But these are the 60 characters.

This roster is specifically designed to be the most "casual" thing ever. To buy directly into the 70% of Nintendo that most "hardcore" Nintendo fans hate. There are 5 representatives for the Wii series-- just as many as for Pokemon and Zelda, although Mario, being Nintendo's biggest of the big, has 7, arguably 14. It has a serious villain deficiency, but plenty of ladies! It also has almost no Retro characters; just the super iconic Duck Hunt Dog. Because why dwell on the past?

This is a game that is, through and through, designed for casual gamers; they kind of people who play Nintendogs and Wii Sports like they're Zelda and Metroid.

Each one of the newcomers is incredibly fun to play as, and has a unique and totally their own moveset; yes, even the Space Furries.
Ganondorf, Sheik, Wolf, Squirtle, Ivysaur, Charizard, Ike, Lucas, Solid Snake, Ice Climbers, Mr. Game and Watch and R.O.B. were all removed for being unpopular and not well known amongst casual gamers.

Would you buy this game?

... Would you buy it if all 16 Veterans, plus Ridley, K. Rool, Mega Man, Little Mac, Isaac, Shulk, Skull Kid, Samurai Goroh, Takamaru, Ray, Lip, Porky, Wonder Red, and Simon Belmont were Downloadable Content for about a buck apiece, or 20 for the whole set?

I think our definition of "casual" is very different....

Uh... This one might need a little fixing. He is easily one of the most recognizable Pokemon ever- much more than Victini, Jiggs, and Sylveon.

-Tingle: He's hardly known outside of Smash and a few Zelda games. Ganondorf is much more recognizable.

-Star Fox: This series isn't known to many casuals- it's mostly for more retro gamers (it hasn't seen an original game since 2006)

-Marshal, Sebastian T., Monita, Robopup, Nanocarp- Who? What casual fans are super-familiar with these obscure figures?

That said, since you said that everyone is unique and fun to play as, I wouldn't mind this roster too much. Yeah, I think that there are a lot of wasted reps, but if they're all unique at least it'll be fun to play. And, $20 DLC for 30+ characters including the ones that I think deserved to be on this roster would be fine. That's a massive roster (balancing would be terrible), but it's Smash Bros and has the key ones that I care about.

I'm not sure if TC knows this, but the Kanto starters are all obtainable in XY and are heavily featured with the new Mega Evolution mechanic. Also, Ash in the anime had both a Squirtle and a Charizard, so both of these characters have much wider appeal than most Nintendo ones.

I'd be a little pissed, seeing as how around 20 of those characters are best left to be either trophy/pokeball/AT status.
