Next Smash Bros won't have more characters

Don't expect a significant number of new characters in the next Super Smash Bros. games for Wii U and 3DS. That's the message from creator Masahiro Sakurai, who is more focused on quality than quantity, and believes the series can't feasibly expand with many more characters.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl had a massive 36 characters, up from 25 on the GameCube and just 12 in the Nintendo 64 original that nobody thought would sell.

Just don't expect that number to continue growing on the Wii U, reports CVG.

Sakurai insists that Smash Bros. has reached its limits in terms of the sheer number of characters, and needs a change of direction to progress.

One such innovation is the connection between the 3DS and Wii U versions of the game, which looms as a major feature.

Perhaps 40 characters would be a nice round number?

That's taken it out of context a bit.

I'm definitely expecting some newcomers.
King K. Rool, Ridley, Little Mac, Isaac and a couple third parties (Megaman and Pacman are my guesses), as well as the return of Mewtwo. After that it's pretty much unimportant/obscure characters.

Same haha
Ghirahim or GTFO
Expected this.
Does this mean no Waluigi?

Oh.... what a terrible day... surely without this vital character...

*snickers*

Okay I cant say that with a straight face!
I hear this quote so many times it's a wonder idiots keep on spreading it and misinterpreting it.

On the contrary though that's not a bad roster but there's a few things i would change.

First off. And i don't mean to diss Fire Emblem here. But i really don't think FE has enough on it to get 4 reps. I mean it takes a year to even reach our countries and sales don't ever seem to do it so well here. Though the latest FE has been very successful and that is why i reckon we could see Krom as a 3rd rep or even taking Ike's place.

Instead of Black Shadow i would probably go Samurai Goroh.

Now that Namco is at the helm. I'm willing to bet they'll have a rep for all their hard work thrown in. And Pacman is the best bet. And makes the most sense lol.
i think 40 characters should do
Honestly if they make a better battle system making the characters even more unique i really won't about only 36 characters as Mr. Game and Watch is back im happy.
they well take some out and put new ones in
a whole new roster
Just lazy to make new characters and new fighting moves -_-
I dunno... Namco is notorious for throwing Yoshimitsu into games. So its a toss up between Pac-Man and Yoshimitsu.
I don't know how I feel about Yoshimitsu.

If it was up to me they'd return it to the GC number with maybe some swap outs.

I couldn't care less about half the characters that are in the newest brawl game. I either don't know them. Don't want to play with them or don't want my friends to because they're cheap.


GOOOOOOO kirby [MOG]
IF DIS ROSTER IS REAL I WANT
CLAUS (ALOT)
LUCAS
NESS
PORKY
TO STAY ON THIS they are my satisfaction!
I will just maybe buy it if they left them here
I was hoping they were here. :) *_*
