Of course. The next Smash Bros will be a reinvention of the franchise. 70+ characters is too much start with.

Who's saying we'd start with 70+ characters?

Huh? Not sure I get what you're asking..

Do you mean in the next game it'd be too much to have 70+ characters available at the start, or that 70+ characters in total is too much?



Some days I just blow up.

Thought as much.
There's nowhere to go but down with a new game in terms of content.
I'd actually prefer if they port Ultimate, with all the DLC from the Switch's life span, over to Switch 2 and then sell the game on the new characters, stages, modes, and content they're adding for the Switch 2's life span. Call it "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 2.0" or "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch 2." Something along the lines. Because, honestly, I see no need or reason for a Smash 6 after this.

I am making the logical and fair conclusion that millions of Smash Bros fans are going to expect that everything return. I am betting that the next Smash Bros will be starting from scratch. Ultimate was a end to an era.

Now I'm sad.

On one hand, it seems it has to be that way. On the other hand, doesn't Sakurai always lie about stuff like this? I vaguely remember him saying the same thing about Smash 4.

He did? When was that?

I honestly would rather he just did another project. Not only is it hard to top Smash now, but it's getting a little ... well ... tired.

I hate to say it, but I might actually agree with this.

Although ... I would like an actual campaign in the next entry, one that's better than the one in Ultimate ... but I don't know how they'd juggle that. It would definitely sell me on the game though.

They can add characters from their games that are not in smash, and a story mode can come back.

OP: 70 plus characters is a lot so I understand if they trim it down.
