jarvisQC said:

WHY? WHY!! Why Nintendo can have a system online like the others systems!? I am not denigrated Nintendo, I was always a fan of this company since Nintedo 64; but , with the Wii (no games for fan, not online open world for games like smash bros,) i was hope than the wii u changes the direction, but now , I don't have hope no more

Is it just me, or does this seem to be... more cartoony then brawl. Not that I really care, just an observation. e.g. Mario.



smash123 said:

alright so stoked for this game but there's a slight problem I have and its that people want all these characters in the game that no one really knows. They should keep all the characters from brawl and focus mainly about Nintendo characters like(bowser jr.,toad,etc.).Also they should have like a little bit of characters from other game companies like sonic, knuckles(sega),
pac-man(Namco)...and I get that its supposed to be about the all these fighters from the universe or what not but they should focus on characters that are popular(Mario, Luigi, sonic, Megaman, pac-man, etc.) People want characters from all these games no one ever heard about and I hate to play the game with a character I don't know.it ruins the fun of the game.I hope when super smash bros universe comes out the character roster would be fun for everyone.



SuperZelda12 said:

Maybe they will keep the original sercet characters like Luigi Ness Purin and Captian Falcon! But I hope to see Toon Link with a unique move set from Big Link and a different Final Smash. Same with Tetra if they can.



ammar003 said:

@Action4jackson why would you want classic sonic if this game is 2d so if they add sonic why would they add classic sonic but i hope paper mario is in the game so good idea



NightmareXIV said:

All these game will leave me with no money I'LL HAVE LESS MONEY THAN NEEDED TO BUY THESE! This is terrible.



masontcarr said:

beaks said:

Smash is the king of fighting games! Great cast of characters, stages, and fans. There newcomers are ok ( little mac was the best new one beside megaman ) and there still adding more! With so many outside characters making an appearance, who's next! I personally wanna see Simon Belmont from castlevania, if megaman can make it in, why not him? ( zero from megaman x series is my second character I want in )

Fade said:

The problem with this game is that the wii u isn't worth it, I want super smash bros but nothing else. I might not be getting this one

Gonna save up my eShop Balance ($41.29) for Christmas! Only $18.70 short of purchasing it on the Wii U eShop since it'll be $59.99! It'll be worth the wait once I save up some cash for a $20 eShop Card within a few months time!



vio said:

Pff. The Wii U was worth it just for Mario Kart 8 alone for me. I get plenty of enjoyment out of the system. In fact, I play it quite a bit more than I did the original Wii.



Drobotic said:

I after I get the 3DS version I'm preordering this before it can go out of stock.I've been so pumped to play this since it was announced.



Cookieman336 said:

I can't say I'm all that interested in the Smash Bros. franchise but before you criticise me let me say that I only have the original for the N64 and, when compared to Brawl (which I sometimes play with my friend, he owns it), it sucks a big one. I do think that this looks very good, though!
