I'm pretty sure Nintendo themselves would fire you for focusing so much on the 68 character roster that the gameplay horribly sucks because you didn't even include it.

So what did you do? Just make a list of every character you could think of, or what?

A game with a roster that large would have absolutely no balance at all, unless it tooks many years to make simply just to work on the balance issues. It would be a horrible fighting game...

I did indeed forget you, Lip, sorry.

As for the huge roster, if the engine is based on that of SSB4 with a few additions, I'm fairly certain that any character from SSB4 could easily be ported, leaving time for more new characters.

Spoken like someone who knows absolutely nothing about balancing a game.

Yeah.... Umm, if you were in charge of SSB5, I'd be sending protest letters... Sorry. :P

.....I have no idea why, but that brought a smile to my face. I should probably be concerned for my mental health now.

It's pretty bad. We don't need to bring back the melee clones that were scrapped for a good reason, and Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon have too many characters, as does the 3rd party list.

Doug3.14, actually, most of the Melee clones were supposed to make it in. They just didn't because Sonic came along. The only one that wasn't found in Brawl's data was Pichu, but he was a joke addition anyway. And note that with Mario having F.L.U.D.D. now any me saying Roy gets Luigified, they're perfectly different.

Seb_Ramoray, I did forget Monita, didn't I? And Blaziken is one of the eighteen in "that Pokémon Trainer thing". Plus, if you don't think Pac-Man's likely this time around (let alone next time), you're deluding yourself. I have to look again at what else you had trouble with.

I was gonna let this topic die, but you two decided to bring it back.....
