Pikmin and Captain Olimar will be returning to the Smash Bros. series in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. U & 3DS, Nintendo has announced.
I'm glad they're adding so many new and unique characters. I wonder who else they'll announce.
Professor Layton would be cool.
Olimar isn't new though he was in brawl. Glad he's returning tho.
I think its more exciting because of the new Pikmin game and the more advanced hardware!
The more they make Smash Bros. awesome,diverse, and interesting, the more I really really wish Sony could have done the same with All Stars. Oh well, at least we've still got Smash Bros. Can't wait to see who else is on the roster.
Pikmin & Olimar> full roster "All Stars" Not only does this game only come with 20 characters out of the box and post launch characters that are added seem to be paid DLC after the first two weeks of release, but a lot characters that are very important to PlayStation aren't in this game.
Except All-Stars has around 1-2 characters each Sony game, while many characters from Smash come from the same game. Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, Wario are all from the mario universe. You also have characters that aren't that important to Nintendo, like Sonic, which is 3rd party, Wii Fit Trainer (wtf), and many "clone characters", like the garbage Starfox Roster of Fox, Falco and Wolf. So yes, Smash may have "more" characters, but All Stars nails the variety, aside from Cole and those OP assholes Raiden and Kratos. You can't just say the All Stars Roster suck because 2 characters that are no longer Sony didn't make it. Maybe if it had larger sales, Sony might have bought the right to use those characters.
@NightStalker I wasn't necessarily talking about the roster. Just the game over all. I love All-Stars character roster, it was awesome. It was more of the gameplay, lack of unlockables, and lack of inherent replay value that disappointed me.
@NightStalker33 You sure Mario - Super Mario Donkey Kong - Donkey Kong Link - The Legend of Zelda Samus - Metroid Yoshi - Yoshi Kirby - Kirby Fox - Star Fox Pikachu - Pokemon Captain Falcon - F-Zero Ness - Mothers Ice Climbers - Ice Climbers Marth - Fire Emblem Mr. Game n Watch - Game n Watch Pit - Kid Icarus Wario - Wario Land / Warioware Captain Olimar - Pikmin Villager - Animal Crossing Wii Fit Trainer - Wii Series They still haven't used Golden Sun Drill Dozer Advance Wars Star Tropics The Legendary Starfy Sin & Punishment The Last Story Xenoblade Pandora's Tower The Wonderful 101 Takamaru Pushmo Dillion Rolling Western and many more Unlike PS All-Stars though the game most wanted characters aren't from Sony they are from Third Party. Yet Superbot and Santa Monica added the others Sony characters from same series already represented in the stage cameo or supers. But going to add Zeus and Evil Cole.
You misunderstood me, I completely agreed with your post, just not with the post of ritsuka. All-Stars was disappointing, without a doubt, but I had no issue with the roster.
Ah gotcha :) Carry on then! Just wish we could get the roster of All-stars with the playability of Smash Bros.
You must be new to PlayStation then. Because so many PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2 characters that are very important to PlayStation are no where to be found on this game.
They nailed Sly, Ratchet, MedEVIL, Ape Escape, Parrappa, and Jak. Most of the characters that didn't make it, like Spyro, A FF character, and Crash is because Sony doesn't own them anymore. It's really disappointing not to have everyone, but what can you do?
No prob. The whole reason I bought and loved All-Stars was because I was already a Smash fan. I thought the general reaction would be positive, and the negativity towards the game, mainly for being a "copy", feels unnecessary.

Here is my care face.
I just don't see why we wouldn't point people towards the official much nicer page that isn't slow and full of ads.
It looks like the next Super Smash is going to have a huge roster.
Could of announced a brand new character to go along side Olimar. Announce an old character returning with a new character
Still waiting on a Monilith Soft character. Xenoblades has way too many characters not to be used.
i would love one from xenoblade the last story and pandoras tower. im sure they'll at least show up as assist trophies
Riki would fit perfectly.
I was hoping he wouldnt come back.
Why? Something to do with symmetry???
I simply dont care for Olimar.
More new characters please!
I wonder if Nintendo will open one slot up to a poll for an audience-added character.
That would be MegaMan, he was second to Sonic in a Brawl poll. It would be far too late to add any new characters that haven't been planned for yet, Sakurai has strict deadlines for things like this, long passed.
surprised they didn't use alpha,beta,and Charlie. sidenote: the game looks gorgeous. I love the pic with Kirby.
why would they there no logic tto it. They would just be clones
not if there was no olimar or if they implemented a pokemon trainer type system. Giving you the ability to switch between the three, they would each have different speed, jumping and perhaps even a couple different attacks. I dunno I'm not mad that they chose olimar just surprised they didn't update the representation of the franchise.
I find it odd they used Olimar and not one of the ones from Pikmin 3. And if Olimar is in Pikmin 3, why doesn't he have Rock or Flying Pikmin?
Olimar is the face of Pikmin the reason Pikmin exists.
