And The Fandom Rejoiced:
Super Smash Bros.
Let's face it, there's a reason this series is so popular:
Super Smash Bros.
's nature as a
Massive Multiplayer Crossover
featuring many different Nintendo characters is just about every fan's wet dream. Then, sometimes,
the hype goes through the roof even more.
Any new character that was confirmed to be playable, especially Snake and especially, especially, Sonic. R.O.B. was the only exception, as he was a Replacement Scrappy to many fans' dream additions. He didn't stay hated for long, though.
"Cool, new Smash Brothers game. Wait, what's this, a new Metal Gear? What, they're discussing the game? An invitation? YEAH!"
And a few months later, after enduring years of waiting and April Fools Jokes about his appearance in Melee, Sonic the Hedgehog joins the fray complete with Crush 40's Live and Learn blaring in the background, allowing players to pit Sega's iconic mascot against his long time rival. There's a reason why that screenshot from Brawl is on the main video game page.
A more subdued moment happened when it was revealed that the character-specific battle introductions from the original Nintendo 64 Super Smash Bros. came back for Brawl.
Brawl's Stage Builder.
New Smash Bros?! ON THE WII U AND 3DS?! Our bodies were not ready. For players who were burned by the previous games' lack of balance, especially Brawl, producer Sakurai has mentioned that he may involve the other members in his staff with balance. Also, Sakurai's statement that Brawl won't be the only game in the series with third-party guest characters. The first ones Sakurai stated to be interested in? " Capcom characters". Hell.
Yeah. And in the trailer for the Wii U and 3DS installments, who would be introduced? None other than ! Mega Man Absolutely everyone shat bricks at this reveal.
And let's talk about his moves: Super Arm, Metal Blade, Leaf Shield, Crash Bomb, Hard Knuckle, Top Spin, Spark Shot, Flame Blast, Slash Claw, Flame Sword... oh, and don't forget the
Shoryuken! This doubles as a great rejoicing for many Mega Man fans who think that Capcom has wronged Mega Man so many times, Nintendo is now giving him the respect he deserves.
And the Yellow Devil will show up to some extent. Should we be cheering due to his reappearance or trembling in fear?
Villager comes to town too, and shows off a moveset that looks surprisingly fun. A real shocker, since he was previously considered unfit for Smash Bros.
The female trainer from Wii Fit was met with much surprise, but the majority of the fanbase seems to have warmed up to her inclusion.
They stated that development for Smash Bros 4 would begin after Sakurai's then-current project was finished. Now that has finished production...
Kid Icarus: Uprising And then Namco Bandai was announced to be part of the development team of Smash Bros 4. Considering Namco's track record with Fighting Games in the past, this could probably turn out to be a VERY good thing. Not to mention the fact that this opens up more possibilities for 3rd party characters.
Sakurai has said that they're "having fun coming up with abilities for new characters." As small an update as it is, it's shown people that they're working on it and we have a lot to hope for.
New info will be revealed at E3. It's a good sign that Sakurai and his team are opening up on their progress on the game, and that they're willing to release more information.
Most of Brawl's online play often boils down to beating up Sandbag for many players, given the game's apparent inability to find opponents. Well, guess what, Sandbag beaters? Rejoice!
Gerudo Valley's confirmed as a stage in the new game (The 3DS version at least). Pretty awesome considering that only the theme existed in the previous game.
Get your brown pants (of excitement this time), because the trailer has dropped!
Tripping is gone!
With Peach announced for Smash Bros 4, fans are loving her new design. Can you blame them? ◊
When Conductor Link from Spirit Tracks appeared as a background character, Toon Link's fans feared the worst. But now [the Wind Waker version of] Toon Link has been confirmed to join the fray once more.
Sonic the Hedgehog ( has been confirmed to return in Super Smash Bros. 4. Exactly as it happened in , to boot!) This means Sonic The Hedgehog Mega Man Worlds Collide
Mario, Mega Man, and Sonic are going to star in the same game. Another character seen in the whiteboard drawing released by Sakurai ◊ has been confirmed to return: Which pretty much means we can expect Meta Knight, Wario and a MOTHER representative by now.
Marth. There's a ◊ Super Mario Galaxy stage!
The first Assist Trophy revealed? .
Skull Kid Rosalina and Luma confirmed as newcomers! And Rosalina has her own puppet master playstyle rather than being a Peach Clone
