Don't Expect A Lot Of Third-Party Characters In The Next Smash Bros

Kotaku: "The people behind Smash Bros. say not to expect a lot of third-party characters in the next incarnation of their fighting game. Mega Man is an exception." (3DS, Super Smash Bros., Wii U)

Sonic, Snake, Pac-Man, Ryu. Select from this elite pool of iconic characters to fill those coveted remaining spots

I totally agree with that list. Of course I'll be happy if only Sonic makes it back. That said, those really are THE iconic video game characters.

*Ryu would be a perfect fit.

I'm almost more excited to see the 3DS characters considering all the good handheld games that have been on GBA/DS/3DS

Sonic should be a no brainer as Sonic: The Lost World is a Nintendo exclusive. A Namco character probably is coming as well (hopefully Lloyd Irving over Pacman...)

As long as Sonic comes back I don't care about other 3rd Party characters.

As for 1st Party, I really want Mewtwo back and would LOVE an Iron Knuckle added.

Snake and Sonic should be in every SSB as normal characters now.

Bass better be in this.

As for different franchises, I'd have to pick Geno from SMRPG.

Chrom and Shulk (or a charachter form X) please. As for third party, Commander Video or the guy from Scribbenauts might be cool.

If this game adds Pac-Man I'll be good.

There weren't
A lot of third party characters in Brawl. I say bring back Snake and Sonic because they were excellent additions and fun to play with. We have Mega Man confirmed, I think Pac-Man is a no brainer. I'd be quite content with those four third party characters. 4 out of 35? Is not a lot at all.

Well, Brawl had just a couple third party characters anyway.
And I don't mind much as long as Captain Falcon is in.
FALCON PUNCH!!!

Nice to see a non-iconic 3rd party character, making it to Smash Bros, perhaps a Western character from some of the games on WiiU. If Adam Jensen doesn't make it, "there will be blood".
