Takamaru -and- Captain Rainbow. Waaay to Japan-centric.
1/10.


That's two characters. The game is made and sold in Japan. I'm sorry, but I think that's a very dumb reason to vote low.


Sakaurai has stated that Smash has an international appeal, and he can't just focus on Japan. Plus, they're both from obscure games, each only having one in the series.

It's a pretty decent roster, especially with Ghirahim kicked out of it.

I don't think Captain Rainbow will get in, though.


Ghirahim does seem weird, I wouldn't really like him in :p
Also, HI! I'm pretty sure I remember you on the psasbr board \(^_^)/


You do? I was only there for a very short period of time.

Marth and Roy were Japan only when they got in, but now they're international.

Same with Earthbound.

A Japan only character doesn't mean they have no chance or place in Smash Bros. Also, a character being put in Smash Bros while having appeared in one prior game is not unprecedented.

Well, to be fair, FE was getting up to its 6th game around the time Melee was released and it was pretty popular in Japan.

Same with Earthbound.


You mean Mother 3. Ness's game was released in America.

Yup, that's what I meant. I always get them mixed up.

Overall very good. Only problems are Mii, Chrom, Pac-Man, and Genesect. Genesect especially only has the spotlight for this one little point in time, and Sakurai made a comment that gave away he didn't even know about it. So there's almost no way Genesect will be chose. But you still have most of the essentials.

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

I believe Sakurai made the statements of wanting to appeal internationally after Melee. Yes, there is Lucas in Brawl, so I'm not saying it's impossible for a Japan-only character to happen, but when you mix obscure, plus region exclusive, plus one game "series", it's not a pretty combination.

And remember, my 1/10 is an opinion of how much I would enjoy that roster, not how likely I see it happening. I wouldn't enjoy playing as characters whose games I haven't played as much as characters from games that I have played.

Took points off for cutting Lucario.

I like it.

I'd replace Rainbow with Dillon.

So I'm still waiting for Daisy to reappear in something that's not a spinoff.
I'll probably end up dying first or something but optimism is fun.
