Playable Character Roster Speculations

#1nharmPosted 6/11/2013 8:11:11 PM
From the blank portraits on the official site, 12/18 characters have been revealed...
Of the remaining, you would think the following:

FO SHO MAN: luigi (it's his year)
MOST LIKELY: captain falcon, yoshi, insert pokemon here
SPECULATIVE: ness OR lucas (only one can survive), olimar, snake, sonic, tetra, isaac

There are ~2 character slots that could surprise. What do you guys' think about my projections?

You are taking that wayyyyy to literally.
They would never, ever give the roster size this early. The game doesnt even have a release date, and on all smash bros games, they actually changed the amount of characters at the very end.

In the original, meowth, mewtwo, peach, bowser, and more were meant to be playable but werent.

In melee, Pichu, Dr. Mario, Gannondrof, Roy, etc were added last minute to make the roster bigger.

Wolf, Toon Link, and Jigglypuff were all really late additions, Sonic being implemented to late to be appear in the story, and Characters like Mewtwo, Toon Zelda, Dixie, Plusle, Minun, and more were all unable to make it.

Do not focus on this to much at all. There will be more than 18 characters, im willing to bet money on it.

Lucina, Newtwo, Ridley, Tom Nook, Bowser Jr, Palutena, Megaman, Lloyd Irving for SSB4

I understand your point.. but Nintendo will focus on balancing this go around, therefore each character will take longer to develop into the fighter he/she was intended to be...Before the WiiU/3DS iteration, the balance once measured by Sakurai. Now the measurements will be taken as a team, so there will be less characters than in Brawl.

Middle odds (IMO):

Pokemon Trainer
Lucario (may get swapped for a gen 6 pokemon or Mewtwo)
R.O.B.
Toon Link (May get swapped for new 3DS Link)

Dunno (IMO):
Snake
Wolf (two semi-clones of Fox seems like a bit much)

Those from 64 version will be in them all.
That is my speculation.
I just want Chrom and Priam :(
