Why I think Mario will not have new reps

#1Dinoman96Posted 6/28/2013 11:02:58 AM
you folks may want to have a look at this, the following is developer notes on melee from sakurai regarding the roster in 2002:

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/633202-super-smash-bros-for-wii-u/62823052

"Wario placed third in the poll, but with Bowser and Peach pencilled in, Sakurai didn't want to include 3 Mario newcomers."

but this was in 2002, you say. perhaps he changed his mind since?

well, look at brawl in 2008. you can see how mario was limited to four slots, and there was no new mario character in general.

my point is, it seems like sakurai wants to keep slots for each series four at the very maximum. yes, i know dr. mario was the 5th mario rep, but he was just there to fill a slot pretty much, considering melee was a very rushed game. and as mentioned in the notes above, sakurai did consider wario to be a mario clone, but felt like he deserved better.

with that very lone exception, no series has gone beyond four slots. maybe in total characters with transformations, but never above four slots, and i think it should stay that way.

i mean the main mario series. yoshi, dk, and wario are counted as their own series.

characters like waluigi, toad, bowser jr is what i'm referring to.

Still when people talk newcomers they include all of them. They are from the same world, and we will definitely get more Mario reps.

i could see dixie kong (or k rool if we're lucky) being added for dk, but i'm saying i wouldn't expect newcomers for the MAIN mario series (the one with the mushroom icon).

Wario was treated as part of his own series in Brawl, so I see no reason why Waluigi wouldn't go that Wario's series as well.

Because he's not a Wario character.

More villains need to be protagonists. BIS proves it can work.
Ridley, Ganondorf, Fawful, Bowser, and Dimentio all for their own games!

bingo.

if waluigi was a major character in wario land or ware, he could of been filed under wario, but as it stands, he's just a character who solely exists for the mario spin-offs.

He's never been in a Warioware game.
