    Bandai Namco is working alongside with Project Sora to develop SSB4. Does this mean some Namco characters will appear in the game? Or maybe this game will be made faster? Either way, expect awesomeness.

    You can't just expect the game to rot just because Namco's helping. In fact, I think it will be better. Besides, do you want this game to get delayed just like SSBB?

    That's the first thing that came to mind. Imagine Yuri from Tales of Vesperia? Would be epic.

    We don't need another JigglyPuff move set. :lol:
    ...,but for a smash ball power, he can turn giant or invincible while turning everyone else blue.

    There's only a few Namco characters I'd like to see in the game.
    I think it would be cool to see a character from a franchise that no one would predict be included like they did with snake in brawl.
    Even though he wasn't as good as I had hoped, it was still cool. Since assassins creed if finally coming to a major nintendo console, maybe they'll throw in one of those characters. :)
    I just hope the 3ds version won't be some stripped down crap compared to the wiiu version.
    There's definitely some Namco characters they shouldn't throw in there. Some silliness is okay, but I hope the majority of characters are the usual beloved nintendo characters.
    I could handle dig dug but pacman wouldn't fit imho.
    I can't wait for more official details! XD

    Some Namco characters would be pretty badass in Smash Bros, along with some Namco Music. Anything else would be horrible, just horrible.....

    Hopefully Nintendo won't listen to Namco Bandai once they start talking about DLC. People complain about Capcom's In-Game DLC too much, but that's because they don't know about Namco Bandai. They started the trend first and they still hold the title, numerically speaking.

    DLC
    DLC in Smash Bros would be a sign of the apocalypse. But seriously, i hate how Namco handles DLC lately, the DLC they had on Tales of Graces F was ridiculous. 4$ for a new costume

    It's probably just help with making models etc, with directions from Sora of course, I don't think Namco will have much involvement with actually deciding gameplay elements, included characters, modes etc.
    It's usually like this with most ninty collaborations, just like in the past with collaborations like Sega and F-Zero or Capcom and Zelda.
    With minish cap for example the Zelda team still were the ones steering the development of that title, I don't expect this to be much different since it's a series Nintendo definitely wouldn't like to screw with.

    This won't be another Other M scenario unless they for some reason gives Namco too much freedom, which they won't.

    They made this decision since they need to put a lot more work into the graphics this time around. I'm expecting gameplay, style and music to be what Sakurai wants.
    Judging by how competitive and complex Uprising was I'm expecting this game to be 10x better than Brawl, at least.
    Especially now when Nintendo wants to have more titles with deep experiences than before, they've been saying this a lot lately and they have been saying that with Pikmin 3 too.

    Brawl sucked and was casualized on purpose with slow paced fighting and stuff like tripping.

    It looks like the cast for Smash Bros. IV is about to be, uh... "inflated".
