A few weeks ago we told you who we'd like to see in the next Smash Bros. game. Of course, it was all pure fantasy - we don't know if Nintendo will ever make another Smash Bros. game but we like to dream so we came up with our list of characters before asking you for your suggestions on the ONM Forum. Our choices were Professor Layton, Little Mac, Mii, Toad, Maxwell, Animal Crossing Boy & Girl, Giratina, Mega Man, Phoenix Wright and Travis Touchdown. Now here are your choices!
Crash Bandicoot: Suggested by Shizle
"He has lots of good options for moves," argues Shizle. "Maybe his Final Smash could be that gun that fires wumpa fruit." Aaah... wumpa fruit. While Sonic collects rings and Mario gorges on mushrooms, Crash Bandicoot picks up wumpa fruit and it's great when he gets hold of his gun and fires the fruit at enemies. Crash is a good choice - while Mario and Sonic have always been considered as the main rivals, people may forget that there was a time in the later 90s when Crash took over from the hog. We'd love to see Crash fighting Mario! Who would win?
Wolf Link: Suggested by Dooby
"I would love to see Link in his wolf form, with Midna riding on back," says Dooby. "She would have some very powerful moves and the wolf has the speed. The Final Smash would be brilliant too. In Twilight Princess you held B to create a field, then you could release B and Wolf Link would strike all enemies within the field. This could be a deadly Final Smash." Too right, but with a move like this wouldn't everyone want to play as Wolf Link? Still, Link changing into a wolf was one of our favourite moments in Twilight Princess so we'd love to do it all over again in Smash Bros.
Blaziken: Suggested by NintendoAllSTAR
NintendoAllSTAR also suggested Deoxys but we like the sound of Blaziken even if it's a less obvious choice. As NintendoAllSTAR explains: "Blaziken's just such a great Pokémon. I love the humanoid ones the most and the fact he excels in fighting just makes him a top choice for Smash Bros. His brilliant legwork would make him the Hwoarang (a character in Tekken) of Smash Bros. and in combination with the fire element, he could execute some pretty fancy attacks. Sky Uppercut would be an obvious recovery." We could also see Blaze Kick being his Final Smash. And talking of leggy Pokémon we'd like to see in the game, how about Hitmonlee?
Bomberman: Suggested by Lukeo10
Like us, Lukeo10 thought that Toad would be a good choice and he also picked Bomberman. As Lukeo10 says he could "throw bombs and put opponents to sleep." He also suggests that Bomberman could bomb himself for a recovery move. By putting a bomb under himself, suggests Luke, he could be blasted high up into the air. Not sure about that Recovery idea, but with a vast array of bombs at his disposal, the 'man would be a great choice for Smash Bros.
Harry Potter: Suggested by Cormsie
"He could team up with Ron and Hermione and perform a powerful curse for a Final Smash, " says Cormsie. Her suggestion of Avada Kedavra is a bit harsh though. For starters it would kill everyone on the screen instantly and secondly, this unforgivable curse isn't exactly Harry's style. You could understand it if you were fighting as Voldemort or Professor Snape but not Harry. It would be good to see him flying around on his broomstick and perhaps using his Patronus. Although, that may only work on Dementors...
