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?

Well, okay, let me reword what I said. Nintendo has a lot to pick from but has to keep balance within the games. If the roster was 99% Fire Emblem characters and 1% everything else it wouldn't be called Super Smash Bros.
There's literally hundreds of Fire Emblem characters that are loads more interesting than Roy and Ike. They could throw in Cullum, Joshua and Seth and all 3 of them would play radically different. Cullum from the new Kakusei game would be a slow heavy hitter, Joshua would play as a speedier quick hitting character, and Seth would be your average speed character with a Horse for a final smash. 5 Fire Emblem characters would fit in much better than half the roster anyways.
There is no such thing as too many characters Sakurai, NO SUCH THING! You here me?
i just want a decent Ganondorf that ain't a clone of a certain racecar driver...
Understandably, Nintendo is running out of characters that could actually be usable in a fighting game (though they somehow made Sonic work). Really I'm just hoping on a few more characters and I'm set.
If Namco is getting in the mix the only character i'd love to see is Nightmare from SoulCalibur. Pac-Man would be nice to see to but, for a fighting game I could think of no one more deserving as a Namco rep than Nightmare. Plus it gives us another villain, and I'd love to see Link and Nightmare face-off again. As for the removing of clones Ganondorf and Luigi will definitely stay. Falco and Wolf might if only to give Star Fox more rep. Lucas probably won't. Toon Link I would like to see stay but he probably won't. Characters that would probably be removed if if they are not clones are Olimar, Lucario, and Ike just because they are characters that really only went along with what the gaming community was talking about and/or to promote other games and movies that people we not buying ie Pikmin, Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn, Fire Emblem Path of Radiance, and Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. Snake will probably be removed for a similar reason with the Metal Gear series getting less popular. Finally the only Melee character I see making a comeback is Mewtwo. Pichu and Dr.Mario will never come back unless made into alt costumes. Roy might but won't for the same reason Ike would me removed. Young Link I really don't think will come back but with Ocarina of Time 3DS and talk of a Majora's Mask remake he just may return. Yes I know I just voted in favor of having 3 Links and maybe 4 is Skyward Sword Link gets his own move set. I most likely thing however is that only OOT/TP Link will stay and Skyward Link could replace Toon Link since he could use The Grapple Claw instead of a boomerang since he didn't use a boomerang, Skyward Strike instead of arrows and maybe have a down b similar to peach's with the molga mits pulling out bomb flowers or other items. Honestly I think they'll cut it down to OOT/TP Adult Link and shirk the Zelda reps to 3. Sadly. Thoughts?
Pac-Man could be in it.
Agreed. The more I hear about this game, the more confused I become. It almost feels like Sakurai is going for a Kid Icarus Uprising installment that goes in a completely different direction.
If you essentially get rid of all the clone characters (Luigi, Ganondorf, Wolf, Falco, Ike, Toon Link, and Lucas) You have seven extra spots. Though many of these characters I think will be retooled, it's looking very possible to me that Ike, Toon Link, Wolf, and Lucas are destined to be trimmed.
They could probably just give unique costumes to certain characters like Mario to make them look exactly like a similar character, like Luigi, but tweak their abilities along with the costumes. (Mario = F.L.U.D.D, Luigi = Poltergust 5000). Does that make any sense?
So basically it's going to be Brawl with all the modes it should have had. And last time I checked other fighting games have way more characters! And how will it be hard to balance this time around if he is getting a team of balancers, rather than just himself. I'm a little upset.
35 was more than enough.
YES! A Klonoa fan! Finally!
Why, bring in Klonoa, of course. I would give them all my money if Klonoa is in it.
To be honest 50 characters is more than enough (if it is even is 50) the problem is that balance is more important than people think... for example people will want to pick characters they will win with and not pick ones they will lose with... (play the 'Project M', its a smash bros hack that balances brawl and also alters some characters move sets) As for clones all they really share are similar 'specials' and animations, for example Ganondorf plays completely different from Captain Falcon. Personally I think they should look at the brawl hacking community and see what they are doing, for example there is a ton of Shadow and Mewtwo hacks meaning people want to see those characters... Personally I want more balanced stages, brawl had some bad stages (New Port City, Distant Planet, Ruble Falls, 75m and Mario Bros to name a few...) But you know, just keep Sonic in the game and i'll be happy (oh and Falco)
Derrick Cole from Breakdown. Mostly because he'd be such a weird choice and he'd have some pretty fantastic moves since you got stupid powerful by the end of that game.
I just hope nintendo doesn't pull another Mario Party 9, and change the gameplay to a casual mess.
Sorry, not in favor of this at all. Sakurai going in a new direction is awesome, and I respect him for it, but you cannot go into development of a fighting game and have the character roster come second. New characters is something way too speculated and way too important to leave behind for a new direction, which isn't something Smash Bros. even really needs.
That's why people should just pick Random most of the time, makes it a million times more fun.
