When it comes to what characters and series should be represented in the Smash Bros series, there’s always been a bit of debate over the specifics.  Should third parties be limited to a certain number of slots to avoid overshadowing Nintendo ones?  Do characters from other consoles stand a chance?  Are real life people and characters from non video game media a step too far?  These questions and more always come up.  But do you know what I think? Smash Bros should be everything goes.  No rules, no restrictions on inclusion; just whatever gets people hyped up more.  Keep reading to find out more…

The Wonderful 101 was meant to have Nintendo Characters?

No, I’m not kidding.  Apparently, one of the original plans for The Wonderful 101 was that it’d be 100 Nintendo characters teaming up to go on an epic adventure and take down the forces of evil.  So the likes of Mario and Link would replace the likes of Wonder Red and Wonder Green.  Here’s Hideki Kamiya’s original comment about the game: Originally I got an order from the president of Platinum Games, Tatsuya Minami, asking me to create a game idea that had an all-star cast of Nintendo characters plus characters from other games and that’s how the project started. … When you try and incorporate many characters with high popularity, there are fans who like certain characters more than others.

Super Smash Bros 3DS/Wii U: Developer Direct! Wii Fit Trainer Playable!

The video also confirms Wii Fit trainer as a playable character. A highly unusual choice, albeit one that proves to be oddly amusing. Judge for yourselves. Source(s): Nintendo

This new album they’re working on, that’s what!  Yes, they’re working on a new music album based on the Super Smash Bros series  and are covering music from every single series represented within!  There’s going to be new versions of Mario music, Zelda music, Pokemon […]
