Here's some quotes from the article:

"A Nintendo Direct feed is coming on January 31st, the anniversary of Brawl‘s JP release"

"Little Mac and Takamaru were two of the first newcomers chosen, representing the East and the West."

"K. Rool will be playable, featuring a redesign of the character put forth by Retro Studios. (Could a new Donkey Kong Country be on the way?)"

"Ridley will be playable, featuring his “evolution” from Other M. He and K. Rool were chosen due to high demand."

", Ghirahim, and Dillon are planned to be included in the roster, but these decisions are not finalized"

"Platinum Games wants to include a character, but no decisions have been made yet. Characters from The Wonderful 101 look more likely than Bayonetta."

"A new Yoshi character to be introduced will be playable, likely to originate from Yoshi Land Wii U."

"Starship Mario, Pushmo Park, Cookie Country (Kirby), and Giant Chasm (BW2) will all be featured stages."


This sounds so cool.

Ghirahim, maybe. Ridley, no way. He's way too big, he flies and he shoots fire. I have no idea why people keep asking for him. In order to make Ridley balanced, you'd be taking away everything that makes Ridley himself.

I'm holding out for Marcus Fenix and the little triangle ship from Asteroids, myself.

Some of these rumours are likely true (out of sheer coincidence), but I don't trust the source one bit. Oh some random user on GameFAQs says he works at some company and has insider information...

Sure, I believe that [/sarcasm]

After seeing what they did for the spear pillar, I'd love to see a stage based on the giant chasm.... Though I'd rather have a royal unova stage to represent pokemon, that'd be so awesome.

Meowph, that's right!

Oh look! A Morphloggery.
Oh! eShop Gurus.

This could be real. I would love those stages though especially starship mario. a new yoshi character could be boshi( anyone remember him, i do.) Gringhiam is more than likely to be playable due to his popularity and same with ridley a k rool as stated. We will know though when the nintendo direct airs if it is real and if it is then it is only a month away. Oh and i don't care about ridley's size bowser was originally twice his size so why can't they shrink him down.

Ridley has been shown to not be that much bigger than Samus Aran before, and I see no reason why that could not occur again to allow Ridley as a playable character. If Bowser can get in by being scaled down and Olimar + Pikmin by being scaled up, so can Ridley via scaling.

There are just too many warning flags for my tastes.

  • I believe they stated a long time ago that Ridley was too big. I doubt they've changed their minds.
  • The inclusion of Dillon & a Pushmo themed arena. I suppose Dillon could be a 3DS exclusive character, but I just don't think any eShop characters are big enough to be anything other than an assist trophy. The pushmo arena isn't as far fetched (they had Pictochat & an Elektroplankton arenas), but we'll have to wait & see.
  • Characters getting new designs from new (& in some cases, unanounced) games. Characters have always sported their appearance from the last game they starred in. I doubt that'll suddenly change.
  • Wonderful 101 character(s). Yeah, it's an "all stars" crossover. Would they realy risk adding characters that aren't known faces? If a Platinum character is introduced, I'd say Bayonetta (a known face) would actually be more plausible.

I agree with the people saying Ridley isn't too big to be playable and can be shrunk down. Forget what size he might be in 'canon', Smash Bros isn't in any series canon other than it's own. If Nintendo think Ridley would be a popular character in Smash Bros 4, they'll resize and add him to make people happy.

That's a picture from Melee, which came out 11 years ago. Ridley is based off of his appearance in Super Metroid (the most recent Metroid game at the time) which came out 18 years ago. That's kinda outdated. That's from before Metroid Prime and Other M.
Bowser is still the biggest character in the game, so that's appropriate. The Pikmin characters are from their own universe, so it's not odd to see them normal size among the other characters. Samus and RIdley are in the same universe.
Now, I could possibly see this if the 3DS version were to really be a "Retro" version, but I'm sure that was a false rumor, too. Still, I always think about that from time to time, because it would be cool to see an old school Nintendo styled Smash Bros. game.

And it's not just about size. How would he even work as a playable character?

I heard that Master Chief, Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon, Kratos, and the Kool-Aid Man are all gonna be in the next Smash Bros.

Why do people point to their wrists when asking for the time, but don't point to their crotch when they ask where the bathroom is?
