Locked: Super Smash Bros. Brawl Official Updates

I was guessing awhile ago that Ness would be gone. It's in this thread somewhere...

I doubt Ness will be gone. He is the creator's favorite character and the "Franklin Badge" item that was announced is from Ness's first game, Earthbound.

It's very unlikely Ness will be gone, for 3 main reasons:

1.)  Ness has been stated by Sakurai many times to be his personal favorite, and he's being given a lot of creative freedom in development.

2.)  Ness has appeared in BOTH previous Smash games, making him not only a veteran but a series staple.

3.) Mother 3 never has been and never will be localized outside of Japan.  Super Smash Bros. Brawl is a game that sells well in all regions, and best in America.  Marth and Roy were fine because Fire Emblem was being localized at the time of their inclusion.  Lucas (alone) would be pretty ridiculous.

Er... actually the Franklin Badge was the Mother 3 version (according to Starmen.net who is almost done translating the Mother 3 rom).



I would expect an additional Mother character alongside Ness before thinking Ness would be gone.

Why would Sakurai ever do that....

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

however, other than Ness being gone his predictions seem pretty reasonable... I guessed between 35 and 40 characters while including Zero Suit Samus. Also six being gone works out pretty well if he's right about Ness:

Pichu
Ness
Y. Link
Ice Climbers
Dr. Mario
Roy



Darn you Erik Aston. Posting things before I have the chance.

I do beleive thois guy BTW, and here is why. Before Melee there was some guy who posted the entire roster on GameFAQ. Most people thought it was fake, with joke characters like Game&Watch and Dr. Mario, and the two Fire Emblem characters (no one knew of) Marth and Roy. Come the Japanese release everyone had egg on their face as he was right. Also, this is far froma lucky guess. The odds he's pikc the right week are great. There has only been one other week with two characters updates, and ther eis the possibility Sakuria would never do that again. And here we are, wtwo character updates like he said.

Also, a few thing. Ness was going to be replaced in Melee, so him being removed isn't farfetched. Also, Ness and Lucas are the same character. I also beleive Game&Watch will go, not Ice Climbers. Ice Climbers represent the Famicom, which no other character represents. A lot oif the early NES franchise in Smash are from the Famicom Disk System, which in nintendo's eyes, are different machines. Ice Climbers were chosen to represent the Famicom over many other choices due to their uniquness, so I assum they'll be back again.

ALastly, he says some popular characters will be AT. Buymmer. I think Dedede and Diddy are safe, ranking the highest on the Brawl poll. Maybe characters like Wolf or even Ridley. This is going to be interesting.



Yeah...I can see Ridley being an Assist Trophy...it's more practical.

It'd still kick ass I suppose.

I've seen some people (not here) suggest Poo from EarthBound as a playable character. Can you imagine it?:
