    1. Ness was always coming back, I don’t get why people actual expected him to be cut. He’s of the original 12 and one of the most unique fighters, and the first Rep of Earthbound. Never once thought he wasn’t gonna be in.

  1. In before “Ridley isn’t playable” crybabies.

    Get over it. There are things much worse than not getting to play as an over sized bird-alien mutant.

            1. Big mistake. Might as well brought back R.O.B instead of Dr. Mario. Dark Samus would’ve been a great villain representative for those who whined for Ridley to be playable and made my day.

              1. R.O.B. was kick ass if you knew how to use him. Most of his moves have a delay on them, so you have to take that into account. I would love to have him, he had unique moves, and I don’t think people with unique movesets should be cut.

    1. oh my gosh if i have to hear the he’s too big argument i’ll build a laser and melt someones eyeballs. Bowers body size changes in amost every single mario entry. he changes his size twice in one game mario sunshine. not to mention mario party ten, watch the trailer! logic has no place in the nintendo universe… and FYI ridley is in the game.

  2. dark pit and dr mario

    ok. ok sakurai. obviously you heard the public outcry for more offensively blatant clones aight das cool mix things up with stethoscope mario oh boy

      1. That is literally the most obscure character idea they could have thought of. He only ever had one game appearance and everyone hated him because he was so annoying.
        This doesn’t make me want the game any less, but it’s still a waste along with the other 2.
        And no, don’t tell me “Just beat them up if you don’t like them!”

        1. I feel like the clones were like: “hey, we’ve completed the roster, we can probably add 2 or 3 characters if they borrow animations” and thus, clones. So think of them as purely bonus characters, wanted or not.

      2. Kinda like Zero Suit’s final smash, and similar to Snake’s from brawl? I can see it happening and would be most fitting for him, but it sucks to have such similar final smashes, but with him what else can you really do lol (Duck Hunt Dog).

  3. Now Ness crybabies can finally rest now that he’s confirmed.

    But..Dr. Mario is here again? Haven’t they learn their lesson about putting clones? Come on. This and Zero Suit Samus wastes a slot. Where’s Dark Samus for a cut and even Krystal as a female representative of Star Fox?

        1. Nah, can’t agree with that, nobody liked having to switch from samus to zero suit samus and being stuck as her til you hopefully got another smash ball. Alternate skin, fine, but not as a smash, that’s just not cool, and samus’ beam final wasn’t so great to begin with.

    1. I don’t know why anyone thought Ness wouldn’t be in, I knew it from day 1 before anyone was announced. No way they were cutting the original earthbound rep who’s been in the series since the start. And his moves are very unique, it’d be a waste of a great character. I hope they give him an awesome video like other people, I think he would have an awesome intro video.

        1. Ice Climbers didn’t deserve it no doubt, but they weren’t in it since 64, that’s why I wasn’t as surprised, and I think I remember reading a while back there would be some cuts people wouldn’t like. Mewtwo was 50/50 coming back since he only was in one game. Would much rather have him over lucario though. Dark Pit I’m not defending, nor the Dark Samus decision. Just stating why I knew Ness and jigglypuff as well were guaranteed essentially.

            1. Other than being little balloon like creatures that float, they are nothing alike moveset wise. Kirby was distustingly awesome in 64 where as Jigglypuff was total garbage. Their down A aerial kick combo is the only attack I can think of off the top of my head. I’ve never liked Jigglypuff myself but again, she’s been there since the original, so they weren’t gonna make her the only fighter cut off the original 12. I don’t see anyone from the original 12 getting cut if the series continues past these installments (no reason it shouldn’t). Again, not defending the decision, just explaining the logic I’m sure they used to come up with it.

      1. Ridley 2 Big 4 Smash? More Like 2 Big 4 U Wiiklings 2 Control! Leave Him 2 The Masters!

        xD Now that’s a Metroid character that is DEFINITELY too big for Smash. Least Ridley could be explained away with the fact he was most likely not that big throughout his entire life cycle; if the Ridley from Other M is decided to NOT be canon, that is, because of the hate for that game. Not even humpback whales are born at 50 ft, after all.

    1. they’ re are two roster leaks remember and both of them are shaping up to be true. we are going to have 50+ characters to play as. I strongly believe the rumors of dixie kong. she was going to be in the last installment but ended up getting cut from the game.

      1. I’d love to have Dixie, and hopefully her older look, I don’t like her tropical freeze art style and such compared to the classic games.

          1. lol it’s not that big a difference looking at them, but there are some, I don’t like the new eyes for example. Don’t know what it is lol.

            1. Nintendo Sub-Lieutenant

              Her newer design is less relatable. Allow me to explain;
              The older design depicts a much more feminine Dixie Kong. Though the traits she expresses are unique to humans, making her more relatable. Painted nails, long lashes, and a higher tied shirt.
              And finally, the most important aspect!! Her head is larger than her body!
              While exaggeratingly large, this is the key element.

              When comparing head-to-body ratios of humans and chimps, Humans have larger heads in the ratio when comparing our bodies to the bodies of chimps. Who have a larger focus on their bodies than their heads.
              Meaning the newer design is more monkey than ever.

              1. You pretty much put a logical reason behind all my reasons lol. I was gonna point out the painted nails and different eye lashes, and even the hair curls and bangs being different. I also liked her knee pads, and her hat even seems a bit sharper. Thanks for pointing out the head shape, that’s definitely bringing it all together with the monkey human explanation.

  4. I’ll be honest, the fact that Ice Climbers are gone is big downer. Really sucks in my opinion that they bring back Dr. Mario yet ditch the Ice Climbing veterans. Already a giant hurt in the heart for me.

  5. Sigh.Trying to save up for my PC, but screw it. I’m pre-ordering this game for 3DS next week. I can’t take it. I mean… It’s just $40 right? Wouldn’t hurt to spend just a bit anyways. Lmao I just cannot live without my SMASH! :D -HollowGrapeJ- Too lazy to sign in from my phone. Again. Lol.

    1. I feel you. I was going to build me a nice PC, but now I’m about to buy the Smash Bros 3DS XL, the physical copy of the game SEPARATELY, and that SSBU, adapter, and gcn controller bundle coming to Wii U. Even in the games’ current “fighting game-lite” direction, this is the one game in the world that would make me do something like this. I love Super Smash Bros’ ‘sandbox fighter’ style, and it only comes around once a console generation.

  6. Duck hunt dog WHAT THE HE’LL…. What a waste of a player slot!!!! I would rather Paper Mario, Demise, Chrome, Mewtwo, Midna of Wolf Link…… I can go on and on.

  7. What the **** are you talking about ? wasting slots ??? HAHAHA you know Sakurai’s the boss so he can add any characters in his game as he want…if he want to have more characters trust me he will do…the problem is not about the slots…the problem is the characters he want in the game thats it. There are no true limits about the slots.

    1. Oh, Ganondorf is actually there! I got confused with Game & Watch, lol. Well, now that I remember, my fav. characters were Ice Climbers and Wolf all along. So where are they???

  8. I feel like the clones were like: “hey, we’ve completed the roster, we can probably add 2 or 3 characters if they borrow animations” and thus, clones. So think of them as purely bonus characters, wanted or not.

  9. I am so happy for the DHD character… look like a very creative idea, I can’t see it coming, and it his a part of my childhood, I can’t wait to crush my enemies with ducks!

  10. I was really hoping that motherfucking dog did not make it in, of all the possibilities, WHY him!? there better be some goddamn DLC because this is the first time a smash bros roster has pissed me off with these pansy ass characters. 5/8 of these characters are actually worth a damn, and Dr. mario isnt one of them

  11. wait no bowser jr nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  12. Yay for Ness! Duck Hunt Dog? LOL! Man, I thought that was a joke in that post a while back where it showed the Duck Hunt dog. But now it’s confirmed. Sweet. But what the heck will the dog do, bark and laugh at his opponents?

  13. Ridley 2 Big 4 Smash? More Like 2 Big 4 U Wiiklings 2 Control! Leave Him 2 The Masters!

    Ness: of course he’d return. But least now people will quit whining about him in the Smash community.

    Falco: FUCK YOU!!! I’d rather have Slippy Toad than Falco. Least Slippy Toad could be like Luigi is to Mario: slippery movements. I’d rather have Wolf, too, to give us one good rep & one evil rep from the Star Fox franchise, even if he did become a clone again.

    Dark/Black Pit: He better be immensely different from Pit, damn it! If not, FFFFF!! Should have left him as an alternate color for Pit. And why name him Dark/Black Pit? Why not Pittoo? Ugh! Just had to name him Dark Pit as a nod to Dark Link & Dark Samus.

    Duck Hunt Dog: I’m actually okay with this character. It’s just another character I’ll enjoy pummeling more than playing. Dog, you will pay for laughing at me all those times I failed at shooting ducks in Duck Hunt! D:< REVENGE SHALL BE MINE!!!

    Game and Watch: Glad he's back. Too bad we can only have 4-man battles, so no Pac-Man vs Game & Watch vs Mario, vs Mega Man vs Sonic.

    Ganondorf: For the love of God, have an original moveset! If he's a clone again, fuck, fuck, fuck! You suck, suck, suck, Sakurai! Thank you for showing us that Koei Tecmo is better than you at giving Ganondorf/Ganon respect as Link & Zelda's biggest enemy.

    Dr Mario: Bleh! Another clone character!

    Wario: Glad he's back. I'm surprised they haven't given him the nickname Dark Mario yet! xD

  14. I hope jigglypuff is like she was in melee. She was so OP, wall of pain, rest insta-ko, ridiculous airtime with pound, ah jigglypuff was my jam in melee. Garbage in brawl and 64 though.
