Does it really matter which characters are in it?

I would rather they reinvent/perfect the physics and balancing with a smaller set of characters, than try to please everybody with loads of franchise reps.

Characters always matter in crossovers.

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.

If Lucas and Marth don't return for this game I won't be getting it.... So yes. Characters are really all that matters.

In a game about mashing up Nintendo Characters, Yes, Characters matter.

Depends on who you're talking to.

Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. In NGE, Doritos are perishable goods

Probably. I mean the mechanics can only be changed so much without being alienating or "controversial". New characters are easier to implement while they can keep the core play style.

I think so..Main reason for me not getting Playstation all stars, was because of the characters..Nobody I really liked. And as a RPGamer, there were no RPG characters.

characters are important in the sense that the star power of the roster is a huge selling point of smash

like even with the gameplay style being as different from the majority of fighters as it is the series would obviously not being nearly as successful as it is without nintendo characters

(also in any fighting game you want a large enough roster to offer a good variety of playstyles but that's dealing more with roster size than individual characters)

at this point both of those conditions are pretty much satisfied so it's not really important to add additional characters if that's the question

people on this board greatly overstate the importance of characters because they either a) really want some stupid minor character that like 3 people care about or b) incorrectly believe that the only way to make the game feel fresh and interesting is "more new characters!!!!!!!"
