For this week of my Super Smash Bros. 4 update, I will talk about the so far announced characters and my opinion on them, and who I think should also be added.
With Super Smash Bros. 4 coming out in the winter for the Wii U, it may be a little while, but the 3DS version will be out this summer, so a lot is known about this game, but still so much is unknown. My favorite part of this fighting series, is the characters, so let discuss all the characters announced so far.
Section 1: Old Characters
First, lets talk about old characters coming back for this game. So far, Diddy Kong, Lucario, King Dedede, Marth, Sonic, Toon Link, Peach, Luigi, Olimar & Pikmin, Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Fox, Pit, Bowser, Samus, and Picachu are coming back. Updated versions of a few characters are also in this game, including Zero Suit Samus, Zelda, Shiek, Yoshi, and Charizard. One big difference is that this time. Charizard will be his own person, and characters that have two versions, such as Zelda & Shiek, will be their own characters in this game. I am excited to see almost all these characters, but I dislike have both Link and Toon Link. I say discard Toon Link and put in a new character, I mean that new character could be Mewtwo.
Section 2: New Characters
Several new characters have been announced and they all look good. So far, Greninja, Little Mac, Rosalina & Luma, Villager, Mega Man, and Wii Fit Trainer have been announced. I am excited the most for Mega Man, due to his entire skill set having references to the original games. Little Mac also looks cool to play as, due to his having very quick attacks, and the KO meter. I am not a big Pokémon player, soI do not know much about Greninja, but he does look cool with the water attacks, like Squirtle in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Rosalina & Luma look unique with almost a tag-team design of them both attacking the character at once. Villager looks cool with his attacks and design, just like the Wii Fit Trainer also.
Overall, I am looking forward for Super Smash Bros. 4 and enjoyed talking about the characters this week. For the next update I plan to discuss the so far announced stages.
