So since no one has done one that I can see, and this is our last chance before they probably reveal some more in the direct, let's do a character prediction thread! We have the advantage that we don't have to think about returning or cut characters, everyone's here, so that part's easy. However, we already have 10 additions over Smash 4 announced, and we've been warned we won't be getting many more. We probably will get some though, just not many. If we get 5 more characters from now until release, that would be 15 characters added over Smash 4, or about as many as were added between 64 and Melee, more than between Melee and Brawl, and almost as many as between Brawl and Smash 4, so 5 seems fair no? I'm sure we all have our characters we want but know probably won't get in, so list your top 5 most wanted, and in a separate list, the 5 you think are most likely, and if you feel like it, why you want/think they'll be in, any runners up, etc.
Edit: So a lot of us had a good day today, I'd say. We got 5 characters, and it sounds like there will be more. Plus you got to figure there will be DLC characters too! New rule: Go wild, predict whatever you want, because apparently Daddy Sakurai will deliver! At this rate, I'd bet we have 3 more characters not counting echos, not counting DLC. Sakurai seems to be using Echos to pack in as many extra characters that people wanted as he can. I could see there being a few more echos yet as well. And I think we'll get DLC again because Nintendo likes money, and I'll bet since Sakurai did DLC characters before, he'll do them again, so keep that in mind.Last edited by HylianSwordsman - on 08 August 2018
