Regardless of what you may or may not think of its position within the competitive fighting community, Super Smash Brothers is one of Nintendo’s hottest properties, and a celebration of its all-star cast of characters (plus a few ones borrowed from Capcom, Namco, and Sega).
Its a rather rare and unique title, providing older, more experienced gamers with modern renditions of characters they grew up with (like Little Mac from Punch Out or Mr. Game and Watch), giving them a shot of nostalgia in a fresh setting, all the while welcoming younger fans using well-known Pokémon and the immortal Mario crew.
Speaking of which, the Piranha Plant has been announced as the first character we’ll see added to the roster, and director Masahiro Sakurai has informed the world the list of fighters that will be added has already been decided.
However, that won’t stop me from speculating which characters I’ll get to smash off the screen in the coming months.
I’ve tried to make this more of a realistic prediction rather than a straight up dream wishlist of combatants. As much as I’d love to destroy Dark Samus with the Cole Train from Gears of War, its just not going to happen, but many of these could.
