    These questions and many more filled the heads of fans ever since E3 2011 at the Nintendo Pre-E3 2011 Press Conference where President Satoru Iwata officially announced the title (still without a proper name) and confirmed that it will soon be in development for both Wii U and 3DS!

    Now let the speculation begin!

    Who do you want to see as a brand-new playable character for Super Smash Bros. 4?
    Here are some realistic ideas:

      Imagine a Skies of Arcadia map as well. Possibly on the Delphinis with other ships shooting at you in the background! I think it would work out great if they did something like that…. *sigh* I miss Skies of Arcadia  it’s a real shame it never got a sequel.

    • Anoyomous

      What the heck. I would have put Krystal in it.

    • Jgennantonio1

      Arceus and Genesect(pokemon) would be awesome! Or Darkrai, Deoxys, and MissingNo.

    • I would like to see Darkrai.
