This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

What do you think the roster would have been like for a SSB on SNES?

The only rules are:

1) Limited to 18 characters. I realize this is more than N64 had, but it wouldn't be much fun (or different) of a game with such restrictions.
2) Only characters from 1996 or earlier (Characters from NES, SNES, Game Boy, or Virtual Boy. No one from N64 or later)
3) Two 3rd party characters tops
4) You may suggest up to 2 levels as well.

Sidenote: Technically, Pocket Monsters was released in Japan in 1995, but for the sake of localization, Pokemon are off limits since it wouldn't come to the USA for until 1998.

Perfectly fine. I actually really like this. It's concise and relevant to the time.

Play Puyo Puyo 20th Anniversary. It's a good game.
Anticipate Puyo Puyo Tetris, though it'll probably be a trainwreck.
