20 characters we wish to see in Super Smash Bros. on Switch
March 27, 2018 - Super Smash Bros
Super Smash Bros. is entrance to Nintendo Switch, and we know what that means: time for some groundless conjecture on new characters that might or might not be concerned this time around. After all, a new Smash Bros. – possibly this diversion is mostly a pier of a Wii U / 3DS chronicle or built from blemish – is a possibility to see new faces.
With that in mind, we’ve put a heads together and come adult with 20 suggestions for characters we consider would make excellent additions to a Super Smash Bros. for Switch roster. Rather than arrange them by any biased metric though, we’re usually going to list these bad dudes and dudettes in alphabetical order, starting with…
Banjo Kazooie (Banjo Kazooie series)
Super Smash Bros. is all about vouchsafing Nintendo fans suffer their favorite Nintendo things, notwithstanding in a opposite framework. Sure, Nintendo might not technically own Banjo Kazooie, yet no volume of nuts and / or bolts is going to stop people from comparing these mascots with a N64. Besides, Xbox trainer Phil Spencer has pronounced he’s cold with it.
Camilla (Fire Emblem Fates)
Look, I’m not a fan of Super Smash Bros. branch into Guys With Swords: The Fire Emblem Fighting Game either, yet Camilla presents an event to do something opposite with a tactical RPG franchise. She wields a large mattock (unique among a Smash Bros. roster) and rides into conflict on a wyvern. Make her an air-focused impression with some good smackdown potential.
Captain Toad (Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker)
Smash Bros. has usually about each member of a Mario family; Mario, Luigi, Peach, Bowser, and Yoshi all exist as their possess apart playable characters. But Toad is relegated to a defense used by Peach? Unfair! Thankfully, there’s fashion for this mushroom-headed sidekick distinguished out on his possess in Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker. So since not go a widen here as well?
Champions of Hyrule (Legend of Zelda: Breath of a Wild)
Lady Urbosa, Mipha, Revali, and Daruk could all reason their possess in a fight, yet since collect usually one? Instead, Nintendo could exercise a complement matching to a Pokemon Trainer impression from Super Smash Bros. Brawl and make these heroes barter in and out, one during a time. Imagine rising an rivalry high with Revali’s Gale, afterwards blustering them with lightning from Urbosa’s Fury. Sound cool? That’s since it is.
Conker (Conker’s Bad Fur Day)
Another skill now owned by Xbox that fans nonetheless associate with Nintendo, Conker would positively have to be toned down for inclusion in a Smash Bros. game. Truth be told, he’s one of (if not the) slightest expected inclusion on a list, yet come on, acknowledge it; it would be fun to see this fractious small boozehound blending it adult with other Nintendo elites.
Crono (Chrono Trigger)
Cloud from Final Fantasy 7 being combined as a guest impression in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U / 3DS was one of those fanciful warn announcements. And while we’re happy to see him included, it seems to us that if Square wanted to send one of a JRPG heroes into a melee, a some-more apparent choice would be Crono from Chrono Trigger. This diversion is frequently hailed as one of a best of all time, and it came to life on a Nintendo system. Get this spiky-haired child in there, already.
Ice Climbers (Ice Climber)
Ice Climbers debuted in Super Smash Bros. Melee and returned for Super Smash Bros. Brawl. They were left out when Super Smash Bros. 4 rolled around due to complement restraints and a enterprise to keep a register matching between a Wii U and 3DS versions of a game. The Switch should have no such limits, that means it’s time to redress that mistake.
Impa (Hyrule Warriors)
Link, Zelda, and Ganondorf are, of course, a many critical characters in a Legend of Zelda series. But that doesn’t meant there isn’t room for other heroes from that universe, and Impa is among a strongest and coolest. Plus, by regulating a Hyrule Warriors version, Nintendo would technically be representing another of a games and, as we already established, a large partial of Smash Bros. is Nintendo display off usually how many things it owns.
Jibanyan (Yo-Kai Watch)
The Yo-kai games never unequivocally took off in a West like Nintendo and Hasbro substantially wanted, yet it’s still full of delightful, charming, and tangible characters. Chief among them: Jibanyan, a cat yokai. He’s got several forms that would relate good to a singular moveset, and tons of costumes if players wish swap skins. Besides, Pikachu needs to collect on someone his possess size.
Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark)
Oh hey, another Rare skill that would be a sip of nostalgia for longtime Nintendo fans. True, Joanna is a bit reliant on guns in her possess games, yet there’s no reason her arsenal couldn’t be translated into this 2D-plane fighter. Hey, if they could make Solid Snake work, they can do a same for Joanna.
I know Krystal is something of a black sheep (despite being a blue wolf) since she comes opposite as oversexualized pandering to a bushy community, yet she’s a legitimately engaging impression who doesn’t get adequate courtesy outward of a diversion she debuted in. And, graphic Falco or Wolf, Krystal would be a good forgive to move in a impression from a StarFox star yet them being nonetheless another Fox clone.
Kunio/Alex (River City Ransom)
This one’s a bit of a low cut, yet behind in a day, there was a array of games starring a hot-blooded tough man named Kunio, grown by Technos Japan. One of a best and many renouned was Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari. In Europe, it was called Street Gangs. In America, we substantially knew it as River City Ransom. This NES diversion was rarely successful in a beat-em-up genre, that Smash also draws impulse from. Heck, we could even give him a missile conflict formed on his entrance in Super Dodge Ball.
Paper Mario (Paper Mario series)
With Mario a certain gamble and Dr. Mario a expected candidate, it might seem like adding a paper chronicle of Nintendo’s heroic plumber would be a box of Too Many Marios. But we consider that given Paper Mario’s graphic demeanour and faith on his reliable hammer, he would be opposite adequate that it wouldn’t feel like a third wheel. If anything, indication him on Mr. Game Watch.
Shantae (Shantae series)
WayForward’s purple-haired temptress might be multi-platform now interjection to her Kickstarted diversion Half-Genie Hero, yet she got her start on Nintendo platforms, and has even guest-starred in a WarioWare mini-game. So really, her inclusion in Smash Bros. wouldn’t be too many of a stretch. With tons of sorcery during her ordering and a cartoonish impression that would fit simply in a universe of Smash Bros., she’d make a excellent further to a roster.
Shovel Knight (Shovel Knight)
This one’s indeed an aged rumor, yet what a good event to make it true! Shovel Knight was crafted as a amatory loyalty to NES games, and a impression even has an amiibo. His signature trowel would make for a singular arms among a engorgement of sword-wielders, and it wouldn’t be too formidable to interpret his pogo stick-like bouncing into a harmful down attack.
Simon Belmont (Castlevania)
Castlevania got a start on a NES, and other than Dracula and maybe Alucard, there’s no one some-more emblematic or iconic from a array than Simon Belmont. His whip attacks would make for some engaging tactics, and a several power-ups could supplement adequate accumulation that he’d be a inestimable addition. Nintendo could even start adding baked chickens as a health liberation item!
Starman (NES Pro Wrestling)
An oldie-but-goodie, Starman is a luchador from a NES diversion Pro Wrestling. With a star-shaped facade and absolute suplex moves, he would make for an sparkling and singular further to a Smash Bros. roster. True, he’s not as tangible as some of a other entries on this list, yet he binds a special place in many an early Nintendo fan’s heart. At slightest make him an Assist Trophy.
Tails (Sonic a Hedgehog series)
Come on, demeanour during bad Sonic, all by his lonesome. The newness of Sega’s hedgehog has ragged off by this point, and now we can’t assistance yet consternation where his best crony Miles ‘Tails’ Prower is. Not usually is this two-tailed fox lovable as a button, yet his ability to fly would assistance him redeem from falls that would discharge anyone else. He’s also famous to be something of a tinkerer, so maybe have him toss wrenches or use gadgets if we wish to supplement some variety.
Travis Touchdown (No More Heroes series)
The anti-hero from No More Heroes already has a clever attribute with Nintendo, carrying debuted on a Wii and entrance shortly to a Switch with Travis Strikes Again. He’s a bit pretentious (though not so many as Conker) and he would be radically another ‘guy with sword’-style fighter, yet hey, during slightest his arms is a laser sword.
Waluigi (Mario series)
