Choice Provisions Wants CommanderVideo From The Bit Trip Series In Smash Bros

Choice Provisions has expressed desire to see CommanderVideo from the Bit.Trip series be added to the Super Smash Bros. roster. The character already appears in the latest version of the fighting game as an unlockable trophy, but the developer wants him to be featured as a playable fighter as well. Formerly known as Gaijin Games, Choice Provisions regularly supports Nintendo platforms with several downloadable titles on the Nintendo eShop for both Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. If you want CommanderVideo to become a fighter, be sure to vote for him in the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot.

  1. Commander Video is already a trophy in Smash Bros, though, so he’s probably the most likely out of all indie third-party characters. But being the most likely doesn’t mean he’s likely, though….

  2. This really is getting some great PR.
    I’d love to see a Ninja Turtle and Captain America make an appearance.

  3. If you guys think this is bad, then you should have seen the producers behind Azure Gunvolt (Intel) pushing their fans to vote for him.

  4. Or nah. King K. Rool everyone. I’m sure they’ll do more than one DLC character, but can we please have our priorities straight? It may just be me, but King K. Rool should be the main focus. If you want third party/indies, go for Shovel Knight or Shantae. At least have them FEEL Nintendo.

    1. Agreed. I’ve been pulling for K. Rool since Brawl. Then before Smash 4 came out. Now back at it again.
      He deserved it since Melee though.
      First priority. After he gets in, I don’t care who else gets put in.

    2. King K. Rool, Dixie Kong, Medusa, Hades, Isaac, Andy (from Advance Wars), Waluigi, Wonder Red, etc. there’s a huge list of characters that I think should come ahead of most indie characters. Definitely voted for King K. Rool already, he’d be awesome.

  5. As much as I think CommanderVideo is a cool character, I just don’t think he earned his due yet nor is he as popular as Bayonetta, Shantae, Banjo-Kazooie, Rayman, Shovel Knight, or even Simon Belmont are. I think Choice Provisions should be grateful that Nintendo even considered to make their character as one of the unlockable trophies. I’m just waiting for Two Tribes to cast their bid for Toki Tori to be in Smash lol

  6. Well of COURSE they do… Why wouldn’t anybody ELSE want THEIR character in Smash… (Seriously, we get it, you want your character to draw attention to their games… Or in other words, shameless plugs)

  7. >>>The only thing I wanted to see begging on their knees are the Sonyans, Electrons and Ubisians since the Xbot Emperor already did>>>

    1. The only thing I want is for you to stop role-playing……… But we all know that’s not going to happen…. Sadly.

        1. >>>You peons can’t even think logically, he roasted himself because him, just like everyone in this base knows, it’s pointless to resist>>>

          1. What? Your comment just fried my circuit boa……….. Wait. Now you’re making me sound like a pathetic role-playing robot……….. Okay I don’t think stupid will come out of my mouth again.
            But seriously…. Your comment just made no sense.

    2. Quite, that would be most amusing. Though now all these indies are sounding rather pathetic. I can understand them wanting their games to get more exposure, but all it does now is remind me of how annoying it is to see these people use Nintendo as their foothold to get attention after so many years of talking about how irrelevant and pointless they were. Not that all the indies have been bitch talking, but still, all of this bandwagoning is quite… tiresome.

      1. >>>Indeed, although I can understand ones like Shantae even though she is not close to the legendary status of such icons like my enemy Samus Aran, at least they have put several games in our sacred machines unlike those Xbot worshiping Meat developers and their Meatbag character>>>

  8. Commander Video is cool. Wouldn’t mind if he made it, but I would still rather have someone else.

    1. You know, I’d still pick a fictional character as the self-appointed “commander” of inane, blind fanboys over Commandweller.

      1. >>>And yet your opinion is invalid as I already claimed the title>>>

  9. Yeah definatly out of hand. Crap indie developers trying to make a name for themselves with their no name characters…. Hey not saying all indie games suck, but indie game characters are some of the most uninspired character designs …

    1. The bit trip games are some of the best rhythm games ever made, and Commander Video’s design is one of the great examples of minimalism applied to game art… Twit.

    1. And thus you will never be taken serious nor ever be relevant in this world.
      You are IRRELEVANT!

  10. Another one that has no actual chance of getting in as a player. No one’s even talking about this game and barely ever did to start with.

  11. Can’t you just gather all these insignificant indie wishful thinking tweets in one newspost at the end of every week or something. This is getting really old, really fast.

  12. Well now. Good for them. How many other companies with pointless characters that stand no chance are gonna throw their hat into the ring?

    Vote Shovel Knight~

  13. This constant begging and demanding from most of these Indie developers is becoming obnoxious.
    Can we please focus the ballot on characters that actually have a “history” in gaming?
    It’s very hilarious to see them suddenly displaying a caring nature when they notice an opportunity to take the spotlight of attention.
    I’d say Team Meat is the worst one to try and force votes on people though.

  14. 1. The five character slots everyone should know because of the leaks
    2. Mewtwo, lucas, wolf, one or both ice climbers it will be both or the other will be abother costume, and the character that gets the most votes
    3. Of course that’s just as of now there can be more dlc characters
    4. I can’t wait for xenoblade chronicles X this year and the shin megami x fire emblem crossover which is most likely going to be 2016 for everyone else

  15. It still upsets me. Sakurai should just comment and say “Nintendo characters only” who cares if it stirs up trolls and others who want to see pointless 2nd or 3rd party characters just because they liked the game ……. *cough cough* Bayonetta *cough*…

  16. It’s funny how all these pathetic indie game studios want their characters in Smash. I am certain none of these characters have even a 1% chance of being considered. The main reason they want their characters in Smash is for marketing purposes, because low-budget indie titles generally sell poorly, especially Nintendo exclusives. The ballot doesn’t matter either, no indie title has enough support to get a good amount of votes. The vote is most likely going to end up being won by a Nintendo character or a popular third-party character owned by a big-budget company, like Rayman or Banjo.

  17. I feel that King K. Rool, Bayonetta, and Isaac should be the main priorities. Other likely characters are Captain Toad, Inklings, Rayman, Bomberman, Shantae, Shovel Knight, and Paper Mario.
