Thoughts? Looks like space in this roster is running low fast. I really hope Falcon gets his announcement soon, or we'll get rage WORSE than lacking Mewtwo over Lucario.

That seems like a pretty large roster already. I never liked the other smash games, but I am going to give this one a try. The larger the roster the better.

Hold up...... 23 confirmed characters? Didn't realize that much characters were already revealed. A roster of 45 characters would be sick! :D

Why hasn't Captain Falcon not shown yet? I'm worried he might be cut since Miyamoto doesn't like F-Zero that much, but I guess it's up to Sakurai decision, right?

Btw, everything is going accordingly to the leak so far.

then where is Dixie kong?

Well, it said it's a tag team like Zelda and Sheik, and they haven't shown Sheik yet.

It would be stupid not to put Dixie in......she is a major kong that even has her own DKC.

I don't think he dislikes F-Zero in general, just F-Zero GX.

It's a sure fire thing Captain Falcon will show up in Smash Bros.

The Original 12 are in every Smash Bros game.

Remember people had worries Ness wouldn't show up in Brawl and guess the freak what? He showed up.

Mario, Luigi, Pikachu, Jigglypuff, Captain Falcon, Ness, Samus, Donkey Kong, Yoshi, Link, Fox, and Kirby will ALWAYS be in Super Smash Bros.

It's those that were in Melee and Brawl that you have to be worried about. Characters like Ice Climbers, Game and Watch, R.O.B., Roy, Ike, Zero Suit Samus, Sheik (yes even Sheik), are not definite. They can be exchanged for others.

Why Zero Suit Samus and Sheik? We saw Samus doing her Final Smash and you know what happens next.

Yet we have yet to see Samus shed her Armor off and we have yet to see Zelda turn into Sheik.

The Characters may not be there. Samus could keep the Smash move, but no change will be made.

Zelda may get a Different Move for her Down+B. Just like how Mario got Fludd instead of his Spin attack in Brawl.

But would it limit the roster by keeping those characters?

No, It wouldn't. Though if I remember correctly in Brawl there were ways you could start out the matches as those characters.

But he did throw a bullshit excuse to not make a new one. At least he doesn't LOVE F-Zero.

As BS as that reason was, you can't say he hates it. If anything, the higher ups just don't see it as financially stable enough to consider it, which is probably where he got the "I thought people were tired of the series" excuse.

He also said that it has nowhere to go now as if it reached its limit, yet they keep making Mario Kart... He should've said it wouldn't sell from the begining.

Again, the faltering sales of the series likely led to that excuse.
