I don't think I'd like Geno to return, but Professor Layton and Waluigi deserve a place.
Woo hoo!

Personally, I think Megaman's Final Smash should be the Black Hole Bomb [Megaman 9], but that's just my opinion. :P Charging a Buster Shot should just be the Neutral-B, and nowhere near as powerful.

Also, I love how the images on Geno and Megaman's pages are messed up :P

as all ways you have some "not gonna happen" choices

little mac and sukapon arent out of the question but as far as i can tell balloon fighter and takamaru are the most popular choices for retro characters

bowser jr is the most popular choice for new mario character (along with toad) and k.rool is also quite a popular choice but hes got to compete with dixie who was almost in brawl

pac man and mega man are very popular 3rd party choices (though id prefer pac man not to be in it)

Smash Bros Wii U: 12 characters who should be in the game

Postby smashbros-kid » 23 Nov 2012, 17:50

I agree with most of them. Layton, Little Mac and King K Rool would be awesome. Pac-Man would be cool but he'd need to be done properly. Mega Man, while I'd hardly say I'm a fan, would fit in Smash perfectly. I'd much rather have Ryu from Capcom but I'm sure more people would be happy with the Blue Bomber.
Can't say I want Waluigi. I just don't see him as a big enough character to justify a slot. If the roster is smaller this time round I definitely think there are bigger names. I'm not quite as hostile to Bowser Jnr. as he's a little more unique in my opinion, especially if they give him paintbrush moves from sunshine. However he'd need to be unique. Not some faster, weaker Bowser. Come to think of it I'd love to see how he'd look. Bowser looks amazing in Smash and a Bowser Jnr. With that design would be incredible.
As for the rest, Geno would be awesome but we all know the rumours from brawl. Some say he was considered and there is a Mario RPG track hidden away on the disc. Travis and Jack aren't anywhere near big enough to be in Smash. Between them they've had 3 games? I can't say I've played them. Mr Driller makes sense but I think Pac-Man is far bigger for Namco and they should only have one character per 3rd party (that means no tails, knuckles or shadow nonsense sonic fans!)
Hi.
Thanks for reading, you know its nice to see people like you reading what I have to say, and I aplaud you for puting up with my bad gramar and spelling mistacks.

I think PacMan is a must and I'd be so incredibly layton'ed if he was to have been left out the roster! I'd also love to see King K Rool and Ghirahim from Skyward Sword. Also how about having Tabuu (main villain from Subspace Emisary) as a playable character? If not him then what about Generic-Looking Action Figure if he's a new IP? Come on, he just screams Smash Bros haha 8)

Good list ONM but I highly doubt Sukapon and Jack from Madworld will be in it. However, I would love mega-man and Pac-man in as they would fit in perfectly!

Final Smashes? Good one.
And no, Layton shouldn't be in the next Smash Bros.; not to sound harsh or anything, but, it just seems like he wouldn't fit. Doesn't seem like the fighting type and I wouldn't exactly say he's a true Nintendo character like Falcon or something.

Probably several more when the game is nearing completion, trailer-teased, secrets leaked, etc etc

Surely Mega Man's final smash should be his Hyper Mega Man transformation from Marvel vs Capcom?

Or combining with Rush and flying around shooting things like Diddy Kong with his jetpack?

Oh god, not this again.

They're all fine, except Layton - as awesome as he is, you're totally missing the point of his character. He's an actual pacifist and uses brains over brawn, and not to mention, he's a polite British gentleman who enjoys a cup of tea. Does he sound like the kind of guy who'll fit in a fighting game to you? Let's face it, he's not a fighter guy. He's an intellectual guy. As totally epic as it would be if he really did get into the roster, it would just be a big OOC moment for him.

Any new characters that are in the new smash bros are probably going to be modern characters from games released at a similar time. With that in mind, I highly doubt that Geno or Little Mac are going to be in it. And I really can't imagine Layton being in it, he would just look completely out of place. What we need is some more modern characters that has fighting potential, so I think Mega man would be ok. But don't get your hopes up on most of these characters.

No. No Pac-Man. Absolutely not. I wouldn't mind Bowser Jr, Mega Man and Waluigi as playable characters, the rest won't make it further than Assist Trophies at most. But no Pac-Man.

I remember the letter to ONM about how Layton and Luke should've been in Brawl and how they could've worked like the Ice climbers *sigh*

Oh God YES! Why didn't I think of that?!
By the way, I've got a feeling that the Pac-Man idea may have been influenced by me. Or maybe not. :wink:
I've got two words for you, people: FALCON and PUNCH!
