and Kashi (Sin and Punishment: Star Successor)
Isaac (Golden Sun)
Aeron (Pandora's Tower)
Chrom (Fire Emblem Awakening)
Dillon (Rolling Western)
Little Mac (Punch Out!)
Ryu Hayabusa (maybe, Nintendo did publish Razor's Edge)

Surprised nobody has said N from Pokemon, he's been a huge hit with PKMN B+W+2 He would make as a great hand to hand fighter that doesn't actually have to fight with pokemon (since he's all about pokemon peace), and yeah Chrom was a good suggestion.

Capcom has already proven time and time again that they have no interest in making anymore good Mega Man games. Having him on this roster would be HUGE but I'm not going to get my hopes up about that.
Romudeth  +   533d ago
Very cool list. Just the thought of having Pac-Man, Mega Man and Rayman in one game destroys my mind.
Relientk77  +   533d ago
Characters who should be in the game, in my opinion:

Megaman
Skull Kid
Ridley
Midna
Ghirahim
Isaac
Shulk
Palutena
Dillion (Dillon's Rolling Western)
WeAreLegion  +   533d ago
Good list!
WeAreLegion  +   533d ago
I'd love to see King K. Rool in the game, honestly. He would be a tank, like Bowser or Ganon.

Also, I want Conker. :/ I know they don't have the rights, but I still want him in a game.
WeAreLegion  +   533d ago
I'm going to get some hate for this, but I need the next Super Smash Bros. to take it up a notch if I'm going to buy it. I enjoy the tighter mechanics and higher move set of PSASBR so much that it's hard to play Brawl or Melee, anymore. :/

Luckily, the guys behind this new Smash Bros. are fighting game veterans, like the people who worked on PSASBR. So, I have tons of hope for this one!
Mykky  +   533d ago
No no no. Let SSB be SSB and PSAS be PSAS. Even though I like PSAS a lot and play it almost everyday I don't think it is close to being as good as SSB is.
DivineAssault  +   533d ago
They need some 3rd party characters..
MonopolyRSV  +   533d ago
Smash Bros died after melee. No amount of new characters can make up for the slower watered down gameplay.
PopRocks359  +   533d ago
Except for Brawl+ and Project M.
PopRocks359  +   533d ago
Here's my list. The last three are my preferences for third party characters.

Dillon
Little Mac
Shulk
Kumatora (Earthbound)
Palutena
King K. Rool
Weavel (Metroid Prime Hunters)
Pac-Man
Shantae or Patricia Wagon
Wreck-It Ralph

I would love chase mccain or rex firy to appear.
LoaMcLoa  +   533d ago
Oh man, I hope Travis Touchdown is in the next one!
SAYGUH  +   533d ago
& here's my list

Meowth, he just has to. I don't give a damn.
Mewtwo, ya kiddin me. He's the best pokemon.
King k rool, we know he's comming.
Megaman, this makes absolute sense.
Ballon fighter, duh.

& that about does it
Exodecai  +   533d ago
I really hope Waluigi is playable
Muigi  +   533d ago
How about Sora? He's been in 4 games on a Nintendo system.
Venomousfatman  +   533d ago
I really thought about having Sora on the list. Originally with games like Dream Drop Distance, Chain of Memories, and 358/2, it would make sense that he would have a good shot. However, with KH 1.5 Remix coming out, and talks of the next game in the series, I have a strong feeling that much favor is going to go towards the PS3/PS4 with that series. Maybe if there is DLC characters down the line after SSB 4 comes out, Nintendo can hopefully prove me wrong.
kirbyu  +   533d ago
I'd hate it if he were in.
CouldHaveYelledUiiW  +   533d ago
As long as Samus and Zero Suit are in the game, I don't care.

I really want to see what the NEW Formula/ Gameplay for Smash Brothers will be.
Nintendo said that the NEW Smash Brothers (on WiiU) won't play the same way as the previous versions.
skyrimer  +   533d ago
Get Iwata in the roster, he punches like a boss
jakmckratos  +   533d ago
I like Krystal, Little Mac, Palutena and Megaman but this list has far too many 3rd party characters. I would add:

Bowser Jr
Balloon Fighter
Toad
Female Pokemon Trainer with 3 pokemon from next gen
Tom Nook
Samurai Goroh
Ghirahim
Geno
Your Mii
Your customizable character from Fire EMblem:Awakening(3DS version only)
Ridley
King K.Rool
Prince Fluff(Kirby's Epic Yarn)
Dillon
Princess Rosalina
Professor E. Gad
Shulk
Sora
Knuckles(I want tails but I thought Tails could be paired with sonic in an ice climber motif)
kirbyu  +   533d ago
Chrom: If he's another Marth clone, I don't think we'd need him.

TT: I don't know much about this guy, but he shares his 1st name with my non-gaming brother, so maybe him being in would get him to play SSB with me. Probably not though.

Pac-Man: If he isn't in, no Namco characters will be.

Little Mac: He sounds fun to play as.

Waluigi: Oh yeah, he would definitely be interesting. But, why is his series listed as Mario Party?

Krystal: I'd rather play as Slippy. And I don't even like Star Fox.

Zoroark: By the time SSB4 comes out, X & Y will probably have been released and will have a more recent Pokemon for that position.

Lady Palutena: If she's a part of Pit's Final Smash, how can she be playable?

Mega Man: AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWYEEEEEEEEEAAAAA AAAAHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! If he's in, I don't need any other 3rd party characters (Pac-Man doesn't count as 3rd party because Namco is making the game). But, knowing Capcom, they'll probably announce Mega Man's appearance in the game, and then cancel it.

Rayman: No, he sucks.
Dj7FairyTail  +   533d ago
Bowser Jr
King K. Rool
Little Mac
Ghirahim
Anthong Higg
Magnus
