If you were hoping to see someone from Street fighter, Mortal Kombat, or River City Ransom in the new Super Smash Bros., don’t hold your breath. According to Sakurai, it isn’t going to happen.
“The biggest feature we look at in Smash Bros. is, ‘What does this character bring to Smash Bros. that other characters don’t?’ If you look at… someone from a fighting game already, and people like fighting with this character, from my point of view, it’s like ‘this guy does what this guy already does. He fills the role that this character already has. So while you may like this character and he’s interesting, that doesn’t really merge well, here.” – Sakurai
Now that some of you might have tarnished and broken dreams, who are you hoping will still make an appearance?
