New Super Smash Bros. Additions

Posted by Kevin Cortez

New characters have been announced for Wii's Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

French gaming website, Live Wii has revealed that Masashiro Sakurai has announced new playable characters for Super Smash Bros. Brawl, as well as a few who are going away.

New characters avalible on Super Smash Bros. Brawl include Ridley (famous rival of Samus of the Metroid series), Bowser Junior, and the cel shaded link from the Wind Waker. Characters that will be going away are Ice Climbers, Mr. Game & Watch, and the young version of link.

Ice Climbers and Mr. Game & Watch were obviously not that favored by fans, so they were taken out and replaced by Pit of Kid Icarus glory to represent the old school character. As for young Link: He will be replaced by Wind Waker Link, so there isn't much of a difference.

It has also been confirmed that there will be 40 characters in this Super Smash Bros. game, which nearly twice as much as before.

Its gonna be an ace game.

What I dont get though is why they are removing characters? Even if they just straight port them and their levels its better than not having them at all. But my character is still there (Pikachu) so I am fine and dandy ;)

I can't believe they've removed mr game and watch, that guy was a legend. Ice climbers were crap though.

Fake/10. Seriously. You can't believe anything revealed about this game unless it is from this site, which is run by Masahiro Sakurai himself.

To further my point, the Ice Climbers are confirmed. And there is no reason for Mr. Game and Watch to leave. The only characters that should leave are clones.
