@DestinyMan - Four. The Mario franchise has 4 representatives if I recall. Mario, Luigi, Peach and Bowser; all of which are playable from the start incidentally. In my opinion, the Mario franchise can have a fifth representative; same for the Zelda franchise.
Rosalina's playable appearance in 3D World (while awesome) does not guarantee anything Smash Bros-wise . Nintendo news and other goings-on does not translate to "OMG Smash Bros confirmed". While it's a possibility, I will remain somewhat negative and say the chance is slim.
Besides, that way, if I'm wrong; it'll be a surprise!

Five if you include Dr. Mario from Melee (which still doesn't top Pokémon's six, or Zelda's six if you count Sheik as a separate character). And since Luigi has never been playable from the start, I doubt that will change.

I agree that Rosalina in SM3DW guarantees nothing, and I'm not entirely sure why anyone would think it does.

@LeVideoGamer - Oh, that's right. I knew Luigi was an unlockable; I just thought that his reveal in Smash 4 = playable from the start but that's not guaranteed. For the record, I do not count Dr. Mario as a separate character Representative for the whole Smash Bros. series as he is the very same Mario in a Doctor's costume. That is opinion, though, not fact.

I better clear up my point - when I said Representatives, I probably should've mentioned slots. As @LeVideoGamer said, the Pokémon and Zelda franchise has had 6 or so Reps throughout the series while the Mario franchise has had 4 (5 if you do include Dr. Mario); further helping my point that a fifth/sixth Mario Rep would be acceptable. However, I should mention Representative slots per game. In 64 - Mario/Pokémon had 2 Reps, Zelda had 1. This was boosted to 4 Zelda/Pokémon Rep Slots and a whopping 5 Mario Rep Slots in Melee. In Brawl (stay with me here!), Mario's Rep Slot number was reduced to 4 but otherwise, stayed the same. For the upcoming Smash Bros., boosting Mario's Rep Slot number back to 5 wouldn't be unreasonable, and as I said earlier, the Zelda franchise also deserves a fifth slot. Pokémon too, I suppose.

@DreamyViridi Fair enough.

Personally, I think that Mario, Zelda and Pokémon are perfectly represented already. I think four reps per franchise is the perfect number, the most important characters are already playable, and almost any other character added to those franchises would just be filler. The only exception to this at the moment would be Mewtwo.

I'd prefer it if brand new characters represented new franchises, rather than oversaturate existing franchises.

@LeVideoGamer - Agreed. I mean Mario has potential candidates that I wouldn't call filler but the most important ones are already there, so I'd like one more but four is already appreciated. I can think of one new franchise rep that practically no-one would expect.

I put Wii U pics in the Wii U thread and 3DS pics in the 3DS thread.

I've noticed that Sakurai's been changing his rate of posting, which can be complex for someone like me who gets up at a certain time to see it and share it. Getting into a 2 AM biological clock routine gets thrown off when Sakurai posts a picture at 1 AM my time like he did on Tuesday. He even used to do it 4 AM my time.

Oh wow, hmmm, I will post pics on the 3DS too, and he post pics at about 12 in my time. I am GMT +2 you?

I don't know, but I've got the feeling something gets revealed on the 21st November.
It doesn't need to be a character.. Maybe a 3D World Stage.. or better, since Rosalina is in 3D World, a Galaxy stage?

We have to see and wait.

Mario and Zelda are both fine with the current number of slots they have. Sure they the main series games only have 4 slots, but Wario and Yoshi are both Mario characters, and are not really associated with their spin-offs as much as they are Mario. I'd much prefer Nintendo give some other franchises some representation, beyond simple Assist Trophies.

I disagree. They made them as more like their spin-off incarnations more than their Mario roots in Brawl. Wario has his WarioWare outfit by default, and WarioWare and Yoshi's Island are their home stages respectively. Sure, they started as Mario characters, but they've made names for themselves, and Brawl showcased that. (Melee did for Yoshi too.)

I do agree with this, though.

@OdetninAges: I have to respectfully disagree. Games with Yoshi pretty much always have Mario anyway (Yoshi, Yoshi's Island, Yoshi's Island DS, New Yoshi's Island). The original Yoshi's Island was called Super Mario World 2. Wario has done much better at establishing himself as his own character, but even then, his appearance is still just that of an evil, brutish Mario.

I'm surprised to see they actually implemented a gravity system just for this level. I have a feeling this might become a really popular stage as an alternative to Final Destination.

Awesome screens! And just out of curiosity, what controllers will Super Smash Bros. U be supporting? Normally I'd opt for the Gamecube controller, but it's obviously not compatible. The Wii U gamepad would make a fine replacement, but seeing as how you can only use 1 per system basically means we have to use either the Wii U Pro controller(which i thought I'd Never be buying...), Wii Pro controller or Wii remote/plus....

Seems like the Wii U pro controller would be the best alternative, the Dualshock-like analog stick layout on the Wii Pro controller felt akward as did the original classic controller which always left the WaveDuder' resorting back to the Gamecube pad, or if i had to the Wii remote Side ways NES-Style which made the experience feel more tactile but less complex due to the D-pads limitations vs the analog stick in regards to how subtle you want to move your character ect ect...Plus having to press up on the d-pad to jump ended up leaving you with unpreditable jumping
Looks like I'll be buying 3 Wii U pro controllers, might as well ask dear old santa to plunk two in my radical red stocking for this vonderful' cool spot christmas.

Seeing this stage put a giant smile on my face and I can't wait to play on it! Sakurai's more recent posts have gotten quite interesting, and I can only hope the trend continues.

Mario galaxy?!? Yes!! Why not put in some bosses that could get in the way? Such as digga-leg or Megaleg? Also, now I really can't shake the feeling that Rosalina will appear some where.

AWESOME! It's a mishmash of Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 at Good Egg Galaxy. You can even see Lubba on Starship Mario! Maybe Rosalina will make a cameo too?

Sakurai even posted in the comments section.

Does this mean the only way to KO someone is to send them up?

Wait no, you'll just be able to send them off screen normally. Silly me. I'd had it in my head it will end up like the Kraid stage where you can see the whole thing and not just the top./
