There’s no telling which other third-party characters will make it into the next game, and that’s assuming that there will be any at all. Sakurai has just recently informed gamers that he’s focusing less on roster size and more on quality, so there won’t be much room for newcomers. Of course there will be new fighters (it’s the largest appeal of a new instalment after all), and we can’t wait to see if any of the famed third-party mascots we made mention of will appear.
Honorable mentions go out to the following:
- Sora from Kingdom Hearts
- Nobunaga from Nobunaga’s Ambition
- Tails from Sonic the Hedgehog
- Raiden from Metal Gear Solid
- Nightmare from Soul Calibur
- Ryu from Street Fighter
- Crono from Chrono Trigger
As the set of Smash Bros. games progresses further and further in their respective development cycles, we can’t help but be excited for the final products.
What did you think of our list? Who would you have liked to seen added to it?
