A lot of articles online talk about how the Wii U is the worst thing Nintendo has ever done business-wise, sans the Virtual Boy being a thing. As horrible as this sounds that everyone wants Nintendo to just focus on handheld-consoles, one game may spark the Wii U into life: the next Super Smash Bros. game. And yes, the game has already introduced four new characters into the series, with Mega-Man, Wii Fit Trainer, Rosalina, and the Animal Crossing Villager. And we’re only going to get more new characters in this game, so on this issue of From A to Zelda, let’s talk about some characters the fans would probably like to see.
CHROM/LUCINA/VAIKE – Fire Emblem: Awakening
We all know Chrom is gonna be in the next SSB game. There’s no denying it, but it’s still gonna be pretty cool to see him and his sweet Falchion slash some haters. The question is, will he replace Ike as the new heavy Fire Emblem character? Or will we finally get rid of Marth’s awkward physics and replace him with Lucina? Let me tell ya, the Chrom/Lucina battle jokes would never end #daddyproz. And who couldn’t love Vaike? His axe and better-then-you attitude will surely dominate the roster, and every Fire Emblem fan everywhere will change the players name to “Teach” everytime they play as him.
Hey, as long as all of their final smashes is to marry the person closest to them, I’m set.
DEMISE?!? – The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
The Zelda roster in SSB Brawl was extremely Twilight Princess heavy. Three of the four characters shared their Twilight Princess desings seen from the game. This begs the a question, however; the only Zelda console game to come out since Brawl was Skyward Sword, and to this point, the SSB series has never had more than four characters from any one game on the roster. Could this game potentially leave Ganondorf out and give Skyward Sword some worthy credit? Or will we only be seeing some Skyward Sword stages and cameos? Only time will tell, but Ganondorf hasn’t made any Zelda console appearances since 2006.
DIXIE KONG – Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest and Donkey Kong Country 3: Double Trouble!
FOR THE LOVE OF PIT IT SHOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN THIS LONG TO PUT DIXIE KONG INTO THE SERIES. IF NINTENDO STILL HASN’T ADDED HER I’M GONNA THROW A FIT. HER HAIR-LICOPTER IS THE BEST AND DIXIE IS THE BEST AND DARN IT PUT HER IN THE GAME ALREADY.
I have really strong feelings for Donkey Kong Country 2, y’all. It’s basically Dixie Kong’s game.
PHOENIX WRIGHT – Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
His final smash is only one word: OBJECTION!
PAC-MAN – Pac-Man
Think about it. Namco is now in charge of SSB. Namco also owns the Pac-Man series. It all makes sense. Although I really just want his final smash to be him eating a giant pill which turns everyone blue and they all have to escape his horrid mouth and nightmare driven, “WAKAWAKAWAKAWAKAWAKAWAKA”
FRANKLIN CLINTON – Grand Theft Auto V
If we can put Snake in SSB, we can put probably multi-million dollar characters from Rockstar in this game, too. And what other character will have features such as slowing time while driving and taking selfies (Toon Link, put your hand down, you can’t take selfies with a GamePad)? I want you in my game, Franklin. GET IN.
THE WII FIT BALANCE BOARD – Wii Fit
The Wii Fit Trainer needs a buddy, and that board is just so cute ❤
ANY POKEMON MINUS LUCARIO – Pokemon
Just as long as Lucario is replaced, please. You can even throw in a Farfetch’d and I’ll be satisfied. Heck, bring Mewtwo back. That was legit.
(Disclaimer: Lucario is one of my favorite Pokemon. I just absolutely hate playing as him in SSB)
VIRTUAL BOY – Nintendo’s Dark Past
If R.O.B. can show up in a SSB and actually be a character only used for spams, the Virtual Boy should have his time to shine. His features include three taunts that are passive comments on the Wii U sales being better than the Virtual Boy itself.
A DOOR – Reality
I just saw a sign on the side of a door that said it can withstand a fire for 45 minutes. I think that’s pretty badass, and I would play as that door in professional competitions. After all, love is an open door. Which leads me into…
OLAF – Frozen
He stays positive even in the face of danger. He doesn’t even fear heat, and believes that some people are worth melting for. He is the biggest risk-taker during the summer. AND he doesn’t have a skull. This character is perfect for the dojo scene, and everyone should fear him because he sure as hell doesn’t fear you. When he rocks the stage while you’re there, you might as well Let It Go.
