The news that Namco Bandai would be teaming up with Project Sora to develop the next game in the beloved Smash Bros. series was unexpected, but very exciting. Namco Bandai is a talented developer responsible for some pretty memorable videogames.
Even though Sakurai recently admitted they would not expand the roster for the new Smash. Bros. on the Wii U and 3DS, I don't necessarily think this means what people think it means. Maybe this is wishful thinking, but I took Sakurai's statement to mean they would not increase the total number of characters -- not that they wouldn't introduce any new faces to the game. Again, this could just be wishful thinking.
But staying in this positive mindset, if new challengers are added, what Namco Bandai-specific characters would you like to see? There are a lot to choose from! Pac-Man. Klonoa. Rick Taylor. Mr. Driller. The King of All Cosmos. Any of the characters from the Tales games. And, my personal favorite, Monkey from Enslaved.
Would any of these characters be good additions to the Super Smash Bros. cast? What Namco Bandai characters would you love to see make appearances in the game? And what about stages? OMG DIG DUG STAGE!
