Eight words. That's all it took for Smash Bros fans around the world to get excited about a game that could be years off. Yes, this week Masahiro Sakurai privided the news that everyone wanted to hear when he said "it's fun making new skills for new characters."
After suggesting that the roster probably wouldn't expand beyond the level reached in Super Smash Bros Brawl, it's encouraging to hear that new characters will appear in the game even if it means that old favourites could be cut out.
So who could these new characters be? Well, Sakurai did provide a hint when he said that he was doing his best to bring old characters back to Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS. Is this what you want? We asked you to name the characters you'd like to see in the new Smash Bros Wii U and 3DS games and,as you can see, your list is a mix of the old and new.
10. Dillon (Dillon's Rolling Western)
Dillon seems to have taken Limp Bizkit's 2000 hit Rollin as his raison d'ętre. Just keep rollin', rollin', rollin'; that's all he ever does. While it makes for a good way to take down Grocks, his move set seems a bit limited. Roll into bad guy, tap the screen and repeat. Special move: roll. Final Smash: Power roll.
Still, rolling with the stylus would work well on the Wii U and 3DS touchscreen and it would be nice to have an all-new Nintendo character in the ranks. After all, there aren't many new Nintendo characters to choose from.
