Sakurai feels the Super Smash Bros. roster is at its limit
We’ve already heard of the collaboration going on between Team Sora and Namco Bandai for the new Super Smash Bros. We also had a chance to get a sneak peak of the art thanks to a recent tweet in the banner above. But now it has come to light in Nintendo Power that the roster might not be changing as much as people expect. The game’s director Masahiro Sakurai admitted in an interview that “a change of direction may be what's needed”.
Where Super Smash Bros. started with a 12 character roster, Melee and Brawl topped 25 and 35 characters, respectively. Plus, with Namco Bandai playing such a large part in the games production, it seems like the opportunity for crossovers is endless. So it doesn’t look like you will be getting a huge roster, but if you could have one Namco Bandai character in SSB4, who would they be?
