The final roster for the new Smash Bros. games is in. Early buyers of the 3DS version have completed unlocking characters, so the fun is sadly over.
I'm glad that Ganondorf is still in it.
Concerning the 3DS roster, the following characters are absent from past games: Lucas Ice Climbers Wolf Pichu MewTwo Solid Snake Roy Squirtle
Rest In Pepperonis
No Lucas or ice climbers, but they put the Duck Hunt dog in there :/
Still better than any of the clones they brought back.
The leaker said lucas ice climbers would be dlc.
Man, I can't wait to play with Duck Hunt Dog. He looks like such a sick character.
Lucas was merge into Ness custom moveset wise
The only ones I miss are Mewtwo and Snake :(
I just wanted Lucas and Wolf back
Perhaps they saw those as the least played characters and cut them out? Even though I loved playing as the Ice Climbers!
The leaks were true :0 I can't believe DHD got in, really cool. Probably more character to come via DLC. Just a couple of more weeks until it releases!Hype!
Solid roster. Hyped
Hey, those that said Snake didn't deserve to be in SSB due to no MGS on Wii or Wii U got their wish... http://playeressence.com/hi...
well it was indeed once in a lifetime chance for Snake
Hopefully he'll appear in dlc.
LOL! Duck Hunt Dog, instant win!
no mewtwo? hype dead
They better have Snake as DLC. You just can't throw away a moveset that unique.
I thought they were cut down on the roster to better implement well balance characters. But this is larger than any other Smash cast than I can remember.
I just realized Ice Climbers didn't make it D:
Nintendo release a wiiu+ and put 8 gb of ddr5
Color me disappointed if that dog doesn't throw ducks.
I'm glad the Ice Climbers are gone, but I hate that they're missing at the same time. I'd say they're only missing because of the 3DS limitations. If they hadn't made a 3DS version, they could've put everyone in there... PLUS more. I really hate that Lucas isn't in. He was one of my faves.
I truly doubt the lack of Ice Climbers and Lucas has anything to do to with hardware limitations. If the full leak was real which it probably is, Ice Climbers and Lucas will be back through DLC.
Fun fact: There was originally going to be only a 3DS version. No Wii U. Sakurai was later convinced to make a Wii U version. Another fact: 2 characters are too much for 3DS? What about Rosalina. Her and her star. Another thing: 3DS version will probably sell more. So because of this, Nintendo should've just focused on a 3DS version of SSB. Maybe then we would've had Lucas. Right?
Well, Rosalina and Luma aren't even the same size or amount of polygons, I just don't see the 3ds handling 4P Ice Climbers at 60fps. The 3ds' limitations didn't really have too much to do with Lucas though, I was just saying how I wish he was in the game already. Thanks for the facts though. I'm very glad to be getting Smash on the Wii U.
5 days later: http://n4g.com/news/1588603... Told you so!
there are so many amazing Nintendo characters that didn't make it in such disappoint I like the roster mostly but cmon sakurai is an idiot, dr Mario, dark pit, lucina being a marth clone instead of her own thing screw him for wasting time on clones. this game better have some damn good dlc.
Geez. I'm sure if Sakurai had more time and money he could make more characters. But creating a new character model, balancing them, playtesting, new sounds, etc. takes a lot of time and money. This game already has the most characters of any SSB.
and with that the most clones, there are 5 clones and he just separated samus and and Zelda/shiek to make them different characters. he had time and definitely had money its Nintendo. he just had to get dark pit in there to get more reps for his games.
You still don't get it do you. He had time and money for the characters he wanted. Obvously not everyone could make it in. His resources aren't unlimited, his time isn't unlimited, etc. If you still don't get it, and still don't get game development, then okay. I have nothing left to say. Keep thinking Sakurai is an idiot and that he would rather have clones than more unique chracters. "THEZE LAZY DEVZ" right? Right? So lazy. /sarcasm
yes, lazy and don't give two shits, got people freaking rioting for mewtwo to get back in the game and he throws doctor Mario back in,defend him on that he adds whatever he wants, which is why Zelda has had the same 4 reps for the past 3 games (toon/young link are basically the same) and Metroid only 1 ever, but his franchises are always having characters added go ahead and defend him on that one bud. he needs to be replaced.
You should vote with your wallet bud. And not buy the game. I'm sure Sakurai & Nintendo will get the message then. I mean, you don't wanna give money to idiot lazy devs. So don't buy the game.
They should have put Ice Climbers in the Wii U version, and added an exclusive 3DS character to balance it out. (Maybe a handheld franchise character like Shantae or Dillon)
