      what about toejam and earl, earthworm jim, vector man, mega man, joanna dark, banjo kazooie

    • I agree. The three mentions from the Animal Crossing series do sound like realistic candidates, Mr. Resetti especially (I mean, he’s got an actual WEAPON in his paws, aside from the boom of his voice making an effective disabling-type FS), as would Porky, even if i know nothing of Earthbound.

      But Geno might make another realistic (third party) candidate. I mean, [FCC]loads of people want him in the game, he’s got beams, boosts, flashes, whirls, blasts… All that stuff is capable of being dished out by this guy…

      Furthermore… come on… when are we gonna get to see Crystal in action? I mean, attractive blue vixen wielding a battle staff? Who wouldn’t want to play as her?

      I would like to see Groose, Giriham, Zelda/Impa instead of Zelda/Shiek, Kirby with Return to Dreamland super abilities, Maglor, and maby demise.

      Instead of having all the links separate (as you suggested) why not have fierce diety be an alternate costume for link and have deku link be an alternative for toon/young link??

    • KCD1077

      First party: Poo form earthbound
      Third party: Wesker from resident evil
      Character to keep: Lucas
      Character to axe: Jigglypuff

      I can’t quite figure out if the SSB4 will be better than brawl because different developers are now involved and simply adding more characters and stages won’t make the games any better now. I want to see something new like a few more catagories/styles of gameplay, new characters but keeping the 35 character format, and my personal additions to the roster are Isaac, Little Mac, Megaman, Knuckles, and Chrono; I don’t want to add more characters from the same franchises, I want to see more unique IPs implemented in the game
      If Nintendo can do that, I’ll be one of the happiest men alive

      GO Nlucario :D!

    • In my opinion, I would like to see Waluigi and Daisy included as new Nintendo fighters, and if you ask me for third-party ones, I think Connor from Assassin’s Creed 3 would be perfect. All those weapons and a new series introduced into the nintendo Wii-U, CONNOR HAS GOT TO MAKE IT SSB4

    • I would love to see at least Midna, Rosalina, Amaterasu, Chibiterasu, Wave the Swallow, or Meloetta.Chances are, most of them won’t make the cut, but get rid of Pokemon trainer please. To me, he was rather pointless, and the gimmick behind him just didn’t felt right for the game.
