Sakurai: "No way" future Smash Bros. games will have as many fighters as Ultimate

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Sakurai: "No way" future Smash Bros. games will have as many fighters as Ultimate

Cutting characters will get them backlash no matter what. Nintendo and Sakurai have somewhat driven themselves into a corner with this game. Personally I’m not a fan of cutting content, some 3rd party stuff could be excused, but overal I want to see things move forward instead of backward. I don’t see why, easily put, they can’t just copy-paste what they have and build further on that.

Idk if it’s being driven into a corner, I think it’s more that Sakurai just continues to push for bigger and better with each installment he’s involved in. As he stated for a long time, he treats each developed game since 64 as his last. So he will put his best foot forward every step of the way until the game is completed. That’s how he is.

People mix his words as if he wants to make Melee or Brawl his last game.

In fact, it’s been an issue that people seem to have twisted his words in the past.

here are some examples in this article by Source Gaming:

They could at least change the Echo Fighters into their own unique fighters. Dark Samus would work much better with the Phazon-based attacks she had as an Assist Trophy, instead of just being Samus with a creepier design.

We keep talking about reducing the cast and you keep suggesting to expand it. How about just getting rid of Dark Samus? Do really need it? Lets pretend that the next smash bros was going to be reboot with a cast of 30 playable characters. Lets pretend only 10 of those characters will be returning characters. Why should Dark Samus Return? Between Ridley and Dark Samus, Ridley all the way. Why have Dark Samus take up a slot?

Because Dark Samus was a highly requested character and it would only make sense to change her into her own character. I didn't say add a new character there, I said make her more unique from Samus, which wouldn't take up an extra slot.

All characters in Smash are highly requested..... Ok fine, maybe not Terry Bogard. What makes her Special? If Dark Samus added to next roster, its taking up a slot.  I gave you conditions and you completely ignored them like I knew you would.

Dark Samus is special because she's an important part of her home series' lore, so she's too important to be cut.

If you knew that I would "completely ignore your conditions", why are you bothering talking to me? I'm not even the only one who opposes what you say, so don't single me out.

Dark Samus doesn’t necessarily take up a spot in Ultimate and it wouldn’t in the hypothetical next game. Sakurai even said clones (later known as echoes) were like extras or “free dessert.” DS is a character that the dev had some time adding into the roster without spending too much resources and time. Sakurai already makes the finalized development plan for his games, thus, the roster would be set before the actual development starts. Things can somewhat change and echoes can be added during development.

I think less may be more in this case. I mean fans are really scraping the bottom of the barrel with their most wanted characters at this point. Bandana Dee, Waluigi and Geno to name a few. Not only characters with no personality, but they barely have any characteristics.



I can see the next few titles losing and gaining characters, not unlike Brawl and Wii/3DS (fucking hate the name for Smash 4). Then, when everyone is itching for it... Smash 9 will be Super Smash Brothers Penultimate.

Odd thing to say. I would like to see a spin off in Smash Brothers. Maybe a Power Stone style Smash game as there next title.
Honestly Ulimate is enough, there really isnt any reason to make another with a smaller roster. Unless they can leap and bounds improve the visuals.

Or crazy fun new mechanics or game modes.

You know another thing that needs to change? Movesets. Would make returning characters more interesting.
