Your acceptable number of 3rd party characters and who should they be?

Brawl showed us that the 3rd parties (if done well) can be a huge selling point AND fit in fine with the rest of Nintendo's characters. We know that they aren't going anywhere so we might as well embrace them. Especially since they take nothing away and only add to the marquee value of the title. We'll always have those purist that spit on the idea of having guest characters in the series but oh well.

We have two installments this year and I feel that each should have a different 3rd party team of four

Wii U version
1. Sonic
2. Snake
3. Pac-Man
4. Mega Man

3DS Version
1. Tails
2. Simon Belmont
3. Lloyd Irving
4. Zero

This gives us access to SEGA, Konami, Namco, and Capcom for other characters to use as assist trophies, stages, and music.


Edit: I changed the wording up so it wouldn't look like I was saying we should have four different teams of 3rd party characters. There should be two completely different teams of 4. I'm essentially using the Pokémon strategy.

What a horrible group of characters on that 3DS version.

Zero was the only good one on 3DS side

What other characters from SEGA, Konami, Capcom, and Namco would you choose then?

You came in here to ***** and yet you don't contribute.

I think the best would be 0 for both so we can have more 1st parties.

Palutena, Isaac, Ridley, King K. Rool, and Anna for SSB Wii U and SSB 3DS!
SSB is the best series ever made!

None, other than the 4 that actually deserve to be in the game. Those 3DS choices are just silly.

I say 5 for each game, I don't want either game to have exclusive characters unless they are available to unlock through linking games or something.

My 5 would be Sonic, Snake, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Lloyd.

Obviously the 3DS version needs something to differentiate itself from the Wii U version. having different 3rd party characters is a way to offer an incentive to buy both. Especially if you can swap them between consoles

I like your Wii U choices. My only question with the 3DS version would be which Simon Belmont would make it? The old school, Kojima, or current version?

Also, for fan demand, I think Shadow might be a better choice than Tails. I'd personally like Knuckles or Silver, but they aren't as popular.

Game on.

The less third party characters, the better.
