More Than 14 New Characters Coming To Smash Bros. 4?

I’ve never been much of a snooper on websites, but today, I think I’ve come across something very interesting that might just be true. 14 characters coming to Smash Bros.? It could always be true. This article talks about the possibility of it coming that might even be true. (3DS, Super Smash Bros. 4, Wii U)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 13

Not sure what to think about how the article backs up its claims, but more characters is hardly something to complain about, especially if those supposed leaks of Ridley and other brand-new combatants hold up.

We'll see what happens up till prime time.

I don't see how they got "at least 14 characters". It should be "at most 14 characters".

There's a potential for 14 blank spots, but there's also a chance that those spots could take up 3 spaces like all the other new characters.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   736d ago
The thing about those "spots", though, is that the character images could always be shrunk down to create more of them.
Or the menu could be changed to a slide bar/ring system that doesn't pack all of the icons into it at the same time, and you'd just need to push a direction to scroll through all the available fighters.

It's still in development, after all, so doing it that way is possible if they decide to expand the roster...

This article reminds me of those Half Life 3 jokes. The ones where people take various random things and then claim that Half Life 3 is confirmed. I say this because I assumed the author was an... and had to try it out.

What happened? As I suspected, the author either wanted to troll or was so hyped by their discovery that they quickly jumped to a conclusion.

You see, THAT is how CHROME zooms out and nothing more. When zooming out with Safari, you have 6 empty spaces and Firefox gives you 4. I assume different browsers will yield other results, which people are welcome to try.

Anyway, the fact this got posted without testing another browser shows me how much "research" went into this post. Needless to say, I won't be going back to or looking at AlwaysNintendo again.

That's a thing? Safari is not really that great of a browser but certainly better than IE.

More Characters almost always = more replay value.

I already count 12 characters I'll probably use a bit from the list so far.

At this point, Nintendo should just go all out on a few games and cram a ton of content in.
whyhello0  +   736d ago
More is always fun but Nintendo needs to make a new IP although even if 3d world was a good game. We need something fresh Nintendo. I heard about some rumors about a new IP maybe they can add those characters in smash bros but not likely. Also this game probably will have less characters then brawl cause quality and plus there's even a a link between worlds level with that painting stuff. Which is amazing the fact they redrew their characters in painting form and put it on the level.

With the possibility for Nintendo to take use of DLC this Gen. There is always the chance new packs could come out with more characters, modes, and levels to be introduced down the line. More is ALWAYS better!
TotalSynthesisX  +   736d ago
Sakurai has already said that he has no plans to develop DLC for Smash 4. Which sucks. A lot.
DryBoneKoopa85  +   736d ago
Well that sucks. ANOTHER thing Nintendo needs to fix in there laundry list of things. Nintendo has the power to do DLC but instead ignore the possibility. Oh well maybe they will change there mind. At least I hope so. I would love for this one to become the ULTIMATE Smash game ever!
SpiralTear  +   736d ago
I don't see why DLC is necessary. I'd rather have a complete game when I buy it, and besides, Smash Brothers games have always been known for their huge amount of unlockable content.

I don't think the DLC issue needs to be "fixed."
jelani435  +   736d ago
Thanks for all the feedback on the article guys! I think it would be at MOST 14 because if Nintendo only gave us 3 new characters, there would be a riot. LOL
whyhello0  +   736d ago
Probably cause 22 characters now when brawl had 30+ is kind of a downgrade. Well maybe they are focusing quality over quantity and that 3ds version too. But we will probably see more characters though.
BerfMagoon  +   736d ago
I'd be happy with 1 - 2 characters from a new franchise.

So the whole article is based on nothing.... SMH
JackieCruise69  +   736d ago
Well.. it's a nice thought, whether true or not. I'd absolutely love 14 Newcomers. It'd make the game feel more 'new' to me.

I guess we'll find out throughout the year.
OtakuDJK1NG-Rory  +   736d ago
We already have 22.
We Snake not gonna be back.
Also considering newcomers slot take up more space. I say either 20-22 more.

First off, Lucario is from a Creature's Inc. game. Secondly, why does only so many slots appearing at the moment mean they won't add more slots later? And why would the game feature such a small amount of characters?
TuxedoMoon  +   736d ago
I think smash 4 will have at most 45 characters this time around. I there there were 39 characters in Brawl (individually counting charizard, squirtle, bulbasaur). With Lucario back, I can assume that all most of Brawls characters will return. I would like to see a bunch of characters added, but I'm sure they'll be in the assist trophies. Shulk, Zael, Krystal, and Aeron will most likely just be assist trophies. Isaac, Lyndis, and Ray MK 1 will remain assist trophies too, probably.
TwilightSparkle  +   736d ago
Just give me Shadow the hedgehog And krystal fox than im good:-)
Concertoine  +   736d ago
That would only amount to 38 characters total... compared to 35 in brawl. Thats not enough of a leap for me. 45 minimum imo.
LoaMcLoa  +   736d ago
I think Sakurai said that the amount of characters would not differ that much from Brawl
Kalebninja  +   736d ago
boy I cant wait for the fusion systems so we don't have problems like the 3ds limiting the other version
robparko  +   736d ago
This rumor is based on the responsive design of the Super Smash Bros. website. The site is designed to move the images in such a way that delivers an optimal viewing experience to users across many devices. The empty "character slot" space is nothing more than a design choice.
BerfMagoon  +   736d ago
Somebody test this in another browser.
yoshilite  +   736d ago
I'll take all the Smash characters I can get!
