So, that happened.
Sakurai just said that not all previous characters will return for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. That made me particularly sad, because one of the things that I most admired about Brawl was it's huge balanced cast. That and the fact that aside from useless ones like Dr. Mario or Pichu, pretty much everyone that matters was back, even some that didn't look like they would make the cut, such as Ice Climbers and Mr. Game & Watch.
This new installment will be my first chance to own a game of the series. It means the world to me. I used to play at a friend's house all the time, since Melee. But because I don't have that much free income, I could never aford a Nintendo console since the Super Nintendo days. But the portables always will have a special place in my sad heart, so I was one of the first to jump on the ol' 3DS wagon, and I don't regret it.
But it looks I maybe won't be able to play with my favourite characters from Brawl, and the makes my sad heart even sadder, but well, what can I do? Complain like a bitch, of course. I might as well change the name of this blog to 'André Bitches About Everything Super Smash Bros.', but bear with me. Below I will list every character from Brawl and rank among wich ones will make me cry if they leave to wich ones I couldn't care less.
First of all, let's begin with a list of those confirmed back and the ones that are, in my opinion, almost certain to return.
Will be back:
- Donkey Kong
Almost certain to come back, in my humble opinion:
- Captain Falcon
Characters I wouldn't mind being cut at all:
I know it's one of the first roster, but meh.
- Jigglypuff (but it won't)
- Toon Link
Characters that I wouldn't mind too much being cut, but I would rather not:
- Ice Climbers
- Marth (not a big Fire Emblem fan)
Now, it starts to get ugly.
Characters that I would miss a considerable bit:
- Mr. Game & Watch
- Zero Suit Samus
- Diddy Kong
Characters I would enter a denial phase if they don't return, with commentary:
Oh god, no no no no no no no. Don't.
- Pokémon Trainer
To me, the most original challenger of the last game. The one I would miss the most and the one I'm pretty sure will be cut.
- Meta Knight
He's fast, he's vicious and most of all... he's bad (in the good sense). Likely to return.
Some Sonic love is always welcome. Sega and Nintendo are like buddie-buddies now, so I'm somewhat confident.
He's the only one that farts. Come on.
That fat bastard is just adorable. Hammer those bitches, King D. As likely to return as Meta Knight, maybe a bit less.
And that's that. When the game comes out, or the full roster is announced, I will comment here on how miserable I know I will be. I know I have Mega Man, and that's fantastic, and I find the Villager interesting and the Wii Fit Trainer amusing. But, it's too much to ask for more? Sakurai, what is your health compared to my fanboy wishes? Selfish prick.
Wich ones would YOU, dear reader, like to stay on the game?
Please, comment below, and I will love forever.
