Lol. Remember when Raptor Boost could actually combo?
You know, I just realized. Where the heck is Yoshi? They have all the original 8 (non-secret) fighters from the N64 game but Yoshi’s missing…
He’s been replaced with Toad.
Sakurai on Mega Man: “Maintaining his NES look was top priority.” and “I didn’t just want any 3rd party characters in Smash, but Mega Man is special.”
You damn right, you ingenious little man you… Sonic and Pit got a new lease on life from being in Smash-- Maybe, just maybe this is the beginning of a Nintendo-produced Mega Man title…
A man can dream… sigh…
Capcom wants nothing to do with Megaman anymore, so lets hope Nintendo buys the rights to the Blue Bomber so he can finally live once again.
I’m calling it. This will launch MM’s career, again. 12 year olds everywhere will get to know who Mega Man is, now.
It’s like when Square Enix essentially washed their hands of DQ when they decided they wanted nothing to do with DQ9 and onwards. It’s virtually a Nintendo property now. Maybe the same thing will happen with Mega Man.
Nah chill i still want him in marvel.
Kinda hard for him to be in marvel when the company doesn’t even seem to put the real version of him in any of the fighting games.
I just want more Donkey Kong representation. This is bullshit in extremes. Although I’m glad it’s Nintendo’s Megaman and not any of that Megaman X bullshit.
Mega Man X got his start on SNES, so…
Although, thinking about it… Smash has been in “development” since the Wii U was announced back in 2011. That means that it predates the release of Ultimate MvC3. Maybe the reason Capcom didn’t put Mega Man in is because Sakurai wanted him for Smash? Not the best excuse, but not an impossible one either.
I feel like Shovel Knight would fit into smash even though its not a Nintendo property. A more realistic option would be someone from Golden Sun, or possibly Advance Wars.
Fuck yeah Famicom/Advance Wars.
Advance Wars could actually use some representation I think. Who would you guys suggest? I’ve never played any of the games.
Hawke or Sami.
Regarding Advance Wars: Or maybe that guy whose CO Ability is “Power of Money”? He could be a paid DLC character! …Ow! Stop hitting me!
Regarding Mega Man: Sakurai is right. Mega Man is special. There aren’t too many third party characters who can claim to be iconic of the NES (and part of the SNES) era… he is one of those few. Mega Man’s inclusion is absolutely appropriate; if you were to ask various people to list games they deeply enjoy from that era and contributed to the system’s success, the Mega Man franchise would probably come up several times. I don’t immediately plan to play as him, but I’m very glad he’s on the roster.
it’s a little disappointing that there won’t be more characters
More characters than what? They haven’t revealed anything on what the final roster count is going to be.
