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.

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
Pandora's Tower
The Wonderful 101
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.
Wedge19  +   752d ago
Ah gotcha :) Carry on then! Just wish we could get the roster of All-stars with the playability of Smash Bros.
ritsuka666  +   752d ago
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.
NightStalker33  +   752d ago
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.
JonnyBigBoss  +   752d ago
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.
user5575708  +   752d ago
i would love one from xenoblade the last story and pandoras tower. im sure they'll at least show up as assist trophies
Firan  +   752d ago
Riki would fit perfectly.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   752d ago
I was hoping he wouldnt come back.
cpayne93  +   752d ago
Why? Something to do with symmetry???

I simply dont care for Olimar.
dbjj12088  +   752d ago
More new characters please!
insertcoin  +   752d ago
I wonder if Nintendo will open one slot up to a poll for an audience-added character.
Kevlar009  +   752d ago
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.
Jagsrock  +   752d ago
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
Jagsrock  +   751d ago
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.
kirbyu  +   752d ago
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?
Dj7FairyTail  +   751d ago
Olimar is the face of Pikmin the reason Pikmin exists.
