9 New Characters We Need in Smash Bros Ultimate on Switch, Write This Down Nintendo

  • Published on Mar 15, 2018
  • Smash Bros Switch characters we want -- nay, demand -- to see in the new Smash Bros 2018 roster. Nintendo, grab a pen and make a list with "Detective Pikachu" right at the top.
    So far the Smash Bros Switch trailer has only confirmed inkling girl and boy, Breath of the Wild Link and Mario for new Smash Bros, but there are plenty more characters we want to see.
    Smash Bros Switch release date is set for 2018.

    I find lists like this only carry weight if you present a functional concept that at least covers the basics: Special Moves / Basic Mechanics and a minimum sample of thematic attack options.
    Liking a character who cannot translate to convincing fighter just doesn't work - though they could appear as support like, running a shop or something. (I exclude Support Trophies because I think the very concept of support trophies in a game with pokeballs is offensive and a waste of their time, staff & resources best spent on other things.) . Keep in mind that these moves can be exagerated to work as long as they are related to the source material in a functional way.
    For example of an extreme suggestion Poll Obsessed game developers wouldn't have the vision to consider:
    Alexandra Roivas - "Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem
    Medium-High Endurance. Expert Tier player. Fast ground speed but a terrible jumper who falls fast - emphasizing her being a normal human who does 0 jumping in her games. She's have the Gladius as a weapon using simple but solid hitting attacks.
    Special moves would consist of charge/release moves based on her Rune Spells that would cycle through the Ancients (Chaturga / Xel'Itoth / Ulyoth / Manotrok) in sequence adding slight variation to each Special's effects. Chaturga adding more smash power / Xel'Itoth applying head flowers / Ulyoth would carry an electric effect for a chaining effect / Mantorok would apply more damage but not affect smash power.
    SMASH SPECIAL: Attack Spell: Charge up the Attack Spell but nothing will happen unless you get the 3 basic runes first. You can hold longer to apply Pargons increase size, range & power of the attack at 5 & 7. The attack triggers instantly at 7 but the attack auto tracks the nearest opponent.
    SPECIAL: Enchant Spell: Charge up the Enchant Spell to enchant your weapon. The more Pargons you get the more uses you get out. You can also apply the enchant to held items.
    DOWN SPECIAL: Dispel Spell: Charge up the Dispel Spell to create a blast wave that will push enemies away violently. It can also break shields and while you can take damage you cannot be moves or smashed while charging.
    UP SPECIAL: Summon Trapper: Only has 3 runes but it allows a long range full direction control teleport that will pass through walls. Catching an opponent in the teleport will carry them without and leave them in free fall making them vulnerable to an air followup upon reappearing together. (Whatever surface is closest is where you'll reappear if it would land you in a solid object - this includes the bottom of the stage if your aim is bad.)
    She can offset her bad jumping by holding the Jump to automatically sprint froward across up to 4 Pargon Runes appearing under her feet in the air which can perform her second jump at any point during it.
    FINAL SMASH: Tomb of Eternal Darkness: She opens up the Tomb creating a shockwave that produces a variety or random effects while turning the screen slightly sideways and eerie sounds playing - some real, some fake - to all players. Making them giant but not able to inflict damage and can be sent flying with the slightest touch or actually giant. Making them super star but not actually invincible. Or make it look like the game froze for a few seconds with an error message. Following this event everything snaps back to normal and Alexandra says "This... Can't be happening!?"

    Maybe in a hipotetic Fighter Ballot we will be able to show Sakurai that a lot of people want Phoenix for Smash

    1) S-seriously? What would her move set even be?
    2) While kind of a stretch with rights and Nintendo, at least it makes more sense as a fighter.
    3) See now THAT makes sense!
    4) Okay, neither do those attacks make any sense and Detective Pikachu never did ANY of that. A rather big part of the game was that he was a thinker not a fighter.
    5) I can see your point but I'm actually glad they went with ALBW design. BOTW's forehead and eyebrow combination just freaks me out.
    6) Squidlings were confirmed in the first trailer, stop being greedy.
    7) So out of ALL the rabbits out there, you'll only take the Peach one? And above all it's freaking RABBITS.
    8) Now THAT I support, and it would make sense with MVC3
    9) Captain Toad? Sure, now let's add TETRIS to the roster! Captain Toad can't even JUMP much less throw a punch! I'm starting to think you just made this list as a joke.

    I wanna see the Jack Bros. of the SMT franchise as a Smash character. They could play similarly to how Rick, Kain, and Coo play in Kirby: Allstar Allies. Then, they can fuse to become Black Frost as their ult move. Also, Pixie and Cerberus could be assist trophies.

    Call me crazy, but I think Slave Knight Gael would be more suitable for Smash than Solaire, probably because Gael is more mobile and there’s more opportunity for a suitable moveset. If I had to add any other characters to Smash, they would be:
    Sackboy (LittleBigPlanet)
    The Knight (Hollow Knight)
    Robin (Iconoclasts)
    Buddy Armstrong (LISA: The Joyful)
    Shovel Knight, Plague Knight, Spectre Knight, & King Knight (Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove)

  • R van bergen
    R van bergen 5 months ago +1

    Okay, let's see...1.
    Pauline: While the New Donk City stage they talked about DID in fact come about, it also featured Pauline as a part of that stage, which disqualifies her as a fighter.
    2. Solaire of Astora: This might just be me, but I think Dark Souls is just a little too grim to include in Smash Brothers. Although I did think something similar about Bayonetta at some point, so who knows.
    3. Ribbon Girl: Nothing against her, although she would have to be rebalanced because the scenario they present here, with Ribbon Girl stretching her arms out all the way across the stage, is grossly unbalanced. Sadly, though, I think Arms is too recent a game to have any character enter.
    4. Detective Pikachu: ...Seriously? They make a big point in the game about how he can't fight. Besides, it would be way to confusing having both Pikachu AND Detective Pikachu on the screen at both times, with only the hat to tell them apart. Though, it IS possible Pikachu will get an alternate skin based on Detective Pikachu, I guess.
    5. Zelda (Breath of the Wild): While I would have loved this to be true, sadly they pointed out how Breath of the Wild Zelda is more about studying than fighting, so this one is out.
    6. Pearl & Marina: They aren't IN the stage, but they are an assist trophy. So I guess they got that right?
    7. Rabbid Peach: While I don't think there's anything wrong with rabbit... erm, Rabbid Peach joining, there would be a case to be made that it wouldn't really be fair on the other Rabbid characters. I know that Rabbid Peach is considered the most popular, but is she really?
    But I have to give credit where it's due, and say that this character is at least possible... Even if I personally really don't want it to happen.
    8. Phoenix Wright: While this would be awesome, there's one fairly huge problem with it, and it's one they ironically brought up in their video as a point in his favor: he's already in Marvel VS Capcom 3. Just like Konami had to use Raiden in "Sony Smash Brothers" because they licensed Snake out to Nintendo, so too does Phoenix Wright now stand no chance of making it into Smash Brothers Ultimate, ironically because he's already in a fighting game.
    9. Captain Toad: Of all the ones they mentioned, this one is the one I most want to happen. But the main problem, as far as I can see, is a fairly huge one as far as Smash Brothers is concerned: Captain Toad can't jump. his backpack is too heavy. This comes straight from his own game. Which is a pretty big problem when it comes to a series where the main goal is jumping back onto the stage to avoid getting knocked off into the void below.
    They made a pretty good suggestion for getting around this in "Making the Case for Captain Toad in Super Smash Bros. Switch" (highly recommend you watch this), about how his main move could be emptying out his bag, thus making him lighter, but I still don't think it's all that logical to include a ground-bound character in a game where one of the main methods of transportation is jumping around like a flee.
    Oh, and the captain part of his name? Yeah, I'm fairly sure that doesn't refer to a military rank. It's probably because he's the captain of the mushroom ship he and his fellows rode around in in Super Mario Galaxy, which is where he was introduced.
    I think that's everything? let me know what you think.

    Sora. Sora from Kingdom Hearts getting the pass every time is a crime against gamers that has gone on too long. Beyond that I'd also love to see Neku from The World Ends With You. More topically and with more a recent surge in popularity, Bowsette, the fan made creation based off the super crown coming into contact with Bowser. I'd love to see it in game even if it's just an additional skin unlocked for Boswer and not a fully fleshed out character with different moves at stats.

    if they dont change link's moves so it has rivali's gale, mipha's grace, daruk's protection and urbosa's fury i'd be very surprised;rivali could make an amazing recovery move and use of the paraglider, they could use mipha's grace as a small healing move that works similarly to little mac's punches, daruk could just be an aesthetic change for the sheild or even work similarly to zelda's farore wind, and urbosa's fury would make a great grab attack cap off or even final smash.
