3DS Nintendo Wii U

The Super Smash Bros Fighter Ballot May Only Be Limited To Nintendo Characters

The fact that we can decide which character we would like in Super Smash Bros is fantastic. However, it might only be limited to Nintendo characters. I know a few of you have voted for King K. Rool and also Banjo has been added to the mix with Xbox boss Phil Spencer giving him the nod. A recent post on the official Super Smash Bros Facebook page says the following:

 Okay, here goes… Which Nintendo character do you want in Super Smash Bros.? Submit your choice at the official site…

Thanks, MasterPikachu6

    1. Yes, because she is a exclusive Wii U, she is possible in smash because nintendo had a good relationship with Platinum Games and Kamiya declared “So it’s not something that I could comment on. In fact, you could probably ask Mr. Sakurai! If Mr. Sakurai wanted to put her in the game it probably would happen and I’d be more than happy to!”

      1. Because they are special 3rd parties. Megaman and sonic and pacman. That’s it. No other 3rd party character is worthy, that’s why Snake didnt make the cut.
        3rd parties and 2nd do not and should not make the cut anymore.

        More for King K. Rool then :)

      2. If 2nd party characters shouldn’t be in, then Pikachu, Charizard, and all the Pokémon have no right to be in the game.

        2nd party characters are just fine.

      3. Sonic, Mega Man and Pac-Man are the primary mascots of their companies.
        That’s why they were chosen over anyone else from Sega, Capcom and Namco respectively.

      2. Not true at all. Nintendo owns everything that has to do with the DK series minus the Jet pack arcade game included in dk64. The only reason why the Kremlin haven’t made an appearance in the new DK games is because Retro wanted to make the new series their own and not just a re imagining of the original series.

        Ps. The Kremlin have been in mario strikers, baseball, and in smash 3ds..

      5. I’m glad I’m not the only one who wants Medusa, but it’s sad to say that Viridi and Hades will overshadow her because of popularity and “muh relevance”. She would still be a great addition since she was from the first game (Like Pit and Palutena) and could turn people to stone for good measure.

  2. You’re just interpreting things way to literally – Snake was in Brawl in spite of his franchise being mostly Playstation and Xbox (at least nowadays), and Sonic, Pac Man and Mega Man are all characters in 3DS/Wii U in spite of being multiplatform, and with at least Sonic, he only got in due to how often requested he was.

    Not to mention the Rayman trophies as well as the Commander Video trophy.

    While I understand that it’s a lot easier for Nintendo to use first-party characters instead of third-party ones, they’re not closed to the ideas to third party ones simply due to their appearances in Brawl and 3DS/Wii U.

    I think they just slipped up and said “Nintendo characters” instead of simply “video game characters”.

      1. Agreed. I loved the N64 Bomberman games and most of the titles of recent years.

        Though, I honestly believe Rayman has a shot at becoming a fighter too- he and several other Rayman series characters already have trophies in the games. If Ubisoft is willing to work with Nintendo to get him in, I say go for it- it would be a first step towards rectifying things with Nintendo supporters for all the recent crap they’ve pulled.

  3. I doubt that it’ll be only nintendo characters, because there’s basically no other nintendo character to release, apart from maybe waluigi. They could release even more pokemon, but i doubt that will be the case.

    Notice also that on the main ballot site it says “Do you want your favorite video-game character to join the battle in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U?” – it doesnt say “do you want your favorite nintendo character”, so unless nintendo have done some really poor communication, it can’t be limited to nintendo characters.

I rather have Paper Mario replace Dr. CLONE all the way. If Link can have a Toon counterpart with similar moveset, then we can have a Paper Mario with a different moveset, just replace that Dr. CLONE with him. Dixie Kong is a MUST HAVE in the game. WTF is Katt Monroe? lol I bet nobody even knows WTF she is or what game she’s from. Krystal for a female Star Fox representative plus she’s hot (I’m not a furry. lol)

        Exactly. Wii Fit was just a gimmick for that Wii Balance board that nobody but health nuts and Cheetos eating fat asses use for their spare time out of boredom.

The most OP thing about him is his forward smash not flinching I would say. I don’t like running but I won’t hesitate to run from a KO meter lol. Replacing Dr.Clone would mean I would have Fludd Mario. I’d almost rather replace regular lol. Doc’s tornado is quite potent lol. Dixie Kong I would love to be in. Katt Monroe is the original female Star Fox Rep from 64 :p

I just have no interest in using her myself cause I don’t like the wii fit stuff cause it symbolizes nintendo catering to casuals to me, and I find her look to be boring as well. I do love the fact that she uses yoga moves though, that is respectable. I’m not fighting to get her out of the game though, and I will have no problem playing against a wii fit player. As long as they don’t spam volleyballs and salute the sun or whatever it’s called all day. That gets annoying lol.

      … you… you are joking, right? You do realise that there are more Smash Bros. untapped iconic Nintendo characters than most other game developers have in total, right? And then there’s the second-stringers as well. There are literally dozens of Nintendo characters that should be considered before Waluigi is even mentioned.
      Off the top of my head – just from Zelda, there’s Impa, Midna and Wolf Link, Tetra, Vaati, Ghirahim, Demise, Yuga, or a major Zora or Goron character; from Golden Sun, there’s Isaac, Felix, and Matthew; Reyn, Dunban, Fiora from Xenoblade; any of the main characters from the Wars (best known as Advance Wars) series; so many Fire Emblem characters (and yes, besides sword-fighters); Samurai Goroh, Black Shadow, Blood Falcon, Jody Summer, Krystal, King K. Rool, Geno, Takamaru, Dillon, Mallo; and there’s too many Pokemon that could be made playable to count, but there’s still of course the two untapped classic fighting Pokemon, Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan…
      Oh, and they could also include characters from the likes of Codename: S.T.E.A.M., Splatoon, Xenoblade Chronicles X etc. to promote them, alike what they did by including Roy in Melee…..
