    Looks like the upcoming Smash Bros title for the Wii U and 3DS wont have more/new characters as the series creator Masahiro Sakurai has said thet in terms of quantity they have reached the limit and that the want to focus more on quality of the product. What you guys think? Do you want more/new charcters or you want the team focus more on the game's mechanics and make it better? Quality or Quantity?

    They must be retarded if they don't want to include more characters. Like they couldn't work on quantity AND quality.

    No, I don't want more characters, I want them to take out the ones that are all the exact clones of other characters like Falco, Young Link, Roy etc etc and then they can add new characters in their places that have new abilities. Honestly, if they wanted some of these alternate characters that have most of the same abilities and characteristics, why don't they just make them alternate skins in the character profile so that if you want to play as Falco instead of Fox, you can switch the skin when you choose your character, but they should be unlockables.

    Well...who could they add? They've got pretty much everyone of note that's popular with most non-gamers.

    EDIT: At least, every Nintendo character of note. But I doubt that will change anytime soon.

    Hmmm, what if they release new characters as DLC? And maybe new costumes for the characters. If Nintendo are focusing more on online features - they are bound to jump on the Add-On bandwagon.

    Then they'd step into the DLC-on-Disc garbage that Capcom loves. You have to give everyone the DLC character artwork in order to play online.

    Take the clone characters and give them unique move sets. That improves the quality of the character selection while making the quantity mean something in one fell swoop.

    I'm fine as long as they replace some of the characters and don't get rid of lucario.

    The world that never was
    Quality is always better than quantity. The characters they already have are a lot and I for one would be satisfied as long Link is there (Which 101% is going to be there). Besides all that, the keyword is "may" so maybe they could add a few more characters, no need to judge anything just yet.

    Are you mad? Don't give nintendo any ideas, the only reason they won't include new characters is because they use the drip feed tactic by charging you for extra characters, capcom charge £9.99 a pop for extra characters, its big buisness for them because they know gullible people like you will buy it in a heartbeat.

    Didn't Mortal Kombat 9 have somewhat of a work-around with that?
    :unsure:
    But looking at Nintendo, the masters of online gaming, they will probably do so :(

    I think it'd be awesome to have the guy from Pushmo (or even Dillon) in there (and maybe some Freakyforms as support items for the heck of it)

    Between insane and insecure
    I strongly doubt this is honest.
    If Nintendo took it's time on making the game, then can have both quality and quantity.

    That was a bit harsh.. I never said I would buy them :(
    But anyways, I hope there are at least one or two new characters to unlock by completing the game. Because a reward being a character that's playable on Brawl or Melee seems less rewarding than a new character no one's played as before.

    You've got to at least add a couple of new characters because that's the biggest selling point.
    Other franchises need representation in what is effectively Nintendo's biggest celebration of its franchises...

    Xenoblade for example, Shulk would make a fine addition.

    If they're busy improving quality "instead of making more characters", they better bring back Mewtwo at some point (with a more useful moveset).


    But I doubt that it will be zero new characters.
    There will at least be two new ones to replace Sonic and Snake (unlikely for third-party characters to get in twice), and they will hopefully also change ALL the clone characters to have unique movesets (which, gameplay-wise, counts as new characters).

    I think this means nintendo characters. Really there isn't much more to add, and hell he could simple be including assist trophies into that.

    To me that would just seem ridiculous. Dont get me wrong its a cute idea, but i think there are alot of different charecters that deserve the spotlight rather then pushmo and dillon. However i think they could make very decent assist trophies. Like the pushmo guy pulling out a part of the stage and it pushes people off the edge?

    They need to add Erdrick and the Dragonlord at least.
    Dragonquest is one of my favorite franchises now.
