"Make it happen," developer Team Meat says.

Super Meat Boy developer Team Meat is calling on fans of the uber-difficult platforming game to write in Meat Boy as the character they'd like to see added to Super Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS through the new fan voting portal opened just last week. Meat Boy, of course, is the slimy slab of meat that's the playable character in Super Meat Boy and the upcoming Super Meat Boy Forever.

Nintendo's Smash Bros. character voting site opened last week and closes in October 2015. Recently, Xbox boss Phil Spencer said it would be "cool" if Banjo the bear from the Banjo-Kazooie series were added as a DLC fighter. Nintendo hasn't said how it will go about choosing which characters, or characters, will be chosen to come to the game or when players can expect those fighters to be available.

Though future fighters from the Smash Bros. voting site are likely many months away from coming to the game, one new DLC character--Mewtwo--will be available later this month. Beyond that, Nintendo will release another new fighter--Lucas--in June, though pricing has not yet been announced.
