  1. i hope they cut like a third of the characters from smash 4 so they have more space for new ones

    1. Ferno


      bring back snake

    2. Wraith


      they don't actually need to cut characters

    3. Dejimon11


      Cut Dark Pit.

      Space? Do fighting game character models even take up any significant space in the first place?

      They should build that roster up to the sky, as far as I'm concerned. Just use unlocking for the majority of them to keep the number from being to intimidating to newcomers, in the process.

      there's like, balancing to think about, as well as animating and doing homework on each character, etc

      @Josh i think they should, though. people are always going to want new characters, but the cast can't just grow without limit.

      @The Deleter by space i meant more like, development resources, not on-disk/cartridge space

    7. Wraith


      yes it can

      I dunno about cutting characters, but Smash 4 was already pretty much approaching the limit of what you can justify from Ninty's big-ass software history, and we just added Inklings and most likely Spring Man on top of that. If it's only a small amount of newcomers this time around and they spend the extra time on fleshing out gameplay and other content, I won't complain.

      I mean even if it's considered a "new game" I can't imagine that the engine or aesthetic is going to be any different than 4, on what's basically the same hardware. If it is, well, yeah, they should cut it down to be manageable, but if it's a simple case of porting over the old assets into the new game, I can't imagine it taking up much resources in the first place...

      who outta this third would you cut then

    11. Ferno


      im gonna be so gutted if i have to go through a 3rd smash hype cycle without rayman getting in

      the trophy and fake leak already killed me last time. my heart is weak now

    12. Penny


      you know who would be the perfect character for switch smash


      my boy reggie of course

      @TCB just off the cuff:

      dr mario, lucina, dark pit, lucas (those could all be demoted to skins), at least 2 of the mii fighters if they don't ditch the concept entirely, one out of mewtwo/lucario/greninja, shulk, corrin, ryu, cloud, bayonetta, roy, sheik (replaced with a SS/Hyrule Warriors style young impa)...that's about a fourth of the cast, that I could cut with little to no personal remorse, and I'm sure i could cut deeper with the right incentives (like, I'm a big fan of toon link but I could probably trade him for Tetra).

      and i'm sure every one of those characters would have people defending them, but you can't please everyone all of the time, and this is just where I'd start making cuts if i was in charge

    14. TCB


      >Bayonetta being cut, not cutting Charizard but considering one of those three

      Yeah you right; ain't pleasing everyone with this list lol
