This DLC will be an add on to the new Smash Bro.s title. I've had this idea for years, me and one of my buddies started solid work on it. So far we have named it Dooms Day and it's focus is on all the villains of Nintendo fighting for supremacy. If anyone is interested in getting more in-depth info on this feel free to e-mail me at falconsfan301@comcast.net.

Well as great as the idea might be Nintendo will probably, and unfortunately, ignore you, probably because thousands of people (probably every year) send ideas into Nintendo, and I think I remember reading something somewhere once that said that Nintendo does not take in new ideas...

It's a pity that they probably won't listen, but send your idea in, and see how it goes...

I am aware of my mistake now. I most likely come off as a spammer trying to get an e-mail list. Just for verification sake you can find me on twitter @TCompton301 and on Facebook as Thomas TC Allen Compton IV. I'm actually currently attending school for a degree in game design if that is any consolation.

Yeah I read that too but through networking I've made connections at the Baltimore branch of Nintendo. If I can get a polished enough prototype or GDD in front of the right people through my connections there may be hope. That's another reason I like to pitch the idea to as many folks as possible to get feedback.

I guess If you present a prototype to them it will hopefully be more successful, just don't scribble stuff on a notepad and send it in, which won't be successful at all! But it sounds like a great idea, and even one that I'm surprised Sakurai and his SSB teams haven't thought of over the years so good luck!

I'm hoping with this idea having success that Smash Bro.s can gain some "mature" credibility. With it being the villains I plan on making things a bit more violent without treading Mortal Kombat territory.

You're friend works at Nintendo?

Well my uncle works at Nintendo. They're already developing my DLC.

Too little too late.

Gaga will ride in on a unicorn as she enters

In a way exhausting
we're problem solving
Drink 'til she's attractive
We're PARTYNAUSEOUS
Talking 'bout diplomatic
I brought my plastic
Making that peace attractive
We're PARTYNAUSEOUS

I guess that the SSB series could use a bit of 'maturity', but I just think that that could actually be a great storyline anyway...

If you're honestly wanting to pitch something to Nintendo, the less you post about it publicly the better, my friend — if they have the least suspicion that the idea isn't yours and yours alone, they can't buy it from you! Good luck with your pitch! :3
