Your Reaction: most returning characters are cut, but the roster is still 45+

First off, not saying I agree with this design decision, but I wanted to get a bead on who this board would be sad to lose.

I'm assuming that all currently announced characters and the original 12 ARE included, so the current roster would look like this:

Mario
Luigi
Link
Pikachu
Kirby
Fox
Ness
Captain Falcon
DK
Samus
Yoshi
Jigglypuff
Olimar
Villager
Megaman
Miss Fit
Bowser
Pit

So that's 18 characters. now let's say that every other character from Melee or Brawl is not included in the roster, but ~30+ newcomers are added, including your top 3-4 most wanted.

How do you feel about this?
Which characters would you actually be sad about not returning?
Can newcomers effectively replace the current cast, or is there not enough good depth there?

Bad. Too many characters I want would be cut. A lot of their replacements would be much worse characters.

Worst case scenario for sure.
Probably wouldn't even buy the game.

I would think it's a bad decision, but I'd probably still buy it considering my top 3 Smash characters are from 64.

The reason the characters who are in right now are in is because (most of them) are the biggest all-stars Nintendo has. Replacing them would result in a crappy roster. The game would have to be really freakin' good for me to agree to even buy the game.

There has to be some Wars characters then, right?

I approve.

I probably phrased this wrong, but I'm actually wanting to hear what specifically you would miss from the game.

I agree it'd be a tough sell after the original idea, but which characters would you actually be sad to lose, if you got your top 3-4 most wanted an ~25 more newcomers.

In my case, I'd mostly be upset about Ganondorf, zelda, Marth, and falco; while I wouldn't care too much about IC's, Lucas, ROB, etc.

The chars I want would lessen the blow, but I'd still be slightly upset overall. I'd absolutely buy the game though
